Casebrook celebrates 50 years HALF-CENTURY: Casebrook Intermediate School held a special assembly recently to mark its 50th birthday. The school first opened its doors to pupils on May 28, 1966. A teacher, who taught one of the first Casebrook classes, shared her memories of the school with current pupils. Following that, the pupils enjoyed 400 cupcakes which had 50 written on them with icing. •Turn to page 11 for more

Businesses fear road closure „„ By Andrew King MORE THAN 9000 vehicles will have to find another route in and out of the city as major repairs to a sewer line in Edgeware starts in mid-January. Repair work to the sewer infrastructure under the intersection of Madras St and Edgeware Rd will mean the intersection will be closed for up to six weeks. Recent data released by the New Zealand Transport Agency shows on average more than 9000 cars the route each day.

But a local business says it is not just commuters who will suffer. Part owner of Peter Timbs Meats David Timbs said there has been a noticeable drop in customers when parts of Edgeware Rd have been closed. “We have been thrown under the bus that many times with those people who do the road works, they have been doing it for the last five years and we notice a drop of people coming through the door,� he said.

The butchery is located in the Edgeware Village. “I wouldn’t mind them doing it once and doing it well and getting it done, everyone can tolerate that, but they do it all the time and it is very frustrating and bad for business.â€? Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuilt Team executive general manager Ian Campbell said it is in the early stages of planning so they cannot definitively say how long it will be closed for. •Turn to page 5

Tuesday November 15 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

LIKE SO many of you in the coastal suburbs, I was perched up on the hills after being evacuated due to the tsunami risk yesterday. Again, like the previous earthquakes, I am always taken by the wonderful folk we have in this city. While I was perched up the top of Egnot Heights in Redcliffs, the lads in my car decided they would have a nap. I was not similarly afflicted and had a wander around. I found Nicki of North New Brighton, who unknowingly soothed me with her banter and her beaut two-year-old dog. Then, Nicki and I found ourselves invited into a stranger’s home, who brewed us a cup of dearly needed caffeine. In her house, were other refugees – a school caretaker and a lovely young couple from Germany and Mexico. The earthquakes continue to shake us, but they do not shake our marvellous Christchurch spirit. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

Dancer home to another quake

Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AFTER A whirlwind career in the Big Apple, a former St Bede’s College dancer has returned home only to face one of his biggest fears – earthquakes. The 7.5 magnitude earthquake that struck near Hanmer Springs was a harsh reminder for Hayden Joseph Withers, 21, who suffered badly from anxiety and trauma after the February 2011 earthquake. He has returned home to Bromley and his family to take part in The Court Theatre’s summer production of Legally Blonde after dancing professionally in New York city for more than two years. He left Christchurch to get away from the earthquakes and to study at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, which he graduated from in 2014. “Getting out of Christchurch was helpful but even in New York if doors slammed, or there was thunder, (or) the subway was rattling the street . . . you would think that is an earthquake,” he said. Yesterday, Withers and his family were evacuated from their Bromley home after the earthquake struck.

ON STAGE: Hayden Joseph Withers performing in the musical All Shook Up at The Fireside Theatre, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, United States.

“I am pretty tired, I was up the hill until 7am . . . my mum was pretty upset and it reminded me a lot of the September 4, 2010, earthquake,” he said. Withers’ fear of earthquakes was amplified after the February 2011 earthquake when quake predictor Ken Ring said an 8.2 magnitude quake would strike

on March 20. A 5.1 aftershock struck on the day. “I thought at that point, that was the end . . . for the next while I was scared to leave my room, go anywhere,” he said. He said while he was reasonably calm about yesterday’s earthquake and was still attending rehearsals at The Court Theatre,

he had not yet processed it. Fresh from his most recent endeavour sailing around the Caribbean on the Disney Dream cruise trip as a dancer, Withers knows a thing or two about facing his fears to chase his dreams. “I am actually scared of the ocean. Sometimes I would get really anxious and I would be crying or whatever,” he said. Withers was seven when he nearly drowned after slipping on a rock and falling into a river, staying under water for about 30sec before his father rescued him. But he said he braved his fear of the ocean to work for what he describes as the “most magical company in the world.” “Making magic for so many people every day was so special . . . the kids just die for it – they love it.” As for living in New York, Withers describes it as a place of beauty, culture and opportunity, but somewhere you are a small fish in a big pond. On his return to New York, Withers plans to find a place to settle down after “gypsying” around the United States for so long before he gets back to auditioning for shows.

From recovery to regeneration News City councillor Jamie Gough writes about the central city recovery

We are possibly entering the most exciting time in our rebuild. We’re moving from ‘recovery’ into ‘regeneration.’ It’s a strategic and defining period. A Government-appointed Independent Hearings Panel is rewriting our District Plan, though one item is of particular concern: The Temporary Accommodation Legislation. It was set to expire this year, meaning businesses that were displaced from the CBD and relocated to suburbia due to the earthquake would need to move back to the city. The IHP has, however, extended this out until 2021.  I will be the first to say that this legislation was required in the initial aftermath of the earthquake. We’re however, in a completely different time now. For our rebuild to be deemed a success we will need to have a central city that thrives. The major contributor to that is critical mass, and with the imperative removed for these businesses to, once again, operate centrally, it will drastically

Fashion

stagnate if not irreparably impair the quality of our city’s rebuild as a whole. Further to this, residents who have chosen to live in a suburban setting have quite rightly run out of patience. They chose to live where they do for a reason, and that wasn’t because they loved not being able to park outside their homes due to masses of office workers and customers placing huge strain on the residential infrastructure. If the city was still in lock-down, then of course one could understand the decision of the IHP. This, however, couldn’t be further from the truth. The central office offering is vast and landlords are having a race to the bottom with rents. It’s a tenant’s dream. A-Grade space is being offered at B-Grade prices – with eye-watering fit-out incentives to boot – and there’s still even more quality space set to come on-stream. We need to influence the IHP into showing the intestinal fortitude to realise that you’re never too far down the wrong path to reassess matters and make the right call. We have one chance to get this rebuild right but I just can’t stomach seeing our city’s legacy being that of squandered opportunities.

Handling fireworks more responsibly Fire risk management officer Mark Thomas talks about fireworks, banning certain kinds, the impact public displays have had on public safety and looking after animals around Guy Fawkes. Thirty years ago Guy Fawkes night caused a holding of breath by just about every firefighter in the country.  Inevitably somewhere a sawmill would end up burning end to end.  Or a town would be circled in flames as trees and scrub went up in flames.  Or someone not even celebrating the night would find their garage on fire.  The news would report the tragic loss of an eye by ill-used skyrocket.  Letter boxes were the target of ‘double-happy’ bombs.  For firefighters it made no sense at all. Thankfully we’ve come on a bit since

then. The ban on rockets and bangers helped.  The provision of public displays has been a big plus. And perhaps we should acknowledge that more recent developments in health and safety has had an effect on people’s behaviour. Whatever the reasons it was gratifying to see just nine fire calls overnight on November 5.  Grass, scrub, fences and a couple of bins put down to fireworks.  It’s not perfect.  But it’s encouraging. Animal rescues are also quite common around Guy Fawkes as crackers terrify dogs, cats and other animals.  This week saw three of these type of incidents, a dog, some ducklings and very topically a lamb stuck in a stream at Cashmere on Wednesday night.  None were necessarily fireworks related but all involved the problem solving skills our firefighters develop every day in the multitude of different events they now attend.  They’re pretty damn good actually.

Orana park meerkats part of fundraiser Fashion „„ By Caitlin Miles A SPECIAL connection between Community Energy Action and some meerkats has them on the cover of its fundraising calendar. CEA has been sponsoring the meerkats at Orana Wildlife Park for the last three years, marketing co-ordinator Emily Coffey said the not for profit organisation supports them as they share a lot of values with them. “We feel like our community values align with meerkats’ values. They look after one another, focus on looking after one another and caring about their environment. That’s what we are about,” Miss Coffey said. This year CEA teamed up with Orana to create a calendar as part of CEA’s annual fundraiser for the park. Miss Coffey said the decision was “a bit spur of the moment” and took about two months to get the whole thing together. “Once we came up with the idea they were on board we’re really excited to be working with Orana on this,” Miss Coffey said. The calendar features a selec-

But this is work that needs to be done. Hopefully, people will continue to support those businesses during this time,” she said. SCIRT traffic planning manager Colin Hey, said

past the committee near the start and they were well pleased to think that’s what people think of the club. How was the club founded? The original thought was that it was a group of men who were members of the New Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club who got together and decided to make a club a little further along the beach. But the real story is that there was a guy called Ray Blank. It became pretty clear as I was looking into it that Ray Blank and a group of guys from a North Beach businessman’s association got together and had land interests in the area. They decided that if there was a surf club in the area that would bring people out there and raise their house prices. And they did quite well out of it. Do all of your books look quite deep into the club’s history? Yes, each of the books has a twist to them somewhere in it. The twist in the rugby book was me saying that the conventional theory of the first game of rugby in the country was played in Nelson in 1871 was wrong.

Tony Murdoch has just published his new sports history book Black and White about the North Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. It coincides with the club’s centenary celebrations. Fraser Walker-Pearce spoke to him

You must be thrilled to have published the book when you did. Yes, exactly. It was published in time for the club’s centenary celebrations over Labour Weekend. They had hundreds attend that. Is this your first sports history book? No, I have written two other sports histories, one on the Riccarton Cricket Club in 2002 and then in 2013 I did the 150th jubilee history of the Christchurch Football Club. Then this one came along, they asked me to do it, and I’ve been doing that ever since. So you’ve been working on this for the past three years? Yes. It’s a big project, I think it’s about 240 pages.

reports and check most of it off. Things like results and that kind of thing were hard to check off though. Who approached you from the club to do the project? Roger Smith the president of the club talked to me about it. He’s lived and breathed the club for about three or four years. What’s different about this book compared to your others? This one is more of a coffee book style. With lots of newspaper clippings like the famous gala dances at North Beach. That’s basically how the club got through the Great Depression and that kind of thing. [In the book] there are ads for the dances, we used the full width of the page in the book with these photos and I think it really adds to the look of the book as well. Obviously it’s called Black and

Our People

our sporting history

Views Your Local Views It’s in all the official New Zealand histories saying that. But the Christchurch book showed quite clearly that wasn’t the case. They couldn’t have – as the game didn’t exist in New Zealand back then, they just played a hybrid game of soccer. It was actually out of Christ’s College that the game in Christchurch grew. What are the other titles of your books? The Riccarton Cricket Club book is called Green and Gold, and the rugby book was called The Old Club, just like the old newspapers used to call them. How would you define your style of books? Lots of anecdotes, lots of personalities. This book goes through a whole lot of life members, and families of members. These are guys that are prepared to swim out 400-500m to save someone. I mean, can you do that? I certainly can’t. No, I’d definitely 100 per cent drown. Do you work part-time as well as all of this? Yes, I have a full-time job at St Bede’s College. I’m the alumni and community development manager. I’ve been there for eight

years. Previously I was the chief executive of Canterbury Cricket and chief executive of Athletics New Zealand. I was a teacher at Aranui High School before that. You have a huge sporting background, did you ever play

yourself? Modestly. I played rugby and cricket, unsurprisingly I played rugby for Christchurch and cricket for Riccarton. How did you start your writing career?

I actually started at the Christchurch Star back in the day. When I was teaching I also co-wrote a few history textbooks. There was a group of us at Aranui High, including John Rosanowski and we wrote a series of history books for fifth form (year 11) students. What subjects did they cover? A little bit of New Zealand history, Martin Luther King, race relations in South Africa, we touched on the Springbok Tour. Also the gold rushes, New Zealand foreign policy, and also two books on Hitler and Germany for social studies. To teach students from your own textbook is quite a thrill. And were you born and bred in Christchurch? Yes, born and bred. My brother Tim and I have lived in Sumner all our lives and I think my next project might be on the Sumner Surf Lifesaving Club and their centenary. What schools did you attend back in the day? I was at St Bede’s and then onto Canterbury University where I studied American history. After that I went on to teaching at

Aranui High for about 16 years. And who’s with you out in Sumner? My wife and I live out there and we have two adult children. I met my wife at a dance at the Sumner surf club. So surf clubs played a big part of you growing up as well? Surf clubs have a big role in what I call the rite of passage. They had dances and social gatherings, they provided a social space for kids in quite an interesting time of their lives. There aren’t many other sports that boys and girls just hang out and compete together that much. Many men and women put countless hours into keeping these clubs going as well. Why do you write sports history books? If you look in the book, there’s only one thing that has stayed in the North Beach community for the past 100 years, and that’s the surf club. There’s been post offices and cafes and restaurants and that kind of thing but the only thing that is still there is the volunteer-run surf club. So I kind of write to give them their turn in the sun even if only for a minute.

SCHOOLS SPORTS DAY: Allenvale pupils enjoyed their recent sports day hosted by the New Zealand Institute of Sport. Acting assistant principal Megan Gore said NZIS worked hard to provide a well-organised day full of fun. They started with an Olympic-style ceremony, where each class represented a country. They then competed in discus, shot put, sprints, hurdles and jumping events followed by a medal presentation and a sausage sizzle. “Allenvale School is very grateful for the effort and planning that NZIS gives to make it such a successful day,” Mrs Gore said.

RUNNING SMOOTHLY: Students at the New Zealand Institute of Sport helped run Allenvale School’s sports day.

TOP PROBLEM SOLVERS: A Harry Potter-inspired theatre performance helped a Rangi Ruru problem solving team qualify for an international competition. Year 11 students Eugene In, Suzanna Davis, Ruby Blake-Manson and Abby Croot earned their spot in the International Future Problem Solving competition by coming second in the recent national competition. The final will be held in June at the University of Wisconsin, United States.

HALF CENTURY PARTY: Casebrook pupils Aston Nuttall, Luke Reynolds, William Smith and Liam McIntyre joined in the celebrations of their school’s 50th birthday. The school recently held a special assembly and retired Casebrook teacher Pat Stoneman gave students an insight into what it was like when it first opened. The students shared 400 cupcakes, which were decorated to commemorate the occasion.

The officials also visited Auckland schools Ormiston Primary, Kelston Deaf Education Centre, Ormiston Junior, Ellerslie Primary and Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Puau te Moananui a Kiwa earlier in the week.

Against Ashgrove, the girls chased down the visitor’s total of 54 in just four overs, with wide balls accounting for some of that. Then against Heaton, Cobham chased 103 and fell just short losing their final wicket in the 20th over with a total of 101. The final match against Waimea saw Cobham score 114 for the loss of two wickets. Top bowling from Millie Shanahan and Molly Stagg ensured Cobham’s win.

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI The start of work on the Northern Corridor is good news for residents on both sides of the river. I joined the Prime Minister and the Minister of Transport on 4 November to turn the sod in Northern Christchurch for the $240 million project, which is being built under the National-led Government’s Roads of National Significance Programme. The project will reduce congestion, deliver improved journey times and support economic development in our area. Northern Christchurch residents will appreciate the new four-lane motorway that will divert traffic smoothly to QEII Drive, reducing traffic on local roads and creating a safer environment for our families walking and biking to schools and shops.

It’s been a full year of milestones and openings in the electorate, and confirms what I hear from meeting a range of people in my role who

are upbeat that we are on track and heading in the right direction. It was good to have the support of local residents and stakeholders at the opening of my Belfast office, with representatives from the community board, school and Belfast Community Network. I’m enjoying offering Northern Christchurch residents a nearby location to meet with me. The Northwood Fair and Belfast Primary School Fair were great opportunities to catch up with our local residents with my family. Congratulations to the organisers for these events, which provide safe and fun entertainment for our residents. I enjoyed speaking at the Belfast Friendly Club Housie day and joining in some of the games. The group do good work in our community and I enjoyed the opportunity to show my support.

BISHOPDALE

Fun for the entire family Mark your calendars and join the community fun to celebrate Bishopdale. Sunday, November 20th at Bishopdale Park – Harewood Road & Leacroft Street, 11am-2pm Celebrate Bishopdale began in 2013 as a thank you event to the community. It was so well received that the day has now become an annual community festival. Over the past few years attendance has grown from 300 people at the inaugural event to over 1,000 attendees last year. Celebrate Bishopdale showcases a variety of activities for families including a bouncy castle, climbing wall, stone carving, local school and group stage performances, plus affordable food and market stalls. A majority of the market and information stalls are local groups and businesses there to say hi and raise awareness, attract new members or fundraise for their organisation. Keith Walker and Keith de Dulin are returning again this year as the MC’s. Keith de Dulin endeared himself to kiwi schools and TV audiences starting in the 80’s as community cop Constable Keith with his trusty sidekick, Sniff.

Together they were welcomed far and wide for their down-to-earth banter as the duo appeared regularly on the children’s TV show What Now, visited schools and hospitals and even put out a cassette of their songs. Sniff, the rough and ready police dog with a gravelly voice, was the perfect foil for good-hearted traffic cop Constable Keith, who would bring Sniff and their audience up-to-date on safety messages. Performing at this year’s festival is Bishopdale’s very own resident Pat Dugan. Known as the Godfather of Country Music he will be delighting the audience with his music. We look forward to seeing you all there on Saturday, November 20th. An event not to be missed! Supported by: Christchurch City Council & Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board

BISHOPDALE History behind the event The idea to hold the festival was the result of a Community Conversation, hosted by the Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board in 2012. This meeting was a chance for residents and community groups to meet together to share ideas and goals for their community. The people spoke about wanting some fun days, focused on family and community events, where neighbours could meet neighbours and all families, no matter their size, culture or circumstance could meet together to celebrate their area. Together the Christchurch City Council staff work closely with the Bishopdale Community Trust to plan and deliver the now annual event to the Bishopdale area. The Bishopdale Community Trust are dedicated to the enhancement and support for the Bishopdale community and welcome visitors at their community centre located at the Sundbye House, 100 Farrington Ave. At the community centre they offer a wide range of services and events to the neighbourhood, with a special emphasis on activities for families and seniors.

History behind the neighbourhood The suburb is named after the three Bishop brothers, James (1826–1910), Robert (1827–1909) and William (1829– 1903), who bought land in the area in 1858 or 1859 and established pipfruit orchards. Initially, the area was called Bishopsdale, but the second ‘s’ was dropped from the name. Part of Greers Road (the section between Harewood Road and Sawyers

Arms Road) was formerly called Bishop’s Road. It was renamed in 1948 to avoid confusion with Bishops Road in Papanui and Bishop Street in St Albans. Area Total - 0.9531 km (0.3680 sq mi) Population (2013) - 2,424 Density - 2,500/km (6,600/sq/mi)

Anxiety and breathing – are they related? When good breathing goes bad

H • • • • • • • • • • • •

ave you experienced any of these breathing difficulty symptoms? • Disturbed sleep • Erratic heartbeats* Feeling anxious and uptight Upset gut/nausea Chest pains* Shattered confidence Tired all the time Achy muscles and joints Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out Irritability or hypervigilance Frequent yawning and sighing Breathing discomfort* Pins and needles Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience these symptoms.

These questions are asked on the website www.BradCliff.com. BradCliff was started by North Island physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in hyperventilation and anxiety treatment. Their website notes one in 10 people experience some form of breathing pattern disorder or chronic over breathing at some time in their lives, resulting in a range of disturbing or frightening symptoms puzzling to you and your doctor. You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell. A vicious cycle is established, which is a major stress all by itself. This is experienced currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio. As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast and in the upper chest when we are in danger and fight or flight is needed. We know all about that here, due to the earthquakes. Normally, once the danger is gone, our breathing should restore itself within a couple of days. We would then be using the diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard time restoring our breathing pattern here in Canterbury because every time our body tried to achieve that, the next aftershock came rolling in. Even though the aftershocks have significantly diminished, some people’s fight or flight mode breathing has become chronic, or habitual, Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the wrong muscles for breathing means these overworked muscles cause headaches, neck pain and jaw pain. With fast upper chest breathing, sighing and yawning, the resulting disturbance of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels can give us the feeling we are not able to control our own body. One moment you are are feeling fine, next moment your chest feels tight, you feel out of breath, your heart beats erratically and you may even experience dizziness and/or tingling. Very scary if you do not understand what is happening. No wonder this causes anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on. The BradCliff physiotherapists have established a national network of practitioners that regularly train together and can help you overcome this problem. Physical Sense is part of that network. To make an appointment phone 377 2577.

KIDSTUFF

Gallery numbers below target Fashion „„ By Bridget Rutherford CHRISTCHURCH Art Gallery did not meet its visitor target for the first three months of the financial year, while Canterbury Museum has had record numbers. The city council’s performance report from July to September 30 showed it had hoped to get about 400,000 visitors. However, it had met 72 per cent of its target. Meanwhile, Canterbury Museum achieved record visitor numbers in the past two months for its exhibition Air New Zealand 75 Years. September saw 48,879 visitors, while in October, 63,815 people visited. City council customer and community general manager Mary Richardson said Canterbury Museum was better served by bus routes and tourist buses. She said the city council was looking at a bus parking area for near the gallery. “This is likely to be considered by com-

Why The Enchanted Garden is Different from the Rest

The Enchanted Garden is a small nurturing preschool that provides individualised care for infants, toddlers and young children. We are proud of our small group sizes, trained teachers and well above minimum teacher/child ratios. Our recent 2016 Education Review Office report states “Teachers follow well-paced, individual home routines that foster children’s sense of security and wellbeing”. If you care about the quality of care your child receives call in and enrol at any time and you will find your child’s perfect home away from home.

mittee early next year.” There were also a range of road works around the gallery, she said, and the gallery’s car park was still closed. The city council hoped once the car park was reopened at the end of the month and it has leased the cafe early next year, numbers would pick back up, she said. The gallery was officially reopened in December after being damaged in the February 2011 earthquake. It cost $60 million to repair.

New Hope For Long Term Back Pain Sufferers

After more than eight years in New Zealand, Teeter Hang-Ups have now gained a reputation for success with long-term sufferers of Back pain. Inversion New Zealand was started eight years ago by Dave and Nancy Hare, Dave had suffered over twenty years of back pain from Degenerated Discs and had basically given up and decided to just live with it. “To me surgery was never an option” he said “as long as I still could walk, there was hope”.

was something I had never heard of sorting it out for me in a very short period of time” It was then Dave decided to introduce Teeter into New Zealand and Inversion NZ was born.

Dave had tried everything; every time he was overseas he would search for anything that could possibly help. While on one of these overseas trips eight years ago, Dave discovered the Teeter Hang-Ups. “The first time I tried it, the pain disappeared and I was completely pain free for about 30 minutes, nothing had done that” he told me. Dave never believed it would fix him, “as specialists had told me it was irreversible, I now knew I had a place to go every time I wanted some serious relief”.

“We have testimonials from people with over fifty years of back problems and even have them in a number of schools in New Zealand for their special needs children” he told me, “the blood to the brain helps these kids and the results are excellent” What this means for the aging population is that it helps maintain the health of the brain as we all get older.

To Dave’s surprise the more he used the table the longer the pain stayed away, until after nearly three months he was completely pain free, “I couldn’t believe it’ he told me “I had spent large amounts of money on every form of treatment available and here

TESTIMONIAL

Over the years INZ have helped thousands of people get some serious relief and have seen results in not only backs, but necks, hips, knees, posture, circulation, increased height, blood pressure and lots more.

DEAR DAVE AND NANCY

In 2008 I had been living with a serious lower back pain for many years due to two discs with serious degeneration and was scheduled for a double spinal fusion at a cost of $48,000. The Specialist had recommended many lifestyle changes including changing my profession, which was not practical as I own my own business.

Dave told me that he realised that, had he not tried the Teeter for himself he would still be suffering, “I would still be a miserable grumpy bugger, living with pain, that is why we do the shows, people need to try it for themselves” he told me “most people actually get off with the pain either gone or considerably less” he said “we let the tables do the Frank Harwood (84) of Turangi using his Teeter, Frank has been talking” Inverting for over eight years and has found it keeps him young

IT IS PURE LOGIC AS TO HOW THE TEETER TABLE WORKS

Discs: It

uses gravity to apply traction, the traction gently opens the discs and as they open up they create suction, this suction draws fluid from the surrounding tissue back into the discs, re-hydrating them. This is the key! Discs do not have their own blood supply, they rely on transfer of fluid from the surrounding tissue to keep them healthy and hydrated and over the years as discs get thinner with age, they lose the ability to take on fluid (just like squeezing a sponge) and they start to de-hydrate. De-Hydrated discs are less flexible, they are harder, more prone to injury, they interfere with nerve roots creating pain and ultimately the de-hydration causes degeneration. The Teeter Inversion table slowly and gently brings the hydration back into the discs, plumping them up. This brings back lost height (most people will regain around 2 CM of height), it separates the nerve roots far more effectively and returns quality of life

Muscles: A lot of pain is muscular, when muscles are stressed they become tight which restricts the flow of blood and lymph through the muscles so toxins build up, Co2 and Lactic Acid. Traction opens up the muscles, Rhythmic Traction, is a gentle rocking motion that stimulates circulation and encourages blood flow through the muscles, which clears the lactic acid into your lymph system where it stimulates lymph flow and deals with it. Most people with serious neck issues see a large improvement after only one treatment.

Ashburton

Come along to our expo in Timaru, or come to our expo in Christchurch next weekend. (See below for details). If you have completely resigned yourself to having back or neck pain for the rest of your life, then chances are you will be pleasantly surprised.

Walnut Ave Pavillion Opposite Ashburton College 5th & 6th November 10am to 4pm

Posture: Poor

posture is one of the major cases of pain and is a major contributor to the deterioration of the body with age. A difference in leg length causes most of the hip and knee issues, as they continue to place uneven loads on the joints; similar to the wheels out of alignment on your car. Trying to correct posture is extremely difficult due to muscle memory, as it constantly pulls the muscles back to where they were. At a level of 40 degrees or more on the Teeter, the muscle groups open up and eventually come back into alignment, using the table daily, does not allow the muscle memory to pull them back out of alignment and slowly the muscles start to lose their memory and go with the flow, allowing the body to come back into correct posture. Then using the table once a day will ensure it is kept there. This is pure logic, if a machine is out of alignment it does not last long, the only difference between the body and a machine is that the body is constantly repairing itself, however if the wear and tear on the body is greater than the body’s ability to repair itself, it is a slow decline. The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its decline and allows the body to repair itself, resulting in a far healthier life.

If you are serious about investing in your health and really sorting your issues out, come see us at one of our local roadshows, you have nothing to lose and chances are, a lot to gain.

BACK

or

At the Waikato Home Show I experienced a demonstration on a Teeter Inversion Table by Dave and Nancy Hare. To me the effect was amazing, I actually experienced some serious relief which lasted for an hour or two, I was told that the relief would last longer with time as long as I used the table regularly, so with the surgery scheduled for 12 weeks time, having nothing to lose and a lot to gain I purchased a Teeter. Four years on I still use my table on a daily basis, my back is as strong as ever with very little or completely no pain, I am still at my same profession and working as hard as ever and most importantly I did not have the surgery. I consider the purchase of my Teeter has been one of my greatest investments, not only has it enabled me to avoid serious and costly surgery, it has kept me in my profession and it has brought my health back. Thank you very much for the opportunity. Very best regards Paul Gordon Cambridge

NECK PAIN?

Come along for a free treatment Here in New Zealand, Dr Giresh Kanji, one of the countries most respected Pain Specialists completed a PhD on how humans experience pain and then researched lower back pain, writing "Fix Your Back" and then spent a few years researching neck pain, headache and migraine and wrote "Fix Your Neck Pain, Headache & Migraine", both books are in most bookstores. Dr Kanji discovered in his research that the disc is the most likely source of low back pain and Inversion showed the best results of all the trials conducted. Three studies showed a 60% reduction in pain and one showed a 75% reduction in surgery for people with disc prolapse.

Inversion helps to: • Relieve Back Pain • Relieve Neck Pain • Relieve Muscle Tension • Stimulate Blood And Lymph Flow • Improve Posture • Increase Flexability • Reduce The Effects Of Ageing Caused By Gravity

Dr Kanji has personally been using the Teeter Inversion tables for his own low back pain, has Teeter Inversion tables at both of his clinics in Wellington (The Sports and Pain Clinic) and has had such success that he is now conducting the largest study in the World on Inversion Therapy. In his own words, "these things are gold and inversion should be a first line treatment for low back pain”.

Wright Spa Hornby Superstore Spa pool specialists now open in Hornby One of the city’s most well-known businesses, Wright Spa Pools of Ferrymead, has just opened a new branch in Hornby. Located at 20 Carmen Road, the premises formerly occupied by Hampton Motor Cycles is conveniently close to their client base, co-owner Matt Lowe says. “We service the mid-Canterbury area, and with the growth of the Lincoln, Rolleston and Selwyn areas, we saw this site as ideal for the expansion of our business.” The premises are almost three times the size of the family-owned business’ Ferry Road site, where they were running out of space, and are “as close as they could get to a purpose-built site”. Established in 1978, and trading on Ferry Road since 1991, Wright Spa Pools specialises in the world’s number one selling spa pools, the US-manufactured Hot Spring spa pools. “These Hot Spring spa pools are unique in that all models are fully insulated, unlike other spa pools on the market, and this makes them the most energy-efficient spa pools in the world,” Matt says. Models at the higher end of the range incorporate the latest technology, utilising the ACE Salt Water sanitising system, that works on real diamond electrodes to generate softer, cleaner water. Offering a range of less expensive models as well, Wright Spa Pools caters for all budgets and requirements. A new top-end line that has just been introduced is the Endless Swim Spa, which provides a smooth and consistent current for swimming against, with options including an underwater hydraulic treadmill. “These are the number one swim spas in the world,” Matt says. “Unlike most swim spas that use jets to move the water, the Endless Swim Spa provides a current like a river, creating a more natural flow.” Designed to offer therapeutic benefits, this spa is ideal for low-impact exercise and is a cost-effective alternative to a swimming pool, he says. Endless Swim

Spas are also easy to maintain, the water temperature can be adjusted at the push of a button, and they can be moved. Spa pool prices range from $5,990 right up to $100,000 - those considering purchasing one are invited to “try before they buy” at the showroom. “People can come in with their family and test out the different models. A spa pool is a major investment, so clients need to be sure they choose the right one for them,” Matt says. “We will also do on-site visits if they are not sure of the best place to install it.” Wright Spa Pools provides a full delivery and installation service, and after-sales support. “We don’t just drop off the spa pool, we set it up and explain how to operate it.” To complete the outdoor lifestyle experience, Wright Spa Pools has a range of Bull barbeques, also imported from the US. Like the Hot Spring spa pools, they are manufactured to the highest standard and are built to last. Wright Spa Pools Hornby is owned and operated by brothers Matt and Jeff Lowe. Their team of friendly sales and service professionals are ready to discuss your spa pool requirements and help you make the right choice. The team members are sales manager Nick Davies, sales professionals Joe Bergman, Jess Ledgerwood and Ashley Davies and service and installation specialists Shane Hamilton and Scott Sutherland. Wright Spa Pools Hornby, 20 Carmen Road, is right beside the railway tracks and has 40 on-site customer car parks. It is open seven days a week – Monday to Friday 9am-5pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm. Phone 349 0443 for more information.

The Endless Swim Spa creates a natural, river-like flow.
