Clients are turning to Craniosacral therapy for the missing piece of the jigsaw in their recovery from Long Covid. Clients with Long Covid often report chronic fatigue, foggy head, poor sleep and numerous other collection of symptoms.
We have heard a lot over the past 20 months about the immune system and how is handles Covid. But what is your immune system, where is it in your body and what does it do? And what does it have to do with Craniosacral Therapy?
I am seeing lots of clients with tight necks and shoulders mainly due to posture at their desk and the stress of work. This blog shares my top tips on how to look after your back.
The physical, emotional and chemical stresses of everyday life can put a strain on our your back. It is more important than ever to look after your back with difficulties getting appointments with the doctor and long NHS waiting lists. Since the start of the pandemic many people have been working from home and have continued to do so. Try some of the following to improve posture and minimise your risk of back pain.
Keep moving: Your fascial, the body's connective tissue, needs to keep mobile to prevent is sticking together. Take frequent breaks if you are sitting for long periods. Get up, walk around and have a stretch once you have moved for a few minutes once your muscles have warmed up.
Check how you are sitting at your desk: Ensure your hips knees and feet are at 90 degree. You may need to put a box or step under your feet to achieve this. Ensure you are looking directly at your screen and your shoulders are relaxed when using a keyboard.
Stay hydrated: The fascia needs fluid, so remember to drink water. This is often more difficult on cooler days as you may not feel thirty or want to drink cold water. Maybe try herbal tea or warm water with lemon and ginger.
Check out your footwear: The shoes you were can make a big difference to the way you walk and this can put a strain upon your back. Well fitting trainers are the best, and avoid going out for walks in welly boots as they will have an impact on your walking gait and posture.
Craniosacral Therapy can also reduce back pain. I have helped more clients than ever especially with more people working from home. If you have any questions or would like to find out how Craniosacral Therapy might help you then please get in touch.
It is more important than ever to have a healthy immune system with an increase in cases of Covid 19 in the UK.

Maintain a balance diet containing a variety of foods including fruit, vegetables pulses and fibre.
Take a Vitamin D supplement
Take moderate exercise

Following the Government announcement I'm afraid I am unable to work until the beginning on December.
For me September is a time for new beginnings, I have often started a new job or training at this time of year, and of course this is the time of year that the children start school, college and university. The weather seems to change dramatically and today the 1st September there is a real feel of autumn in the air after the long (mainly) sunny days we have experienced this year.
It has been a strange year so far and it feels like we are now returning to a 'new normal'.
So what are your plans for this new season?
Do you have plans to take up a new hobby, exercise more, eat well or take control of any health concerns.
Craniosacral Therapy is a powerful but gentle treatment that addresses many health issues. A treatment can also be an opportunity to take some time out for yourself, and allow your body to relax and reset.

It has been great to welcome clients back into my treatment room for craniosacral therapy.
Covid-19 risk assessments have been carried out and all measures have been put into place to ensure the safety of clients and myself. If you would like more information please get in touch and I hope to see you soon.
I hope that you are keeping well during these difficult times. Until I am given the go ahead by the Government to start welcoming clients back into my treatment room I have been supporting clients over the phone offering them so self help techniques. If you are struggling or just need some advise, feel free to give me a call and I can see how I can help.
I am listening to Government advise and the recommendations from my governing bodies as to how I will be working when lockdown restrictions are lifted. I know that for the protection of myself and my clients I will be wearing a mask and will be asking my clients to do the same. I am fortunate enough to have a self contained room with doors that open onto the beautiful garden and in fine weather my clients enjoy being treated with the doors open, listening to the pond and the birds. If you are in need of a treatment let me know and I will add you to my priority waiting list.
