Stop Running & Do Some Maintenance

By Reinette Nel.

ReinetteSo, you are driving along in your car, when suddenly you hear a clickety-clack noise.  Or maybe that noise has been there for a while, but today, because it’s cold, it’s a bit louder and more insistent.  What do you do?

Do you ignore it or do you decide that it’s time you ask a mechanic to look at it?  Maybe he can tell you not to worry, or maybe your car just needs oil and he can quickly do it for you?  What will happen if you keep ignoring it and keep on driving, day after day, after day?  Of course it will break down and we both know it will most likely happen at the most inconvenient time.  The day you have your interview for that job that you really, really want!  Or maybe even on your wedding day or Year 12 exam!  No, you know it’s best to let someone have a look and fix it now, rather than wait and then you have to fork out even more money and you might be without a car for a week or two.

So why don’t you treat your body the same?  Why don’t you take care of those little niggles, before they become big issues?  Chronic issues, which will stop you from living your life - the one where you can do what you want, when you want!  No, we would rather just pop a pill and see if it disappears, or we ignore it until it just feels normal.  Isn’t this how you are supposed to feel when you are getting old or working hard or have three kids running around?



Bowen therapy can be your first port of call, it can be the oil change at just the right time, before you need a whole new engine.  It can be the difference between an hour of maintenance, compared to a week off sick or living a life in pain and discomfort.  If you take care of the small things they will never have time to develop into something big.  It should be your go-to first aid procedure, so that you can make that interview with a calm presence, a clear mind and a flexible, pain-free body.  It will get you to your wedding on time, so that you can enjoy the night without that lower back pain.  It’s writing your Year 12 exam without that headache, tight neck and shoulders.  When you have been in an accident or fallen off your bike, it can make the difference between being in pain for months to being sore for just a few weeks.

So why don’t you put it in your First-aid cabinet, let it be just a call away and take better care of yourself.  Spending a little now sounds much better than spending a lot later.  Stop running away from your pain and issues this summer and come in for some maintenance.  You will feel a whole lot better!

Overlooking Positive Points [...]

by Karen Chin.

Have you ever noticed what you place your focus on?

Your Best Interests at Heart

by Jen Taylor.

What is it that bothers you?  A problem or issue that could really be worthy of attention.  Something which feels annoying or is even more compelling and having a destructive effect on your health or relationships?  Perhaps it comes as a quiet whisper or a deeper nagging feeling?  Have you been tucking it away, seeing if it could magically disappear?  Hoping that tomorrow will be the day and yet, as each day evolves, the problem and the discomfort is still there.

Make Decisions, Not Excuses

by Celia Leveridge.

Every decision I make is the right one for me ~ Louise Hay.

This is quite a feat to state that every decision I make is the right one for me.  What can we interpret from what Louise has said?

The Health of the World

by Dr Jenna

In June I was able to attend an International Integrated Medical Conference in Germany, it was an amazing conference and I felt very inspired by what was shared. There were practitioners form all over the world and all types of modalities. We had presentations from the UN, PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) and the European Union to name a few. Countries presented how they were working to bring integrative health into their health systems. There were great success stories from Brazil, Germany, Switzerland and even Britain and there were only a few of us from New Zealand and Australia, I was able to present a post about how The Healing Rooms integrates health care.

Winter

By Marianne Kornaat.

Bears in winter go into a cave to hibernate but for us in Australia we don’t do quite the same. According to Chinese medicine, winter is a time of hibernation even if it may be in a different sense of not entering a cave but being more aware of stillness and quiet time. The Chinese say in winter one must go early to bed and rise up late - it makes sense - in winter it’s cold and dark so who really wants to get up in the morning?
