Which way now? Lacking direction….what you need to know….to get results.

Lacking direction? Getting the best out of our body is what we all should be aiming for….where the difficulty lies is how to get there!

We all generally know we should be fitter, healthier, more active, more flexible, lose some weight, tone up, reduce pain, move more freely – whatever our targets are – we know what we want to do or achieve.

What’s missing generally is the how and the right direction to head in to get there.

So picture this.

You’re in your care, sat nav on and the road ahead is beckoning. You plug in your destination (your goal) and hit start.

There are umpteen ways to get from here to there.

Umpteen options on how to go about doing what you do – some take you there quickly and others take a while, some have stop off and detours others are more direct.

Here’s the thing – you doing it yourself is that higglety pigglety way – you may get there, but it will involve a lot of “re routing” a lot of please make legal U turn, a lot of stopping and re setting, a lot of getting so far and feeling you’re gong back wards.

And there is nothing wrong with that at all – if that’s what you’ve signed up for. You know you’re gonna maybe need to call in a mechanic every now and then to patch things up but realistically you’re on this journey solo.

Now if you’re aim is to get from here to there – quickly, with as little stop and start and as directly as you can – well get the guidance required to do that.

That’s where you call out the big guns and GET HELP – that means getting the right info at the right time.

It’s like going on a camping trip to the outback and forgetting your sat phone, extra water, extra tyres…. we all know we need them but think we’ll be fine – until we’re not.

The value of getting the right guidance is priceless.

Yep you pay for that cover – but you have help on hand at the drop of a hat.

Get from A to B- minimal disruption in the most direct route possible in the shortest time possible, with the least hiccups and setbacks possible – all because you know where you’re going, whats’ involved and how long its gonna take you. Everything in the car. help is at hand if you need it.

The back roads and detours are fine too – again – if that’s what you signed up for. You are less prepared, in for the adventure, not sure what will come up, not sure how long help will take to arrive, and if you have to make a detour you can never know how far back you need to trek before you get back on the right road…and again totally ok if that’s what you want to do. Long term though, it costs you more money, more time, more burn out on your car, more frustration and you are generally left with a car that functions but is never quite the same cos you’ve had to do some patch up jobs along the way.

Which describes you best?

I can tell you we get heaps of the second – they’ve tried this and that and finally gone – OK –  give up –  cant their myself or without continually stopping someone for directions – I want you to navigate this and get me to where I want to be from start to finish, or get me a good way along the track so  I can see the end game in sight and take it from there.


Where are you at in that journey?

We can hop in and guide you at any phase – obviously the start point is best – we can get you to you end goal with as little detouring as we can.

If you’re now off the beaten track, well we may need to re visit where you’ve been before and re route a bit to get you around the obstacle but we can get you back on the right road!

A good physio should be able to get you back on track quickly – you should feel you’re doing the right thing with a week or two – any longer and we need to do something else.

So whoever you go to – you should FEEL something is changing and improving – if not we need to re route…. your journey should not be aimless and feel like you’re getting nowhere
