Become a Serial Seminar Attendee!

We believe that education is the key to long term health gains. Our community courses are the core education aspect of our service. They are designed to be educational and fun. Seminars give us time to teach you more about your body and how it works. These seminars back up what we teach in clinic so that you can learn more about your body ~ education which lasts you a lifetime. All of our talks are small, informative and personal. We are free to talk to afterwards to decide whether you need to book a consultation.

P.S. Health and wellbeing are our favourite subjects!

Each seminar is held at the Tannery and they run monthly from February to November covering all major aspects of the body. If you would like a seminar done at your workplace just give us a call.

Arthritis ~ How can natural products help me? @ The Tannery | Christchurch | Canterbury | New Zealand

Arthritis seems to be an inevitable aspect of aging. While this is true, there are some things we can do to prevent the deterioration from happening so quickly and so soon with targeted nutrients and anti-inflammatory’s. We take a look at the pathology of arthritis, the wear and tear forms and the inflammatory types that are on the increase. We look at diet and how this contributes to arthritic pain, and what types of exercise we should be focusing on. We also want to invite younger people to participate in this talk, particularly if you have had injuries, played sports or have signs of arthritis starting to show.

  • Learn about the types of arthritis
  • Learn the physiology of cartilage breakdown and repair
  • Learn about the correlation between diet and inflammation
  • Learn what types of foods can help to lower inflammation
  • Learn how to exercise to protect your joints not harm them
  • Learn how to treat inflammation with herbs so you don’t have to rely on drugs which are associated with unwanted side-effects

This class will help to educate and empower you to take control of your health and to take better care of yourself – saving you time and future suffering.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Come along and find out why this truism will always be – well, true!

Testimonials:

A lot of new thoughts on ‘old’ topics. Certainly not same ole same ole. The information was very clear and well presented both in the printed material and spoken…I liked the feedback and tips in the last session…A bit (or a lot) of thinking outside of the box was very refreshing…I especially enjoyed the ’empowerment of our choice’ type of topic at the end…I have never heard that presented in a weight loss programme before. To leave feeling empowered to take control (especially after setbacks) is an excellent topic. Well done you! – Lynette 13/09/2016
