Marianne Kornaat & Lydia Kowaleff - Acupuncturists

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.

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.

Sleep & Fatigue

Are you struggling with fatigue?

Tired all the time?

Feeling exhausted?  Well it doesn't need to be that way!

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.
