Warm greetings for a happy and prosperous 2016 from Ruth in Melbourne Downunder, Australia and thank you for visiting my site. December festivities have ended quickly and dramatic weather conditions are affecting many parts of the world. How can we bring some calm and peaceful resolutions to the many conflicts, violence and stress which fill our media sources constantly? How can we help best where it is needed? May we start with a personal sense of well being and good health to enable sharing knowledge, strength and support of many types for those children, women and men afflicted by human and natural disasters. I enjoy sharing these health matters with you with faith and hope for wellness for all.This includes all creatures great and small on this planet.
I love my life in Melbourne, Old Melbourne is a graceful city which for the fifth year has been voted the world's most liveable city a proud reputation to hold. Home in the nearby hills is special too. Carolina US has devastating flooding rain, while Victoria here Downunder has early, large bushfires with loss of homes already. We are warned about a severe El Nino pattern producing more extreme heat following two days of it this week. With these weather conditions health matters arise and stress is a consequence. Good health and fitness for everyone can lead to self confidence and peace of mind. This is my message for you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

JAN 2016 DIARY - SOME GOOD NEWS
Currently in Melbourne we are hosting the Australian Open Tennis. We have players from all over the world come and play for the big prize, and to boost their rankings in the tennis world. One of our Australian players, Lleyton Hewitt has bowed out after 18 or so years of playing the tennis circuit. Injuries took their toll on him and he went out in the second round. Sad to see him go, he was a great player. Lleyton will continue on as the Davis Cup Captain so he will not be lost to the tennis world. Another famous player, Rafael Nadal lost his first round match sadly. We'll look forward to seeing him back next year. There is another week of playing to do til we see who will become the men's champion and women's champions for 2016. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE FROM BEEWISE THERAPIES. 2015 really did fly pass very quickly and we hope that all of you will have a happy and safe new year!
DIARY - SOME GOOD NEWS
MELBOURNE CUP BECOMES A LOVE STORY.
A legendary winner at the Melbourne Cup Race on Tuesday was the first woman jockey to win the trophy. Michelle Payne riding Prince of Penzance hugging her brother, strapper Steven, and the story of their father who raised ten children alone after his wife was killed in a car accident have brought tears to many spectators' eyes. This is a heartwarming dimension to the top level of professional racing. Overcoming discrimination and chauvinism in the racing world has been difficult, but her professional standing is now world wide. However it was the family love so evident which melted our hearts. Steven is Michelle's Down's Syndrome brother, and their bond, with Steven's great self confidence, trust and pride with his sister and the Prince which made this family stand tall in the world of humanity, not just as horse race winners. So well done Michelle, Steven and those who brought you to us. Congratulations to a wonderful father too.
HOCKEY - AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL WOMENS MASTERS TOURNAMENT
I spent two weeks in Brisbane early in October as Massage Therapist with the Victorian Womens Masters Team. The National Tournament brings State teams together to compete for the Championship Trophy. The National Committee granted awards as recognition of service over the years and I was thrilled to receive two awards for service. The first for service to the Australian teams since 2007, and the second for over ten years commitment to the Victorian State Team. I am delighted to be admitted as a member to the Green and Gold Club. Another family member, Ann Lennie also received her award for over twenty years of service to Masters' Hockey. We had a great time in Brisbane, feeling chuffed together.2015 QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY HONOURS INVESTITURE.
