πŸ‘ŸThis is a really useful infograph if you're suffering with pain in your feet.

I find that I have to re-lace most of my shoes / trainers with a gap in the centre because I have high arches. The difference is incredible!! Give it a try if you find your lace ups hurt your feet πŸ‘£

We're very often told that poor posture leads to back pain, but there is actually no evidence to back this up. Back pain is more likely to flare up if we are experiencing the following;

πŸ‘‰Stress
πŸ‘‰Poor sleep
πŸ‘‰Fatigue
πŸ‘‰Low mood
πŸ‘‰Less active

So how can you support yourself?

βœ…οΈ move more
βœ…οΈ get good quality and regular sleep
βœ…οΈ take part in regular exercise
βœ…οΈ improve your mobility
βœ…οΈ relax your back muscles
βœ…οΈ do those things that improve your physical and mental wellbeing

Please book an appointment if I can help you with your back pain! Massage is a great tool alongside the ideas mentioned above.

Pain and Injury Management

We need to approach your pain, injury or aching in a smart fashion.

The mind and the body are linked to our pain experience, so we must use effective strategies involving advice, guidance, information, movement and exercise to help you escape the pain loop, and build your strength and resilience to self manage your symptoms.

Whether you have pain, injury, tension, aching, stress or anxiety we can help you!

Please get in touch for an appointment. Always happy to chat before you book in.

Unfortunately I am taking another break from work. My little man needs me to be at home right now and he is my priority. I will be back as soon as I can. I am missing my work and my clients terribly but as C.S. Lewis says...they are the most important work.

Please do shout if you need any advice or referral to another soft tissue therapist.

Massage Therapy is a huge and much loved part of our role, but as Soft Tissue Therapists we are so much more than massage.

I spent the last two days in seminars at the Therapy Expo in Birmingham.

I often get asked how 'the massage business' is going. I hope this small list highlighting some of seminar topics I attended might make my 'Soft Tissue Therapy' business a little more transparent.

πŸ‘‰ Scars - management, massage and cupping
πŸ‘‰ Massage Therapy and cancer
πŸ‘‰ Tendinopathy management
πŸ‘‰ Why posture does matter
πŸ‘‰ Power and strength training in rehab
πŸ‘‰ Sleep and circadian rhythms in rehab
πŸ‘‰ Rehab for the OA knee
πŸ‘‰ Elevating the client experience
πŸ‘‰ Taping techniques for injury and pain
πŸ‘‰ Cupping therapy with Rockpods and RockBlades Treatment
πŸ‘‰ Exercise not surgery for knee meniscal injury

It was an amazing two days and I have some fantastic new modalities coming into the clinic shortly as a result.

The only negative is that I failed to get enough free pens 🀣

Photo is Daniel Lawrence (Physiotherapist & Rocktape UK) demonstrating techniques for meniscal injury.

10/10/2023

I'm really pleased to announce that I am back at work in Brampton, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

I am happy to help with pain & injury, wellbeing & self care.

I work with massage and movement to help you get back to being you - always evidence based and always with you at the centre of the treatment sessions.

Please get in touch to book or to ask any questions.

Best Wishes

I spent the weekend making sure my knowledge and understanding of shoulder pain and rehab is current and relevant.

A fantastic course from Anna Maria - course organised by Nicki Mansfield Massage and Movement βœ”οΈ

05/10/2023

Rehab doesn't have to involve kettle bells or dumbells πŸ‹β€β™€οΈ

🚫 If sets and reps aren't your thing, then you are unlikely to want to incorporate them into your rehab routine. And that's okay! No need to feel guilty.

πŸ• I'm currently walking the hound and watching an older gentleman (rubbish at guessing ages but i would say Grandad age) in the basketball court shooting hoops. He takes a 2 min break and then proceeds to kick a football against the wall. Another 2 min break and he's back to shooting hoops. What a legend!!

I really hope that this guy is part of a team and he's out doing his practice. Or that he is simply out having some fun doing something that he loves.

But he could also be doing a much loved hobby whilst simultaneously strengthening those muscles. Maybe he's doing his rehab- in HIS OWN WAY.

You are far more likely to succeed with your rehab if you are doing something that you find fun and enjoyable.

The older we get, the less we move and PLAY. But we are born to move. We are not designed to sit ALL DAY LONG. Give this some thought. Go for a walk. Grab a golf club. Jump in a river. Grab a hula hoop. Shoot some hoops. Whatever floats your boat!

And give me a shout if you would like some support βœ”οΈ

🌳Nature is our Natural Health Service - find a reason to get outside and enjoy the peace and down time it provides.

I need so much of this at the moment that I may have to start living outdoors 😁

To my much appreciated clients.... I am currently out of action and so won't be treating anyone for a short period - hopefully.

Aiming to be back at the end of September.

Schools out for summer β˜€οΈβ›±οΈ

I took my little dude to Hinchingbrook Country Park yesterday for some much needed outdoor time 🌳. I absolutely love this place - it brings peace and calm. (The playparks bring hell on earth 🀣)

Just a note to say I am now either fully booked with my regulars or spending time with my family (or taking a much needed break) and so I'm afraid I won't be taking any more bookings until September. Wishing you all a restful & peaceful summer β˜€οΈ ❀

Are you sore? In pain? Tense? Restricted?

Does it hurt to sit at your desk for hours at a time? It is uncomfortable lounging on the sofa to watch a movie? Are you stiff and uncomfortable playing with the kids? Does a good tab at the weekend or a round of Golf leave you tender and sore? Maybe you just need ironing out or some relaxing me time.

If so, please consider a soft tissue treatment with me. I would love to help you ease those aches and pains and help you become a little stronger so that you can enjoy doing the things you love.

Please give me a call or send me a message for a chat or to book in.

The video shows some of the more gentle techniques used for Indian Head Massage. We can use alot more pressure depending on your preference.

C came in yesterday because she has terrible pain in her left shoulder blade which is affecting her work and also her down time.

She is struggling to drive the car, pick up the kids, do the shopping and attend her fitness classes because she constantly feels this intense aching or burning feeling. She describes it as needing to dig her fingers or a ball into the muscle for relief.

A quick assessment was completed to see if there were any limitations to her range of movement at the shoulder and head and to see if we could pinpoint the exact area that is bothering her.

The treatment involved a deep tissue massage, at a pressure that suited her, to help ease the tension and pain in the shoulder area. The massage covered the entire back and neck because....well...why the hell not!!! We had the time and she needed the support.

She was sent home with 2 exercises which will take her no more than 5 minutes a day to complete to get the shoulders moving.

If I can help you with pain, tension, aching or injury please give me a shout. I can also help with stress and anxiety by providing a soothing and calming massage!

Please do message or call if you would like to chat about your issue before we book you in.

I look forward to hearing from you.

A Change in Direction

A little about me...

My career in Performance Analysis was temporarily stalled when I relocated to Gutersloh, Germany for a few years after getting married. Children soon followed, two to be precise. The road ahead was not smooth and so my return back to work was significantly delayed. A change of heart, and a desperation not to return to the office, lead me to the start of a new and exciting career in Sports Massage Therapy. The aspiration to switch to soft tissue therapy sparked from a childhood aspiration to β€˜fix people’. More recently, the determination to aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of minor injuries for service personnel, including my husband, has evolved.

So began a new career and a new passion. I trained for the Active IQ Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy in April 2019. I soon realised the Level 3 wasn’t giving me the scope of practice I so craved and subsequently signed up with the Cambridge School of Massage. I started working towards the ISRM BTEC level 5 Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy in January 2020.
