My 1st blog for Gail’s Holistic Therapies.
Hello and welcome to my first blog. My name Is Gail Williams and I am the owner and practitioner of Gail’s Holistic Therapies. My brand new therapy room is opening in Rothley, Leicestershire. I am a trained Nurse/Midwife of many years, but it was when I was struggling with my health issues that I tried acupuncture and craniotomy sacral therapy. I was so inspired on how quickly I responded to the treatments that I made a decision to train in holistic therapies myself. Quite frankly I was hooked!
I started my training with Korean Hand Therapy (KHT) tutored by Dr Jong Baik of Darlington. Besides being an educator of Traditional East Asian Medicine himself, Jong has for many years successfully used KHT to treat patients at the local hospice to cope with varying problems related to their cancer treatment. In KHT the hand reflects the body as a micro system both on the front and back of the hand. One of the ways to treat is to use the corresponding points on the hand which allows the practitioner to treat acute and chronic pain etc either with micro acupuncture or non invasive press pellets and magnets. This gentle and effective treatment tonifies or reduces symptoms to allow the body to rebalance and restore health.
I have continued to learn more holistic healing techniques with Jong plus other tutors around the country. Having now trained in varying modes of healing it now affords me the opportunity to offers clients a host of different modalities of Traditional East Asian Medicine such as Body acupuncture, Korean Hand Therapy, Auricular therapy, cupping plus other methods dependant on the health problems clients are struggling to deal with.
All these methods of healing used are hundreds of years old and are well established treatments in their own right however they can also be used together for greater healing effect. Furthermore the treatments sit comfortably along side our current forms of westernised medicine. Once some treatments have been established then clients are encouraged carry on their healing in the home situation To build on the restoring and rebalancing of their own health and well-being.
Many of the aforementioned treatments could be used successfully on our children both newborn, through toddler years to young teenagers. However a form of acupuncture dating back to the 17 th century was designed specifically for children by the Japanese called Shonashin. Translation is literally (children’s needle).
Shon=child, an=little, shin=needle.
In September 2016 I was lucky enough to secure a training place in London to train in Shonashin with Thomas Wernike. Thomas is a licensed GP and one of the leading authorities of Shonashin. He is also a member of the society of Japanese Acupunturists. He developed a course which practitioners such as myself could develop the appropriate skills required to practice the art of Shonashin in our own practice. So I am super excited to start using this gentle and unique way of healing for newborn babies that may have developed problems from birth onwards i.e. Delayed feeding issues, colic, sleep patterns etc, through to the developing toddler associated problems such as bed wetting, sleep problems etc. Beyond to the early teenage years. These could be emotional or physical issues or both.
Whatever physical or emotional health challenges family and friends are facing, one or more of these healing methods offered could bring a sense restoration and health rebalance. Everybody deserves to feel well and happy As we know that modern life is stressful and takes its toll on our health and wellbeing. So even if you just want a bit of pampering and me time try some cosmetic rejuvenation with Gua Sha and facial massage with shoulder and neck cupping for a pick me up, or restore and rebalance acute or chronic issues please get in touch. Do not struggle.
