Acupuncture

Marianne Kornaat - Acupuncturist

Acupuncture is part of integral system of primary health care, known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has an uninterrupted history of development. Today acupuncture has shown to be not only effective, but is becoming an increasingly popular form of health care.

 The finest and highest quality needles are used in our clinic. Soft palpation methods are used to find the appropriate points and needling is done with utmost gentleness! Moxibustion, cupping, essential oils and a form of Chinese massage (An Mo Tuina) may also be used during your treatment. Both of these are non-invasive therapies which will give you a sensation of warmth whilst experiencing it, yet of invaluable help to remove blockages in your energy flow. Acupuncturists work with qi or vital energy, qi flows within a system of channels in our body called meridians. 

Meridians can become blocked due to stress, overwork, poor diet, environmental conditions and lifestyle choices. By finding the blockages, your acupuncturist is trained to restore the balance using needles to specific points in your body.

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.

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.

Make Decisions, Not Excuses

by Celia Leveridge.

Every decision I make is the right one for me ~ Louise Hay.

This is quite a feat to state that every decision I make is the right one for me.  What can we interpret from what Louise has said?

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?
