    A Dolphin Visit for The Bold and Beautiful Swim Squad at Manly.   Over the last couple of days, the Bold and Beautiful Squad that I swim with has been blessed with a little visitor.  Our new friend appears to be a young female bottle nose dolphin who played with the squad on their swim from Manly to Shelly Beach and back. I have been fortunate to swim with wild dolphins before, whilst at a retreat in the Bahamas in 2013.  One of my chiropractic teachers from the U.S.A, Lou Corleto invited me along to join his patients in a Wildquest retreat on the island of Bimini.  We spent our days practicing yoga, participating in exercises and, of course, spent every afternoon on a 41 ft catamaran swimming with wild dolphins.   What can Manly learn from swimming with Dolphins?   I learned many things on the retreat. About human behaviour, healing, me and about dolphins.  The key point that I came home with was that our...

From Back Pain to True Health, with Manly’s Gentle Chiropractor ©

  Are you suffering back pain, headaches, chronic discomfort?   Manly now has access to a new gentle process that will help you remove your pain and symptoms by addressing the cause.

Whether your pain is due to a recent incident or the result of being distracted from the most important thing in life (your health), it’s time to reconnect...

   Making it Easy for Manly to Enjoy More Health I believe in health made easy.  You may remember my previous blog about sitting being more toxic than cigarettes.  This has become quite a talking point since I first posted that article, people are now aware that too much sitting is unhealthy – we simply didn’t evolve to sit on chairs for long periods of time. Did you know research says we sit for an average of 9.3 hours per day?  This sounds like an exaggeration but when you combine commuting, desk work, eating and then relaxing in front of a TV it quickly adds up.  That’s more time than most people spend sleeping and, for a species who evolved in the absence of chairs, it’s far too much. Maybe it’s the digital age that’s to blame, or TV, or the iphone trend…  Whatever, forget blame.  Let’s find a solution.  One that combines our love for Manly’s beautiful beach-side environment with an understanding of how to create health, and...
