More strategies for 2014

Generally, I don’t tend to be very specific in my blogs, because everyone is different, and I aim to encourage empowered thinking and self-awareness, rather than spoon feed you with ‘advice’. Genuinely, what’s right for one person, can be totally wrong for someone else – it really isn’t me copping out, it’s back to what I said in an earlier blog – one size

Illness and Recovery

Well, what a hideous ‘lurgy’ there has been knocking many of us out recently. The really tough part seemed to be the relentless need to pace oneself after the very worst of it had passed. Being fairly old (well, nearly 60!), I remember when recovery was factored into illness, under the name of convalescence… Now, it seems we expect ourselves to get back to

Choices around your wellbeing

Attend Pilates or yoga, go for a run, a bike ride or a swim, surf… have a massage! – all are great ways of connecting with yourself and looking after your wellbeing. Clients enjoy the choices I offer and find they address different problems. Some alternate between a stronger massage and a more gentle one. Explore, experiment, shake things up a little. As you

Rossiter Payoff – Happier Skiing!

Another success story with Rossiter … After massaging a client with hammer toe, I suggested he try a Rossiter workout. He mentioned discomfort when buying new shoes but not considered taking any action.¬†After a couple of workouts he was aware finding comfy shoes was much easier – result! However, the real payoff (for him) came when he went skiing. Unlike many of the other

One Size Does Not Fit All…

… not in any area of your life. Fact – pretty much across the board, though I grant you there may be some exceptions! Generally, the trick is to get to know yourself better and keep deepening that relationship – it’s lifelong. That way, whatever the trends, the latest discoveries, breakthroughs etc, you can check in with yourself, trusting that you will know the

Catch up, Maintain or Progress?

While some people seem to like to hit a New Year at top speed, others may find it more useful to ‘feel’ their way in. That way it could be easier to decide whether the focus needs to be catch-up, maintain or progress, or indeed a mix of all three. So, as we’re half way through February, now might be a good time to

Ankle sorted with Rossiter!

A client was suffering with ankle problems while keeping to their running regime, so it seemed vital to ‘get it sorted’ before an injury occurred or their dedication waned through pain. So… I suggested going barefoot at home (after my experience with my Barefoot Walks last year) and a short Rossiter workout – literally 20 minutes. Instant results! The ankle felt ‘smooth’, ‘oiled’ and

Add something new, drop something old…

Some years ago, I remember a friend telling me how after Christmas, she sat down with her children to find places for their new toys. The deal was they had to give away an old one for every new toy. As a sentimental, ‘stuff’ queen, I was impressed by this, as it clearly could prevent collecting clutter, and, almost more to the point, encouraged

2014 here we go!

So, even though my year end is September and I do a lot of assessing, analysing and projecting at that point, I just can’t resist the pull of New Year to do more of the same. Maybe it’s being part Scottish, or, in a different life, was married to a Scot… who knows? I seem to be compelled to follow a closing and opening
