Unlike other forms of massage Lomi Lomi massage uses long flowing strokes that go from head to toe in a continuous, rhythmic movement massaging both the top and the underside of your body.
Hawaiian Ka Huna bodywork is a full body, free flowing, and dynamic form of massage therapy. It is a deeply healing and transformational massage which allows a process of simply observing your emotions without getting caught up in them.

During a Hot Stone Massage warmed stones are placed onto the body (such as the back, hands, etc.) and others are held by the massage therapist and used to work the muscles. The warmth in the stones is extremely relaxing to the muscles, allowing for a deep release in the muscle tissue.
Emotional Release Bodywork
Emotional Release Bodywork targets core mental/emotional issues being held in the body. Deep therapeutic massage techniques and use of emotional release trigger points, combine for a profound release of core energetic restrictions held in the body's cellular memory. Emotional Release Bodywork clears stored emotions or restrictions from our past issues and traumas along with inherited karmic/genetic memory of our ancestry.

Sand tray therapy is a form of expressive therapy that provides a space for contact with the inner, symbolic world. A basic premise of sand tray therapy is that the psyche possesses a natural tendency to heal itself, given the proper conditions. Sand Tray therapy allows a person to construct his or her own microcosm using miniature toys and sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of the person's own life and allows him or her the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self.
Play therapy is a form of counselling or psychotherapy that uses play to communicate with and help people, especially children, to prevent or resolve psychosocial challenges. This is thought to help them towards better social integration, growth and development, emotional modulation, and trauma resolution.

It refers to someone who offers emotional and physical support to a woman and her partner before, during and after childbirth. A doula believes in 'mothering the mother'. She enables a woman to have the most satisfying birth experience possible, from pregnancy and into motherhood.
Becoming a new mother is a challenging, rewarding, and effort-full time for women. Self-care becomes an integral part of transitioning through this beautiful phase in life with ease, joy and grace. Postnatal self-care invites mothers to create balance, receive support, connect with their baby and care for their whole self - mind, body and spirit.
Holistic counselling is a gentle and compassionate form of therapy that may help you help yourself when you feel the need for support or assistance. Holistic therapies approach disease and disorders as parts of a greater whole; mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Rather than treating just the symptoms, a holistic practitioner looks deeper and tries to uncover underlying causes.
Coaching in a transpersonal sense particularly means that throughout the process and within the power of the coaching relationship, you are truly honoured from the depth of your being and a space is created to listen to the voice of your soul.
Psychosomatic Therapy is the process between the psyche (mind/soul) and soma (the body). Body-mind communication exists within us every moment of our life, inside us and our awareness of our reactions outside us. The cellular memory created within the body internally, affects the mental, emotional and physical structure of the body formation and its actions and reactions, externally. This therapy is usually teamed with Emotional Release Bodywork.

Conscious Business Mentoring
Mentoring has been an effective practice for transferring knowledge and skills since the beginning of time. Life, professional and spiritual mentoring are just a couple of examples of mentoring. Many people are looking to those who have demonstrated the kinds of skills, knowledge and character to perform well - to be successful, to overcome obstacles and to grow as a person.
A mentor is someone who facilities growth and development - professionally, spiritually or personally - in another person by the sharing of experiences, insights, and skills that have been gained through the years of living and learning. A mentor is a model or an example for you to imitate in an effort to see certain desirable aspects of the mentors life reproduced in your own life. Through examining and practicing similar disciplines, employing the insight from the experience of the mentor, you are able to assimilate these skills, ideas and techniques faster than if they had to cultivate them themselves.
Depending on the skills, knowledge and experience being shared determine the posture the mentor will take. Mentors, depending on their own gifts and skills may choose to employ a combination of 'hats' to help you achieve your goals. Mentors are multifaceted in their role and techniques that are best suited to impart various skills and information.

Consistent daily meditation practice promotes the development of stability, inner calmness, and non-reactivity of the mind. The stability and non-reactivity we cultivate in formal practice supports our ability to become more compassionate human beings, experiencing the joys of pure non-reactive presence. By developing a simple awareness, we learn to disentangle ourselves from our habitual thoughts, emotions, and behaviours and connect with our experience, with ourselves, and with others in a healthier and deeper way.
Mindfulness Meditation is a practice of being fully and attentively present in the moment. During mindful meditation, we use the breath as an object of awareness. We follow the physical sensations of the breath as it flows in and out of the body. We allow the breath to flow naturally without controlling it.
This form of mindful movement meditation inspires you to draw your awareness down from your mind and into your body. Perfect for those who can't sit still, you are invited to turn your awareness inwards, moving your body consciously and breathing through each chakra point. A deeply clearing and energising meditation, which helps to release built up emotions or pent up energy from the body in a healthy and supportive way.
When we use sound during meditation we are able to go beyond the chattering mind and achieve a blissful state of mind. Tools such as singing bowls, bells, gongs and cymbals are utilised to have a positive effect on the body. Sounds created work in conjunction with the energy centres of the body, which aligns and enables the flow of chi (energy) throughout the body.
Yoga (all styles)
Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonising system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. The continued practice of yoga will lead you to a sense of peace and well-being, and also a feeling of being at one with their environment. The practice of yoga makes the body strong and flexible, it also improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and hormonal systems. Yoga brings about emotional stability and clarity of mind. In the practice of Yoga the ultimate aim is one of self-development and self-realisation.
One-on-one private yoga tuition gives you the opportunity to experience a practice tailored to your body, your goals, and your abilities. Your yoga teacher can help you make physical adjustments and assist you through your discovery of traditional yoga postures.

Zakay Glass Creations
Zakay Glass Creations Gallery in Bangalow, part of the Byron Bay Shire, are the leading artisan providers of striking contemporary glass sculptures and inspired lighting solutions that capture the interplay of light created by sacred geometric codes.
Unique and timeless, these stunning three dimensional art works are resplendent of sparkling gemstones: facets and symmetries shimmer as colours of the rainbow bounce off their bevelled edges when they are touched by natural and artificial light. Adding majesty to any space in which they are displayed, a Zakay keepsake regularly decorates homes, balconies, corporate foyers and hotels around the world. Founding artist Asaf Zakay's pursuit of creative and aesthetic excellence has resulted in three dimensional glass designs that capture the essence of nature. Using the stained glass technique (a process Asaf studied whilst in his native Israel) each magnificent creation is a sacred symbol, evolving from natural geometric patterns.
These glass formations merge the modern with the esoteric, as structural modernism gives form to internal reflections on love. Coming into presence with such work is a reminder of the profound harmony of sacred ratios - Zakay creations organically reference the same rules that the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci was painted by and the architectural design of the Parthenon was built.
The company portfolio now includes 20 different shapes using a variety of intricate bevelled methods - and has now also expanded to incorporate ground-breaking lighting within the sculptures along with a new range of handblown German glass bespoke range.
On his new relationship with light the artist only says 'It is like coming out of the shadows, a light is like a companion, you live with it, you build a relationship. It's much more than a source of light to me.'
