After a lifetime of headaches, a year of being constantly sick, incessant nagging from my work colleagues about my disturbing sounding cough, CAT scans, extreme fatigue, weight gain, chest x-rays and respiratory specialist appointments…I finally arrived at my crisis point.

My sister was staying with me at the time and mentioned that a friend of hers was going to a naturopath and personal trainer – Adam. After reading his website, I decided it was time! Time for one of the biggest and best changes in my life.
Just a few days later, I found myself sitting in Adam’s office. Could I really follow his suggestions? No yoghurt? Just one coffee a day? Join a gym?
It has now been over 16 months since that first day, and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions of my life.

I don’t remember the last time I had a sinus infection, I have lost 20kg, rarely get headaches, no longer spend the morning coughing, have increased confidence, improved my fitness and have the energy to live life.

It was a journey of tears; mind-altering thinking, hard work and lots of laughter. It was all made easier by how supportive, intuitive, non-judgmental, encouraging and funny Adam is. He didn’t even complain when I spent the whole personal training session giving him ‘death stares!’
I feel like a new person … fit, healthy and happy. If you are ready to commit to the best change in your life … Adam is the one!

This has been an amazing journey and I have never been so happy with my health and my appearance.

For years I have suffered with allergies and had to take hay fever pills and nasal sprays everyday just so that I could get through the day and to enjoy the sport I love.

 Now I can breath easily (pill and spray free) for the first time in years. My skin has cleared up and my nails are no longer breaking. My stress levels are under control now too.

The bonus is that I have lost a total of 6 kilos, and just in time for my wedding in 8 weeks. Thank you so much for your wonderful advice/treatment and for making everything easy to follow and understand.

 I only wish I had come to you sooner!

Adam Hansen has helped me change every aspect of my life. I was once very shy, inactive and working in a highly stressful job. I was run down, feeling depressed and anxious and I wasn’t sleeping.

A friend of mine was getting great results with Adam and knew he could help me too. He pretty much dragged me to Adam’s office. Adam is kind and calm and he put me at ease right away. With his holistic approach, motivation and inspiration, I was soon enjoying a healthy natural diet, exercising regularly and feeling great about life.

My depression had completely gone. Adam always made sure my head was in the right place.  Within just three months of working with Adam I had run a half marathon in Cambodia raising $4500 for charity, only possible with his help. Adam is an amazing body worker with many skills who can also deal with any emotional issues that come up.

These days my relationships with family, friends and even work colleagues are relaxed, fun and deeply connected.  I love exercise and healthy food. I’m no longer painfully shy, After a HNLP session with Adam, I have really found my voice. I’m more confident than I ever thought I could be and I love life in every moment. I don’t even recognize the girl I used to be. If you would like to change any part of your life at all, Adam is certainly the guy who can show you the way.

I would highly recommend Adam’s therapeutic massage for busy professionals looking for increased well-being and stress- relief. Not only is Adam friendly and professional but he also has vast anatomical knowledge and great technical massage skills.

For me, this has meant that my neck and shoulder tension was effectively treated, with remarkable improvement in my symptoms in just a few sessions. The massage results are long lasting and I have now incorporated therapeutic massage as part of my own preventative care routine, so that I can happily care for my patients, without feeling the effects of long working hours and computer work so much. Thank you, Adam.

Two years ago I severely injured my right psoas major and iliacus in a cycling incident.

After several months of intense physio work the muscles had healed but remained very prone to re-injury. After several cycles of re-injury and repeat physio, the next step seemed to be strengthening the specific muscles and a general whole-of-body strengthening program to support them.

Adam took a three-pronged approach:

  • Remedial: providing general and targeted massage, using the Emmett technique, applying light pressure to specific receptors to release muscle tension
  • Mental: The pain associated with the initial injury was extreme. The memory of the pain, and the fear of its return when I re-injured these muscles, was preventing me from pushing beyond what I thought was ‘safe’. In one 15-minute session, Adam used a Neuro-Linguistic Programming technique to help me re-write the memory of the pain associated with the event. The effect was immediate; initially, although I still recalled the event from time to time I no longer felt the fear. After about two weeks, I no longer recalled the event; I had stopped thinking about it altogether. This one session was the key to progressing physically.
  • Progressive: A focused program of strengthening the injured muscles plus gently increasing, strengthening program to ensure a supporting, whole-of-body balance

In addition to the work specifically aimed at my injury, the full body work-out has also resulted in a major improvement in muscular strength which had plummeted post-menopause and includes substantial improvement in balance and poise.

Adam also undertook a review of my general health and discovered a low level of magnesium was causing very poor sleep. I had been an insomniac all my life. Correcting my magnesium levels has resulted in a regular sleep pattern and a good night’s sleep.

As a footnote: Adam is supervising my training so I can cycle three stages (13, 14 and 15) of the 2015 Tour de France. This has been an extensive and very positive journey in just 12 months.

Adam Hansen has been looking after my health for years. If you expect your practitioner to listen, find answers and to give you solid advice regarding your health and wellbeing, then I urge you to make an appointment with Adam.

I was looking for a knowledgeable, caring and kind practitioner with a holistic client approach. Those were key factors in my decision to see a naturopath and I’ve never looked back since, because that is exactly what I got at AHF. To tell you the truth, I can’t even remember when I last saw my GP…

Adam gave me solid advice, no matter if it was for weight loss and exercise (yes, the fat just melted off!!), a sore throat or my shoulders and neck pain which triggered severe, frequent headaches and crippling migraines for years. After massages, reflexology treatments and energetic healing sessions, my shoulders and neck felt like “new”. I am now pain free and the headaches and migraines are a thing of the past. I continue to have weekly “maintenance-massages” due to the nature of my job and the physical work involved (I am a Registered Nurse).

Adam certainly gave me a new perspective in regards to my health issues. The helpless feeling disappeared, my confidence got restored because I saw his treatments work every day of my life and I finally realised that I don’t have to suffer and live my life in pain. His great communication skills make it easy to understand what his treatments are all about, you won’t get any medical mumbo-jumbo here!

I always walk out of Adam’s office feeling positive, empowered and in control of my health and I can’t thank him enough for that!

Working with Adam Hansen has been nothing short of inspiring and the results I’ve achieved have had a profound influence on my life and thinking.

My journey to weight loss and better health hasn’t just been a minor makeover, I’ve been working on a complete internal and external renovation and Adam’s holistic solutions have proved a guiding light. In a reasonably short period of time, I’ve lost weight (and there is plenty to lose), become stronger and more flexible, had more energy, have banished food addictions, changed habits, bought smaller clothes, been re-invigorated by exercise and fallen in love with Brazil nuts.

Truly a pleasure to have on my “get-well” team, Adam is a gifted teacher and problem solver. Generous with his knowledge, Adam intuitively brings together various disciplines and a multi-level approach in a way which is understandable and actionable. Thanks to Adam’s help, encouragement and guidance, I’ve transformed my body and my life for the better and learnt skills I can carry with me always.

Two and a half years ago, I dislocated my shoulder during a surfing lesson in Bali, which me with a neck and trapezius injury that has caused me severe and persistant pain.

Thinking that medical intervention would solve my problems, I tried a range of treatments such as manipulation, medication, steroid and medial branch block injections, which only exacerbated my pain and left me feeling very despondant, especially when I was told by a pain specialist there was nothing else that could be done.

I was at the end of my tether when a friend recommended I should try alternative treatments such as reflexology, naturopathy and massage. At this stage I was open to anything as I was determined to get on top of the pain that was affecting my whole life.

Adam Hansen’s holistic approach to my injury and pain has been a lifesaver. This has not been an overnight miracle, the healing journey involved an exploration over a number of months using a range of complimentary treatments to work through the multi-layered problems requiring massage, detox, exercises and herbal medications.

What stays with me is Adam’s ability to connect to me as a person. I felt I was the centre of his holistic solutions-focused approach. Without sounding too new age, Adam has the ability to link remedial therapies with the spiritual, emotional, physical and mental wellbeing domains.

For me Adam offers the unique experience of being able to decipher the root cause of the pain and peel it away, layer by layer-just what every aching body and soul needs.
