'Bloggers Back', otherwise known as 'Text Neck' are keeping physiotherapists in business but the full scale of the problem is not yet known. The terms are used to describe neck or back pain sustained from looking down at your phone, iPad or laptop screen too frequently or for too long. These repetitive activities done every day can wear down the spine, however often people don't develop serious problems until much further down the line.Read More
We live in a world where time is money. So why waste time traveling to an appointment when you don't have to? I find I actually get better results from the clients I coach online vs those I coach face to face. Sometimes people think the online coaching lacks the personal touch but I couldn't disagree more. Normally when starting with a new client, the first session may be a video call rather than voice call. This is so that the client has an opportunity to see me in person rather than just hear a voice. With subsequent sessions I tend to prefer to keep them to voice calls only, but it is really up to the client and their wishes, I'm happy with either.Read More
Cork yoga mat?
This lovely handmade cork yoga mat is my latest sustainable find in Amsterdam. I had never seen a yoga mat made from cork before and was surprised by how flexible the material was. Also, it is100% natural and the cork is collected and used in an environmentally friendly way, reducing the need for plastic or artificially made mats and other items. The mat is so soft to lie on and is non-slip, without that feeling of being 'stuck' that some yoga mats have. You can also spray your mat with water for some extra grip during your workout.Read More
