Where has the last 6 weeks of lockdown gone to??!!
Our lives have changed, and we are continuing to adapt to the “new norm”.
The weeks to come will bring more change and different normals, and then more change, however, hopefully all for the better.
Our bodies and minds are going through these changes with our environment, however, we are so programmed to do the same thing for so long, are bodies are a bit slower to adapt.
This can lead to mental and physical micro traumas, that present in upset sleep, pain onset, anxiousness, stress, feeling overwhelmed, overthinking and many more.
We are lucky at NDP to have Chartered Physiotherapists who specialise in Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture, Myofascial Release (MFR), Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and a few things considered amazingly alternative.
If you are into this alternative, or want to try something new, here are a few ideas to get the most from your (1) breathing, (2) self-acupressure, and (3) energy holds, especially in this virus stricken world.
I have explained these over 3 separate posts so keep watching!
