Marianne Kornaat - Acupuncturist

Marianne holds a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture, she furthered her studies with an internship in Japan and there she gained specialised knowledge about a less invasive, less painful form of needling. Under the guidance of several well-known Japanese acupuncturists she enhanced her diagnostic skills of stagnation and blockages of energy flow (qi). She also familiarised herself with meridian therapy, moxibustion and palpation techniques, which she uses in her practice.

Marianne Kornaat, a Dutch/Australian national was born in Hong Kong, where she spent her childhood emerged in Chinese culture. As an adult she lived in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. For the past 17 years she has settled in Perth. 

Prior to joining The Healing rooms, she worked in a Health clinic in Joondalup for four years. She has treated young people with trauma under the supervision of physicians in the trauma and spinal ward at Shenton Park Rehabilitation Centre and currently lectures acupuncture at the Endeavour College of Natural Medicine.

Marianne has also studied cranial sacral therapy and can offer this therapy with acupressure (needle free acupuncture) for people who are scared of needles.

Overlooking Positive Points [...]

by Karen Chin.

Whatever you focus on is generally what you see in life!

Your Best Interests at Heart

by Jen Taylor.

What is it that bothers you?  A problem or issue that could really be worthy of attention.  Something which feels annoying or is even more compelling and having a destructive effect on your health or relationships?  Perhaps it comes as a quiet whisper or a deeper nagging feeling?  Have you been tucking it away, seeing if it could magically disappear?  Hoping that tomorrow will be the day and yet, as each day evolves, the problem and the discomfort is still there.

Stop Running & Do Some [...]

By Reinette Nel.

So, you are driving along in your car, when suddenly you hear a clickety-clack noise.  Or maybe that noise has been there for a while, but today, because it’s cold, it’s a bit louder and more insistent.  What do you do?

Do you ignore it or do you decide that it’s time you ask a mechanic to look at it?  Maybe he can tell you not to worry, or maybe your car just needs oil and he can quickly do it for you?  What will happen if you keep ignoring it and keep on driving, day after day, after day?  Of course it will break down and we both know it will most likely happen at the most inconvenient time.  The day you have your interview for that job that you really, really want!  Or maybe even on your wedding day or Year 12 exam!  No, you know it’s best to let someone have a look and fix it now, rather than wait and then you have to fork out even more money and you might be without a car for a week or two.

The Health of the World

by Dr Jenna

In June I was able to attend an International Integrated Medical Conference in Germany, it was an amazing conference and I felt very inspired by what was shared. There were practitioners form all over the world and all types of modalities. We had presentations from the UN, PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) and the European Union to name a few. Countries presented how they were working to bring integrative health into their health systems. There were great success stories from Brazil, Germany, Switzerland and even Britain and there were only a few of us from New Zealand and Australia, I was able to present a post about how The Healing Rooms integrates health care.

Winter

By Marianne Kornaat.

Bears in winter go into a cave to hibernate but for us in Australia we don’t do quite the same. According to Chinese medicine, winter is a time of hibernation even if it may be in a different sense of not entering a cave but being more aware of stillness and quiet time. The Chinese say in winter one must go early to bed and rise up late - it makes sense - in winter it’s cold and dark so who really wants to get up in the morning?
