Phil Baxter   Adv.Dip Health Sci Acu, Post Grad Cert Manaka, Post Grad Cert. Toyohari (Japan)

A pioneer in his field Phil has developed his own system of diagnoses and therapeutic techniques that combines ancient knowledge and modern technology. Phil uses a variety of techniques to listen, acknowledge and diagnose the hidden realms of your body. He uses a refined and energetic method of acupuncture for relieving pain and relaxing the mind, combined with hands on cranial and visceral therapy which will take you to a new place that soothes, recharges, stimulates and supports the body to heal.

He has a special interest in autoimmune, poly-myalgia, endometriosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.

What to expect:

Letting the body speak via the pulse and the brain, Phil’s hands-on diagnosis will amaze you with its accuracy and introduce you to a new perspective on your difficult or highly complex medical case. Combining contact needling (a kind of painless acupuncture) with hands on structural work, and the option of herbal prescription, you can expect a calming comprehensive assessment and treatment which is created through feedback from your own body.

Who is acupuncture good for?

Sickness creates sensitivity, long illness or deep sickness creates hypersensitivity. Phil manages hypersensitivity with care focussed integrating sessions to address issues such as:

  • Migraine & headache pain

  • Neuralgia & nerve pain

  • Trauma and PTSD responses

  • Gynaecology, fertility, obstetrics, menopause

  • Lung & rib problems, infections, asthma, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, COPD

  • Digestive pain & discomfort

Phil Baxter has 20 years’ experience in supporting humans to heal, in a relaxing gentle way. He is internationally trained, having handpicked a series of skills from master healers all over the world and has packaged them for you in an efficient set of protocols. Phil believes that the moment we start to listen to each other, we begin to heal.

Josh Leishman   B Hth Sc (Acupuncture)

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have vast amounts of clinical research world-wide, which helps lay a foundation for a diagnostic and treatment model, yielding very satisfying patient outcomes and clinical results. Traditional Chinese Medicine may be used as a stand-alone modality or in combination with modern medicine to help improve prognosis and enhance health.

Joshua has a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture and studied classical East Asian Medicine in Japan for three years and has been in full time practice for more than twenty years. Joshua continued to study both at home and in China, and researched the best application of this medicine to help his patients. 

Joshua has experience using Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in patients with the following conditions:

  • Muscle and nerve pain or dysfunction (back pain, joint pain, neuralgia)

  • Women’s health issues (menstrual, fertility, pregnancy and postpartum, breastfeeding, polycystic ovarian disease, mastitis, pelvic inflammatory disease)

  • Metabolic disorders (hashimoto thyroiditis, diabetes, thyroid and endocrine disorder)

  • Digestive Disease (crohns, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, constipation)

  • Respiratory disease (bronchiectasis, emphysema, chronic or acute bronchitis, asthma)

  • Infectious disease (respiratory infection, cold and flu, cystitis, sinusitis)

  • Men’s issues (prostatitis, prostatic hyperplasia, infertility)

What does an acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine appointment consist of?

Diagnosis relies on questioning, observation, pulse and abdominal palpation. Tests and diagnosis from other modalities are also considered. Treatment consists of fine painless superficially inserted needles into special loci on the body surface, tender points, knots, and reactive areas.  Moxibustion is a the thermal stimulus of acupuncture points to relieve pain and promote healing. Massage and cupping can also be used during a normal session.

Josh treats people with all disorders, acute or chronic, in combination with pharmaceutical or other modalities and believes acupuncture can assist most cases.
