WHAT IS ACUGRAPH?

AcuGraph is a computerized tool that is able to measure, analyze and document the energetic health of your acupuncture meridians. Acugraph is used in a short examination by touching a probe to acupuncture points on your hands and feet.

WHAT ARE ACUPUNCTURE MERIDIANS?

Acupuncture meridians are simply electrical pathways in the body that conduct information between the various systems of your body. These pathways have been used therapeutically for thousands of years. Interference in these pathways can result in imbalances in the functioning of your bodies organ systems that may contribute to poor health conditions.

HOW CAN ACUGRAPH HELP ME?

The goal of meridian acupuncture therapy is to restore the proper flow of information along the meridians (electrical pathways).

When this is achieved you will feel the benefits translated into improved health and wellbeing.

Acugraph allows us to measure and analyze how well each meridian is functioning. With this information, we can make more informed decisions on targeting the treatment to get the best outcome in the shortest possible time. We can also measure your progress by comparing each analysis.

If you would like more information on how acugraph can help you with improved health and wellbeing then please contact us at TasWellbeing and talk to Mark Hudson

THE BEST HEAT FOR YOUR HEALTH.

Tas Wellbeing offers the ultimate infrared experience with the Physiotherm sauna.  Its innovative principle of using lava sand in the radiator filaments allows the heat to be applied very gently, efficiently and safely.

Heat is directly related to well being and health – something humans have always known instinctively.  No one likes to feel cold and, whenever it is cold, we automatically look for a source of heat. Heat feels good and also contributes to emotional well being.

In addition, heat can relax muscles and alleviate pain.

Regular whole-body heat sessions in the infrared sauna are a valued part of our health programmes for a number of illnesses and are used as meaningful preventive therapy.Sauna_Lady1

SCENAR THERAPY

Scenar-machine-on-womans-back-e1366336751193This amazing device, designed by Russian Scientists for use in space missions, is an intelligent electronic acupuncture without the needles.

It stimulates the body to heal itself and is a remarkable treatment for many common ailments and injuries. This has proven to be very popular.

“SCENAR works by stimulating the brain with a constantly varying signal that causes it to instruct the nervous system to generate Neuropeptides, the key biochemicals needed by your body to heal itself.

Neuropeptides may be considered as our body’s own internal pharmacy.body-with-skeleton-view-150x150

In many cases of bodily imbalance or injury, the brain tends to become habituated to a disease or injury rather than aggressively generating the correct neuropeptides and electrical signals needed to effect a complete recovery. The communication system between the brain and the affected body part can break down and this gradually becomes accepted by the brain as being “Normal”.

Girl-running-on-beach-150x150Because of its unique, computer controlled biofeedback capabilities and ability to stimulate the Neuropeptide generating C – Fibers of the nervous system, the SCENAR constantly achieves results that amaze people all over the world” ~ from the RITM SCENAR website.

If you would like to discuss how SCENAR therapy may be of benefit to you, please contact us today.

When can SCENAR be used?

SCENAR therapy is ideally suitable for most pathological and functional disorders associated with injury, trauma or compromised health states.

It is particularly suited to the acute phase of injury or pathology when there is pain, dysfunction and inflammation.

In most chronic conditions it can be used as a highly effective stand-alone treatment or complementary to other therapy.

Why use SCENAR?

 SCENAR does more than just relieve pain!

  • Naturally speeds up the healing processes of the body;
  • Helps to rapidly restore function following injury or surgery;
  • Reduces the need for common pain relief and anti-inflammatory medications;
  • Accelerates recovery from all skeletal and soft tissue injuries;
  • Improves and supports health and wellbeing;
  • Minimizes repeat therapy sessions;
  • Sustained long-lasting benefits for most conditions.

NATUROPATHY

WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?

Naturopathy is a system of medicine that focuses on prevention and the use of natural methods to achieve the highest possible level of health for the individual.

Naturopathy employs such approaches as nutritional therapy, natural diet, homeopathy, herbal medicine and lifestyle advice.

These natural therapies now have a substantial body of scientific data behind them that supports their effectiveness and use.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN NATUROPATHY TREAT?

This commonly asked question stems from the concept that your symptoms are “the condition” that needs to be treated. The condition or disease only describes your symptom/s!

Treating the symptom only is akin to turning up the tap on the garden hose because the pressure is low when in fact the hose has a kink in it that needs correcting!

In naturopathy we are looking for what is causing your symptoms and why you are continuing to manifest those symptoms.

So to answer the question, naturopathy treats any imbalance in the body that manifests as a dis-ease symptom

WHY VISIT A NATUROPATH?

A number of years ago I had the privilege of practicing natural medicine from a medical centre just out of Hobart.

During that period of time I had the opportunity to converse with a number of GPs’ at the centre about various patient issues and swap “notes”.

What really struck me was the number of people seeking medical care from well meaning medical doctors for completely preventable illnesses and conditions.

Our medical system is first rate when it comes to identifying the name of the disease or condition that is causing your symptoms.

Unfortunately there is a significant gap when it comes to identifying and treating the causative factors that led to the onset of the disease or condition.

It takes only a very casual look at the health statistics to see that the incidence of chronic disease and poor health is on the increase in developed countries like ours.

Many of the common health challenges facing our community are entirely preventable and treatable with simple non-invasive measures.

These measures are most often as simple as feeding our bodies the correct fuel and correcting the deficiencies or excesses.

The results of these simple corrections often amaze our clients.

So visiting a naturopath could be your first positive step towards a much healthier life!

WHAT DOES A CONSULTATION INVOLVE?

We use a 3-step procedure for all of our new naturopathic clients. This procedure ensures that we cover all of the necessary basics and gives you an accurate incite into the underlying causes of your unique health challenge.

STEP 1

The initial consult of approximately 1 hour is all about listening to you. We need to gather all of the relevant details about your health history and any other information that can help us with the ‘detective’ work of uncovering the real issues behind your health challenge.

We may also make some initial recommendations to get you started on the journey.

STEP 2

We now need to see what is happening to cause your symptoms.

We conduct 3 basic tests for step 2:

RBTI ANALYSIS

The Reams Biologic Theory of Ionization is a unique series of tests carried out on specimens of urine and saliva. The laboratory tests are made with scientific measuring equipment. The information gained from these tests enables us to monitor very complex body functions. A full report is then created for you that will explain each section of the test and what can be done to help re-balance the body.

BIO IMPEDANCE ANALYSIS

This is a science that was originally developed for monitoring patients after surgery in hospitals. A small electrical device is connected to your hands and feet. The device then passes a safe and painless low voltage current through your body.

This provides us with valuable data such as muscle and fat mass, cell hydration and cell health.

It also enables us to accurately monitor your progress towards better health.

INDICANS TESTING

The urinary indicans test is a screening tool that we use to test for faulty breakdown of protein in the gastro-intestinal tract.   A positive test will reflect a state of excess unbeneficial bacteria in the gut due to faulty protein digestion.

We may also recommend the following tests depending on the findings from step 1.

FOOD ALLERGY TESTING

Food allergies and sensitivities can be a major impediment to wellbeing.

If a food allergy or sensitivity is suspected we will recommend that a hair sample be sent away for testing.

You will then be tested for 400 local foods, various household and personal care products.

This tells us exactly what you can eat so that you are feeding your body correctly.

Feeding your body correctly greatly enhances your immune system and allows your body to repair itself more efficiently.

CANDIDA TEST

Candida is a yeast species that can commonly cause problems for those with an overgrowth in their body.

If candidiasis is suspected we will recommend a test that is performed in the clinic so that we can treat the overgrowth.

MEDICAL TESTING

We may recommend a visit to your GP for further medical testing if required.

STEP 3

This visit is to review the test results and present you with a proposal for a treatment strategy.

We will discuss some initial recommendations regarding diet, lifestyle or supplements that are needed to start you on the road to better energy and improved wellbeing.

MASSAGE

REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY AT TASWELLBEING

Massage therapy describes many different techniques of soft tissue manipulation ranging from relaxing and soothing to deep and therapeutic.

At TasWellbeing we specialise in the deep and therapeutic techniques because of the wide range of benefits for muscular, nervous system and skeletal issues.

Massage therapy is widely acclaimed as beneficial for sporting injuries, arthritis, whip lash, scoliosis, sciatica, repetitive strain injury, post injury and post surgical rehabilitation as well as back and neck pain.

Professionally applied deep tissue therapy can also benefit the central nervous system by causing a relaxation response.  It is the perfect treatment for those suffering from nervous tension, anxiety and poor sleep.

 

At TasWellbeing our therapist Mark Hudson has a wealth of experience treating these issues.

Mark is able to tailor a treatment to suit your individual needs.
