"Our spines are like the trunk of a tree. Without a trunk, the tree has no support, no strength and no conduit for the supply of nutrients (or in the case of the spine - nerve signals)" - Jax Pax, How Yoga Really Works

To celebrate ATMS Natural Medicine Week and Spinal Health Week, we are bringing together some of the best to share their wisdom, across a range of complementary health therapies, on spinal health. 

You will learn different approaches to incorporate into your holistic health routine to manage your back concerns, and how they may work alongside each other to provide personalised support.

Join us for an evening of helpful tips to support your spinal health, improve posture and prevent future health problems. We've got your back.

This is a perfect opportunity to gain an understanding of how different therapies that may assist you. Giving you insights on what is available and even consider trying a few yourself with our experienced practitioners.
