Wellbeing and Recovery Massage

Mobility and core stimulation exercise, great for anyone, martial artist have a head start with the movement style. People ask me about mobility frequently, especially if looking to expand mobility drills or those bodybuilding who want to be more flexible/supple, is Tai chi good, is yoga good, is dance good. Yes they are good because they stimulate and explore the range of the hips and shoulder joint, exercise the core and activate a combination of muscle fibres. Research suggests that this is good for long term mobility and health. Most importantly have fun with it, let me know how you get on, I have tagged a pro level vegan athlete on this one for info, and should they wish to add to the discussion #wellbeing #instagood #feelgood #muscle #sportsperformance #trysomethingnew #remedialmassage #sport #sportsmassage #healthy #healthybody #selfcare #injury #fitspo #resilience#vegan

Self defence in one of its many forms, maybe it’s about good negotiation, exit strategy, escaping locks/grabs or chokes, fighting multiple opponents, fitness and weight loss, weapons defence, ground defence, mindfulness or meditation, its endless...

Most importantly it’s about developing yourself, taking back some control and building confidence

Strength training and functional movement are key in rehabilitation from muscular skeletal injury. Why not make it fun, learn self defence, build confidence and reduce anxiety. We always begin with Chi Kung and meditation #positivevibes#motivation #healyourbody #lifestyle #gains #bodybuilding #veganbodybuilding #instagood #fitness #success #progression #training #fitfam #fitover40 #vegan #veganlifestyle #goals #meditation #plymouth #devon#motivationmonday#martialarts #weightlossjourney#mma #functionaltraining #functionalmovement #strength #strengthtraining#confidence #mentalhealth
