Persistent, mild or severe aches & pains?
University Study Concludes, “Network Care
should be included among those practices
with established health benefits.”
If you want...
• Less physical pain, including headaches;
• Less tension or stiffness;
• Less moodiness and anxiety as well as
increased experience of relaxation;
• Improved response to stress, productivity and
overall quality of life;
Network care may also be an ideal way for you
to achieve those health goals. These are just a
few of the conclusions that investigators found
to have statistical and clinical significance.
The study had over 2800 people who received
this type of chiropractic treatment and was
conducted within the Department of Anatomy
& Neurobiology, College of Medicine, and
Department of Sociology, University of California
Irvine. In this study, 95% of respondents reported
their expectations had been met. More details
on this and other NSA research can be found by
Dr Jason Barritt began his study of network care
The objective of this method is to teach the body
how to make its own corrections. It is a type of
Neuroplastic treatment in which scientists report
“..... the synaptic strengths are adjusted, the
neural pathways are created, and consequently
the signal becomes less random.”
2 Dr Norman
Doidge explains the positive effects of other
Neuroplastic treatments he has investigated in
his book The Brain That Changes Itself, by saying
“[Scientists] showed that the
brain changes its very structure
with each different activity it
performed, perfecting its circuits
so it was better suited to the
task at hand.” The ‘task at hand’
with Dr Barritt’s work is to enhance
communication between the brain and
the body so that overall function and
performance can be optimised so that
healing can be enhanced.
Dr Barritt is giving a free demonstration and
presentation on Saturday, November 26th
11am at the Optimal Health Centre Braddon.

which wines can keep
you cool. Here they

Say my name: Soju Girl – named after ‘soju’, a type of Korean liquor.
A brainstorm: The concept is all about a sharing menu with modern
Food Inc: The restaurant serves dishes with Japanese ingredients, using
Thai and other South East Asian cooking techniques. The chef, Derek
Brown, describes the food as a fusion between the modern and the
traditional. All the food is served as tapas. “The idea was to get people to
enjoy the shared eating concept,” he said.
Best kept secret: With their retractable walls they can turn portions of
the restaurant into private dining rooms, lounges or a bistro. Their 15m-
long timber bar is every alcohol aficionado’s dream-come-true.
Drink up: Besides a variety of beers on tap and wines, the restaurant
serves its signature cocktail made with, yes, soju.

The summer sun has sent a heat
haze over Canberra, and what
better way to cool down and stir
the heart than that sexy little cocktail,
the Margarita. This firecracker of a
cocktail sashayed onto the drink scene
in the early 1940s, mysteriously making
an appearance from the sultry deserts of
Mexico. A buxom, full-flavoured Spanish
seductress, she’ll make you think you’ve
quenched your thirst while craving more.
Tequila, the golden heart of the
Margarita, is distilled from the flesh
of the blue agave plant, which grows
in the rich, sandy soils of Mexico. In
deep twilight night, the blue agave is
pollinated by bats, and from its leaves
the Margarita, a tequila daisy, is born.
The Margarita is the mistress of the
party people. Her origin story is as
uncertain as her perfect concoction,
with many a man claiming to mix her
up for love, or money, or love of money.
Prepared in a sexy, curved Margarita
glass, her rim doused in fresh lime and
a thin rime of salt, the rest is challenged
by bartenders everywhere. Some prefer
a tart mistress, with a part mix of
tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice
over ice - or, not. Whether cointreau,
triple sec, grand marnier, lemon instead
of lime, ice blended, ice shaken, no ice or
no liqueur – the Margarita is as varied as
one lover to the next. All that is certain
is the effect – if you’re looking for a good
time this summer, you’ll want this little
beauty along for the ride.
In the warm Canberra evening, we
recommend setting up the party at
newly-opened Honkytonks, in the city,
or Soju Girl on Northbourne, for a long
evening with our favourite lasting lover –
or maybe a few.
