With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus sweeping accross the world, I have drafted a new policy for use at my clinic, the Quan Yin Healing Centre.
I am committed to providing a safe environment for all of our practitioners and patients, as we remain open to provide holistic support to you in these troubling times.
I am sharing the policy below so that you can see exactly what we are putting in place, and will share more information soon.
Lets talk about the colour of your food. And no, I'm not talking about those crazy artificial colours and dyes that are so prevelant these days - you are staying well away from those kinds of foods - aren't you?! I'm talking about the beautiful natural, vibrant colours of fresh whole foods. Did you know that in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, the colour of a food can be an indication of it's therapeutic value? Read on to learn more about how the energetics of food can be understood from this perspective, and why it's important to have a rainbow of colours on your plate.
The creative team at Bioconcepts have put together a new e-magazine for 2020 that is packed full of inspiring recipes, and have given permission for me to share it with you!

I just found out how to make infographics! It was fun :-)
Here is my very first one - just a simple one on how to reduce your cortisol levels. We all know too much cortisol is a sign of stress, and is not good for our health, so here are some basic things you can do to bring those levels down.
Enjoy, and look out for more of these colourful images in the future!
I have created a wonderful new group on Facebook for Blue Mountains locals who are interested in improving their health naturally in a supportive and fun environment.
Each week there will be a different theme, with mini-challenges, tips, recipes and inspiration covering all aspects of our health. The intention is to create a space where we can learn and grow together and cheer each other on!
There will be free gifts and exclusive giveaways inside the group. Already there is a 5-day Sugar Detox challenge for members, with a free downloadable success manual and a series of coaching emails to help you quit the sweet stuff!
There is an African saying that I have always loved: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together". If you are a local and would love to join us for the ride, you can do so here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2194244707548769/
It’s a stressful time right now with bushfires burning out of control over much of NSW, and surrounding the Blue Mountains and Sydney. On top of making your fire plan and being prepared, it is important to look after your your lung health, as well as your mental wellbeing.
The air quality in Sydney and the Blue Mountains has been hazardous for some time now with a lot of bushfire smoke in the air. It is the finer, microscopic particles in the smoke that cause the most concern, as they can get deep into the lungs and cause adverse health effects if not cleared effectively.
Read on for some tips on how to protect your lungs, and how to help your body detoxify from this pollution as efficiently as possible.
Tis the season for giving and I want to thank you for all your support this year by offering you a FREE gift....the Healthy Holiday Gift Guide. It's a little last minute, but better late than never!

You’ll find some unique ideas for:
Who knows....you might even find a few new “must-haves” for yourself! (I know my own Christmas list grew quite a lot researching this fun little E-book) ;-)

I hope this makes your holiday shopping a little easier this year. Don't forget I also offer gift vouchers at the clinic if you would like to give the gift of acupuncture.
If you have any questions, simply comment below and I’ll do my best to help.
With the holiday season well and truly underway, I wanted to share with you a fun and helpful resource that I have found, and have permission to share with you. It is an e-booklet that you can download - full of recipes, tips and information to help you keep to your health goals during the midst of festive frivolity. It's 32 pages long, so just the right length to be able to flip through when you have a few minutes, and bookmark a handful of recipes or ideas that you'd like to try these holidays. There are lots of great ones that I'll be giving a try!
I hope you enjoy it, and stay healthy and well during this busy period.
Happy holidays to you!
I am always striving to refine and improve my services, so that I can be the best practitioner that I can be. To this end I conduct yearly anonymous surveys, so that I can give my patients the chance to give me honest feedback that I can use to learn and grow.
I am always so grateful for everyone who takes the time to complete the survey and tell me what they think. This year I thought it might be nice to publish the results so that you can see them too.
You can see a quick summary here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/stories/SM-ZWCFP2F7/, or keep reading for a bit more detail and commentary, including how my results compare to other professionals in the health industry worldwide.
