I am Claire Kelly, owner of CK Therapy. I began my journey in health and wellbeing therpaies in 2012, initially focusing on Massage Therapies, and over time expanding into other areas that I felt would benefit my clients most, as well as following my own passions.
When you work in health and fitness industries I think it is important that not only you practice what you preach, but that you have a genuine, personal interest in what you are doing. I like to keep active, and as a marathoner I have learned (sometimes the hard way) the importance of taking care of ourselves in order to stay injury free. It is this experience and knowledge that I bring to my clinic. As a mother of three I know there are elements of my experiences of pregnancies, and returning to fitness after each birth that I can use when working with my clients, and I love this. It is so important to me that each woman gets the care and correct advice during these times of her life.
I network with other health professionals; yoga instructors, hypno-birth experts, maternity reflexologists for instance, all of whom can fill in the blanks where I cannot. I think this is so valuable to the pregnant client, to have a full client centric approach to their health.
I have a special interest in the recovery of clients too, helping them address the issues that often are seen as “normal” after pregnancy, frequently arising from a weak pelvic floor, muscle damage and so forth. I am delighted to offer these Holistic Core Restore® classes. These will run in six week blocks and are based around the repair and strengthening of the body that will help mothers (however postnatal they are) to regain strength in the whole of the core. I am very excited by this and I know that this is an area that will help many women regardless of how post-natal they are.
"I began running marathons just before I fell pregnant with my first son in 2010, and have carried on ever since then. Last year I ran 12 marathons in 12 months for MND Scotland and this year as well as a few marathons and ultramarathons in the diary I am looking forward to raising more funds for my charity with 12 marathons in 1 month. I have always been a firm believer in self care, and making sure that whatever you do, make sure that you do it right! By strength work, stretching, eating well and drinking right we can all achieve goals, marathons or dancing or simply just enjoying life. Whatever it is you want to do you need to get the building blocks right. Using and applying this philosophy in my own life and training I have been able to return to my sport within a relatively short space of time after each of my sons, and this is a big reason why I am so driven to help my clients, in whatever capacity I can, because I know that if we do our homework and take care of our bodies there is no reason why we cannot get back to doing whatever it is we love."
