Stress is the leading cause of illness. What if you could learn an effective technique that will allow you to release any negative emotion in minutes? Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can be performed for work situations, worry over deadlines, pressure to perform, fatigue, pain, and in your personal life as well for relationships with family, social and work situations. Children can also learn EFT to help them with worries over exams, bullying, moving, making friends or feeling left out.

The Body Group is pleased to announce that Caroline Rhodes, Matrix Reimprinting & EFT Master Practitioner and Trainer, will be leading an EFT group session on overcoming work stress (details below)

Caroline Rhodes is the founder of the Hong Kong holistic clinic, The Body Group.  She qualified as a physiotherapist in 1985 and has spent the past 30 years working as a health care practitioner in the US and Hong Kong.  In addition, she has received accreditation in many traditional and complementary therapies, including:

  • Craniosacral Therapy to address the central nervous system and thereby all systems in the body.
  • Lymphatic Drainage to boost the immune system, which is essential for the healing of any chronic illness.
  • Trigger Point and Myofascial Release to assist the connective tissue to release old patterns and to reduce or eliminate pain.

Caroline has a twin sister, Gina Day, who is a Certified Chiropractic Assistant and who is also certified as a Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.  Prior to moving into the health field, Gina was an engineer in the aerospace industry for 21 years and she also obtained a BS in Business Management.  Both sisters share a passion for holistic health and believe that all pain, illness and chronic conditions stem from an imbalance in the body.  This could be in any one or a combination of the physical, biochemical or emotional aspects of each living organism.

Both Caroline and Gina are certified practitioners in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Matrix Reimprinting (MR), and Meta Health.  These modalities work quickly to find the root cause of illness, whether physical or mental, and bring about healing and balance.  They also work in a powerful way to release trauma and heal emotional wounds, including those caused by sexual assault, child abuse and accidents.  Clients have reported moving from fear, anxiety, depression and phobias to a state of confidence, optimism and wellbeing.

Caroline and Gina will be offering joint sessions for a limited period in January 2015.  Working simultaneously on a client, they can offer an extraordinary depth of intuitive healing, which they attribute to the fact that they are twins and often share the same insights.  In a typical session, Caroline will do body work on the client while Gina will work with EFT and MR.

Prior to treatment, an initial assessment will be carried out.  This Meta Health Analysis will address the physical, physiological and energetic bodies and will determine the specific modes of treatment that are appropriate.

Introduction to Kefir by Louise Buckley @ The Body Group
Jan 17 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mass produced food has meant many changes to the natural growing and distribution of foods, and this has largely changed the make-up, quality and accessibility of nutrients. Pasteurisation of milk is an example of this, but while this process has proved useful in increasing the shelf life of milk, other dairy products and juices, etc., unfortunately it also destroys some of the nutrients.

Fermentation, on the other hand, is a naturally occurring phenomenon, the transformative power of which can produce alcohol, preserve our foods and make them more digestible, less toxic and more delicious.  At present, very little is actually understood about the make-up of the starters and how they grow, transform and multiply. Some do it spontaneously and some are seemingly indestructible. But what is universally acknowledged is that bacteria has a positive impact on our digestive system, immune system, blood sugar balance, skin quality and hormone balance — and also plays a very important role in reducing inflammation.

Become a creator rather than a consumer, and learn to use a simple and effective method of fermentation to make a variety of delicious kefirs. Learn how to make dairy kefir, almond milk kefir, water kefir and coconut water kefir. Taste them to find the ones that you like, and learn how to make them yourself at home. Learn why it is great for your digestive and immune systems and how to implement kefir into your daily life for the benefit of the whole family. Kefir is safe and effective for all ages.

You will take away recipes, kefir grains (milk and water) and a SCOBY.

Hormone Balance @ The Body Group
Jan 17 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Hormone Balance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When hormonal conditions are diagnosed and treated by the medical community, they are normally treated in isolation and normally through the use of pharmaceuticals — which may not address the driving cause.

Hormones are our bodies’ messages. They all work together, and upsetting the balance of one will knock them all over like an intricate domino effect. Treating them in isolation is putting a big Band-Aid over a rumbling volcano!

You will be surprised by how many conditions hormones play a role in and the fact that they are very easily balanced with natural methods. Come and learn all about them!

Children’s Nutrition; From ‘Bump’ to Teenager @ The Body Group

Confused with all the information on what to feed your kids? Learn very practical information with Louise Kane Buckley

Childrens Nutrition


Babies need more calories and protein per pound than any other age group. They will never go through such rapid growth and development again in their lives. The first year sees so many changes, and it is no surprise that nutrition should be a top consideration for their future health.


Beyond the first year, the nutrient needs for growth and development do not change. However, how and what you feed them will be a huge factor as they enter the world where they are free to make choices and have to deal with social and media pressures on what and how they eat. How can we as parents help them to make good lifestyle choices from the beginning?


This course is designed to help you learn how to teach your children to make choices to strengthen and heal their digestive and immune systems and to help minimise inflammation and maximise brain development. Most importantly, the course will help you provide them with the nutrients needed to meet their physical, emotional and mental needs so that their development can flourish.
