Treatments offered by Taoist Acupuncture Byron Bay:
Chinese Medicine is a complete system of health and healing, with a very long and rich history. Chinese Medicine treats the patient, not the disease. It has its own diagnostics, and terminology, that is used to understand complex physiological interactions and imbalances. Treatment focuses on restoring balance.
What is Qi (Chi)? It is Chinese for "life energy", and according to Chinese medical theory, it is the animating power that flows through all living things. A living being is filled with it. A dead person has no more Qi. A healthy person has more than one who is ill. However, more does not always mean healthy. Health implies that the Qi in our bodies is clear, rather than polluted and turbid, and flowing smoothly, like a stream, not blocked or stagnant.
Similar to blood vessels, Qi travels through the human body like rivers and streams. When there is pain or illness there is a blockage of these pathways. Acupuncture manipulates the circulation of Qi and Blood to restore balance. When a needle is inserted in the correct location there is an immediate effect. Acupuncture is like working on a circuit board. A location is often needled on the opposite side and away from the site of the problem. This can be likened to a switch on a wall, and light bulb on the ceiling. To turn the bulb on, you have to flick the correct switch.
In China, patients are treated 3 times per week, and the results are far more effective than the typical one time per week treatments offered in western countries. Acupuncture is medicine. If you only took medicine once per week would you expect an effective outcome?
RJ provides a detailed diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment plan, with an estimated timeframe, so you can achieve your goals for health and well being.
Consist primarily of plant material and are used together in formulas to correct imbalances associated with illness, disease, and pain. Each individual herb has a function, and when combined with other herbs in a formula they often have a synergistic effect of enhancing the healing function, guiding the herbs to the site of the problem, and detoxifying some herbs that would otherwise be too potent by themselves. The use of endangered species is illegal in Australia, and are not used or condoned by RJ.

Kinesiology, and Remedial & Relaxation Massage

Kinesiology is a very powerful, gentle, safe and effective modality which works holistically to bring your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of being into balance and alignment. She also provides an intuitive, flowing and firm massage using Remedial, Relaxation, Trigger Point and Energetic Techniques, incorporating ZhiNeng QiGong with body work. Katrina takes a holistic approach to bodywork and likes to explore the connection between body, mind, and spirit.
If you are feeling weighed down, stressed or in pain, would like to discover and release self-sabotaging beliefs. . . or simply would like to sink into a state of zen, book in for kinesiology or a nurturing and rejuvenating massage.
