New loyalty scheme for our massage service

From 12th April our massage treatments are back on the table.

The past 12 months has been very frustrating for me not been able to open for hands on treatments. I am so looking forward to getting back into the clinic full time.

Massage returns to the table

Patients right now are noticing how shattered and tense they’ve been feeling and how much this past twelve months has taken its toll.

This latest lockdown, we have seen persistent niggling injuries that just won’t clear without hands on treatment and also a lot of people who feel generally stiff and out of condition. Everyone has tried hard to stay fit and stretch at home but it doesn’t always get to the heart of the problem.

As a trial run we are launching a loyalty scheme for our sports and relaxation massage treatments which will last 3 mths.

Here is how it will work;

From 12th April – 11th July you will be given a gift card to record your 1st visit.

On your 2nd visit this card will turn into a £10 gift card to go towards your 3rd visit which must be used before 11th July.

We don’t want you to be getting back into the activities you love all stiff and sore. Book in for some massage treatments to get you moving better and iron out the physical and mental effects that stress has had on the body, so you can enjoy, your activities again, with ease.

Competition Time

To celebrate our 15 years in business we would have loved to have had a party to invite all current and past customers. However Covid has got in the way and we want everyone to be safe, so we thought we would give some prizes away.

To enter all you have to do is book in for any treatment between the 12th April and 11th May. If you would like to treat someone to one of our gift cards then you and your receiver will also be entered.

What’s the prize?

One of these lovely lavendar scented wheat bags, measuring 46cm by 14cm frm the Wheatbag Company. These are great to ease sore achy muscles by popping it in the microwave to heat up or pop in the freezer to ease any inflammation.

To book in just call 01723 363332 or fill in one of our contact forms.

Marathon Treatment Package

As well as our new 2018 Health Scheme packages we have designed a SPECIAL package for anyone training for a marathon.

The Package

Total Cost £176 can be paid whole or in 4 monthly payments £44 (saves £6 per treatment)

(The contract runs for 4 months from the date of first payment received. Once expired any outstanding treatments are lost. Any payments not received make the contract null and void any treatments completed will be charged at full price and an invoice issued to be paid immediately)

What is included?

7 x 40 minute treatments to use as you please within a 4 mth period.

Recommended usage 5 treatments (1 every two weeks) training up for the marathon, 1 pre race massage (2-4 days before race day) and 1 post race massage (4-6 days after race day). To be started 12 weeks out from your race day. Or to be started 6 weeks out from race day having 1 massage a week using your 7th as a post race treatment.

Having a sports massage program can not guarantee you stay injury free, high mileage is tough on the body but if one occurs you can use your treatments for the injury instead of sports massage, with any extra sessions required at 15% discount.

Why go for this package?

For most of us, running a marathon is a massive challenge and commitment. So the last thing you want is an injury that could force you to pull out before the big day.

Sports massage can help you through to the finish line. But many runners are unaware of the physical and psychological benefits of sports massage when preparing for a marathon – maybe considering it a luxury. Everybody is different and the effects of heavy mileage is different for each person, understanding how your body responds can help you recovery better and prevent injury. Sports massage can help by making you more in tune with how your body feels, your muscle may feel fine until some one works through them. Our bodies are pretty good at telling us when something is sore we just have to work out why. Along with the sports massage we can discuss how you are training and make changes if needed.

Back pain breaking the myths

Back pain is the most common area of pain I treat in the clinic. Everybody at some point will have an episode of back pain and for those unlucky few ongoing recurrent problems.

The approach to back pain has changed a lot and challenges many widespread beliefs about the condition. Here is what I have found out throughout my 10yrs of experience.

1. Back pain is common and normal.

Most back pain is due to strains and sprains and usually resolves within 6 weeks. Only a very small percentage go on to develop long standing disabling problems and many of these may improve with the right help.

2. Scans are rarely needed. You would think that a picture of the spine would explain why you are in pain but it is not that simple. The scans will often show up things that are poorly linked with pain. Many people who have no pain are shown to have bulging discs, degenerated discs, arthritic changes etc. If you are told you have these problems it can lead to further distress and avoidance of activity.

3. Back pain is not caused by something being out of place. Many people may feel better after manipulations/mobilisations but this is mainly down to short term reduction of pain, muscle tone/tension and fear. As therapists we use these techniques to help get you moving better not to realign you.

4. Bed rest is not helpful. This can create stiffness, muscle de-conditioning and fear. Stiffness itself is painful and treatment and exercises will be painful to get movement back again.

5. Increased back pain does not mean more damage.

6. Surgery is rarely needed. Many people who have back surgery still have pain after because they have not taken a multi factoral approach to getting better. No one treatment will work on its own.

7. There is no perfect sitting posture. It is about moving and altering posture instead of maintaining posture that is important. The body will never like being stuck in one position for any length of time.

8. Lifting and bending are safe. Yes it may cause a strain in the back but should never be avoided as it is good strength work for the back and body. And yes there are bad techniques that can lead to injury, just remember you have a pair of legs to help you. Don’t lift silly amounts of weight, be smart. The length of the activity also has an influence break it up into smaller manageable amounts.

9. Avoiding painful activities is not the way forward. Fear of pain can heighten your senses of back pain and increase stress on the back due to an altered movement pattern.

10. Poor sleep, stress, low mood and worry all influence the back.

11. Exercise is good and safe and persistent back pain CAN get better with it.

Long standing back pain has to have a whole body and psychological approach. Manual therapy can help but exercise is very important as well. So is general health, looking after you weight, healthy diet, good sleeping pattern and knowing how to cope with stress. Everyone is different so what works for one person will not work for the next.

 

 

 

New Develeopments

Pro-Am is currently having some building work done which is very exciting. It does mean some treatments will move to the main house, whilst it is messy and noisy. Hopefully the builders will be out by the end of next week, which means you may end up with a paint brush in your hand for rehabilitation exercises in February lol!

THURSDAY 21st PHONE LINE WILL BE DOWN please call 07841426768 to book in

Here are some before pictures for those of you interested in renovations. I have to admit they always say it is stressful but you are never quite prepared for all the decisions that need to made so quickly.

 

Many of you know I have been planing this for a while, when I bought the main house with my mum 7 years ago the coach house was going to be mine to convert into my own space. The plan is to have a dormer put upstairs which will get converted into an bedroom en-suite and the gym will be turning into a lounge area with a lovely log burner (which may take another year to save up some pennies). The clinic will remain where it is. All this is to be done by Andy Whitelaw Joinery.
