About Patrice Connelly
Patrice Connelly is a professional naturopath and nutritionist, Reiki Master, Energetic Healer and Rebirthing/Breathwork facilitator. She is also a musician and amateur genealogist. Click on the other website buttons at left to go to those websites.
Patrice has long had an interest in various natural therapies since her teenage years. It was teaching viola da gamba (a bowed musical instrument) that actually led to her studying full time at Nature Care College in Sydney because she wanted to know what was happening physiologically when students were learning to bow the instrument. First anatomy and physiology, massage, then nutrition, rebirthing, counselling, kinesiology, lymphatic drainage, energetic healing and many other subjects were conquered.
Following her move to Queensland in 2006, Patrice undertook a Bachelor of Natural Therapies at Southern Cross University which she completed in one year with a high distinction average. More recently she has received further qualifications through Health Schools Australia.
Patrice is a professional member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society, the Complementary Medicine Association and the Australian Reiki Connection Inc. She has ATMS accreditation for naturopathy, nutrition, remedial massage and remedial therapies. CMA accredits naturopaths only. With ARC she is an accredited Reiki practitioner and master.
She holds current medical indemnity insurance, and is recognised by private health funds for naturopathic consultations and ENAR (as a TENS device).
Reiki is one of Patrice's favourite modalities. She began Reiki I with Beth Gray in 1987, and did Reiki II with Barbara McGregor in 1999. Her Reiki Master course was with Jacqui Bushell.
Another interest is in education. Patrice loves to give talks, teach (she holds a Cert IV in TAE and taught Study Skills and Assignment writing at Nature Care College), and participate in community health events. The more people understand about what good diet, fitness and a healthy emotional life can do for them, the more disease is avoided, and the more the community saves.
Patrice holds a current Blue Card to work with children and the elderly. She is also a Commissioner for Declarations in Queensland.

So much can be achieved with diet. Patrice has trained in naturopathy which includes nutrition as well as herbal medicine, massage, counselling and many adjunct therapies. The first appointment is about taking the case. This can take up to two hours, and is where client and practitioner get to know each other.
People often ask what breathwork or rebirthing are. They are one and the same thing: the use of full, conscious connected breath to resolve past trauma, limiting beliefs or scripts, and to help us to live intentionally.
