I work differently
into a hands on approach – expect totally not what you have felt from others.
Could and does start with pulling out what is blocking your healing.
Not ‘diagnosing’ and not doing what has already been tried on you.’
Always being an outlier – a free thinker – who wants to get to the bottom of whatever .
Decades of thoughtful hands on natural health care service in and around Brisbane and after over 38 years of teaching and designing courses to help others work better on bodies – mainly in acupuncture mentoring – I have discovered that heartful hands work best. The result is Heather’s Gentling Way.
Honed my skills in my over 4 decades (first acupuncture clinic in Brisbane city opened in 1979) – into an amalgam of natural health care /wise woman advice and common sense. See everything through the acupuncture model. Whilst acupuncture/Oriental medicine has been my main focus, ways to assist you will differ, possibly each time you come in – you may get a very different perspective on whatever it is that you wish help with.
hanging what you are doing will change what you have.
Most of your time is about YOU living YOUR life
What can you do to alter what will then change what is happening to your body?
I have been an acupuncture consultant for 40+years
mostly in Brisbane. Co designed, co wrote and co taught the 1981 acupuncture course
Needles may be only a small part of the session. I have discovered many easy, safe and simple ways that others may not use. It may mean it may not even be needles – but cupping or moxa, or vibrational tools – all which work brilliantly to allow healing for you.
The energy model of acupuncture is not just about the insertion of needles – what is also needed is changing what you are doing in your daily life. Not just what you do but how you do it. This means that there are myriad ways to restore perfection for you.
When seeing me, I will use a variety of different ways to move the stuck parts of you out of previous congestion and stagnation and back into working order.
What to expect?. .
What usually drives people to seek help
PAIN – On any level.
Often it is the whole life that hurts . . . when this is the case possibly having a life overhaul is what is needed – and usually this starts with CHANGE
PAIN is due to lack of circulation – possibly you are lacking in vitality to push all the blood/energy/spirit along .
It may well be just that the area needs massage.s.
Deep vein thrombosis, compartment syndrome, degeneration due to diabetes, peripheral neuropathy from all sources – even Reynard’s syndrome – all can be worked with at home and with someone who shares your passion for getting your body back on track.
Different choices in life mean very different life expressions . .
Maybe it is a deep soul centred distress about something that really bothers you – and that you can’t let go . . .
Possibly an old accident/incident is still creating echoes for you?
Whilst the body may be pulled out of alignment – and you may choose to spend time and money at the physio/chiropractor/osteopath/massage therapist – often it is the inner angst that sets this up.
It goes out AGAIN .
Sometimes it is also a deep inner weariness – and lack of oomph – as though more stuffing needs to be applied – losing yourself in too much work/trying too hard to get all things done . . . Have you found that regardless of the great sessions – your body all seizes up again sooner than you would like? Possibly you need a more general approach – and a far more profound one is often to be found through using a less mechanical approach.
Possibly it is time to get a fresh look at what you think is ‘sorted’ . . .
A major concern – especially if you have recently had a baby – or have used ice to stop sensation
Treating problem areas with ice
…Temporary relief but creates chronic problems
Is it that you have followed directions and used ICE to stop yourself feeling pain?
This is short term fix – but stops the circulation of blood and lymph and causes LONG term and very difficult to shift with long term loss of function and more pain . . . a very common error that leads to more misery – the application of cold in any form – especially inside you with iced drinks and foods – it all only makes your body work harder to try to get rid of the loss of its own energy from having to work AGAINST the cold. This cold invasion stays there forever – to waste what you naturally have.
To find out more – search for cold
Get rid of the cold blocking normal
This means that often it may be that you wander out feeling FANTASTIC and there has just been a cup on your belly, – and so much LESS pain or distress than when you arrived . .
All sessions have a touch therapy component. Diet and supplements will always be covered as what we take in to fuel ourselves often is the cause of why we feel we are not coping so well.
Do come in
See what we can achieve together to out you back to perfect again.
