Shiatsu and SCENAR Therapy Practitioner
I am a qualified shiatsu and Level 3 SCENAR practitioner, member of the Shiatsu Therapies Association Australia, SCENAR Therapist Association Australasia and registered with all health funds for rebates. I work out of Studio 22 aka Sunbear Cave in Northcote, Melbourne. I am also available for treatments at your home within a radius of 10 km’s– please contact me by text or email to request a visit.
I am passionate about shiatsu, with its nourishing nature and subtle means of healing. In my clinic, I create a safe and nurturing surrounding for my clients. In my treatments, I facilitate the process of unblocking stagnation and unlocking the inner healing potential. It gives me joy to see my client leave with increased vitality and in great spirits after a session.
In my spare time do breathwork, enjoy cooking with my kids and getting my thumbs green in the garden.
My biggest passion is music and I pride myself in making playlists to enhance the restoritive power of shiatsu.
Naturopathy is a system of natural therapies which recognise the existence of a vital curative force within the body.
The origins of naturopathy can be traced to ancient Greece. Hippocrates, the “Father of modern medicine” once said “Nature is the healer of all disease” In his holistic view he recognised the body, mind and spirit linked to four elements (air, water, fire, earth) of the natural world. This organism that is body, mind and spirit is an amazing self repairing machine, given the appropriate conditions. The role of the naturopathic healer is to facilitate this process through teaching the natural way of life which advocates fresh air, pure water, wholesome foods and exercise to promote and maintain optimum wellbeing. Nature Cure is based upon these principles. Although the trials and tribulations of modern living have given rise to a contemporary naturopathy enabling us to adapt to the less than desirable conditions of the stressful modern world. The contemporary Naturopath draws on both an understanding of Western health science and traditional healing methods to treat a wide range of health conditions.
