Nottingham local group

Jacky and Jayne set up the Nottingham local group in 2007 and are proud to have won the first FHT Coordinator of the Year, in 2015. Jayne has now retired from coordinating and Jacky would be glad to hear from anyone who would like to help her in that role. Our meetings are open to everyone; FHT members, members of other therapy associations and the general public. Some of the talks lead onto workshops for those wishing to take topics further. We arrange outings and share lifts to therapy conferences such as Holistic Health and Therapy Expo. We also have a Therapy Exchange Register for members who wish to swap treatments.

All talks are in Arnold Library Meeting Room, NG5 7EE on the fourth Tuesday evening of the month – every other month (January, March, May, July, September, November), 7.30-9.30pm. Please arrive at 7.15pm for a prompt 7:30 start.

Topic: Long Covid with Gina Reinge

Gina Reinge of The Reinge Clinic began treating injuries in 2008 after completing an Advanced Diploma in Sports Therapy at the Active Health Group in Manchester. She went on to complete a Sports Science Degree in 2012 and a Masters Degree (with Distinction) in Exercise and Health Sciences.

Gina and her husband Ian develop and run CPD workshops via Reinge Education. Their unique combination of knowledge allows them to provide a fresh approach to CPD learning, looking at how anatomy affects function within the body. Reinge Education merge Therapy and Sports Science principles to give a unique perspective on the body.

Gina is a regular speaker at Therapy Expo at the NEC presenting at the 2019 and 2021 events.

Previous studies looking into the effect of Covid have shown some concerning evidence on the risks of blood clots in both mild and severe covid infections. In this session we will take a look at any changes to the evidence base around Covid/ long Covid, specifically investigating changes to the risk factors surrounding hands-on therapies/rehabilitation for clients who have had Covid, in light of the new Omnicron variant. Evidently this is an important issue when assessing our clients and it'll be super to hear Gina talk with authority on this topic.
