The new year is well underway, and many of us have thought about making some positive changes in our lives. But somehow, we meet resistance despite yearning for something different. The problem? Most of us like routine! It gives us a sense of order that helps us feel in control of our daily lives.
Have you ever had someone press into your muscles and been astounded at how sore they are? You think, “But I felt fine!?”. This is something we see all too often in clinic – in particular with patients that come for regular maintenance sessions (as opposed to those that present with an injury).

Let’s talk about new years resolutions. Do they have to turn into another unsuccessful thing with which to beat ourselves? We are creatures of grand gestures, often knowing full well that we are not going to achieve these unrealistic goals when we are already struggling to keep up with work, a social life, children, the elusive gym, the housework and all of the other things that we have on our to do list.

You know you need to do it. It’s fast becoming an issue, a priority, not attending to it may even cost you… and yet, the task in hand slips a day… a week… a month. At this point, you know that you have just indulged in the world sport of procrastination.
It’s most definitely that time of year when we all take a close look at our diet and lifestyle habits, and debate the changes that we can make to ensure a healthier year ahead. It is no surprise then that it is now we find that the gyms are at their busiest as people throw themselves into a tough fitness regime to achieve their fitness and/or weight loss goals quickly.
We are open as normal until Friday 21st December, reopening Wednesday 2nd January.
If you are in pain and need to see someone over the Christmas period, Sian (Osteopath) will be working in the Ealing clinic on 22nd and 29th December, and in Uxbridge on 28th December, and Jo (massage therapist) will be available on 27th and 28th December in Uxbridge.
To make an appointment, call the normal landline numbers (Uxbridge 01895 200050, Ealing 0203757 6544) and leave a message and someone will get back to you.
Emily Fawell DiplON BANT NTC CNHC Nutritional Therapist The festive period is packed with unhealthy temptations: alcohol, rich puddings, sweets, chocolates, crisps, roasted nuts, buffets! We know it’s all hard to resist. We are presented with plates overflowing with food, in the name of celebrating, and it’s hard not to overeat.
