BP development decision wait

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A GROUP of residents who

banded together to fight the

expansion of the Edgeware BP

will have to wait to find out who

won.

BP has bought two sections

next to the service station on

the corner of Edgeware Rd and

Cranford St, and plans to build a

bigger forecourt and shop there.

But residents say it will

dominate their neighbourhood,

and destroy the character of the

area.

A hearing was held on Friday

where both sides put their

arguments. Commissioner

David Mountfort has reserved

his decision.

It is likely to be announced

within the next three weeks.

Only two residents who lived

directly next to the site, Kazu

Kano and Mary Botting, were

allowed to present their views at

the hearing.

A number of people from the

area attended the hearing, and

they presented a petition against

the expansion signed by 37

residents.

Mr Kano said it had been very

difficult for residents to fight, because

they were going up against

a big company which could

afford to hire a lot of lawyers and

expert witnesses.

He believed the expansion

was not needed, because over

two weeks he had visited the site

twice a day and had only seen a

queue to use pumps once.

But Cranford St is expected

to get busier once the Northern

Arterial motorway extension is

built.

Under the city council’s district

plan, the expansion should

not be allowed because the

properties BP wants to build on

are zoned residential.

But the city council

has recommended the

redevelopment should be

allowed so long as it sticks to

strict rules around things like

delivery times and landscaping

of the site.

FreshChoice

rolls out free

fruit for kids

Free fruit has been made available to

children accompanying their parents

shopping at FreshChoice supermarkets

in Christchurch. Seasonal fruit is now

on offer in the produce section of the

supermarkets under the “Free fruit for

kids” poster. The nationwide initiative

aims to help young children eat healthy

and occupy them while parents shop.

As part of the initiative, the FreshChoice

Community Fund has also been opened

up to allow local organisations to apply

for funds for fruit and raw vegetables for

schools and child-focused events.

Petition aims to fix intersection

In Brief

A former city councillor has launched a petition

to improve safety around the busy Harewood Rd

Fashion

junction


• By Andrew King

A PETITION to take

immediate action over a

Harewood intersection has

been started by a community

board deputy chairman.

The Breens, Gardiners and

Harewood Rds intersection

Gardening

has been a serious concern for

residents and parents whose

children need to cross it to get

to school.

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board deputy chairman Aaron

Keown has started a petition to

force the city council to make

changes to the intersection.

Motoring

“It’s dangerous and needs change,” he said.

He started to deliver them on

Tuesday, beginning with nearby

businesses with workers who

use the intersection.

“I will definitely be handing

it out around both Breens

Intermediate and Casebrook

Intermediate whose students

Tasty Bites

use the intersection,” he said.

Valentino’s Hair Design

owner Adem Ferkatovich was

one of the first to receive the

petition and said everyone who

had looked at it, signed it.

“We have about 30 signatures

already,” he said.

He agreed the intersection

needed to be looked at.

“It has been a problem for

many years now,” he said.

It is the second intersection

near Breens Intermediate to

come under fire from residents.

Bishopdale residents have

asked the city council to build

a pedestrian island in the middle

of busy Farrington Ave,

near where it intersects with

Wairakei Rd, to assist students

to get through the traffic.

The city council has said

there are no plans to make

further safety changes to

either intersections – but has

agreed to listen to community

concerns.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Would

you sign a petition

supporting the change of

Harewood intersection or is

it not a big problem? Share

your views with us. Email

FIRST: Shirley-Papanui Community Board deputy chairman

Aaron Keown hands out the first of many petitions to Valentino’s

Hair Design owner Adem Ferkatovich to change a Harewood

intersection. ​

REPAIRS START

The Mona Vale Fernery in

Fendalton, which was damaged in

the earthquakes, is being repaired

and strengthened. The city

council has engaged contractor

Dominion Construction Ltd to fix

the damage to the building and

strengthen it. The work should be

completed by the end of October.

The exotic and native ferns will

not be impacted by the work,

which is mainly happening on the

exterior of the building.

ROAD CLOSURE

A temporary road closure will be

in place along Dover St while work

is underway to repair sections

of an earthquake-damaged

wastewater pipe. The closure will

be temporary between Radnor St

and 36 Dover St. It’s expected to

take up to one week to finish and

started yesterday.

SUGAR-FREE DAYS

Elmwood Normal School is asking

pupils and parents to go sugar-free

every Tuesday during the third

term. The plan is to eat lunches

that have as little sugar as possible,

while educating the pupils about

what added sugar is and what

products should be avoided. The

school will also run a parent’s

session on the subject to get the

message home.

Davidson says speed

review disappointing

ashion

• By Andrew King


A REVIEW of speed limits

in Christchurch has not

included a reduction around

schools which has been

labelled “disappointing” by a

community board chairman.

Four roads in the north-west

Gardening

have been recommended for

lower speed limits after a review

by city council traffic staff and

suggestions from the Shirley-

Papanui Community Board.

Certain sections

of Blakes, Belfast,

Greywacke and

Highsted Rds will

have lower speed

otoring

limits imposed

from October

31, if the recommendations

from the board are

approved by the city council.

But board chairman Mike

Davidson (above) said he was

disappointed the board’s request

to lower speeds from 50km/h to

30km/h around schools was not

asty Bites

adopted part of the review.

“We think it is something

that should have been seriously

considered,” he said.

City council traffic operations

manager Steffan Thomas said

the submission has not been

rejected, it requires further

analysis.

He said staff will have to determine

which school frontages

that have alternative or more

appropriate traffic management

options such as traffic signals requiring

motorists to stop, rather

than slow down, or vertical traffic

calming devices which create

operating speeds much lower

than a speed zone already.

Also they will have to assess

the impact of the new speed

management guideline just

released by New Zealand

Transport Agency on

speed limits in general and

SAFETY FIRST:

The Shirley-

Papanui

Community

Board

suggested

speed limits

around

schools be

lowered to

30km/h. ​

particularly around schools.

He said all of that is being

worked through, with a tentative

completion date of September

30.

Mr Davidson said the unpredictability

of children should be

taken into account and if there

was a lower speed limit around

schools then pupils would be

better protected.

“It is not about inhibiting people’s

driving pleasure, it is about

safety,” he said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should

all schools have a 30km/h

speed limit? Share your

KEEPING

WATCH:

Nursery

worker Mike

Smith at the

Harewood

Nursery. ​

City’s many trees begin

life at Harewood Nursery

CHRISTCHURCH is well

known for its parks filled with

established trees.

Many of these huge specimens

started their lives as seedlings

in a city council-run nursery in

Harewood.

The Harewood Nursery grows

thousands of shrubs, trees and

other plants used in city parks,

street landscaping, and the regeneration

of native bush on the

Port Hills and wetland areas.

It was established in 1978 and

for the past 38 years a small team

of staff have been quietly collecting

seeds, propagating cuttings,

and nursing trees into the mature

specimens.

The red maples that will be a

major feature of the Earthquake

Memorial Park are being looked

after at the nursery until they

are ready to be moved to their

permanent home.

The nursery is not open to the

public, but it houses a selection

of plants stretching over 11ha

including native grasses, astelias,

magnolias, heritage fruit trees,

upright oaks, red oaks, pin oaks,

hornbeams, field maples and

turkish tree hazels.

“We grow what the city council’s

landscapers want us to grow

basically, and we try and keep up

with it,” nursery supervisor Joe

Cartman said.

In the 12 months to June

the nursery dispatched 1600

specimen trees and 240,000

smaller grade plants.

Pokémon stop or go?

This week’s

opinion piece

is written by

Ilam resident

and charity

founder Kelly

Dugan. He

writes about a strange new

phenomenon sweeping

the nation and captivating

children in his area

The other night at around

10, I went outside my house to

investigate noises.

Nothing too unusual. I live

on a main road but the difference

was the voices were from

children, unusual at that time

of night.

I stood at the end of my driveway

and saw around 15 people

loitering with their phones held

up like periscopes so I looked up

(maybe a UFO was flying over?)

It was a UFO but a soon to

be identified unidentified flying

object, it seems there was a

Pokémon on my street.

A UPO perhaps.

I have heard of the Pokémon

craze taking hold of adults and

children alike, the concerns of

safety due to people running

onto roads, falling into ditches

and running into power poles.

I waited and none of these

hazards occurred. All I witnessed

were kids out with their

parents.

They were still attached it

their phones but this was different,

they were off the couch,

they were outdoors and they

were moving around chasing

some elusive computer-generated

UPO.

Sure it was late; these kids

should be in bed, but then I

remembered when I was young

(in the 70s and 80s), when being

out at night was an adventure

and exciting.

With all the negativity in this

craze, there is a good side –

children and their parents out

together in the fresh air having

fun and having something in

common. If you run into a lamp

post or into traffic, you are an

idiot with or without the UPOs.

Do you have swarms of

kids chasing pocket

monsters around your

neighbourhood? Is it

good to get kids outdoors

looking for them, or is it a

dangerous pastime? Share

Spate of blazes keeps

firefighters busy

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

THERE HAVE been a number of

quite serious fires in the city this

week. And this column is being

written, hurriedly, before I head

off to one of them.

The deliberate fire set in the

empty building on Hereford St

last Friday was another example

of our firefighters being put in

danger by the reckless and criminal

actions of some idiot.

The fire was on an upper floor

and the only way to get to it was

from inside.

This meant climbing stairwells

with charged fire hoses in a

building with structural safety

issues that was already compromised

by earthquake damage

even before the fire damage

occurred.

In this case, the fire crews did a

brilliant job in restricting the fire

to the floor of origin.

It’s just that they should never

have had to.

Last Saturday, we had an incident

where a young woman was

burnt trying to encourage a fire

in a drum at a property in Hoon

Hay that was dying down by

GUTTED: Another fire, this time in Woolston, has kept

firefighters and investigators busy. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

throwing petrol on to it.

These type of incidents are

actually not all that rare.

Even in winter, petrol products

freed into the air invisibly

vaporise, leaving a surrounding

mixture of highly-flammable gas

that is many times larger than a

pool or splash of fuel.

On meeting an ignition source

– in this case the already burning

fire – the vapour cloud ignites.

Sometimes with horrendous

results.

Not a nice way to remember a

party, where alcohol consumption

can overcome normal

common sense and influence a

decision that, in hindsight, might

just be seen as ‘unwise’.

Long-established salespeople offer

personalised, friendly service

Grassam real estate was

established in Cavendish Business Park

in June 2010 after Gillman real estate

was absorbed by simes and Knight

Frank real estate agencies.

real estate salespeople Paul and

Fay had both previously worked for

Gillman real estate, mostly in North

Canterbury and Christchurch, selling

and listing for their many clients.

When Pauline and Juline Grassam

decided to start their own business,

Paul joined them as their licensee

agent and Fay joined a short time

later. Paul and Fay are very established

salespeople, Fay having 17 years’

experience and Paul 37 years, and both

work independently. Paul also manages

the company’s Property management

portfolio.

What do people expect from their

real estate salesperson?

Personalised, professional service

with all the advantages of local

knowledge. Buying a home is a big

investment and selling can be stressful.

Both Paul and Fay are equipped with

the knowledge, skills and resources to

provide exceptional results.

time for a friendly chat about what is

happening in the market and find out

Quality takeaways popular with customers

WheN It comes to takeaways,

main North road.

There, the focus is on

quality ingredients and

fast service, with the aim

of providing fresh, healthy

lamb leg

marinated

and cooked

to perfection,

set meals with

rice or couscous, snack

boxes and combos, drinks, wedges,

and one of the most popular items

NOR’WEST NEWS

– their high-quality fries.

Customers come not only from

across the redwood area,

but also from Kaiapoi

and rangiora, and

even New Brighton.

Further testimony to

the quality and flavour

of the food at redwood

souvlaki are the positive

comments and ratings on

Google and on the trip

advisor website, where it

has a traveller rating of

‘excellent’ and is described

Out Of Hand

Ben Reid’s primary interest for his printmaking is NZ’s

environment and the impact of humans on our precious land.

His work often depicts tales of loss of habitat, extinction of

species and introduced and exotic predators.

The print work produced in 2016 is a continuation of themes

of NZ’s preservation. Narratives within each work consider

isolation, regret, time passing, acknowledgement of our history,

where we live and what NZ is, and what it means to us, also

about hope and optimism, and accepting and learning from our

mistakes, past and present.

As told by Warren Feeney, “Reid’s delicate, elegantly structured

and at times gently humorous prints are here to remind us of

what is at stake: the unselfconscious grace and beauty of New

Zealand’s indigenous birds and the way they enrich our world”.

Marahau wood carving artist Tim Wraight describes works for

this exhibition come from 2 streams.

“Firstly there are 2 carved cubes of Totara wood in which I

explore the laying of pattern onto a strong form, with a

whimsical approach combining dancing figures and a quite

formal pattern.

The other group of works; old hand tools refashioned for

‘ritual’ purposes, with new carved handles and decorations of

feathers, fibre and found objects, give reference and reverence

to rural traditions and pre mass production industry, and the

people who powered these tools with their physical selves. As

a hand tool user I am aware of the intimate relationship with

the material that the user obtains and indeed needs in order

to succeed in their work. Sound, sight, touch, force and a feel

for the interaction between material and tool all come into play.

I am drawn to the beauty of hand forged steel, and learnt from

my grandfather how to use and maintain these simple but

efficient objects.”

Nurse Maude COMMuNITY ParTNersHIPs

driving force behind Nurse Maude

The supporT of the people of

Christchurch for Nurse Maude’s work

started the day sibylla Maude first

stepped out on the streets of Christchurch

120 years ago with the community

recognising the need and responding.

“Just as Nurse Maude has always been

a large part of the community, so the

community has been such a large part

of Nurse Maude,” says sue Bramwell,

general manager of marketing for Nurse

Maude.

That partnership with the community

continues today through its support of

Nurse Maude’s hospice shops, Maudes

on Trade Me and key sponsorships which

include harcourts holmwood.

harcourts holmwood has been,

literally, behind Nurse Maude for

more than seven years now, with its

sponsorship of an initial five cars now

increased to more than 30.

every year sales consultants from

harcourts holmwood are clocking up

millions of kilometres across the greater

Christchurch and Canterbury region.

The Nurse Maude cars are on the road

seven days a week, delivering nursing

care across Canterbury and the chances

are when you see one of Nurse Maude’s

distinctive white cars on the road that the

back window will be carrying the name

and photo of a sales consultant from the

harcourts holmwood franchise.

With the agents’ photo, name and

contact details in the rear window, both

harcourts holmwood and Nurse Maude

are benefiting from the partnership and

Bramwell says mutual benefit is what a

good sponsorship agreement is all about.

“For us it’s essential support for Nurse

Maude, for harcourts holmwood it’s

a very effective way of letting people

know that the company not only cares

about supporting the community it does

business with, it is actually doing so,” says

Bramwell.

harcourts holmwood has found

that people like the fact that the sales

consultants they list their home with are

donating a significant amount of money

to Nurse Maude every year.

playing a key part in helping Nurse

Maude care for the people of Canterbury

doesn’t just start and stop with Nurse

Maude’s cars however.

harcourts holmwood’s support went

above and beyond during the earthquakes

when its sales consultants turned out

to help deliver water, portable toilets

and blankets to Nurse Maude’s most

vulnerable clients.

It also has regular clothing drives for

the Nurse Maude hospice shops and

gathers donations from its events.

“Individually and collectively the

people of harcourts holmwood have

contributed a great deal to the work of

Nurse Maude,” says Bramwell.

“It’s an enduring sponsorship of which

they are justifiably proud and we are very

fortunate to have.”

Nurse Maude COMMuNITY ParTNersHIPs

Perfect synergy

in sponsorship

There are some partnerships that just make perfect sense, and the one

between eCoCentral and Nurse Maude would be one of those.

WheN Nurse Maude started

Maudes on Trade Me, selling almost

everything from furniture to fine

jewellery to raise money for its nursing

services it soon ran out of storage

space.

“In the past a lack of space meant

that Maudes on Trade Me, had often

been unable to take large volumes of

donated goods,” says sue Bramwell,

general manager marketing for Nurse

Maude.

With the considerable resources of

eCoCentral now behind it, however,

Maudes on Trade Me is able to clear

entire house lots, moving the larger

items through the eCoshop on

Blenheim road.

The partnership has been a great

success with Maudes on Trade Me now

able to clear entire house lots and take

in a much broader range of furniture

and whiteware.

“people can still drop smaller items

off to any of our hospice shops,” says

Bramwell, “but we can now go out and

collect house lots of saleable furniture

and whiteware if people want to email

us or give us a call.”

For Judi sefton, Chief executive

of eCoCentral and Jim Magee,

Chief executive of Nurse Maude,

the partnership simply makes sense,

allowing a wide range of goods to be

recycled and sold to support Nurse

Maude’s services rather than be

dumped.

“eCoCentral is all about maximising

the volume of goods that can be

recycled and minimising landfill,” says

sefton, “and to be able to do that while

helping raise money for Nurse Maude

can only be a good thing.”

“The partnership between

eCoCentral and Nurse Maude

clearly demonstrates the huge value

the business community can bring

to organisations such as ours,” says

Bramwell.

Those who need to downsize, clear

some space or simply see unwanted

furniture and household goods to

benefit the wider community rather

than just be dumped see Maudes on

Trade Me as the ideal home for those

items.

For Nurse Maude it means much

needed financial support for nursing

services at a time of increasing demand,

while eCoCentral is all about caring

for the community through recycling

and reducing landfill.

“ecoCentral and Nurse Maude

talk about caring for the people of

Canterbury together and that is exactly

what’s happening here,” says Bramwell.

“everyone is benefiting.”

With the considerable

resources of eCoCentral

now behind it, Maudes on

Trade Me is able to clear

entire house lots, moving

the larger items through

the eCoshop on

Blenheim road.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness

in your house

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways to

make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy

for their families throughout winter. rISIng

DAMP is an issue that affects many of our

older properties which suffer from poor, or no,

insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake,

many people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated with

health problems. Independent tests have shown

that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the

ground and enter a house every day, leading to

mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells.

Moulds can produce various allergic reactions

and the frail, elderly and very young are especially

vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally

owned and operated firm. The team understands

the problems caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete

under your timber floored home. Specially

adapted for our new Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit

that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508

VenTILATIon

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

MIRACLE OIL

ReveRed foR centuries by Polynesians

and Southeast Asians for its remarkable

skin anti-aging and healing properties,

dilo oil comes from the nut of the sacred

dilo tree, “the tree of a thousand virtues”.

The dilo tree draws its sustenance directly

from the nutrient rich warm waters of the

Pacific ocean.

dilo oil is also called “the beauty oil”

as it can penetrate all three layers of the

skin offering exceptional cell hydration

and regeneration. It has a unique ability

to stimulate the growth of healthy skin

cells and the formation of new tissue

giving it powerful anti-aging properties

that can help reduce lines, blemishes,

scars, stretchmarks, dry or scaly skin, skin

redness and repair damaged skin.

It also possesses anti-inflammatory,

antimicrobial, antifungal, antioxidant and

sun protective properties and is commonly

used on most skin ailments including

rosacea, pimples, ulcers and sores,

acne and acne scars, psoriasis, eczema,

dermatitis, rashes, blisters, skin eruptions,

warts, insect bites and stings, athlete’s

foot, burns, sunburn, cuts and cracks,

nappy rash, and many more often with

incredible results. Also it is used for joint

and muscular pain and may even help

stimulate healing.

PREVENt fALLS IN COLD wEAthER

Warm up sleepy muscles

and joints gently.

Winter ground is often wet, very cold and

slippery, making it easy to fall which results

in injury, sometimes serious.

Cold muscles and joints are tight and stiff,

don’t perform well, less ready for action and

warming them up gently will loosen them

and ease them into movement.

A good warm up keeps the body working

like a well-oiled machine. Joints and muscles

work together for maximum efficiency and

full body strength which is vital for injury

prevention.

You can warm up muscles, joints, hands and

feet while watching Tv with an Aircycle

circulation booster. The gentle exercise will

help strengthen leg muscles and increase

joint flexibility for better balance and to help

you stay on your feet.

A few minutes Aircycle exercise while

sitting down with a coffee, chatting to a

Liposomal Vitamin C Offers

More health Benefits

Liposomal vitamin C is a technological breakthrough and may offer

incredible health benefits.

vitamin C is a vital antioxidant nutrient

that plays a critical role in the immune

function. White blood cells depend upon

vitamin C in order to survive and withstand

the attack of pathogens and free radicals.

environmental toxins damage cells that

leads to disease but vitamin C and other

antioxidants can neutralize this damage.

vitamin C does not directly attack cancer

cells but helps keep the immune system

strong. The immune system fights cancer

cells with hydrogen peroxide, a natural type

of chemotherapy to destroy the cancer cells.

vitamin C may help prevent one of our

worst diseases and many researchers believe

it to be a useful part of a comprehensive

cancer treatment protocol.

vitamin C also has many other important

roles in the body. It is a major constituent in

the production of collagen, ligaments, bones,

discs, tendons and skin. It has been shown to

improve the healing process of burns, cuts,

wounds, sprains/strains and broken bones as

well as reduce inflammation and pain. It is

known to support cardiovascular function,

blood flow and keep the blood vessels strong

but flexible. vitamin C has numerous other

health benefits including supporting lung

function, balanced blood sugar levels and

eye health.

vitamin C cannot be produced in the

body but must come from our diet. our

bodies require much more vitamin C

than ever before due to our more stressful

lifestyle and toxic environment. Many

researchers believe it is impossible to obtain

enough vitamin C in a normal healthy diet.

Most oral vitamin C supplements are

believed to have an absorption rate of as low

as 20%. This is due to vitamin C being water

soluble and our cell membranes being made

up of fat and the fact that water and fat don’t

mix.

Liposomal vitamin C is made by

combining essential phospholipid fatty acids

with vitamin C to form nano-size particles

that can easily pass through the digestive

system into the bloodstream and into the

cells. The absorption rate is over 90% and

liposomal vitamin C is easily stored in the

body for use when required.

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical sense in sydenham sees clients with a range

of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

PhysiotheraPist ietje van

stolk suggests that a major part of the

pain could be due to muscle pain rather

than simply arthritis. “even if an x-ray

shows arthritis, the reason for the pain

may be the muscles around the joint,”

she explains. The images show how

a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front

of the shoulder and a muscle knot all the

way near the groin can give an ache in

the knee (especially at night in bed).

ietje recalls one case where an 89

year old client with severe arthritis who

walked with a stick, told her, “i will

end up in a wheelchair, i cannot put

any weight through my right leg due to

pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within

4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,”

says ietje. “The arthritis was one of the

factors that made her muscles spasm but

the other was that older people move

less and the flexed position the hip is

in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could

have been “given up on” or told to live

with the pain, she made a difference to

her health and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can

be the reason for your knee pain or

your shoulder pain and the same few

treatments could make a huge difference

for you.

at Physical sense, hands-on

techniques (massage and triggerpoint

deactivation techniques) are used

to release the muscles. The client

also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the

joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength

and balance. They teach a movement

sequence that stretches the joint in all

directions whilst the client is able to lie

safely on their bed, perfect for older or

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

HIP PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

less mobile clients.

in many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to

maintain it, is enough to stay on top of

the problem. if severe arthritis is the

underlying cause, some maintenance

therapy may be necessary, but that is

often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. in

very few treatments the client will know

if it is going to work for them or not,

without financial commitment.

Physical sense Gym & Physio

is located at 300 Colombo street,

sydenham. The Blue line Bus stops in

front of the door and there is ample

parking. to enquire about specialised
