The Mickel Therapy Clinic, Auckland - What is Mickel Therapy

The Truth about Illness and Health

How you can recover your health

Overview of Mickel Therapy

Hundreds of people have already healed themselves from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression. So please be optimistic - there are answers. What has been missing for most people is a true understanding of the causes of these conditions.

Mickel Therapy specializes in working out why your body is experiencing symptoms, because it sees them as a messenger, and interprets the symptoms rather than shooting the messenger. Mickel Therapy treats the symptoms and conditions of chronic fatigue tiredness, fibromyalgia pain, sleeplessness, anxiety, irritable bowel or depression.

How and why symptoms may be a good thing

Believe it or not, Mickel Therapy understands that symptoms are actually a good thing. That may sound like a crazy thing to say, because of course symptoms of pain are uncomfortable and inconvenient, often to the point of completely disrupting your life. However, the truth is symptoms are your body's way of communicating to you. In other words, they are trying to tell you something.

The question is, do you know what they are trying to tell you? For most people with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, irritable bowel etc, the answer is emphatically no. They don't have a clue.

So then the question is, how do you become aware of what it is you are not understanding about your body? In other words, how do you become aware of what you are not aware of?

The answer is you start to become aware of what is really going on inside your body at a mind-body level. You start to see what you have been missing in terms of the signs and signals your body has been sending you about how it feels about what is going on in your life. And you start to see how this has a knock-on effect of creating certain behaviours and habits which are detremental to the physiological functioning of the body. Over time, these patterns and behaviours will lead to disease, such as the conditions of chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia pain, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and more.

Mickel Therapy works out exactly what it is that your body has been trying to tell you, and then gives you precise tools to start working with so that you understand what is going on inside you at a mind-body level every minute of every day. Once you start listening to your body and what it is telling you via symptoms, your body no longer has to manifest those symptoms.

Once you understand this, you wonder how you could ever have missed it. This knowledge is not rocket-science - it's just about awareness; about becoming aware of what you were previously unaware of. It's actually quite simple, althought not always easy at first, and just requires some training and practice.


Symptoms are intelligent communication

Mickel therapy is underpinned by the hypothesis that the conditions of CFS, ME, PVFS and FMA are created by a dysfunction of the hypothalamus gland. It also recognises the conditions of CFS, ME, PVFS and FMA as being purely physical rather than psychological in nature.

Mickel Therapy sees conditions such as stress, insomnia, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia as disorders of the energetic system of the body wherebye we manifest mental or emotional pain on a physical level.

Emotional energy which has been chronically mismanaged literally alters our metabolism at a cellular level; if our cells are not functioning optimally, then our body, which is just a group of cells, will not be well either.

Instead of seeing physical symptoms as something annoying to be got rid of as quickly as possible - without asking why they are there in the first place - Mickel Therapy takes the perspective that the body is innately intelligent, and that symptoms are smart and necessary communication from the ’Body Intelligence’.


Body Wisdom Body Intelligence

Mickel Therapy works by interpreting symptoms rather than by trying to eradicate them (by ‘killing the messenger’). Once the message the Body has been trying to communicate to the person is received and heard, they are then taught given exercises and skills to work with to train the head to listen to the body to the extent that the body no longer needs to send symptoms.

The good news is that the body is a self-healing mechanism and that everyone has the ability to heal. Mickel Therapy allows a person to move from a place of disempowerment to self-empowerment, giving them the ability to take control of their own health.


A message from Kim

"Our body is an incredible INTELLIGENT, SELF-HEALING mechanism. We just need to know ourselves well enough so that we can understand what our body is telling us via symptoms, and then take the required action to re-balance ourselves back to health. Once we understand ourselves, we find we already have everything at our disposal to do so".

"I have spent the last 20 years studying why we get ill and how we can be well. From my own many mistakes, I now understand - in our fast-paced world - how essential it is that we make our wellbeing a priority. Our modern lifestyle has brought us out of touch with our essential nature and environment so much so that we have forgotten the natural rythms and timings of life. We were never designed to be as busy as we are, and it is time to reclaim a more natural and harmonious way of life.

Our body is infact an incredibly intelligent, self-healing mechanism. We just need to understand ourselves better so that we can read what our body is telling us via symptoms, and then take the required action to re-balancing ourselves back to health. Once you know how, it's easy".
