However, it is also a busy city where many inhabitants burn the candle at both ends – active lifestyles, high pressured jobs, lots of travel and with the invention of smart phones we’re all switched on 7 days a week. Even tiredness and poor diet can be stresses on the mind and body. Stress is normal, it’s not successful but it is normal – it’s part of life.

Why run a marathon? – how did it all started for Fulham Massage & Wellness Managing Director, Agata

The idea of running a marathon was at the back of my head for a long time. I used to think that running 26miles was just for crazy people but over time and hearing inspiring stories from my clients - the seed got planted. I was admiring those who managed to cross the finish line because it was always a symbol – of determination, strong will power and persuasion. And an enormous sense of achievement! I began to want it! This desire, although noticeable, wasn’t enough to take any actions for years. Eventually I signed up for a London marathon 2015 with a high hope that I won’t get a place. And I didn’t! I remember telling myself it was a universe’s way of saying “it’s not for you”. Relieved I don’t have to commit to a long training, I quickly realised I also felt a pinch of disappointment which I couldn’t understand.

Common office injuries and pains

In this article we are going to look at office injuries and discuss why we experience them and what we can do to remedy them. With so many of us having desk bound jobs it’slifestyle little surprise that this way of working has had a major impact on humans and our physical state.

Since the late twentieth century most jobs have migrated to the more sedentary office routine, especially in London and Fulham where many people now experience repetitive strain and office caused pains.
