LEFT OF CENTRE: Turn your Life Right Around

A simple and manageable self-help programme suitable for all ages.

Do you feel frustrated because your back and neck pain never quite settles down, or relief after treatment is only temporary?

Does it feel as though you have tried everything but nothing seems to work and you have been told to just ‘live with it’?

Are you starting to despair because you are developing other areas of symptoms, like neck, shoulder and elbow pain, in addition to your ongoing back pain?

Based on the author’s personal experience of recurrent back and neck pain and the knowledge gleaned over a 40 year physiotherapy career, this book may well be what you have been searching for. Thinking outside the box, Valentyna has developed a simple and manageable self-help programme, based on 3 basic exercises and modification of our every day habits. Read on…

About the Author

Valentyna always planned to undertake a medical career. However, after learning that physiotherapists work more closely with patients during their rehabilitation, she commenced studies in physiotherapy at the South Australian Institute of Technology, graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy in 1981. Further study at the University of South Australia led to a Master of Applied Science in Physiotherapy (Orthopaedics) in 1991. During this time, Valentyna was strongly influenced by the teachings of David S Butler (theory and research on adverse mechanical tension of the nervous system) and Mark Jones (teachings on clinical reasoning), which ultimately contributed to the formulation of her theory of the Right Functional Scoliosis (RFS).

In addition to her physiotherapy career, Valentyna has performed with the State Opera of South Australia as a chorus member in more than 40 productions, over a period of 24 years. She has also taught singing to adults and children, and more recently has trained in vocal physiotherapy techniques as well as the Estill Voice Training method.

A second edition detailing how the RFS can contribute to vocal, throat or jaw issues, as well as to upper limb (shoulder and elbow pain) and lower limb (hip, knee and heel pain) conditions is already in the planning.

Stepping Stones to Oneness

Poetry is the language of the heart, the seeker, and the lover. It has the capacity to transcend the bounds of this world and speak directly to the soul in profound and simple text.

In this anthology, the poet shares the words of inspiration and revelation that flowed from within during her journey to Oneness – that state of being when the separate sense of self dissolves and only One remains – complete, boundless, joyous, and full of a profound love of all things. Each poem has been woven into a powerful and transformative process that unfolds as Stepping Stones along the path.  They provide guidance to the seeker and bring all those who read them closer to the very heart of their true nature.

The Seven Stories we tell Ourselves

Through all the events of our lives, we take the “facts” and arrange them into narratives that we tell ourselves.

Did you know we only have 7 basic stories from which to create these narratives?

And you can choose your narrative. But there are consequences
to the narrative that we tell ourselves. Each narrative has a pathway to resolution, a direction we must take. Each narrative can either serve us or hinder us in finding contentment and control in our lives. We can choose our narrative actively and therefore have control over our lives or we can allow ourselves
to choose subconsciously and accept the consequences of this.

The Seven Stories We Tell Ourselves provides a framework for understanding how we are telling our stories to ourselves.
It shows us the alternatives available for us to change our narratives and how we must proceed within our lives toward resolution of our daily conflicts and struggles. It is filled with inspiring stories and examples as well as tools to help us become the captain of our own ship, to be in charge of our own lives and to LIVE CONSCIOUSLY.

Crushing Crohn’s

Some people view chronic illnesses like Crohn’s as a lifelong prison sentence.
Initially, I, too, shared that belief. I was dealt a bad medical hand at the age of eighteen and had to ‘shuffle the deck’ in my favour. In time, I discovered actions that led to a life free of medication. It’s highly unusual to hear of someone who has defeated severe Crohn’s disease and wrote a book about their experience – not that one should brag about their bowel habits or any other ritual that involves a toilet. Years of trial and error led to six simple principles that apply to crushing Crohn’s and reaching your goals. This book shares my journey with the reader, from symptoms, diagnosis, experimentation, to remission. It’s time to turn the tide and wake up to our inflammatory world. A change is coming, and it all starts with what we put in our mouths.
