What to do for Foot spurs, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis…

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

It’s amazing to me how many people ring me on 4BC to ask about foot spurs, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis…  It seems to be a very important, painful, and debilitating issue for many people in Australia.

Firstly, we need good connective tissue support so that the foot can heal and repair properly.  Nutrients that can be used are things like silica, magnesium, calcium…  Products that support connective tissue support:  Metagenics Arthrex; BioCeuticals Silica liquid; Metagenics Cartrin; Blackmores SCF; Metagenics Glucosamine Intensive Care.

Secondly, ensure weight is optimal…  carrying excess weight puts huge amounts of pressure on the feet, and they will of course, be inflamed over time.  Foot spurs, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis and natural side-effects of long term weight issues.  See us about our fat loss programme which has a fantastic success rate and saves you money long term.

Thirdly, structural balancing can be very beneficial:  in our clinic we do:

  • remedial massage to increase blood supply to the extremities
  • structural kinesiology to balance hips, knees, ankles, feet
  • foot manipulation to ensure all the bones of the feet are in correct positions
  • frequency specific microcurrent to help to break down calcification in the joints

So, there really is plenty of help for heel spurs, foot spurs and plantar fasciitis.  Call us today to book your appointment!

Remedial Massage in Wynnum, Brisbane. Benefits of Regular Remedial Massage

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Current Bonus:  30% off your initial massage – mention this website!!  Our beautiful natural therapies clinic in Wynnum, Brisbane, has a fantastic remedial massage team.  We also have Reiki sessions available with Gabby Graham.

Remedial Massage is very different today than it was 30 years ago.  Today is becoming more and more recognised as a way of repairing muscles and tendons:  these can be damaged through many problems in daily life – the product of overuse, trauma or bad posture.

Remedial massage involves a number of applied techniques involving deep pressure, trigger points released and longitudinal strokes on shortened and tight muscles to allow proper function and restore muscle strength.

Remedial Massage Technique: It uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin using a lubricating medium, usually oil, which ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder and mobilisation of the joint are deeply penetrated. Passive stretching moves are also used.

Benefits of Remedial Massage

Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.

Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with Remedial Massage include Fibrositis, Spondylitis, Arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, Whiplash, muscular atrophy, sports and dancing injuries.

Ring and ask about our specials – we often have great bonuses available for first time clients!

Fixing Arthritis with Naturopathy & Frequency Specific Microcurrent: Wynnum, Brisbane!

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Have you been worried about your arthritis or the drugs you need to take to reduce your pain?  We can help, right here in our beautiful professional clinic in Wynnum, Brisbane!  With our Chronic Pain Programme you can use simple naturopathic treatments such as natural pain products and Frequency Specific Microcurrent to get you on your way!

Normal medical tests often miss out on some basic information that can really create an environment in your body where arthritis will just continue. Our naturopathic tests such as live blood analysis, our urine and blood tests and our cellular analysis (VLA) give loads of information that we can then work on with you to improve!

  1. how acidic are you???  We often see people 200 x more acidic then they should be, that means the minerals (calcium & magnesium) are being pulled from your bones, making them more brittle;
  2. how hydrated are you?  The less hydrated the more acidic and inflamed your body is – see point 1!!
  3. where is your BMI?  If your body mass index is over 30 (20% higher than perfect weight), the body is an inflammatory, stress creating, insulin resistant machine.  That means that you’ll be more inflamed and acidic…

Are you seeing a pattern here?  Therefore we work on, you guessed it, inflammation and acidity!!!  Our frequency specific microcurrent machine helps to target specific areas of the body and reduces inflammation such as joints, tendons, bursa, joints, vertabra etc.

Talk to us today, and fix your arthritis!  In our Chronic Pain Programme (payment plan) you also get other benefits such as:

  • 1/2 price massage therapies
  • 1/2 price kinesiology sessions
  • 1/2 price infrared saunas
  • 1/2 price allergy testing and treatments

Stem Enhance & Natural Cellular Defence for Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinsons Disease

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Is your life, or the life of a loved one, hampered by chronic auto-immune conditions?

At New Leaf Natural Therapies we have had great success with auto-immune diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.  Hope truly is out there if you have these, or other auto-immune disorders such as fibromyalgia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, hashimotos & Graves Disease and much more.  Our practitioners and team have a combined 60 years experience within the natural therapies industry, and plenty of experience with auto-immune diseases.

Interestingly, the experience our practitioners and I have had as newer, stronger and more effective supplementation is much available, has been even better.  We utilise detoxification products (auto-immune conditions are heavily linked with heavy metal toxicity) and products which increase the production of stem cells, products which balance the immune system (as auto-immunity is like having an ADHD immune system – overworking to attack specific cells in the body).

We provide the following tests for people with chronic auto-immune disease:

  1. live blood analysis: looking at immunity, anti-oxidant levels, invisible toxicity, sluggish or overactive immunity, essential fatty acid levels and more;
  2. acidity levels – the more acidic the body is the more risk of chronic disease, the more minerals are ‘pulled’ from the bones, nerves, muscles and brain;
  3. reasons for auto-immunity – gut issues such as leaky gut, helicobacter, candida, celiac disease, insulin resistance.  All of these conditions increase inflammation and toxicity levels in the gut, and the gut is home to over 70% of the immune system;
  4. BMI, fat mass & muscle mass readings with Cellular Analysis: if the BMI (body mass index) is over 30 then inflammation continues unabated in the body regardless of the amount of anti-inflammatories (natural or drug) are being taken, so working on the BMI is imperative.

So the treatment involves working on inflammation and acidity, the immune system, weight issues, toxicity levels, gut and liver health. Wow, can it be done???  It sure can, ask about our payment plans for saving you money on our programmes today!

Testimonial for Remedial Massage, Wynnum, with Cherice Day & Katherine Lynn

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Hi.  I’ve had massages with both Cherice Day and Katherine Lynn in the past few weeks in order to sort out (mainly) a lower back issue.  No surprise was that they found other areas needing work as well.  Cherice did Chinese cupping & remedial massage.  I found she could easily massage deeper after allowing the ‘cups’ to do their work.  I’ve also had a hot stone massage from Cherice in the past, which is just bliss!

The past few days I’ve had 2 massages with Katherine Lynn and she’s worked through much more than my lower back.  Katherine has used techniques to.  It feels that we’ll need to do more work on my lower back, although I’ve already felt quite a big improvement. loosen my shoulders, my neck and my back and hips

Focus on Remedial Massage: Cupping Techniques by Katherine Lynn & Cherice Day

Chinese Cupping Techniques:  by Katherine Lynn & Nathan Leach

What can Chinese Cupping Techniques be used for…

Respiratory Diseases: For chronic bronchitis and asthma

Digestive Diseases: For dysentery, early morning diarrhea, and acute and chronic gastritis

Pain Syndromes

· Shoulder blade

· Loins

· Head

· Soft tissue injury: treating local pressure pain points and area of swelling

Gynecological Disorders

· Infertility and irregular menstruation

· Leukorrhea

· Uterine cramps

Common cold

Insomnia

Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice where the cup is suctioned, applied to the skin, and the pressure in the cup is reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the skin and outer layers of the muscles are drawn up and into the cup. Sometimes the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is still active, causing pulling of the skin and muscle (gliding cupping).

This treatment has similarities to other massage techniques, such as the rapid skin pinching along the back. In that practice, the skin is pinched, sometimes at specific points (e.g., bladder meridian points), until a redness is generated. Cupping is applied by acupuncturists to certain acupuncture points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain (where the pain is deeper than the tissues to be pulled).

When the cups are moved along the surface of the skin, the treatment is similar to sand scraping, a folk remedy of southeast Asia which is often carried out by scraping the skin with a coin or other object with the intention of breaking up stagnation. Movement of the cups is a gentler technique than sand scraping, as a lubricant allows the cup to slide. Still, a certain amount of bruising is expected both from fixed position cupping (especially at the site of the cup rim) and with movement of the cups (up to 2 weeks of bruising should be expected after cupping massage techniques).

Traditional cupping, with use of heated cups, also has some similarity to moxibustion therapy. Heating of the cups was the method used to obtain suction: the hot air in the cups has a low density and, as the cups cool with the opening sealed by the skin, the pressure within the cups declines, sucking the skin into it. In this case, the cups are hot and have a stimulating effect something like that of burning moxa wool.
