Can you HELP me?

By Joshua Iaquinto 

Physiotherapy is great for injuries... but it's not always needed.

I just came back from BALI last month where I had 14 massages in 12 days.
I recognise how much of a hypocrite I am. 
I look after everyone else but don't look after myself. 

14 treatments in 12 days - I didn't realise how much I really needed relief too. 

If anyone has ever received an awesome treatment from me and I complain about how I wish someone would do that for me and my body... well I still want that, I just didn't recognise how much I need it now.

Can you help me,  find or create the best massage in Gladstone, 

I want to take care of myself and I want to take care you.

Do I have to drink eight glasses of water per day?

health water Jul 16, 2018

- Alexandra Hansen of The Conversation Asked five experts

Everyone knows humans need water and we can’t survive without it. We’ve all heard we should be aiming for eight glasses, or two litres of water per day.
This target seems pretty steep when you think about how much water that actually is, and don’t we also get some water from the food we eat?
We asked five medical and sports science experts if we really need to drink eight glasses of water per day.

All five experts said no

Here are their detailed responses:
Karen Dwyer 
Deputy Head, School of Medicine
Deakin University

No. You only need to drink to thirst. The best gauge of your hydration level is the colour of your urine. You should aim for light yellow in colour; if very dark then you're dehydrated and need more water; if clear (like water) then you don’t need so much water. Excessive water intake can be dangerous, particularly in those with heart conditions. The...

Back Pain

Affecting four out of five people at some time in their lives, back pain (often referred to as Lumbago) is the most common complaint treated by orthopedic physical therapists. In most cases, back pain is caused by over-straining the structural components in the back. Most cases, although painful, are not serious if seen to promptly and usually respond very well to physical therapy treatment.


This refers to irritation of the sciatic nerve that supplies nerve conduction to the leg. However it is often used to describe any pain in the leg, whatever the cause, whether it is related to circulation, pain referred from a back injury, trauma or nerve irritation.

9 Characteristics of Self-Actualized People

Uncategorized Jul 02, 2018
By Kendra Cherry 
In psychology, self-actualization is achieved when you're able to reach your full potential. Being truly self-actualized is considered the exception rather than the rule since most people are working to meet more pressing needs. 

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

Psychologist Abraham Maslow outlines what is known as a hierarchy of needs, representing all the various needs that motivate human behavior. The hierarchy is often displayed as a pyramid, with the lowest levels representing basic needs and more complex needs located at the top of the pyramid.

At the peak of this hierarchy is self-actualization. The hierarchy suggests that when the other needs at the base of the pyramid have been met, you can then focus your attention on this pinnacle need of self-actualization.


9 Characteristics of 
Self-Actualized People

Here are some of the key characteristics of self-actualized people as described by Maslow:
