CORRECT: The lights at the intersection of Colombo St and Edgeware Rd are only triggered if a car is in the above position. Right: Cars parking to the left of the intersection do not trigger the lights.

Recipe for disaster as rat-runners avoid busy intersection queue „„ By Julia Evans FRUSTRATED motorists waiting for a green light at a busy intersection are taking short cuts through a bar’s car park – which the owner says is a recipe for disaster. And if someone is injured it will be the city council’s fault, co-owner of Bailies Bar and Restaurant, Richard Norton said. His bar is on the busy intersection of Colombo St and Edgeware Rd. Drivers cut through the car park to avoid the lights.

The underground detectors on Colombo St are adjacent to the centre line, as there is car parking next to the kerb for the shops. “Unfortunately, some drivers are stopping adjacent to the kerb when waiting at the limit line and therefore the traffic signal phase for Colombo St is not being called,” he said. Mr Cooney said the city council would not be putting in more sensors to trigger the lights. He said if a vehicle parked with no intention of going through, the signals would change the phase allowing for movement

The city council has received six complaints about the lights that were installed as part of the Papanui Parallel cycleway.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK TWO CASEBROOK Intermediate pupils are off tomorrow to the world’s hottest spot at the moment – the Korean peninsula. Ben Donaldson and Bronte Perriam are off to a problem solving competition in South Korea. How ironic is that! They will represent New Zealand at the e-ICON World Contest in Busan, and will be accompanied by deputy principal Nick Leith (see page 6). Nick told reporter Julia Evans he wasn’t too concerned about the volatile situation between North Korea and the United States. “We’re focusing on all the opportunity to work in a positive environment to help solve global issues,” he said If they come up with any ideas maybe they should call Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump. And on page 1 read about chaos of another kind – traffic. – Barry Clarke

News Council in tough spot over sign „„ By Julia Evans CITY COUNCIL staff are between a rock and a hard place regarding a contentious sign on the fence of 85 Westminster St, St Albans. That was the view expressed by the Papanui-Innes Community Board at its meeting on Friday. The sign, which reads “St Albans children matter, slow down”, was put up by St Albans School parent Rachel Donaldson in a bid to put the spotlight on dangerous driving in the area. The city council’s compliance team had to investigate the sign after receiving a complaint and found it was illegal. It said the sign “does not comply with the District Plan”. When asked by Nor’West News why the sign does not comply with the plan, city council principal adviser of regulatory compliance Claire Le Grice said no further comment could be made until investigations were complete. Board chairwoman Ali Jones said the city council can’t “pick and choose” when to uphold complaints. “What I find interesting is

the complaint itself. I don’t know who would complain and why? It’s hardly a neon flashing sign but then again, people are within their rights to make a complaint,” she said. Board member Jo Byrne said it was frustrating how the city council was working in two different ways. One faction was working to

address dangerous driving in the area and the other is saying the signs must be removed. “They [the city council] should be working with Rachel towards making the sign legal rather than telling her to take it down,” Ms Byrne said. In the meantime Christchurch Central Labour candidate Duncan Webb has provided a

In Brief ALL-ACCESS PLAYGROUND A working party has been established for an all-access playground earmarked for the Papanui area. Papanui-Innes Community Board member Jo Byrne and city councillor Mike Davidson have joined the party along with members of the Papanui Youth Development Trust and Allenvale and Ferndale schools. Currently, St James Park is the most likely location for the playground which will offer play equipment that can be used by children of all abilities. NURSERY NOT A PARK Harewood Park will be renamed Harewood Nursery to avoid confusion over whether it is a public space. The 11.2ha nursery is not open to the public and is used to grow trees and plants for city council parks, street landscaping and the regeneration of native bush and wetlands. BLAIR AVE NO STOPPING New no-stopping restrictions will be put in on Blair Ave, Papanui. The restrictions, between KFC and the block of shops on the corner, will cover just over 4m. They will be put in place to stop vehicles blocking a driveway.

MODERN: Davinia Sutton’s bathroom design won a supreme award for its beautiful elegance. ​

Designer on a roll FOR THE second year in a row, Merivale interior designer Davinia Sutton has won a top national prize. Judges called Ms Sutton’s bathroom design “beautiful and elegant” when Elmwood they gave her a supreme award at the New Zealand Kitchen and Bathroom Excellence in Design Awards in Sydney last week.

Meet Indy, an 11 year old speyed Lab cross, who presented for a hind leg mass. Indy has previously had tumors removed so the owners knew what to expect and wanted to get this mass checked out as it seemed to grow quite quickly. Indy was not bothered by it though and she wasn’t lame on the leg. Indy is a very special patient of mine as she has had not one but two knee surgeries about 4 years ago (2 months apart), to repair ruptured cranial cruciate ligaments. Fortunately her stifles give her no problems and she enjoys a very fit and active social life. Olivia performed a FNA ( fine needle aspirate) on the large mass, that was very inflamed and was golf ball sized. Unfortunately she saw lots of “mast cells” under the microscope, giving a diagnosis of Mast Cell tumor ( MCT ). These tumors are malignant, grow fast and will set up in other sites quickly. Her only option was surgical removal to hopefully limit the spread and extend her life. Indy was admitted, blood tests performed in house and chest xrays taken to make sure the mass hadn’t spread. Catherine ultrasounded her liver as well to check tumor spread. All looked clear. There is no point subjecting Indy to a major surgery if we saw gross changes in other organs. We will never go in and operate on a malignant tumor without first making absolutely sure we cant detect disease elsewhere. Indy was then anaesthetized, connected to our Cardell monitoring machine and placed on intravenous fluids, then taken to surgery to remove her MCT. Kirsty, her surgeon, also had to remove the associated draining popliteal lymph node as it was enlarged and very close to the tumor. A wide resection was undertaken to ensure no tumor tissue was left behind. The mass will be sent off for histopathology to make sure no tissue was left behind. In 10 days after surgical removal, Indy will be back to her old self, charging around as though nothing has happened. Ultrasound is a widely used diagnostic tool at McMaster & Heap Vets. It would

The year 8 Casebrook Intermediate School pupils won’t be advising Donald Trump or Kim Jong Un on how to diffuse the tense situation, but they will be representing New Zealand at the Bronte e-ICON World Perriam Contest in Busan, South Korea. They leave tomorrow and will be accompanied by deputy principal Nick Leith. Held at the Ulsan National Institute Ben Donaldson of Science and Technology, the competition is centred around designing an “interactive digital resource” to help solve problems of the future, something the United States and North Korea might need help with.

„„ By Julia Evans ELDERLY RESIDENTS living near Northlands Shopping Centre are struggling to walk to and from the bus stop. Because the distance between the two stops by the mall on Main North Rd falls outside city council policy, the PapanuiInnes Community Board is investigating. A stop on Main North Rd outside Countdown was removed to make way for the Papanui Parallel cycleway. City councillor Mike Davidson said he has been approached by several elderly residents who wanted the bus stop reinstated. Cr Davidson found it was 650m between the bus stops, but said it should be less than 500m. He said city council staff are looking into the possibility of putting another stop possibly near the intersection of Main North and Sawyers Arms Rds. “Due to the new signalised crossing for the cycleway, there was insufficient space for the bus stop directly outside Countdown,” city council head of transport Chris Gregory said.

So eager, they’ve already been in touch with the pupils from the school and have working on their Korean language skills. “Ben and Bronte are getting to know some of the other kids and picking up basic language skills. They’ve realised the importance of trying to connect through language,” he said. There will be an Olympic-style opening ceremony before the competition begins. Mr Leith said he expects it will “blow their minds.” “South Korean organisations tend to make massive deals out of ceremony – it’ll be incredible,” he said. And after four days of competition, Ben, Bronte and their teacher will have a day to soak up the sights of Busan before heading back to the airport. “It’s a bit of a whirlwind trip,” he said.

Readers respond to the article about the city council upholding a complaint about a sign discouraging dangerous driving in St Albans

Michael Stringer – Constant CCTV on all intersections to record red light runners. That will allow unemployment to drop as imagine how many staff would be required to review footage. But city council needs to put arrows on intersections and fix phasing as often the Bealey Ave and Papanui Rd intersection phasing is screwed up.

Cathryn Lucy – How is this any different to Mount Pleasant School and their students putting “40km/h” road signs all over the hill with their “over the hill at 40” campaign a year or so back? Just wondering why that was allowed and this isn’t?

Judith Collins – Why aren’t there more arrow turning lights at intersections then maybe there wouldn’t be so many racing the red light.

Kevin Garty – Just paint the message on your fence, it’s not a “sign” then. What total tossers, the biggest tosser is whoever complained, the second largest tosser is the person who acted on the complaint. Pamela Neil – It should be a law as it is here and has been for many years. 40km/h in school zones 7-9am and 2-4pm. Jan Lowe – Who would complain about that and I’m guessing the council must have done all its chores around the city if they have time to bully someone over a sign. Jane Harwood – Put it on the inside of fence nice and high so can been seen. These are necessary signs.

Lynda Byrnes – There are a lot of intersections on main roads, where you never get a chance to turn right if you don’t run the red light. Giving them an extra few seconds will make this less dangerous for everyone. If they can’t bring in more turning arrows, this is an ideal option. Vaughan Winsloe – So it hasn’t actually “thwarted” any red light runners at all, it’s just given them a longer period to break the law. Chris Todd – Run a red light, instant one month loss of licence and a $1000 fine.

Training soldiers in Papanui during WW2 Murray Williams, chairman of the Papanui Heritage Group, writes about what life was like in the suburb during World War 2 THE WAR years were difficult ones for most New Zealanders and the experiences of those who lived in Papanui were probably typical. The first adjustment was the effect of the disappearance of many of the young men in the area – either because they volunteered for service in the armed forces or because they were conscripted. In the first years of the war, the New Zealand Division served in Greece, Crete and North Africa and, although the casualty rate was a huge concern for those with family members involved, in another sense the war seemed remote from the everyday lives of many New Zealanders. However, increasing tension

WE NEED YOU: A Government attempt to increase interest in volunteering for home service throughout the country and in Papanui. ​

in the Pacific led to the realisation that New Zealand could be vulnerable to direct attack. Those men who were not serving overseas were exhorted to join local units of the Home Guard, an invitation that later became compulsory for those who were able-bodied and aged between 35 and 50. The Papanui company was commanded by J.A. Gregor and was based at the Papanui Technical College in Langdons Rd. The training programme revolved around drill, route marches and lectures. But it was realised that to maintain enthusiasm, activities more relevant to defending the country should be encouraged. In May 1941, the Papanui unit joined those from Waimairi and Elmwood in an exercise on the Harewood golf course. Papanui’s role was to join Waimairi as the ‘enemy’ while Elmwood attempted to ‘dislodge’ them. The Royal New Zealand Air Force contributed an aircraft to simulate dive bombing and strafing and the lack of military hardware was solved by the use

of flour bombs as hand grenades and tin rattles as machine guns. The exercise was observed by the national commander of the Home Guard, Major General Young, who expressed his satisfaction with the practical nature of the training. This exercise was to have consequences for at least one member of the Papanui unit. A local resident, the late Shona Elliott (née Turton) recalled that when her father returned from the exercise with his clothes covered in flour, he received a most hostile reception from her mother. Nevertheless, Home Guard exercises continued and the men were gradually equipped with uniforms, boots and rifles. By late 1943, it had become obvious that the threat of invasion had receded and the Home Guard units were disestablished. Uniforms had to be returned to the army but the former guardsmen were allowed to keep their army-issue boots. •References: Papers Past, Mollie Chalklen Papers, Nancy Taylor, The Home Front.

CBHS to meet Nelson in UC champs semi „„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High will host Nelson College in the UC Championship semi-final on Saturday as they look to defend their title. CBHS cruised to victory 57-21 in their final round-robin game against Lincoln Combined at the weekend. They previously defeated fourth placed Nelson 13-11 in a tight encounter on June 24. Going into the weekend, CBHS looked odds on to face third placed Timaru Boys’ High in the semi-final. However, St Andrew’s College pulled off a spirited comeback to defeat Nelson 43-42. The win wasn’t enough for fifth placed St Andrew’s to qualify for the top four. They will now turn their attention to the plate competition, played between the fifth to eighth placed finishers. UC Championship semi-finals (home side first): CBHS v Nelson College Christs’ College v TBHS. Plate semi-finals: St Andrew’s v Waimea Combined St Thomas v Rangiora High

No 1 St Thomas meet Burnside in semi „„ By Andrew King ST ANDREW’S College and Burnside High have made the semi-finals in the Connetics first XI football competition tomorrow. Burnside finished fourth and will play minor premiership winners St Thomas at 4pm, while St Andrew’s finished second and will take on third placed Cashmere High at 6pm. Both semi-finals will be played at English Park. St Andrew’s previously met Cashmere in round two, with Cashmere taking a 4-2 win at the Christchurch Football Centre, where all league games were played this year. St Andrew’s football co-ordinator Matt Jansen said they have learnt a lot since that loss. “[We are] looking forward to playing them again and embracing the challenges that the game will bring. We know that we can play good football on our day,” he said. Cashmere coach Craig Squire is not taking the boys from

Papanui Rd lightly. “[St Andrew’s] will be a hard side to break down with a very talented squad,” he said. “However, the boys have the self-belief, skill and desire to win . . . the boys are ready for the challenge.” Burnside were beaten 3-1 by St Thomas in round seven. St Thomas coach Richard Washington said it will be a fantastic match to be a part of. “As I have always said, any of the top six sides can beat anybody on the day. Wednesday will be no different and we will have to deliver our best

performance to beat a very capable quality side,” he said. Burnside coach David Williams said getting the defensive line right will be key. “Knocking them in is not the problem, we have scored 50 this season. But we have let a few in, so if we can minimise our mistakes at the back, we will be fine,” he said. All four teams finished the regular season last week with wins, scoring 18 goals between them. Burnside beat Riccarton High 4-1, St Andrew’s beat Christ’s College 4-0, Cashmere

Final points table: 1. St Thomas, 30pts, GD 29/1; 2. St Andrew’s, 27pts, GD 32-2; 3. Cashmere High, 26pts, GD 26/3; 4. Burnside High, 26pts, GD 25/4; 5. St Bede’s, 25pts, GD 10/5; 6. Lincoln High, 21pts, GD 17/6; 7. SBHS, 16pts, GD -1/7; 8. CBHS, 13pts, GD -3-8; 9. Papanui High, 13pts, GD -16/9; 10. Riccarton High, 11pts, GD -7/10; 11. Middleton, 8pts, GD -7/11; 12. Christ’s College, 6pts, GD -30/12; 13. Rangiora High, 3pts, GD -72/13 beat Rangiora High 8-0 and St Thomas clinched top spot with a 2-0 win over Christchurch Boys’ High. Burnside will also retain the Connetics Shield. There will also be plate semi-finals played for by teams who finished fifth to eighth. St Bede’s will play CBHS at 4pm tomorrow and Lincoln High will play SBHS at 6pm at Christchurch Football Centre.

Unbeaten CGHS rugby side go for third straight UC Cup „„ By Andrew King CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High will be looking for a three-peat in the UC Cup when they take on Burnside-Rangi tomorrow. Unbeaten in all eight games

this season, the side has racked up 497 points while only letting in 119. A win will see them clinch the automatic qualifiers berth in the Crusaders region, which will pit them against the top team from

the Highlanders competition on August 26. Southland Girls’ High is the most likely contender for CGHS if they win at 3.30pm at the Ilam Fields. A win in that game then puts them in the mix to compete for the national top

Davidson, 18, will start a four-year stint at the University of Virginia and race in the National Collegiate Athletic Association division one competition, which includes more than 350 universities across the US. “I am extremely excited to settle in and get stuck into the American lifestyle, as well as the rowing and school work,” she said. She always wanted a “unique university experience”, so she buckled down and worked hard at school and put the hours in to be recognised as a rowing talent.

2 Shallots, medium, or a small onion 60g Butter 250g Brown rice, short grain ½ cup White wine 3 Tbsp Mint leaves, chopped 1 handful Parmesan cheese 4 Courgette flowers, optional

ROASTED CARROTS WITH ORANGES AND AVOCADO Ingredients 2 cloves Garlic, crushed 1 Red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 1 tsp Cumin seeds, toasted and ground 4 Tbsp Olive oil 500g Carrots, small, scrubbed ½ cup Vegetable stock 3 Oranges 1 Avocado, firm and ripe, halved, stone removed and peeled 1 Lemon, juiced ¼ cup Pomegranate seeds, optional 1 handful Basil leaves Directions Heat the oven to 200 deg C. Place the garlic, chilli and cumin in a small bowl and mix with one tablespoon olive oil to make a paste. Place carrots in an ovenproof dish and rub with the garlic paste. Pour ½ cup vegetable stock into the corner of the dish to prevent unsettling the paste. Cover the dish with foil and place in the oven. Roast carrots for 20-25min until just tender.

Directions

Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Place carrots on a serving plate and reserve cooking juices. Segmenting an orange: Cut the top and bottom off the orange. Place one of the cut sides down on a board. Starting at the top and following the contour of the orange, cut off the skin, leaving no white pith behind. Working over a bowl to catch the juice, cut between the membranes to release orange segments, reserve juice. Place segments on top of the carrots as you go. Repeat with remaining oranges. Slice the avocado and place on the salad. Squeeze over the lemon juice.

Make a dressing by whisking the reserved orange juice with the remaining oil and flavour with some or all of the carrot juices. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle over enough dressing to moisten the salad. Scatter over pomegranate seeds, if using, and the basil leaves. COURGETTES, MINT AND BROWN RICE Ingredients 300g Courgettes 400g Broad beans 1 Ltr Vegetable stock, hot

Wipe the courgettes, then slice them. Put them in a colander in the sink, generously grind salt over them and leave for at least 20min. Pod the beans, cook them for 7-10min in very lightly salted boiling water, then drain. If the beans are large and you have the inclination, pop them out of their skins. Heat the stock in a saucepan and keep warm over a low heat. Peel the shallots or onion and chop finely. Cook in 40g of butter until soft but not coloured, stirring regularly so they don’t brown. Add the rice, stir to coat the grains in the butter, then pour in the wine. Let it almost evaporate, then start to add the hot stock a ladleful at a time, stirring almost continuously. You will find that the rice will take a good 40min to cook to tenderness – that is,

Continue cooking then, as the rice is almost cooked, add the beans, chopped mint and, if you are using them, the courgette flowers. Check the seasoning, adding black pepper and a little salt (you may not need any salt at all), then stir in the remaining butter and the grated parmesan. Serve in warm shallow bowls, with a little more cheese if you wish.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp which can be associated with health problems. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home. Specially adapted for our New Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently, is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

The facts about home ventilation Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure Under the New Zealand Building Code, all buildings, including residential, need to be suitably ventilated, either with opening windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this provision is to safeguard people from illness or loss of amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced, or mechanical, ventilation over opening windows, including warmth, security, reduction of outside noises and reduction of condensation. Traditional domestic ventilation systems are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from outside via the roof space and force the stale air out through gaps around windows and doors. The incoming air from these systems has to be heated or cooled to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer. The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It extracts air from the house and at the same time brings in fresh air. These two streams of air pass through a heat exchanger, which warms incoming air in winter and cools in summer if air conditioning is being used. This means that up to 80% of the energy which would be

r

nsfe a r T at

He

wasted using a traditional positive pressure system is recovered, resulting in significant energy savings and therefore lower heating or cooling costs. Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation systems have been considerably more expensive than traditional positive pressure systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390 balanced pressure system can be installed for a similar price as a traditional positive pressure system.

Roslyn Eason, fully trained and experienced early childhood teacher, owns and operates Marshlands Nest Early Learning Centre which is an intimate centre with a maximum of 25 children. Roslyn says “Our goal is to create a setting where self-esteem, love, learning and respect for others is prominent and where every child leaves each day feeling secure and loved in their special environment. At Marshlands Nest they create a most positive environment for children so they can learn through all experiences and interactions but most importantly through play.

Your child will run, climb trees, dig, bike, play with balls, and help tend our edible gardens in our natural backyards.

They have a mixed licence which means children of different ages play and interact with each other. It allows siblings to be together and gives solo children a chance to be part of a larger family. It also means children do not need to transition between rooms so can stay with the same teachers and children. Marshlands Nest does recognize the need for age specific learning and a portion of each day is spent in ‘nest times” learning with others of the same age. The team at Marshland Nest would love to have you as part of their family, please feel free to drop in or give them a call.

Migraine relief Your headache or migraine may literally be a pain in the neck

It’s not very well known that almost 13 percent of people – including childrensuffer from headaches and migraines. It is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world and causes 91 percent of the people it affects to miss work or reduce their functional capacity. In the past 10 years, the understanding of what causes headaches and migraines has significantly changed. The research now shows that the sensitisation of the brain stem in

your neck is what causes this pain; and the specially trained physiotherapists at Muscle People are well versed in how to treat it. Krissy Winter, a patient of Muscle People, had this to say about her experience: “My migraines were debilitating and they’d often come without warning. Sometimes once a week, but generally about once a month. I’d moved up from Dunedin where I’d managed them

with my Osteopath, yoga and Pilates. In Christchurch I was so reluctant to let anyone near my neck. I read the article and I must admit I wasn’t convinced and I went to the first appointment with a page of all the concerns I had. The first time I met Laurie I remember walking out and feeling more in control. After about four treatments with Laurie and perfecting the technique she taught me I truly began to reap the benefits. Now I’m fantastic. If I feel a migraine coming on I now have the control to manage it myself, even stopping them from taking over, without needing someone to drive me in to the osteopath or the hospital for an injection to relieve the pain. With the technique Laurie taught me I’m armed and dangerous!” Laurie, Clare and Naomi were trained in Australia in the award winning and ground breaking Watson Approach to dealing with headaches and migraines. This proven method examines and treats the movements of the first three segments of the neck, which when sensitised cause headaches and migraines. “In our clinics we see people from as far away as Invercargill who come to us specially to seek treatment” says Laurie Moore, Director of Muscle People Physiotherapy. She says “The symposium in Australia we went to just recently reaffirmed the effectiveness of what we

True

do, and honed our skills even more.” Generally patients will come to our clinic four or five times in the first few weeks of treatment. We show them some very simple exercises to do at home. After the first few weeks, treatment sessions are guided by how the patient is feeling. “Often patients come to us at the end of a long journey having tried quite a few other treatments, and we are able to help them reduce or remove their pain.” Laurie says.
