 Nathan Burns – Acupuncture & Massage

Nathan Burns has more than ten years of clinical practice experience. Nathan graduated from the Traditional Chinese Medicine course offered at Victoria University of Technology and has a passion for helping people regain control of their lives.

Nathan’s motto is to “Own Life!” This can be interpreted in many ways; however, the central idea is that his clients become empowered to fulfil their potential.

This can be achieved through the reduction of pain – physical, emotional or both.

Physical and emotional pain

Nathan treats physical and emotional aspects of pain at the same time. This is a corner stone of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and something that was refined in Nathan’s treatments during a year-long study trip to Xian, China.

  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Back pain and especially management of sciatica-like symptoms is an area where Nathan is well-regarded.
  • Neck and shoulder pain

Similarly, neck and shoulder problems can also cause acute and chronic pain and stress. Keyboard posture is a major culprit in this epidemic of muscle tightness and pain. A few carefully placed acupuncture needles may be able to provide some patients with relief. Posture and exercise form part of an ongoing management strategy to help people enjoy their lives more fully.

Headaches and migraines

Headaches and migraines usually have a muscular component. Nathan will identify and treat muscle tightness and spasm, which may be able to improve the frequency and severity of painful episodes in some patients.

Nathan is a nationally registered Chinese Medicine Professional.

 Felicity Keir – Naturopath

I offer Naturopathic treatment to rebalance the gut and hence the body, this includes the use of food as medicine, nutritional supplements and herbal medicine, diet and lifestyle advice, and a good solid listening ear, I will listen to what it is that you need and we will work together through your hurdles to get you back to wellness . 

Sometimes we need to do testing to get a clear picture of what is happening, commonly I use stool tests, blood tests and at times referral for deeper testing if I feel you need it. Something we can talk about when we sit down together. Gut condition forms a very large and important foundation for our health and is the predominant area I work within, I get so much joy doing my detective work into the gut looking for the root cause of health complaints and how they are connected.  Main conditions I see are gut and digestive issues such as IBS, constipation, diarrhea, post infections but I also work with mental health issues such as mood struggles, anxiety, depression and trouble sleeping

 Jeanette – Holistic Counsellor/Coach, Reiki, Crystal Healer, Colour Therapist, Meditation Facilitator, & Angel Practitioner

The basis of the name, ‘Wombat Hollow,’ came to our principal practitioner, Jeanette, when she was just a little girl, visiting the zoo with her grandmother. She had never seen a wombat before, but immediately resonated with this round sturdy animal. The fact that she could reach over and just manage to touch this beautiful animal sealed what was to be a lifelong affection.

Many years later, when it came to acquire a business name, the result was self-evident. Yes, ‘Wombat Hollow’ sounded appealing, but more than that, it echoed Jeanette’s intention of what this holistic practice now offers.

The meaning for ‘wombat’ as a totem animal reflects the meaning of standing your ground when needed, determination, and confidence in one’s abilities. These have all been actions she follows but has had to work hard over time to achieve – just as you, our clients, will come to our practice presenting with areas requiring support to grow.

In Scott Alexander King’s “Animal Messenger” he speaks of the wombat ‘walking her talk’ and that ‘to treat others as you would be treated yourself is the golden rule of wombat dreaming.’ This meaning is a philosophy with which Jeanette strongly resonates. It is the intention of this practice to support you always with this philosophy in mind.

The word ‘hollow’ was chosen to imply a place of comfort and caring, a cosy private hollow or safe place, where one can be one’s self and be able to speak freely and with trust. We hope this image is also realised for you when you choose to use our services.
