Deep Heartfelt and Mindful Living. Still, present, open, healthy, happy and balanced energy levels. I focus on restorative, pain alleviating, energy giving and integral transformative practices. With deep embodied relaxation an effective celebratory approach arrises to the ordinary and the extraordinary aspects of our lives naturally.




Hello, welcome to my site, I'm glad you've stopped by seeking vitality support and inspiration. I work with individuals and groups on a spectrum from specific chronic health issues to carefree exploration.

In health, as a holistic practitioner and birth doula, I guide, coach and consult in the areas you can find in the tabs above. For more details of my services please click on the modalities you are interested to book into with me.

About me: Love, abundant health and a fascination with this phenomenon of existence drive me. The mystery held within being alive, multi and inter cultural life philosophies, world travel from a young age, over coming personal illness, life changes and challenges have shaped and inspired my personal development .

For over 16 years my personal mind, body and spirit practice has lead me to study an array of health modalities from gifted and recognised teachers in Australia and abroad. So far I have been able to overcome chronic illness, physical pain, increase my awareness, shift my consciousness, let go of baggage, reclaim a peaceful nervous system and enhance the natural flow in my whole body. This has allowed new levels of vitality, awareness and gratitude. It has deepened my way of relating to all life and most poignantly to my own intimate inner happiness. I have had the honour of supporting many people to do the same.

I work instinctually, intuitively, emphatically and creatively. I have a passion for knowledge, wisdom and adventure. I experience and explore the direct link between our human capacity to deeply nurture ourselves first, then others and simultaneously this beautiful planet earth.

I seek to meet my clients where they are at and or assist them to become aware of where they are at. Healthy balanced body and mind, releasing tension, being inspired, new learnings, transformation, acknowledgment, creativity, enjoyable maintenance and community sharing are outcomes.

Bio energetic medicine, bio medical nutrition, meditation, relaxation, qi gong, acu-energetics, gestalt counselling, authentic movement, art, sound research and music have my attention and curiosity. I approach one to one and group facilitation in a grounding, integrating manner within the heart and or head of the present matter.

I am loving womanhood. Being able to support people, friends and family over the years has given me deeply experiential and nourishing discoveries. These discoveries when integrated and embodied have culminated as a solid connection to my inner resources. These are the skills that I engage in my wellness practice and that I offer to you. I have experience in working with all ages and types of people from all walks of life.

I see each birth, of a new baby, or each new step towards greater health as a beautiful expression of gratitude for being alive. Sometimes we have to face the shadows that arise and optimally this can be done prior to the emergency stage. We are unique even in an overpopulated world. There is no one exactly like us. This I sense is something of value and worth honouring. I have had the fortune to see wild blossoming happen with quality support, continuity of care, skills, imagination, life experience, laughter, fun, trust, patience, an integration of eastern and western medical models, self listening, imagination, practical and technical knowledge and of course good old fashion attention to detail.

Thank you for your enquiry today. I look forward to hearing from you 0434 504 878.

If you would like more info and or to stay in touch, I invite you to also connect with me via my FACEBOOK page: Lia Smith Health/ Wellness website. All the best Lia
