A day at the yacht club

Last Saturday, we had perfect weather to promote men’s health at the Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron in beautiful bayside Melbourne.

Tim Wilson, Federal MP for Goldstein, turned up to show his support and pick up his free men’s health information pack.

Grateful thanks to Andrology Australia, Foundation 49, PCFA and DVA for supplying the valuable literature in each man’s showbag.  If you missed out on a bag, you can drop in to Shine Health Wellbeing Centre, 35 Bluff Road, Black Rock to grab your copy.

Thanks to Ross Popplewell, Commodore of the BMYS, who instigated the Big Aussie BBQ at the Squadron.  Thanks also to Vern, Tony and Paul from Bayside Kingston Prostate Cancer Support Group for turning up and handing out the showbags.

I’m already looking forward to next year’s event at the Squadron.

International Men’s Health Week 2016

Machine Man - AMSA - Spanner in the Works

When was your last service?

Did you know that this coming week (13th June to 19th June) is International Men’s Health Week?

Did you know that there’s even an organisation that runs the whole shebang in Australia?  Yep, it’s called Men’s Health Week – catchy, eh?  And how do you like Machine Man below?  He comes to you courtesy of the Australian Men’s Shed Association and features on their Men’s Health Tool Box booklet.  Pretty cool.

Your body is like a car – both require regular maintenance.

So, what better time to ask yourself:-

  • How am I travelling, physically, mentally and emotionally?
  • Is it time for my annual service with my GP?
  • Do I even have a regular GP?
  • When did I last have my chassis checked?  What about my shock absorbers or my oil pressure?  And don’t let me forget my fuel injector!

Who can you talk to about men’s health issues?

As you may know, I work at a multi-modality health centre in Black Rock, Victoria – Shine Health Wellbeing Centre.  I provide counselling, nutritional advice, massage, Reiki, and craniosacral release.  My special interest is men’s health and wellbeing.

For Men’s Health Week at Shine Health, we are giving away free men’s health information packs from this coming Tuesday (14th June 2016).

The first 20 packs will include a $20 voucher for men to use at the Centre.

The pack will also contain a health appraisal questionnaire that you can fill in to give you some idea of how you’re travelling.  Once you’ve collected your info pack and completed your self-assessment, make an appointment to see me (Alan) or Marta, our Naturopath, to discuss the results.

So, if you’re able to come in to the centre, grab your free info pack and get your engine in top gear.  Or give us a call on 03 9589 4549 to make an appointment.

Shine Health Wellbeing Centre is located at 35 Bluff Road, Black Rock (across the road from Cafeteria, where you can get the best coffee ever).

New health centre opening

After one of the longest sabbaticals in living memory, I’m returning to practice and joining Marta and the team at Shine Health Wellbeing Centre in Black Rock.

Shine is a multi-disciplinary health centre and you can visit their Facebook page for more information.  Even better, if you are in the area next Saturday (12th December 2015), you can visit the new premises and meet us, sample some mini treatments and say hello.
