Much like an effective Personal Trainer or Health Coach. We need to really examine your life, your habits, your needs and wants. We can’t stick you on a diet of rabbit food, when your lifestyle revolves around good food and great friends.
A good diet is both flexible, sustainable and purposeful. Allowing you to enjoy the good days that are numbered on this earth.
A good diet works from the inside out, cleaning your skin, strengthening your hair, your nails, whitening your eyes, and leaving full of energy and clarity.
There are hundreds of diets, and not any one diet will suit everyone. What works for you depends on your strengths and weaknesses.
I for example have a sweet tooth, but if the packet is in opened, I can resist (most of the time:)
I know I love a drink on the weekends, but can say no if I’m kept busy.
So we need to learn the most about you, this can be a great exercise for you to study yourself.
What are you willing to forgo for the goal, and what can’t you live with out.
What are your triggers and what’s your hormonal needs.
We all know we need to eat better and move more, but in a world with other priorities we need to find the best choices for you and your body to get you where you can be safe and happy for your healthiest you yet.
Many people think by hiring a PT they will automatically lose weight and get fit. To a degree you will see some initial results, quickly followed by a plateau and (even worse) a possible rebound.
Personal training like anything is a relationship built on trust, transparency and unity.
There is no point in your trainer telling you to exercise 6 times a week & live off chicken and broccoli, if you hate chicken and are lucky to fit in 1-2 training session.
A good PT will constantly work with you and your needs, keeping you motivated and focused on the big picture. A great Personal Trainer will have you working towards your goals in every session, giving you what you want, whilst subtly giving you what you need.
Challenge your beliefs and actions to help your mind find better habits, correcting your posture and preventing injury when you can’t see its necessary. Helping you find confidence and purpose when your goals are superficially driven.
A great health coach takes your training to the next level, supporting your journey to being the best human you can be, even when your initial reason was something smaller. We see your potential, we understand the suppressed issues holding you back, it’s not our place to make judgment. Like a child finding its path, we love, support and nurture your transition to blossom.
Remedial massage is unfortunately an over used term in today’s world, to describe an oil rub of your body.
But really – it should be a treatment to rival any Chiropractic or Physiotherapist treatment you could find.
The body is a complex organism dynamically responding and evolving to external and internal stimulus. To the untrained eye, the body can be a complex system of foreign names and movements – but really it’s just made up of thousands and thousands of pretty simple functions, all happening together like a well managed business or community.
In an over worked, over stressed, under active society who is chronically tight, toxic, and stagnant, who is out of touch with its inner voice and void of quality nutrition and repair, it’s not hard to see how the body can become imbalanced, hypersensitive, and achey.
A good remedial massage should be working on a multifaceted approach to increasing blood flow, decreasing inflammation, whilst searching for muscle imbalances, adhesions, and blockages.
Bones don’t go out of place by themselves. They are pushed out by a blunt force trauma eg car accident, fall or baseball bat. OR they are pulled out by muscle spasms and chronically tight imbalances.
Fortunately for you, by keeping the muscles soft, supple and hydrated, the body can reset itself to homeostasis (ground zero) after a good rest in a comfortable, neutral position. Meaning: through effective stretching, good hydration & nutrition complimented with being treated by a quality massage therapist – who thinks outside the box to holistically aligning your body and restoring balance – you can avoid the expensive and over priced treatments of the stereotypical (and financially focused) Chiros/Physios that prefer the 5-20 minute ‘treatments’ that don’t address your dynamic needs and evolving body.
Find a great therapist who works towards your health through education, and restoring balance to get you off the treatment merry-go-round.
