Tags: Runners, running, Roko, Running Injuries

As a runner, you know the familiar sting of post-workout fatigue, tight muscles and exercise-induced injury. These are common issues that all runners face, all of which can be alleviated with the help of a professional sports massage.

There’s a popular misconception that sports massage is only for the top-tier athletes of the sporting world, and that amateur exercisers can’t benefit from professional massage services. Although originally designed for sportspeople, sports massage has been found to have great benefits for individuals of all skill level and can alleviate a wide variety of tensions, injuries and postural issues!

Reflexology for Infertility

Categories: Reflexology
Tags: Infertility

When many people picture their ideal life, that life includes a loving partner and children of their own. Sadly, some couples have trouble conceiving when the time is right. It can be an issue with either member of the couple or both, and it is emotionally wrenching.

The turmoil brought on by infertility can create a vicious circle. The mind-body connection is always an important factor in health but here, it is crucial. The stress and sadness brought on by infertility - and conventional treatments - can get in the way of conception. Reflexology may be the catalyst you need to put your fertility struggles behind you and finally get pregnant. It has worked for many other couples.

During my biomechanics training, I used Hayley as a guinea pig and I screened her on numerous occasions using the biomechanics testing techniques. One thing that became obvious was that she pronated (her foot falls in slightly) on her right foot whereas her left foot was neutral.
