Clear Qi Acupuncture

Hi there – my name is Phillippa Corney and I am 60 years young.

My Business Practice is a Holistic Health Service primarily practicing Acupuncture based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (Maciocia, 2006) and Five Element Acupuncture (Jarrett, 2006) as a treatment method.


I have completed 4 years full time study at the NZ College of Chinese Medicine and further post graduate study to upgrade from a National Diploma to a Bachelor of Health Science.
I also practice Reiki, Tuina/massage, NET - neuro - emotional technique and Tuning Forks.

I am registered with The NZ Register of Acupuncturists – Acupuncture NZ (formerly NZRA) and I’m an ACC Treatment Provider.

My mission statements are:
' Do no harm'.

"To live consciously for freedom according to the virtues of Nature and the Five Elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood with Love, Kindness, Clarity, Truth, Awareness, Perspective, Safety, Wisdom and Worth.

' The unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final say' - Martin Luther King.


Conditions which may be treated using Acupuncture and Chinese herbal Medicine; the following list is based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation.

Neurological: headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, shingles, Meniere's disease, tinnitus, Bell's Palsy, Post Stroke syndrome, insomnia.
Psychological disorders: PTSD: post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression.
Respiratory: sinus problems, hay fever, common cold or flu, Asthma, Bronchitis.
Cardiovascular: Angina, palpitations, high and low Blood pressure.
Gastro - Intestinal: constipation, diarrhoea, IBS - irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, haemorrhoids, heartburn and reflux.

Men's Health: fertility issues, erectile dysfunction, prostate difficulties, hair loss.
Other: skin conditions, bladder disorders.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have been used successfully for many 1000's of years in the treatment of a wide range of conditions. By inserting a number of fine needles into specific points along a system of energy pathways or meridians, the acupuncturist endeavors to restore balance on every level. Because acupuncture works on the whole body, change can be generated emotionally as well as physically.

After taking an extensive case history the practitioner will decide on the most appropriate course of treatment. This may be acupuncture alone or the use of moxibustion (the warming of acupuncture points using the herb Artemesia), tuina (massage), dietary or lifestyle advice and perhaps the recommendation of gentle exercise (tai chi) or breathing (qi gong) techniques.

A course of treatment is generally considered to be between 8-10 treatments. Some conditions will benefit in fewer than this and long term problems could be expected to require considerably more.

If and when appropriate it may be necessary to refer you to other medical practitioners, for blood tests, x-rays, ultra-sounds, CT scans, MRI etc.

• Consultation and Treatments at Clear Qi Acupuncture are an hour and a half. This allows for a meridian balancing, a constitutional treatment as well as treating your chief complaint or main issue.

Clinic fees : $105.00 – 1 ½ hours.
ACC surcharge: $45.00

I look forward to working with you, your friends and family,

Kind and Warm wishes
Phillippa

The jolly festive season of Summer relates to the energy and rhythm of our Fire element and Heart function.

'Noise"... from internal or external influences?....it may arise & come up & at us when we least expect it & in many varied forms if we haven't discerned, identified & been paying attention to our Heart's truth or other people's truth of Heart.
Is someone still crying in your midst or are you the one still crying?
Is this causing you noise within or

is there too much noise going on around you which disrupts your PEACE?
On observation there is evidence of truth and PEACE in the World especially in Nature but also alongside us there is a lot of crying going on, a lot of 'noise'.
We cannot control the noise going on outside of ourselves but we can control our inner noise & influence, inspire our external influences; our environment & those we care for. We can.......read more: 'info' at www.clearqiAcu.billboardme.co.nz and facebook

I found Phillippa to be a warm and gentle practitioner who put me at ease and tailored her treatments to suit me. She was always respectful of my own knowledge of my body, listened well and put up with my many questions. Phillippa helped me move forward through an emotionally rocky time and I let go of a lot of baggage during my treatments with her.
