Merry Christmas to all our patients! Wishing each and every one of you a happy and healthy break. Osteopathic Works will be closed from Saturday 23rd December until 2nd January 2018 so before we check out for the year we wanted to leave you with some notes on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle during what can be a tempting period for bad habits.
Nutritional therapist, Kerry Torrens, has written a great article (below) on avoiding over-indulgence during the festive season. She emphasises the importance of starting the day with a healthy breakfast and staying hydrated especially during times when the champagne is flowing!
Throughout the year we have written blog posts on how to maintain strength and mobility between Osteopathic treatments. The aim of our treatment is to rebalance the body so that it can function accordingly and therefore be in a state where optimal healing can occur. Be sure to continue following the advice your Osteopath has given you over the Christmas period, whether its stretching/strengthening exercises or nutritional advice. Begin your 2018 in a positive way.
- Maintaining a healthy you
- Resistance Bands
- Spiky Balls
- Natural Medicine
- Foam Rollers
- Stay Motivated. Stay Active
Another tip is to encourage family and friends to get outdoors on Christmas day. It looks like the weather is going to be perfect for backyard cricket or even jump in the pool. Gifting presents that encourage a bit of activity will help ease the guilt that comes with that second serving of Christmas pudding.
If you have an questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact the Clinic or email your Osteopath before the 23rd December. Have a wonderful break and be sure to rest. See you all in the new year!
