Who is Heather Bruce?

A mother who became a student with her 6 week old baby in tow  . . and an acupuncturist in 1979 and working in the Brisbane city. Going through many ‘incarnations’ as a herbalist, naturopath, Western herbalist, Chinese herbalist, Arvigo and a Mercier practitioner and now having developed my own work – The Gentling Way. We work together on discovering why your body is stuck – and what has gotten you to where your body needs help to reset itself back to self healing.

What is she doing now as a wiser elder?


Acupuncture always my first love – 40+ years ago I was the first woman acupuncturist in Brisbane city –  then the only one to turn to with all women’s troubles. Especially around pregnancy and making better babies naturally. Always moving lymph and moving pain – so it become a distant memory.

Also always ready with handy hints – and helpful herbals – as a naturopath and now a Gentling Way and an Arvigo (and an Arvigo Self Care teacher) and Mercier therapist – there is little I can’t do to realign you back to balance – and back to enjoying being you.

I will use whatever tools (always also my hands) to assist you be the best you you can be.

Let us together delve into your past to see how this is holding you hostage and how through gently letting go you and release (in love) all that has blocked your being clearer and happier.

What you likely want . .


To live and to age well.
Have an easier life.
Lose your pain.   

Prepared to move off your stuck spot?
Happy to change as needed to have this happen?

I ask this as I work very differently.

Usually in intensive blocks.

It took you ages to get to here. I undo what is stuck. The body is used to being out of balance.

It has often taken all of your life to get in the present tangle.
Whatever the issue  – whether there even is one – you may just want wellness.

I am actively assisting others to live and look forwards to fruitful happy futures.

Living and aging well

Adhesions. scars and life incidents, surgeries, accidents all take their toll – your flows may not be flowing.


Qi/Blood/Lymph/life flows when the body and life are aligned

It is your journey, your life. Thus your responsibility

Living well is outside the scope of practice of those taught to deter death.
hence – this IS NOT MEDICAL INFORMATION – but a return to what all did know

Live Well.

A question .  . .

Are you ‘at home’ in yourself??

Can we put you back in alignment?

Your belly/back/pelvis being ‘out’ – may be uterine malposition. This makes life tricky.

Periods /fertility/sexuality a bit difficult.

Until this is fixed – that twisted pelvis will haunt you.
Circulation to your legs and lower body can’t be perfect when your uterus is not in her correct spot.
More on this to be explored  here and here.
Sessions typically last at least 2 usually 3 hours. At least weekly – hopefully sooner as we want to move forwards – not slide back.  By two sessions as you will feel vastly different. You will likely wish to complete the process – (at least 6 sessions) aligning ALL of yourself.
Structure – determines function
Skimming the surface (fixing what you think is all we need to do) works less well than undoing and repairing all that has happened to date.                                            YES it is very possible. .
I now mainly work intensively – as the shows it is not working.


I also have courses that can be taken to allow you to TAKE CHARGE yourself

In the past people came as they felt to/wanted to come.
one session at a time.
But now – by the time you are thinking of seeing me usually things are desperate and all else has failed.
Especially if you have now a ‘diagnosis’ It did not just happen – but was percolating for some time.
I suggest that IF you want to actually get well for good – intensives are the answer.

You WILL need to change
Sometimes everything

You may not feeling the best you . .
Know that things were better than now
Know that no one so far has put a finger on what is going on . .


Ask yourself  have you had enough yet?

 NOW – get started on a New You,

Let’s find out together what is holding YOUR life flows back.


What am I offering?


An opportunity to take charge again
A unique blend of what works.
In sequence individually crafted for you.
A combination of hands-on subtle, yet thorough ways to soothe and realign you.
Always within the gentle realms of allowing the body to heal itself.
A life raft – your body is totally able to heal itself – you need to change how you got to here
I can help with this.

Are we a good fit?


I am a Holistic
Multi modailty
Body worker.
Meaning that the suite of tools I have is extensive.
In a session I will choose for you what I feel best suits you – as there is so much that we all carry around as ‘baggage’ and sometimes it is time to let it go.

I am also a Common Sense Health Consultant


Gentling Ways – ihis is a off spin in addition to the pelvic work I started decades ago and published through the ‘What Dads Can Do’ manuals and DVD’s online available (and use yourself (for anyone) the moxa sacral fan) at home – and the specific pelvic clearing.

Start here always
It will fix what is ailing you – likely a uterus (or prostate) in misalignment – and whether or not they are removed – the ligaments are no longer doing what they are to do – and there you are – in constant pain to be adjusted constantly . .

See Women’s Health  Also more here:

Your uterus needs to be in your centre . . and if now missing where she was is paramount to be undone ..
Adhesions/scars/distressed bodies can be taken back to their original settings . .

Expect to see me initially intensively: you have taken ages to get to where you are here – not happy . . .


Do expect ‘miracles’.
After working with a sense of humour and intending to NOT take “can’t” for an answer – I expect them before you leave me – to at least feel so much lighter and freer! (And your pain free/substantially reduced).

Structural especially – that back no one can fix?
Probably your misplaced uterus – even if she is gone – the ligaments and meridians hold the memories. .
YOUR miracles  are waiting – we just need to set them in motion for you.
Happens all day in my clinic . .

What you may expect – so many do . .

Often there are sensible solutions for the problems no-one else has been able to find answers for/’fix’

Perhaps we just need to take out what was not supposed to be there, and put more in of what should.

Steps: ALIGN

Let’s start with Structure determines function:

and get away from the ongoing ‘work’ it seems to be to keep your body aligned.
invest in your health and future . .

Get your circulation going again – then there will be no pain .
Clean out what is not supposed to be in your body:

Often it is as simple as having more of what nourishes us on board and less of what does not.

More exercise and warmth – and no ice – ever!!!!

Why no ice?

It stops the circulation – which needs to be BETTER when in pain to get the oxygen and blood there to heal – and the rubbish away fast. See more here

Told you have fibromyalgia?
Fix why here


Often health return and comfort is as simple as working on old scars.
This may seem a strange idea. Meridians – lies of flow – and the adhesions that glue you up
You may know you hate being touched there. . .. or that you haven’t felt the same since . . . or that the scar is actually a problem.

Why not come and get it aligned with your energy again?

Meridians (lines) of energy traverse the body – and when these are interfered with – through accidents and operations – often function and of course local feeling is altered.
