Ah, the Piriformis. This muscle can cause so much pain! I find the best way to release it is with a massage ball, against the wall or sitting on a foam roller. A good old stretch really helps too!

🔈 RELATIONSHIP OF SCIATIC NERVE TO PIRIFORMIS
(A) The sciatic nerve usually emerges from the greater sciatic foramen inferior to the piriformis.
(B) In 12.2% of 640 limbs studied by Dr. J. C. B. Grant, the sciatic nerve divided before exiting the greater sciatic foramen; the common fibular division (yellow) passed through the piriformis.
(C) In 0.5% of cases, the common fibular division passed superior to the muscles where it is especially vulnerable to injury during intragluteal injections.
First day back at work for 2 weeks and my lovely client, @chrysschlapak brings me unexpected gifts! 🤩 Arty Anatomy book and a homemade chocolate and banana muffin 🍫🍌 Thank you so much 💜
HOLIDAY TIME!! 🥳🥳
I am officially oot the office until Thur 21st April 🤩 Only 2 appointments left, then I'm in production for 5 weeks so hours will be very limited until June. Mental! I will try to accommodate as much as possible though. It's always worth a message last minute 👀
I'm hoping the weather is as good as when this picture was taken about a week ago at Wardie Bay. The forecast doesn't say so but I'm ever hopeful, as Ardnamurchan has its own micro-climate. Want a go of my new paddle board 🌊🤞
I'll still be answering messages when I can. If in any doubt about niggles, please look at https://youtube.com/channel/UCmWYC_AX2bxRoiRw7Lwf9yA for stretches and mobilisations that could really benefit you until your next treatment 🙌

What a wonderful Tuesday off! A workout at @the_club_edinburgh a massage from @sharon_movewellyoga (my QLs & Glutes feel AWESOME 🙌) and a refreshment from @jacscoffeevan (yes, I am that wanker that ordered a decaf coconut milk latte 😆) A sit in the sun now before the wee man comes out of school.
College starts again in a couple of weeks so chilled days to myself will be NO MORE 😭🤯 My hours will be changing too (Tuesday afternoons and Thursdays) but still operating from the gym. Get in touch for more info/to be added to the mailing list 😁
Just a wee post for some clarification on the latest update regarding wearing face coverings for your treatments.
Unfortunately because I do not offer facials anymore, you will still be required to wear a face covering for the duration of your treatment. If you request the jaw area to be worked on, you can then temporarily remove your face covering for this. Please let me know before your treatment if this is required!
Hopefully this won't be for too much longer. Thank you all for your understanding and patience 🙌 and thanks to Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation (SMTO) for their updates and questions to the Scottish Government too 💙🤍
I am very excited to announce that as of June I will be back offering treatments in LEITH! 😄 I am delighted to be part of the team at The Club 🥰 If you haven't received any emails from me but would like to then please message me your details. Hope to see you all soon!

Good news I am still able to work from home and there are no changes to the current protocols for coming to appointments 👌 Thanks so much to the Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation (SMTO) for their continued hard work in collecting all relevant information for us therapists at this difficult and confusing time 💙🙏🙌🏴
The fight for answers continues.....💁♀️🙏
Sports massage therapists angry at lack of return to work date unlike beauticians Therapists who provide sports massage have demanded to know when they can return to work after others providing similar services were permitted to continue operating or have been told when they can resume.
It's really been a confusing week for us! I feel for those therapists that were able to start up then told to cease business again so quickly. I am glad my situation is that I will be working from home for the time being or I may have started up this week too, only to be told NO! Some businesses have a clear view of what is and not allowed. Unfortunately we are left in limbo. Clarification is required. Classed as medical this week then back under the spa and beauty bracket. We are obviously the "grey area". If anything good comes out of this it will be the recognition we deserve. Hats off to the SMTO working their socks off to give us the clarification we need for the future, as well as in these present circumstances. I will not be starting up again until schools start back in August. This is a personal decision of mine that works around my kids and also waiting until I feel safe enough to do so while taking into consideration my own clients safety. Good luck to all therapists going back this month. I applaud you all. It's a real anxious time for everyone. Peace and love ✌🥰
