Tuesday Tip

Tuesday Tip – Drink your water! I advise all my clients to drink plenty of water, especially the first few hours after a treatment.

Why?

Drinking water helps your body to balance all the fluids you need to keep you alive, and nourishes your cells, tissues and organs for healthy fertility⁠ (this goes for men as well as women!).

Water helps your muscles to work properly⁠, and to recover well when you’ve been exercising.

Water helps your skin to look good – if you’re dehydrated you might notice drier, flakier, dull looking skin, especially the skin on your face⁠.

How can you get more water into your daily routine?⁠

➡️ Drink at least one glass every morning, before you start hitting the tea or coffee⁠

➡️ Have a glass of water with every meal or snack⁠

➡️ Take a bottle with you – in your bag, at your desk or in the car. A re-useable vacuum bottle is better than a plastic one, and many Refill locations mean you can top up if you’re out and about – check out Litter Free Coast and Sea for an app that helps you find the closest.⁠

I hope these tips help get you drinking more water – remember it can take at least 21 days for a new habit to stick. Challenge yourself to drink more water for the next 21 days and tell me how you get on (I’ll be your accountability buddy😇). If you want to send me a message – just click on the ‘Say Hello’ button.

Virtual Support

I want to play my part in keeping my clients (and myself) safe and well during the current Corona virus pandemic. That means that for my clients, hands-on treatments have been suspended for the time being. Currently suggestions from government mean that the earliest potential opening date for hands-on therapies may be some time in July.

I am providing online consultations / support at this time. If you do need support or would like further information or advice about the services I can offer, then please use the contact form to get in touch.

FERTILITY CLIENTS – If you are waiting for your fertility clinic to re-open, this may be the perfect time to prepare yourself using a holistic approach for when your fertility journey can begin again. We can work together online, with specific advice and self-care to look after your fertility during this ‘down-time’.

For everyone: I have a selection of self-care reflexology videos available for you to try (there are also simple diagrams to help you on the Freebies tab). Do have a go if you’ve got some spare time and need a little guidance. I am also keeping in touch via my Facebook and Instagram pages, so do check in from time to time and say hi!

If you feel that you just want to talk to someone, I’m available during my usual office hours (Mon-Thurs, 9-3), by email or phone.
