TCM has some unique advantages when treating women’s issues, including menstrual irregularities, menopause, fertility and pregnancy. Our ability to recognize the pattern of disharmony means we know what to treat and how to correct imbalances.

Specialized Trauma Therapy with Kali

Kali Foster is a pioneer in the field of Somatic trauma therapy, drawing from Japanese palpation-style acupuncture, and Kathy Kain’s touch work to give bodywork treatments that deeply regulate the nervous system. Her clients often experience deep release of tension patterns in their body, and deeply ‘safe’ and relaxed states. By working with safety and co-regulation, deeper parasympathetic states can be achieved, which aids the acupuncture and often delivers rapid and profound results. Kali also weaves Somatic Experiencing® trauma sessions with boundary work and accessing healthy anger and self compassion.

“The slower we go, the deeper the work”

What are Trauma Release Exercises (TRE)?

Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) is a simple, self-empowering technique you can learn and then use at home to help relieve stress, anxiety, back pain, and many other symptoms. It is a body centered process that can help to release deep chronic tension created during traumatic or stressful events by deliberately invoking the body’s innate shaking/tremoring mechanism. It is easily learned and often brings immediate results.

Kali teaches TRE to individuals from the clinic, and she also offers 1:1 Trauma therapy using Somatic Experiencing® techniques. This can help with pain, stress and anxiety by calming and regulating the nervous system.

Kali teaches TRE to individuals from the clinic on Mondays, Thursdays & Fridays. Call Kali on 0407 564 836 or book online.
