Don't let pain be the only reason you get treatment.

When do you you usually get soft tissue treatment/massage? Is it when those pesky headaches come one or when that pain in the knee rears its ugly head? Or do you like to prevent pain coming on in the first place by having regular maintenance treatment? It is in our nature to leave things until they are bad before we will seek help. Just like with our cars most people will take their cars to the mechanic only when the car is playing up rather that booking it in for regular scheduled maintenance. Our bodies are much more valuable that our cars (some people may disagree) so it is just as important to get our body in for a regular maintenance treatment.

5 easy changes to stand up straight.

Having 3 simple words gives a focus for your goals and can act as an anchor to bring you back to your goals when you might come unstuck (Easter is only a few months away people :) ). My 3 words are: Commit: this means setting goals and sticking to them. Having a training plan and showing up every day. Endure: trying to push through

3 stretches you need to do daily if you sit at a desk all day.

Chest stretching This is an easy one. Find a doorway and you’re off. Bend the elbow to 90 degrees, elbow into the doorway. Turn your body to the opposite side, turning the neck to the same side. Hold for 30 seconds each side. Hip flexor stretching The hip flexors are often overlooked when it comes to stretching. If you sit all day then your hip flexors will become shortened and tight, especially if you sit so your knees are higher than your hips. This will use the hip flexors muscles even more and also shorten them more. Try this one: Stand up and hold onto your chair. Bend one leg and take hold of the ankle so the knee is bent.
