The South Yarra Spine and Sports Medicine ‘Health and Wellness Seminar’ took place at the clinic last Thursday evening, and was a wonderful evening full of informative sessions and active participation by our attendees.
The evening began with our sponsors, Chobani and Isowhey, providing some great snacks for our attendees to munch on while they explored the clinic (most eyes geared towards where our delightful naturopath Rachel was setting up her cooking demonstration…!)
When the evening kicked off, there were two rotations for the groups to move through, both geared towards assisting individuals achieve optimal health and wellbeing in their everyday lives. The first presentation involved four of our key practitioners in the clinic presenting on spine health, including posture assessing, exercise goal-setting plans and tips and tricks to maintain spine health throughout your life. With over 80% of the population experiencing back pain at some point in their lives, it was no doubt of enormous benefit to the participants to be able to soak up some knowledge on how they can best avoid being part of that statistic.
The second presentation that the attendees experienced was our naturopath Rachel, who delighted and impressed with her knowledge of local produce, the best place to buy your fish and meat, and whipped up a delicious Japanese-inspired salmon, alongside a roasted cauliflower and pomegranate salad (recipe to come!)
As always, our evening would not have been possible without the practitioners of SYSSM that assisted, and our wonderful sponsors. But most importantly, it would not have been possible without our attendees, who asked inquisitive questions and brought the whole night to another level.
Stay tuned for the next SYSSM event! It’s bound to be just as amazing as Thursday evening.
