my skill set.
“I’ve been fortunate to have clients with sig-
nificant health issues who I have been able to
help feel better.”
Reflexology is a technique that has proven
to help many of Sarah’s patients, based on the
principle that certain parts of the body reflect
Reflex points, which relate to all parts of the
body, can be found in the feet, hands, face and
These points respond to pressure, stimulat-
ing the body’s own natural healing process.
The body starts progressively clearing block-
ages, re-establishing energy flows and balanc-

Gippslanders urged to go
smoke free for 2017
QUIT Victoria is encouraging Gippsland resi-
dents who are still smoking to butt out for a
fresh start to 2017.
Gippsland has higher than state average quit-
ting rates in Bass Coast, South Gippsland, Wel-
lington and East Gippsland.
However, Baw Baw and Latrobe are among
just four local government areas in Victoria
where there are more smokers than ex-smok-
The Victorian Population Health Survey shows
that 20 per cent of Gippsland adults smoke dai-
ly or occasionally (current smokers).
This is significantly higher than the 13 per
cent of Victorian adults who are current smok-
For Gippsland men, 23 per cent are smokers
compared to 15 per cent of men across Victoria.
Among Gippsland women, 16 per cent are
smokers compared to the average 12 per cent
for women state-wide.
Quit Victoria director Dr Sarah White, a
proud South Gippslander, said a new year was
a great time to make a fresh start, and encour-
aged Gippsland smokers to put quitting at the
top of their agenda.
“It doesn’t matter if you didn’t quit smoking
on January 1 – in fact, we recommend setting
a quit date after the holiday period when peo-
ple are back to work or the kids are back at
school,” Dr White said.
“This gives people time to put strategies in
place to avoid situations that trigger the urge to
smoke, and set up some new and healthier rou-
tines for 2017.
“Making quitting a priority this January will
bring immediate benefits for your health and
the health of those around you, and will save
a pack a day smoker more than $9000 a year.
How good would it be to start 2018 with that
kind of cash in your bank account?
“A great first step is to phone the Quitline
and talk to a Quit Specialist who can provide
personalised, non-judgemental coaching and
advice on understanding your smoking triggers
and setting up a tailored quitting plan.”
Dr White said quitting could be difficult for
some smokers, but every attempt teaches peo-
ple something about their addiction and habits
and takes them closer to being a non-smoker.
“Not everyone succeeds the first, second, or
even third time they try to quit but it’s important
to give it another go.
“In most parts of Victoria there are more
former smokers than current smokers, so we
know that quitting smoking is absolutely do-
able. It will also deliver massive benefits for
your health and wealth.”
Tools available at www.quit.org.au can help
people understand their smoking habits, choose
the best way to quit and plan their quit attempt.
Smokers can also phone the Quitline on 13 78
48 to get personalised, non-judgmental coach-
ing and advice.
