Annual GP Conference, Rotorua, 2016.
Just back from attending the annual GP conference in Rotorua with Mr Wayne
Neal and his partner Tanya. What an amazing experience.
Our presentation focused on neuroscience tools and knowledge to assist medical
professionals and my app launch were well received by all, and we enjoyed
meeting and learning lots with the many attendees.
The people who downloaded ThoughtWavesPro free guided meditations app,
were overjoyed to find it really did improve their sleep. One delighted lady
informing me that she never managed to sleep while attending conferences, yet
with the app, she had enjoyed a full night, awakening fully refreshed, just before
her alarm went off. How great could you feel after a full night’s sleep?
We’d like to send a particularly huge thank you to Sarah and Mark from the
Mobile Health Team www.mobilesurgical.co.nz . Thank you, for your
amazing support while filming the medical education You Tube interviews.
Wow… such an incredible team… Of course, I’ll let you know as soon as these
videos are available to watch.
Guided Meditation turns on the Parasympathetic Nervous System, immediately
changing hormone release internally. This can be demonstrated in real time by;
1. Saliva or blood testing.
2. Bio-feed back methods such as Heart Rate Variability.
3. Or Muscle testing
Here, I’m muscle testing a delightful volunteer, Pauline. The phenomenon of
changing muscle power with altering thoughts has been observed for eons and is
widely used in the alternative practitioner community, yet only recently has
been backed by science… emerging as an available tool from under the radar, as
it were and it’s effects are incredible to experience.
I use it often in my medical practice to empower patients, demonstrating for
them the effects of negative speak or thoughts on their available power.
Alternatively, I might use muscle testing if I’m wishing to demonstrate for
someone how mere words or language choices within a guided meditation
rapidly alter body chemistry for health benefits… Highlighting the value of
resting back and listening a meditation, even where the benefits may be under
the radar for the listener. Awareness that changes are happening within, even if
they are not immediately obvious. Simply, rest back, enjoying mediation until
changes, improved feelings and emotions, begin to be noticed. After 8 weeks MRI
changes becoming apparent as per neuroscientist Sara Lazar, as amygdala size
decreases. The amygdala, is the part of the brain which triggers the stress
response. It’s size has be shown to be correlated with stress experienced by
Here, Wayne discusses Heart Rate Variability with an attendee. This is real time
bio-feed back allowing us to discover the effects of thoughts on heart efficiency.
Normally the heart rate fractionally increases on inspiration and fractionally
decreases on expiration. It’s a subtle change, and needs to be specifically looked
for. In relaxation or coherence, the heart rate changes are smooth, however, in
stress the changes are erratic, in addition there is loss of efficiency regarding
the cardiac output, effectively a loss of power.
All 3 indicies improve the moment an individual starts to positively relax.
As the Parasympathetic Nervous System activates and the ‘Fight and Flight
Response’ of stress reduces. Causing all these benefits;

Thanks to everyone who entered our fun prize draw. Our winner Madeline
texted, ‘Thank you, what an absolute treat! I loved your talk and stand.
Thank you Madeline, and all attendees for encouraging us with your enthusiasm
and positive feedback.
