Osteoporosis is a silent disease affecting 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men. You probably won't know you have it until you've fractured a bone and had a DEXA test.
Your "Bone Mineral Level" is not the same as your "Bone Density" (measured by a DEXA test) but it's a good proxy for it. In this workshop, we'll measure your Bone Mineral Level & several other muscle measures that are so important in maintaining strong bones. You'll have a personalised report to take home.
There will also be a group learning session explaining your report, how to tailor your diet, exercise and hormone balance to maintain and strengthen your bones. The workshop will be led by Sally Campbell of Campbell Pilates & Wellness, a certified nutritionist, Pilates teacher, women's wellness coach and Osteoporosis expert. There will also be an overview of the different types of bone drugs available on prescription, how they work and their side effects, to prepare you for a conversation with your GP (if you want to explore that option).
Please wear loose comfortable clothing or workout clothes. You will need to take your shoes and socks off for a few minutes to have your Bone Mineral Level measured. Coffee and tea will be provided at the start of the Workshop while everyone is having their Assessments.
Tickets are transferable to a female friend/family member at any time. Full refunds are available up to 7 days before the Workshop.
