Anxiety/ Depression

“Supporting someone suffering with Anxiety always starts with Listening, not Fixing”

The last 3 months have been really strange, uncertain times for so many us, having to stay at home, living in self isolation for several weeks, not knowing when or if we would ever return to living as we use to back in the days before this Pandemic started.
Spare a thought then for all those who were suffering with Anxiety/ Depression during this time.
Having to stay at home alone is never good for someone suffering with Anxiety/ Depression.
They need to have people around them, helping to give them support. Social interaction is so important for people with mental health issues.
So just imagine having to spend so many weeks, even months spent sometimes in isolation with all that fear and uncertainty,
Not having anyone to turn to for help or support would really not have been good for anyone suffering with mental health condtions. While there was, I glad to say some help available to help people suffering with stress/ anxiety online during those dark times , which would have greatly helped so many people, while it is wonderful to have that help online,
it is to me, not the same as having someone physically present to be able to really listen and offer support to the person who is suffering with Anxiety or Depression.
Now at least with so many restrictions having been lifted, people who need help can now after so many months, start to get the help they need..
There are so many wonderful therapies available that can really help people suffering with mental health issues.
I love to help people suffering with anxiety using a beautiful gentle theraphy called Reiki.
I find its it is a wonderful gentle treatment that allows the person to fully relax in a deep state of total calmness, always in a safe peaceful place.
Once they are in this safe place they soon begin to talk about their issues or concerns. I make sure to always listen attentively with kindness and compassion, and most importantly I make sure never to be judgemental.
Almost as soon as they start to share with me, their worries and concerns, their levels of anxiety almost immediately are greatly reduced.
There is always help out there, there is never a need to suffer anxiety/ depression alone.

Living with Plantar Pain, a real Nightmare.

Anyone suffering with Plantar Pain will tell you about how they feel that excruciating pain as they take those dreaded first steps of the day.
That horrible feeling, as if they have just stepped on a small sharp stone, , that discomfort can last for several minutes until the ligaments, tendons and muscles eventually warm up and then eventually that pain may start to ease a little.
In some cases though it doesn’t ease up at all and remains very painful throughout the day.
That horrible sharp pain can prevent people from walking or even standing on their feet for long periods .More extreme activites such as running become simply impossible to do.
While Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common condtions of plantar foot pain, there are other condtions that can cause pain in the sole of the foot, eg heel spurs, ligament and tendon tears/ strains, so it is most inportant to have the injury properally assessed and treated .
It’s is so important to have any issues with the feet treated in the early stages, when left untreated they may even become serious complicated injuries that will take longer to heal and can also even lead to futher issues with the calf muscles and even with the knee and hip joints, due to over compensation when walking in great pain and discomfort.
I always strongly advice people to have plantar pain treated as soon as possible, there is never any need to have to continue to struggle daily with foot pain. There are some wonderful treatments now available to help treat foot pain.
I use several effective modalites in my treatment of plantar pain, one of the most effective therapies I love use, is suction cupping with vaccum I find this treatment is really effective in helping to reduce inflamation in the plantar tendon, an area that is very often really tender and even sometimes swollen.
It allows increased blood flow in the area, most important to allow healing to begin.
For the first time in about 25 years i have myself been suffering for several weeks with Plantar Fasciitis, so I have been struggling with pain, taken those dreaded first steps in the morning. I had at first tired to continue to run every day on grass but that pain was simply excruciating, it was agony after i had finished the run. So i had to do what most runners hate to do, take time off.
I was so happy when the lockdown was lifted and i was finally able to have my injury treated by my sports therapist Grace Mc Namee in Celbridge, thank you Grace for your wonderful treatments and for your patience with me, and i have to say i am now begining to feel less pain and discomfort now when i walk, so i hope that pretty soon i can start to run again, pain free.
There is no need to continue suffering with Plantar Pain, have it treated.
