Services Available – Core stability, pelvic floor & pilates classes!
Thank you to all who attended my recent Women’s Health seminar on the 27/5/17 at the Centro Mar y Salud. I was thrilled so many of you turned up and that we were able to comfortably discuss very sensitive concerns. I hope you learned a lot not only about pelvic health, how to prevent problems and/or improve your situation if you already have problems, but also about the importance of other issues such as regular smear tests and how and when to check your breasts.
As mentioned in the seminar, I am starting up a new exercise class where we will focus on the pelvic floor and the core stability muscles around your spine and abdomen. It will be a mixture of pilates and pelvic floor exercises- a pelvi-lates so to speak- and will be suitable for anyone with pre-existing back problems, pelvic floor issues and generally any patients with poor muscle strength around the abdomen, spine and/or pelvic area. And the classes are for both men and women!
A strong core is essential for stabilising and protecting your spine, will help prevent injuries, improve back pain, bladder control and posture. Another benefit is a flatter stomach, which is great news now that the bikini/swimming trunk season has arrived!
Classes will run for 6 weeks every Friday at 10.15-11.00 am
We will initially run 6 sessions starting Friday 16/6/2017 – Friday 21/7/17.
Centro Mar y Salud, Paseo Maritimo 4, El Morche.
Classes cost €10 per session, but if you sign up for the 6 sessions, you only pay €50.
Please confirm attendance on:
In person at the clinic, via my Facebook page “Axarquia Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation”, or on 95253 2065 or 646 860 411.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

Yes, another well deserved accolade for Warren!
He had my motorhome for a couple of days and I didn’t recognise on its return! Friends thought I had bought a ‘new one’!
Warren is a true professional and very modest about his work, saying ‘I am only as good as my last job’!
The finish he achieved on the paintwork, lights, windows and bumper was outstanding and I am ready for my summer travels.
Thank you Warren!
He can be contacted on 618346098 – signed Jo
Recommendation Needed – plate hangers
I am looking for some small plate hangers
(the metal and spring variety for hanging ordinary plates on the wall,

I have seen them on Amazon but they would be relatively expensive

the concept of what I am searching for.
Any Digamites out there that can help me that may have come across
them here? I am in the Torrox area.
