GO NATIVE – Plant trees where they are naturally suited to the soil and environment.

Sunset through the Trees

= Drink plenty of water. Don’t hinder those around you (None of us want stunted growth).


KEEP the use of chemicals MINIMAL.  And use them correctly.

USE a GUARD or stake etc when necessary.

WORK WITH THE SEASONS – Plant during the planting season (November-March).

What IS a ‘Joint’?

  We talk about joints all the time.  And I’m probably right in thinking you’re now picturing a joint that represents the most common one find in your body – the Synovial Joint.  But did you know there are other types too?  Each with their own unique qualities.  But First…   What IS a ‘Joint’?… Continue Reading

      Musculoskeletal isn’t the easiest word to say, is it?  (Try mus-kyo-lo-skel-e-tal.)  ?

Can I Adjust Myself?

Can I Adjust Myself?

  Many people think they can ‘adjust’ themselves.  But unfortunately, even a qualified chiropractor finds that very hard to do (believe me, I know!).
