November News from Revive
STAFF TEAM FUN DAY
Last week we held our bi annual team day at the Victoria Park Golf club. Our intention for the day was to have a fun day together to help the team hit the reset button on their own mental health, personal and work goals and to have some giggles together. Mission accomplished ! We have many budding artists and some groovy movers after showcasing our talents in an art activity and a lip synch competition. Kara's team won the lip synch but there was some pretty dodgy judging from Yulia on the day :)
WOMENS' HEALTH PLANNING DAY
On Tuesday the 18th of October, 4 women embarked on a treacherous and uncertain journey.
Their mission was to restore the pelvic health world at Revive to a new and glorious position, so that ALL pelvic floors could be victorious once again.
They fought rabbits of old and incorrect handouts (that just kept re-spawning from SOMEWHERE), they crunched numbers and proof read documents until their eyes rolled out from their sockets). They founded new research that debunked the many myths of the pelvic health land and set out to right the wrongs of all literature that came before them. With blood, sweat and countless mini snickers they got the job done.
We are proud to say we now have:
Up to date information handouts for:
- Pelvic pain with focus on relaxation techniques
- Pelvic Floor stretches handout - with global focus on hip and lower back mobility
- Endometriosis info handout
- Postnatal info booklet
- Antenatal info booklet
- Perineal massage handout
- Prolapse info handout
- Guidelines for pessary support doc
- Bladder training for urgency/OAB techniques
- Trans tibial nerve stim handout
- Exercise sheets: postnatal mobility/strengthening, pregnancy mobility and general exercise handouts
- Stress urinary incontinence info handout
We have our WH in service topics booked out until Christmas. With a big focus on up-skilling in diagnosis of prolapse, as well as making sure we are across the latest research update on management of diastasis rectus abdominus and minimising risk of obstetric anal sphincter injury during child birth.
We have arriving at the clinic new pelvic health equipment including vaginal trainers/dilators, pelvic tension release wands, contiforms among other educational and functional client resources. We would like to say a big thank you to Jules again for letting us have this time and from me, a huge thank you to Jess, Kat and Celia for being such Boss's at this. We got a lot done and our heads are a lot clearer for it, we are going to be in a much better position going forward to give our clients the best and most up to date evidence based information. Revive's women's and pelvic health is at such an exciting time and is growing very quickly! Loving being a part of it! (Sabrina )
Elise has moved into a new role at Ashgrove and is now our Admin Team Leader and Senior Receptionist at the Ashgrove clinic. Elise is a superstar at organising everything and everyone with grace and ease (and a little bit of bossy) and we are excited to see her grow into this new role. Congratulations to Elise!
Phoebe has also moved into a new role at West End and is now our Admin Team Leader and Senior Receptionist at the WE clinic.
Coming from a background in hospitality into health care admin, Phoebe is the ultimate hostess with the mostest and she's always up for a chat!
We are excited to see Phoebe embrace this new role and offer her a big congrats as well.

The theme for
World Diabetes Day 2021-23 is Access to Diabetes Care. The focus of the campaign in 2022 is access to diabetes
education, with the slogan "Education to protect tomorrow."
Regular physical activity is an important part of diabetes management and reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. Whether indoors or outdoors, every step counts to help stay healthy! This year we are joining in by exercising in blue. We would love to see our Revive Family join the team in wearing blue this WDD on Monday 14th November

SALVOS CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2022
We are again participating in the Salvation Army's Christmas appeal and will be accepting donations from Monday 14th November. You can drop off non perishable food items and unwrapped gifts up to the 16th December to the clinic and put under our tree - and we will deliver to the Salvos by their final delivery date to allow them time to wrap and sort the gifts.
This year is likely to be a particularly hard year for those already under financial pressure with the rising cost of living so please consider sharing the true spirit of Christmas and help us make this years appeal the best one yet.
