Remember....You do not have to live with pain...its’ the body’s way of telling you there is a problem...! We may be able to help you!!
What have we been up to at Ocean Therapy?
Well it’s been a busy few months for us all here at Ocean Therapy. I guess for myself as the company director I can relax a little after just passing my Diploma in Orthopaedic acupuncture which has you can expect as kept me very busy for the last year. (Phew !!!!) This course involved monthly trips to West London where I completed my theory and practical applications of the course studying the acupuncture meridian systems, TCM pathogenesis (that stands for Traditional Chinese Medicine), pathology and principles of diagnosis and treatment. This qualification has deepened by existing TCM knowledge and needling techniques from a course I completed in 4 years ago. I am now able to pass on
this exciting knowledge to my patients and can specialize in ortheopeadic acupuncture for many varied conditions ranging from chronic Osteo Arthritis, niggling shin splints, low back pain and trauma injuries as soon as they occur!! I will be applying these needling techniques alongside my existing soft tissue techniques, but don’t be surprised when I offer other Chinese medicine modalities such as Moxa, Cupping and heat treatment, all of which will be tailored to your individual needs and concerns. This qualification entitles me to be recognized by the professional regulatory body ‘The Acupuncture Society’, so you can be safely assured of the very possible highest standards of Acupuncture use at Ocean Therapy.
have had the opportunity to use these newly acquired skills on one of our chosen sponsored clients for the last few months, the very lovely Kate Mason....am sure some of you may be very familiar of her amazing achievements to date that she has completed, including ......the marathon De Sables, competing in Morocco and Peru, a solo English Channel swim and various long distance swims. Kate is going to attempt the prestigious Enduroman ‘Arch to Arc’ this coming September, this is a very tough ultra-distance triathlon, it starts with an 87- mile run from London’s marble arch to Dover, followed by the ardiuos cross channel swim (at the shortest distance 21miles) to the French coast, finishing with a 180-mile bike ride from Calais to the Arc de Triumph in Paris. Only 37 athletes in the history of the challenge have completed the challenge. To help her on her way Ocean Therapy have teamed up with Kate to provide regular sports therapy intervention, support, advice and sponsorship. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Kate the very best of luck and good weather for her challenge later this summer.

We have also teamed up with Weymouth St. Paul’s Harriers & Athletics club, offering sponsorship to help supports their 6k & 10 k forest run, to be held on the 14th July 2019 in Moreton Dorset.
A 10k run on a mixture of typical forest tracks and woodland paths. The last kilometre is on a quiet country road. Runners will come across sweeping wide tracks and rough and undulating terrain, trees in the middle of the course and tree roots underfoot. This will call for good eye to foot coordination. If it has been raining there may be some muddy ground to contend with. There are two stiles to cross and a stream to cross as well.
The event is in memory of Phil Carpenter and Bonnie Christopher and to raise money for Dorset County Hospital Chemotherapy Appeal and ‘Bonnie’s Last Wish for Working Donkeys’
Sounds like a great off road challenge in a lovely part of our world, why not get those running shoes on and help their chosen charities, for further details and registration check the following website: https://wsphandac.fullonsport.com or the Weymouth SPH Athletics Club website.
