How it works
Our Programs are derived from the principles of neuroplasticity and neural Activation and by training the ‘whole’ person, enables each client to engage all the resources they have at their disposal to achieve their optimal functional potential, attain greater independence and enhance recovery.
This ‘rewiring of the body and mind’ relies on quality and clear instruction, along with repetition and consistency. It is necessarily ‘intense’, requiring significant dedication and commitment. Our highly skilled team individually tailor each client’s program, providing education, support and training through appropriate exercise, therapy and instruction.
All TNS users, casual or otherwise must be “members” of the organisation. All membership records are maintained for efficiency, safety and insurance reasons (please note all client details held by TNS are treated with the utmost respect and in the strictest of confidence.
“Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must – but make sure that you take that next step.”
