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.

Why DOMS can be good for you

Categories: DOMS
Tags: pain, Sore Muscles

A few days ago, you had a surprisingly easy time doing something new and athletic, pushing your boundaries. Right afterwards, you felt proud and strong. You told everyone you were on the right track. Now your muscles are screaming and you're thinking 'I'm too old for this!' and 'This is NOT worth it.'

Every active person has experienced DOMS, or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. DOMS starts a day or two after a challenging workout, and it affects the muscles that you used differently or more intensely than usual. DOMS can strike anyone, from a fitness novice to a seasoned athlete.

Gait Analysis

Categories: Biomechanics
Tags: running, Gait Analysis, Running Shoes

Recently my wife Hayley and I went to get her some trainers fitted at a local running shop in Nottingham. During the visit, I noticed some huge flaws in how their gait analysis was performed, which I’ll share with you in a moment. First, I’ll give you some background history on Hayley.

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.

Back pain will affect most of us, at some point in our lives. It’s a very common problem, and there are many ways that we can damage or injure our back – whether it’s a sudden wrong move or repeated bad posture.

Below are 3 things for you to do as preventative measures for back pain:

Pain in the backside

Categories: Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage
Tags: hip pain, pain in the bum, glutes, piriformis

One of the most important areas of the body is the hips. It connects the upper half of your body to the lower half, and around the back of your hips you’ll find what are called your gluteal muscles, or glutes for short (your bum muscles!)

The glutes consist of 3 muscles: gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus, and tightness in these muscles can dramatically affect other areas of the body as we compensate for this. Underneath these, there is another muscle called the piriformis, and tightness in this can sometimes cause sciatic symptoms down the leg. Everyday use, combined with lots of sitting down or driving, leads to tension in the glutes/piriformis, so here are 3 things that you can do to prevent tightness in this area.

What is Indian Head Massage?

Categories: Indian Head Massage
Tags: Relaxation, Back Pain, Insomnia, Anxiety, Headaches

Indian head massage originated in India and it is based on the ayurvedic system of healing. It is a wonderfully relaxing, stress-busting, massage treatment, especially good at targeting and reducing the tension we carry around our head, neck, shoulders and upper back. This kind of upper body muscle tension could be the cause of your migraines, tension headaches or stiff neck.

We all love a good massage, but how do you know which one is right for you? Massages vary greatly in strength and technique, using a variety of methods that consist of physical stimulation of your muscles and your skin. So how can you tell the difference between the massages? In this blog I thought I would explain the difference between two of Adjust's most common massages, Sports massage and Deep Tissue massage.
