Skiing is a sport that is growing in popularity year upon year so we thought this would be a fitting time to address the benefits of using Sports Massage as a way to prevent injury and improve your skiing performance. For many of us, skiing is purely recreational. Whether you are up with the first ski lift and don’t return until dusk or you prefer to be a bit more sedate on the slopes (making time for lunch, coffee and apres-ski beers), your body can still feel as if it has taken a beating.
2011 was a challenging year for me, I was 35 years old and had just been diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition. I lost my driver’s licence and a load of confidence in everything. I was a rock climber that enjoyed pushing my mind and body to the limits. However on the 14th June 2011 after that diagnosis it all changed, I thought my adventures were over when I was told I could go blind in 5 short years but a friend told me to get my act together!
If you haven’t discovered already, it won’t take you long to figure out that sitting all day is bad for your body. The majority of clients that pass through our clinics will commonly have a job that involves sitting at as desk for most of the day. A large amount of the population find themselves hunched over their keyboard for up to eight hours a day, 5 days a week. That’s a lot of hunching hours which are having a negative impact on your posture.
Realign your spine, improve your posture and reduce your hunching shoulders
One thing is certain…if Whiplash is left untreated it will come back to haunt you! Ever suffered with Whiplash?

Our team of Therapists from our clinics in Lancashire were invited to Chorley Golf Club to set up a mobile clinic at their Chairman’s Prize Competition. Close to 200 players signed up for this mid-week event and braved some testing conditions out on the course to complete it before the rain came in.
Why wait until your body is in desperate need of attention to get treatment? Why let an injury occur when you could easily have prevented it from happening in the first place. We meet many clients who visit our clinics with niggles, pain and injuries that, had they been addressed sooner, could have been prevented. Are you one of them??

For years you have been hurting all over and constantly feeling exhausted but no one seems able to help. Finally you have been diagnosed with something called Fibromyalgia but the bad news is that everyone you speak to says that there is very little they can do about it. Without a magic cure, what can you do?
Training to get in shape for your next holiday? Got an event coming up with which you want to challenge yourself? There is always a lot of sport on TV to get people excited and motivated to go out and get fit. However, one thing that sometimes gets neglected is rest. Rest is something that everyone knows about but not everyone puts it into practice at the appropriate times. Without the correct amount of rest, over-training can occur and this can effect both performance and health.
