About Jacqui Bushell

jacquiI have been working in private practice in natural therapies and energetic healing for 20 years. As well as people of all ages, I also work with animals and some environments. For over a dozen years I have been teaching at Natural Therapies colleges in Sydney as well as facilitating retreats, courses and workshops in the areas of Vibrational Remedies, Herbal medicine, Reiki and Spiritual healing. I am also actively involved in community health work.

One of my key motivations is to make health care accessible, affordable and empowering for people. I am passionate about sharing knowledge and supporting people to become more aware of their true potential. For me, it is not just about giving someone a bottle of expensive herbs and tablets but engaging in a more co-creative process - an invitation to become more aware of their body and connections with the environment.   Only in this way can we truly empower ourselves and others. There is so much available in our environment that can be supportive emotionally as well as physically. This might mean teaching someone how to make an essence to assist them with insights and transformational processes or how to make a medicine from a 'weed' herb growing in their neighborhood.

How medicines are manufactured is also very important  to my practice; how herbs and flowers are grown, collected and processed, how companies manufacture supplements and what from and the source of all the ingredients in my creams and ointments. Occasionally supplements are of great benefit but preferably diet will be the mainstay of good health. I love making my own medicines from local growing plants where possible - they have such a vibrant vitality, as well as looking after my local areas ('weeding'!). Ethically I wish to use only that which is sustainable, organic wherever possible and guaranteed fairtrade, for example with my Shea and Cocoa Butter.
