I developed an interest in healing during the late 90s. My first experiences of practicing in this field was through Craniosacral Therapy, a subtle hands-on approach to health and well-being. I was able to help people of all ages with a whole range of health conditions.
Over the years I came across certain people who didn’t respond in the same way as the others I was treating. People with ME, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia made up a large part of this group. Sometimes there would be an initial improvement, but it would often be followed by a subsequent relapse.
The mind/body connection
I was fascinated by the mind-body connection and spent a lot of my time researching the latest findings. This appeared to hold the answer to my ‘mystery clients’ and why they weren’t responding like the others. I went on to train in the latest energy psychology techniques focusing on the emotional aspects of illness.
I also trained as an NLP (neuro linguistic programming) practitioner, clinical hypnotherapist and coach with Phil Parker designer of the Lightning Process. I went on to train to be a Lightning Process practitioner and became one of the first twenty advanced level practitioners. Using these mostly psychological approaches the results were good – but I felt there was something missing.
“It’s a pleasure to watch Russell bringing his energy, insight and humour to this important life changing work.”
Phil Parker – creator of the Lightning Process
At the same time I was studying and practicing traditional eastern health systems. I formed my own daily practice, combining aspects of Yoga, Tai Chi / Chi Gung and meditation. The personal benefits I experienced from these techniques spilled over into my work.
I found that I could teach my clients very simple breathing and relaxation techniques that helped to reduce their symptoms and speed-up the recovery process. People were amazed at the positive results they felt from using these simple techniques.
The ‘Aha!’ moment
The pieces of the jigsaw were falling into place. I realised this was why the other approaches hadn’t been more reliable. The key was in combining the most effective elements into a step-by-step system. So this was exactly what I did.
The new system focussed on three distinct areas: the physical, emotional and psychological. Other approaches would usually focus on one or another of these areas – this tended to give results that were hit and miss – some people were helped and some weren’t.
The word spread fast!
As I shared this integrated approach with my clients the results were impossible to ignore. People who had literally tried every other approach were getting well after years of illness. The word spread fast and hundreds of people have now used the same three-part system in their recovery and thousands more have benefited through the resources I share on my website.
The body is not a machine!
The old worldview in medicine looks at the body as a machine made up of separate components. When illness occurs we try to identify the faulty part or system and rectify it with chemicals or by removing it. I’m not saying that conventional medicine has no part to play, of course it does in certain cases – lets just take a look at other options as well!
The new medicine
In the ‘new medicine’ we look at the human system as a self-healing organism. If healing isn’t taking place, we need to look at what’s preventing it and what we can do to optimise the self-healing process. Over the years I’ve refined the three-part system into an approach that anyone can follow. I’ve had successful results with clients ranging from age twelve to seventy.
