Everyone has light bulb moments of why they do their job and this feedback below πŸ‘‡ is why I do mine πŸ₯°
This client who is now in their late teens, was diagnosed with Juvinile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) from the age of 5 years old.

JIA is an autoimmune condition causing joint pain and inflamation throughout the body. With all autoimmune conditions, the immune system, which is supposed to fight invaders like germs and viruses, gets confused and attacks the body’s cells and tissues and with JIA, the body releases inflammatory chemicals that attack the synovium (tissue lining around a joint).

I carried out a massage treatment of slow compression movements, working with a pressure that was comfortable for their body, because in many cases, with inflammatory connective tissue, deeper pressure often causes an inflammatory response which is not what I was aiming for. My objective during this treatment was to alliviate their pain as much as possible which in turn allows them to enjoy being a teenager πŸ’œ

Hello my lovelies ❀️

So Monday is study day for me however I've not felt the best over the weekend so taking today as a chill day, switched the telly off and picked up my book πŸ“–πŸ’•

The book I'm reading is '' Cleanse to Heal" by Dr Anthony William, which I just wanted to share with you all.

Last year I wasint well and though the months of investigations trying to figure out what it was... Which was a kidney stone... they discovered that I had an autoimmune disease effecting my liver. Its called Primary Billary Cirossis (PBC).

There are over 100 different autoimmune diseases effecting various parts of our body but all have the same debilitating symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, tiredness, digestive issues, pain and anxiety just to name a few πŸ™„.

So with a holistic background as a therapist, I know it's vital that I start thinking about how to rebalance myself to reduce these symptoms as much as I can to enjoy life as best I can.. and this book is proving a good starting point.

It explains that the gut is a pathway for us to deliver chemical compounds from food and supplementation to covert into blood glucose and although the correct nutrition is important, it is not the answer to why we are sick, which is what so much health propaganda is based on.

Instead it explains that helping the liver to cleanse from pathogens and toxins that lie deep within the vital organ, is the key to creating health in the rest of the body.

This is obviously one book out of many interesting articles that is out there, but definitely one that helps you raise your awareness and understanding of chronic illness and how we can help ourself when unwell or ideally prevent our self's from becoming unwell.

I got this off Amazon for 17.99 during lock down but there will be many good book stores that have it also.

I also want to touch base with anyone else that has an autoimmune disease and that is struggling. If there is anything I can do to help with advice, talk about beneficial Complementary therapy treatments or even just offer a chat and a cuppa, please don't hesitate to get in touch ❀️

Slightly shorter day in the clinic today which isint a bad thing as it let's me get an early dog walk done πŸ•πŸ•β€πŸ¦Ί...however this will be In the rain by the looks of it β˜” πŸ˜…

I just wanted to share my first clients treatment with you. She came to me 3 days ago with what she was told was a frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capulitis which is characterised by pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint.

So off to work I go πŸ™ŒπŸ’† The client presented firstly with an inability to move her neck, shoulder and arm, so it was difficult to do a range of motion to identify what area was the concern, so I done a little fascia release which helped release the clients superficial layer of fascia, that lies on top of all our muscles.

This then showed an area to the bottom of her scapula which was tight and aggravated.

I then treated their neck and arm ...and then things become clear πŸ€”πŸ’•.

Although the clients deltoid was also very tight, the area causing the client most concern was to the back of their upper arm and to the back of their armpit. So conclusion from the treatment plan which took 2 sessions..

It was the muscle called the Teres Major that was causing all the grief! Not the joint capsule of the shoulder,πŸ₯³ and releasing that muscle helped release the surrounding muscles that were trying to protect. The client is now able to have the use of her neck and arm again, and their pain level has gone from a 8 to a 3 πŸ’•

I wanted to share this because before we think the worst of our bodies, let's get our muscles checked over first ❀️

Coming up to the last client of the day 😁 and the treatment plan for this gentlemen includes dealing with the superficial Thoracolumbar Aponeurosis and the muscles surrounding it.

A broad flat diamond shaped tendon which stretches across the posterior thorax and lumbar regions. It is an anchor for several muscles in the thorax and hips which means its attachment points are a common source of trigger points often causing debilitating pain and discomfort in the lower back, hips and often the legs aswell.

So I was asked today if I do a normal massage πŸ’†β€β™€οΈ

The answer of course is Yes !! πŸ₯³
However the majority of my clients initially have come to me with chronic pain from a condition, and my job is to help alleviate this pain so my clients can then come for a treatment of maintenence and relaxation 😌

I also feel that it's imperative that clients are educated and when they hear phrases such as sciatica, frozen sholder or rotator cuff , that they don't panic and think that they have very few options in returning to full function and strength again πŸ’ͺπŸ’•

So yes , if you would like a relaxing massage...I'm your therapist 😊 but I also πŸ’― % love helping those in pain πŸ’–

Massage is such a powerful tool which is non invasive with no side effects and numerous benefits on your mental and physical health.

πŸ’œ Be part of the massage tribe 😌 and rebalance your vibe πŸ’œ

Well it's official!!! I've finished my degree and passed it with a 2.1 πŸ™Œ πŸ₯³

Thank you to all my clients who took part in the study and helped me so much in understanding the complexity of cerebral palsy . You are all the most beautiful of souls and I absolutely loved working alongside you all 🧑

16/03/2020

To all my dear clients.

You will be aware of the increasing amount of media coverage surrounding the COVID-19 (corona virus), which has now been recorded in Scotland.

After a weekend of deep thought, guidance and advice from Cnhc, CHP and fellow therapists, I have with a very heavy heart decided to close my clinic to clients until further notice. This also includes my visits to clients homes, residential homes and hospitals.

I understand that many of my clients are in physical discomfort however I have many clients with complex conditions, autoimmune diseases and those who are on palliative care, and I have a ethical duty to prevent harm to them.

I also have a duty to my family and as well as young children, I have elderly relatives with various underlying health conditions.

For those who have already had to self isolate and need groceries etc dropped off and do not have anyone to do so, please contact me direct and I will bring them to your door.. Don't be stuck.

As I say this has not been
easy and I hope you are able to understand and support my decision. I also know that I am not alone in praying that it will not be long before we return to normal.

Please take special care over the next few weeks and treat this pandemic with a great deal of caution. Look after loved ones and look out for those who are not as fortunate to have family close by.

With love
Katharine

A little interesting reading πŸ€“πŸ’•

A little interesting reading πŸ€“πŸ’•

Deep Dive: Thorocolumbar Fascia

Of interest to people with complex or non-specific back pain

This is the thorocolumbar fascia. Nearly every major muscle of the back uses this structure as an anchor point.

It is sensible to assume that this structure is at least partially connected to the phenomenon of referred pain in the back.

This structure also makes it clear as to why when we strain a muscle or β€œthrow our back out” (not a great term, backs don’t go out) that it lights up a wide and varied area.

The imprecise nature of the nerves in the back also lead is to an explanation of why we feel pain one place, but often find the source to be elsewhere.

WORKING WITH THIS STRUCTURE

Work slowly. I mean so slow that you feel like you are not moving. The conversation here is a deep whisper. Don’t try to yell at it and grind it out.

The nervous system needs time to reset, let go, adjust, whatever your preferred term is.

We are not talking about adhesions or breaking up tissue. Those are not real things.

Yes, you read that right, adhesions are not a thing. Normal healthy adults do not have tissues that suddenly decide to bind together.

As for breaking down scar tissue (or any tissue) that’s also a solid no. If you were able to apply that that amount of pressure the skin would break down too (it’s connective tissue).

Surgery and disease processes can bring cause adhesions, but that’s a whole other story.

Deep Anatomy Dive:
.
The thoracolumbar fascia is a TOUGH fibrous sheet of connective tissue formed by longitudinal and transverse fibers that bridge the aponeuroses of internal oblique and transversalis, costal angles and iliac crest laterally, to the vertebral column and sacrum medially. In doing so, they cover the paravertebral muscles.

It is made up of three layers, anterior, middle, and posterior. The anterior and middle layers insert onto the transverse processes of the vertebral column while the posterior layer inserts onto the tips of the spinous processes, hence it is indirectly continuous with the interspinous ligaments.

The anterior layer is the thinnest and the posterior layer is the thickest. Two spaces are formed between these three layers of the fascia.

Psoas major lies anterior to the anterior layer, with the anterior fascia of this muscle being continuous with the vertebral body and thus the anterior longitudinal ligament.

Between the anterior and middle layer lies the quadratus lumborum muscle.

The erector spinae muscles and the transversospinales muscles are then enclosed between the middle and posterior layers.

Various superficial muscle layers on the posterior thorax and abdomen then arise from the posterior layer. These primarily include latissimus dorsi and serratus posterior inferior.

Got questions? Leave them in the comments.
