This Week Diabetes Awareness Week 16 -- 22 November www.diabetesauckland.org.nz 3288111AA Perhaps you've won- dered what Chinese medicine is all about and whether this whole body approach to health ca n help you. If you are tired and lacking energy, can't sleep, have skin prob- lems, digestion prob- lems, or body aches and pains, or many other conditions then Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has something to offer. It uses a whole body ap- proach which can be more effective than a conventional ap- proach. The treatments will usually include Acu- puncture -- but if you are afraid of needles there are other treat- ments we can use such as Acupressure, Tuina (medical mas- sage), Medical Qigong, or Herbal Remedies. I'm Peter Caughey -- a qualified Doctor of TCM. I have been a practitioner for over 13 years. I qualified from the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and TCM. I also stud- ied in China. Over the past 13 years I have used tried and proven treatments that have helped thousands of people break free of whatever was making them unwell. It's ironic that I have now devoted my life to helping people get well -- my background prior to this was 16 years with the NZ army, 7 of those in the SAS. I loved the mental and physical disci- pline in the SAS. I be- came a weapons and explosives instruc- tor, and an advanced medic. I also learned Hand to Hand combat and ended up teach- ing many different ways to incapacitate an opponent. Now I do exactly the opposite. What led me to studying the TCM ap- proach to health was a neck injury I got from years of playing rugby. Conventional treatments didn't help -- and it wasn't until I tried acupuncture that I got the problem r e s olv edinju sto n e treatment. This made me intensely curious about why it worked so effec- tively, so I decided to study it. Right now I am es- tablishing my new lo- cation in Epsom and I'd like to offer you an initial treatment (worth $100) absolute- ly free. I'm doing this be- cause I want you to experience first hand the remarkable effec- tiveness of TCM. Come in and talk to me about any health concerns and I'll be able to show you how my approach to health and wellbeing can work for you.

Photo: JASON OXENHAM By SCOTT MORGAN Wet weather put a bit of a damp- ener on Len Brown's first Mayor in the Chair session in Aotea Square last week. But that didn't stop a steady stream of people turning up to talk with the Auckland Council's new leader. The hour-long meet-and-greet sessions were successfully devel- oped by Mr Brown during his time as Manukau mayor. Teacher Melanie Webber raised concerns about a big screen set to be erected in Aotea Square in time for next year's Rugby World Cup. It's important we have a quiet space in the city without distrac- tions.'' Mr Brown told the central city resident that Aotea Square will be just one of several locations where games are screened. We really want the Rugby World Cup to go off. The idea is to spread it around.'' The mayor also raised concerns about skateboarders damaging concrete stairs in the square, but it's not something Ms Webber is too worried about because it's a shared public space. She says the former Auckland City Council should have installed more protection on the stairs. Ms Webber says Mr Brown appeared to take her concerns on board. I was already aware he was approachable and decided to take my lunch break to come down and see him.'' Another member of the public, who gave his name as Ben, talked to Mr Brown about the possibility of students being pushed out of their flats during the world cup. We don't want you guys having to head off out of town,'' Mr Brown says. While Mr Brown predicted most visitors would stay in hotels, motels or with friends, he offered to meet with student union leaders if it became a problem. Mr Brown says the sessions are a great informal way for people to raise their concerns. More sessions will be held around the region in the coming weeks.
