 Suzanne Chappell  ITEC, Dip Phyt, MNZAMH
Pain Neutralization Specialist, Massage Therapist, Student Practitioner in Contact Care, Medical Herbalist

Suzanne Chappell went to England in 1989 to train as a Medical Herbalist and Massage Therapist.  She attended The School of Phytotherapy full time for 3 1/2 years full time and qualified in 1991 with a Diploma in Phytotherapy (Herbal Medicine) and ITEC Massage Therapy. 

She has completed various post graduate courses like Muscle Release Technique and Positional Release Technique with Wellpark College, Manual Mobilisation Courses 1, 2 and 3 and Natural Fertility Management with Francesca Naisch from Australia.

In 2005 Suzanne started learning Body Talk and has passed her examinations to qualify as a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, has completed Module 1 through to Module 9, Advanced Module Integration and went to Brisbane to learn Chinese Medicine for BodyTalkers.  She is no longer using BodyTalk in her clinic as has chosen other tehniques she prefers to use.

In 2011 Suzanne learnt the techniques taught by Stephen Kaufman, PNT (Pain Neutralization Technique), a non painful technique which she uses alot in her practice to help aches and pains usually very successfully. Suzanne travelled to Colorado, USA to attend a seminar run by Dr Kaufman and to extend her knowledge in Pain Neutralization.  She has attended many online Zoom seminars since.

In 2017 Suzanne started studying Contact Care/Flinchlock Technique which she is using as part of a treatment for Aches Away! clients.  She has now completed the study (2019).  She has not done the final exams and therefore has to say she is a Student Practitioner. 

Flinchlock helps to release pressure from bones that have been impacted due to suprise injury.  Even stubbing your toe can have an effect on your whole body and how you stand and walk!  Impacted bone causes compression, which can decrease blood supply and nutrients to organs and soft tissue, which can lead to disease.  It can also cause twisting throughout the body and a shift in the centre of gravity in the body.  The body has to compensate to stay upright, so the weight load is put on a different place in the body which can cause pain in other places.  The body has a hard job staying balanced and straight upright.  

In 2019 Suzanne trained to teach others a self help technique for Fibromyalgia, Long Covid and Chronic Fatigue. 

In 2021 Suzanne created a free Facebook Group Aches Away & Energize for Fibromyalgia, Long Covid & Chronic Fatigue. https://www.facebook.com/groups/suzannechappell
