I just want to take the opportunity to wish you a happy, healthy Xmas and an even more super-charged new year!
Here’s my gift for you:
Winding back through everything that I’ve been exploring, learning and developing in the last year including Lymphatic Health Exercise, Metabolic Health Exercise, Holistic Health Analysis, Nutrition, Osteopathy, Yoga/Qigong and keeping the immune system firing on all cylinders, I’d say this video shares the single-most important piece of lesser-known observational knowledge about health regulation, that I see as a huge missing link to some of the most important issues with human health today.
It’s a humble presentation that is by no means polished and I hope you have the time to give it some good attention.
Whether for general knowledge, building strength/stamina, or wanting to understand more about how to address a health problem, I feel this info should be known by doctors, healthcare practitioners, teachers and the public alike.
… and I’ve been spending all this time since February turning at least 5 years of specialist knowledge into something that I can help people with as online consultations/resources/tools.
It’s certainly an ongoing process!
… and in the coming year, I’m going to concentrate on working with Osteopaths to help further improve the profession and the quality of the information … and therefore reach those in need on a much more wider scale.
I’d like you to know that I’m here for you and anyone that may need informed options, direction, prioritisation and support to become more healthy, stress resilient and address any issues with chronic health complaints.
Due to the fact that we can sometimes not understand what might be helping or hindering our health, I’m happy to talk with anyone who might be interested in what I do, especially to those who are struggling with isolation, symptoms, poor habits … or whether they’ve been told that nothing is known to help with the condition … or are assuming it’s ‘normal signs of ageing’… or simply wish to feel improvement and try something new to move forwards with.
So be it moving well, eating well, sleeping well, breathing well, thinking well and/or feeling well, I’m here to help as a gateway to options, guidance and prioritisation by sharing very useful information about self-management as well as look at referral to other forms of treatment and management in the areas we decide that need the work most.
… for an introductory workshop introducing why and how to lighten up and refresh the lymphatic system, whilst efficiently boosting energy levels and feeling good?
… I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve been thinking, living, breathing and developing for the last few years!
Modern life can be draining (in terms of feeling fresh and full of life) and it sometimes can’t all be fixed with an hour of yoga per week, or cutting out a particular food type, or an extra hour in bed (although that could all help!)
It’s important to figure out what works to find and keep your own health, be it the right type of treatment, nutrition, job, sleeping pattern or movement practice. (… Bare in mind your local Osteopath/Naturopath could be able help you holistically look into these avenues, as there’s no faster replacement for relevant treatment, advice and referral!)
When it comes to movement, little/often is usually a lot more effective than changing through extremes of inactivity and activity.
The difficult bit is knowing whether you have enough time for yourself, due to responsibilities, job-demands, caring for others or even your own beliefs about what you enjoy doing!
I have looked into many ways of moving and breathing well, taking influence from the philosophies of Osteopathy, Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Wim Hoff Method, Tapping, Buteyko breathing techniques and osteopathic lymphatic drainage techniques, whilst keeping it nice and simple, effective and fun!
All movement is better than no movement when it comes to the lymph flow, however the routines I have pulled together I feel help to fast-track this fluid exchange, combined with the theory and practical application of what I call Lymphatic Health Exercise, they keep things refreshed quite literally and actually in a surprisingly short space of time!
The 1.5hr workshop will cover:
The essential anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system.
The key structural and functional components of breathing well.
The context behind lymphatic drainage and healthy movement.
How exercise is organised and developed in the brain and why the type of exercises you choose to do are important.
How to refresh the body, brain and immune system quickly and efficiently.
How to combine specific drainage movements with meditation, mindfulness and breath-work.
Exercises that aim to particularly improve/maintain freedom of motion between the muscles and connective tissues.
Easy ways to warm-up and cool-down the body.
A set of great movement and breathing techniques that are adaptable to different times of the day.
… this introductory workshop will not be looking into how to go about specifically modifying the routines in the instances of aches, pains, tension, relaxation issues or fatigue (although it could be that it generally helps in some situations). There will be a longer workshop coming soon in November that will cover these areas in more detail. … It’s also not a promise that this can fix all ailments, but it might just be something that’s missing in your life, and knowing more about why and how go about your exercise could make an improved difference and motivate you to do it more!
If you can’t make this one, there will be more in the new year, plus some useful videos coming as soon as possible.
If you know someone (including friends/family/clients/patients) who may benefit from this, please share the Brighton (Oct 12th) and/or London (Oct 13th) Eventbrite event links below – thanks!
