concern is the increased number of performers around the world who are
suffering from physical or psychological dysfunctions. Musicians who
may have experienced disorders or injuries such as repetition strain
injury, tendinitis, focal dystonia, depression or performance anxiety
as well as problems involving voice, hearing or joints can get
advice. We can help you understand the causes for
these conditions such as stress, over working, unhealthy technique or
wrong posture as well as other factors that are easily overlooked.
