The Re­cov­ery Pack­age, Como Shamb­hala Ur­ban Es­cape

Shape (Singapore) - - Get Fit News -

Well­ness cen­tre Como Shamb­hala Ur­ban Es­cape re­cently launched a range of holis­tic pro­grammes to help ac­tive clients im­prove their sports per­for­mance while treat­ing ex­ist­ing in­juries and pre­vent­ing future ones.

There are four tai­lored sports re­cov­ery pack­ages avail­able, and I had the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence a Re­cov­ery Pack­age based on my needs at that time.

I was run­ning reg­u­larly and had sus­tained a pos­te­rior tib­ial ten­don in­jury (this is the ten­don that con­nects the calf mus­cle to bones on the in­ner foot). The pack­age was de­signed for those suf­fer­ing from a sports in­jury that was dis­rupt­ing their nor­mal train­ing rou­tine.

It in­cluded a con­sul­ta­tion with sports nu­tri­tion­ist Eve Per­sak, a treat­ment by res­i­dent acupunc­tur­ist Mark Ch­ern, and a pi­lates les­son with se­nior teacher Fhe Samia. All ses­sions were done one-on-one.

THE EX­PE­RI­ENCE Eve ex­am­ined my diet closely, and it be­came clear that I wasn’t eat­ing enough protein and com­plex car­bo­hy­drates to sup­port run­ning thrice weekly. She also looked at de­creas­ing my high sugar in­take by sug­gest­ing health­ier snack op­tions such as smoothie pop­si­cles.

Mark did soft tis­sue work and trig­ger point ther­apy around the in­jured ar­eas. There was sig­nif­i­cant re­lief in my calves and feet af­ter the ses­sion.

Lastly, pi­lates with Fhe made me more aware of my bad pos­ture – I tend to slouch. Good body align­ment is im­por­tant as a run­ner.

THE VER­DICT The Re­cov­ery Pack­age serves as a good start­ing point if you want to take a closer look at where you’re at in your fit­ness jour­ney. I ap­pre­ci­ated hav­ing some­one give me fea­si­ble diet changes based on my food pref­er­ences. The ex­perts also shared in­jury pre­ven­tion tips, which I found help­ful. – ZARELDA MARIE GOH E-mail sin­ga­pore@co­mosham­ or call 6304-3552 for more in­for­ma­tion on the sports re­cov­ery pro­grammes.
