Marianne Kornaat - Acupuncturist

Marianne holds a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture, she furthered her studies with an internship in Japan and there she gained specialised knowledge about a less invasive, less painful form of needling. Under the guidance of several well-known Japanese acupuncturists she enhanced her diagnostic skills of stagnation and blockages of energy flow (qi). She also familiarised herself with meridian therapy, moxibustion and palpation techniques, which she uses in her practice.

Marianne Kornaat, a Dutch/Australian national was born in Hong Kong, where she spent her childhood emerged in Chinese culture. As an adult she lived in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. For the past 17 years she has settled in Perth. 

Prior to joining The Healing rooms, she worked in a Health clinic in Joondalup for four years. She has treated young people with trauma under the supervision of physicians in the trauma and spinal ward at Shenton Park Rehabilitation Centre and currently lectures acupuncture at the Endeavour College of Natural Medicine.

Marianne has also studied cranial sacral therapy and can offer this therapy with acupressure (needle free acupuncture) for people who are scared of needles.

Chinese Wisdom for the Seasons

By Marianne Kornaat.

We probably all have heard that we should try to eat locally and that it is better to eat foods that are in season.  I would like to share a little part of Chinese wisdom that can hopefully help you understand why it is so important to align with the seasons.

The Chinese talk about the five elements and the five seasons, every season is linked to a specific organ and a specific flavour.  The sour flavour is linked to the liver and linked to spring, the bitter flavour is linked to the heart and summer, the pungent taste is linked to the lungs and autumn, and the salty taste is linked to our kidneys and to winter.  The fifth season is the season in between seasons and is linked to earth and our digestive system.  Each flavour specifically supports an organ, so if your liver needs attention it is best addressed in the spring and if your heart is frail or you suffer from depression or nervousness, summer is the time to help care for your heart.  Since we are in summer we will focus on that.

Love Meditation

by Jen Taylor.

The thing I enjoy most about meditation isn’t just the practice of creating more stilling of the mind but also the awareness of bringing mindfulness into everyday activities.  In fact my experience of having to sit for some time has been somewhat challenging, many I have spoken with also share this inner conflict.  With a preference for the body and mind to be more active, I have at times felt challenged by the idea of trying to still the mind.  From patience and consistency though, I have found that the benefits are profound and now too have proven scientific results.

Welcome to the World of [...]

by Debbie Bates.

My first experience of this profound complementary therapy was in 1999, I was pleasantly surprised as I felt a deep sense of relaxation moving through my body and afterwards, a state of calm as I moved back out into the world.  I was fascinated that points on the feet were connected to different parts of my body and through the session, felt stress falling away from my neck and shoulders.  It was after this session that I decided to undertake a practitioner’s course and while studying, my family and friends benefited as I practiced on them and that helped lessen their stress also - a win/win.

Every Body Loves Bowen

by Jen Taylor.

I meet many clients who come in to find some relief from the pain patterns & injuries which may be interrupting their daily routine.  It is common in our western culture to be used to needing a quick fix to be able to carry on with life.  It seems as a society we are not so keen at accepting the pain and addressing any feelings that may be underneath the pain.  There is such a drive to ignore pain or to reach for some kind of pain relief to be able to carry on with the daily routine.  Certainly, sometimes this is a necessary choice however, pain can be a wonderful signal in the body to help us to look at and address perhaps a wider set of problems.  The body is sending a message to look a bit closer and pay attention, if one chooses. 

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.
