Typical Session with Heather

Heather works differently

Having spent so much of the recent few years amalgamating her past experience

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 36 years of teaching and designing courses to help others work better on bodies – mainly in acupuncture mentoring – she has discovered that heartful hands work best.

The result is Heather’s Gentling Way.

Already Heather had honed her skills in her nearly 40 years (first acupuncture clinic in Brisbane city opened in 1979 – into an amalgam of natural health care /wise woman advice and common sense – as seen through the acupuncture model. Whilst acupuncture/Oriental medicine has been her 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. Changing 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?

Heather has been an acupuncture consultant for 39 years mostly in Brisbane

Always also using her hands . . .  Needles may be only a small part of the session. Heather from time to time goes off to international seminars to teach. This means to you that as she is at the cutting edge of trialing new and innovative approaches, she has 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 Heather she 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 usually drives people to seek help


PAINOn 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 – and there are two new eBook packages for this.

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.

Recently Heather has been researching what is happening to everyone’s essential energy – and to remove the cold that is stored within seems to be making the biggest chance for everyone – regardless of what they walk in wanting to change about themselves.  This is especially true for all who have used ice therapeutically – thinking it was the way to go – cold stops circulation – and this creates pain and long term problems.

To find out more – search for cold

FIRST STEP – 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, followed by the use of moxa – and so much LESS pain or distress than when you arrived . .

MOXA smells and when you walk into the clinic you may think I have been smoking funny cigarettes – it is just part of a good acupuncture session – to have the herbal penetration of the heating magic also working for you.

All acupuncture sessions have a massage component and 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.
