Residents

upset with

decision to

move social

housing into

quiet street

• By Bea Gooding

RESIDENTS SAY they have been

failed in their bid to stop social

housing going ahead on their

quiet street.

The Christchurch Methodist

Mission’s plan to move 16 temporary

units from Linwood Park a

site in Guild St, Richmond, was

granted by a city council hearings

panel last week.

Residents cannot appeal the

decision because the mission’s

resource consent application was

non-notifiable, which means the

public can’t make submissions

on it.

The units were used at

Linwood Park for temporary

housing after the 2011 earthquakes.

Guild St resident Mike

Williams felt the process failed

his community especially for

those who have spent thousands

of dollars complying with the city

council’s rules and regulations

for the area.

“Many in the community

feel the same and have

legitimate concerns about this

proposal.

Veterinary practice

A Kidney Toxicity Survivor

Over the next 2 months, I thought id write

about two cases that required much input

and care from our entire team of experts. We

treat hundreds of sick patients weekly and

many of them spend weeks in our hospital

being nursed back to full health.

We have so many

special long term

patients that we all

connect with on

different levels but I

cant write them all up

here. We don’t have

favourites because

we love and want to

treat all the animals

that walk through our

doors. I chose these

two patients as they

highlight diseases we commonly see and

treat here and they also show incredible

owner commitment and positivity towards

the whole process. It has to be a team

approach and great communication is key.

I know we have the right team of people,

hospital setup and equipment to do our best

job possible but clients need to be onboard

for, at times, a long, complicated, emotional

journey. You can absolutely guarantee

though we will always do our BEST for your

pet.

TORIN is a young Birman who presented

suddenly unwell 3 months ago - lethargic,

losing weight, vomiting and just not himself.

After a series of testing we deemed Torin

was suffering from

Acute Kidney Failure

due to a suspected

toxicity (possibly

Lilies). His creatinine

kidney enzyme level

was through the roof

, he was dehydrated

and we suspected

a bacterial UTI. He

was immediately

admitted for intensive

care treatment with

intravenous fluids

and supportive care

medications. He spent 2 weeks as a hospital

inpatient receiving Intravenous fluids, food

and medications were fed to him through

a feeding tube in his neck and every day

his devoted owners visited and spent time

cuddling, grooming him and nursing him

back to good health. Once home he was

continually checked many times a week to

make sure he wasn’t deteriorating. Torin

was an incredibly tolerant and an easy to

handle patient which was lucky as he was

jabbed with needles constantly, had oral

medications daily and had every test possible

including radiographs and ultrasounds.

In the end, Torin survived his kidney

failure attack. When we was very unwell

his creatinine reading was greater than

1202umol/L - now

it is normal at

187umol/L. Many

patients wouldn’t

recover from this.

He had incredibly

special owners who

completely trusted

and listened to our

recommendations

and supported us

in his recovery by

visiting often, which was what Torin needed.

Kim encouraged him to eat one bikkie at a

time from her phone and he got to wander

around a room not being caged all day.

Our hospital nursing team was absolutely

A1 fantastic at catering for all his needs,

respecting him, treating him gently and

spending lots of time giving him cuddles and

grooms. We were honest with Torin’s owners

about his prognosis and the time required

for him to start showing improvement. In

this case I believe the feeding tube was the

game changer as we could deliver all his

medications and nutritional requirements

without going near his

mouth and he could be

successfully managed at

home, with the people he

loved and trusted.

We all get super excited

when we get to catch

up with Torin. He’s like a

member of the family and

we all feel proud that we

played a part in getting

him home. Without fail he

urinates in my room on

arrival- not sure what this means exactly, but

then I get cuddles so I’m taking that as a win.

Nurse hopes to inspire others

• From page 1

That is why at 28-yearsold,

the former Villa Maria

College student has travelled

to Uganda three times

to make a difference to the

health of impoverished

families.

On Sunday she returned

to the city after six weeks

of working in remote villages

and areas of the slums

around Kampala – the

capital of Uganda.

“What I do here is

certainly very different to

what I do when working in

a hospital in a first world

country,” Miss Smit said.

On days when she travels

around Kampala with a

local doctor to provide

medical treatment and testing

for HIV and malaria,

she will see 100 patients in

a few hours.

Twice a week, she would

work alongside a charity

providing wound care and

treatment to a small number

of more than 10,000 children

living on the streets.

“There are many prevalent

health problems here

that I had never dealt with

at home, due to the living

conditions here of a large

number of the population,”

Miss Smit said.

Nicole Smit

But Miss Smit, and her

colleagues have managed

to make a difference.

Within a one-month

period, she delivered more

than 1500 preventative

de-worming tablets to

local school children to

minimise the risk of children

contracting a worm

infection.

Another major highlight

was helping to build a

medical centre in a small

village on the outskirts of

Kampala with three other

volunteers.

Miss Smit said one of the

biggest things she has taken

away from her experience

overseas is what is taken

for granted at home taught

by families and at schools

from a young age, which do

not have the same significance

here.

She said two examples of

this is the importance of

hand-washing and drinking

clean water each day to

stay hydrated.

“I don’t remember

specifically being taught

either of these things, it was

just part of growing up for

everyone around me,” Miss

Smit said.

She first travelled to

Uganda in 2017 after studying

a Bachelor of Nursing

and working as a registered

nurse for nearly three years

in the South Island Bone

Marrow Transplant Unit at

Christchurch Hospital.

Growing up, Miss

Smit never thought she

would one day become a

registered nurse but now

could not imagine doing

anything else.

In 2018, she was the first

recipient of the Villa Maria

Past Pupil’s Association

Mercy Grant and was

named one of Zonta International’s

100 Women of

Achievement last year.

“These two privileges

mean so much to me

because my dream is

that I might inspire even

one person to make their

small mark on the world,

which in turn could mean

the absolute world to one

person.”

Thousands raised for

Mairehau bike track

• By Bea Gooding

A SCHOOL fair has exceeded

organisers’ expectations after

raising nearly $30,000 towards

the construction of the Mairehau

bike track.

St Francis of Assisi Catholic

School hosted the family fun extravaganza

in early March to raise

funds for the bike track that will

be constructed on the school’s

grounds.

Fair organiser Heidi-Marie Parsonson

said it was a good chance

for the “fairly new” school to

work together on a large project.

“We were blown away by how

many people from our local community

joined us on the day. Our

children learned the importance

of serving and offering gifts to

help our community,” she said.

“We’re delighted because the

aim of the fair was to have a family

fun day and it was a chance to

work together. We believe that we

achieved in both of those areas.”

Nearly $2000 worth of raffle

prizes were up for grabs on the

day. Families were treated to a

variety of activities ranging from

soft archery, vintage car rides and

giant Twister, to international

cuisine and live entertainment.

The Mairehau bike track is a

community project and will be

open to all children in the area.

Local children also had a hand

in the track’s design with the

help of Kamo Marsh Landscape

Architects.

Described as a valuable resource

for Mairehau, the project

has encountered many setbacks

due to a lack of funding. But the

community were still determined

to put in the hard work and continue

fundraising and preparing

the area.

Said Mrs Parsonson: “We look

forward to sharing our bike track

which will be built using the

proceeds from the fair.

“It will benefit our community

providing a free, out-of-school

time activity which has been designed

to reflect the uniqueness

of Canterbury’s landscapes.”

The track’s design is a nod

towards Christchurch’s iconic

landscapes and is represented

throughout different elements

of the track such as a ‘Halswell

Quarry’ ramp area for scooters

and skateboards and a ‘Godley

Head/Crater Rim’ cycle track.

Pump track

delayed

• By Bea Gooding

INSTALLATION of the new

temporary pump track destined

for Shirley Community Reserve

has been delayed a second

time amid challenges with

international shipping.

Originally, the Shirley Pump

Track was to be installed by the

end of January, but delays with

the arrival of the pump track

sections impacted the project’s

timeline.

The city council hopes to open

the track by mid-April.

Said city council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge: “Challenges

with shipping have been due to

the track taking longer to get

onto the ship, and also due to the

longer port-clearing timeframes

related to the coronavirus.”

The 48-metre track is suitable

for bikes, skateboards and

scooters and is re-locatable. The

track itself is temporary because

it allows the area to be used for a

number of years while options are

kept open for future uses of the

space.

“We think this project will be

a positive one that encourages

people in the community to use

an under-utilised area,” said Mr

Rutledge.

NOR’WEST PROPERTY UPDATE

Regulations getting ‘too hard’

for many kiwi landlords

For thousands of Kiwi’s, buying a rental property, or

even several properties, is seen as the ideal way to build

up funds for retirement, or as a great tool to grow their

overall wealth.

Until recently, many of these landlords/investors (an

estimated 75%) have managed the property themselves

– finding tenants, collecting rent, and taking care of any

maintenance issues, which has served many owners

well over the years and up until recent times has been

relatively simple for those willing to put in the time and

effort.

But, with the raft of new regulations and red tape

being introduced to the rental sector by the government,

the days of landlords managing their own rental

property may be coming to an end. “Managing a rental

property is becoming increasingly difficult for kiwi

landlords, says Barry Ellis, owner of the Ray White

Strowan and Bishopdale and the associated property

management service. Many landlords are opting now to

pass over this responsibility to a well-known and trusted

property manager, mainly due to increased regulation

being difficult for an independent landlord to keep on

top of. I think many landlords have also reflected and

realised that managing a rental property is really an

asset management role, and in order to maximise the

return and manage that asset effectively, it makes sense

to have it done by an expert. As a landlord myself, I had

this realisation a few years ago”

Many landlords have heard about the introduction of

the Healthy Homes standards but not all landlords are

up to date on the extent of the requirements. The first

tranche of the new Healthy Homes Standards, which are

designed to provide drier, warmer homes for tenants,

were introduced on July 1, 2019. They required all rental

properties to have working smoke alarms, ceiling insulation

and floor insulation in houses with sub floors, and a

fixed heater in the living area.

Tenancy agreements had to include a signed statement

that the landlord would comply with the Healthy Homes

Standards by July this year, new and renewed tenancy

agreements will also have to include specific information

about the properties current level of compliance

with the standards.

By July 2021, the requirements become more specific;

all rental properties will need to have one or more fixed

heaters that will heat the main living area to at least 18

degrees C. Properties must be insulated to meet minimum

R-values for insulation; they must be well-ventilated,

including having ducted extractor fans in the kitchen

and bathroom; there must be adequate drainage on the

exterior of the house, and any gaps where draughts can

get through must be closed off.

“There will also be a lot of details, for example, around

the size of rooms and the number of windows to work

out what kind of heater is required, which will make it

hard for many landlords,” Barry says. “There is a lot of

information online, or you can ask a professional property

manager to work all that out for you, saving you

time and stress.”

Another key consideration, which many landlords

aren’t aware of Barry says, is that the Workplace Health

& Safety Act now applies to rental properties. “Owning

rentals is a business undertaking, so as such the landlord

is responsible for health and safety both for the tenants

and any contractors working at the property. But when a

property manager is involved, it becomes their responsibility,”

Barry says.

“Issues like asbestos being found in the ceiling or

methamphetamine contamination can create significant

problems, which a property manager will deal with.

We believe landlords should be more interested in the

yield they will get from their investment, rather than

worrying about any health and safety issues that could

arise. The property manager will ensure their client, the

landlord, remains compliant with all the regulations.”

Barry says Ray White applies particularly high

standards to its property management services, as a

group they manage more than 18,000 properties in New

Zealand.

“Unlike the real estate industry, property management

isn’t regulated, so anyone can set themselves up

as a property manager, even without any experience.

Ray White works at a much higher level of service and

ethics. Plus, we have access to more resources and more

people than most property management companies.”

Ray White has compiled a comprehensive, 55-page

Landlord Information Guide, which includes everything

a landlord needs to know about the regulations, as well

as other relevant advice, and is freely available. To get a

copy you can email rentals.inline@raywhite.com.

Local resident Bill Cranshaw is one of the company’s

property management clients, after first buying his

Casebrook rental property through Ray White Bishopdale.

“They’re a one-stop-shop really,” Bill says. “I

bought the property two and a half years ago through

them, and Mark Davison started managing it straight

away. He knew the market value for the rent, and it

was set accordingly. The first tenants stayed for a year,

then Mark found the new tenants. And he made sure

everything was OK with the property between tenants.

“He carries out regular inspections, takes photos and

sends through a comprehensive report. If there are any

problems with the property, the tenant calls Mark, not

us, and he is available 24/7.”

Mark has recently gone through the Healthy Homes

requirements with Bill, advising him of what needs to be

done.

“What I like about Mark’s service is that it gives us

peace of mind. I know that, hand on heart, he will do

the right thing for that property and the tenants. We

Ray White Strowan & Bishopdale property

management team with owner, Barry Ellis

find him very approachable, and he’s been very good for

us.”

Bill has also recommended Mark to friends, who have

now become his clients as well.

Currently, Christchurch is seeing a huge demand for

rentals, with the average time a property is available for

rent being less than two weeks.

“There are not enough properties available to meet

local demand, and good tenants are missing out,” Barry

says. “The new regulations have seen a lot of rentals

being sold, but with low interest rates and high demand

from renters, people investing in rental property can get

very good yields and good tenants, so we believe now is

a good time to invest in rental property. We’re helping

multiple clients right now assess their financial position

through our sister company Loan Market and then helping

them find the right property, determine the market

value for rent and managing it for them.”

Barry Ellis, Owner at Ray White Bishopdale and

Strowan is offering a free one hour rental review for

Canterbury landlords in March and April. “We’ll do

a market review of your rental, as well as discuss with

you the healthy homes standard and your requirements

and answer any other questions you may have” This

free consultation is simply about educating Canterbury

landlords and investors to make sure they’re prepared,

if they’re comfortable in continuing to manage their

property then that’s no worries, we’ll always be here to

provide support and advice along their journey when

they need us”

New motorway sparks action plan

St Albans

resident

Mark Wilson

discusses

action plans

in response

to the

Christchurch

Northern Corridor issues

SIR KERRY BURKE in The Star,

summed it up well. The St Albans

community is trying to make the

best out of a rotten inheritance.

The Northern Arterial mess we

find ourselves in today was created

decades ago has been rejected

multiple times, yet this outdated

transport project is somehow

just about to be open, with little

to no real concern of the effects

on people downstream.

Let’s be real about this, the

motorway will not relieve

congestion, it will merely create

more of it and in more areas,

whilst entrenching our car dependency.

Christchurch has the

highest per capita percentage of

cars in NZ, far exceeding Auckland,

Wellington and even the

American average.

In a decade where the worlds

view on transportation has moved

on from planning for single-occupant

vehicles the Christchurch

ACTION PLANS: St Albans residents feel concerns have been

largely ignored regarding the downstream effects of the

Christchurch Northern Corridor. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

City Council has not.

Up until this point, the community

has been very motivated

to submit to the city council and

have their say, and they have.

Initially, we thought the city

council listened. They published

submission feedback with statements

such as “three themes

have emerged from the feedback

we (CCC) received.”

1. People not cars,

2. Retaining a sense of community,

3. Safety, particularly for

walkers, cyclists, and school

children.

However, the final Downstream

Effect Management Plan puts cars

first and community last. The

outright dangerous cycle lanes and

footpaths are merely token gestures

with many that don’t comply

with the New Zealand Transport

Agency guidelines.

Intersections have been developed

to allow as many cars as

possible to be funnelled through

St Albans. A seven-lane monster

on Cranford St is an example of

this. Resident’s accessibility to

properties on arterial and local

roads are now dangerous and

severely compromised.

In all honesty, the feedback

from the community has been

ignored, the important decisions

had already been made years

ago, the communities downstream

are just collateral damage.

This is the backdrop to the

last two community meetings we

have held.

Our community is focussed

on solutions not ineffective,

outdated mitigation.

The local community through

the St Albans resident’s association

have been proactive in collaborative

community planning

for many years, we intend to

continue this tradition. The aim

of the most recent meeting was

to get all involved collaboratively.

We also had an expert in

community collaborative planning

speak to us, she showed

a number of examples all over

the world where communities

have responded to the negative

effects of badly managed traffic

planning, from Vancouver to

Bangladesh, Brazil to Tokyo.

Key points taken on board by

the residents were that streets

can be taken back by the community.

At the end of the night

we had three very clear draft

plans, with a growing core group

of people focused on the major

areas of concern:

• PT and other TDM measures

needed to reduce traffic from

the NArT, and local areas

• The unsafe situation for

residents living on Arterials

entering/exiting properties

due to road widening and

footpath narrowing

• Residents inconvenience

from turning restrictions,

making locals rat runners

• Pedestrian and Cycle advocacy

within the community,

on all roads, not just the

Papanui Parallel.

Finally to again respond to Sir

Kerry Burke, yes we are trying

to make the best of this situation

not of our making, but we all

need to think is this acceptable

in an age where we are declaring

climate emergencies left, right

and centre, yet this lemon of a

traffic plan is being left to continue

its destructive path.

• Please contact SARA

community association if you

want to be involved in any of the

action plans or to be put in touch

with your Street Networks.

Northern Christchurch residents

packed the Belfast Rugby Club

last week to have their say at my

public meeting with Environment

Canterbury over an application that

has been made to store 40,000

bales of waste on a site in Blakes

Road, Belfast.

Residents were quick to get in

touch with me after reading in

the media about the application

and told me they were worried

to hear there might be no public

consultation process for the

application but that approval could

potentially be granted within 15

days.

They asked me to help them get

their voices out to Environment

Canterbury.

Working together, we were able to

call a public meeting on Monday, 9

March in the Belfast Rugby Football

Club. I invited ECan to the meeting

to answer residents’ questions and

concerns, and residents and I did

a letterbox drop to advertise the

meeting.

About 200 residents living around

the proposed site turned out for the

meeting to let ECan know that the

community wants the application to

go out for public notification.

I was honoured to represent

National’s Canterbury MPs at

the remembrance service in

Christchurch on Sunday as

we stood together for the first

anniversary of the Christchurch

shootings. In the days after those

tragic events, my children and I

joined our fellow Cantabrians in

leaving flowers and messages at

Hagley Park and we welcomed the

opportunity on Sunday to again

stand together and say that these

acts do not reflect our beliefs as

a nation that supports diversity.

It has been a poignant time for

Cantabrians, with the memorial

service last month commemorating

the ninth anniversary of the

Canterbury earthquakes. These

events have left us united as a

region and a nation.

Amelia breaks national record

SPORT

THE CONVEYER belt of

cycling talent in Canterbury

looks set to continue with

Avonside High School’s Amelia

Sykes.

Amelia, who won national

under-16 titles in 2019 in the

team sprint and team pursuit

led by Lincoln High School’s

Jenna Borthwick last year, has

excelled in her own right at

the national age-group track

championships in Invercargill

last week.

The under-17 rider stepped

up in the 2000m individual

pursuit final and in doing so

broke the national record set

last year by Borthwick, who has

this year progressed to make

the New Zealand team for the

junior world championships.

Qualifying in 2min 30.981sec

and lowered that to 2min

28.220sec to win the final,

half a second under Jenna’s

record.

“Last year I was in the team

sprint with Jenna and learned

from that. This year I had full

confidence and I prepared

well,” she said.

“I was going for that record

and gave it everything. The

TALENT: Avonside High School’s Amelia Sykes broke

the 2000m individual pursuit record at the national

age-group track championships in Invercargill

last two years have been so

phenomenal for me and I’m

looking forward to the races

coming up and hopefully some

more records.”

Amelia said she learned a lot

from the workshops

and racing in the

national track series

last year that she has been

able to put into practice with

her coach this year.

Stedman

on track for

Paralympics

• By Jacob Page

HILLMORTON paralympic

sprinter, William Stedman

has continued his progression

towards the Tokyo Paralympics

with three strong results at

the national track and field

championships at Nga Puna

Wai.

The 20-year-old won the

senior men’s long jump with a

best effort of 5.68m and then

won the 400m in 55.22sec and

the 200m in 25.21sec.

The former Middleton

Grange School student was the

youngest member of the New

Zealand Paralympic team four

years ago at just 16.

Stedman, who suffers from

cerebral palsy, won bronze

medals in the T36 400m and

800m events.

Stedman said in spite of

strong winds, he was happy

with his efforts, particularly in

the long jump.

“That’s the best I’ve gone in

the long jump,” he said.

He said there was more pressure

on him ahead of Tokyo because

he was such an unknown

four years ago but he believes he

is capable of handling the added

scrutiny.

•The Paralympics will be

held from August 25 to

September 6.

Age no barrier for

Burnside tennis group

• By Jacob Page

A GROUP of octogenarians

who have spent more than 440

years combined playing time at

the Burnside Park Tennis Club

have no interest in giving the

game away any time soon.

The 15 men and women are

all aged between 80 and 88 and

are believed to be the oldest

regular tennis playing group of

their kind in Christchurch. They

meet every Tuesday and Thursday

morning all year round.

They have spent a combined

443 years playing at the club.

The group play about 50 other

senior players over the age of 50.

Club spokesperson Allanah

James said the group were an inspiration

to everyone on court.

“I play with them and against

them and they run me round.

“I’ve just retired and I’m in my

early 60s and they’re all just so

inspirational,” she said.

“They are what I want to be

like when I am their age.

“It’s an endorsement for staying

active later in life.

Mrs James said the group

played 90min of tennis but most

of them turned up for a warmup

30min before matches start.

“They are so precise with their

shots, she said. “They know

where to place the ball to make

you run around that’s for sure.

“We felt it was time to celebrate

them for their continued

contribution to our club.”

One of the group, Monica

Devine, is the grandmother of

current big-hitting White Ferns

cricket captain Sophie Devine.

The two oldest are married

couple Peter, 88, and Adrienne

Rowe, 87.

Peter has been playing at the

club for 18 years and Adrienne

has been a club member for 34

years.

The longest playing member

of the over 80s is Ellen Harris

who has been playing at

Burnside for 55 years.

CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’ High

School touch rugby player Luca

Tracey has been selected in the

New Zealand under-16 team to

tour Australia.

The 14-year-old year 11 student,

who lives in Sumner, was part of

the Canterbury under-16 team

which won the national title in

Auckland in January after going

through the tournament undefeated.

Luca is also the CBHS under 15

sevens captain who are the current

South Island champions.

The team will meet for a training

camp in Auckland in July

before playing in the Australian

State Championships on the Sunshine

Coast in September.

“They had selectors at all our

games at nationals but when I

found out I made it, I was quite

surprised given to make it because

I am quite young for the grade.

The playmaker said he took up

the sport socially five years ago

and has progressed through the

ranks ever since.

“I’ve always enjoyed running

fast and since I do track and

field as well, the skills help both

sports,’’ he said.

He said both sevens and touch

allow him to play a similar style of

game in each code.

“You have to be elusive, think

on your feet and make the right

decisions.”

He said he would continue

training in his own time over the

winter before the first camp to

make sure he was ready to go.

Coronavirus

How to protect yourself and others

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus

called coronavirus. There are simple steps you can take to protect you and your family/whānau.

Symptoms of COVID-19

The symptoms of COVID-19 are:

•a cough

•a high temperature (at least 38°C)

•shortness of breath.

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are

similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

However, infections with mild symptoms such as cold-like symptoms or no symptoms

are likely, but it’s not known how common this is.

How to protect yourself and others

•Cough or sneeze into your elbow or by covering your mouth and nose with tissues.

•Put used tissues in the bin or a bag immediately.

•Wash your hands with soap and water often.

•Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

•Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

•Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects, such as doorknobs.

•Stay home if you feel unwell and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

NOR’WEST NEWS

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

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

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

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or 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,

HIP PAIN

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment

you should know that it will work for you.

Call them before the end of March and

save $20.00 on that treatment.

Physical Sense Gym and 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 joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Grape seeds shown to have

remarkable health benefits!

According to researchers grape seeds

may hold the potential to treat and

prevent many devastating disorders.

The seeds have been found to contain

many powerful antioxidant such as

resveratrol, catechins, epicatechins,

proanthocyanadins and anthocyanins

as well as other nutrients that have

been shown to support the natural

healing process and even slow the

aging process.

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has

been shown to reduce inflammation

and pain, increase cellular energy,

protect protein structures and

increase collagen production. The

powerful antioxidants in GSE can

tone and strengthen the blood

vessels, improve blood flow making

it valuable for circulatory disorders

of all kinds, including varicose veins,

haemorrhoids, hardening of the

arteries and impaired blood flow to

the brain. It is excellent for most skin

conditions because of the increase

of blood flow to the skin tissue thru

allowing more nutrients to the tissue

cells and better waste removal from

the cells. As well as this it supports

collagen production. For these reasons

many people report the skin looks

more healthy, smoother and with

better elasticity when using GSE.

GSE offers a natural alternative

for many people with hypertension

(High Blood Pressure). Higher than

normal blood pressure puts more

stress on organs and can lead to

atherosclerosis (hardening of the

arteries) and therefore increased risk

of heart disease (The heart has to

work harder to supply blood around

the body and may become enlarged

and eventually fail) and strokes.

Recent analysis of 16 randomized

studies on people with elevated blood

pressure found GSE to significantly

lower both systolic and diastolic blood

pressure but had no effect on people

with normal blood pressure. Animal

studies have shown GSE to improve

heart function, reduce damage caused

by heart attacks and prevent the

formation of foam cells that play a role

in the formation of arterial plaque.

A growing number of studies show

that GSE has powerful anticancer

properties in both the prevention and

treatment of many types of cancer.

Studies show arthritis of every type

may be greatly improved by GSE. GSE

also helps protect the body against

damage caused by diabetes while

helping balance blood sugar levels.

Another area GSE is proving highly

beneficial is the brain. It has been

shown to protect brain cells while

stimulating the formation of healthy

new brain cells. It may prove vital in

the treatment of brain disorders like

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

There are numerous studies on

GSE that show it can help support

our good health and prevent many

degenerative diseases. Further

detailed information is available

from the Natural Health Advisers at

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy,

101 Seaview Road, New Brighton and

PH: 388-5757. They are always happy

to help!

Your Smile is your business card

A smile is one of the first facial features to

catch a person’s eye. How does your smile

stand up? What colour are your teeth? Are

they off colour, tarnished or yellowing? Many

people refrain from smiling because of teeth

discolouration.

Sparklewhite to the rescue. Their whitening

system is backed by satisfied customers,

testimonials, likes and statistics to prove their

simple, one to two time whitening program

accomplishes the goal.

Don’t be embarrassed by your teeth. Everyone

knows the purpose of teeth is to mechanically

break down food items by cutting and

crushing them in order to prepare them to

be swallowed. Your teeth are the first point of

entry for beverages as well.

Are you aware coffee and smoking tarnish and

yellow tooth enamel. However, the two biggest

culprits of yellowing teeth are none-other than

tea and red wine, berries & coloured veges. Go

figure.

Tea & Red Wine stains occur when tannins

in both of them build up in the tooth enamel.

Tannins are organic substances found in

plants. Tannins in tea and wine can lead to

stains on teeth. In fact, some black teas can

even cause more tooth discoloration than even

black coffee!

There is an answer. Teeth whitening, but not

just any teeth whitening system will work. The

kind at the supermarket or the ones which the

pharmacies stock, are not strong enough to

give the quick results consumers are looking

for as they have a restriction on the strength of

peroxide sold over the counter.

Going to the dentist is more expensive,

however, there is a Certified tooth whitening

ADVERTORIAL

specialist in Christchurch, Sparklewhite Teeth,

who offer Cosmetic Teeth Whitening. Anyone

age sixteen and up can have the procedure

done. They also do couples whitening.

Whether a couple or friends, you can have

your session at the same time, in different

rooms of course, and get a discounted rate for

two!

The best part of the success rate of this service

is it only takes one or two times depending

on the assessment. Simple. Then you can

smile with confidence and never have to be

embarrassed by your smile again. Vouchers

available.

HOME & HEATING

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

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, ground moisture barrier.

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.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

ATTACK RISING DAMP

What makes a great

heat transfer system?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor, not to

skim the across the ceilings. All components

are good quality - designed to operate for

years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles

and diffusers. HTUs improve energy

efficiency in your house, as you are

using excess heat. They have low power

consumption - only 80watts for the three

room system. Circulating air through

the house also reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires

2-4 kw of heating, yet appliances such as

log burners generate heat in the region

of 10 -20kw. This leaves an excess of 8

-16kw of heat which sits at high level

in the heated room, usually above door

level.

Heat transfer units work best where

very hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer

near the ceiling. So heat pumps, which

circulate warm air around the room with

no layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very well:

The heat pump stops operating once the heat

from the fire has heated the room, and the

heat transfer kicks in above this point, once

there is a layer of hot air at the ceiling.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as any

other ventilation requirements.
