Bodywise Somatic Integration - Natural Body Wisdom
I am not satisfied treating symptoms or discomfort alone, I am interested in the underlying patterns and causes of challenges. Treatments are dynamic, draw on my many years of experience and training and combine a blend of techniques depending on your individual needs and situation. Health is a state of well-being, involving the body, mind, and spirit, and no part can be separated from the whole of who we are.
My journey into health care started at 13 after numerous horse riding falls caused injuries and a complex of spinal pain, headaches, hormone distrubtion, learning and focus issues and emotional stress. My early experiences of chiropractic-osteopathy provided much-needed relief and started of a life-long journey.
My studies in Melbourne and London continued with a Grad Dip in Dance and Movement, Craniosacral Therapy, Bowen Technique, Alexander Technique, embodied somatic practices. I worked in rehabilitation, lectured in the chiropractic and osteopathic programs at RMIT and worked as a clinical associate before establishing my own multidiscipline practice in Melbourne. Motherhood led to my tree change and the creation of Healing Well in Castlemaine. My desire to share with others led to my studies in Coaching and the creation of Lifewise Coaching Mind and Body. Our journey to New Zealand and studies in traditional Maori medicine and rongoa were a blessed opportunity for learning and growth.
Five years ago I created Lifewise Coaching Mind and Body and I have just launched Bodywise Somatics.
I now coach and mentor people from all walks of life supporting personal growth and professional development.
