Reiki is a Japanese healing modality. Reiki involves an understanding that we are more than just our physical selves. We are energetic beings which incorporate our emotional, physical and spiritual selves. The process of hands on healing via the energy centres in our bodies (chakras) provides relaxation, healing and an opportunity for us to let go of stress at a subconscious level.
Neuro-Training is a healing modality which follows principles of Kinesiology. Muscle testing, pressure points and meridians are used to assess and improve health and wellbeing. Both work towards relaxation, healing and letting go of stress.

Lee Ann Green – Tai Chi Instructor
Mika Hatano – Remedial Massage
Along with nutritional advice, Liana will examine your physical and psychological well being. Treating the body needs to be done in a holistic way that looks at each person as an individual. Liana believes that everybody is different so each and every body should be treated as such.
Liana’s interest in cooking began as a young child when she would often help her mother in the kitchen and frequent the local farmers markets picking out her favourite fruits and vegetables.
Her passion for nutrition and health was sparked even further when she was living abroad and her brother gave her a book on vitamins and minerals. After reading the book cover to cover in a matter of days, she decided to move home and enrol in a nutrition degree.
Her interest in gut health came from her own battles, journey’s, and realisation that most disease states start from a disrupted GIT system. Liana’s fascination for learning didn’t stop when she left university, she has attended many conferences including the three day Metagenics gut health symposium this year, obtaining the latest and most applicable diagnostic techniques and dietary advances that she has applied to her practice.
Liana is also an avid public speaker, giving talks and workshops across the country and spreading the word on good health and eating. After all ‘Every time you eat or drink you are either feeding disease or fighting it’ – Heather Morgan.
Virginia Kirton – Yoga Instructor & Therapist
Once upon a time Virginia worked as an architect and urban sociologist. For the past 15 years she has been privileged to teach yoga and practice as a yoga therapist. First introduced to yoga at 16, her personal practice waxed and waned for two decades. Then she got really serious. Her focus is on traditional raja yoga – paying attention to her attitudes, her physical, mental and emotional well-being and seeking faith in what is beyond her understanding, Buddhist loving kindness practices support my journey.

Pamela Watson – Counselling & Spiritual Companioning
Pamela has developed her work in Soul consciousness over many years. From an early beginning in a Methodist and later Baptist Christian tradition she has gone on to explore many of the ancient religions where spirituality comes to a central point in Divine Energy (God) from many different paths and perspectives. Pamela has developed her love of ritual as a celebrant, creating rituals to enrich the lives of her clients as they negotiate important life transitions. She brings this rich and diverse knowledge to her work as a nurse in Palliative care, end of life planner, advocate, teacher and counsellor. She has formed a group working under the umbrella of a small company ‘Lotus Unfolding of Life’ where the concept of living consciously/dying consciously is explored through discussion, meditation and work with universal energies. Having been on a path of spiritual discovery for many years she is now experiencing this life where Love, Abundance and a profound connection to Divine Energy is a daily reality.
With an M.A. in spiritual direction, Joan brings a keen interest in spiritual formation offering spiritual direction and retreats. Joan loves being with people attending to the presence of God and fostering a discerning heart. It is here that faith forms our action and lives are transformed.
