Great for releasing cranium pressure, relieving stress, increasing circulation and encouraging relaxation.

Therapeutic Massage

We take a personalized approach to your therapeutic massage needs to optimize recovery and well-being. Therapeutic massage is excellent for alleviating pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, stress, and promoting health and wellbeing.

Aromatherapy Massage

A deeply relaxing full body aromatherapy massage that diffuses and uplifts you physically and mentally. Attention is focused upon the hands, feet, and head. Gentle stretching and a continuous flowing massage grounds you energy. Kneading of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments)  improves muscle tone, increases circulation, improves flow of nutrients to body tissues, promoting elimination of waste products, and relieving tension.  We use only 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants.


Deep Tissue Neuromuscular

An intense form of bodywork which consists of focused, concentrated massaging on one specific area of the body. The pressure may continue for a period of up to thirty seconds at a time. It is designed to alleviate tension that extends from a “trigger point” out to an entire muscle.

Personalised for mum and baby. To optimize the benefits, whatever mum feels appropriate we tend to. Prenatal massage helps guard against anemia, leg cramps, backaches, edema and fatigue.  It can shorten labour and enhance the quality of one’s sleep.

CranioSacral Therapy

A very gentle and  light touch that releases tensions in the central nervous system. It promotes all systems in the body to relax, realign and free itself of discomfort. You are fully clothed during the session and the work is focused on the head and sacrum.


Pamper your feet with a delicious foot massage.  Lay back and enjoy the stimulating effect of your feet being exfoliated, massaged and wrapped in hot towels and topped off with a hydrating peppermint moisturizer which will leave your feet feeling fluffy and light.

Zen Chi

The rhythmic body movement of the Zen Chi exerciser stimulates the body, opens the vertebrae, and gently exercises every joint in the body, alleviating stress and tension in the spinal column. Its unique wavelike motion replicates exercise (equivalent to a 4 kilometer run) and promotes the flow of blood to the capillaries in all extremities of the body, increasing circulation. Body detoxification is improved via enhanced lymphatic circulation and abdominal peristalsis. A  great way to enhance your energy flow.


Reiki Energy Work

A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands”. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A Reiki session includes Crystal Healing and Essential Oils, as one package.

Amanda has been practicing with natural healing abilities since a small child and followed a calling to train as a Reiki Master and Reflexologist in England. Since being in New Zealand she has since trained in Cranial Sacral Therapy. She uses an intuitive technique of combined Reflexology and Reiki or Cranial Sacral Techniques to draw out negative and stuck energy in the body that causes disease and then balances the person’s health. By working directly on the nervous and Cranio Sacral system this treatment removes the body’s toxins that have built up, and cause disease. Reflexology boosts the immune system to help it prevent the illness and imbalance from reoccurring in the future, Cranial Sacral therapy is excellent for MIgraines, Conditions and a healthy Spinal Column and Brain. Amanda’s main aim is to empower people to self-heal and give them tools to live a healthful life. Amanda specializes in cases of Depression, Stress, Anxiety, OCD, Childhood issues, Migraines, and Female reproductive conditions such as Endometriosis. The treatment is relaxing and deeply healing, she works on the feet and head and uses essential oils and crystals.

Good health and lifestyle is a harmonious balance of physical, emotional mental and spiritual wellbeing and Chinese Medicine Acupuncture allows me to provide holistic treatments that treat the whole person, not just the presenting symptoms or disease. I have worked as a Physiotherapist for over 20 years and have been practicing acupuncture for over 18 years (Western initially and now Traditional Chinese Medicine). M Health Prac, Post Grad Dip MT, Dip Phys.

Barbara and Tony Reardon

“Happiness is not a commodity: it cannot be bought or sold. We cannot compete for happiness, win it, grab it, go for it, or achieve it through a force of will. Happiness is emotional satisfaction, the by-product of a life lived with care and skill.”

Barbara and Tony are Registered Psychotherapists trying to embody these words of a favourite teacher, for themselves and the individual adults, adolescents, couples, groups and supervisees who attend as clients.

Barbara: “I have so far had 30 years of working with individuals, with relationships, with businesses and with therapeutic groups. My anxious tendencies and need to integrate and reconcile my history led me to psychotherapy, as a client, and as a practitioner.”

Tony: “Formerly making my living as an artist, training as a psychotherapist was a natural development of attending to my own growth and healing. I’m particularly interested in facilitating the ability of those who come to see me to attend to their own growth and development. In recent years teaching clients the skill of mindful attention to the present moment –called Mindfulness – has become central to my way of working.”
