Touch Rugby Worldcup 2011

Posted on June 27, 2011 at 4:42 PM Comments comments ()
Between 22.06.11 and 26.06.11 I took part in Touch Rugby Worldcup 2011 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Together with 7 other therapists we spent 5 days helping top Touch Rugby players from all over the world with their injuries. It was very hard work, and the weather was often tricky but I enjoyed it much. I met many new friends, learned some new techniques and gained a lot of priceless experience as well as made some financial gains.
I would like to thanks Mark Rutherford for organizing everything and inviting me there. I would also like to say big thank you to all other therapists who worked along side for being supportive, patient with me and for laughing at my often not so funny jokes.
I would like to congratulate New Zealand  Mix Team, with whom I have honored to work, for winning the competition. Big thanks are going to team  of France and Italy, whom we treated regularly and to all the others who came to our tent.

The general benefits of therapeutic massage

Posted on May 30, 2011 at 7:55 AM Comments comments ()
Massage manipulations can be applied in a systematic approach or plan to influence conditions that affect physical function.
Skeletal muscles respond with direct biomechanical effects. Within this response, biomechanical effects encourage or produce reflex reactions that involve the nervous system and chemical responses. A variety of responses are reached at many levels. The nervous system can respond through the reflex arc, secretion of endorphins and other neural chemicals, and the release of histamine and other cellular secretions. The release of chemicals substances affects a structure or system of the body directly or indirectly. 
The foundation for the benefits of massage therapy is understanding the nature of effects on circulation, elimination, and nervous system control. Circulation is primarily improved by direct biomechanical responses to manipulations. A secondary benefit is obtained through reflex responses encouraging chemical secretion, which affects nervous system control.
Circulation improvement occurs as nutrients, oxygen, and arterial blood components are delivered to the local area being manipulated or are distributed to the general circulation. The benefit of circulatory improvement is the secondary effect of improved filtration and elimination of carbon dioxide, metabolites, and biochemical  byproducts that are transported in  the venous blood, improved circulation, with its ability to affect elimination, generally enhances the abilities of the structures to benefit and support normal function. When nutrition is improved and elimination enhanced, the structures of localized areas, tissues and systems are given the opportunity to maximize the potential for normal function. 
Massage manipulations directly benefit restrictions to muscle tissue function. Mechanical benefits and reflex responses combine to help the muscular soft tissues respond through circulation improvement and elimination of byproducts. Mechanical effects on muscular tissues include influence on the stretching of the muscles fibers and changes in connective tissue structures. The reflex effects encourage relaxation of the tissues through change in motor nerve output and chemical secretions.
Clients receiving massage therapy report a variety of sensations, emotions, feelings and mental perceptions, that are subjective, difficult to measure, and unique to the individual.
Therapeutic massage benefits conditions by encouraging the body through the phases involved in rehabilitation, restoration, and normalization of anatomic and physiologic function and ability. Psychological benefits occur subjectively, according to the individual in response to therapy with secondary effects that influence sensation and pain perception. Objective and subjective result of therapy combine to create individual responses that affect the desired health outcome.

London Marathon
Great news for me. As some of you might have already known, I have been planing  to volunteer as massage therapist  at London Marathon this year. I have just secured my place with Christian Aid charity. I will take care of their 25 athletes, after they finish competition. I volunteered at London Marathon 2 years ago as a student, but this time I will be there by my own, so I am really excited. Hopefully, some of those athletes will become my regular clients.
I know some of you are preparing to run Marathon this year. There is a lot of hard work ahead of you, but as I have been told by those who did it- it is worth the effort, as the atmosphere there is amazing. If you need any help with all those awful injuries that are slowing you down, let me know. I will be more than happy to help.

Fev words about Your therapist.

Posted on February 20, 2011 at 1:19 PM Comments comments ()
Welcome to my blog.
I will write a little bit about myself so You could get to know me better.
I came to England from Poland in 2004 after finishing Masters Degree in Economy at local University. I worked in many different places and gained a lot of life experience. In a meantime I continued to develop my skills by doing some vocational courses. In 2008 I did YMCA Gym Instructor course at Westminster College. It was there where I heard about NLSSM (North London School of Sports Massage). I graduated NlSSM in 2010. It was really demanding, but also very rewarding course. After that I had to consider what to do next. I decided to open mobile clinic (as this is still a niche on the market) so people can experience professional massages at comfort of their own homes. At the begging of 2011 Health and Relax was born.
So far business is going good. I began advertising campaign and more and more people start talking about Health and Relax. You can find me on,,,, and  I hope soon You will also join the growing number of my satisfied clients. See You then!
