Walkfeeling: Our Story
Walkfeeling was founded with a key goal – to create freedom in movement and relieve pain. Learn more about our journey below.
Walkfeeling was founded in 2016 to provide an alternative therapy for those who suffer from pain or injury during Walking or Running. More recently, Runfeeling was developed and uses the Walkfeeling principles to support runners and athletes.
Walkfeeling was founded in 2016 by Murdo Mackay, an ex Navy-militant and Tommy Olausson, an professional osteopath, massage therapist and ex-football coach. The principles behind the Walkfeeling ethos incorporate ten years of influences from sports, physiotherapy, mental health, and the military.
Through our interactions, we discovered that people of all ages and backgrounds (including; kids, teens, and adults) experience pain. Pain is universal, and unfortuantly, it seems to be getting worse. We created Walkfeeling to support people who suffer from pain, aches, tension, and other movement limitations. Walkfeeling offers a unique type of walking therapy and is a safe and accessible alternative to mainstream health services. Our Movement Coaches will find the source of your pain, apply simple Walkfeeling Motion Analysis and Movement Training to improve your freedom of movement.
Walkfeeling and Runfeeling are similar in their aproaches but offer different services - They both cater to clients with the same desired outcomes - a desire to exercise, run, walk, or move, in a way that is painless.
Walkfeeling movement coaching services support a range of individuals who want to find freedom in movement.
Runfeeling provides a similar service but focuses on the running aspect of exercise and training. Did you know that active people walk between 10,000 and 15,000 steps a day, that is almost 200,000 km in a lifetime? We believe that you deserve be able to walk and run faster, freely, and without pain.
The founder of Walkfeeling, Murdo Mackay, came up with the concept due to his combined experiences from the military, football and his relationship with his body, injury, and pain. He believes that everyone should treat their own body with respect.
"If you listen to your body when it whispers - you won’t have to hear it scream."
Walkfeeling gives you an opportunity to learn how to treat your body and how to find solutions to erradicate pain for good.
