During lockdown, a lot of us a working from home, perhaps with some… 'not so ideal' work set-ups. We may also have been inspired to take up more exercise as well.
We asked our friend Suzi Nevell, head-physiotherapist and founder of Sweet7 in Auckland to guide us through some simple, at-home stretches and exercises we can be doing to support the management and recovery from these lifestyle changes.
Meet Suzi Nevell
Suzi’s 31-year professional career as a physiotherapist describes not only her extraordinary qualifications and experience, but also the founding philosophy behind Sweet7’s unique practice. After some years touring the world with a variety of high performance athletes and sports teams, and becoming New Zealand’s Women’s Trampoline Champion, Suzi moved to the United States.
While there, she was invited by Paul Chek to join the CHEK Institute’s senior teaching staff in San Diego. Over the course of the next 16 years, she absorbed Paul’s teachings on blending physical, nutritional, mental, emotional and spiritual coaching into a coaching model for health.
The fundamentals go far beyond the physical and look at the impact of food, lifestyle and exercise on pain, injury, general health and vitality and, in short, how to stay younger and live longer. It’s a broader approach to assessing injuries, since it looks at the person and their lifestyle; and it views the body as a series of interdependent working systems where the health of one system directly impacts the health of another.
Today, Suzi brings all her experience, professional expertise and philosophies on life, health and wellbeing, for the benefit of Sweet7’s clients.
