It is now the first anniversary since the Middle Farm physiotherapy clinic received its makeover and it seemed a fitting opportunity to celebrate with my new blog! So welcome and thank you for reading. The aim of the blog is to keep you updated with Rachel Kili Physiotherapy while providing useful and topical advice and suggestions to help you improve and sustain a healthier happier body!
Let’s start with the new studio clinic. My aim was to create a professional inspiring space where I could work with you to help restore and maintain greater health and well-being. Having maximised the internal dimensions with a ruthless amount of de-cluttering (very cathartic and highly recommended!), I am now able to offer Simply Fit! and Simply Move! classes at Middle Farm, in addition to classes run in Shrewsbury. Those of you who spent many a winter evening on cold village hall floors while Simply Moving! will fully appreciate that a clean, forgiving carpet and warmth in abundance is indeed a beautiful thing! The space invigorates me and I hope it has the same effect on you. Let me know!
Speaking of restoring you to greater health, while you are reading this why don’t you multitask and stretch out a little? If you are sitting, make sure you are sitting on your bum bones, raise your ribs up from your hips, shoulders down and arms stretched out to the side and then up above your head. If you are standing, keep your weight over the arches of your feet and then follow suit. Breathe and squeeze your pelvic floor.
This blog is for those of you who think you would like a monthly opportunity to:
- be shown effective exercises you can do while you live, work or play
- help to understand, prevent and or manage typical aches and pains
- prevent the potentially damaging effects seasonal changes can have on your body. For example by winter inactivity, a busy but sedentary lifestyle, starting back and keeping up with the garden or perhaps keeping your body fit for walking, cycling or running.
I thought I would use my much loved, (by some – thank you) stick men to give you a visual cue.
So when you next rise out of a chair or squat down to reach something, remember shoulders in front of your knees, bottom sticking out, push through your feet and stand up.
In addition to my monthly blog, I will be updating my website in the near future. My blog will become part of this along with nuggets of useful information for you.
Thank you for reading. I really would love to hear what you think of my new studio clinic and what you would like included in future blogs. Next month we’ll be focusing on hips.
Remember: you are never too old and it is never too late.
I look forward to hearing from you either by email or through the contact form on my website. Alternatively give me a call. It’s always good to talk!
