Stone Cladding Townsville for both Houses and Commercial Buildings

Stacked stone, which may also be referred to be some people as stone veneer or stone cladding, is a type of cladding that can be applied to both internal as well as external walls and is used to help decorate both residential as well as commercial properties. It does bring with it a number of advantages, but before discussing those it is perhaps best to first of all offer up a better description as to what this is and how you can actually have it installed.

Stacked stone is something that is used to create a special effect on section of walls to make them stand out or quite often to surround a fireplace. It gives the impression of thin layers of stone being laid upon one another, much like a dry stone wall, so it is certainly something that is extremely tidy to look at. There are various types of stone that can be used as it does often depend upon what is in the locality, but once the job is done it can look pretty spectacular.

When it comes to the benefits then there are several benefits linked to its aesthetic side whilst others are more about its practicality. It is, therefore, a good idea to begin with the aesthetics first although it has to be said that there are more practical benefits than aesthetic.

By using this method it does give the area a rather classy and elegant feeling to it and this is often quoted as being one reason why so many official buildings will have areas where it is incorporated during its construction. For residential areas it can give often make a house stand out from the others and give it a sense of dignity and a certain panache as it is different to the normal bricks and mortar that you see everywhere else. The fact there are so many different types of stone, and therefore colors, does mean that no two walls will be identical even within the same house.

The main benefits of stacked stone are; however, practical and one of the first is actually that it is very cost effective as a form of cladding compared to other methods that are also used. It is of course also better at weathering and will, therefore, last longer and due to the material there is also less chance of it being damaged in some way, which is important when it is used externally. This is of course due to the fact that it is extremely strong and when it comes to construction you should never underestimate the importance of strength. It can of course also cope with a corner being flaked off without it damaging the overall integrity of the cladding as this will not make it any weaker and the same cannot be said if glass or wood is damaged in any way.

So that is what is meant by the term stacked stone and there are also several of the benefits of having this kind of decoration in either your home or commercial premises. There are a wide range of options in regard to styles and colors of stones available so do just take some time looking at what is available from the company that is going to do the work and try to see which option you believe blends in best with its surroundings.

This strength theme is carried on as it is of course not going to be at risk of a termite infestation unlike wood so there will be less need to have things repaired or even entire walls rebuilt. It does, therefore, mean that it lowers the chances of any kind of bug infestation from the outside as they will find it harder to work their way through stone when compared to other materials that may be used.

Finally, you will find that stacked stone is extremely easy to maintain and indeed cleaning it is a very simple task that can be carried out using normal cleaning materials and there is no need to get anything specifically aimed at the material in question. It will also not require you to clean it as often as other materials, therefore, saving you a lot of time and effort as well as money.

Information About Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

You may be wondering what exactly is Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
(UGS) is and how it can benefit you. If are interested in learning more about Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, then continue to read on.

What Is Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
If you have ever wanted to look into varicose vein removal services, then you may have heard about Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy. The procedure is considered one of the best varicose vein removal procedures there is. It is very safe and it is very effective at removing varicose veins. It is a great alternative to surgery.

How The Procedure Works
The reason why the procedure works so well is because of duplex ultrasoun. The duplex ultrasound locates the vein/veins that cannot be seen with the human eye. These hidden veins are what cause the bulges on the surface. After the veins are discovered, you will receive a certain amount of injections. Once the first procedure is completed a may need a follow-up examinations. However, some people do need a few more follow-up procedures in order for success, but keep in mind that everybody is different. You may only need one procedure done, or you may need a few. The procedure is very simple and is one of the easiest ways to treat varicose veins. All a person does is lay on the treatment couch, receive the ultrasound, a few injections and that is it.

The Benefits Of UGS
UGS has many benefits, and being less traumatic than surgery may be the best benefit. Many people have said that they felt more comfortable going for a UGS than they did going in for surgery.

Another benefit of UGS is affordability. It is much more affordable than surgery. People with all types of budgets find that the procedure is a very affordable option.

Not only is the procedure an affordable varicose vein removal option, but it is also a very quick procedure when compared to surgery. Since UGS is quick and not as complicated as surgery, there is no need to take time off of work. There are many people who go in for the procedure and then go to work just a few short hours later, with no complications.

Many people who go in for surgery to get their varicose veins removed they often complain about pain after the surgery and the amount of time it takes to heal from surgery is longer than they expected. However, that is not the case with UGS. When a person goes in for UGS they can expect a very quick healing process. Not only is the healing process very quick, but the procedure is virtually painless.

Many varicose vein removal procedures can leave scars and if a person decides to go for surgery, then they may have to receive stitches. People who choose UGS will be pleased to know that the procedure will not leave any scars. Not only will there be no scars once the procedure is completed, but no stiches will be required. This means that most people will not even be able to notice that a person has even got the procedure done.

As mentioned earlier people are often shocked at how affordable UGS is, but what shocks them even more is that most medical insurers covers all costs associated with UGS or almost all the costs. If a person does not have insurance, then they will most likely still be able to afford the procedure.

If you are like many people, then you may not feel comfortable going under anesthesia. This is the reason why many people prefer not to go in for surgery when they want their varicose veins removed. When a person goes in for UGS, there is no need for anesthesia and there is no admission to a hospital.

The results are the biggest benefits of receiving UGS. There is no permanent fix for getting rid of varicose veins, but UGS is the closest thing to a permanent cure for varicose veins. People who end up getting UGS are usually very happy with their results and the procedure ends up working out better than they could ever imagine.

If you have ever wanted to get rid of your varicose veins, then UGS is the answer. For more information about varicose veins Brisbane, contact the Brisbane leg vein doctor today.

Messages on Hold

Are you looking for ways to get your message across to your customers? Did you know that you can literally do so – yes, give your message to them one-on-one – with simple equipment that you probably already own? And did you know that the sales and communication tool in question is such a dinky little tool that it can camouflage itself as excellent customer service to your unsuspecting customers?

You may be surprised to find that this remarkable sales tool is nothing more than the system of ‘On Hold Messages’. This is a much underappreciated and underused tool that is so widely available in most of our telephone systems that it’s a shame to not utilize it, especially when it can have very high success rates in converting potential customers into leads.

A lot of companies spend a lot of time and money on glitzy marketing tools and service to help maintain their professional images. But what they don’t realize is that they can make the most of the resources that they have by also taking advantage of the little avenues of communication that we take for granted.

Why use on hold messages?

There are plenty of reasons why you should.

Firstly, make the most of every customer interaction.

Most business owners have their waiting callers listen to chimes, plain music, the radio or worst of all, that terrible long pause. Chances are that after a reasonably long hold, a certain percentage of customers will simply abandon the call – a waste of time (and money) both for you and the customer. Why let go of a perfectly good opportunity to make your customers feel that you are a brand they would like to do business with?

With ‘On Hold Messages’ you can make a good first impression, especially if the caller is connecting to you for the first time. Your messages can be your best salesperson if you let it, simply at the push of a button!

You think your customers already know what you sell? Think again.

Customers forget. There are so many options available to them in today’s competitive market that they tend to forget what you have on offer for them. Remind them of what you sell. You can utilize the little waiting time when they call to do so.

It’s important to utilize every customer interaction.

And that only touches the surface of what’s possible with these messages. Surveys have shown that having a message-on-hold system can reduce the chances of your customer hanging up the call by as much as 90 percent. Also at least 20 percent of callers are likely to make a purchase based on the messages that they hear during a call.

You can customize your messages on hold in any way you want. It’s easy and inexpensive to do so. You can have special messages during the holiday season to make the customer feel that there’s a real persona behind the company. You will be educating your customers about your products and selling at the same time. And most importantly, you will be letting your customers know that you are a leader in your industry.

Here are a few things you can do with your messages on hold :
Use the process of answering the telephone, placing it on hold and transferring the call to the relevant department to show your customers how professional you are. This can be an effective image-booster (or breaker) depending on how you use it.
Cross-promote all the products and services that you offer your customers. In that way, an existing customer of yours will be made aware of your other areas of expertise, and this is a great way to keep your customers coming back to you for other needs as well. Also, customers need to reminded from time to time of the products and services that you have for them.

You can promote your website, make announcements or promote any other special features. Remind your client about the referral programs that you have.

Having your customers listen to your messages on hold is like having your best salesperson talking to each customer every minute of every day. You have your caller’s complete attention during the call at what is, virtually, point of sale. Use your on hold messages to reinforce your current advertising campaigns. From a marketing point of view, it’s vital that all calls deal with your company dealerships when your customers are on hold.

Try it, and watch the potentials convert to leads like never before.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Options

Plantar fasciitis is extremely common affecting around 10% of the adult population at some time in life. Commonly plantar fasciitis is associated with heel spurs however on x-ray only 50% of patients with plantar fasciitis have evidence of calcification through the heel (DiMarcangelo, 1997).

Commonly plantar fasciitis symptoms start as an awareness or ache in the morning. Relief treatment can be quite simple at this time however if it is left, these symptoms will often slowly progress to pain that significantly impacts quality of life.

When targeting plantar fasciitis symptoms your practitioner will guide you through the best strategy or combination of strategies to help relieve and control your individual pain. At Body Leadership Australia we recommend a multimodal approach utilising a number of different treatment options.

Soft Tissue Release
Tightness of the muscles surrounding the foot have been found to pull hard enough on the bones that they alter the natural shape of the foot and ankle often leading to plantar fasciitis pain. Accordingly, release techniques and stretching of the lower limb muscles can have an effect on decreasing symptoms associated with plantar fasciitis.

Stretching
Strategic stretching of the calf muscles and Achilles tendon or on the plantar fascia itself can decrease pain associated with plantar fasciitis. You should get a program tailored to your individual needs.

Orthotics
Orthotics can help to relieve the effects of plantar fasciitis. Changing the weight load through the foot can allow the inflammatory response to settle by supporting the foot appropriately.

Night Splints (Strassburg Sock)
The use of a night splint can reduce recovery time compared to the same protocol utilising standing stretches through the calf.

Cortisone
Cortisone was always a last resort due to potential complications and pain post injection. Now with ultrasound guidance outcomes have improved and we see them used more effectively. Cortisone options can be discussed with your health care professional.

Surgery
A number of studies found 75% to 95% of patients had long term improvement as measured by various criteria. Up to 27% of patients still had significant pain, up to 20% had some activity restriction, and up to 12% had moderate pain that impaired function (Brown et al., 1999; Davies et al., 1999; Fishco et al., 2000). Surgical options are always a last resort.

Once your pain is treated and controlled it is important to understand your individual factors that predispose you to plantar fasciitis which can be explained by your physiotherapist. You can then be taught a home program to release tension, particularly through the calf as well as the foot to nip problems in the bud. This can also be optimised using home exercises to improve strength for better control of your biomechanics long term.

If you, your friend or family member suffer from plantar fasciitis please do not hesitate to contact one of our friendly Brisbane sports physiotherapists on 07 3847 8040. Our Brisbane sports physios can also provide treatment from our Brisbane Sports Physiotherapy practice.

Have Cane Will Travel – Disabled Travel in Australia

Award-winning comedy writer, Ian Heydon (Kingswood Country, How Green Was My Cactus, The Samuel Pepys Show, The Year My Country Broke) recently took out an unexpected award – for writing about travelling with a disability.

In 2010 Ian was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That led to the question – what does a writer who has a disability and who loves to travel write about? The answer was pretty obvious. Because Ian uses a cane for mobility assistance, he built a website called Cane & Able Travel and that site won the inaugural Business disAbility Award for Business Innovation in 2012.

Back in 2003, Ian had a travel book on Australia published called The Small Guide to A Big Country (Explore) and he subsequently bought a travel agent’s licence (Small Guide Travel). Much of Ian’s research for that book is still valid. As Ian says, “They haven’t moved the Sydney Opera House or most of Australia’s main attractions, so all I really needed to do was update where necessary and add the accessibility and disability facility information. It’s a bonus that the Small Guide Travel consultants can assist with itinerary advice and bookings.”

When Ian travels these days he uses both a cane and a wheelchair for getting around. “Before my diagnosis with MS I guess I felt a bit of pity when I saw other people in wheelchairs. I didn’t realise that wheelchairs give a person with a disability so much freedom. Mine allows me to get around much better at airports, especially when the boarding gate can be a fair distance from check-in, and it makes art galleries, museums and theatre so much more accessible and enjoyable.”

Ian first took his wheelchair on a trip to Dubai, London and Paris in 2012. While there are websites with attractions and disability information for those destinations in the pipeline, Ian’s first priority is writing about Australia. In late 2012 he visited Cairns and road-tested attractions like Skyrail and Quicksilver’s Great Barrier Reef as well as disabled-friendly accommodation. From this came the destination specific website, Cairns Disabled Travel.

The next cab of the rank was Canberra. According to Ian, Canberra is arguably Australia’s most rewarding destination for travellers with a disability. “There are flights from all other major cities and centres, they have an excellent public transport and wheelchair-assisted taxi system and all the major attractions are accessible, with many of them free. There’s excellent accommodation, terrific restaurants and bars and so much to see and do. It really is a fabulous tourist destination. Sure, after a couple of weeks there might be some thumb twiddling but for a few days away it is fabulous.” Ian visited Canberra in 2011 and 2013 to research accessible accommodation and attractions and the Canberra Disabled Travel website is now live.

Ian has a multi-destination itinerary on the drawing board for all Australian capital cities and major regional centres so you could see him soon in your part of the country. But the Kingswood? No, he won’t be taking the Kingswood!

About 3,000 years ago, the island of Nauru was first inhabited by Polynesian and Micronesian people. As you can see, the national flag of Nauru displays a 12 pointed star. It represents the 12 traditional tribes of Nauru. The early Nauruans were experts in aquaculture.

The first westerner to visit Nauru was John Fearn, a British naval captain and a whale hunter, in 1798. Nauruans traded with Europeans starting around 1830. Among the items they traded were fresh water (from Nauru) and food for wine and firearms. These firearms were used in the Nauruan Tribal War that lasted for ten years (1878 – 1888) and reduced the Nauru population from 1,400 to 900 people.

The war ended when the Germans arrived and incorporated Nauru into the Marshall Island Protectorate of Germany. The war established rulers and kings of Nauru brought significant changes.

A prospector named Albert Ellis discovered that Nauru was rich in phosphate. In a 1906 agreement with Germany, the Pacific Phosphate Company began exploiting the island. In 1914, Australian troops captured Nauru in 1914. Since then, the island has been under the governance of countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and United Kingdom.

The island has also been involved in the historical World War 2. When the war ended, The United Nations entrusted Nauru to New Zealand, United Kingdom and Australia. In 1966, Nauru became a self governing entity. In 1968, it has achieved its independence under the leadership of Hammer DeRoburt, the country’s founding president.

Getting Your Money’s Worth With Hair Removal in Brisbane

Hair removal treatments are no walk in the park. They are obviously slightly painful, but having them done by experts can turn your hair removal appointments into anticipated spa dates and well worth the money you pay for them. With the number of spas and hair removal clinics in Brisbane, it is difficult to choose a clinic and expect the best results, not unless the clinic has the best reputation around. If you are searching for a clinic randomly, you could end up going to a clinic who will give you subpar service and and results that are below what you expected.

How Hair Removal is Done
Hair removal treatments use laser pulses to kill the hair by focusing the light on the pigment which absorbs the light and causes the death of the hair follicle. This means that you get a permanent, hair-free, smooth skin, with no need to use temporary hair removal products and procedures such as depilatories and waxing just to get the same results.

Hair removal is the removal of hair from various parts of the body, not just on the obvious places such as the legs and back. You can also have hair removal done on your face, your chest and other places where hair should not be. Hair removal clinics and spas offer related services such as chemical facial peels, treatments for various skin conditions such as psoriasis, sun damage and pigmentation.

How to Choose Your Hair Removal Clinic

Technology

Use a clinic that uses the latest in hair removal technology if you want safe and clean procedures. Sophisticated hair removal procedures uses more powerful light and double safety techniques which reduces the number of sessions needed to completely remove your hair. Despite the more expensive price tag, you reduce costs since you reduce the number of sessions and recovery time is shorter. We use Alexandrite lasers which are currently the best for permanent hair removal or hair reduction. These lasers have 755 nm wavelengths and are most suited for targeting melanin, the pigment that absorbs light.

 

We also use IPL or intense pulsed light, which offer a more subtle form of hair removal that is temporary. This technology uses a broad spectrum light filtered through a glass crystal. Although anyone can do this procedure, we have licensed technicians doing procedures such as these to ensure maximum safety and comfort for our clients. IPL is often the best procedure for removing skin imperfections, such as freckles and sun damage discoloration, acne scarring and facial veins.

Friendly staff
You want to go to a clinic or a spa and enjoy your time there. Grumpy,untrained staff will not make the experience any more relaxing for you. It is best to visit several clinics and get a feel for the atmosphere by looking at how staff interact with clients. You want to feel pampered and cared for, not harassed nor embarrassed when you step into the clinic.

Certified technicians
