DELAYED: The historic Risingholme Community Centre has not been used since suffering earthquake damage five years ago. Repairs are under way but fire-related issues have delayed work. ​

Fire-related issues delay repairs to Risingholme „„ By Annabelle Dick THE REBUILD of fire and earthquake-damaged Risingholme Community Centre has been delayed due to repair issues. The removal of fire damaged parts of the building combined with designs that have yet to be completed, means the city council can no longer confirm when work will start. The Opawa building was damaged during the February 22, 2011, earthquake and has

been out of use because it needed extensive repairs. The building was further damaged after a suspected arson attack on June 6. The city council confirmed in July it will rebuild the heritage facility. Earthquake repair work was due to be completed by July next year and fire damage repaired by March 2018. But city council staff say difficulties arose as new fire-related issues were uncovered. “Contractors have been concentrating on mould removal,

clearing the fire damaged portions and working on the design for the fire remediation,� city council manager capital delivery community Darren Moses said. The fire spread through the roof and top storey of the 152-year-old building, causing so much damage that part of the upstairs has had to be deconstructed. At the time of the fire, the city council was planning to tender out the earthquake strengthening and repair work. Due to the fire, tendering was pushed back to September

but the centre is still yet to be tendered. “The homestead applications will be filed once the detailed designs for both earthquake damage and fire damage have been completed,� Mr Moses said. The hall designs have been completed, but staff are making changes for a new toilet and bathroom layout. That’s also delayed the physical work which was expected to start next month. “A new date will be supplied once the latest design changes

have been made and consents submitted,� Mr Moses said. The fire and earthquake insurance issues have been kept separate and the fire repairs are expected to be done at a later date in March 2018. The centre had been insured for $5 million. Before the building was damaged it was used for a range of community education and school programmes. The building is currently being wrapped to protect the structure from the elements before construction begins.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK WHEN OPAWA’S Risingholme Community Centre will open has a question mark over it as the extent of the damage caused during the suspected arson attack in June is becoming clear (front page). It is an absolute shame that this grand old building, built 152 years ago, has had to endure not only earthquake damage, but suspected arson as well. Let’s hope that the city council can resolve the issues so we can see the building rise again. On a happier note, St Martins Community Centre reopened yesterday (page 3). The single-storey community centre was built in six months after the earthquakes. Community hubs not only provide essential social services, but there is usually someone on hand to have a cup of tea with and a natter. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

Special place for community Rebuilt in just six months, St Martins Community Centre opened yesterday after being destroyed in the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The rebuild took about $1 million and was completed in six months, built on the site of the demolished voluntary library on the corner of Wades Ave and Wilsons Rd. The single-storey community centre has a brick-lined hallway, with the St Martins Voluntary Library now re-established within it plus a spacious community hall. Heritage from the old St Martins Voluntary Library has also been incorporated into the new building. This includes a 1920s clock that hung in the original voluntary library and bricks salvaged from a house in Hackthorne Rd. High pitched ceilings and glass sliding doors at either end of the community hall allow light to flood the room and make it a welcoming space. For smaller gatherings, the room can be split into two. Plus Architecture designed the community centre and Hawkins Special Projects led the construction work. City council’s capital delivery

manager Darren Moses said it was a modern multifunctional space that can cater for a wide range of activities. Mr Moses said the new community centre had a residential feel to fit into the neighbourhood and incorporated a number of eco features, including solar panels on the roof and a rainwater harvesting system. “We’ve blended old and new to create something special for the people of St Martins,’’ Mr Moses said.

In Brief RAPAKI RD PARKING Consultation on installing no parking lines along parts of Rapaki Rd and part of Montgomery Tce will close tomorrow. The narrow road leads to Rapaki Track. 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. To make a submission go to SPEED LIMITS Consultation on the proposed speed limit changes in Halswell has closed. The city council is proposing speed limit changes to six roads within the area.They are Milns, Sutherlands, Sparks, Halswell Junction, Marshs and Quaifes Rd.

Councillor Tim Scandrett said it was great to have a new home for the much-valued St Martins Voluntary Library. “There’s been a community

presence on the site where the new community centre sits for close to 90 years so it’s a great to be able to add to that history,” he said.

ROAD REPAIRS Streets in Cashmere and Woolston are undergoing road works from Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team. Cashmere’s Dyers Pass Rd, between Westenra Tce and Hackthorne Rd will have a two-way traffic system in place while a manhole is installed. Meanwhile, in Woolston, St Johns St will be closed from Thursday for two weeks for road repairs, then the closure will move to St Lukes St.

Long week for firefighters


McMaster Heap

Veterinary practice

RefeRReal eye cases

The surgery was a success and 4 weeks on, Penny is a happy, active, normal wee puppy with a prosthetic right eye and normal vision out of the left eye.

Recently Dr Steve Heap examined 20 week old Beagle puppy called “Penny”, who presented as a referral with a painful, partially closed right eye. Penny had unfortunately been scratched in the eye by a slightly grumpy older resident cat. Steve diagnosed a cataract in this eye, with phacouveitis and serous glaucoma all in a little puppy. Glaucoma is when there is increased intraocular pressure causing pain and discomfort. Steve had discussed with the owners that this right eye had a hopeless prognosis for vision. Topical eye medications were instigated to control the pain and inflammation and rising pressure in the eye. Steve also discussed that if these medications didn’t hold this condition, Penny’s eye would need to be enucleated. Pretty quickly it was noticed that the right eye had deteriorated beyond medical therapy. Enucleation ( removal) of the eye and placement of an intrascleral prosthesis ( glass bead eye) was surgically undertaken to relieve Penny from a life of medication and pain.

Another interesting ophthalmology case for Dr Steve Heap came from the SPCA. A 5 month old stray sneezing kitten was examined by Steve and found to have no lateral upper eyelids in both the left and right eyes, a condition called Bilateral Upper Lateral Eyelid Agenisis. As a result the eyes were sore, dry and constantly irritated by hair rubbing on the cornea (the sensitive clear window of the eye). Steve trialled lubricants and antibiotic ointments in the eyes in the hope the eyes would be comfortable long term, but this wasn’t the case. The kitten was taken to surgery and Steve carefully and intricately created upper eyelids by harvesting strips of skin taken from below the lower lids. All in all a successful outcome for this wee kitten who will be rehomed and avoid a lifetime of medication.

Not all pets with enucleated eyes need to have prosthetics placed. Steve will often enucleate an eye and then stitch the lids together. This ends up cosmetically looking fine. Due to Penny’s very young age, her owners felt a prosthetic eye would look more pleasing on their cute wee pup.

Fire risk management officer Mark Thomas talks about the impact of last week’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake It felt like deja vu all over again just after midnight last Monday morning as the shaking that woke me went on, and on, and on. Since then, it’s become clear that Christchurch has dodged most of the consequences of the 7.8 magnitude quake. Which is just as well. I’m not sure that those still suffering from six years of earthquakerelated stress would be able to handle starting all over again. Part of the heroic stoicism being shown by the people of Kaikoura can be attributed to the fact this level of destruction is new for them. They are going to need every bit of help the rest of us in the region can provide in the next few years. In Christchurch on the night, a couple of fire alarm systems malfunctioned and the seaside brigades of Sumner, Governors Bay and Diamond Harbour spent time evacu-

ating vulnerable people in those hours that a tsunami was a possibility. Otherwise, the city was largely spared. Our Regional Command Centre at Kilmore St has been operating 24/7 this week to support our brigades in the affected areas. Firefighters and Urban Search And Rescue teams from Christchurch were flown to relieve the ex-

hausted Kaikoura brigade. Others have gone to Waiau. Elsewhere our national headquarters in Wellington has been evacuated until the building is cleared as sound and firefighters there have been involved in that city’s earthquake and weather issues. Not a great week for New Zealand.



This cute owl was bought into Steve recently due to opacities noted on its corneas affecting its’ ability to see clearly. Steve isn’t sure of the cause but is trialling antibiotic drops as he suspects an infective cause.

News Airport helps out community groups COMMUNITY groups around the city have received a helping hand from the Christchurch International Airport to continue their work in the city. Nine community groups received grants from the Christchurch Airport Community Fund. The groups included 180 Degrees Trust, Birthright Canterbury Trust, Christchurch Cathedral Choir, City Parks Community Patrol, DrugARM Trust, Halswell Hall Inc, Listen! Our Voices Count, Oak Development Trust and Papanui-Merivale Plunket. The airport’s chief aeronautical and commercial officer Justin Watson said the fund is made of coins dropped into collections boxes around the airport terminal. “We collect the money and convert the foreign currencies – as many as 14 at a time – then top up the money with a sizeable donation of our own, to support our communities – especially those which have viable projects under way but not enough funding to complete them,” he said. Mr Watson said the latest nine recipients include a radio programme for disabled citizens, a group which runs a community hall, and a group whose

He said the grant will help pay

for weekly activities which give vulnerable youth confidence and social skills.

He said they all demonstrated outreach activities into Christchurch communities, as well as sincere concern and caring for the people they work with.


Pool to open on Saturday RESIDENTS WILL have to wait until this weekend before they can use the Woodham Park paddling pool. The pool in Woodham Rd will open on Saturday, making it the last of all city council-operated outdoor pools to open for the summer season. The pool will have a brand new look though – with a marine-themed mural painted on the bottom of it. It was originally planned that the city’s paddling pools would open at Show Weekend, but wet and windy spring weather has caused delays. City council western area recreation manager Nigel Cox said previously the pools were painted each year before opening for the summer months, but this year the old paint has been stripped back and they are being covered with a non-slip resinbased paint that will last for 10 years. This coating needs to dry thoroughly to be fully effective and if it is applied in windy conditions it can be contaminated by dust or pollen.

No not really, my family doesn’t have a background of motor bike riding, I just got an interest when I was 10 or 11, my mother bought me a plastic model and that was it, motor bikes were for me. And from then on I was always out of school as quick as I could be to get on the bike and on the race track. I raced here in Christchurch and won the 250cc national championship in 1972, but then I got more into the mechanical side of things, more than the riding. Did riding ever take you to overseas competitions and races? At that time you could buy basically a grand prix level bike and go and race in the world championships and be competitive. So quite a lot of the Christchurch guys were doing things like that. One of my mates was at that level and went off to Europe in 1976 and I went off to help him. Were you his pit crew at that stage? Yes kind of. In those days it was just the two of you if you were lucky, otherwise you’d be doing everything yourself. I did 1974 on the same basis with another Christchurch rider.

Keas vie for nines title

Dress for the wedding

SMITH & BOSTON Prebbleton Village | Christchurch Ph: 03 349 5646

Pat Smith Trophy winners will take on the Hornby Panthers in its first game of the carnival tournament. The game will be a rematch of the Canterbury Rugby League grand-final. The Panthers finished runner up to the Keas in the club competition but will look to defend its Queenstown Nines title after winning the inaugural event last year. This year’s carnival will feature 10 teams, including Christchurch clubs, the Keas, Panthers and Riccarton Knights. After missing out on registration last year, the Keas are excited about the Queenstown tournament. “We’ve been together since the end of October for some touch and conditioning games. We’ve concentrated on the nines game a bit more over the last couple of weeks. The fundamentals are still the same in the nine-man game. Generating good ruck speed and winning that area is really important,” said Auimatagi. The Queenstown Nines Carnival will take place on Saturday. The Keas will play the Panthers, Kia Toa Tigers, Tumeke Natives and Invercargill Cooks in pool play.

„„ By Gordon Findlater THE LINWOOD Keas will have one of its key players available for this weekend’s Queenstown Nines Carnival. Matthew Sauni has been given the all-clear by the Warriors – who he has been training with this month – to represent his Christchurch club. The explosive centre has been in Auckland with the Warriors after an impressive club and representative campaign saw him sign a pre-season contract with the NRL side. The Keas have the majority of its Pat Smith Trophy winning team available for the tournament and will be led by regular coach Andrew Auimatagi. “We’re definitely going down there to try and take it out, but it’s also a great way to end our year. We’ve got a group of around 30 heading down, including supporters and staff, so it will just be cool to get away and enjoy each others company,” said Auimatagi. This will be the first time the Keas have competed in the league carnival, which is now in its second year. This year’s

Test your sense of adventure Whether it is mountain biking, walking, thrill seeking or coffee, Christchurch Adventure Park aims to offer something for everyone. Bridget Rutherford reports FIVE YEARS ago, Canadian leisure developer Select Evolution was keen to build a new adventure park. It searched the United Kingdom, Europe, and even Queenstown and Auckland, to no avail. But in 2011, Christchurch mountain biker Tim Prebble was sitting on a chairlift next to a woman at Whistler Blackcomb – a mountain bike park in British Columbia. The woman was working at the park as a coach. But not only did she work there, she was one of the brains behind it – Select Evolution chairwoman Fiona Sutton. Mr Prebble suggested Select should develop a similar adventure park in Christchurch, but she told him there was nowhere suitable. But Mr Prebble knew just the

and zip lines. Within three months Ms Sutton visited the site. “One thing led to another,” Select Evolution programme developer Darron Charity said. But fate and a bit of luck weren’t the only things that brought the development to

Christchurch. “It took a hell of a lot of hard work to get it across the line,” he said. When phase one of the Christchurch Adventure Park is completed in December it will be the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

To date it has cost $25 million. The Government and city council’s Development Christchurch each contributed $2 million, while the remaining funding had come from a bank loan, New Urban Group, and investment from the United States, Singapore and New Zealand.

at new Port Hills leisure park “We’ll have to go to market to secure funding for the next phase,” Mr Charity said. He said the developers, manufacturers and contractors had crammed 20 months of work into eight, just to get the park open as a Christmas present for Christchurch. There could be up to 150 contractors on site each day, while there were another 100 people working on it off site, he said. Construction began in April, and already, the early bird season pass tickets have sold out. More tickets aimed at casual users and families will be released this month. What’s more is the park is on schedule and on budget, he said. “We set a budget four years ago and we’re still delivering on it. It’s extremely tight.” The majority of the new tracks had been carved – some with diggers, but the more technical ones have been built by hand, with the help of volunteers armed with shovels and rakes. Each jump has been designed by engineers. The 8km green track has a gradient of about 3-4 per cent, while the 5km blue track is about 5-6 per cent.

FITS IN: The cafe and bar is being built by Amalgamated Builders out of douglas fir – the same timber as the trees that surrounds it.

The hardest – the 5km black track – is where the jumps are introduced and is for more experienced riders. Riders from the age of seven can have a go at mountain biking at the park, and a track will be installed for under five-year-olds next to the cafe. Mr Charity said the park would get more people outdoors and into the sport. There would be 16 coaches at the park, and mountain bikes and safety equipment could be hired, he said. “This is a sport progression park.”

But it’s not just for mountain and downhill biking. There is also a walking track, you could enjoy a coffee or a drink at the cafe and bar, not to mention the activities for thrill seekers. Four dual zip lines have been installed in different parts of the park – with one being 180m off the ground. At 1.8km, the electric-powered chairlift will be the largest in New Zealand, with the ability to hold 56 chairs at any one time. At the top, it will be 450m high. People will be able to ride the chairlift to get to the top of

the park, where they can either use the tracks to come down, head up to the Summit Rd, or ride the zip lines down. Four people could fit in each chair, with a stand for them to park their bikes in. Mr Charity said the douglas fir trees below the chairlift had to be cut down before a drone was used to take footage of the route. It was then sent over to Austrian manufacturer Doppelmayr, which built the towers before shipping them to Lyttelton, he said. Mr Charity said contractors spent three months doing

concrete work in preparation for the tower installation, which took a month. At the entrance to the park, three douglas fir timber buildings sit amongst the forestry, housing the ticketing reception, the hire facilities and a cafe and bar, which could seat up to 180 people. Mr Charity said the cafe and bar would stock local produce and drinks, including Cassels and Sons Brewery beer and wine from Black Estate, Waipara. “It has to feel like Christchurch,” he said. •Turn to page 13

Southern View Smart new salon offers ‘fabulous’ styling & breath of fresh air Hello

A smart new hairdressing business with an intriguing name has opened at the Cracroft shops in Cashmere Road. Hair stylist Rebecca Wilson took over the premises just over two months ago, naming her new salon 50 Shades of Fabulous. “When I was trying to decide on a name I ran a competition on my Facebook page. One of my friends came up with an idea, which I liked, but it was already being used so I changed it slightly and it became 50 Shades of Fabulous,” Rebecca says. The salon itself has been completely redecorated, and now features the crisp, contemporary look of fresh white walls with bright splashes of colour and smart black salon equipment. “I wanted to create a friendly, happy environment for clients, so they enjoy being here and leave feeling like they’ve had a breath of fresh air,” Rebecca says. Working in the salon with Rebecca is Jessica Braam, who rents a chair and

Adventure park set to open next month •From page 11 There will eventually be 235 car parks, and the entire park will be smoke-free. Mr Charity said phase two would see the construction of a 1.5km mountain coaster, a luge on a track which would travel up to 80km/h. The New York designers visited recently to plan it. That is expected to be completed by December, 2017. The village is also part of phase two, which eventually would have 282 beds. Mr Charity said they hoped to host school camps, and could teach students about the forest and ecology, along with groups wanting to do team-building exercises. The benefit the park would have on the city’s economy was a huge driver for the project, he said. “We’ve always seen this as a major boost for New Zealand tourism. It attracts the overnight stay in Christchurch,” he said. It is expected to bring another 30,000 bed-nights to Christchurch, he said. The park would also employ between 100 and 120 staff, most of them local.

investment, she’d go and sit at the site and say it has to happen and now it’s a reality.” Downhill mountain biker Lachlan Cruickshank said the park was one of the reasons he moved to Christchurch, and he had already snapped up a season pass. “It is going to be one of the best bike parks in the Southern Hemisphere and could develop Christchurch into a real mecca of the sport going forward.” Mr Charity said Select Evolution had a 50-year lease for the land, and it hoped to continue to develop more of it. “There’s at least 120km of track that we can develop in here. There’s so much scope.” He said it was a “legacy project” and as a cyclist himself, was looking forward to riding it rather than working on it. “I didn’t expect to be working 100-hour weeks. But to see the park come to life is always a dream. It’s exceeded my expectations in what it’s become.”

Halswell hairdresser proud of True Grit team TRUE GRIT Hair owner Jacqui Victor, of Halswell, can claim to be a cut above the rest after her salon won a top award. The central city business was named Salon of the Year at the Kitomba New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers’ Business Awards. Mrs Victor celebrated with her team as they took out the national award and collected another three titles along the way – the Grand Salon of the Year, Excellence in Marketing and Best Salon Design. Looking back over the past six years, Mrs Victor and her team have endured eight moves to different salons after experiencing devastating damage to their salons in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. Since then, her strength and determination, combined with her team’s commitment and love for True Grit and their clients, has meant they are now in an amazing new salon and making a huge mark in the industry. “We’re so honoured to be New Zealand Salon of the Year and winners of three business

awards,” Mrs Victor said. “It was totally unexpected because the calibre of the other entrants was so high. We’re extremely proud of our amazing True Grit team. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today, and we’re so happy to have shared it with them last night.” Kitomba chief executive Tom Murphy commented on True Grit’s success: “A huge congratulations to True Grit and especially Jacqui. I have huge admiration for Jacqui – she is the consummate leader, the consummate professional. Seeing Jacqui lead her team

and business out from under the devastation of the earthquakes to rebuild and take the award for the best New Zealand salon business is really inspiring,” he said. “This award is part of an ongoing demonstration of excellence from True Grit. We’ve seen True Grit win the (Hair and Beauty Industry Training Organisation) Training Salon of the Year award two years in a row and they’ve been strong contenders in the business awards and other competitions both here and in Australia. This award is a great achievement and well

deserved,” Mr Murphy said. More than 300 hairdressers, barbers and beauty therapists celebrated at Sunday’s industry awards. The annual awards are a collaboration between Kitomba Salon Software, NZARH and HITO. Founded in 2006, the Kitomba NZARH Business Awards were created to build a culture of recognising and celebrating business excellence in the New Zealand hairdressing industry. Since 2010, the awards have been celebrated together with the HITO Training Awards.

Cramping pain in my leg when I try to walk

to use the gym by themselves to keep on top of their claudication. At Physical Sense they have been going strong with the Intermittent Claudication class ever since the first class eight years ago. You can try the classes for FREE. If you want to continue and you have WINZ support, WINZ usually pays for the classes (as WINZ is VERY supportive of these classes).

Intermittent Claudication “This is different from “night-cramps” Ietje van Stolk, (physiotherapist at Physical Sense and the centre for Senior Well-being) explains. increase the blood flow to the legs IF THE DEMAND is there. It is like every thing in the body……..”use it or lose it”. Unfortunately many people with this condition end up in a vicious cycle; the pain stops the walking, and the lack of walking increases the problem. Exercise is recommended to greatly reduce symptoms and to increase pain free walking distance. Eight years ago on request of the vascular nurse in Christchurch hospital, Physical Sense started a two weekly circuit for Intermittent Claudication patients. The pilot program started with 50 clients. • 82% of all clients, experienced improvement in their walking distance • Quite a number of clients doubled their walking distance, for some it even became limitless. • After a year 88% of clients were still active • There was an exceptionally low dropout rate of only 8% • The 18% who did not notice a difference in relation to their walking distance still enjoyed all the other benefits of exercise (to heart, lungs, sugar levels, bone health,

This kind of cramping (sometimes called “window -shopping legs”) is triggered by normal exertion of the leg muscles and is typically caused by obstruction of the arteries. Sufferers have to find themselves a regular excuse to stop for a while to allow the blood flow to reach the cramped up muscles. The official name for this condition is Intermittent Claudication. Claudication is pain and/or cramping in the lower leg due to inadequate blood flow to the muscles. The pain usually causes the person to limp. The word “claudication” comes from the Latin “claudicare” meaning to limp. Claudication typically is felt while walking, and subsides with rest. It is commonly referred to as “intermittent” claudication because it comes and goes with exertion and rest. In severe claudication, the pain is also felt at rest. It is a painful condition that really “cramps people’s lifestyle”. The pain free walking distance tends to get shorter as the condition progresses. If you suffer from this condition it is crucial to understand that the body actually finds a way to

balance and mood etc.) People always start in a group, so they get the benefit of a guided introduction to more exercise and the use of the gym. In the groups we are looking at 50-80+ year olds that are giving their legs a workout by using steppers, treadmills, stationary bikes and other exercise stations. That way they also benefit from working out with people who suffer the same problems. “It is amazing the support and wisdom people receive from each other” Ietje says. In this “circuit setup” every client can work in their own tempo, and people simply sit down and have a rest when the “cramping in the leg” becomes too much. Some people stay in the group and some choose

This NZ invention has helped thousands of New Zealanders for years. “My leg muscles are so much stronger and my circulation greatly improved.” reported a 93 year old. “ And I can sleep the night undisturbed by cramps – a real bonus!” . It’s a great circulation booster, reduces swollen ankles, helps relieve joint and muscle pain, strengthen leg muscles to support joints and improve balance and mobility. “After a 26 hour flight, I skipped off the plane with no ankle swelling”, said Tess Rowley. An Aircycle could be the best present you buy this year – not only taking the pain out of Christmas but giving someone lasting health benefits and years of pain relief. Aircycles have a lifetime guarantee, are available from pharmacies, Diabetes Christchurch, Aspire Canterbury and More Mobility. For more information visit , phone 04 569 5013 or post $39.90 (p&p included) to Aircycle, PO Box 45105, Waterloo, Lower Hutt.

Blood Pressure is an indicator of cardiovascular as well as overall health. Healthy blood flow is vital for a healthy body as the blood plasma transports nutrients, hormones, metabolic waste, oxygen and CO2 throughout the body. An area in the brain keeps check on blood flow to ensure health of all cells and the organs they make up. If blood flow is reduced the brain will try to normalise blood flow by adjusting the heart strength, frequency (Pulse Rate) as well as the width of blood vessels all via the nervous system. Over a period of time the blood pressure may keep increasing due to the deterioration of blood flow. A higher B/P is not ideal and is considered a major risk factor for strokes, aneurysm, organ failure and heart failure. Even moderate elevation of B/P is considered a major reason for shorter life expectancy. If we can maintain our B/P in the normal range our overall health will be improved. Systolic B/P (The upper figure) is when the heart contracts and pushes blood

Instant Pain Relief – Needleless Acupuncture A newly discovered needleless acupuncture technique has clients singing its praises. “Before the treatment my neck was so stiff, I could hardly turn it to the right. After the simple, short procedure I left pain free and with the ability to move. It lasted for several weeks which was wonderful. I had a serious accident that has affected my neck for years and have done many therapies with little results. Although I do return for additional procedures, they are minimal and the effects are lasting longer and longer between appointments,” said Bryan, 67. “I have cried many times by the end of the day because the pain and discomfort from the arthritis in my hands is excruciating,” says Debbie, 62. “Dr. Lan’s sessions have offered me extended relief and the chance to have more mobility and ease.” Acupuncture is a highly trusted and frequently used therapy in Eastern medicine. Lan Xiao’s more than thirty years of experience as an acupuncturist had her questioning the effectiveness and advancement of this ancient practice. She is considered an expert in mapping out the human body and determining the comparisons between the meridians and acupressure points. Her interest is configuring the effectiveness of the patient assessment and through more than twenty years of development she has tested with

tremendously results the needleless process of acupuncture with its long lasting results. Christchurch-based Chinese health practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a method of treatment, which she says has an immediate effect on a wide variety of pains and health conditions. It is known as ‘acupuncture without needles’. Lan describes it as being similar to reflexology in that the problem area on the body is determined through pressure, but is much more accurate. Trained as a medical practitioner in China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992 and began practising acupuncture in 1995. From that discipline she created her acupuncture without needles, and uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body. This can include arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury. Trained as a medical practitioner in China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992 and began practising acupuncture in 1995. From that discipline she created her acupuncture without needles, and uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body. This can include arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury. “For example, the treatment has been very successful for people who have painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan says. Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels, she says. “As people age their energy is reduced, and this can lead to other health problems. The acupuncture without needles treatment is like the body’s battery being charged up again, so their energy levels are restored, which in turn helps overcome their health problems.” Lan also uses it to treat depression and anxiety, and says it can help with addiction problems as well. “After the treatment the person has no cravings – because it treats the cause of the addiction.” She says the results are immediate, though people may

I also asked Simon about the current problems related to safe lead removal. Simon says. “Because there is no lead dust created through sanding, or lead vapour generated by heat guns, lead poisoning is no longer a concern” I asked Simon what the Stripping Expo is all about and he said, “The Stripping Expo is a DIY paint and varnish stripping exhibition travelling regionally throughout New Zealand.” “The purpose of the Stripping Expo is to show Cooper’s stripping any paint or varnish from any surface.” Simon says our next expo is at the Bridge Club in Christchurch, “We have on exhibition some impressive before and after displays, as well as practical one on one demonstrations.” Come and meet the family, chat to us about your project, bring along some photos of what you want to strip and we’ll select a similar old piece of paint or varnish to strip with you.” But what Simon really wants you to do is actually bring along your project, or a piece of it, no matter how big or small. bring a chair, a drawer, unscrew a window sash, a door, a piece of moulding or even your project car or boat and they will really show you what Cooper’s is capable of doing.

“I was sick of how difficult it was to use the current strippers, and knew sanding was a complete waste of time,” Simon says. “Why sand when the person who made the item, sanded it in the first place? I was determined to make a product that was easy to use and made sanding obsolete.” Simon is Kiwi-born and bred and as a dairy farmer’s son he was taught at a young age to work things out, rather than to accept things as they are. At high school he developed a passion for working with wood and his love of fine furniture began. Once Simon developed his own stripper, the word got out and today, over 30 years later, Simon’s products and methods are now known as Cooper’s Strip Club; a Simon Cooper from the Cooper’s strip club complete DIY restoration By Dave Hare, system, family owned and operated, available Coopers was started by Simon Cooper in the early throughout New Zealand and Australia. 80’s.
