Now it’s back to business!
After a very exciting night under the floodlights yesterday, it is back to my clinic for the next couple of days before returning to Oxford Utd on Friday to help the team physically prepare for Saturday's league game.
It is always a highlight to share the experience of a large occasion with Oxford Utd, and yesterday was no exception. To see the players all give 100% on the pitch over 120 mins is so rewarding for the medical team, and although the FA Cup run was a nice distraction, it is back to business and concentrate on the league and our aim of promotion this season.
Due to Friday's extra session with Oxford Utd, and I am also attending an athletics meeting on Saturday, mean that my clinic spaces are more limited than usual this week, so please let me know asap if you would like to book an appt.
With My Headington Youth U16’s Football Team
I am a very proud coach & shirt sponsor of Headington Youth U16's Football Team and seeing them win their quarter final against a Witney A League team 3-1 to progress to the semi final of the Oxfordshire FA Youth Cup is one of those days where all the time, money and stress of organising & sponsoring a youth sports team pays off.
I am so lucky to have a team made up from players who enjoy playing alongside their team mates win, lose or draw!

2019 Midwifery Lecture for Oxford Brookes University Midwifery Students
I was honoured to be invited back to Oxford Brookes University to deliver my 'Birthing Positions for Midwives' lecture and workshop for the 3rd year midwifery students.
This was designed by me last year to express the importance of keeping an aligned posture whilst working as a midwife to prevent back pain caused by the various positions midwives work in just prior to graduating and starting on their long and rewarding careers.

Players Wanted for Headington Youth U16's Football Team
I have been a youth football coach for over 10 years and I am currently managing the Headington Youth U16's football team where I am looking for at least 3 more players to help increase our friendly squad in preparation for the coming season.
We train 6.30pm - 8pm on Friday in Risinghurst where we will also play our Sunday league games in the Oxford Mail Youth League.
If you are a boy or girl footballer who will be in school year 11 for 2019/2020 and want to enjoy playing in a friendly and supportive team with the emphasis on supportive team work and not just 'winning at all costs' and with the playing time shared equally throughout the team please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org / mob. 07905808612
My U11's were voted the Oxfordshire FA Respect Team of the Year (out of over 400 teams) a few years ago and I still apply the same principles of fair play and respect with my team today, so if you just want to enjoy your football in a non pressurised environment then Headington Youth U16's is for you!
Austrian Ironman Medal
Helping my clients to achieve their goals.
It is always wonderful to see my clients achieve their specific goals and today was no exception.
Someone I have been treating to prepare for their first Ironman came in to thank me as they completed the Austrian Ironman under their target time of a very respectful 14 hours with their well earned medal and also to give me a present of Pumpkin oil as a gesture of their appreciation which was so thoughtful and very appreciated.
I am privileged to be able to share in many of my client's journeys and to help them achieve their goals, whether it is winning a medal, completing a race, recovering from an injury or living without postural pain and when they send me a 'finishing line selfie' or pop in to say thanks is just the icing on the cake!
