Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Last weekend I attended a workshop to learn new skills in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). I am looking forward to integrating it into my current treatments and building up to doing focused MLD treatments.

It is a great way to ease swelling, fluid retention, and improve the function of the immune system. Research shows that it can be used post operatively (in the hospital recovery room) to ease swelling, discomfort and speed up the healing process. It is great after knee arthroscopies and other similar surgeries. MLD can really help recovery after a cesarean section when so many lymph vessels have been cut.

Lymphademia can be eased and lymph flow sometimes redirected back into the system, bypassing scar tissue and lymph gland removal.

Call the clinic to book in to see how MLD can help you. 08 8333 3455


Soothe yourself at home

I have a new product on offer that I am excited about, it is a LED near infared and Red light belt.

Near infrared or low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) is the medical use of near infrared light technology to penetrate the electromagnetic radiation deep into the human body and promote the body’s natural healing processes. Known as photobiomodulation, it is the use of low levels of visible or near infrared light for delivering energy to the cells. It has been proved effective in hundreds of studies for reducing pain, inflammation and oedema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing tissue damage. The healing-promoting qualities have been known for almost forty years, since the invention of lasers, and is 100% natural and has no known adverse side effects.

Near infrared light is in the range of 700nm – 1400nm on the electromagnetic spectrum and has wavelengths that are longer than those of visible light, meaning that humans can’t see it. It has been heralded as an innovative and non-invasive therapeutic approach for the treatment of many health conditions.

Mad March is over

Another mad march is over, the Adelaide Festival, Fringe, Womadelaide and the Adelaide 500 all had successful attendances. This is great for Adelaide and our community. If you are looking for something to provide ongoing support for your friends and family what better way than hands on healing. Quantum-Touch is a great way to show you care both for people you can touch and for those further away.

You may be aware of Quantum-Touch as a hands on healing techniques and watched some of the online videos. Now is the time to come and learn it at a weekend workshop.

October Workshop completed

The Quantum-Touch workshop was completed last weekend. It was successful and the students got a lot out of it.

Nada was a great venue and I look forward to using them again.

The New Level 1 format was interesting for me to present and the booklet looks great! We ran energy into our tap water and it made a big difference, I normally use juice which was still significant but it really highlighted the Adelaide water flavour!

The next workshop will be in Feb 2018
