Painkillers and NSAIDs versus Osteopathy

Painkillers and NSAIDs versus Osteopathy? This is an area of great debate. Painkillers (such as paracetamol) and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such ibuprofen) are two of the most common pharmaceutical drugs used to treat musculoskeletal (mechanical) pain.

Are you looking to increase your flexibility? Then this stretch workshop is for you. Many people, whether they are elite athletes or desk bound office workers, need to spend more time stretching to increase their range of motion. Lots of injuries and back problems can have their roots in tightness or in balance in the muscles or stiffness around the joints. This workshop is loosely based on the Yin Yoga principle of holding stretches for 3 to 5 minutes, thus also stretching the fascia that surrounds the muscles.

Yin Yoga and Meditation Workshop

Yin Yoga and Meditation Workshop

Yin Yoga is a gentle, slow-paced yoga practice that can help you to deepen your range of motion. It has a specific focus, which is to release the connective tissue of the body. Through this deeper access to the ligaments, fascia and joints, we stimulate the energetic flow within the body. In our yin yoga workshop we will practice floor-based poses in a warm candlelit studio. These poses can be held for up to five minutes, depending on your level of experience. By holding these poses, we encourage relaxation and release in both the mind and the body. We will finish this yoga practice with a Yoga nidra meditation (yogic sleep). You will leave feeling stretched, calm and relaxed.
