How Meditation Can Help Reduce Anxiety

Ever felt like your thoughts were too loud to focus on work? Or struggled to fall asleep because of a niggling worry? You most likely have, because most of us deal with stress at one time or another during our lives. Some people experience heightened stress levels often, even while going about everyday activities, which is a symptom of clinical anxiety. One of the most effective ways to treat anxiety is through daily mindfulness and meditation practice.

So, what exactly is meditation? While interest around meditation has rapidly grown in the last decade, many are still in the dark about how beneficial the practice can be to mental health. This article offers a brief introduction to meditation and a handful of science-backed ways it is proven to aid better mental health. Read More

Physiotherapy rehabilitation after a COVID-19 infection (MSK and respiratory) and Intensive care unit stay.

The father of the director of Excellence Physiotherapy contracted COVID-19 and was urgently admitted in Intensive Care Unit where he was put on ventilator assisted breathing for more than a month.

When he finally came out of coma, he had lost a lot of muscle mass and had problem breathing like most patients in his case.

Immune Health and Covid-19

Our immune system is intelligent, reactive, and highly effective at protecting us from external invaders such as viruses and other foreign (to our own tissues) organisms.

We are not helpless in the face of exposure to the COVID virus as our immune system has evolved over millions of years to protect us against multiple and continual assaults against our biological integrity.

While there is no single one factor that will treat or prevent the virus there are multiple strategies that are worth implementing to optimise our immune function. Read More

The Secret of Self-Care

We beat ourselves up for not being up to the standard. Often forgetting who set this standard for us. We are very good at criticising ourselves. At pointing our flaws. We are good at creating pain and imbalances in our bodies, minds and souls.

We punish ourselves for not being perfect. We punish ourselves for not eating a perfect diet, not having perfect exercise regime, even for not having time to relax on a yoga mat as we are too tired to participate in a relaxation session…

What if I tell you that there is a different, more gentle way? Read More

How to keep kids active at home

One of the most difficult aspects of the lockdown has been to be suddenly stuck at home managing to work from home while re-inventing your daily family routine.

For those with children, one massive challenge is to keep them busy (and studying) while you are working. Various people have adopted different strategies – some parents take turns between online meetings and video calls during their shifts, some booked online gym classes for kids and some creative families have managed to create a home playground between the living room and the garden.

I’m sure parents have learned a lot about their kids’ general daily physical activity needs during this time, and I’m sure many have tried to improvise while at same time questioning themselves whether they are on the right path right path. Read More

What is stress? I am sure you would not disagree that stress is undeniably indefinable. One way to understand stress is a psycho-physiological response within the body to some physical, emotional or environmental stimulus.

The Ayurvedic approach to stress and most health concerns is based on an imbalance the energetic properties – the doshas (vata, pitta kapha). Stress is Ayurveda is seen predominantly as a disturbance to our vata dosha, the energy of movement.

Micronutrients – should I use supplements?

When it comes to diet and exercise plans we hear a lot of buzz words and talk about “calculating your macros” but do we really know what we are putting in to our bodies and why? Particularly when it comes to the micro-nutrients, aka vitamins and minerals! Obviously, these are essential for the functionality and health of ALL our tissues.

So, the big question here is; should you supplement? 

The short answer for most of us is; probably.  Read more

Can You Train Your Brain To Build Muscle?

If we really think about it, everything starts with our mind. If we are motivated we tend to eat better, look after our mental health & the opposite if we don’t. The mind responds to two things, the words and the images we feed it.

Here is a quick exercise; imagine holding a lemon in your hand, feeling the texture of the sink, then imagine cutting that lemon in half, then picking up one half and licking it. Did you start to salivate?

This is how Mental Imagery Therapy works in achieving your goals. Read More
