Many favourites currently testing are showing that this is not the case. Always discuss with your Doctor that the products or exercise regimes and equipment that you propose to use are suitable for you. I am sad to report that evidence is mounting about false advertising with health categories and there have been some distressing outcomes from neglect. Always know your product and your own health condition before using off the shelf products. We must all take responsibility for our own actions in this regard.

WILDLIFE RESEARCH - URGENT MEASURES NEEDED
Formerly, as a Scientist, my career was with the Victorian Government's Department of Sustainability and Environment. There I was involved with Fisheries and Wildlife research, with Field trips and Aquarium control, and those interests are still important to me. We were pleased when the Aquarium was updated.
Releasing healthy fish into monitored streams, or checking frog populations was interesting work. Sharing time with professional colleagues, researching and working together towards clean water, pollution recognition, species survival, wellness, healing, and sustainability is extremely valuable, as our ecosystem and natural resources need constant vigilance. My Planet Wise page has many considerations to address and my partner Colin with special research in Technology, Electronics, Meteorology, Radar, Antarctica and Communication will be contributing insights there
This tiny Mountain Pygmy Possum is a local favourite as we work for his survival. Bees must survive too, as many areas have lost their Bee populations. What can we do about this?
I am also active in organisations caring for Animals' and Pets' Health, as their welfare is also a passion. See my Pets & Care page for latest news about this.

Many countries have developed their own massage styles, Denmark, Sweden, China, Japan, Indonesia and Thailand are among them. Pilates, Bowen, Alexander and Yoga Techniques are also famous, and these all contribute to the Remedial Massage Therapists' techniques for treatment.
SPORTS INJURY REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY
This is one modality of my work where I feel greatly appreciated by teams of players. I treat friendly Hockey teams of Veteran Ladies to bring healing, relief and fast return to the playing field during Australian and overseas International Championships. Some players ask for pre-match preparation and knee massage, as Hockey places high demands on knees and other joints. It's always a good idea to wear two pairs of socks for added support, and inner cleanliness of shoes. Have you tried this?
My Therapies page features these with many useful ideas and helpful health products. Wise Therapy choices for individual needs require research and I hope you will find these pages helpful. Keeping busy with brain and body activity, exercise and therapy is vital.
All therapies are gifts to health and wellness. From prenatal years to longevity Music Therapists are working miracles in the lives of people with mental and physical problems such as Autism and Immobility. Their work is discussed on this page.Music Therapy. I invite you to join me by supporting their efforts and spreading their news.
Music Therapists have high educational qualifications and skills in Music, Psychology and Teaching. Minds and bodies benefit greatly from their Education, Activity and Mobility sessions, individually and in groups. To premature babies in incubators who cannot be touched, people with physical impairment or Learning Disabilities, and those with memory loss through injury or age, they bring communication and confidence. Their treatment and research into AUTISM is yielding amazing results generously shared online. RHYTHM, an essential element of Music and Life, is used widely with Drum Groups. Musical, specially designed therapeutic instruments are proving valuable aids for treatment and enjoyment, exercise and co-ordination, while group interaction grows. Drum group sessions are enjoyed by many as social interaction and physical co-ordination aids. There are many choices and here are some of my favourites. Singalong at Christmas favourite is:Frozen

HEALTHY ENVIRONMENTS AT WORK AND AT HOME
Every part of your body needs care when long hours are spent in repetitive tasks. Spine, Hands and wrists suffer from overuse, and there are some excellent products shown which may help circulation and joints to balance their workload. Care must be taken with timing of activity and relief.
Consider carefully the value of posture aids to help your comfort and freedom from pain at work.
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH THERAPY EQUIPMENT, DISABILITY TRAINING AIDS, DISABILITY EDUCATION PRODUCTS.
Early intervention and skills development for children with specific learning difficulties are vital for physical and mental growth and self esteem, and Occupational Therapists are experts in this field. There are many products available for home practice and training sessions and sale prices exist. I research these for you.
Also, many health problems arise when your body is susceptible to damage from long hours of physical, visual or mental concentration, seated or standing in one position. Importantly, Eye level computer monitors, correct height for keyboards, desks and seating, book rests and music stands, (especially when shared) along with balanced, comfortable seating are paramount. Adjustable Aids and equipment products are a feature of my research. Online only prices can help you. It is false economy to purchase fixed height products which may be cheaper.
Healthy posture, best seating and lighting can eliminate problems such as swollen joints, muscular spasm, eye strain, and headaches.

The skiing season has closed now the kids have gone back for their last term for the year. Currently I am down in Hobart for the Victorian Women's Hockey Masters team, and have now reached the 7th day of a ten day tournament, with most teams at least making the semis against the other states of Australia. It is always a joyous times to catch up with girls, both statewide and also those who play in the Australian Masters teams who I also work with. The exciting part is, I received yet another reward, State Services Award, through the Hockey Australia, for outstanding services to Victoria. A proud moment!
We are now into September, and so have just experienced some heavy rainfalls across the state,this has really boosted our dams, enabling us to have full dams for summer. Good snow falls have given good cover for great skiing, the skiers have been happy, which I used to, many years ago! Too cold for me now. The days are now warming up bit by bit now, making it enjoyable to be out in the garden connecting with the earth.

Australia has just finished being able to watch the tennis at Wimbledon. Even if it did mean some late nights and little sleep. It is always an exciting time to watch the players get out there and achieve their best against the other players.

Michelle Payne, Melbourne Cup Winner Injured
LATEST UPDATE re Michelle. Michelle has been able to go back into riding racehorses again, sadly though she will not be riding last year's winning horse for the Melbourne Cup this year. At least Michelle is able to ride again, that's the main thing.
UPDATE: In late May, our 2015 Melbourne Cup Jockey winner, was seriously injured after a fall off a horse in a race in Mildura. Michelle required emergency surgery for abdomen injuries and she is now slowly recovering. Time will tell if Michelle will go back to racing.Good luck Michelle.
In the Hockey tournament I was involved in recently, The Australia Womens Masters team came away with 3 Gold medals and 2 Bronze medals. Playing in the finals is always an exciting time for the girls, and to watch them play and to be proud of representing Australia is such a great feeling. A lot of the women have played for so many years, having started from the 35s age group and we now have 60s age group playing these days. Watch the exciting video below,with the 45s team and the goal that won them GOLD against New Zealand, the most nerve-racking moment when it means winning or losing the most vital goal!
