I've decided to start this blog because I'm always getting asked by my clients and others about how their bodies work. Most of us have only the vaguest notion of our anatomy and physiology so I'll try and do my bit here to share what I know.
Now, I'm a massage and Bowen therapist, not a brain surgeon so what I write about is pretty basic stuff like what happens when you tear a muscle or why a sprained ankle on one side of your body can lead to lower back pain on the other side.
I'm happy to publish comments on my blog entries and I welcome suggestions for new topics. But please accept that I can't enter into correspondence about individual problems: I'm not qualified to make diagnoses and I don't think a blog is the right place to be offering specific health advice.
But the body is deeper than the soul and its secrets inscrutable.
