Mind-body Retraining Seminar

 

Here is a fantastic opportunity to learn directly from Mel Abbott about how to kickstart your recovery!   

In previous intro seminars, some people made full recoveries and no longer needed to do the full 4-day Switch course.  Others experienced huge improvements, which made their time on the waiting list far more tolerable and added to their excitement and readiness for The Switch.

You could be next!

 

This is the last time that I am holding intro seminars live.

Future seminars will be online,

so grab your last chance to come and learn directly from me!

Here is one man’s story from a previous intro seminar:

“My body shut down from stress and exhaustion and I ended up in hospital for some time and then went on to have 9 months off work. I couldn’t walk to my letter box and now I’m doing 10km walks a day and losing weight and changing my outlook on life. I’m going back to work full time in Early January.

Through your recommendations from the 2-hour intro seminar, which both my wife and I use every day, and following the information in your emails, I have improved 98% and am a totally different person from the beginning of the year. I won’t need the 3-day course and would like you to take my name off the list and let someone else take my place. Both my wife and I would like to thank you for what you have achieved in getting me back to work and making me a better and happier person.

We are telling everyone about Empower Therapies and using me as an example of what can be achieved if you put your mind to it!”

 

The intro seminar covers:

  • My own and others’ recovery stories to get you inspired and hopeful
  • Activities to focus you forwards onto your own recovery
  • The role of the stress response in chronic illness
  • Techniques to calm your stress response and anxiety, so that your body can recover
  • How to rewire your neural patterns away from chronic illness patterns
  • The neurology of chronic pain and how to start changing it
  • Simple interventions to resolve depression
  • How to generate more energy
  • How to curb emotional eating patterns
  • How emotions get trapped in the body and cause illness
  • An action plan for moving forwards into your own recovery

 

You will receive:

  • 2.5 hours of fast paced information and techniques, followed by live Q&A
  • Handout of course information
  • Weekly support emails for a month with more techniques to aid your recovery
  • Guided audio track for a neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) process for recovery
  • $100 discount off The Switch, should you still need more help

 

Here are the statistics from a previous 2.5 hour intro seminar:

 

Here’s what is possible just a few days after an intro seminar…

Thank you for the workshop…it was definitely mind blowing.

As I left to walk home, I started up an internal dialogue with my amygdala.  I have also been focusing on balanced breathing and gratitude (I’m Christian, and I’m giving thanks to god for the things I observe in my day to day life.
I’m also utilising 321 when I’m travelling or awake in bed, and consciously STOP myself when I notice body scanning.
The very next day at work, I was able to observe my knees were not painful when I got up to go to the toilet and I was walking more freely.  I have had minimal painkillers over the week as well.
I look forward to further improvements in my amazing  body.
Thank you

I want people to know that a cure can occur in an instant, like a lightening strike, as if a switch had clicked. Before Mel’s seminar, I had read the intro to the Lightening process, about 12 months previously. I experienced a sudden massive relief. However I did not learn any maintenance techniques and had relapsed. Mel speaks beautifully, has undoubted empathy and is strong. Her introductory seminar discusses a range of conditions so may seem all too brief but crucially introduced me to daily practice for maintaining health. I accepted her challenge to stay well, for good. The following morning, I awoke with positive thoughts crowding in. I cannot remember when that last happened.

 

You’re doing a major public service Mel!

Bookings are essential.

Tickets are $180 (or $325 for a double ticket) but if you then go on to do the three-day course, you will get a $100 discount off that course. This means that you either get well for $180 or this seminar has only cost you $80!

NZ NLP Conference – The Body as a Signpost of Emotion

Radio New Zealand Interview – August 2016

John Dunbar, Orthopaedic Surgeon in Dunedin, has been a huge supporter of my mind-based interventions for chronic pain and we have recently co-led a seminar and were both interviewed on Radio New Zealand about mind and emotions affect chronic pain (and other chronic illnesses). You can listen to our interview here:

 

New Zealand GP Conference Presentation

I was very excited to present at the national GP Conference in Rotorua this year! I spoke about mind-body interaction and how stress causes so many of the illnesses that GPs will see. I gave them lots of tips on changes they can make in their own practice to help patients gain more sense of control over their own well-being. I was also invited to do this interview to help spread the word further!
