Hi, my name is Sean O'Leary. My Journey to finding pain and performance solutions began in 1990, when I narrowly missed making a final for the 50 metres at the Australian National Swimming Championships and never got the chance again due to a shoulder injury.
Whilst conventional methods such as Physiotherapy and Osteopathy have helped, I found that unless I released the Myofascial (muscle + fascia), my shoulder pain and back pain could not be resolved. This has led to finding the most effective methods of creating Myofascial Release for the best structural balance of our bodies. My approach is wholistic, taking into consideration the balance of the entire body to overcome pain and is now scientifically proven.
I became an Anatomy Trains Structural Integration Practitioner in Florida in 2006. I have extensive experience with hard to solve back pain and joint issues in many age groups including elite tennis players, pre and post natal mums, kids and elderly. I was involved with Fascial research in Geneva in 2015 for using Shockwave Therapy for Trigger Point Release which I now offer as a treatment for many problems including Fybromyalgia. Moving better is always key and I can guide you to a better movement practice with an effective approach to personal training. I have a Degree of Psychology and Human Movement, teach Pilates, Anatomy in Motion and Weck Method with over 20 years of experience.
I also love helping anyone move better for sports and have extensive experience with tennis players as a Movement Specialist from club level to elite.
Myofascial Release(also known as Structural Integration or rolfing) for back pain and joint problems, muscular aches, sprains, and poor posture caused by sport and bad habits. This can be done either in a 30 minute appointment which involves light touch with subtle movement changes that gets results in 2 to 6 sessions. Also, I do deeper tissue work in 1 hour sessions and a proven format 12 sessions can lead to changes years long after the sessions have finished. The connective tissue (fascia- internal webbing that organises our muscles in movement) is reorganised for better function and balance in the whole body. For costs and more information click HERE
Shockwave therapy for fybromyalgia, chronic fatigue and long term unresolved pain. These sort of problems leave the muscle knots deeply imbedded in your structure which constantly brings it out of alignment no matter what treatment or movement method you've tried in the past. The treatment targets these muscle knots and referred pain to unravel the stubborn conditions. For costs and more information click HERE

Personal training. If you have specific goals or past injuries you want to work through I will help you discover your individual blueprint for movement and weight loss.

Laura has used all my services and currently has regular zoom sessions to ensure her body copes with pregnancy after back surgery.
"I now stand and sit straighter and more comfortably than I have in years. My back pain has disappeared and Sean's treatment has helped me to get back on track with my pilates, which I feared I would have to abandon. I was relieved to find that ATSI is not just for fitness freaks. As a middle-aged desk slave, I can strongly recommend Sean's excellent care. His confident and focused approach makes you feel relaxed and reassured, and his treatment has real and lasting benefits." Iris, communications specialist, London, UK

The Myofascial Lines are linked together like sausages. The "meat" being the muscle and the fascia the "sausage skin" that coats and links each sausage(muscle) without separation. eg. the calf muscles have a continuous link into the hamstrings and then into the erector spinae(muscles each side of the spine).
Notice in the exercise below how the how the FRONT LINE lifts and the BACK LINE drops down in a wave like motion as you complete the movement. A similar sequence of motion happens in your body with every step you take as generate ground force from every step we take. The Postural Reset can be done at a desk or a bench and the full workout is found HERE.
