My Aim And Philosophy
As a Remedial Therapist with many years of experience and learning, I have evolved my current understanding, that applying a healing touch with a caring, focused and joyous attitude is an essential part and catalyst for activating the healing process within you. I get joy from connecting with people and seeing the changes achieved in their physical conditions, emotional standing and every-day lives.
My primary aim is to address your presenting physical and/or emotional problems, by detecting and addressing the underlying cause/s, using the various techniques in which I am trained (including Remedial Massage, Bowen Technique, Emotional Freedom Technique, Shiatsu and Reflexology).
To be where I am now has been a long journey of self-development; from a 30 year career in mechanical engineering, where my life was a black-and-white judgemental state of right-and-wrongs, and the pleasures of life that were rather grey, but with a deep feeling that there is a lot more to life.
So I undertook numerous courses (to gratify my engineering, predominantly right-brain mind) and was fortunate to meet and have long, insightful discussions with a wonderful variety of “teachers”. This process, thankfully, is still in full swing – a work in progress. Subsequently, over 20 years ago, with the support of my wonderful wife and family, I commenced my new career in the “remedial” and healing field. This has been - and is - an extremely enjoyable and fulfilling self-growth journey for me, nourishing my body, mind, heart and soul.
Now, after years of working in this field with such a variety and number of people and deriving ever-increasing joy, peace and connectedness, my experience and intuition aid me in my chosen career.
It would be my pleasure to discuss and work with you in addressing your presenting symptoms, needs and desires and to achieve greater health, fulfilment and joy in your life.
“I have been in private practice as a TCM Practitioner since 1992.I have known Abe for the past 10 years through his practices in Double Bay and Bondi Junction. As I regard his practice as complementing to my modalities, and known him to be an effective practitioner delivering good results to his clients, I have referred to Abe over the years without hesitations a few of my clients, always receiving a positive feedback. Moreover, I have had the pleasure to experience first hand his abilities while exchanging treatments on a regular basis in the past. Abe’s years of experience is testimony to his skill, and overall, his capabilities are reflected by the fact that the majority of his clients come through cross referral from either his wide client base as well as practitioners as me”.
"If I sat for any period of time I had pains in my coccyx (tail bone) region. Being a chiropractor, I had my colleagues treat me. I only obtained temporary relief from their efforts. After only 5 treatments from Abe and in conjunction with the regular chiropractic adjustments I am 80% - 90% improved. Abe has various techniques which he uses for an individual's specific needs. This is why I refer to and receive treatment from Abe. He is a very concerned, genuine and kind person who has been gifted with therapeutic hands."
"I suffered from cold sensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivity as well as high anxiety. After a 1 hour session with Abe I felt a 75% better rate of improvement than I had achieved with 6 months of acupuncture and physiotherapy. Best of all I am relaxed all over and feel so much healthier and so much happier. Abe has I been able to not only stabilise my condition but to correct it. His therapy sends 'positive' messages to my muscles, against all the 'negative' messages they are being bombarded"
"I am a student who had continuing headaches, neck, back and leg pains. After only 3 sessions of Bowen Therapy 90% of the pain was gone. I sleep much better and am enjoying school and sport much more."
"My grandmother is 88 and was suffering from a spine condition for years. This caused loss of mobility, pain when walking, knee pain and reduced strength in her right leg. After Abe used the Bowen technique on her for 6 treatments her symptoms improved so much she was not only able to walk a kilometre but negotiate steps and a hill which she hadn't been able to do for years. Abe is a dedicated professional, caring, compassionate and empathetic and always willing to spend that extra time that makes one feel like a person not a number."
