Therapeutic Salt Caves open in Letterkenny

first_imgAmanda Torrens, from Raphoe in Co. Donegal, is no stranger to the healthcare sector and over the last seventeen years has built and developed a group of nursing homes earning an excellent reputation in care provision for their residents throughout Ireland.Amanda’s latest launch in conjunction with her business partner Dr. Remo Schneider from Switzerland has brought to her home county of Donegal salt therapy treatments and a breakthrough innovative technology in PelviPower.The salt caves are designed to alleviate respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, hay fever, COPD and others and for your skin such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis and more. Amanda Torrens, CEO PonteMed Ireland, Dr. Remo P. Schneider, CEO PonteMed AG Schweiz and Packie Bonner, Ireland’s Soccer Legend who officially opened Salt Caves Ireland & PelviPower at Pontemed Clinic, Letterkenny.The Salt Caves has natural antibacterial, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties which will improve your overall wellbeing and fitness. All you have to do is, sit back, relax and breath. Let the Salt Caves Therapy do the rest and you can enjoy the experience.When you sit in one of our Salt Caves, a halo generator grinds up pharmaceutical grade salt into minute particles that become airborne when dispersed into the room. The dry salt aerosol particles are then inhaled deep into the lungs to help relieve inflammation, loosen congestion to allow easier and improved breathing.The salt particles help to open up the airways, increase oxygen intake and cleanse the airways of smoke, dust, pollutants and other allergens. When salt lands on the skin it can also help to relieve sore, flakey, red and irritated skin.It is important to understand that salt therapy is not an alternative therapy, but a complementary one. It can help relieve the symptoms of a condition and work in conjunction with existing medication, resulting in even greater relief. Commenting on her new venture, Amanda says, “I am delighted to be in a position to bring salt therapy to Letterkenny. The public have embraced the concept which is great and have enjoyed the results in what it can do to enhance their quality of life from respiratory and dermatological issues. The amount of people through our doors to date has been outstanding and our team there have excelled in dealing with the influx of users.“It is just amazing for us to see the results being achieved by our customers and it has already had a profound effect on some of their lives. People have come to us to help with their breathing and skin problems and have had great success, once these conditions have been resolved they are returning for further treatments due to the relaxing and calming effects they and their children are experiencing.”Amanda added that, “We have created a sanctuary for people to come and unwind. Our world is so fast-paced and we just want people to come and turn off their phones and breathe and be with themselves, be present with themselves and just relax. It’s the high mineral content and the way it interacts naturally with our bodies that makes the treatment so beneficial.“The Himalayan salt contains many of the minerals that the human body needs. Our clients breathe in the minerals and feel the benefits after just a few visits.”PelviPower is a revolutionary treatment for Urinary Incontinence (UI) which is now available in Donegal. PelviPower is an innovative and scientific technology introduced by PonteMed Ireland, it will permanently change the lives of thousands of people suffering from bladder weakness and back pain in the North-West Region.PelviPower has proven effective in treating pre-and postoperative patients undergoing Prostate surgery. It has been hailed as a breakthrough in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. 50% of men over the age of 40 suffer from the condition. The success rate for treating back pain is well documented, an estimated 1.65m people in Ireland suffer with back pain, with 21% reporting living with pain for more than a decade. Conditions affecting the bladder are highly stigmatising.Individuals experiencing UI tend to feel embarrassed about their symptoms and can be reluctant to engage in social activities.PonteMed begins its national expansion, having already installed a unit at Bons Secours Galway and The Galway Clinic. Limerick has been identified as the next location for the treatment and it is expected to be up and running by December at The Bons at Baringtons. When Amanda was asked about PelviPower, she stated “Letterkenny is the first PelviPower centre to open in Ireland and we are looking forward to opening six more in the next year in Cork, Galway, Limerick, Kilkenny, Kildare and Dublin. This technology is the first of its kind to hit our island and I am proud to have brought it to my home county of Donegal first.“This innovative medical device is a passive treatment which strengthens the pelvic floor and builds your inner core strength, something of which we all tend to forget about, yet it is vital to our inner wellbeing especially in today’s world.”Amanda added that, “Having seen it in operation in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where it has become a permanent part of treatment, I was convinced that thousands of sufferers in Ireland would benefit from this treatment.”More information is available directly from:PonteMed Clinic,Scally Place,Justice Walsh Road,Letterkenny,Co.

Engaging Military Parents in Family Skills Training

first_imgBy Jay Morse & Heidi Radunovich, PhDCreative Commons [Flickr, Area I Community Baby Shower, June 2, 2012]The ADAPT (After Deployment, Adaptive Parenting Tools) parent training program has been developed for military parents who are seeking to improve their parenting skills [1].  Parent participation in the study was high and preliminary data from the study have indicated that military parents – both the military member and spouse – are willing to participate in parenting skills training.The ADAPT program was developed by modifying one of the interventions developed through the empirically tested Parent Management Training – Oregon (PMTO) model.  The ADAPT program was modified to address the specific needs of military parents after deployment.  Adaptations included the military cultural context, reintegration issues, combat stress reactions and their impact on the family and parenting, and ways to manage roadblocks to group participation.The program addresses 5 positive parenting practices: (1) skills encouragement; (2) positive involvement; (3) family problem-solving; (4) monitoring; and, (5) effective discipline.  Parenting skills were taught weekly for 14, 2-hour group sessions.  In addition to group training sessions, ADAPT provided web-based training modules that included skill and practice videos, mindfulness exercises, and home practice assignments.  A total of 42 families participated in this first study, who participated in groups of 5-6 families.  An almost equal number of fathers and mothers participated in the study (39 mothers and 36 fathers).  The most common number of children in the family was 2, with 44% of the families reporting 3 or more children.  The National Guard and Reserve (NG/R) participant group was skewed towards higher ranks.  Almost one-third (31%) of the participants were officers compared with a national average of 15% officers in the NG/R.  Recruitment was measured by the count of families that participated in at least one group session.  Retention measures included weekly attendance, completion of home practice assignments, and usage of online tools.  Acceptability of the program was measured using a 20-item questionnaire targeting participant satisfaction, group experience, and home practice satisfaction.Of the 42 families invited to attend group sessions, 33 families attended at least one session.  On average, at least one parent attended 10 sessions, with 79% attending at least 50% of the sessions.  Over one-half of the families accessed the online tools at least once.  Use of the online tools varied greatly, with an average use of 15 times during the study period.  Families used summaries the most (33%), followed by knowledge checks (32%), videos (30%), and handouts (25%).  The mindfulness exercises were the least utilized online tool, with only 19% of families accessing the mindfulness module.  Families that actively participated in group sessions were more likely to access the online training modules.Of particular note, several families in the study indicated that they enjoyed ADAPT because the program was consistent with the values associated with military life, such as structure, clarity, and routines.  The authors also reported that families seemed to be more willing to participate when the program emphasized prevention and was offered in the form of education, particularly in a community setting.This study did not assess behavior change in the families who participated, but instead focused on utilization of and satisfaction with the ADAPT program.  It appears that adaptations made to the PMTO program to create the ADAPT program were well-received by this audience. Clinicians who work with military families that experience deployment may want to consider using the ADAPT program to assist with reintegration.References[1] Gewirtz, A. H., Pinna, K. M., Hanson, S.
