🏃♀️🏃♀️Post Boston Marathon things!
This email was the best thing to wake up to this morning!
So incredibly proud of all my clients who set a goal and then crush it!
This client did just that!! Keep crushing those goals!
We are back with another ☺️
We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience with our athletic therapist, Cassandra Mol! Thank you to all our wonderful clients who take the time to write such kind words on Google Reviews!
Did you have a fun filled March Break and need some rest and relaxation? Considering booking a massage therapy or athletic therapy appointment today!
It’s finally time to announce that Health in Focus is growing…. Again! But this time in a REALLY BIG way! We’re adding a SECOND LOCATION! HiF is coming to Kingston’s east end!!!
Health in Focus East will be conveniently located along Hwy 15 in the Empire Centre at 496 Discovery Ave Unit 9 (right beside Sims Animal Hospital). Our new 2800 sq ft facility will offer all of the same high quality services and care you’ve come to appreciate & expect from us at HiF, but we’re planning to surprise you with a couple of new things too!
This growth will allow us to better serve more people in our community in our purposeful, collaborative & client centred way.
Our target opening date for HiF East is early March 2022! We will still continue to operate Health in Focus Downtown at 42 Queen Street, we’re just getting a bit big for our cozy downtown space and need to spread our wings a little bit. ☺️
We can’t thank our clients & our amazing community enough for all of the support since we opened HiF Downtown less than two years ago. This isn’t possible without you!!! Stay tuned for more updates & announcements throughout the renovation process.
Today we remember…
Those who have and continue to serve.
Those who have fallen, but are never forgotten.
Today we remember.
Today we give thanks.
Today we are safe.
Because of the brave.
Cassandra Mol Certified Athletic Therapist updated their business hours.
To new adventures and new teams!
I have been keeping this secret for a little while…..
I’m the Head Athletic Therapist for St. Lawrence College for the 21/22 season 😱😱
It’s still doesn’t feel real that this is my job title! It’s been a career goal of mine to be a head AT, and to get the opportunity to do it in my home city feels amazing!
To everyone who helped me get here, you know who you are. Thank you!!
Ps. I’ll still be sticking around .ygk so if your a past, present, or future client down worry. We can still work together to get you moving and performing pain free.
You wouldn’t DIY car repairs, so why are you trying to DIY a rehab plan?
A professional repairs a car for a reason, there is a lot of complex electrical, computer chips, hoses, gears, and parts to a car. If cars aren’t built properly or maintained properly then they are not allowed on the roads. The average person wouldn’t DIY car repairs.
You know what else has a complex wiring system, a computer chip, hoses, gears, and parts. Your body!
The nervous system is a very complex make up of electrical impulses that work very similar to the wiring in a car or your house. Your brain is the best computer chip of all, and brake down way less often. The fluid in your body (blood) travels through a complex series of hoses, pumps (heart), and spark plugs (heart beat). Your joints act like gears, and there are whole lot of other parts inside that do amazing wonderful things. But yet so many people try to DIY their rehab plan, instead of consulting a professional.
When our car breaks down we immediately take it to a mechanic to get it fixed, but yet when our body breaks down we pull out our phone and ask Dr. Google.
Why? Why do we not have the same appreciation for our body as we do our car?
A car breaks down we can get another one. If our body breaks down we are in for a long ride on a big bumpy road to recovery (see what I did there).
Take care of your body, and take it to your mechanic when something doesn’t feel right.
Are you a DIYer or are you a head straight for the mechanic kind of person? (For either your car or body)
“I don’t feel it” - Athlete after trying a body awareness or mobility exercise.
💪 The biggest misunderstanding in rehab is ever exercises you should feel the “muscle burn”.
Don’t get me wrong there are many that will give you the “burn” and there is a time and place for strength training exercises. But for an exercise to be effective in your rehab you don’t have to feel it working.
💪Sometimes athletes are so strong that strength training in their rehab won’t make a difference. But what will make a difference is mobility work and exercises that help build body and joint awareness.
🐻 If your brain and joints can’t communicate it’s bad news bears. This can lead to pain, injury and disfunction. But there are simple and effective ways to help get them back together working in harmony!
Comment “bear” if you want to learn more about how to create a better body awareness and communication!
Long weekend vibes! 🌞⛅️
Swipe to see the most epic sunset on our last night! 😍😍
An amazing extended long weekend spent in
No bugs, no phones, just us!
And a friendly reminder to take more vacations with less distractions.
Name a better way to spend a Monday night…
Change can be good! Hear me out!
Change can be growth
Change can be positive
Change can be beautiful
I use to avoid change, the unknowns gave me anxiety. I found comfort in the status quo.
But the one thing they don’t tell you about change, is it’s a catapult for growth.
Take a hair cut for example, you change your hair so it can grow healthier, stronger, and longer.
So why not take the same approach to workouts, training, rehab, life, (insert what ever here) If you don’t switch it up every once and a while. Make a change. Then how do you know if your growing, getting healthier, stronger, or better.
Change can be scary and messy. But I can also be oh soooo beautiful!
Double tap if you embrace change!
I was so incredibly angry, disappointed, scared, and powerless.
At 16 years old I was told I would have to take a year off dance to rehab my Achilles. At 16 this didn’t fly with me, I knew I deserved better. I got a second opinion, and only had to take a week off. With modification and a solid rehab plan, I got back to what I loved!
You have control over your rehab, if you are feeling powerless and defeat in the rehab process. It’s time for a second opinion.
I have been in your shoes, and I know there is something better! You don’t have to feel overwhelmed and alone!
My philosophy as an Athletic Therapist is to support everyday-athletes in the process of rehab to get them back to the life and activities they love!
Bad day fishing, is better than a good day working!
But what’s the saying when you have a good day fishing, and you both love your jobs???
Happy Fathers Day!
Another good year at our annual Father’s Day fishing trip!
🚨QUICK RESPONSE!! 🚨
The difference between life and death.
The difference between something minor turning into something major.
The difference between being effective and powerless.
This is the job of first responders, I am a first responder for athletes!
Athletic Therapy has been highlighted on the big stage in professional sport more this year then ever in my career. There has been 3 incidence on National television, two in hockey and one in soccer. I am honoured to say because of the amazing Athletic Therapists, Doctors, and Medical Team that these athletes are going to be ok.
This was because of their quick response! Because they trained their whole career to hopefully never use these skills.
I have trained my whole career to hopefully never use these skills, but if the situation calls for it I’m there!! Ready, able, and willing for the athlete, the coach, the parent! I’m Ready!
This is why it’s important to have trained professionals at every sporting event, for every team, for every level. Because you just never know what the difference is between having someone with the skills there or not.
Next time your at a game or a tournament, take a look around. Ask the questions where are the first responders?
Ask your coach, the managers, the organization where are the first responders?
Do it for your children, your spouse, your friend, your parent, for you!
Where are the first responders?
DM me if you have any questions on how an Athletic Therapist or First Responder can help you or your team!
