new year and You

Written by Glenn Comber

Another amazing Christmas done and the list writing for new years resolutions has started and i'm looking forward to breaking them.. You know..! The list:,! lose another 3 kg.. on-top of the 5 kg from last year and the gym membership I am going to to do after i accept some free week trial that I just don't have time for (because the Block is on) Now don;t forget the latest healthy eating plan that some over paid MacDonald eating "reality TV " chef has told you is his/her way to the to go for that trimmer waist line....
Me bahh!! i don't subscribe to my body being a temple. I subscribe more to "Life be in it" style. The ,My body is a play ground and my mind is a jungle gym waiting to be entertained ,experience explored . You got one shot and one only. try a little bit of everything and be open to the wonder of diversity, Let your curiosity of the mind ferment the choices of say.. learn something I don't understand or experiencing something from someone elses point of view even if you don't agree with it or make the really tough choice of strawberry orrr chocolate.
Let YOUR whims ,dreams and passions be your new years resolution. Don't let the tv or glossy mag tell you who ,how or what to do or look like. Pick your new years resolution because it's something YOU want or don't want to do. Anyway beautiful people of the world.Love to you all and a very happy new year and to being the best and most beautiful version of you..xox

Gout

Written by Glenn Comber

NOV 16 2016

GOUT

reflexology-foot-painGout is a form of arthritis, in which acidic crystals have accumulated within a joint capsule. It is often found in the hallux. “True gout” – hyperuricemia – involves deposits of uric acid (a by-product of protein metabolism); “pseudo gout” involves calcium pyrophosphate crystals (from the breakdown of purine proteins found in organ meats, sardines, anchovies).

Pain can be excruciating and is accompanied by redness, swelling, heat and the inability to bear weight and walk. Gout can lead to the development of kidney stones, so it is important that the person suffering with gout not ignore the symptoms.

  • Sports Massage -What is it and when should I have it? Sports massage incorporates a number of techniques passive and active assisted and non assisted stretches combined with large muscle movement massage. Techniques vary depending on what the client is trying to achieve.
  • Pre or Post event massage is used for athletes to maximise their potential.For example a runner may be trying to improve their times and shorten their training soreness.
  •  Pre event massage is one where the client has a sporting event or heavy training session coming up. Depending upon how close to the event the massage is will depend on thetechniques used could include : medium - deep tissue massage. assisted stretches and perhaps PNF stretches.
  • Post event massage. Depending how soon after the event the massage takes place will depend once again on the depth , force, duration and expectation outcome. After an event the massage will generally be light to help the body rid harmful (Lactic acid) or excessive fluid (Lymph) from the muscle to reduce soreness and maintain flexability and good muscle tone. Streching is also performed both asisisted and non assisted.Large muscle movement massage is used as well .This is called jostling and is a lot like tossing around pizza dough.

In conclusion.Pre and Post Massage should be used when there is a specific goal in mind.

Corporate massage is where we bring (in most cases) a seated massage chair or table to an event ,Market or business office. Generally massaging each person either at their desk or in a small private room for between 10 minutes to 1/2 hour.

Deep Tissue Massage and why and when to have it?

Written by Glenn Comber

Today I will talk about Deep Tissue Massage and why and when to have it.

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
This type of massage is best used when you are near the end of the week as the deep tissue massage can leave you rather sore as we get "as the name suggests" DEEP. Slow deliberate pressure is applied to the affected area in a number of methods including forearms, elbows and knuckles. Stretches are also applied while doing some of these Techniques. Sometimes these are called "Active stretches".

Frequently Asked Questions

Written by Glenn Comber

What should I expect on the first appointment?

While I set up the massage table in your designated area, I will ask you to complete a standard consultation form, which briefly outlines your history and what you’d like to achieve with massage.  We will then
have a chat about what you require and which techniques will be most effective. If you require remedial treatment, then I will ask you more in-depth questions and do some testing before starting the table work.  I will then leave the room for you to dress to your level of comfort and cover yourself with the provided towels.
