Our team have put together their top gift ideas for the Christmas season. If you’re looking for gift inspiration, take a look at what the team suggest!
Physio, Kim, recommends the omni massage roller as a perfect Christmas gift. This is one of our best sellers. This massage roller has a comfortable grip and is so easy to use. It reduces stress and fatigue on fingers, hands and elbows, whilst being used to ease away aches, pains or strains. It can be used directly over clothing or on bare skin and even with massage oil. Available in a range of colours, this perfect Christmas gift is just £17.99.
Cameron, our Sports Massage Therapist, thinks a gift voucher is a perfect Christmas gift. These can be bought for any amount – perfect for a sports massage, small group Pilates, Pilates course or even a physiotherapy assessment for someone who has an ongoing niggle they should really get sorted! It’s a great way to inspire someone to invest in their health and wellbeing.
Roz’s top Christmas Gift is the MB1 massage ball. Another great way to ease aches, pains and areas of tension, the MB1 is a fab portable alternative to a foam roller. It’s light weight, so brilliant to pop in your bag, and really durable. Perfect for any sports person to take to events or to kept home if you need to work off some tension. The MB1 ball is £13.99 and we also stock a larger MB5 ball for those bigger muscle areas.
Hugo recommends one of our reusable heat packs. These come in a range of sizes, designed for different parts of the body. You pop them in the microwave and they give off a gentle heating effect. Great for necks and backs that tend to stiffen up. The shoulder heat pack is £24.99, neck £17.99 and body wrap £17.99.
Sports Therapist Tom’s top gift choice is one of our trigger point grid rollers. We have carefully selected the best foam rollers we could find (many won’t last and don’t provide the best results). The Trigger Point Grid Rollers are brilliant – an essential for anyone who runs, exercises or takes part in sports. The grid roller comes in green, black, orange and pink and costs £39.99.
Francesca, one of our Sports Therapists & Pilates Instructors recommends the special Pilates socks. Available in black, turquoise & white, they have a special grip sole, and really help in Pilates classes. So if you have a Pilates lover on your gift list – this is a great idea! Just £9.99.
Our Clinical Director Paul, recommends custom made orthotics as a gift. They come in at £350 but are well worth the investment if a loved one suffers from long term or recurrent injures, aches or pains or a longstanding condition such as arthritis. You are welcome to book in a free orthotics consultation, just to see whether orthotics are the right way to go, before committing to a purchase.
