Greetings from Ruth in Melbourne Downunder, Australia and thank you for visiting my site. September has ended so quickly, and our clocks will move forward for Daylight Saving Time on Sunday 4th October at 2am. As Autumn/Fall begins in the Northern Countries, I wonder when your clocks will fall back. Change of seasons and weather temperatures bring many health challenges and my pages will reflect this as we leave Equinox behind for 2015.

My work as a practising Remedial Massage Therapist is very fulfilling as I aim for good health and quality of life for all.

I believe that Health, Diet, Activities, Massage, and Therapies, including my Massage treatments can make a difference for safe, enjoyable living.Massage Plus is the page featuring modalities and products.

REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY FOR SPORTS INJURIES.
A lifetime involvement with Sport, Tennis, Netball and Hockey has convinced me that MASSAGE plays an important role in athletic health, whether related to surgery, preparation or routine fitness.
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.
This International Express report concerned me 1 April, 2015, p16. "Extinction fear for Europe's bees. Almost 1 in 10 of Europe's bee species is facing extinction, conservation experts have warned. The first assessment of the continent's 1,965 species also found that a quarter of bumblebees were at risk. Experts said bees were being hit by intensive agriculture, climate change, pesticides, increasing urban development and wildfires. However more data and funding are needed to assess the full impact, said the International Union for Conservation of Nature."
Daily reports encourage the growth of bee friendly plants and flowers. These sleepy little bee friends are enjoying a pleasant flower nap. Farmers are growing plants to attract less commercial species for future needs. Bee Swarms reported in London are in evidence as calls for bee friendly gardens have been heeded. Wise Education through these reports is welcome. There is much to learn and encourage. Here are some very useful DVDs and Books for starting points

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 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.
Explore the Music Therapy page from this link, or from the Sidebar Page List.
Music Therapists have special 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. Antoinette Morrison of Back Mountain Therapies regularly shares her strategies with visitors to her site, offering encouragement for AUTISM families with many helpful strategies and results. We congratulate Antoinette on her new academic appointment which is richly deserved. . Here is her link

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 how some of these posture aids may help your health and comfort 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.
