Car parking restrictions likely near popular Port Hills track „„ By Bridget Rutherford and Caitlin Miles USING A popular Port Hills track could become more difficult with a plan to install no stopping restrictions on nearby streets. The city council is looking to install yellow no stopping lines on most of Rapaki Rd and part of Montgomery Tce. Rapaki Rd is the main access way to Rapaki Track, which is popular with walkers, runners and mountain-bikers, especially on the weekends. However, residents say track users parking on the road made it narrow and dangerous. Rapaki Rd resident Mike Smith said that even with the yellow lines across from his house it can be hard for him to get in and out of his driveway with people parking over the lines. He said the proposed changes are a good way to tackle the problem. “It can not be tolerated because people will get hurt if something doesn’t change,� Mr Smith said. Mr Smith said he is concerned about emergency services being able to get to the top of the track to assist people. As a result, the city council has put the plan out for public consulta-

tion to get feedback before it approves the changes. The restrictions would run along the left side of the road from Centaurus Rd to Montgomery Tce, and on the right hand side on the top stretch of the road. Montgomery Tce would also have restrictions on the left hand side of the road leading to Erewhon Tce. The city council hopes the changes would improve safety, make more room for vehicles to manoeuvre, and improve access to properties. Councillor Tim Scandrett (left) said he doesn’t know why people who plan to walk Rapaki Track park at the very start of the track when they could park elsewhere and get more exercise. “It seems insane that people drive up there to walk and be fit but they won’t park at the bottom (of Rapaki Rd),� Cr Scandrett said. He said it is welcome news for residents along the road. Mr Smith said he hopes this will make the improvements that many residents have wanted for a long time. Consultation will close next Wednesday, with the restrictions hoped to be installed in March, if approved. HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think yellow no parking lines on Rapaki Rd are needed? Send your thoughts to caitlin.miles@ starmedia.kiwi

PARKING CONCERNS: Parking like this on Rapaki Rd could be a thing of the past if yellow no parking lines are installed along the narrow road leading to Rapaki Track. ​

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 „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AFTER A whirlwind career in the Big Apple, a former Bromley 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.

“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.

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.

Your Local Views Honest and open

News

New Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton talks about her new role and what she plans to achieve for the community during her term as a councillor.

Fashion IT IS a real privilege to be elected to serve the community and this month new representatives have been chosen across the city. Thank you for your trust and belief in us as we move into these new roles. Being an elected representative involves both advocacy for your ward and decision making on behalf of residents. This requires members to listen carefully to the needs and desires of their communities and to engage with them in an honest and open way. We are elected for both our experience and our vision, yet we need to be open to new ideas and evidence and to do what is right, both for now and for future generations. The new community boards will deal with local issues and at times will have to balance competing views within communities and make a decision. This is not easy and not to be taken lightly, as there could be disappointed residents one

way or another. Meetings are open to the public and you can also request speaking rights to let us know your views on local issues or about projects you’re involved in. Councillors wear two hats – one for local issues and one for citywide, or metropolitan issues. Balancing the competing needs and desires of the city against rates and debt is one of the core responsibilities of the city council and I would like to see more groups and individuals engaged in this and other decision making processes. Our meetings are also open and are live streamed, so that you can see how and why decisions are made. I have maintained a Facebook page for the last three years to keep the community up to date with local issues and the work I have done as community board chairwoman. The page is now called ‘Sara Templeton Councillor for Heathcote’. Please feel free to follow it and contact me at any time.

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-

The meerkats take centre stage, not only being on the cover but also with a small photo on every page accompanied by some energy saving tips. “It’s about making people aware of the ways they can save energy and money and getting that education out there,” she said.

COMING TOGETHER: An artist’s impression of the proposed new Selwyn St shops.

Selwyn St views sought A NEW “village feel” for part of Selwyn St could mean losing 19 car parks as the plan for the street goes to the public. The future road layout of Selwyn St, between Brougham and Coronation Sts, is currently out for public consultation. It involves the number of car parks dropping from 55 to 36, adding cycleways and improving pedestrian safety. It will coincide with the redevelopment of the Selwyn St shops. The original Selwyn St shops suffered considerable damage in the earthquakes and about 60 per cent of the buildings were lost or unusable. A master plan for the new shops was signed off in July 2012, with the aim of rejuvenating the area. Rosewarne St and Somerset Cres will also be affected by the plan changes. The proposal includes

narrowing the road, where Coronation St intersects with Selwyn St, to slow traffic travelling around the corner. Cycleways will also be installed down both sides of Selwyn St to connect with the current cycleways on Coronation St. At the Somerset Cres intersection, traffic islands and additional pedestrian crossings will also be put in near to Addington School. The plan includes a mixture of green space, paved areas and street furniture, with new seating, rubbish bins and cycle stands. Trees will also line the shops. Consultation is open until December 5. Go to https:// ccc.govt.nz/the-council/haveyour-say/whats-happeningnow/consultations/ to make a submission. Construction will begin next year.

Tony Murdoch

Recording sporting history

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. Probably the club records weren’t as detailed as we would’ve liked but we were able to cross-reference with Surf Lifesaving New Zealand’s annual 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 White, but that’s also the style of the book you’ve created? No, no. There’s a story to that. It’s called Black and White because the club colours are black and white. But also the personality of the club is very pragmatic, they’re hard workers and they get things done. They make black and white decisions and they don’t muck around – they’re black and white about everything. I ran that 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.

Previously United Travel

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. 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 volunteerrun surf club. So I kind of write to give them their turn in the sun even if only for a minute.

News Surf club founder hero and villain Fashion „„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce WHILE RESEARCHING for his latest book on the North Beach Surf Lifesaving Club, Black and White, Tony Murdoch found that the founder of the club was both a hero and a villain. Ray Blank (right) banded together local businessmen, who owned a lot of land in the area, to create a surf club in 1916 in the hopes that it would raise its value. And it worked. But while Blank went on to become a local hero at the club, Murdoch looked into his background and found that perhaps that title was undeserving. “To some he was the uncrowned king of New Brighton, but to others he [had the] more disparaging title of ‘Sand King’ bestowed,” he said. Blank was prosecuted by the Borough Council in 1935 for owning buildings with insufficient water and sanitary arrangements. “Everyone knew that Blank was experienced in acquiring structures on the cheap and shifting them to suitable sites. Witness the number of baches around [New] Brighton, Burwood and Avondale,” he said. It was story gems like this, that Murdoch discovered while writing a 240 page history on the club. Further in the book, Murdoch writes about brothers Pat and Ian Stuart, who had a cunning plan to “bail out” of a surf club canoe when a large wave came, so the members at the front would be thrown forward and into the water. “It worked beautifully and Pat and I were guffawing behind the shore break when Don Dalton paddled past on a ski and said ‘you shouldn’t have done that, the canoe’s broken in half’,” Ian Stuart said in the book. The brothers had to “face the music” when the two halves of the canoe washed up on the

Gardening shore. Other tales in the book include the triumph of the 1981 North Beach surf boat crew which took on the country’s best crews and won in Oakura, New Plymouth. Brothers Dave and Steve Pipe as well as Ron Vette, Terry Kreft and Rob Lindsay took to the water and won gold in the long course race and took silver in the short course in a photo finish with the Whangamata crew. Four years later however, when the local competition came to New Brighton, the decision was reversed and North Beach was awarded the gold in the short course as well. Pegasus Post reported in October that after a few beers to celebrate Dave Pipe’s 60th birth-

celebrations were celebrated in 1991, and was the highlight of the season for most members. “By all accounts the celebrations were a major success with a good attendance and plenty

of smiling faces as old friend[s] renewed contact . . . the highlight of the season was undoubtedly the 75th jubilee which was a resounding success,” Murdoch said.

SCHOOLS

Encouraging pupils to SCHOOLS eat healthier lunches A LOCAL supermarket and bakery have got behind a health initiative at St Anne’s Catholic School. New World Ferry Rd has supplied new ‘waste free’ lunch boxes to all the new entrants and Couplands Bakeries have donated a loaf of bread to every child every week to help make healthier lunch choices. The initiative is part of a Ministry of Health programme called Health Promoting Schools, which focuses on improving an aspect of the school. Principal Dallas Wichman said the health team, made up of five year 7 and 8 pupils, decided to encourage healthier lunches. As part of the programme the school was given $1000 to make it work. Couplands jumped on board, providing the pupils with a loaf of bread every week and 20 loaves for the pupils to make sandwiches with in class every week. When Mr Wichman approached New World Ferry Rd, about getting involved owner

RAISING MONEY: St Peter’s School held its annual fundraiser this year to raise money for less fortunate children. The school’s senior pupils run various stalls selling different items with all of the money going to organisations that raise money for less fortunate children.

SPORTS

Greg Boock said they were on bored straight away. The supermarket provided 70 free ‘waste free’ lunch boxes and will continue to provide a lunch box to every new entrant pupil. The lunch boxes are designed to encourage good portion control and using less packaged food in pupils’ lunches. “It’s food for thought, getting families to give their kids less packaged food in the lunches means more fruit and healthy eating, we’re happy to be involved with that education,” Mr Boock said. Mr Wichman said the programme was working well and they hope to be involved again next year.

Comedy a play within a play

Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding WHEN RAVIL Atlas, 56, first went to see English play Noises Off in London in early 80s, he had no idea what to expect. Looking back now, the Beckenham resident (right), fondly recalls nearly falling out of his seat three times during the show from laughing so hard.  With an accomplished and varied career under his belt, the San Francisco-born performer is directing what he says is his favourite show ever, for the Canterbury Repertory Theatre.  Noises Off by English playwright Michael Frayn is about a comedic play within a play, showcasing the behind-thescenes chaos of an incompetent cast attempting to perform their own farce. Atlas describes the show about people “losing their cookies” on the stage as the funniest thing he has ever seen.  “Those of us who have been

in theatre will all recognise this. It is watching in a very English way watching people disintegrate when all goes to hell,” he said. Atlas has an extensive performing career, playing the Jean Valjean in the San Francisco broadway company version of Les Miserables and the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera. While working in these productions he has worked with original creators including composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and stage director John Caird.

But even he has the odd moment on stage he wishes he could take back. These moments included having his pants fall down while bowing on stage while performing with San Francisco-based male classical vocal ensemble Chanticleer. He said another time in his career when “everything literally stopped” was when he began laughing hysterically with one of his best friends while performing on stage in front of about 2000 children.  After performing in more than

I had been doing the career for 25 years and I was ready to hang it up and move onto the next thing,” he said. While his wife Amanda Winfield Atlas is currently debuting with Opera Australia, Atlas said he has no intention of leaving the city. “I have an investment here in all these actors now to try and bring a new viewpoint about performance techniques and

vocal technique. I am not going anywhere.” He now teaches singing at Burnside High School, is the director of Atlas Voices Ensemble and The Christchurch Pops Choir, and recently directed the successful season of Chicago for North Canterbury Musical Society. He is also involved in the planning stages for setting up a new opera company in the city. •Canterbury Repertory Theatre will stage Noises Off from November 16 to December 3.

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

Groups get gardens growing Why The Enchanted Garden is

„„ By Caitlin Miles A LACK of community gardens near Hoon Hay has spurred a community group and church into creating one together. Rowley Resource Centre has paired up with St John of God Church in Halswell to create Project Grow, a community garden for families, groups and schools to be a part of. The nearest community garden is on Strickland St, which is “a bit far” for some living in the Hoon Hay community. The project started with Rowley Resource Centre’s garden group helping residents create vegetable gardens in their backyards. Centre members noticed there wasn’t a community garden near the area, so it decided to create one. Centre manager, Donna McAleer said it’s about getting the community involved in a project they can benefit from. “It’s exciting because it will be a good community project,” Ms McAleer said. The aim of the garden is to encourage schools and young people to get involved in looking after

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. You can also check out our website and facebook page.

Kids love CASPA!

MAKING GARDENS: Members of the Rowley Resource Centre garden team have been building gardens in resident’s backyards and plan to make a community garden at St John of God Church. ​ a communal vegetable garden, growing food, maintaining the garden and learning more about eating healthy. The centre has set up two garden groups for people to join and while

the project is still in the early stages Ms McAleer said she hopes enthusiasm for the project stays. The project is being set up on a section of lawn at St John of God Church on Nash Rd.

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”.
