A New Approach for a New Year



By Staff Writer Victoria

This issue I sat down and pressed record over a cuppa with my dad - Shane G. Black of NLP Options. To listen to the podcast episode, click the QR link below.


This year, Shane made the bold career change from a sheet metal worker and boiler maker to an NLP Practitioner and Bioelectric Meridian Massage Therapist. In our interview, he shares a heartfelt story of how he knew from just seven years of age that he wanted to “help people”. The story he shared was one even I hadn’t heard before, and had us both in tears. What is so evident is Shane’s genuine desire to help those in pain - physical and / or mental. His aim is to work synergistically with the body and mind to achieve health, wellness and balance.


Bioelectric Meridian Massage Therapy

Bioelectric Meridian Massage Therapy (BMT) is a revolutionary technique that uses the body’s natural bioelectricity to promote healing of underlying causes and imbalances in the body, instead of merely managing the symptoms. BMT is a natural therapy that combines Chinese and Western modalities. A detoxing effect is created by opening and clearing the body’s main meridian lines, which can prevent disharmony and imbalances in the body - a contributing factor to disease and illness. Combining the effects of massage, acupuncture, cupping and other natural modalities, BMT is a gentle and non-invasive technique. BMT uses a TGA approved bioelectric device (‘ABMMA PRO’) that generates a small electrical signal which is transferred to the client’s body through the therapist’s hands. The practitioner’s touch, together with the bioelectric energy and high alkaline BMT cream, helps to unblock the body’s main meridian pathways; supercharging the body’s natural bioelectricity; thus stimulating the cells, nerves and flow of Qi (energy). Some patients experience benefits after only a few treatments, while other conditions require longer term treatment. BMT can assist in:



● Pain management

● Stimulation of the nervous system and sluggish organs

● Improvement of functionality, mobility and blood circulation

● Increasing metabolism for weight loss and increased energy

● Anti-aging

… and so much more!


Neuro Linguistic Programming

As well as BMT, Shane also offers services relating to NLP; which stands for ‘Neuro Linguistic Programming.’ NLP, Shane explains, is “the innate ability to be able to bypass the conscious mind - which is the critical thinking mind - into the subconscious mind and remove negative beliefs and negative traumas that has happened in one’s life. It’s one of the quickest ways to be able to get one’s life back on track. When you take a person through Time Line Therapy®, you’re actually disassociating the trauma that they’ve endured, and they become a witness to what’s happening instead of enduring that particular trauma. I don’t even need to know the trauma.” Shane is a certified NLP Practitioner, Time Line Therapist and Hypnotherapist… and even has plans to study his Masters in NLP in the near future!

NLP and BMT complement each other beautifully - they work synergistically with the body and mind to achieve health, wellness and balance.

I wish you all the very best in your journey.
