Spring has Sprung! At the centre we are overjoyed that Spring has finally begun (though it certainly didn't feel like it in the beginning!). It's such a great time to begin again - by getting outside and (maybe) getting active, having a tidy up and shedding the winter coats!
What are you looking forward to? For us, it will be hearing all the Tui and Kaka chirping in the lovely native tress we have in the centre's garden!
We think we've got some neat stuff in this newsletter:
a bit of a deep dive into one of our newest members, Rhys and how Zero Balancing helped him with injury recovery and the suprising added benefit that lead him to become a practitioner.
Megan's sharing some great news - the iheart resilience programme for school age kids is really taking off locally. As a result she's changing her work times and increasing her offering to clients in the area.
Enjoy! Lily and Claire x

A case study for Zero Balancing Zero Balancing is a recent addition to the Ngaio Health team, though it is increasingly getting the attention it deserves.
As a non-diagnostic holistic treatment, it can be a little hard to understand so we have enlisted the help of Rhys to fill out a case study detailing how Zero Balancing helped him, both physically and mentally. (This is a great 5min read with a cuppa) Read more here:
How to Help: Stress Related Pain Most people think that stress related pain is held in the muscles of the back and neck. While that is partly true, what is not commonly known is that most tension is actually held deep in the bones.
The upper ribs between the shoulders are one classic site of this tension, with the pain often radiating along the rib under the scapula. When we are not able to release stress naturally we sometimes unconsciously grit our teeth, hunch our shoulders, or slouch in our chairs over our laptops and cell phones. This places stress into our structure which eventually results in chronic bone pain in the back, shoulders, neck, and jaw with tension headaches common. Energy is not able to flow freely through the bone, getting snagged up, causing a painful vibration.
Zero Balancing gently eases away the tension from bones allowing our own energy to circulate freely through our body. We remain comfortably clothed while acupressure and stretches (focused on bone) are applied in a remarkable head to foot therapy that re-balances our whole body. Not only can pain be gently relieved, the originating mental stress can also be released, leaving us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
