Break the aching cycle of biking – Bike Week 2012

Dust off your helmet and get out your cycling gear as this week is National Bike Week!

Sponsored by Samsung, Bike Week is the UK’s biggest mass participation cycling occasion with events up and down the country.

From 16th – 24th June, over half a million people will take part in events for all abilities; from families, schools and companies, to seasoned cyclists and those who have never cycled before.

You can find a Samsung Bike Week event near you by using the Event Search Tool.

However, be prepared for the stiff calves and aching thighs in the morning.

Even an Olympic-style stretch beforehand doesn’t always prevent those next-day pangs that suppress any kind of movement.

The Bowen Technique works to heal sporting injuries and muscular problems in an extremely gentle but effective way.

Bowen is a natural, drug-free, non-invasive, complementary therapy that 'asks' the body to recognise the ailment and make the changes it requires as opposed to ‘forcing’ the body change.

During the 30-60 minute treatment, the Bowen practitioner makes small, rolling, movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points on the body, using only the amount of pressure appropriate for that individual.

No hard-tissue manipulation or force is needed or used.

Between each set of moves, the body is allowed to rest for a few minutes, to allow it to absorb the information it has received and initiate the healing process.
