Our feet are often taken for granted, but when you think about it they are our main form of transport!
They are the foundation of our body and play a crucial role in our stability, particularly the pelvis and the spine. Biomechanical dysfunctions of the feet can lead to issues ranging from heel pain through to hip and spinal problems.
‘Pronation’ is the part of walking and running that allows your body to absorb the shock of contact with the ground. As your foot hits the ground, it locks slightly to absorb shock and allow your foot to stabilise itself to propel forward for the next step. However, sometimes your foot rolls too far inward, known as overpronation, causing lower body pain in areas such as your legs, knees, hips and even your spine.
Magnesium plays several important roles in the health of your body and brain:
Magnesium participates in bone formation and bone health.
Together with calcium, magnesium is important for maintaining bone health and preventing osteoporosis.
Prevention and treatment of Diabetes.
For its properties it improves Heart health.
A daily intake of Magnesium reduces migraine headaches.
For its anti-inflammatory properties, it decreases premenstrual syndrome discomfort.
Relieves anxiety and it reduces chances of depression.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. In fact, every cell in our body contains it and needs it to function.
However, you may not be getting enough of it, even if you eat a healthy diet. Read the article to find out if your body is asking you for Magnesium.
For some readers ‘The Physiospect’ may sound like a great sci-fi movie. However, in actual fact it’s a state-of-the-art diagnostic device which was originally developed by Russian scientists whose focus was to create a type of “cellular communicator” able to read the human body – independently of another person’s subjectivity.
The Physiospect equipment is quite unique and has no similarity in the world. It is based on the spectral analysis of vortex magnetic fields of biological organisms. It determines the frequency pattern of each cell tissue and organ in the body, i.e. similar to the way in which a radio tunes into a particular frequency. The device recognises that each organ “tunes” to a specific frequency and can determine when the organ is functioning harmonically, or is slightly out of tune, or not functioning optimally. The healthier the area being examined, the more stable its frequency pattern will be.
What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care during pregnancy?
Chiropractic therapy is a non-invasive technique to realign joints of the body to reduce spinal nerve stress and optimise health and wellbeing. In other words, a “healthy spine = healthy nervous system = healthy body working at its full potential.”
The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system. During pregnancy, the mother experiences physiological and hormonal changes as it prepares for the developing baby. Therefore, caring for the spine grows in importance during pregnancy, particularly the pelvis and spine.
During pregnancy, when your baby grows and becomes heavier, the centre of gravity shifts and your posture changes. As your abdomen protrudes the curve in your back increases, along with pelvic alignment changes.
Scoliosis means “curvature of the spine”. It is commonly first noticed in childhood or adolescence, and the curve often progresses rapidly as the child grows. If left untreated it can lead to severe spinal deformity, cronic pain and early spinal degeneration. Early detection and treatment leads to better long term results. As a community service we
What is NET – Neuro Emotional Technique
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a holistic mind-body treatment developed by Dr Scott Walker DC. used to locate and remove neurological imbalances linked to unresolved emotions such as anger, grief and fear. When our response system is overwhelmed, and our body remains tense and contracted this tension gets trapped in our body. When untreated these imbalances affect our physical and mental wellbeing and can be the catalyst for disease.
How does NET work?
NET uses a method of locating and eliminating neurological imbalances related to the physical effect of unresolved trauma. The goal is to correct the neuro emotional complex (NEC) – i.e. the imprinted emotional data affecting physiological function. This stress reduction technique is non-invasive and doesn’t require counselling or psychanalysis.
The head is the most common area of pain in the body, causing throbbing, squeezing, unrelenting or intermittent pain in the head, face or neck area.
In the western world, the standard model for treating headaches is often a symptomatic ‘band-aid’ approach including painkillers and anti-inflammatories. These can certainly be beneficial, however, for long-term relief and wellness it’s vitally important to locate the root cause, and this is what our dedicated team at Empowering Wellness are passionate about.
Like any pain in the body, a headache is a symptom that something isn’t right. There are two main categories:
a) Primary Headaches – tension-type headaches and migraines that occur mainly as symptoms of stress, eye strain, poor posture, dehydration, hangover, lack of sleep, etc.
b) Secondary Headaches – are caused by some underlying health condition such as the flu, sinusitis, allergies; or another symptom caused by medication effects, illness, head injury, trauma or disease.
Almost all of us recognise the holistic health benefits of massage that many people experience including:
