I help women come home to themselves. In their practices. In their personal lives. In their bodies.
I do this with a combination of acupuncture treatment, counseling and coaching and through sharing my own magical navigation system!
Sessions happen either in person or over skype (I cant do acupuncture over skype unfortunately! )
I am passionate to offer you a way to learn how to truly nourish yourself mind body and spirit to step away form over work, exhaustion, burnout and self loathing to experience personal peace, stillness and passion for life.
This. Is. Possible.
I have been able to apply and hone my almost 20 years of experience in the field of acupuncture, wellness and health coaching to create a pathway for others to lovingly move from breakdown to breakthrough.
I learnt this the hard way, so you might not have to
Seven years ago I was a very well travelled Acupuncturist and wife of an artist living overseas. This idillic appearance covered the fact that I was deeply unhappy despite seemingly having it all and living the hippy dream of my 23 year old self. At 33 I knew things needed to change, I needed to change, and boy did they!
I have had to put all my skills and knowledge into action to navigate divorce, death of a loved one and a barrage of life circumstances. (Including creating a new modality and building a brand and a business!)
This has seen me step out from the simmering rubble of my own adrenal burnout with the conviction that I whole heartedly know there is a much easier and loving way through such trying times.
Whether its in our practices or our personal life, this involves nourishing our most primary relationship, the one with ourselves.
Today I feel amazed, inspired, supported and so extraordinarily grateful for where I am. I have always wanted to be the woman I am now. I get to live by the beach, work in the rainforest and travel regularly to treat clients in Australia’s ‘big cities’ Truly its a dream come true. BUT I’m not going to pretend the road here was paved with gold!
This journey is not for the feint of heart and while I personally wouldn’t have it any other way I know this kind of journey is truly for women ready to brave the darkness within to discover the light that never goes out.
(I really hope that this is You!)
I didn’t move through these experiences completely alone, I truly wish I had known how to ask for more help more often.
Let me be that guide for you and man the GPS and offer the support you will need in those moments of doubt. Your homecoming party will be worth every moment I assure you!
If you have found yourself here know that its not meant to be all uphill, that magic and faith (and those adrenals) can be restored, that stopping and being still with yourself is ok.
Its more than ok. Its essential.
It is my belief that the ancient wisdom of our feminine ancestors is still with us, and within us and it is my mission to offer women a pathway to hearing that voice within for herself.
Where it began
At the ripe old age of 19 I ditched the Creative Arts Degree I had started (writing and theatre) and followed a hunch and enrolled in an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy, my love of herbs and bach flowers looked to be a perfect match. Then simply one day toward the end of first year I went and had an acupuncture treatment, my first but certainly not my last! From that moment on I was hooked. People ask me now how I knew what I wanted to do. Its impossible to say. I just did. And I have been following those bread crumbs and hints and winks from the universe ever since. I went and transferred my course from Naturopathy to Acupuncture and never looked back!
I loved from the start that I got to work with my hands and connect with people. Now of course it comes full circle and I get to write more and create more. Nothing is ever lost it just repurposes itself! My 19 year old self could never have imagined all that was possible, but I’m so glad she took those flights of whimsy and bravely (or perhaps naively) kept following the pull she was feeling!

Testimonials for Hot Stone DVD
Angela DerksAuthor of Spa Management Manuals, / Spa training and operations manuals
This is one of the best hot stone training DVD’s available. I particularly loved the close ups of Keri’s hands while she is working with the stones. To really see the massage techniques in this way makes it easy to imitate and learn the sequences. Keri offers natural, enthusiastic and practical instruction. Her skills are founded in her wealth of knowledge from over 15 years in the spa industry. I’d be happy to recommend her to any of my clients.
Eva-Rose JoyceAcupuncturist and Spa Therapist Cabarita
I came to Keri’s Hot Stone Training with little previous massage experience. The DVD was a wonderful resource, letting me practice again and again and watch specific techniques until they felt comfortable and natural. It's been an invaluable learning experience and opened up a whole new line of work in the spa industry.
Camille BartonBeauty and Spa Therapist Gold Coast
As a beauty and massage therapist I had often thought about learning hot stone massage. I had heard such wonderful feedback from clients and therapists about Keri’s style of hot stone massage that I chose to do her two day course. The DVD was a wonderful take home tool and the course paid for itself with the next week's new hot stone clients!
A unique blended and Trade Marked Therapy created by Keri Krieger uses Acupuncture and Hot Stone Massage to heal nurture and inspire.

Honestly, when I look back over the last couple of months and realise how far I have come, I am amazed and incredibly grateful for the love and support and just presence of you in my journey. Life is beautiful and you Keri are an angel Grace and Love, Nic
Eva-Rose JoyceAcupuncturist after 6 months of Practitioner Coaching.
I enrolled in a year's worth of Practice Mentoring with Keri 6 months ago. It has been wonderful to have her on the other end of the phone for assistance with tricky clients, decisions on the direction of my practice and to benefit from her extensive experience in the spa industry. She’s generous with her knowledge and time, her articles are insightful and practical and I really feel she really speaks my language! I’m looking forward to what is in store for the next 6 months as I feel I have already come a long way.
S. Roth (after a 1:1 session)/ S. Roth
I am home from Retreat and just was telling a friend how seeing you really helped me last week and I just wanted to say thank you for your care. It really helped me through my pain seeing you.
I have found your gorgeous affirmations (that I have been reading over and over!) so helpful. Thank you so much for the healing work you did for me - you have such a beautiful caring nature, it helped me so much xx
Keri will lovingly and gently guide you through any emotional physical mental and of course spiritual blocks that you may be facing. She is not only a gifted intuitive but is highly intelligent and brings a sense of humour and ease to her work.
Lara GoodeOsteopath / South Eastern Osteopathy (Soon to be found at Rawreliefosteopathy.com.au!)
Words simply cannot describe just how amazingly magical Keri is. Starting my journey on an 8-week life coaching packaged was the best thing I ever did. Having such a supportive, intelligent and purely down to earth mentor literally changed my life. Her endless devotion and encouragement throughout our coaching sessions has helped me learn new life skills (both personal and business associated). As our program ended (and many tears were shed) I decided I could not possibly live without her and continued a monthly ‘maintenance’ of life guiding goodness! This coupled with body and soul nourishing acupuncture I wouldn’t have it any other way. Keri is now a valuable referral for many of my own clients and a close friend 😊 Jump on board people! You won't be disappointed! Xx
Ali HillPsychologist/Speaker/Awesome Human
Keri’s ability to hold space when I was feeling hopeless, to cut through the noise when I was drowning is her gift to busy women. With her unique insights, her depth of experience and quirky humour, having her as a health coach bought me back to myself. When doubt rung louder than reason in my head, Keri’s practical advice gave me permission to be the biggest and best version of me. Every woman who is busy, drowning, losing sight of themselves will get huge value out of the words and wisdom that Keri shares. Do yourself a favour and get on board. I know that my future self is eternally grateful for the investment I made in having Keri in my corner.
SheridenStudent of Nutrition
Thank you so much for sending me all those resources, and for taking the time to chat with me too! I felt so much better about my future even just after the little chat we had. That really meant the world to me and spun me a 180 in the right direction to a more positive outlook - so, thank you again.
IreneAged Care Worker and Magical Human
Thank you for the session on Friday I feel amazing! I seem to have more energy and even invited friends over for dinner on Saturday night which is not like me I don't usually initiate this but I did, so I'm feeling very happy and keep telling my family that I have had a great weekend. I am so happy to have met you and grateful that you have come into my life.
