Myofascial Release

3 times per fortnight I go to the Andrea Plumb Clinic in Silkstone. Andrea works on my muscles doing myofascial release therapy, it is hard to describe, it is sort of like she gives me little chinese burns all over. Everyones muscles are coated with a muscular stocking (fascia) that helps to keep all our muscles connected and gives us support. It can also be so strong and pull so tight it is capable of breaking bones!  Because of the trouble I have using my muscles my fascia is tight and she works to loosen it. It does hurt to start with! Depending on which part of me Andrea works on the pain level is different. For example when I had my first visit everywhere hurt. Now in some places it doesn't hurt so much. She aways works on my right arm to help make it easier to move and my legs to help stop them from crossing over like scissors when I kick. I had a session last night and she worked on my neck- gee that hurt! It is a new spot for me! And then we worked on my right arm. It felt so good I nearly went to sleep! So the more I go and the more places I have worked on the less pain I will be in and the more freely I will be able to move. Andrea calls herself a "problem solver" she likes challenges... and I can give her plenty of those! You can see more info about Andrea and her different therapies on her website - She is great!

Blaise day Sausage Sizzle at Officeworks

Officeworks stores around Queensland are doing a special sausage sizzle just for me on Saturday 26th June. I am looking for some back up volunteers that wouldn't mind cooking and selling Sausages on this day. We are in the process of organising this with Rotary but just incase they can't come I am asking any one who is interested to put their name down to help.

The stores so far are - Ipswich, Toowoomba, Oxley, Lismore, Loganholme, Mt Gravatt, Windsor, Virginia, Aspley, Rockhampton, Capalaba and Hervey Bay- more might still join in.

The very nice staff at Hervey Bay have volunteered their time to run the sausage sizzle on our behalf.

If you are free on this day and would like to help out, please let me know. We need about 3 people per stall.
The selling times will be between 10am - 2 or 3pm

I am a very clever boy...

I just need to work out that right arm of mine and I will be set...

I have been Sleeping...

The last two nights I have discovered this wonderful thing.... It is called sleep!
I'm sure Mum had forgotten how great it is to have more than 3 hours in a row at night! I have recently discovered how wonderful it is. My Trick? I went to a Chiropractor.
It turns out that I had a short right leg which he popped back into place and he also adjusted my spine because it was rotated to my left side. I guess that not being able to move too well has made me a bit crooked. I hope that being able to sleep at night will happen all the time from now on- How great would that be? Atleast now I think I know what my problem might be if I have trouble again.... And I know where I will go!
