Exercising Safely…

A little sage advice from Sharron – Ultimate Retreat Osteopath & Sports Massage Specialist:

  • Exercise has so many benefits, but you must ensure that you exercise safely…If you have any health conditions & are unsure if you should exercise, what type of exercise is good for you & how often you should exercise… seek advice from your Doctor in the first instance.
  • Begin your exercise program slowly & boost the activity level gradually…don’t over do it!
  • Wear good footwear & appropriate comfortable clothing.
  • Ensure that you drink plenty of water before, during & after exercise as overheating can lead to dehydration, so watch out for headaches, dizziness, nausea & cramping…& remember single use plastic bottles are bad for your health & the planet so buy a good quality re-useable sports water bottle, with a 1 litre minimum capacity.
  • Take 5-10 minutes to warm up & stretch before exercise & also afterwards…
  • Try to ensure that you enjoy a mixture of different types of exercise, this will reduce the risk of overuse injury from repeatedly doing the same exercise.
  • When you begin strength training, ensure that you take advice from a well qualified professional trainer, it is essential that you have the correct form & that you are doing it safely, start with lighter weights & don’t rush the exercise.
  • Don’t forget to have “rest days” from exercise as your body needs this time to assist recovery.

The treatments are 5* and really help to relax and sort out any injuries. But best of all is the people you meet, I've made some great friends. Don't think twice about booking just do it, you won't regret it!“

Many thanks to all, I feel lighter, refreshed, healthier, & motivated to keep up my exercise & to make some changes to my eating habits.
