HOW MIGHT YOU KNOW IF YOU’RE EXPERIENCING LONG COVID?

  • Are you finding it hard to focus on tasks that were once easy to complete?

What is Long Covid?

Long Covid is an umbrella term used for the wide range of symptoms affecting hospitalised individuals and those who self-managed at home.

Clinical guidelines for Long Covid describe an illness that refuses to adhere to a limited set of symptoms, with those experiencing Long Covid reporting symptoms ranging from breathlessness and muscle pain to skin rashes, nausea and fatigue.

“The signs and symptoms that develop during or following an infection consistent with Covid-19 which continue for 12 weeks or more and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.”

WORKING TOGETHER TO MANAGE LONG COVID SYMPTOMS:

Recovery from Covid-19 and the multiple related long-term symptoms can be complex and differs from person to person. The varying symptoms often have something in common with other autonomic conditions, and accordingly there are some well researched evidence-based practices that calm the body, soothe the brain and bring balance to the nervous system.

Therapy is a collaborative process of assessing individual needs and carefully tailoring a programme that addresses your symptoms in a way that is effective for you. I work from a client centred approach, using a combination of techniques from Yoga Therapy, functional breathing practices, psychotherapy and neuroscience.

The tools and techniques you learn will go on to form a foundation of practices you can use to establish a daily practice to measurably affect your health and wellbeing.

IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH AND WELLBEING BY:

  • Simple effective practices that change the way we breathe to improve breathlessness, address oxygen deficit and impact nitric oxide levels
  • Improve interception and balance using gentle mindful movement
  • Change the way we relate to thoughts and worries
  • Down regulate the inflammatory response through simple physiological changes
  • Change the way we approach ‘exercise’ using visualisation and safe movement to bring joy and ease to a body in recovery
  • Improve fatigue levels via the breath and the body-budgeting system

Please note: I am not a medical professional. I do not diagnose nor give medical advice. I work alongside GPs, Physiotherapists, Psychotherapists and other health professionals to ensure your health and wellbeing are managed in a safe and effective way. Please consult your GP with Long Covid health concerns.

Appointments are available online, or in person at Origin Physiotherapy, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK.

My Story:

In October 2020, during my final exams and clinical assessments I tested positive for Covid-19. I felt incredibly unwell with intense fatigue, body aches and pains, loss of smell and for the first time in my life, breathlessness.

Like many people I assumed once the acute symptoms had subsided, I’d be back to my normal self, but it wasn’t the case and the fatigue lingered on. Each morning I woke up feeling like I’d been drugged with intense headaches and brain fog, not able to do the things I normally did. Even walking and talking were a challenge.

As a normally fit and healthy person I hadn’t considered I would continue to be unwell for so long. I looked for things to help me recover but realised that the things I’d thought would help me were not working.

Finding an effective breathing practice was life-changing and helped me to manage my symptoms and regain a sense of trust in my body. I began to feel better. For me the breath was the key to my recovery.

Testimonials

“I love how skilfully Nadyne pairs breathing techniques with visual imagery and gentle movement to create the ideal scenario to be fully in control of the mind and body. These are techniques that I will use for the rest of my life. I also very much appreciate Nadyne’s approach to working with her clients. She is totally engaged, is a fabulous listener, and offers encouragement and scientific data and evidence to support the recovery process. I cherish every minute of my time working with Nadyne!”

Anna

“I love the idea of the imagination being one of the tools we can use for healing, for promoting wellbeing, and for restoring or receiving energy. I am also very aware of the key role of the breath – not only in improving breathing and overall physical health, but also as a means of channelling the flow of energy.”

Carole

“I have found every session with Nadyne to be so helpful. She layers and builds on various techniques from session to session which has given me a robust set of tools that I can use on my own. I have particularly found the use of visual imagery so helpful in overcoming some physical barriers I have been facing during my Covid recovery. I am so grateful to be feeling mentally and physically stronger. Thank you Nadyne for the important work you are doing.”

A

“It’s been really interesting to see how powerful the breathing practices are and the difference they can make to your physical health. As an asthmatic my breathing is now the best it has been in years; a lot slower and calmer. One of the things I’m most surprised about is my IBS has improved after 8 years and I’m able to manage my every levels more effectively. The visualisation techniques Nadyne uses have been really powerful and I’ve noticed a positive change in my creativity as an artist too.”

Reviews & Testimonials

"Working with Nadyne has been a life-saving exercise—literally"

“Working with Nadyne has been a life-saving exercise—literally. I use the breathing practices at night in bed, just before sleep, and my Oura ring shows the very clear results - reduction in heart rate and increase in HRV. I even replaced the beta-blockers prescribed to me with the 6/6 breathwork protocol and achieved similar results, minus the awful side effects of that terrible medication... I am forever grateful to Nadyne for this method and for the open-hearted grace with which she teaches it.”

Erin Sharoni

"A very supportive and compassionate space"

“Before the session with Nadyne, I was feeling very heavy with emotion, PTSD and lethargy due to being bed bound. Nadyne created a very supportive and compassionate space for me to show up as I was. Having experienced long covid herself, she 'gets it' - from the get go, we shared an instant comradery. Nadyne has a very healing and soothing voice; she guided me through powerful visualisation meditations combining colours, conscious breathing, a beautiful place in the world and visualising the breath moving through my body... ”

Jasmine Hayer @jasminehayer_

"incredible improvements in my symptoms"

“I was recommended to see Nadyne after having long covid. I’ve been working with Nadyne coming up to 2 months and have seen incredible improvements in my symptoms and general health beyond covid. It’s been really interesting to see how powerful the breathing practices are, and the differences they can make to your physical health. As an asthmatic my breathing is the best it has been in years, a lot slower and calmer. One of the things I am most surprised about is my IBS has improved after 8 years and I’m able to manage my energy levels more effectively... ... ”

Cat Vezmar

"Exactly what we need..."

“I want you to know that your approach in working with post-covid clients is exactly what we need: the calm and reassuring way you in which you provide a sense of hope and encouragement, the way you listen intently to the client and take notes, making the client feel heard and seen, and finally, the knowledge you have of the human body and ways to improve it are so appreciated”

Anna, Long Covid since March 2020

"You’ve been like a breath of fresh air"

“Thank you so much for the session. It has been so useful. I have completed the practice daily and have not used my ventolin since last week. Although my lungs still don’t feel back to normal. I’m trusting more in my breathing which is really positive... You’ve been like a breath of fresh air after months of having no positive feedback from anywhere.”

Mandy, Long Covid since October 2020

"Thank you for all you’re doing"

“I can’t describe how wonderful and informative I found the workshop. I was actually a little tearful at times as I have felt quite alone with my Long Covid symptoms and there is such a lack of information out there. Thank you for all you’re doing to heal people. It is really making a difference to many lives”.

Holly, NHS Occupational Therapist

"The classes really help me learn..."

“The classes really help me learn techniques to avoid spiralling thought patterns. Focusing on the breath and always having the breath as an anchor helps me ignore any distracting thought processes. More than anything Nadyne’s classes are about breathing and how that can help you in mind and body.”

Zoe Duerden

"A greater sense of wellbeing"

“I particularly enjoy Nadyne’s classes, not only because they’re effective and she knows her shit , but her energy is engaging and relaxing. I really feel like she takes time with each individual to help them get to grips with the practice as everybody has different obstacles and imbalances. Nadyne makes sure you’re being challenged in the right way. Already I’ve noticed my athletic performance improving in the gym. I’m noticing I have more range of movement and most importantly a greater sense of wellbeing has been achieved.”

Jason, Personal Trainer

"Helped relieve my anxiety"

“I highly recommend Nadyne’s classes. You dive into an ocean of relaxation, calm and strength, challenging the body at all different levels. The classes have especially helped relieve my anxiety. It’s amazing the way the classes make you feel. I especially love the poems Nadyne sometimes reads. I have high anxiety and low confidence and you can’t help but find yourself in some of the beautiful poetry. Yoga is poetry in motion essentially.”

Angela

"I felt so much lighter energetically"

“I did some more of the breathing yesterday and just sat with everything we did and said for the rest of the day. When I woke up this morning, I felt so much lighter energetically, it was amazing! I definitely feel more open. I love the process of how different modalities work. Thank you so much.”

Michelle, Yoga Therapy Client

"Nadyne has been amazing"

“Nadyne is an absolute star! We started offering virtual yoga classes for all of our employees through lockdown to help them unwind and keep moving. Nadyne has been amazing at tailoring to all abilities and really understanding the needs of each and every individual... Classes with Nadyne have become the highlight of my week, it’s the only time that I feel like my mind is still and my body fully relaxed...”

Sophie, Learning & Development Manager, Cook
