My experience over six months as a massage therapist has given me the opportunity to hear explicitly from my clients their main phsysical concerns. Behind these words I identify two things. Firstly, the value that they give to their health and, secondly, the struggles that sometimes they have to introduce life changes prolonged. This post […]

Avoiding winter weight gain

Winter can easily wreak havoc on our usual health routine. Cold mornings are enough to keep even the most ardent exerciser in bed hitting the snooze button. We are far more likely to overindulge and forget the importance of a wholefood diet when we’re not faced with being in a bikini! Seasonal weight gain is […]

WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR YOU TO BE A GOOD LISTENER?

During Easter break, I had a giggle to an image of 2 chocolate bunnies that a friend posted on Facebook. One had a bite chunk off its butt and it yelled at the other bunny, “My butt hurts!!!” The other chocolate bunny had a bite chunk off its ears and replied, “What??” Often we complain […]

Is stress keeping you from a Baywatch worthy body?

Casting call! Beach ready bodies that look great in the colour red! A remake of Baywatch is currently underway and they’re shooting as I write this. Most of us who grew up in the 1990’s have flicked over at some stage in our lives and been sucked into the tacky world of saving humanity one […]

HOW TO DECREASE CONFLICTS AT WORK AND AT HOME

Is your partner making you fat?

We’ve all seen the process unfold at one time or another and heard the jokes that people throw around either at their own expense or someone else’s. You may have even felt the brunt of it yourself and questioned ‘is this just the process of getting older?’ Or ‘is this what is meant to happen?’ […]

Frozen Shoulder
