Let me clarify who I am.
I am Chanél.
I work as an energetic practitioner using Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities. With over 10 years of treating, I have developed my own style of treatment - which has a lot to do with how I read your body but also energy. Whether you’d benefit from better blood flow or a release of trauma via working on the tension in your fascia, I facilitate this alchemy in your body with my simple tools - my gua-sha spoon, esoteric acupuncture needles, flame cups and Chinese medicine herbal pills, specifically selected for you.
I love to transmute energetic blockages in the body. I also love to educate women about their menstrual cycles while encouraging them to be more in-tune with their physical body, as well as emotional body.
I believe in somatic healing. I believe that our physical body holds much of the trauma that our emotional body is suppressing.
I love that my treatments address the trinity of mind body and spirit.
I aim to empower and inspire my patients - to view their body as an ally, working for them, not against them. To listen to the messages it shares through its pain or discomfort. I hope to be an ally in helping you to reconnect to yourself, to become your own sovereign healer, honouring your body and what it needs to put you on to your highest path.
That is me and that is what I do.
Education: Graduated from Bachelor in Applied Science in 2011 with a double degree in Chinese Medicine and Human Biology from RMIT University. Also completed an internship in Nanjing, China in 2010.
Esoteric acupuncture helps return the body to parasympathetic mode, a.k.a a healthy equilibrium. This allows the body to perform its functions in a balanced and rhythmic manner.
It improves blood and energy circulation, which addresses any imbalances along the way - for example, dysmenorrhea.
Reduces inflammation and boosts the immune system.
Balances hormones by working on the hypothalmic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
Reduces pain by not only moving blockages in circulation, but also by stimulating endorphin release.
Mood disorders are also addressed by reducing stress hormones and stimulating feel-good neurotransmitters
ALCHEMISING BODY WORK
Trauma can be held in each individual cell of the body.
Accessing the body’s unique potential to heal itself through the healing modalities used in Chanel’s clinic may allow the patient to shed and move past what has been repressed but not yet expressed.
This allows for better quality and more clarity in one’s life.
GuaSha & CUPPING
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Like an inverse massage, cupping therapy pulls at the fascia to release tension and knots as well as help move old lymph. This can result in bruise-like marks, showing where there was a discrepancy in the circulation.
A feeling of “lightness” is generally felt afterwards, as well as better ROM and less tension and pain.
Cupping can also help move phlegm from the lungs when slid up and down the back.
Fire-cupping is used in Chanél’s clinic.
Utilising a selection of traditionally used herbal formulae in clinic to help address any health imbalance.
Food is also considered medicine in Traditional Chinese Medicine hence dietary advice will also be given regarding what best suits your constitution.
Supplements are also advised, hence its best to bring all recent blood tests in to clinic for a more comprehensive diagnosis.
