Tetra Society of NA – Regina Chapter

Tetra recruits volunteers who work with clients to design and build assistive devices that are custom-made for the individual – these are devices that are either not available commercially or cost-prohibitive. As a non-profit organization, Tetra raises funds to deliver this program, including covering the costs of volunteer travel and materials for devices up to $500 per project.

Tetra’s core focus is to address barriers that affect a person’s ability to live life independently due to obstacles in their environment. One of Tetra’s founding principles is that people are not marginalized by their disability, but by obstacles in their environment. Tetra works to reduce or eliminate these obstacles. Over the past 30+ years, Tetra volunteers have built devices that support:

  • Communication
  • Eating and drinking
  • Completing household chores and personal care
  • Mobility

Finding the Right Matchmaker

Curious about seeking out matchmaking services, but don’t know where to start or what to look for? While many people may advertise themselves as matchmakers, it takes a special skillset to truly excel. Some important questions to ask prior to investing in a matchmaking service include: 1) How long has the company been in business? More than 5 years is ideal. 2) Are they upfront with their fees and do they have a legal contract? 3) Do they have any references? 4) Do they have a professional website and social media presence? 5) What is their process?

Could It Be A Leaky Gut?

Do you suffer from symptoms such as fatigue, low energy, brain fog, and headaches? What about acid reflux, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, inflammation, or hormonal issues? Are you still looking for answers about your symptoms? It could be leaky gut! Over 90% of people have a leaky gut, which happens when there are gaps in the lining of your intestinal walls that allow food particles, bacteria, and waste products to travel directly into your bloodstream. If you’ve tried everything to find some relief and found that nothing has worked so far, contact me about a potential solution!

Abundance and Receiving

How willing are you to receive in your life? If receiving has been a challenge for you, reflect on how tuned in you are to your feminine energy (we all have both masculine and feminine energy within us). When we turn on our feminine energy, we can receive, surrender, slow down, and be more present. Embodiment Breathwork Sessions allow you to tune into your feminine energy and womb space to release and surface unprocessed emotions and traumas our body holds onto that may be preventing us from receiving the abundance in our life that we all have access to!

Considering Compression Stockings?

Compression is great for jobs with prolonged sitting or standing, pregnancy and pre and post-vein surgery. They are also great for everyday activities, like hiking, and jogging! Benefits include improving circulation, reducing swelling, and relieving achy and fatigued legs. Get them fitted by a trained professional and ensure the compression is graduated; strongest at the ankle and less as it moves up the leg. They come in various colors and styles to meet your needs and personal preferences. Most benefit plans cover medical compression stockings annually with a doctor’s prescription.

What is Physical Literacy?

Physical literacy is the mastery of a range of fundamental movement skills that enable and encourage lifelong participation in physical and sporting activities. It’s the philosophy that underpins physical education in schools, and more and more, it’s being seen as the most effective antidote to childhood obesity and the many problems associated with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles. Sportball champions physical literacy by focusing on and promoting building skills for life, including sport skills, pro social skills, and motor skills. Sportball’s curriculum teaches physical literacy through its methodology, in which all games, activities, and instructions have a purpose and expected outcome.

Quieting the Mind for Growth

Coaching is not advice, therapy, or counselling. Working with a coach is about supporting your self-awareness and building capacity to trust your inner wisdom to make the changes you desire. The Enneagram Personality Type System is one tool that can be used to deepen this self-awareness. The Enneagram works with your three centres of intelligence: your body, heart, and head. Our hearts are often protecting us from reliving past pains and our heads are often worrying about the future in a way that stops us from being in this moment. When we use our bodies to sense into this moment – we become grounded, allowing our hearts to open, and our minds to quiet – knowing what is needed.
