How to lift safely

The Health and Safety Executive have some great advice for manual handling, which covers both lifting and lowering as well as pushing and pulling.

 

 

Acupuncture and Fertility

Consider Acupuncture for fertility and for pre, during and post pregnancy.

Acupuncture can be safely used to help with conceiving by improving sperm count in men and encouraging natural balances of hormones in women.  Often people feel relaxed after Acupuncture and it is thought that the release of tension is often a major factor helping couples to conceive.

Are your Feet Ready for the Spring and Summer?

 

Spring is a busy time for a chiropodist-podiatrist. Many feet which have not seen much of the outdoors for several months are suddenly faced with the prospect of sandals and beach holidays, summer and sun. Sometimes, when we take a good look at our feet after the long, cold winter, we may be a little concerned that may not be looking the part: hard skin, callus, dry and cracked heels, that toenail you’ve meant to be doing something about, the verrucae that still hasn’t gone away, or the mysterious bump on your toe that appeared out of the blue.

Reset Your System For A Good Night’s Sleep

 

 

 

Aaaaaannnnnd Sleep…

I think this is what a lot of people expect to hear when they come in to see a Hypnotherapist, but even though I am a Hypnotherapist, this isn’t about hypnotherapy, this is about sleep.

For some of us sleep can be elusive at times and there are some tried and tested ways of encouraging good sleep, I will share with you.

How does the changing of the seasons affect our bodies?

Spring will be here soon but for the moment the temperatures have dropped and Winter is still with us.  The changing of the seasons is a natural cycle  and is a great example of the concept of Yin and Yang. It can be said that Yang is light, hot, male, movement and all that is opposite to Yin and relatively Yin is dark, cold, female, stillness and so forth, but there is always Yang within Yin and Yin within Yang ready to emerge. 

Why Self Care Really Matters

Caring for yourself can take many forms. For most, it can bring to mind going for a massage or treating yourself to something nice, or simply taking your time over a cup of tea and cake and savouring it.  There is however another element to self-care which is often overlooked, yet which has a powerful effect on our lives and relationships.  This element is the act of caring for our inner world, and is a more soulful aspect of self-care.

Exercise and Growing Older – Why is it Important?

The good news it is never too late to start to exercise…..

There are many reasons why we tend to slow down and become more sedentary with age. It may be due to health problems, weight or pain issues or worries about falling. Or perhaps you think that exercising simply isn’t for you?
