Gentle summer days...

Dear Chandos Friends

As August almost curls up it's toes and there's a mild half-hearted drizzle outside our reception window, I do hope you are all feeling refreshed and relaxed from a lovely summer break, wherever you've been. Patients have been drifting in with summer skin and summer tales, new places discovered, inspiring books read, and there's a gentleness to these last days before school terms fire back up again.

From the beginning of September we will be back to our full quota of osteopaths, plus our complimentary therapists, and our lovely new holistic massage practioner Emilie. As always, ring Deb or Pat on reception whatever your requirements. Sadly we will be saying goodbye to Mel (acupuncture and chinese herbs) as she is leaving us to further her studies. She has been an extraordinary asset to the Chandos Clinic and we all wish her well. Her final day with us will be Monday 5th Sept, for her existing clients only.

In the meantime, here is an interesting article from The Guardian; if we were in any doubt before, isn't life amazing!

Gut health!

Most of us know that "We are what we eat!" and that eating a nutritionally rich and diverse diet brings about innumerable health benefits. This article from The Guardian puts even more weight behind the importance of keeping our guts in tip-top condition (then hopefully none of us will need a poo transplant!)

A (tree)top night's sleep!

For so many of us, getting a decent night's sleep is a thing we can only dream of (wide awake). I've blogged in the past about the perils of artificial light and stimuli before bedtime, but this is a fascinating article from The Guardian about a new concept in bed design.
