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.

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.

Emotions & Psychological [...]

By Dr Elinor van Ommen.

“Am I too sensitive?” , “why can’t I move on from this?”… these are common questions I hear, and I often meet people who are in distress that relates to difficulty processing emotion.

The Joy of Learning to know [...]

by Jen Taylor.

What is your life purpose, what will you choose & what may be the benefits?

Who would you want to be remembered as, at the end of your life?

Where would you love to make a difference or contribution?

When could you allow yourself to follow your inner knowing and create more space to shine?

There will be many people, places, things which can seem insignificant but may also be alluring and oh so ready to jump in and take you off your path of wiser knowing.  There are many little ways these events can take you away from what may make your heart alight with joy.

Overlooking Positive Points [...]

by Karen Chin.

Have you ever noticed what you place your focus on?

Ever wondered how you can get so fixated on something that you can’t see an alternative solution?

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.
