"But I'm not injured or sick"
You may associate physiotherapy with maneuvering limp or twisted arms and legs through a variety of positions, or something you need when you're suffering from some ilness, stroke or MS. But what if you're a perfectly healty busy bee?
Well, our physiotherapists would say that's exactly why you need them. You see, physiotherapy is real health care focusing on the whole person. Our physiotherapists do wonders, including prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injury, disability and chronic or lifestyle illnesses. We have a mission - not only to restore your independendence and active lifestyle, but to keep it that way.
As physiotherapists, we focus not just on your bones, joints and muscles, but on the person behind them. Thus we may investigate how and what you eat, your addictions and relationships. We look for signs or risk factors of disease. We point out the health risks your current lifestyle poses. We encourage and assist you to start taking charge of your health. You start from where you are!
Physiotherapy is specifically designed to move and strengthen every joint. This means fitness and flexibility. Therefore:
- Your work goes faster and easier.
- You avoid falls and injuries because of your better posture and balance.
- Better control of your risk factors since physiotherapy can reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer (especially the type of breast cancer which is diagnosed after menopause)!
- If you do fall sick or injure yourself, you will recover much faster if you are already active and mobile.
- Your mood and self-image get a boost.
- You become more aware and motivated to make healthy choices.
You may think: "Hey, I work out a lot already!" Well, a visit to our clinic could avert many a niggle and bump. Remember, all this could add up to continuous strain and chronic pain. We show you how to warm up and cool down before and after your workout. We can detect unproductive or downright dangerous parts of your regimen, before damage occurs. We can design a thorough but safe work out. Avoiding injuries is a valuable asset to your health, well-being and even income!
Regardless of your age, our therapists can gauge where you're at - physically, mentally and emotionally. Under our guidance, you'll move through a range of activity designed to empower you. Your heart becomes stronger and healthier as your blood pressure and cholesterol go down. Your bones become stronger. Your blood sugar gets under control. You feel more alert and peaceful. You even sleep better at night.

Importance of deep breathing
The easiest, most natural way to health - breathe deep!
Put one hand on your chest and the other on your diaphragm. Breathe in through your nose to push out your lower hand first and then fill your lungs. Continue for five to ten minutes. We can help you master this.
Deep breathing helps you slow down and become self-aware. You put your stress in reverse. Your mind slows down. New insights emerge. Your muscles relax. You feel less pain. Cells grow better. Your heart and lungs strengthen and expand. Your blood gets more oxygen. Your organs function smoother.
Few minutes - a small price for so much benefit!
Don't eat in front of the television or computer. Take the time the time to slow down and eat without distractions. We tend to eat more whilst distracted. Turn off the television and enjoy your meal.
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
