STAFF NEWS
We have been running a healthy eating initiative for the staff in the clinic – encouraged by having on site access to our new Clinical Dietician. We have two golden girls who win employee of the month for sure for collectively losing 39IIbs, which is over 2 stone and the equivalent to 18 bags of sugar!!!!!!

Laura Clarke is our new on-site Dietician and latest member of our team. She is originally from Scotland but we lured her to Merseyside and have kept her here for the last 14 years.
She is not only a lovely lady who is very motivational, she is also extremely knowledgeable on all things FOOD. She can guide you on how best to eat well for you, stimulate weight loss and improve any health issues and heal the body from a lot of chronic clinical diseases. Laura always goes the extra mile to help you achieve the results you desire. Laura also teaches Pilates and will be offering some classes in our new studio soon!

TIPS
POSTURE:
None of us have perfect posture all of the time but we should know where our bodies are in time and space and how to come back to a better neutral alignment regularly throughout the day!
So, set yourself a goal of checking your posture regularly throughout your day no matter where you are.
• Start at your feet try and equally distribute your weight between your big toe, little toe and mid heel.
• If standing make sure your knees are not locked out, keep the knee cap and thigh muscles soft.
• Try and keep your pelvis in a neutral position. If sitting sit equally on your sit bones (the bony prominences in your bottom cheeks), if standing point your tail bone downwards not tucked under or out.
• Grow upward and tall through your spine and not allow the front of your rib cage to flare forwards or sink in.
• Shoulders have a large range of movement and can sit in a lot of positions that can cause problems. Think about relaxing them down away from the ears, draw the shoulder blades gently towards the spine and down.
• And last but not least in this day and age we jut out our chins a lot which can cause neck pain. Try and lengthen the back of the neck and gently nod your chin down and in to feel a stretch at the back of the neck.
• So check, are your ears in line with your shoulders and shoulders in line with your hips.
Try to correct your posture and hold for 10 to 30 seconds at a time every hour or so. Each time you do this you enable the postural muscles to work and correct any potential muscle imbalances you may have.
