Ha ha. A little laugh for the short week. Muscles are what move us

No automatic alt text available.

Emmett Technique and Bowen Therapy both work in a gentle way on the soft tissue of your body to release pain and discomfort. Why work on the soft tissue and not the bones? If you think of your body as a tent. Your muscles as the guy ropes and your skeleton as the poles. If the guy ropes of a tent a pulled too tight on one side of the tent what happens? It will pull the tent over and create all sorts of tension and will put your poles on an angle, the guy ropes hold the p...oles in place. When we think of that in body terms, one leg can be shorter due to muscle tension creating hip, knee, ankle, back pain. Releasing the muscles can restore the bodys skeletal alignment allowing the body to move how it should. Working on the soft tissue rather than directly on the skeleton is a relaxing experience not another trauma for your body to deal with.

Today was celebration of life day. There is always something to celebrate even if it is something small. Today I am celebrating that my sons tibia in his right leg is healing well after his scooter crash What are you celebrating?

Happy new year everyone. I hope you have had a wonderful holiday. We had some great time with family and friends camping and enjoying our kiwi summer. Unfortunately one of my sons is now sporting a large cast on his leg to heal a spiral fracture. Bowen and Emmett will come in handy dealing with the muscle aches and pains associated with carrying the extra weight around in an unnatural posture and also building the muscle strength once the cast is off.

I am back in clinic from Monday 15th January. So if you need a treatment give me a call. 😎

Yes, we've nearly made it to the holiday season, hopefully you aren't too frazzled . To all my lovely clients I hope that you are able to enjoy time with family and friends in the sun and that you can start the new year feeling rested and ready for an awesome 2018. Take care and safe travels.

The jaw has a big impact on how the body operates

Look at any boxing match with a KO - a good hook to the jaw invariably signals the end of the fight. So, how important is the TMJ? Have a read and see what you think...

Without sufficient water, many of the body’s essential cellular processes are severely hampered! Digestive, skin, bladder and kidney problems, fatigue and headaches are just some of the adverse effects from not drinking enough water.

Business expo in Wellsford yesterday, was great to hear about some of the businesses that I didn't even know were in our little community, and also to hear about some exciting changes happening for some of the older businesses in town.

What have I been up to lately?
Treating lots of back problems, mostly lower back. Maybe because we are spending more time sitting inside out of the wet and cold weather. Often it's the piriformis muscle or the psoas muscle that is causing the problem.
If you are doing more sitting than usual make sure you get up and move around every 30 minutes to stretch out those muscles. Also check your posture while you are sitting too.
With both my boys playing rugby I have made myself useful treating team players with any aches and pains, today it was pain below the knee for one player and lower back pain for another. They love it when they can carry on playing and not be stuck on the sideline. No one likes to be stuck on the sideline!

Last week I had the pleasure of treating some lovely ladies at the Dairy Women's Network - Rodney Wellness day. Was so much fun, a round of golf, a lovely lunch and then some treatments for these hard working ladies.

Dianne Denton from Align Me practicing her Bowen therapy for us... thanks Dianne, much appreciated.

At BIS we let the students choose whether they want to wear shoes or not throughout the school day. If they want to wear shoes the style of shoe they choose is ...made by the student and their family, not the school. We are educating and advocating for the child, it's important a child wears what makes them feel good so that they are comfortable and happy to learn.

If you’re not ready to home school or move to a tropical, shoe-optional locale, there are plenty of opportunities to foster kids’ healthy foot development.

Was in Christchurch over the weekend, this time for a course that delved deeper into the understanding of the importance of symmetry, lots to think about.
The last time I was in Christchurch was just after the first earthquake. I always think of Christchurch as a beautiful almost majestical city with it's meandering stream, impressive old buildings and beautiful parks. But to visit now it is a city of change, of disruption, it is an injured city that has been torn apart and is doing its best to rebuild itself.
Didn't have much time to look around, but the Friday food market in what was the old square had a really neat vibe, about 30 different food stalls from all corners of the world, buskers and a few craft stalls all happening in the shadow of the very large reminder of what they have been through - the ruins of the cathedral
