What an amazing summer of sport we have had, and how wonderful that the whole nation got behind team GB in such a big way. The Olympics really were fantastic and now the Paralympics have started and the nation can continue with the Olympic fever that seems to have swept us all. At Therapeutics we were all hooked and had a television constantly on so staff and patients didn’t miss a moment.
On Saturday August 4th we held a sponsored walk and cake sale for the charity Young Stroke Survivors Southampton and lots of our patients, rehab gym members and stroke survivors took part in the 4 lap course that was the equivalent of 1 mile. The day was a great success and the participants all completed the course with real determination. Well done to everyone that took part, so far over £850 has been raised which the charity will be able to put to really good use.
We are planning to start a new yoga class on Friday afternoons from 2pm-3pm. The class will include some breath work, gentle mat and standing postures and also time to relax at the end to traditional Indian music. Many studies conclude that Yoga helps improve sleep and reduce stress and anxiety…what a nice way to start the weekend, all relaxed. If you would be interested in joining the small class, suitable for all abilities please call reception on 02380 653707 to find out more details.
If the recent Olympics has inspired you to get off the sofa and get fit, remember Therapeutics has a gym where you can slowly and carefully change from couch potato to athlete!! With very reasonable monthly membership fees and free parking it could be just what you are looking for. Please feel free to come and have a look at the gym during our normal opening hours.
With most staff now having had their summer holidays we are back to business as usual. So whatever you need from physiotherapy, sports massage, gait analysis, Pilates, personal training, podiatry, hypnotherapy or acupuncture (what a list!!) we are here to help.
