Wendy Schulze is trained in the assessment and treatment of Vertigo (dizziness). It can be caused by a number of factors and this is why you will need a thorough assessment.
The Causes of Vertigo
Because vertigo has many causes a thorough assessment is required before treatment is performed.
The treatment is dependent upon the assessment and cause.
It can include positioning exercises, treatment to the neck and shoulder blade area of the spine. Home exercises and information about foods and positions that trigger the vertigo.
If your vertigo is caused by a medical condition Wendy will refer you to a Doctor for further investigation.
If you suffer from vertigo book an assessment with Wendy so that you can understand what it is that is triggering your dizziness.

Most people spend a great deal of time sitting so they get stiff in their spine.
This is the cause of many spinal injuries and pains.
Here are some exercises to improve your posture.
We all get angry at times — this is normal and human.
Anger occurs when we have a problem in our lives, it focuses our energy to get things shifting and changing.
Anger literally is a transformational energy.
We can have positive transformation when we focus our anger on a problem.
We can have negative transformation when we focus our anger on a person — we can even lose that relationship.
In a nut shell anger focused on a problem is healthy however, anger focused on a person is toxic.
It is much more efficient and effective to be angry at a problem.
Some people are feeling stressed by this most unusual time in the world so I spent this Sunday making you all a meditation to relax your body and mind.
I trust you will enjoy them.
Laughter is also a great way to improve your stress levels, the Mayo Clinic has an excellent article on this.
Wendy’s Four Steps for Anger
Step 1. Acknowledge that there is a problem and they are important to you.
Step 2. Explain that you will not discuss the issue until you are both calm
Step 3. Leave
Step 4. When you are both calm come back and discuss the problem
Control dramas are negative emotions that people use to control each other.
The six control dramas are :
It is normal to feel these feelings at times however, we can either use them in a healthy or a controlling way.
Each of these emotions have a positive or negative affect on your relationships.
Anger and criticism are strong, focused emotions that create either negative or positive transformation.
They are both negative when focused on a person and positive when focused on a problem.
Withdrawal is positive if a person takes time out to get clear about a problem.
However, it is negative when no action or discussion is taken after taking time out.
Victim-hood is negative if a person complains about an unfairness in life without actively changing their behavior.
It is positive when a person faces an unfair situation feels the feelings of that come up (for example; feeling sad and crying.) and then engages in positive solution based change.
Denial is negative if you deny someone else's thoughts, beliefs and feelings.
It can be positive when someone is overwhelmed and they will not engage in thinking about a problem while they are feeling that way.
Charm is positive if it is kindness in action and negative when used to manipulate someone to do something that is not best for them.
Once a person learns to use these emotions positively they will find it easy to say “no” to others who are trying to control them, plus they will stay calm and adult when others being unkind.
Relationships will improve because difficult issues will be resolved in a way that grows trust.
Imagine how wonderful it would feel to no longer be a target for bullies.
In the future I will blog about how to handle yourself and others when feeling these strong feelings.
Pain is a natural and good part of your bodies system.
Children who are born without the ability to feel pain die quickly for they simply injure their bodies until they eventually die.
Leprosy is another example of a pain free “problem”, because people with Leprosy can’t feel their fingers and toes they injure them until they have to be amputated or they fall off.
The Pain of Injury
Pain is telling you that you are injuring your body it has an important role in your life.
When you are injured your cells break open and the inside contents of the cells spill out between the tissues. The body then sends a message to the brain and you feel pain. When these cell chemicals are flushed away by the body you get better and no longer feel pain. If you keep injuring the cells then you keep getting pain. This type of pain is not good its role is to make you stop doing what ever you are doing!
Acute pain is a perfectly normal and natural response that keeps you alive.
Chronic pain is different, for it involves something called memory pain.
Let me explain memory pain as opposed to the pain of damaging your body’s tissues.
When I was about twelve years old I remember making a new exotic recipe called stuffed tomatoes. The tomatoes were stuffed with breadcrumbs, onions and some herbs and spices. After some time cooking in our lovely farm wood stove I ate them. The reaction I had can only be described as a severe food poisoning.
I remember pain of such intensity that I could only lay on the cold vinyl floor and roll around and cry with the agony. I became super sensitive to any stimulation at all. The light had to be turned off for it was painfully blinding. Sound became amplified and I couldn’t hear what people were saying because it was too loud. My parents couldn’t move me to the bedroom for I couldn’t stand their touch. Eventually I fell asleep and my parents must have put me to bed where I slept it off and surprisingly woke up perfectly OK the next morning.
When I was feeling ill all I could smell on my breath was onions, and the smell of onions became strongly associated with this acute food poisoning
For about 25 years after if I even smelled onion I would immediately feel ill. I could eat cooked onions without a reaction because they don’t smell so obviously I was not allergic to them. Yet the smell of slightly cooked onion made me bilious, I simply couldn’t get it in my mouth without gagging and feeling super sensitive to everything.
This is memory pain, where severe pain is linked with a smell, sound, sight or situation.
This is your body/minds way of protecting you from severe illness or pain.
Many people with back pain have linked memory pain to sitting or driving and yet their back maybe actually healed! It is just that they have associated the activity to pain that whenever they sit or drive their brain plays back the memory of pain.
Many people have memory pain associated with a particular alcoholic drink that they once overindulged in!
Memory pain is very powerful and I guess humans were designed to have memory pain to prevent us from continually doing something that was bad for us.
If you have chronic pain you will be guaranteed to have some element of memory pain.
You can clear your memory pain by imagining doing painful things without any pain. Once you can do this easily then you can know that your memory pain has been cleared.
