It is now 2018 and I realise this blog is in great need of updates. Please bear with me while I slowly make changes to it.
I am a physiotherapist and I specialise in the musculoskeletal field (i.e. back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, persistent pain etc). In addition to my BSc. Physiotherapy degree, I also have a MSc. Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy from King’s College London. I am qualified in acupuncture, hydrotherapy and Pilates among other things and have completed various other postgraduate courses to help me maximise my treatment outcomes with my patients. Because I believe the mind and body are inherently connected, I embrace a holistic approach to the treatment I provide such that they are empowered to be able to self-manage and do the things they want to do in life. Hence I often incorporate concepts of mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and relaxation techniques.
My mission is to help others look good and feel good about themselves in life through my own very little corner of the World Wide Web. I intend to write about health, exercise and little life lessons that I come across which have impacted me and helped me grow. It is my hope that I would make a positive difference (big or small) to the people who read my blog, even if it was just one person. Whether it is by sharing an encouraging word, putting a smile on your face, lifting your spirits, or providing you with some amusement at my expense!
I have far too many hobbies, which take up an insurmountable amount of time. I am a hugely sentimental person and I love photos and scrapbooking. You can never take the exact same photo or capture the exact same expression twice, which is why I like to have my camera at the ready, even if it is just my phone. I love to eat, read, paint, travel, play the piano, dabble in crafty things, and from time to time, become obsessed with cleaning. I love doing things that I’ve never done before even if it terrifies the living daylights out of me, which is easy if you have a fear of heights. I loved indoor rock climbing but not being able to let go of the wall despite being securely harnessed is a bit of a problem. Coasteering (jumping off a 50-foot cliff into the sea) was perhaps the dumbest but most exhilarating experience. You definitely want an experienced guide with you for this, which I did. All in all, I believe we only have one life to live and should live it to the full. We should continually seek opportunities to grow and to push ourselves outside our comfort zones. Who knows what you might accomplish or what new talents you discover that you never knew you had?!
A self-confessed food addict and avoider of the gym (not a great combination!), I have to make myself find ways to keep in shape. Gotta tone that tum and shape that bum, as they say. For now I enjoy power yoga, badminton and walks in the park. Of course, diet plays a hugely important role too and I eat as healthily as possible, but I do fall off the band wagon every now and then (hey I’m only human!). I like food that is healthy, quick and easy to make, but still packs in fistfuls of flavour. Who says you can’t have your cake, eat it, and still fit into a bikini? Creating such foods on the other hand can be a challenge and I’m making great efforts to learn.
I would love to hear from you so do leave your comments and get in touch.
Thanks for dropping by!
“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.” – Anthony Robbins
