How I use The Gentling Way in everyday practice

A sample case . . .


Most people come to see me once all other avenues are exhausted.
Over the decades I have worked out a system that always gets results.
I do NOT diagnosis – I listen and act.

The Gentling Way has evolved from my 40 years of being a hands-on energy acupuncturist.
The initial training (see more here) was with Dr van Buren’s notes and given to my class initially by George Kniepp who moved back to the Atherton Tablelands in mid 1977, and Dr John Velthiem (a chiropractor who became a very colourful character (larger than life) in Brisbane in the early 1980’s.

This all meant that I started life with hands on – and never stopped. The use of a Rolfing move came in handy – originally did all of the back and now only the area around the bra strap – this seems to be my signature release for anything.

Ingredients (nutrients) and flows (circulation)

Role of magnesium depletion and Stuck Liver Qi/Blood

A one to one correlation – but can’t take orally and expect to be well . .
Why not??

These moves are all in my Foundational Signature Systems. Mostly available online either free from my many sites, or through the eLotus Wisdom tube, or by taking one or many of my courses

  • (Stuck Liver Qi Release)
  • Opening the chest  
  • The lymphatic /prostatic drainage moves,
  • The sacral moxa fan
  • The pelvic opening
  • The flank gouging
  • The belly ’round and round’ works to assist the lymph to move – thus allowing space for the Qi to flow.

    Adding these all into the vibrational, respectful Reichian armour band melting and the use of breath and gentling techniques, along with all that I used in my 40 years of working in many capacities (via a naturopathic , soulfilled, heart aligned acupuncture model) with ‘hopeless’ cases – neurologically incapacitated, terminal cancer, AIDS prior to the medications becoming available, and all fertility/obstetric issues that got too hard . for mainstream.

How do we do it?
Go back to nature.
Help the body to heal itself.

Below is an example to demonstrate how an acupuncture consultant can easily combine all there is in my courses into their practice with ease, grace and passion – as it is so simple, so effective and so profoundly moving.
We work case by case. Day by day.
My continuing clinical research (lief experience) shows ..
We can always go deeper to where the person is really hurting – and once this is resolved. .
Magic may happen.

This is an example of using more than a telescope to experience a circus

Cristina was brought in by her partner of 1 year who had had his own amazing story arriving to see me.

  • She had not slept at all the night before.
  • Severe migraine – as usual
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Very very nervous.
  • History of life long (since she can remember ) terrible migraines

(I have in brackets which course this is found in)

P.O. (Pelvic Opening) LLI/LLII  (Living Ligaments I and II are hands-on taught.

NOTE – a lot of transdermal magnesium is placed on patients – as they are undergoing change AND they are offered water – pure – constantly – we need to flush away what we are loosening.

What would acupuncture have achieved?


I cannot think of a more rewarding way to use our training – in real service.

It does take self mastery and deep connection – not an academic look at life.
