Our Therapy

Health Connection Ballarat uses the latest researched therapies including Neural Integration System, Craniosacral Therapy and Bowen Therapy to deliver positive health and wellness outcomes for individuals and families.


What is Neural Integration System?

Neurological Integration System (NIS) is built on the principles of neuroscience to address health issues or concerns. It uses latest scientific research at a cellular level to address causes and not the symptoms and therefore attaining optimal health and results. The system recognises that no part of the human body works in isolation, but that each is supported and aided by many other parts. It works by identifying which signals (motor-sensory feedback loops) between the brain and body are not functioning optimally.


The practitioner will contact specific anatomical points on the body and cranium and then use a muscle test to determine if the signal needs to be corrected. The correction is a gentle tap on a specialised area of the cranium known as the Post Central Gyrus (PCG). This restores a previously disconnected or never connected signal and allows issues to start to be resolved. 


Depending on how long a patient has experienced symptoms, the age of the patient and the severity of the issue, we see different time frames for symptoms to be resolved. Many patients experience some immediate relief, whilst others take more time.

Principle #1

NIS is based on the principle that our brain maintains all of our neurophysiology. This means that without stress, the signals between our brain and body allow us to function at optimal health. If we do experience a stress (physical, hormonal, emotional, neurological, or pathological), these signals can become overloaded and this is when we start to see symptoms of illness, stress, emotions and/or pain 

Principle #2

The second principle of NIS is that it addresses the source or cause of symptoms in order to effectively help problem areas for a patient. NIS addresses the unique cause of each patient’s compliant by finding, targeting and addressing the issue from a cellular and signal level.

Principle #3

The Brain makes the corrections, not the practitioner. While the practitioner is certainly a part of the process, NIS identifies how incredibly powerful our own brains are at knowing our bodies and at being able to heal ourselves.

CranioSacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy works to help correct structural imbalances in the human body. This allows the body’s innate intelligence to restore impeded circulation and alleviate any nerve impingement, allowing dysfunctional cells to heal themselves. Craniosacral Therapy allows your cranial fluid to function optimally, relieving signs and symptoms and allowing your body to obtain optimal health.


Craniosacral Therapy does not involve any spinal manipulations or adjustments but focuses on the use of light-touch therapies to align the structural integrity of the body. Simple contact points are used on the body with gentle touch allowing the cranial fluid to be treated and express the healing power. When the structural integrity of the body is restored optimal function and health can be achieved.

Bowen Therapy

What is Bowen Therapy?

Bowen Therapy involves the practitioner making gentle, precise Bowen moves over tendons, muscles and nerve bundles. These moves help bring the body into balance promoting healing and positive change. The moves allow the body to integrate and unwind tensions held. There is often a period of time known as a ‘wait’ after moves. This is when the body does its work.

  • A Typical Treatment
    Using a series of protocols that are updated yearly based on current research, an NIS practitioner touches specific anatomical contact points and then uses a muscle test to understand what needs to be corrected. The treatment is very gentle, non invasive and can be performed on anyone from birth to the elderly. The protocols for treatment include, but are not limited to: immunology, inflammation, pathogens, emotions, hormones, neurology, physiology, retained primitive reflexes, cells including red blood cells.
  • How often should I see a practitioner?
    We recommend an initial three visits to be booked over four weeks. After this time, we can schedule sessions further apart until issues are resolved. It is recommended you see your NIS practitioner every three to four months. The reason for this time frame is based on the life cycle of our red blood cells. Red Blood Cells (RBCs) perform the vital role of delivering oxygen and removing waste and are renewed every 120 days. It is beneficial and recommended to have a regular treatment so small problems can be addressed with a view to maintaining excellent long-term health.
