Positive Empowerment For You

In 2004, Author Dan Buettner gathered a group
of anthropologists, demographers, epidemiologists
and other researchers to travel around the world
to study communities with surprisingly high
percentages of centenarians (people living over 100
years of age).

As this group of experts identified the longest living
cultures, they drew concentric circles (in blue marker)
on a map, ultimately known as Blue Zones. It was a
concerted effort, and a year later, Buettner wrote a
book titled Blue Zones where he describes the every-
day lives of the 5 longest living people groups in
the world.
• Sardinia, Italy
• Loma Linda, CA
• Ikaria, Greece
• Okinawa, Japan
• Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

Surprisingly, many of these cultures consume a
much higher carb diet than the Western world,
confirming once again that despite all the bad
press, carbs don’t necessarily make you fat.

Of course, there are many other lifestyle factors at
play besides carbohydrate intake if you want to live
to be 100.

When all was said and done, there were 9 things
EACH culture in the “blue zones” had in common.
• Large diversity of plant based diet.
• No processed foods
• Strong belief in God (with a strong sense of purpose)
• Social connectivity with family and friends
• Plenty of walking
• Practice forgiveness daily
• Little stress (which is manage well)
• Sleep 8 hours nightly
• No smoking


HiDr Graeme Deep Tissue Massager


Now it's finally much easier for practitioners to help their patients who have extensive muscular and other soft tissue problems.

Have you ever had a really deep massage? They are different from your typical massage, and if done correctly are a huge help in dealing with most problems involving muscular pain and stiffness, giving people great relief. Many practitioners would love to have their patients get more of this type of treatment, even having it done on a regular basis. However, there are several issues that stop this:

It's hard work for practitioners, often causing long term damage to their fingers and thumbs
It takes time and costs money
It hurts like hell

What we've done is build massagers, not like your typical massagers that work superficially, but ones specifically capable of penetrating deeply to where the worst problems are, without hurting like hell and without the hard work and long term damage for practitioners. More importantly they are extremely easy to use and economical, meaning that as well as practitioners using them patients can do quality deep massage at home under advice.

How does that work in practice? In our own clinic massage is only part of what we do, and a lot of people need far more massage than they have the time or funds to get professionally. We use the massagers ourself, but are quite happy for patients to take care of a lot of the mundane repetative work themselves under our advice. Simply, they buy a massager which doesn't cost much more than a single visit to a masseur, get some good advice on what they need, then have unlimited free quality deep massages while sitting in their favourite lounge chair.
Before, those patients never got all the massage they needed so their problems would persist and their symptoms lingered. Now it is much easier and we get far better results.
