Cycling: How to Avoid Injuries from Pedalling

Cycling: How to Avoid Injuries from Pedalling
07 November 2013
1

Over the past few weeks I’ve seen several people who’ve managed to give themselves injuries through cycling. They’ve injured themselves not by falling off or by having an accident, but simply from pedalling. They’ve also been very different in terms of experience and ability, from someone who just uses her bike to get around town, to a professional cyclist – so this type of injury can happen to anyone. Therefore I thought I’d outline some of the ways that you can cause injuries while cycling, and how to avoid them. I love cycling. It’s undoubtedly the best...

Musuclar-Skeletal Problems

Musuclar-Skeletal Problems

┬áMassage and Acupuncture in Hackney One of the most satisfying things to do as an acupuncturist and massage therapist is to treat muscular-skeletal problems: aches, pains, tightness, sports injuries and other problems that most of us experience from time to time. These problems tend to react very quickly to treatment, and significant changes can be felt after just one session. It’s an area that I found myself treating (and enjoying treating) more and more after I qualified as an acupuncturist, something further enhanced by subsequent training in massage therapy. I’d definitely recommend...

27 June 2013

‘Tui Na’ is a style of massage that is relatively new to the UK, despite having roots in ancient China. Archaeological findings have suggested that massage in Asia dates back to around 3000BC[1]. Originally it was known as ‘An Mo’ (literally ‘pressing and rubbing’), but after the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368-1644) it was called ‘Tui Na’ (‘pushing and grasping’). Unsurprisingly, given it’s long history, it’s techniques and theories have fed the roots of many of the Eastern massage styles, such as Shiatsu and Thai Massage, as well as...

“Waiting to treat until after the illness has already developed is like digging a well when one is thirsty, or casting a knife after the battle has already been engaged.” Chinese Proverb Stress is a mental or emotional reaction resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances. The exact mechanisms are not completely understood, but many parts of the brain, nervous system and endocrine system are involved, increasing the amounts of some hormones (such as corticosteroids) and reducing others (like serotonin). It’s something that most have experienced from time to time, and to some...

Using Essentail Oils In A Bath

Using Essentail Oils In A Bath
15 November 2011

A nice way to use essential oils is in a bath. As well as being very relaxing, they can be useful for treating systemic problems, such as high blood pressure or hot flushes. Generally, people just add the oils directly into a running bath, but following the simple procedure below can really increase the effects. Firstly, the oils should be mixed with an emulsifying agent, such as milk, lecithin or egg white. This enables the oils to mix more easily with the water. Add around 15-20 drops of the oil or oil blend to a tablespoon of emulsifying agent. Run a nice hot bath, as warm as is comfortable,...
