Owners worried about<br />

future of Airbnb in city<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Airbnb<br />

owners are concerned about<br />

the future of home-share<br />

accommodation as the city<br />

council mulls changes to its<br />

rules for short-term<br />

accommodation.<br />

Proposed changes to the City<br />

Plan would allow whole unit<br />

listings in some areas but not<br />

others, and would not allow listings<br />

in multi-unit dwellings or<br />

on rear sections.<br />

Another option on the table<br />

enables listings up to a specified<br />

number of days, such as 60, 90 or<br />

120 days per year.<br />

City council head of planning<br />

and strategic transport David<br />

Griffiths confirmed a council<br />

committee would ultimately<br />

decide what to do with the proposals<br />

next month.<br />

But Christchurch Holiday<br />

Homes director Sue Harrison,<br />

who manages homes in<br />

Riccarton, Ilam and Avonhead,<br />

said there were fears a change<br />

would “put big hotel profits<br />

ahead of what’s best for the<br />

city.”<br />

“For many of us, these rules<br />

would mean putting away our<br />

welcome mats for good.<br />

“We can’t pretend it hasn’t<br />

been hurtful at times when our<br />

intentions have been wilfully<br />

misrepresented. We’re members<br />

of this community and we care<br />

very deeply about Christchurch,”<br />

Harrison said.<br />

In residential zones, singleroom<br />

listings with the owner<br />

present were permitted as “bed<br />

and breakfasts” under the District<br />

Plan rules, allowing up to<br />

six guests to stay a maximum of<br />

90 days.<br />

Tucked away down its own driveway this post quake built home will be a delight<br />

to view. Modern homes in St Martins are a rare find indeed and are even rarer to<br />

come to the market.<br />

My client has decided to downsize so it is time to let a new owner enjoy<br />

the benefits of modern living. Warm and inviting this home offers 3 double<br />

bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and two living areas. The master bedroom is particularly<br />

spacious with an ensuite and walk in robe that are sure to delight.<br />

Built in 2015, you have the security of a post-quake build and the convenience of<br />

an easy care section only minutes from the local shopping and an easy drive to<br />

the city. You could lock your car away in the double garage and just use the public<br />

transport or hop on your bike and enjoy all the Port Hills has to offer.<br />

Problem trees not welcome<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

ISSUES deriving from honey<br />

locust trees in Avonhead<br />

continue to cause headaches<br />

among residents.<br />

The community of Kedleston<br />

Drive and neighbouring<br />

streets have wanted the trees<br />

gone for as long as 30 years<br />

due to the “mess” its seed pods<br />

create on roadsides, gardens,<br />

gutters and footpaths.<br />

Due to provisions in the city<br />

council’s district plan which<br />

protected the trees, residents<br />

were not permitted to remove<br />

any themselves - unless they<br />

forked out $1800 for a resource<br />

consent.<br />

The city council only<br />

removed trees that were in<br />

poor condition, but the honey<br />

locust trees did not fit that category,<br />

and its “seasonal” seed<br />

pod production was viewed as<br />

a “limited issue.”<br />

Jill Irving lives adjacent to<br />

Kedleston Drive and vehemently<br />

disagreed with that<br />

assessment as the issue appeared<br />

during several months<br />

throughout the year.<br />

“That is totally untrue. The<br />

seed pods begin falling in<br />

April and they continue to fall<br />

until September, even until<br />

October or later,” said Irving.<br />

“They fall spasmodically,<br />

they blow into other streets,<br />

grass berms and footpaths<br />

outside some properties<br />

which is a disgrace.”<br />

She said some residents<br />

were despairing<br />

over the “pod invasion,”<br />

which also posed safety<br />

issues, such as the incident<br />

where a cyclist<br />

crashed last month after<br />

slipping on the pods.<br />

“Those who keep<br />

sweeping up the pods<br />

in front of their houses often<br />

finish up having their frontage<br />

littered again by their neighbour’s<br />

pods which blow into<br />

Steffan<br />

Thomas<br />

the wind,” she said.<br />

“Some trees are now bare<br />

and some have hundreds<br />

on them. Strong<br />

winds don’t blow them<br />

all off at once.”<br />

The city council had<br />

no scheduled sweeping<br />

of footpaths and only<br />

attended if there were<br />

safety concerns.<br />

Attempts to prune<br />

the trees back as far as<br />

it would allow also did<br />

not prove to be successful,<br />

which was why the residents<br />

were lobbying to have new<br />

trees planted instead.<br />

Catherine<br />

Chu<br />

ISSUES: Kedleston Drive<br />

residents are fed-up with<br />

the mess honey locust<br />

trees are making.<br />

Irving also urged the city<br />

council to send letters to all<br />

residents to remind them of<br />

their responsibility to keep<br />

their berms and footpaths<br />

“free of litter.”<br />

Said the city council transport<br />

operations manager<br />

Steffan Thomas: “Council’s<br />

replacement programme is<br />

for the removal of trees in<br />

poor condition – these are<br />

healthy, established trees and<br />

prioritising it would result in<br />

other trees more in need of<br />

replacement being delayed or<br />

not replaced.<br />

“Council does clear<br />

road – we will investigate<br />

increasing the frequency<br />

during this time. Council has<br />

also approached community<br />

organisations to assist with<br />

clean up on private property.”<br />

‘Aunties’ helping vulnerable women<br />

Neighbourhood<br />

groups, organisations<br />

and charities play<br />

an important part in<br />

keeping communities<br />

supported in a<br />

number of ways. The<br />

Christchurch Aunties<br />

chairwoman Heather<br />

Milne speaks to Bea<br />

Gooding about how<br />

they help vulnerable<br />

women and children<br />

experiencing family<br />

violence<br />

Walk me through what<br />

services The Christchurch<br />

Aunties provide and how it<br />

came to be what it is today.<br />

We’re a network of 4000<br />

people who provide practical<br />

support and donations for<br />

women and children in<br />

Christchurch, Selwyn District,<br />

and Waimakariri District, who<br />

have experienced family violence<br />

and vulnerability. We work with<br />

staff at about 11 organisations<br />

(such as women’s refuges), who<br />

tell us what they need for their<br />

clients, then we get it to them by<br />

mobilising our network.<br />

We regularly provide toiletries,<br />

SUPPORT: The Christchurch Aunties founder Heather Milne, who provides crucial<br />

assistance for women and children experiencing family violence. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

security items and emergency<br />

trips funding. When women<br />

are setting up new homes after<br />

relocating, we provide new or<br />

quality second-hand furniture<br />

and bedding. Sourcing and<br />

donating baby gear is another<br />

area that we excel at.<br />

In addition to those regular<br />

requests, we sometimes receive<br />

client-specific donation requests<br />

such as gadgets and weighted<br />

blankets for children with<br />

behavioural or communication<br />

issues, quality sports gear,<br />

birthday cakes, and vouchers for<br />

local attractions.<br />

The Christchurch Aunties<br />

started in 2014 when Jackie Clark<br />

in Auckland (who founded The<br />

Aunties movement up there) put<br />

me in touch with a woman who<br />

was moving to Christchurch for<br />

her safety.<br />

It became apparent that<br />

there were many people in the<br />

community who wanted to<br />

help, and that there was a way<br />

to harness social media and<br />

business connections to get<br />

results. This was a time when I<br />

also realised how much learning<br />

I had (and still have) to do about<br />

family violence, discrimination,<br />

and unconscious bias.<br />

In 2017, I gathered a group<br />

of people around me to be the<br />

board of The Christchurch<br />

Aunties. We set the wheels in<br />

motion with systems, policy,<br />

communications, and finally,<br />

charitable status earlier this year.<br />

It’s been an amazing journey so<br />

far.<br />

What does it mean to be an<br />

“auntie?”<br />

Anyone, anywhere can be<br />

an “auntie.’’ The only rules are<br />

that you need to be kind, and<br />

not judge people. That last bit<br />

is striking because it’s human<br />

nature to judge – we’re all guilty<br />

of it. We have Christchurch<br />

Aunties who regularly donate<br />

toiletries and new bedding.<br />

Others have set up regular<br />

payments into our account. We<br />

have a team of volunteers who<br />

get hands-on and help us move<br />

things, do administrative tasks,<br />

mend furniture, test electrical<br />

gear, and tidy our storage.<br />

There are also hundreds of<br />

Christchurch aunties who share<br />

information about us and get<br />

us in touch with other donors.<br />

All of this support is part of the<br />

giant jigsaw that makes it so<br />

successful.<br />

Thursday <strong>August</strong> <strong>13</strong> <strong>2020</strong> 5<br />

and children experiencing violence<br />

Why is an organisation like<br />

The Christchurch Aunties<br />

important for the community?<br />

The immediate importance<br />

of The Christchurch Aunties<br />

is that we relieve the mental<br />

load for women and children<br />

experiencing family violence<br />

and vulnerability, and we also<br />

relieve the mental load of the staff<br />

who are caring for them. Our<br />

donations go towards keeping<br />

people warm, safe, and feeling<br />

valued.<br />

Another important role<br />

we have is to cultivate the<br />

nurturing and generous side<br />

of the Canterbury community<br />

that we’ve seen so much of in<br />

the past 10 years. People really<br />

want to help and learn, but don’t<br />

always know how. So we gently<br />

introduce people to the concept<br />

of volunteering and support, and<br />

how to donate effectively so that<br />

recipients feel respected.<br />

What are the major issues<br />

currently impacting those who<br />

you serve, and why?<br />

The issue that we’ve seen<br />

recently impacting families is<br />

Covid-19 and the lockdown.<br />

This situation became like a<br />

pressure cooker of social isolation<br />

and financial stress for many.<br />

Children were home from school<br />

and saw the violence happening.<br />

Solo parents struggled to get<br />

supplies as they couldn’t leave<br />

their children at home, but<br />

also couldn’t take them to the<br />

supermarket.<br />

In the days before level 4,<br />

we frantically gave out all our<br />

supplies of toiletries, activities,<br />

and fuel/supermarket vouchers<br />

to organisations – not knowing<br />

when we’d be able to supply them<br />

again.<br />

Luckily we were granted<br />

essential status, but the increased<br />

demand for basic donations<br />

of toiletries, security gear, and<br />

vouchers have continued.<br />

Canterbury has functioned<br />

with a post-traumatic stress<br />

disorder faultline running under<br />

us since 2010. So although the<br />

lockdown was the catalyst for<br />

recent spikes in family violence,<br />

there has been an increase for<br />

some time.<br />

The social workers and support<br />

staff who we see working with<br />

the clients and families have dealt<br />

with the increase for so long,<br />

that I think it’s become the ‘new<br />

normal’. They do an incredible<br />

job.<br />

What are some<br />

misconceptions about family<br />

violence and vulnerability that<br />

the average person may not<br />

know about? Why is this the<br />

case?<br />

There is a very common<br />

assumption that family violence<br />

happens to people in other<br />

neighbourhoods and to other<br />

families. A very mistaken belief<br />

is that family violence is only<br />

experienced by people who are<br />

struggling financially. For a long<br />

time, family violence wasn’t<br />

talked about in New Zealand, so<br />

I think a lot of misconceptions<br />

sprung up simply from ignorance<br />

– and humans are reluctant to<br />

change their thought patterns.<br />

There are Christchurch aunties<br />

out there who have experienced<br />

violence and vulnerability in<br />

the past or have supported their<br />

family or friends through the<br />

system. These people are from<br />

diverse backgrounds and cultures.<br />

They are from all walks of life.<br />

Moving forward, how can<br />

organisations and society better<br />

support those experiencing<br />

these hardships and the<br />

reduction of harm within<br />

homes? And why?<br />

As a society, we can’t make<br />

any real impact until we stop<br />

and listen. I urge people to get<br />

educated on family violence and<br />

poverty in New Zealand. Be<br />

open-minded and learn about<br />

your unconscious bias. Listen to<br />

WESTERN NEWS<br />

Val loves the community at Margaret Stoddart<br />

Val says living at<br />

Margaret<br />

Stoddart<br />

Retirement Village means<br />

she is part of a wonderful<br />

community and she can also<br />

spend time following her<br />

craft and leisure pursuits.<br />

Her daughters helped her<br />

choose Margaret Stoddart<br />

and the sunny room in the<br />

village’s resthome that she<br />

now calls home. It was a<br />

great choice for both Val<br />

and her family. She moved<br />

into the cosy village just<br />

a few weeks before the<br />

upheaval of the February<br />

2011 Canterbury earthquake.<br />

For the past nine years<br />

the location of the village<br />

has given her many options,<br />

one of her daughters, Robyn,<br />

lives in Rolleston and can<br />

easily come by and visit her<br />

and she often chooses to go<br />

shopping along Riccarton<br />

Road and the nearby<br />

Westfield mall.<br />

The boutique village is<br />

close to the many amenities<br />

that the Riccarton retail<br />

area, Hagley Park and the<br />

nearby central city provide.<br />

There are lots of cafés and<br />

restaurants within walking<br />

distance.<br />

Val loves knitting, toy<br />

and craft making, reading<br />

books, solving jigsaw and<br />

other puzzles. With fellow<br />

residents, Val loves to<br />

partake in regular social<br />

events including Ryman<br />

Healthcare’s Triple A<br />

exercise programme and<br />

the village get-togethers<br />

that include regular Happy<br />

Hours and playing housie<br />

on Fridays. There are also<br />

weekly excursions in the<br />

village van to look forward to.<br />

“We go to Tai Tapu quite<br />

a lot and have an ice cream.<br />

We go to New Brighton,<br />

Sumner or Lyttelton, just<br />

around and about,” Val says.<br />

“One time we went to<br />

Orana Wildlife Park. That<br />

was good. We’ve been on<br />

a couple of day trips to the<br />

Weka Pass Railway line up<br />

north (near Waipara).”<br />

She and her three<br />

brothers were brought up<br />

in the family residence in<br />

Spreydon, and Val says she<br />

stayed living at home until<br />

she married Joe, having met<br />

him on a “blind date” at a<br />

local social dance.<br />

The couple remained<br />

in Christchurch for a while,<br />

with Val raising daughters<br />

Robyn and Dianne (now<br />

living in Wellington) and<br />

later working in a Sydenham<br />

clothing factory. Joe worked<br />

as a boilermaker as well as<br />

helping do the reclamation<br />

and construction work on<br />

Cashin Quay in Lyttelton.<br />

The couple later moved to<br />

Picton and together ran a<br />

motel, which Val said was<br />

a very busy business.<br />

When Joe passed away and<br />

she had her own medical<br />

issues to deal with her<br />

Life’s good for Val at Margaret Stoddart village in Riccarton.<br />

daughters urged her to<br />

move back to Christchurch<br />

and Margaret Stoddart.<br />

From her resthome<br />

room, she enjoys going<br />

down to the dining room to<br />

have meals with resident<br />

friends. Margaret Stoddart<br />

village provides the very<br />

best of resthome care as<br />

well as assisted living in<br />

serviced apartments and<br />

independent living.<br />

The village amenities<br />

include a bar, a dining room,<br />

and a hair salon.<br />

Village Manager Merrin<br />

Jack says residents love<br />

the cosy feel and relaxed<br />

atmosphere within one of<br />

ADVERTISEMENT<br />

Ryman’s more boutique<br />

villages. While Margaret<br />

Stoddart is tucked away<br />

from the hustle and bustle of<br />

city life, it is also part of the<br />

Riccarton community and<br />

newcomers immediately feel<br />

at home.<br />

People often tell us they ‘feel the difference’ when they visit<br />

a Ryman care centre. Where care is customised to suit your<br />

needs, and where nurses and carers go above and beyond<br />

every day to provide the best of care to our residents.<br />

With our resthome you can relax knowing that if your needs<br />

change, we can continue to look after you.<br />

Located in Riccarton, close to the shops and Hagley<br />

Park, Margaret Stoddart Village is named in honour<br />

of a pioneering Cantabrian who set the standard<br />

for others to follow.<br />

Concerns outlined to community boards<br />

• From page 1<br />

Policies to restrict nonresidential<br />

activities in residential<br />

zones made consent more<br />

difficult to obtain.<br />

Said Harrison: “We don’t<br />

support discriminating between<br />

hosted and unhosted<br />

short-term rentals. Whether a<br />

host is present or not doesn’t<br />

form a sound basis for regulation<br />

as there’s many variables<br />

involved to police this.”<br />

Airbnb owners did not support<br />

the proposals due to the<br />

growing need for self-catering<br />

homes for groups and families<br />

that many motels, hotels and<br />

hostels did not cater for.<br />

They have outlined their<br />

Meeting the needs of the south-west area<br />

THE CITY council and<br />

community board have been<br />

working hard to get the<br />

revised Annual Plan sorted<br />

post-Covid-19.<br />

We appreciate the efforts<br />

submitters have put into this<br />

process also. I’m pleased to see<br />

that the South West Aquatic<br />

Leisure Centre, library, and<br />

service centre is still on track<br />

to be opened in 2022.<br />

The Halswell Junction Rd<br />

extension through to<br />

Waterloo Business Park is still<br />

happening but with a small delay.<br />

concerns to community boards<br />

across the city.<br />

They favoured the option<br />

which removed restrictions on<br />

whole unit listings and treated<br />

home-share accommodation as<br />

a residential activity.<br />

“This option allows for<br />

better regulation by registering<br />

homes. All other options leave<br />

you with an impossible compliance<br />

issue.<br />

“If you restrict self-contained<br />

homes, visitors will limit<br />

their time in Christchurch,”<br />

Harrison said.<br />

They supported a nationwide<br />

approach to regulations which<br />

did not “geographically distort<br />

the market,” and a mandatory<br />

The surge in growth in<br />

Halswell is exciting and challenging,<br />

the board need to be<br />

proactive to meet the needs of<br />

these growing communities of<br />

the south-west.<br />

Transport issues are always<br />

to the fore at present with the<br />

Southern Motorway nearing<br />

code of conduct for owners,<br />

managers and guests enforceable<br />

under a three-strike rule.<br />

AirDNA data shows<br />

Christchurch hosts earned<br />

about $50 million between<br />

<strong>August</strong> 2018 and 2019.<br />

Griffiths said some regulations<br />

could be approached<br />

from a nationwide perspective.<br />

“A nationwide code of<br />

practice would be possible for<br />

short-term accommodation,<br />

but would require agreement of<br />

all listing platform providers,<br />

council and other regulatory<br />

agencies,” he said.<br />

“However, a nationwide code<br />

of practice could not be the<br />

only regulatory mechanism in<br />

From the board<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board<br />

completion.<br />

Riccarton is also a focus<br />

with residential intensification<br />

along with public transport<br />

priority along Riccarton Rd.<br />

New and relocated schools<br />

are also a focus to address pedestrian<br />

safety, vehicle speed<br />

reductions, and safe routes to<br />

spite of this being a preferred<br />

option. City council has responsibilities<br />

under the Building<br />

Act, Resource Management<br />

Act and other legislation that<br />

the code may not address.’’<br />

The Government could also<br />

issue objectives and policies to<br />

ensure a consistent approach to<br />

managing the issue, such as the<br />

use of land and its effects that<br />

all councils must enforce.<br />

The city council will present<br />

a report to the Urban Development<br />

and Transport Committee<br />

outlining recommendations<br />

on a preferred option<br />

including whether or not to<br />

notify changes to the District<br />

Plan next month.<br />

schools plans.<br />

We are being proactive<br />

in working with police,<br />

neighbourhood support and<br />

community patrols to address<br />

an increase in crime in the<br />

Halswell/Wigram area. We<br />

suggest that people lock their<br />

garages, doors and windows<br />

at 9pm.<br />

Finally, on behalf of our<br />

board, I wish to say a “big<br />

thank you” to everyone for the<br />

control they put in place during<br />

the Covid-19 lockdown.<br />

CASSIE SCAIFE had a wide<br />

smile as she absorbed the news<br />

that she’d been named Ryman<br />

Healthcare’s nurse of the year.<br />

It was no small achievement<br />

– Christchurch’s Ryman<br />

Healthcare is New Zealand’s<br />

largest retirement village operator<br />

and employs 620 nurses<br />

at 36 villages in NZ and in<br />

Australia.<br />

Anthony Wilding Retirement<br />

Village has been a big<br />

part of life for the Halswell<br />

registered nurse.<br />

She first started at the village<br />

as a 17-year-old school student,<br />

working in the laundry<br />

and then the kitchen teams<br />

when it first opened in 2007.<br />

Scaife first trained as a<br />

paramedic in Wellington after<br />

leaving school, filling in her<br />

time with shifts as a caregiver<br />

at Rita Angus Retirement Village<br />

while she was studying.<br />

It was while working as an<br />

ambulance officer that she<br />

attended an emergency and<br />

realised that her destiny lay<br />

in working as an aged-care<br />

nurse.<br />

“We went on a callout to<br />

look after an older woman<br />

who was in trouble. It was<br />

when I was caring for her that<br />

I realised that looking after<br />

DELIGHT: Ryman Healthcare’s nurse of the year Cassie<br />

Scaife (left) with Anthony Wilding Retirement village<br />

caregivers Ubbie Kooma, Raziya Nisha and Sharma<br />

Vasu.<br />

older people was what I really<br />

wanted to do,” said Scaife.<br />

“I think my workmates were<br />

surprised, but that’s what I<br />

wanted to do.’’<br />

She returned to Christchurch<br />

to begin a three-year<br />

nursing course at CPIT and<br />

later returned to where it all<br />

started at Anthony Wilding to<br />

work as a registered nurse on<br />

the afternoon team.<br />

No one was more delighted<br />

with her win than her mother<br />

and sister, who were on hand<br />

for her awards night celebration<br />

along with daughters<br />

Phoebe, 5, and Hazel, 3.<br />

“It’s an amazing place and<br />

team to work with,’’ said<br />

Scaife.<br />

“You never hear them complain<br />

no matter what is going<br />

on. They just get on and put in<br />

the effort to care for everyone<br />

and to do their best for them.’’<br />

She was also grateful for<br />

Jeannie Sales, Anthony<br />

Wilding’s clinical manager,<br />

and Sharon Armstrong,<br />

village manager, for their<br />

backing over the years.<br />

Said Scaife: “Jeannie has<br />

been a great mentor. She’s always<br />

there and makes time for<br />

those long conversations you<br />

need about the lessons you’re<br />

learning and the problems that<br />

come up.<br />

“She told me early on to<br />

listen carefully and to ask the<br />

right questions to guide conversations,<br />

particularly with<br />

families.<br />

“It’s been great advice and<br />

something I try to pass on.<br />

“Sharon’s always efficient<br />

and supportive, no matter<br />

what the problem is.’’<br />

Scaife was brought up in<br />

Leeston and a lot of residents<br />

are retired farmers from the<br />

district.<br />

“I’ve grown up knowing<br />

them and their families so<br />

there’s a real community feel<br />

to what we do,” she said.<br />

“Talking to them, seeing<br />

that they are happy and<br />

knowing their quirks is all<br />

part of the job.’’<br />

sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape and ready to deal with these<br />

hazards.<br />

are in working order, and to ensure your vehicle will start on<br />

cold mornings they offer free battery and alternator and starter<br />

tests, and free battery fitting.<br />

equipment designed to find any faults with vehicles’ electronics,<br />

air bags or ABS braking system, which the qualified and<br />

experienced auto electrical specialists will repair quickly and<br />

efficiently.<br />

Roses Auto Electrical provides full electrical services for all<br />

makes and models of European, Japanese and light commercial<br />

years, and the workshop team are constantly updating their<br />

Three important reasons<br />

for seeking Southern<br />

Chiropractic care –<br />

and how it can help<br />

Our spines are delicate yet important<br />

central structures designed to<br />

support the human body and<br />

allow for physical movement and<br />

functionality.<br />

By ensuring better spinal alignment<br />

through care at Halswell’s Southern<br />

Chiropractic you can better protect<br />

against potential back injury and<br />

increase the capacity of your body to<br />

heal itself naturally. There are many<br />

benefits to regular chiropractic care<br />

that will improve your overall general<br />

health and wellbeing both now, and in<br />

the future.<br />

The three main benefits are:<br />

Pain and stress relief: When your<br />

spine is not working freely and your<br />

vertebrae may be misaligned it is<br />

likely that your body will not feel 100<br />

per cent. Some may experience a<br />

mild or dull ache, others tightness<br />

in muscles and perhaps a strong<br />

sharper pain. For most individuals,<br />

this can also cause mental stress<br />

as your attention is drawn to the<br />

symptoms experienced. Treatment<br />

by Southern Chiropractic will help<br />

balance your body and provide<br />

much-needed stress relief, whilst<br />

restoring you back to your better,<br />

more active self.<br />

Better posture: Over time, and<br />

largely as a result of sedentary<br />

lifestyles, our spines can be exposed<br />

to added physical pressure. Taking<br />

a little time to engage in regular<br />

exercise and chiropractic care can<br />

do wonders to help align abnormal<br />

curving or tilting in your spine and<br />

improve your overall body posture.<br />

Improved motion: As chiropractic<br />

care can lessen tension in your spine<br />

and allow the nerves to communicate<br />

without interference, you could<br />

benefit from an improved sense of<br />

motion and increase in energy. When<br />

your body no longer has to fight<br />

against constant aches and pains,<br />

it will better support movement and<br />

physical activity.<br />

Southern Chiropractic care consists<br />

of initial orthopaedic assessment<br />

to determine areas of dysfunction<br />

within the spine (neck and back)<br />

followed by treatment designed to<br />

facilitate the restoration of normal<br />

function to that area. Methods used<br />

include a combination of soft tissue<br />

treatment (massage), low level laser<br />

therapy and spinal manipulation or<br />

mobilisation.<br />

Importance of healthy lifestyles<br />

Alongside chiropractic treatment, an<br />

active and healthy lifestyle will help<br />

to maintain your back health and<br />

decrease the likelihood of excess<br />

weight, strain and resulting injury.<br />

Adopting a balanced diet that is<br />

nutrient and vitamin-rich will also<br />

contribute to a wholesome lifestyle.<br />

Regular exercise, whether walking,<br />

swimming, yoga or any other sport<br />

for that matter, will be beneficial for<br />

your body, spine and mind.<br />
