Helping you EAT, MOVE and THINK your way to better health
As the weather is finally improving, we are continuing our focus on improving our health in the great outdoors, another good reason to head down to the beach.
Recently, the practice team has taken up beach-side yoga sessions under the watchful eye of our massage therapist, Catherine Phillipson, who is also a trained yoga instructor. Yoga is a particularly good form of exercise as it builds and tones muscles, improving core strength, flexibility and stability Some forms of yoga also focus on meditative techniques, which are calming and can improve your breathing.
Another plus, especially for us, is that it is great for team building so think of it as a good excuse to get together with friends and family. Yoga is often regarded as a female exercise yet female hormones mean women tend to be more flexible than men – who far less flexible with tighter muscles, so it's a brilliant way to loosen up!
These wonderful yoga photos were taken by Estelle's swimming partner, Mallory Smith.

We are often asked by our regular clients if we are taking on any new patients, so we have adjusted some of our schedules and opened up some spaces especially for seeing new clients. Feel free to spread the word and take an extra business card next time you are in to see us.
Post exercise pick-ups... _
After exercising, we often feel the need so eat immediately. This is because exercise breaks down muscle – it's the reason you feel sore. To start rebuilding that muscle, keep a protein based snack on hand. Trail mix, shakes that include nut butters or nut milk are ideal – or try these luscious protein balls.
Ingredients Method
250 gms pitted dates, soaked in a little water to soften them.
250 gms almonds or sunflower seeds
40mls water
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 dark chocolate chips
50gms coconut flakes
Add the dates, almonds, water and honey to a food processor and blitz until you have grainy texture. Add the chocolate chips and cacao powder then mix just enough to blend together. Spread the coconut flakes on a large plate and, using a teaspoon, roll balls of the mixture into the coconut until well covered.
