Remedial Massage Therapist Kat Share's Her Crunchy Asian Beef Salad Recipe
At Just Knead It - Sports and Remedial we are on a mission to change Australian's attitude towards health - so you can live the life you envisage. The statistics are scary on how much are lives are impacted and how much money we as a nation spend on conditions that are preventable with changes to risk factors. These include lower back pain, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and conditions caused by smoking and drug use ($65 Billion in 2011). With small shifts and simple changes we could make a world of difference!
We get that a big part of this shift is food. Yet there is a real stigma around health food not being very appetising. We're on a mission to break this myth! A perfect example is Kat's Crunchy Asian Beef Salad! This recipe is quick, simple and really flavoursome.
A massage therapist's plea to the enthusiastic runner!
Dear future running enthusiast!
We know! You are feeling motivated and itching to get started... You used to train upwards of 5 times a week so of course you can still do that! We understand you used to be able to run 5 - 10 kilometres off the back of no training - Jumping straight back into that distance makes sense!! You want to get fit 'LIKE YESTERDAY,' so training every day to keep up the enthusiasm and get into a routine quickly is the only option!!
Yet here's the reality. You're not as young as you used to be!!! At some point you worked up to that training load - IT TOOK TIME!!! Getting straight back into it (like you did 10 years ago!) is a sure way to end up injured or on the massage table!
So, can we please offer some suggestions!!!
Good luck from the Just Knead It Team!!!
Day in day out we see people our remedial massage clinics complaining of neck and shoulder pain. The typical story is along the lines of - It's been there forever. It gives me a blinding headache and I can't get rid of it!
They complain of pain at the back of their head, headaches, tightness across the shoulders and/or this really annoying spot between the shoulders that they just can't seem to get rid of! So what can be done?
