Edinburgh Marathon Festival
Well, that's the Edinburgh Marathon Festival over for another year. We had quite a few runners in various races over the weekend. We want to say a big 'Thank You' to all those who supported us by running over the weekend. The team from Quartermile (Craig, Paul and Stephanie ran the 10K race and Hector and Katy ran the Half Marathon)!
Calum Hervieu ran the full Marathon and exceeded his fundraising target.
Meg Darling ran the Half Marathon in memory of her dad, Jack Sloan.
Kerry Houston ran the 5K along with family members and is already planning her 10k next year!
Dean VS MS
Dean has now completed his 4th Marathon since being diagnosed with MS. Not sure if he would say they are getting easier, we doubt it somehow! Great Job!
The Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre Lothian (MSTC) is a locally-based independent registered charity, set up in 1984 by a group of people living with MS, their families and friends. Since then we have been providing practical and beneficial information, support services and therapies at our Swanfield Centre, in Edinburgh. We offer access to a wide choice of support, allowing our clients the opportunity to self-manage their symptoms.
Our therapies include: physiotherapy, oxygen therapy (formerly known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy), yoga, Pilates, reflexology, massage, aromatherapy and other complementary services. The self-management options available at the Centre are complemented by input from our professional staff team who can provide informed advice on the benefits of each of the therapies on offer.
We also offer the benefits of Oxygen Therapy (here in Leith) to people living with a range of long-term health conditions. These include: Fibromyalgia , Diabetic ulcers, Lyme disease, Pancreatitis, Injury/wounds -speeds healing, reduces scar and infection, Rheumatoid arthritis (acute), Scleroderma, Peptic ulcer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, Parkinson's Syndrome, Autism, Stroke.
There is evidence to suggest that Oxygen Therapy can help in alleviating some of the associated symptoms. We will always inform your GP prior to commencement of this therapy.
