Health is Wealth

“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”

This is in the words of the famous Yoga guru B.K.S, Iyengar, but it’s very true. Health should be looked upon globally and holistically.

Here are five things that could help with the way you look upon and can improve your health.

How can we help?

Treatment can prevent muscles from becoming fibrotic which can develop from stress (mental as well as physical stress), repetition or overuse of a muscle.

You may hear people say they have “knots” in their back which results in that achy, tired feeling, osteopaths call these trigger points. Deep soft tissue massage can help relax these tensions which makes the muscles work at optimal health. It also increases blood circulation in the area that enables the nutrients to filter effectively through the muscles.

Joints may also get restricted, whether this is segmentally in the spine or in joints in the knee and ankle etc. Articulating and manipulating these joints allows for greater range of movement and more flexibility.

Flexibility is one of the factors for prevention of injury alongside the factors mentioned above.

All in all, maintenance treatment may help prevent injury and pain in the future. But also, treatment can make you feel more relaxed. Seems simple right? Don’t suffer alone, let people around you help.

Why not give yourself a little MOT and book in with us today!
