**ACUPUNCTURE**

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine, single use sterile needles (on average 0.18mm thick) into specific locations on the body called acupoints. Acupuncture points are located along 12 main channels called meridians, which run vertically along the front and back of the body.

After conducting a comprehensive Chinese Medicine diagnosis, the practitioner will select acupuncture points on various points of the body to help restore and maintain your body’s natural balance. Acupuncture treatments are generally painless. The sensation associated with needle insertion is a dull ache which lasts for a millisecond, after which you will not feel any needle sensation. Needles are then retained for 10-30 minutes, during which time you will be allowed to relax, close your eyes, meditate or sleep while the acupuncture takes effect..

**HERBAL MEDICINE**

Chinese herbs are effective in treating a wide range of health conditions with little to no side effects. It is based on a rich body of knowledge developed over thousands of years of clinical practice. For almost any health condition your body can create, there is an herbal formula that is designed specifically to target that problem.

A prescription containing 5-20 will be tailored specifically for your health requirements. The term ‘herbs’ encompasses plant material, minerals and a small number of animal products. Herbal formulas can be prepared in several different forms and are generally taken morning & night.

Each person, condition and injury is unique so osteopathic treatments will vary from person to person.

Your osteopath will ask questions about your problem and symptoms. They may also ask about your medical history, any medications you are taking, as well as factors that may not appear to be directly related to your problem.

Your osteopath will conduct a full osteopathic examination and if necessary, clinical tests, this may involve diagnostic, orthopaedic or neurological tests, postural assessments and activities or exercises that will determine how best to manage your condition. The examination may include passive and active movements, such as the osteopath lifting your arms or legs.

Osteopathy takes a holistic approach to treatment, so your practitioner may look at other parts of your body, as well as the area that is troubling you. For example, if you have a sore knee, your osteopath may also look at your ankle, pelvis and back.

Osteopathy is a manual therapy, so hands-on treatment may include massage, stretching, repetitive movements, mobilisation and/or manipulation. Most osteopathic treatments are gentle and should not cause undue discomfort. If your injuries do require hands-on treatment of painful and tender areas, your osteopath will exercise care to make you as comfortable as possible.

Your osteopath may also provide education and advice to help you manage your condition between appointments. This may include giving you exercises to do at home or work.

Osteopaths treat more than you think. They focus on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulatory system, connective tissue and internal organs function as a whole body unit.

A visit to the osteopath does not require a referral. Osteopathy is covered by most private health funds and Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plans.

Osteopaths are registered providers for patients under the Transport Accident Commission, WorkCover and Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

CHILDREN'S NUTRITION

A Children’s Nutritionist can assist from pre-conception right up to teenagers. At each stage an infant/child/teen body requires different amounts of macronutrients and micronutrients. Their diet should consist of a variety of foods that contain a range of these nutrients in the purest form possible. A Children’s Nutritionist plans menus and meal plans, that incorporate a balanced diet supporting healthy nourishment and healthy body function. They also teach children and parents on healthy and mindful eating and basic nutrition.

Physically active and growing children require good nutrition to build a healthy and strong foundation to assist them through childhood and into adulthood. Many habits and knowledge towards food are shaped during their early years, which forms the basis for future eating habits and patterns.

HEALTH & WELLNESS COACHING

Health and wellness coaching take a holistic approach to healing the body, where connection of the mind, body and spirit occur. Clients are shown and walked through how to create long-term health and lifestyle changes. This is done through an understanding of wholefoods and how they build, feed and nourish healthy cells which then creates more vitality.

A health coach guides each client through their own personal journey into wellness with recipes, meal plans, mindfulness and ongoing support. This shows the client how to address and work through emotional eating in a kind and gentle approach without self-judgement. This will help to develop a healthy mindset of the body, along with creating a healthy lifestyle for themselves and their families.

CRYSTAL REIKI

Crystal reiki incorporates crystals with their energies and the energy from reiki in a healing. It allows body and mind healing in a safe and respected environment. Reiki is a peaceful practice that allows a deep healing within, clearing your mind and freeing your spirit. Reiki practitioners do not use their own energy in healing but that of the universal energy.
Understanding energy and the different kinds of energy that we encounter in everyday life is essential for a practitioner. This allows them to be able to empathise with clients and sense changes in their energy field. In reiki we allow the energy to move through the body to where the healing needs to occur, along with balancing 7 chakras.

Crystal Reiki is a safe practice and suitable for all ages. In a reiki session a client may feel a whole body calmness wash over them, just like being in a meditative space. They may also experience a warm or cool sensation, tingles and a static electricity feeling in the area I am working. Practitioners may practice with a hands on or hands off approach, however both ways are just as effective.

Reiki has some amazing benefits:

~ Improves sleep and quality of sleep.

~ Helps to balance emotions and ability to handle them.

~ Relieves muscle tension and soreness.

~ Eases joint pain and stiffness.

~ Helps to improve mental clarity and brain fog.

~ Balances chakras to create body harmony.

~ Helps move stuck energy and more….
