Monday Myths - "Scans will show me the cause of my back pain"
Significant research has shown high incidence of structural changes or degeneration in subjects with no history of back pain. Degeneration is normal - it's what happens as we age!
Research indicates that scanning backs without good reason can actually prolong pain and increase treatment costs!
We treat people not scans. We help people change the things that can change. We focus on function, education, understanding and ensuring the people under our care are actively involved in their own healthy future.

Don't let your meal prep be boring! Throw in your favourites and don't be afraid to add flavour. 😍 Enjoying your meals (even if they have a few extra calories), if much more sustainable than cutting out things you love.
Change your mindset ton thinking you CAN do something and you will achieve it. Fact. There is no excuse for telling yourself you can't do something. We understand some days are difficult than others, sometimes life gets in the way and you feel like you can't but if you truly believe in yourself, you will conquer all.
Lash mites or Demodex cause no problems when kept under control. Make sure you are following preventative measures such as cleansing your face and eyelashes twice daily with non-soap cleanser & non oil-based cleansers and greasy makeup. I stock Lash Foam Aftercare and comes with a free cleansing brush. You only need to use about a 5c piece to gently groom through your lashes and extensions. This foam dramatically extends lash retention, prevent germs, cleans & helps nurture lashes. This cleanser is perfect to those who wear eyemakeup on a regular basis & unable to properly clean eyelash extensions. Don’t forget to buy this on your lash appointment. Remember, clean lashes are happy lashes 🤗🤗🤗 #aftercare#eyelashextensionscleanser#eyelashcleanser#bllashes#eyelashes#lashes#eyelashextensions#northlakes#northlakesqld#lashartistrybyjeuels
Short-term thinking will only result in disappointment, results don't happen overnight, but they do happen. Trust the process. If you've ever felt like you can't handle the tough parts of the process, reach out! Family support will get you through everything. 💚🙏
Dedication comes from finding your why. Why do you want to achieve results? We've all been there, where we feel like it's too cold to get out of bed (even though it's Spring and should be warm by now!), when one cheat meal after another happens and we fall back into old habits. We can change this pattern together, let's support eachother! 💚🙏
Did you know we offer manual lymphatic drainage?
Our Remedial Massage Therapist, Pam O’Connor, has recently completed her training in manual lymphatic drainage (Vodder method) and is now a lymphoedema practitioner.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a specialised massage technique that works on the lymphatic system by promoting the flow of lymph fluid throughout the body. It is a gentle, very relaxing yet effective form of massage that may help to treat a wide range of conditions. It's an ideal way to destress and boost a struggling immune system.
Pam’s prime focus for clients diagnosed with lymphoedema is a holistic approach based on education and self-management. She is passionate about growing public awareness of lymphoedema and the importance of early intervention.
As a cancer survivor who developed lymphoedema herself, Pam believes her own experience will help others to understand and manage their health conditions, so they can live life to the fullest.
Talk to us today about how Pam can help you. Call us on 07 3188 9308. #manuallymphaticdrainage#northlakesqld#remedialmassage

Monday Myths - "You should stretch before exercise..." Stretching is an area of great debate amongst fitness and health professionals and every athlete or performer has their own opinion based on their experience. "Old school' thinking has people static stretching before exercise with the perceived aim of reducing injury - BUT - scientific research from all over the globe now tells that that not only does stretching NOT prevent injury but may also reduce the level of performance! In short, before sport, dance, a work out etc a dynamic warm up with some sports specific drills will better serve you.
Stretching after exercise generally feels good but even now there is debate over whether it helps to reduce soreness and minimise injury!
If you want to read some science on sports injury reduction check out our Facebook page for an article link - thanks to Physio colleague Mick Hughes in Melbourne. #northlakesqld#mondaymythbusters#stretchingmyths
