Marguerite Carney - Massage Therapist

Marguerite’s Massage is an deeply healing full body massage, involving relaxation techniques focused on the whole person- mind, emotion, body. This allows one to align so that the nerves, or anxiety is not fighting the relaxation of the muscles for example, or visa versa. Marguerite’s massage supports all your “parts” to harmonise and work together toward smoother, longer lasting results. This massage forges a very safe, accepting environment for all of the systems and layers of your body to let go and remember the power of balance. This will increase and encourage circulation, eliminate toxins, and soothe the nervous system as well as instil hope cellularly. A perfect way to relax, rejuvenate and nurture your whole self.

Homeopathic First Aid

by Antoinette Bozanic.


When I started to study naturopathy I had no idea about homeopathy, I had heard of it but really never knew much about it at all.  During my course we were able to choose an elective subject and were provided with homeopathy and massage therapy, my option was to do massage therapy but unfortunately it was based on what everyone else in my class chose as well and the majority had opted for homeopathy.  Initially the lack of knowledge for this modality didn’t really inspire me much but the lecturer I had was a UK trained homeopath and it was into the semester of classes when she started speaking about planetary remedies that suddenly my attention was caught.  Having recently started my own spiritual journey and becoming aware that we were multidimensional beings and everything was energy, hearing suddenly that there were remedies called Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto really sparked an interest and after that I couldn’t get enough of homeopathy, so much so that I completed naturopathy and enrolled into a homeopathy course.

Love Meditation

by Jen Taylor.

The thing I enjoy most about meditation isn’t just the practice of creating more stilling of the mind but also the awareness of bringing mindfulness into everyday activities.  In fact my experience of having to sit for some time has been somewhat challenging, many I have spoken with also share this inner conflict.  With a preference for the body and mind to be more active, I have at times felt challenged by the idea of trying to still the mind.  From patience and consistency though, I have found that the benefits are profound and now too have proven scientific results.

Welcome to the World of [...]

by Debbie Bates.

My first experience of this profound complementary therapy was in 1999, I was pleasantly surprised as I felt a deep sense of relaxation moving through my body and afterwards, a state of calm as I moved back out into the world.  I was fascinated that points on the feet were connected to different parts of my body and through the session, felt stress falling away from my neck and shoulders.  It was after this session that I decided to undertake a practitioner’s course and while studying, my family and friends benefited as I practiced on them and that helped lessen their stress also - a win/win.

Every Body Loves Bowen

by Jen Taylor.

I meet many clients who come in to find some relief from the pain patterns & injuries which may be interrupting their daily routine.  It is common in our western culture to be used to needing a quick fix to be able to carry on with life.  It seems as a society we are not so keen at accepting the pain and addressing any feelings that may be underneath the pain.  There is such a drive to ignore pain or to reach for some kind of pain relief to be able to carry on with the daily routine.  Certainly, sometimes this is a necessary choice however, pain can be a wonderful signal in the body to help us to look at and address perhaps a wider set of problems.  The body is sending a message to look a bit closer and pay attention, if one chooses. 

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.
