It's as easy as breathing

It’s might seem odd to think that you could improve something that you’ve been doing since the day you were born. Yet many of us could improve the way we breathe. Most people rarely notice the way that they breath. After all, it’s something which just goes on in the background...

The cause of your pain might be elsewhere

Most clients who come along for treatment of muscle pain or discomfort assume that the therapy they need for their muscle problems will be carried out just on the exact area of their problem. That is, those with shoulder problems expect me to work just on their shoulders, those with hip...

This one trick can reduce muscle stiffness and discomfort

Following on from Ann’s blog Life Lessons from a Terrier, I have been thinking about other lessons we can learn from our pets. In particular, I’ve noticed how our pets are often much better at muscle care than we are. Have you noticed how most mammals – whether pets or wild...

Your parents were right about this

Do you tend to blamed age for regular aches and pains in your muscles and around your joints?  A lot of people seem willing to accept that they’ll find it hard to open jars, or to get up from sitting without using their hands to support you as they get older....

Could you be missing this common cause of backache?

I’ve often written about the problems which can result from over-using muscles, including strains, pulls and stiffness. However, sometimes a client’s problems can be caused by under-use and weakness of muscles. So often in these cases, as with many muscle problems, it isn’t always obvious where the problem is coming from...

Are you overdue for a service?

A review of people’s spending habits in the UK reveals a lot about priorities, as does simply asking people what they think is their most valuable asset. Both indicate that people value their houses and their cars enough to invest in their maintenance and repair. Cars are regularly serviced and MOT’d...

Slip slidin' away

I was watching a live stage performance on Saturday when an actor rushed onto the stage as part of the performance. Though his speed was deliberate, the slippery stage wasn't. The previous scene had included some drinking, and some liquid had accidentally splashed onto the stage. As he reached mid-stage the...

Our muscles reflect our lives

Have you ever thought about how wonderful your muscles are? You really should give them a second thought! They move us around and enable us to do all of the everyday things that make up our lives. If I were to write down here everything that muscles do for us it...

Massage and mindfulness

Have you, like me, noticed that there is a lot of talk about mindulness nowadays? Mindfulness is about learning to direct our attention to our experience as it unfolds here and now, rather than living in our heads. Too many of us spend our time being depressed about the past or...

Oh that - I've had that problem for ages...

I was reminded recently that humans have a great capacity for noticing new things, yet we readily lose sight of things that haven't altered for a long time. It's part of our survival mechanism. Very similar things happen with many of my clients too. They book in with known problem areas,...
