Background to the Centre and The Trident Concept

The Highland Chronic Pain and Whiplash Centre was founded by myself, Alison Salter in collaboration with my SAT Osteopath, Clifford Conway as a response to my personal journey to recovery from a life of chronic pain, tension and difficulty due to traumas sustained at birth and as a young child.

My own journey to recovery through the osteopathic treatment of SAT, Mindfulness Meditation and Pilates, inspired me to spread the word of this collaborative approach to treatment and the possibilities of change which it offers, whilst also educating people as to the root causes of chronic pain.

The collaborative approach of SAT-Mindfulness-Pilates/Somatics is embodied in The Trident Concept© which is central to the ethos and treatment approach of this Centre.
