Is Self Improvement real?

With so many self help gurus around today it seems like every second person is a business or life coach with everything you need to be rich, happy and successful. Mostly it’s an unregulated industry so it can be hard to figure out who to take notice of. So can you really improve yourself? I am into self improvement and...

Why I like media streaming players

When Netflix arrived it was like all my viewing dreams had come true. In fact with all the streaming services available I don’t watch free to air anymore. So many times I would watch a series only to find an episode was missing or moved and the season was ruined. All the TV I watch now comes through the internet....

Relaxation massage – art based on science

Better Living With Hypnosis

Tom Bowen the man

A lot is written about Mr Tom Bowen, a remarkable massage therapist who practiced in Geelong. It is 30 years since Tom Bowen died and like many things it is the legend that continues and sometimes the person is forgotten.
