The Importance of Regular Massage & ‘Energetic Maintenance’

If prevention was a priority to each of us, pain and suffering (both physical and emotional) might be far less common. Instead of waiting until the body starts to ache and stiffen, and the mind spirals into rumination and darkness, we’d be regularly taking part in something that maintains a vibrant, healthful physical state, and balanced emotions. With a healthy body and mind, life becomes more fluid, easier to navigate, and we’re able to have more joyful life experiences.

Health Anxiety - I am convinced I have MS

 

Health Anxiety is the fear of having some incurable disease. And it’s not uncommon.

Of the patients I’ve seen with health anxiety, this fear has started with a close family member being ill, after a period of stress, or a big shock.

This is Lisa’s story.  I have sought full permission to share her story her name and some details have been changed to protect her identity.

I meet Lisa for the first time. She is warm, friendly and funny and has me chortling away several times during the…

My son vomits every morning...

I see lots of children in my practice. Meet Carl. He is 4 years old.  A friendly, curious boy who wants to talk to me. He is of a slight build and I notice his long eyelashes.

Stress & Your Health

What is stress?

Most people think of stress as emotional, however, the body views anything that is putting it under strain in a much broader way. For example, eating badly is a stressor to the gut, exposure to toxins is a stressor to the liver and walking around in pain is a stressor to your physical body. Stress can be emotional, physical and /or physiological.

Calling all runners

Ever wondered why you run the way you do? Why you cant go longer? Faster? Further? 

Its no surprise that we are all different. No two runners are the same. Ive got a friend that runs with ease and completes distances with little or no training. Whilst like most of us I have to put in hard work and many hours of training and still its hard. So why do some people find it easier than others. A lot of it can be in our genes, what we did when we were younger and our lifestyle now. At The Perrymount…
