Exercising is one of the most important things we can do to promote ongoing physical and mental health. Some of us exercise regularly, some erratically, some go for the burn’ while others prefer gentle stretching.
However you do it, exercising not only helps weight loss, controls food cravings, and reduces the risk of heart and circulatory disease, but it also prompts the body to release feel-good chemicals called endorphins, having a positive effect on life.
Unfortunately as more and more health-conscious people increase their levels of regular activity, so are sports-related injuries becoming increasingly more common. Around 11 per cent of all injury-related visits to emergency departments are sports-related. Never forget that injury can occur to anyone of any age and of any level of fitness.
Sports Shiatsu allows the recipient to receive treatment after injuries and to strengthen the tendons, ligaments and joints after any kind of upset to the body. The body retains shock in the tissues so receiving bodywork such as Shiatsu really assists with not only aiding the body to heal faster but allows you to get on with your training like you have not been away. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a quick fix, but something that should be seen as an ongoing process to build not only your immune system but also your nervous system which takes a hit’ when you injure the body in any way.
You can find me working in Chelsea Natural Health Clinic on Tuesdays between 2.30 – 7.30pm and would like you to get in touch as soon as you have any injury. This way, we can, together ensure that you do not retain the injury as long as some may if not getting immediate assistance.
Do not necessarily wait for an injury – got tight hamstrings or quadriceps from running or cycling? Come for a course of Shiatsu’s to lengthen and loosen your muscles.
I look forward to treating you all and will have further handouts for you to ensure you keep your body healthy and your mind active.
