037 Jurmaine Health Origins
Find out our humble beginnings of our co-founders, Dr Judy Tang and Dr Shermain Wong, at Jurmaine Health clinic.  We started from ground up, bootstrapped and almost clueless a decade ago. We did not know what we were getting into! What about toilet rolls and ply? We are also experts in cooking eggs.  Jurmaine Health Body and Jurmaine Health Brain started off as 2 separate departments. Fast forward a decade now, we are working much closer. For our 10-year anniversary, we will also be launching whiplash and concussion programs in effort to work more holistically as a clinic. Listen to this podcast to hear some of our nuances on how we begun our journey.  We are celebrating our 10 years' anniversary on the 20th July Saturday. We are putting on a show, with a colourful dance and some crackers. See you there! (RSVP is required).

022 Tension
Do you have space for recovery?  Your body is like a pulley system. One muscle pulls, the other pulls. When one is held for a particular position for too long, there is compensation.  Tension can apply to emotions, the mind and the body. Do you have unresolved trauma? When unresolved, it breaks the body down in many ways including the immune system, athletic performance etc.  Find out more on this podcast. Look out for the Embodied Recovery sessions where we give you tips on how to manage tension.

021 Low back pain part 1
Do you understand your system? Just because you have tight lats, it does not necessarily mean you should 'tenderise' your lats with a foam roller (with teeth). Are you rolling yourself into back pain? Are you a piece of meat? Sometimes we prefer a bread pin roll!  If you do high volume activity - you will lose body awareness more easily. After 9 shopping mall massages sessions, why do you expect your clinician to fix you in 1 session?
