Focus on your wellbeing
Helpful: The friendly team at Isabella
Plains Medical Centre.
Isabella Plains Medical Centre recently
passed its reaccreditation in terms of
quality and safety in health standards
with flying colours. Accreditation
provides an excellent opportunity for the
business to reflect on how it delivers its
care to the community.
Individuals, too, must reflect on their
own health from time to time. If possible
you should focus on a preventative
lifestyle -- one that avoids the many
preventable conditions that medical cen-
tres see all too often today.
Unfortunately, visits to the GP may only
occur when you are sick -- a time when
thinking about lifestyle changes may be
the last thing you want to do.
This is why you should take the time to
come in for a health check. The team at
Isabella Plains Medical Centre includes
dedicated and skilled nurses who work
with your GP to carry out preventative
health checks -- these can be done on
various groups of people including chil-
dren as part of their four-year-old vaccin-
ation visit, those at risk of diabetes and
chronic disease, those aged 45 to 49 and
over 75 years of age, indigenous mem-
bers of our community, returned defence
force personnel, as well as various other
groups. Please check with your doctor or
nurse for further details if you think you
may be eligible.
These visits are free and enable you to
make informed decisions about diet,
exercise and lifestyle changes that will
reap rewards in the future in terms of
your health outcomes. Call today to book
an appointment with the centre's friendly

and beauty from an early age.
She gained an interest

as she was able.

Ms Janse van Rensburg said.
"In 1989 I started my first

Regain your suppleness with tai chi
Beneficial: Hun yuan tai chi bringssuppleness of body and calmness of mind.
There's a famous Chinese say-
ing that the soft can overcome
the hard. This refers to water
being soft enough to adapt to
any container, and yet powerful
enough to move boulders and
wear away stone. The art of tai
chi uses the principle of water to
train the body and mind.
As we grow older, we gradu-
ally begin to lose our supple-
ness. Our joints become stiff and
brittle and our minds become
Many tai chi students have
started out with arthritis and
back problems. Through tai chi,
they have gradually regained
their former health and have
developed greater fitness and
Tai chi also promotes natural
deep breathing, mental calm-
ness and better circulation.
The large circular movements
of the hun yuan tai chi have a
calming effect on the nervous
system. This is very beneficial
for the skin, the body's largest
and fastest-growing organ. It
also enables you to experience
contentment, inner peace and a
feeling of well-being.
Most of all, tai chi is about
balance and harmony with our-
selves and with others. Content-
ment and serenity can only
come from within.
The Tai Chi Academy will be
offering obligation-free intro-
ductory lessons throughout
Canberra from October 11 to 16.
The Tai Chi Academy has a
free online magazine with more
information on the benefits of tai
