What is Healing?

To heal is to become whole. The words “healing” and “curing” are commonly used interchangeably, but their definitions are different. Curing is a restoration of health, an absence of symptoms, and a remedy of disease. It’s a return to a previous state of health. This is the aim of our health care system – to take you back to the state you were in before the symptoms or disease. Which, of course, was the very state of “dis-ease” you were in when the symptoms began (and may well have contributed

What to Expect From My Practice

Providing relief for people who present with symptoms, as outlined below, is fundamental to my practice. But most of all, I am interested in seeking and treating the underlying causes of their pain and discomfort. Network Chiropractic Care and Profound Tension Release remain as the effective basis of my practice. A yearning for greater creativity and expression is a constant experience for many people. Time and again, people express to me their frustration at not being free to be more constructive in their lives. A yearning for greater creativity and

Questioning Our Thoughts

Consider this: A thought is harmless unless we believe it. A belief is simply a thought that we’ve been attached to, often for years. It is not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Our stress is not due to the world around us, but what we believe about the world around us. When we believe negative thoughts - we suffer, and when we don’t believe those same thoughts - we don’t suffer. If something is “just a thought” then how much power does it actually

Be Aware of What You Feed the Field

We are all part of a vast web of connections – the field - that encompasses not only life on this planet but the solar system and beyond. While this has been understood for centuries in most cultures of the world, it is only just being accepted by modern science as it discovers methods of detecting and measuring the field. We all live in a field of energy that reflects back to us, not what we think in our minds, but what we feel in our hearts. It is now

Our Dance Between Stability and Movement

Our bodies communicate information from one area to another via the connective tissues, a continuum of fibres and cells, reacting to each other, passing messages in a process that is twenty times faster than the nervous system. This is an instant reactivity. Take the example of an insect flying onto your eyelash. The blinking of the eye is so fast it is beyond that which is mediated by the nervous system. Our Connective Tissues are essential to the dance between stability and movement – crucial in high performance, central in

How To Tell If You Inherited Emotional Trauma and How To Break the Pattern

Epigenetics is a change in our genetic activity without changing our genetic code. It is a process that happens throughout our lives and is normal to development. Chemical tags get attached to our genetic code, like bookmarks in the pages of a book, signalling to our bodies which genes to ignore and which to use. Our environment, from smoking and diet to pollution and war, can leave "epigenetic marks" on our DNA that could get passed on to subsequent generations. This is called epigenetic inheritance. Epigenetics With

Embracing the Darkness

The Tao doesn't take sides; it gives birth to both good and evil. --Tao Te Ching The darkness, the void, the space that the mind is terrified to enter, is the beginning of all life. It's the womb of being. Fall in love with it, and when you do, it will immediately be taken from you, as you witness the birth of light. The Tao doesn't take sides. It embraces both the darkness and the light. They're equal. The Master can't take sides. She's in love with reality, and reality

Heart Wisdom

“ Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.” ~ Miles Kington Qualities associated with wisdom include: a clear-eyed view of human nature and the human predicament, emotional resiliency, the ability to cope in the face of adversity, openness to other possibilities, forgiveness, humility, and a knack for learning from lifetime experiences. We can learn about wisdom from its qualities. It is difficult to have a succinct definition because wisdom is something that wise people live rather than think about.

Noticing the Space

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” ~ Victor Frankl: Man’s Search for Meaning What pushes your buttons? What is it about that annoying family member, friend or work colleague that has the ability to “get on your goat”? It is common for people who come to see me to be feeling stressed and having symptoms of this stress, such as neck and shoulder pain, headaches, anxiety and digestive

We Can Still Grow in Winter

Winter is the season of recovery and preparation. The cold draws us within ourselves and within our close social groups. We often find ourselves closed down by the cold, damp and dreary days. In this state we can choose to either find new depths of connection within; or wallow in our stories of how miserable we are. Winter encourages us to notice the subtleties in nature – the noble structure of bare trees, the shape of amassing clouds or the exquisite gleam of sunlight on the frosty ground. Be inspired
