“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

Yvonne

Ka Huna bodywork is an ancient therapeutic massage technique based on the teachings and practices of the Hawaiian Kahunas. In the language of native Hawaiians, the word “kahuna” is derived from “huna” which means “secret knowledge.” In other words, a Kahuna was a master practitioner of the huna arts. The massage (“lomi lomi”) was traditionally practiced in the Hawaiian Islands as one of the Kahuna healing arts and for relaxation. Kahuna massage in the West is also said to be therapeutic and extremely relaxing. Ka Huna bodywork is a flowing style of massage, providing a holistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in its physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.

It is with deep respect for the Hawaiian culture from which this style of bodywork is based, that Yvonne uses her dance and movement experience to practice this beautiful flowing style of bodywork. She studied at Mette’s Institute, Queensland to attain her Level Seven Ka Huna Bodyworker certification and has been practicing this holistic modality for the past 6 years. Yvonne can offer you a range of treatments from a flowing relaxing and rejuvenating treatment, to a deeper more remedial/deep tissue session.

Yvonne’s work within the fitness sector so has a solid understanding of the body and how it works, which has been beneficial to her no training now as a bodyworker. She was introduced to Ka Huna bodywork several years ago and because this modality provides the all-round approach to healing the body, mind and spirit, which she believes to be important when working with her clients. She works on the philosophy that every clients’ need is different, and therefore every Ka Huna experience is individualized to meet that need which will facilitate your journey to wellness.
