The team at Oakville’s Palermo Physio and Wellness Centre would like to wish everyone Happy New Year!
We know the past couple of years have been challenging for everyone. We appreciate your continued trust in our practitioners for your wellness needs. Our Physiotherapists, Chiropodists, Registered Massage Therapists and Yoga Therapist work hard to stay current and provide you with evidence based care.
We want you to know and believe that you are worth the time and energy spent on yourself.
This means attending appointments as well as committing to your home program in whatever way works for you!
It is important to keep the communication lines open with your health care practitioner whether it be a physio (PT), a massage therapist (RMT), a Chiropodist (foot care specialist) or Yoga Therapist. Communicating your goals as well as your expectations is an important part of your care.
It takes 4 weeks of consistent work to build habits. Small but purposeful steps will get you there. A large goal can feel like you are looking up at Mount Everest.
Break your large goal into small steps. Keep the large goal in the back of your mind and focus on the first. Then go from there.
Involve your loved ones to make it easier. If your goal is to move more, but it takes away from daily time, then try including the family. Go for hikes, walks, bike rides, or play at the park! Trade off with your partner with child care, animal care, or household chores. Don’t be afraid to carve out some time that is for you. What a great example to show your loved ones that you are worth it!
Look ahead and schedule yourself in. Many people love having regular massage therapy. Unfortunately time slips away and private benefits are left to the end of the year and it adds stress to try and find and schedule massage services with their favourite practitioner. Try scheduling maintenance appointments at regular intervals in advance. If your schedule changes you can always modify your appointments. Having regular foot care appointments (6-10 weeks apart) booked in and scheduled in your calendar ensures time does not get away from you. It is easier to stay on top of things like foot care and your wellness, than having to play catch-up.
We hope you have a safe and healthy 2022.
Remember, we are here for all of your Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, Foot Care and Yoga Therapy needs.
All the best from our families to you and yours.
