What treatments we are experiencing…

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet correspond with different areas of the body. Usually, after a treatment your tension may be reduced and you might feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of wellbeing improving. Reflexology is a therapy which can be received by anyone at any age. Appointments are available with Lucy Lowdon Tuesday - Thursday and are £45 for the 1 hour session.

LOOK AFTER YOUR HEALTH WITH ESKIMO®-3 FISH OIL A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids has many benefits for your health. As well as supporting your heart and brain, regular consumption of omega-3s is also beneficial for your skin, joints and mood. However, the typical western diet is low in omega-3s, as we simply don't eat enough fish, in particular the oily fish needed to supply the body with the essential omega-3s it needs. It may therefore be helpful to keep your body's levels of the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA topped up with a fish oil supplement. Eskimo®-3 fish oil is of the highest quality from fully traceable sources and is enriched with vitamin E and Pufanox®, an antioxidant blend unique to the Eskimo® range, to ensure long term stability. Available to buy from Wellness Centre Newcastle.

New BCA research shows that 57% of Brits are moving less since lockdown began (Posted on 2nd Dec 2020 by BCA) We have launched new research investigating the impact long-term lockdown

restrictions have had on the nation’s physical wellbeing and routines.

Conducted with OnePoll, the research explored lifestyle habits and routines of 10,000 people across the UK, to better understand the biggest changes to the population’s physical wellbeing as a result of lockdown and the impact continued restrictions may have. The survey-based study revealed that young people have noticed the biggest impact to their physical wellbeing throughout lockdown, with 18-24-year olds experiencing more symptoms of back pain since March than over 55s. With 43% of Brits having worked from home throughout this period, all age groups found exercise the most challenging

routine to stick to, and this is the routine they want to most improve in 2021. Catherine Quinn, President of the British Chiropractic Association, said: “Lockdown has brought unprecedented changes to all our lives – this includes our general lifestyle and day-to-day routines. With the nation in the second round of lockdown and restrictions very likely to continue into 2021, we wanted to understand the impact this period has had on the nation’s physical wellbeing. The results showed that all ages have been impacted, with routines like exercise being unanimously the hardest to stick to. We were surprised to find that 18-24-year olds have been more impacted than other age group, particularly in areas such as frequency of back pain, exercise and sleep quality. Traditionally, back strain or injury most commonly occurs through wear and tear as we age, or injury. What this data suggests, however, is that there’s been a sharp rise in the prevalence of back pain amongst younger people. Key insights from the study include:

  • Nearly two thirds (57%) of people are spending more time sitting down than before lockdown

  • Only a third of people have kept to their wellbeing routines during lockdown

  • Exercise and getting outside each day are the hardest routines to stick to, with 42% of Brits not finding time for these in the week

  • Men are nearly twice as likely (41%) to stick to new routines than women (23%)

  • 37% of Brits say personal motivation will be the biggest barrier to improving routines, if lockdown continues into 2021

  • Weather trumps lockdown restrictions – 56% of people think the winter weather will have a bigger impact on routines such as exercise, over increasing lockdown restrictions

  • Nearly a third of people have experienced poor sleep quality during lockdown

  • One in four Brits have experienced new symptoms of back, shoulder and neck pain during lockdown

  • To manage feelings of tension and back pain, 25% of people have purchased self-support tools, but only 15% have consulted their GP or a chiropractor (10%). Nearly half of people haven’t sought any support at all yet (46%)

  • Looking to 2021, the biggest priority for people’s lifestyle is g

etting into a better exercise routine (47%), followed closely by spending less time sitting and more time outside (42%). Spending more time with family and friends (35%) is an equal priority as having a better sleep routine (35%) and balanced diet (37%)

  • Nearly 75% of 18-24-year olds are spending more time sat down since lockdown

  • 40% of 18-24 years old are experiencing poor sl

eep quality, worse than any other age group

  • One in three 18-24-year olds have experienced new symptoms of back, neck or shoulder pain since March and 80% of this group are experiencing them every single week

  • Only 12% of 18-24-year olds have sought support from their GP, and 7% have consulted a chiropractor

  • 18-24-year olds are more concerned than any other age group about the impact ongoing lockdown restrictions will have on their wellbeing routines
