Thanks Penny... my neck and shoulders feel a million dollars compared to this morning :)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can highly recommend both Penny and Grant Henderson at Active Chiropractic. If you’ve never been to a Chiropractor and fear the joint cracking approach then these guys are for you. They are McTimoney Chiropractors which means they use a very gentle approach to manipulation and yet it has really powerful results. This is really important to me as I have had poor results from traditional chiropractic treatments. For example the other month I damaged lower spine cycling and within 5 sessions of manipulation, acupuncture and massage Penny had worked her magic and I was back to riding my bike and playing tennis again. I always trust them to sort me out after having overdone things over the weekend
good to know!

Lockdown and tech overload – how to escape your screens

This makes for uncomfortable reading and incessant checking of the latest news in these Covid-19 times doesn’t help us.. So easy in these times for the boundary between work and family life to become blurred and unbalanced, with notifications, calls and messages, interrupting mealtimes and conversations. Please share your thoughts on keeping a balance!

theconversation.com Excessive screen use has been linked to addictive behaviours, changes in mood, increased stress and difficulty sleeping - here's how to take a break.

We've double checked this morning and we are still not allowed to be open for face to face visits in clinic. Hopefully that will change very soon. Hang on in there folks!

How appointments will work when we re-open

Penny explains that many changes have had to take place to safely accomodate and see patients once we re-open with soft phase 2. Please listen to see how this will affect you.

Re-opening news. Currently, we are included in Phase 2 for opening purposes. However, we will only reopen once we are certain that it is safe for you and us to do so. We will re-open our diary to you once we are sure of our definite opening date.

​We are in regular contact with Club Soulgenic on the reopening of the Club and Wellness Centre and their cleaning and protective framework for re-opening. They are being guided by the impressive protocol on reopening produced by UKActive. We are also being guided by the College of Chiropractors and our Chiropractic association.

Because guidelines are changing all the time, it is difficult to be precise about details until nearer the time. However here is a short list of what we are expecting to happen.

* A risk assessment around the time of booking in to see us, this will either be a phone call or an online form.
​* We will only see you if you and all your household are well.
* No children or friends/partners allowed in the room unless with prior arrangement 24 hr before treatment.
​* We will be using a non-contact temperature scanner as you enter the room.
* We will ask you to use hand sanitiser on arrival.
* We will repeat a risk assessment prior to treatment.
* We will be wearing a degree of PPE, confirmation of exactly what to expect will be sent just before we open.
* All surfaces, bench, touch points and the card machine will be sanitised between patients.

As you will appreciate, extra cleaning will take time and we will likely have to limit available appointments each day to incorporate time to sanitise and clean. So until we can all be together again, please stay well and healthy. Enjoy our extra hours of freedom and a little extra time with loved ones.

Happy Liberation day to islanders near and far.

Back Pain in Children | Active Chiropractic

One in four children have regular or daily back pain. Read this and another blog on our website for ideas on helping your children study more safely at home. Simple changes can make the world of difference, they might even be able to concentrate better!

I am intrigued to know if being off school for 5 weeks has decreased or increased that stat. They may be running around more at home, or they are likely to be sat on chairs at home studying on chairs designed for average height adults.
