“I believe it is through connecting with our authentic self that we rediscover the wellspring of deep inner stillness, wisdom, strength and joy within each of us, thus allowing healing to occur on many levels.”

~ Bernadette, Director of Yoga and Holistic Bodywork

Therese

With over 15 years experience as a physiotherapist, Therese’s practice of holistic health deepened with her own journey into yogic lifestyle and mindfulness meditation since 2009. Since then her array of bodywork has broadened and taken her from rural Australia around the world, learning, adapting and evolving her heart-centred practice along the way. The key point of any session with Therese is deep relaxation, a state from which we can more easily connect with the innate wisdom within to go through the healing journey (life!) with awareness, compassion and connection.

Nick

Nicks use of Usui Reiki and his fusion of deep relaxation through guided meditation allows the body to surrender and receive.
Rei-ki  ( universal energy ) is a healing that is enjoyed with limited touch, it helps us raise our vibration and connect with the innate healing power that exisit’s in all of us.
This approach to healing is still somewhat tangible, you may feel tingling or heat in different parts of your body as your energy is replenished.
“Nick’s Reiki treatment was amazing! I found the session to be profoundly relaxing, and afterwards I felt so lifted  and full of joy – I couldn’t keep from smiling” — Freddie Jenkins
Nick was amazing and helped me relax with a guided meditation and then started the Reiki, and although there is no touch I could “feel” the Reiki working. 
I had an incredible experience. I felt so relaxed and “lighter” afterwards, and the next day as well.   — Lorna Hill
