OSTEOPATHY with Benjamin
Our Resident Master Practitioner Benjamin Pluke M. OST comes from a long line of body healers. His work focuses on balance and the movement of joints, organs and circulation.
He works with the structure and function of the body based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on the alignment of skeletal and muscular system.
Osteopaths use touch, massage, stretching and physical manipulation to increase joint mobility, ease muscle tension, enhance blood and nerve supply to the tissues and activate the body’s own healing mechanism.Enquire Now
Naturopathy with Ashmina
Our Resident Naturopath Ashmina Manolidis ND works on finding balance in mind, body and spirit to help people live their life to the fullest through naturopathy, iridology, craniosacral therapy and more.
Her naturopathic philosophy is to treat the cause, not the symptom. She believes the body contains a healing ability which can be stimulated by the correct nutrients, fresh air, adequate rest and relaxation, a positive attitude and peace of mind.
Therapy may include dietary changes, herbal medicine and nutritional medicine, as well as lifestyle changes to optimise health and aid recovery.Enquire Now
Bodywork with Morag
With over 20 years' experience, our visiting Bodywork expert Morag McDowall is passionate about helping people reset their health through myofascial, sports massage and craniosacral therapies.
Craniosacral therapy supports the body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself through light-touch, where Myofascial Release (MFR) is a gentle but incredibly powerful soft tissue therapy which provides sustained but gentle pressure to the body to eliminate pain and restore movement.
Additionally, myfascial release can help alleviate symptoms related with TMJ to include pain and stiffness caused by clenching the jaw and grinding teeth.Enquire Now
