Dancers

Osteopath and Nutritional Therapist, Margaret Papoutsis, has spent a lifetime at the cutting edge of holistic performance medicine.

She and her husband were the first osteopaths in Europe to be employed by a dance company (London Contemporary Dance Theatre), and since that time she has been a consultant to a wide variety of leading dance companies and schools. These have included London School of Contemporary Dance, London Festival Ballet, English National Ballet and School, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet and School, Peter Schaufuss Ballet and School, Denmark, along with long associations with musical theatre colleges and West End theatre productions.

In the field of competitive Ballroom Dancing, she has worked closely with several World and British Open Champions and is regularly involved in international training camps.

Margaret Papoutsis' unique approach addresses:
  • Injury prevention
  • Injury treatment and rehabilitation
  • Maximisation of each dancer's technical prowess
  • Specific exercise regimes to address the individual's physical and technical problems
  • Confidence problems
  • The use of other complementary therapies
She is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist and has developed a deep understanding of the dietary problems of dancers. Margaret has completed several post-graduate courses with the National Centre for Eating Disorders, and also has a diploma in Sports Nutrition.

Mrs. Papoutsis has lectured extensively on dance-related subjects. She has taught dance mechanics and anatomy at several dance schools, and was the Anatomy and Physiology module consultant for The Royal Ballet School Teacher Training Course. She regularly contributes to dance publications, and is a recommended practitioner with Dance UK.


Psych-Kô
Performance-related problems of nerves, 'blocks', and insecurity are directly addressed using Psych-Kô techniques. This can benefit performers of all types, whether dancers, singers, musicians or actors.
