I have been a keen sportsman since my childhood, playing football and running cross country at County level. I progressed from Half Marathons, Marathons, 30km Races, on to Triathlon in 2009. Learning how to front crawl opened up a fantastic new sport to me, and it saw me get on a bike for the first time in over 30 years. I gradually increased the distance from Sprint, Standard, Middle Distance and then competed in two Long Distance events (3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42km run). I’ve competed twice in the Alpe D’Huez short distance event, and I can say that this has been my favourite challenge to date.

Massage and Stretching for Omohyoid and Scalenes with Nerve Adhesion – Sometimes the Supra Clavicular Nerves will become bound by fascia with the muscle tissue of the Scalenes and the Omohyoid.
Breaking down adhesions in the Coracobrachialis with fixed arm Elbow Rotations – If you have trouble getting the palm of your hand behind your back then your tendons are probably tight at the front of your shoulder.
2 Hip Flexor Stretches – Hip Flexors can get tight if you sit for long periods at work or if you drive for a living. Tight hip flexors inhibit hip extension, and can cause the pelvis to go into an anterior tilt.
Adductor, Gracilis, Sartorius, Vastus Medialis and Inside of Thigh roller stretches – If you suffer with fascial adhesions in your adductor muscles, gracilis, vastus medialis, sartorius, semimembranosus or semitendinosus muscles, then try some side lying stretches using a foam roller (or larger massage ball).
3 Types of Calf and Achilles Tendon Stretch – Taking the toes into dorsi flexion will accentuate the calf stretch, lengthening the achilles tendon, breaking down adhesions and realigning muscle fibres.
I received treatment from Richard for plantar fasciitis - he is professional, informative & very friendly. He also followed up my treatment with self help excercises. Thanks to Richard I'm now pain free!!
