BioWave is a patented pain blocking technology that is designed to block pain at source. It delivers therapeutic signals through the skin that help prevent pain from reaching the brain. It has proven to be an excellent in treating chronic, acute, or post-operative pain, as well as phantom pain and neuropathy pain.
Although the Biowave looks very much like a TENS machine, it has some significant differences. A TENS machine delivers a current on the surface of the skin which can provide interference of pain signals whilst you are using it. Biowave delivers a much deeper current reaching the deeper nerve endings that convey pain signals via the spinal cord to the brain. The effects of Biowave can last for as long as 72 hours, and over time chronic pain sufferers find that the need to use it diminishes over time.
When Kristine first tried Biowave at the Platform 14 headquarters she walked in with severe pain (sciatica) in her left leg. She struggled to walk up the stairs and rated her pain as 8/10. After 30 minutes of Biowave treatment the pain was down to 2/10, and this lasted for over two days.
Since then, we have been lending home Biowave devices to dozens of patients, including athletes who need to continue training through injury, soldiers with injuries from shrapnel and bombs, elderly patients with neuropathy pains or compression fractures, men, and women with nerve pain from disc prolapses and patients recovering from surgery such as joint replacements or resurfacing.

Making a bread that requires no yeast or kneading has got to be the definition of simple! The texture is more cake like as a result and best eaten with some salted butter (not used to make sandwiches). If you are warming it through, do so in the oven rather than in the toaster, as it is quite crumbly. Once baked, it will keep in an airtight container for 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month—thaw before slicing and toasting.
Yotam Ottolenghi Simple
Makes: 1 loaf, 10 slices
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hr 20 min
50g rolled oats
20g thyme leaves, finely chopped
50g pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
2 teaspoons nigella seeds
100g all-purpose flour
100g plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
200 g beetroot, peeled and finely grated
80ml sunflower oil, plus 1 tablespoon extra for greasing
80g sour cream
1 tablespoon honey
120g young and creamy goat cheese, roughly broken into 3/4-inch/2cm pieces
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease an 8 x 4-inch/20 x 10cm loaf pan and line with parchment paper.
2. Mix the oats, thyme, pumpkin, caraway, and nigella seeds in a small bowl. Put both flours into a separate bowl with the baking powder, baking soda, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Whisk to combine and aerate, then add the grated beet and all but 1 tablespoon of the oat and seed mix. Do not stir the mixture; just set it aside.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, sour cream, honey, and Parmesan. Pour over the flour and beet mixture, then, using a spatula, mix to combine. Add the goat cheese and carefully fold through, trying not to break the pieces as you go.
4. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of the oat and seed mix. Bake for 40 minutes, then cover tightly with foil and bake for another 40 minutes. A skewer inserted into the middle will not come out completely clean, but it should not be too wet. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and invert the bread so it is resting seed side up. The exterior will be quite crisp and dark. Cool for at least 20 minutes before slicing.
How is this for serendipity! This email popped into my inbox last week from one our long-standing clients. He and his wife have now taken up our online stretch class in order and provided a real boost in these tricky times.
“We do enjoy and benefit from your half hour sessions. I know it is silly but, though we could easily do much of it on our own, in practice we need the discipline of the class and someone leading us to make us do it!
In my younger days I was not at all into physical activities or sport; music was more my thing. At 57 I was stiffening up thinking what I will be like in 10 years. One of my clients introduced me to Personal Best and now, having just reached 77 and feeling pretty fit for my age, I am eternally grateful for you putting up with me for the last 20 years.”
Being physically active goes a long way toward good heart health. It is one of your most effective tools for strengthening the heart muscle and keeping your weight under control. Aerobic exercise improves circulation, which results in lowered blood pressure and heart rate. It also helps guard against any artery damage from high cholesterol, high blood sugar and high blood pressure that may lead to heart attack or stroke.
Daily, constant exertion was an integral part of humanity for millennia, but in just a few decades movement was virtually designed out of people's lives through transformed workplaces, the dominance of the car, and a built environment which encourages people to be static.
What for centuries was universal and everyday has become the fetishised pursuit of a minority, whether the superhuman feats of elite athletes, or a chore slotted into busy schedules.
The good news is, it is never too late to start exercising and benefitting from all the health benefits that physical activity brings. Even if you have had, or you feel like you have had a lifetime of inactivity, we know that it can be hard to get started, but one of the easiest things to do is to try and reduce the amount of time spent sitting every day. Do not worry about which exercise you need to do, or which class to attend, just think about moving more and moving well!
