19 Dec 2014 Amatsu Therapy Sessions

Alex Mosco is an Amatsu Therapy Practitioner, martial artist, climber, cyclist and walker. He is well well aware of the need for good physical and mental health to function effectively in all these sports. Treating the body globally rather than just the symptoms of an injury is intrinsic to Amatsu, and with overall balance the body is able to maintain health naturally.

Alex discovered the Japanese system of Amatsu Therapy via martial arts. Amatsu Therapy applies soft-tissue mobilisation techniques to relieve restrictions in muscles, tendons, fascia, and ligaments. These releases re-pattern muscles, improving joint function, ranges of movement and treat the whole body. Treatment comprises hands-on physical manipulation suitable for all ages, genders and levels of mobility and can be used preventatively or post-injury.

By releasing soft tissue restrictions conditions ranging from sports injuries, back pain, shoulder issues, sciatic complaints, ankle and knee problems and musculoskeletal postural and mobility dysfunctions can be treated


Balance approx 1 hour: £35

22 Dec 2014 Evolv Winter Bouldering Ladder

The Climbing Works Winter bouldering competition series is having a bit of makeover this year. Out goes the 'one night only' competition format and in comes a bouldering ladder format. We will be setting problems as normal on the Berghaus Competition wall but you will have a longer time to try them and be in with a chance to win some prizes from Evolv.

The Evolv Works Bouldering Ladder (Evolv WoBL) will begin on Thursday 4th December at 6pm. You will then have to Monday 22nd Dec to test yourself on these problems and hand in a scorecard for your chance to win some great prizes from Evolv.

Summary of the competition rules are:

- 2 Rounds only: 4th Dec and Jan 8th.

 - Pick up a scorecard from reception for £2

- Score yourself on the problems on the Berghaus Competition wall - 15 points for a flash, 10 points for any go after that (If we find anyone cheating they will be barred from The Climbing Works for a year).

- There will be 20 problems set on the first date of each comp and then 10 more set 11 days later. You then have a week from the 2nd set to get your scorecards back in.
