About the work:

The Gentling Way is an amalgamation of all I have discovered that ‘works’/ moves blockages to flows in my personal life, and in clinic over the past 40 years. Allowing nature to reassert itself – as a soul infused person self.
Not forcing.

Holistic multi modality transformative energy body work.

This is a different concept – integrative interaction – the one who seeks and the one who asks different questions of the body to bring through what is need. To be able to, the vehicle/receptacle of the seeker/‘practitioner’ needs to be clearer and more aligned with service, and intention – not current acceptable dogma.


The Gentling Way is respectful.

This is about Sustainable Humanity and the future.

The entry point to enable YOU to step into the Living Ligaments trajectory to become a Gentling Way practitioner is the Gentling Way Self Care weekend workshop.

About you:

I expect all undertaking this course of self-discovery and group service to be:

  1. ‘Kick ass’
  2. Not guru followers.
  3. Prone to going off on tangents
  4. Able to use their own ‘gumption’
  5. Who possibly already have a hands-on healing tool – using Reiki, polarity therapy, etc
  6. May be a bodyworker, acupuncturist, Shiatsu practitioner or similar
  7. Not be averse to completely changing all focus as needed.
  8. Not be tied into dogma, what is ‘safe’ and what appears to be where the world is heading.
  9. Who can accept that the personality is not their driver and they may have BEEN CALLED to do this – so much so that they can not NOT do it.

Thoughts from a 2nd year acupuncture student

‘‘The Gentling Way approach combines a simple and sensible approach which allows healing through recognition of our blockages, taking out what is not meant to be there and nourishing the body thus allowing the body to restore itself to health (homeostasis). It is not focused on the name of the disease state, but rather that the disease state is a reflection that we are not in a state of health and initiates the movement towards a state of health through understanding.

‘I then stumbled across the Gentling Way which was profoundly what I was searching for and continually reminds me that healing is unique to the individual and can be so simple.

‘For me, the Gentling Way merges all of the basis tenants and concepts I have learnt from my previous studies and practical experience, and combines them into an instantly applicable framework with directly observed results. Not focusing on disease, but the unfavourable conditions preventing a return to health.

‘Living the Gentling Way with my wife and taking responsibility for our own health, we have seen remarkable changes at both a biological and relationship level. It is as though subconscious barriers that separated us are being eroded and deepening our relationship. I am a believer of what works and I am passionate to share this knowledge to assist others with their healing journey’ . David- Brisbane.

Thoughts from an apprentice . .

“Have many of you had questions on how to deal with difficult pregnancy cases? I have been working with pregnancy moms for the last 5 years. I finally found a person with the solutions. Heather Bruce

‘All the books and the online information I have found until Heather, were not very effective. I had an extremely difficult case, a pregnant mom with heavy metal poisoning, severe pelvic pain, suffering from heartburn and insomnia. I used all the points I researched in my books and online and it DID NOTHING. I was not able to shift her condition in the least. I reached out to Heather Bruce, and she replied to me right away with solutions that were simple, practical,which involved moving energy and getting the mom the proper nutrients she needed. My client’s pain improved.

‘Her online courses are amazing. The Transformative Healing Package has golden nuggets of knowledge. Heather’s 8 extra courses are the reason I went into acupuncture school to become a healer. A shaman. A person that can show people how to transcend where they are in their lives and moved past it. These will be the best spent few hours of your life. And will shift the foundation of your practice to be built anew. I feel like I have waited my whole career for Heather’s information.  Carine, L.A.


Ask yourself:

Did all traditional cultures/our forebears pay attention to the biology and have faith that their bodies and nature would work?

Be prepared to have all past information thrown out as you discover for yourself what really works.

You will be challenged along the way with what you may have yet to burn off from within.

Expect change – that is where any healing happens

Declutter – get rid of all that no longer serves you (defragment)

Reset – back to ‘factory‘ settings (turn off)

Restore – the blueprint (and turn on again)
