Men’s Health Week

June 13th - 19th, 2022

Men's Health Week

13 – 19th June 2022

This week we put our Men, Boys, and those identifying as male as our focus. 

Men’s Health Week is aiming to increase awareness of preventable health problems in men of all ages. Each year men are encouraged to be proactive with their own health and wellbeing and are reminded to engage in healthier lifestyle choices. 

Showcasing our incredible practitioners and facilities we would love to encourage you or the men and young men in your life to come in and get spoilt on us. 

Not only have we curated a week of incredible events we have made them as accessible as possible and made them complementary. 

Synkro is the new premium Wellness Precinct in Karrinyup Shopping Centre and we are proud to support our community through our memberships and these powerful events to give health holistically to our members and customers.

6:00pm – 9:00pm  Men’s Breathwork – Ronan McKenna Book Now

Based on ancient knowledge and current science, Breathwork uses a specific pattern of accelerated breathing called Conscious Connected Breathing to access blocked energy and emotions that are stored at a cellular level in our bodies. This type of Breathwork will generate a relaxed, non-ordinary state of consciousness that supports the expression and release of unresolved trauma, limiting beliefs and adapted behaviour patterns. These issues can be the cause of current day dysfunction that is often associated with depression, stress and anxiety.

10:00 am Male Hormones: Desires, Urges & Alcohol – Dr. Simon Martin Book Now

What is Intimate Maturity?
1. After a male rat mates with a female mate, it exhibits what is called a refractory or satiation period. In this period, the male rat is not attracted to the female rat. However, if a novel stimulus (a new female rat) is introduced to the male within this refractory / satiation period, it becomes aroused. Similar research holds true for female rats.
Q: So, What does this hormonal phenomenon mean for fidelity and intimate-health in committed relationships? How can it be attenuated? And is there a difference between committed and non-committed intimacy practices?
2. Research shows how women display an unconscious attraction towards male dominance as a coping / survival mechanism. According to one study, ‘Love as a coping mechanism’ is best typified by a woman, or man, who believes: “If I love this person more, then they will not get angry or upset with me”. Research also shows how attachment disruption (e.g. developmental trauma) in early life can lead to unhealthy intimate behaviour in later life. For instance, a young boy who is abandoned by his mother may have a higher disposition to crossing intimate boundaries.
Q: How can you disentangle love from their love-as-a-coping-mechanism? Similarly, how can you disentangle attraction from attraction-as-a-danger-response? Both within yourself and with a partner / prospective-partner.

Summary: If either of the above aspects of male-intimacy are not understood properly – it can lead to negative experiences such as punctuated hurt, shame, self-directed aggression, and / or an unhealthy relationship to alcohol.
