I have been working very hard on an exciting and exclusive new project designed to help you, the dog groomer, look after your best asset, you!
Over the passed few months, I have teamed up with two lovely ladies, from Space to Move, Jules and Louise to put together an exclusive 5 part series, designed to demonstrate simple and relaxing movements to help relieve tension, increase flexibility and build up strength in your fingers, hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck and head.
So why have I done this?
Everyday, you as a dog groomer, spend your time ensuring that your fur clients are loved and looked after whilst in your care. But what about you?
As a dog groomer, your all body performs growling tasks every day. Sometimes you hardly notice the odd positions you find your self in in order to create that wonderful finish, or picking up a dog or bending awkwardly. These repetitive motions over time, can help towards you feeling stiff, sore and weak.
In our first series, we have concentrated on the upper body to include your fingers, hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck and head. These are areas that are worked the hardest, yet they tend to be neglected and as a result can have a negative impact on your daily life. The movements demonstrated in each part, are there to help you limit these aches and pains and over time, after continual practice, you may find that there is less tension and stiffness and more strength, range of motion and flexibility.
Our first series, 'Yoga for Dog Groomers!' will be released on the Abbfabb Grooming Scissors Facebook page, on the Abbfabb Grooming Scissors Youtube and you can watch each part in the 'What about you, the Dog Groomer?' page on my website.
I really hope you enjoy using our exclusive series and if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Jules/ Louise.
Please note: These movements are designed to help stiffness and soreness you may be experiencing. Neither myself, Jules or Louise are medical professionals and if you are experiencing pain, be always seek advice from your medical professional.
