New Challenges for 2022

Thinking of new challenges for 2022? Always had your eye on a bucket list event but not sure how to go about it? I had published in the Evening Standard a mini guide on how to go about achieving those challenges. Let me know if one of them catches your eye and you’d like more…

Kids and Exercise

Kids and Exercise

I was commissioned by Runner’s World to look at the subject of our children, exercise and the risks of over training. Of course, our youngsters should be encouraged and supported with their sports, but we should also be aware of their growing bodies in terms of skeleton and soft tissue, and their potential susceptibility to…

osteoporosis

#worldosteoporosisday 2021

💪 It is estimated that we lose 5-8% of bone density per decade from our 30s which can lead to osteoporosis 💪 Resistance training can not only slow that, it can reverse the process 💪 Running and other aerobic exercise is brilliant as it is a positive load on our bones and has many other…

Covid-safe practices

12th April is ON! :)

Happy to be released from what I thought might be (very) early retirement back in the Winter! The online booking system is open from 12th April. Any teachers that can’t find a slot they need this week (Easter Holidays) please contact me and I will try and fit you in. Really looking forward to seeing…

Lockdown #3

However I am still here to help and support you through this time with telephone or online consultations. I can still give bespoke rehabilitation and advice.

Remedial Massage in Chippenham

Treatments Resume :)

Happily I was able to start treating from 13th July. It’s been a very busy 4 or 5 weeks catching up with regulars and meeting and treating new ones. My home clinic is a little pared back from what it was, no soft furnishings and little decorative luxuries for the moment but the same quality…

Plantar Facsciitis

CPD and Not Quite Open!

Unfortunately Soft Tissue Therapy and Sports Massage didn’t quite make the cut in the list of other industries that are allowed to operate from 4th July – Boris clearly hasn’t had a treatment to know that the role plays an important part in healthcare. Our small but united band of Soft Tissue Therapists are lobbying…
