Welcome to Intrinsic Mind Holistic Health & Wellness
My Intrinsic Mind HOLISTIC HEALTH AND WELLNESS. Believe, Achieve, Succeed.
If you were wondering as to why we chose the name Intrinsic Mind, the term ‘intrinsic’ refers to the essential nature of a living thing. Humans have an in-built desire to improve themselves and that all people have the ability to make their own free choices. However, at times we may waver and become misdirected from our ambitions due to some physical, mental, or emotional issues. Negative thoughts patterns or poor behaviour are the primary reasons that hold us back from making positive changes and reaching your goals.
Intrinsic motivation comes from deep within; it involves engaging in behaviour because it is personally rewarding. This is why we are here to help as your individual coach and assist you to reach your goals by reawakening your innate, natural desires and helping you to increase your intrinsic motivation to succeed in achieving your desired outcome. When you observe the by-products of your hard work, it will increase your motivation to new heights and land you closer to your goals. We will not be doing the work for you, you will be doing that yourself, we will help you to improve your skills, provide support, and offer small nudges required to kick off that journey. When you come to visit us, it means that you are ready to change and that you have taken the first intrinsically minded steps towards success.

What is Mental Health First Aid?
Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing a mental health problem, or who is in a mental health crisis (e.g., the person is suicidal or has had a traumatic experience).
Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.
Mental health first aid strategies are taught in evidence-based training courses authored by Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia and delivered by accredited MHFA Instructors across the country. Intrinsic Mind offers Standard MHFA Courses and MHFA for Gambling Problems as authored by MHFA Australia, delivered by Instructors who are currently accredited by MHFA Australia.
MHFA is an award winning program and is included in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidenced-Based Programs and Practices
What is Thai Yoga Massage
Thai yoga therapy is a healing art, prominently known as The traditional Thai Yoga Massage, that roots back to the days of Buddha—about 2,500 years ago.
This therapeutic art was directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurvedic medicine. The father founder of Thai Yoga Massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha was a renowned doctor and yogi, he treated the Buddha, among others. After the Buddha’s death, the earliest Buddhist monks travelled to Southeast Asia and were accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors. These doctors practiced a healing art, that would later evolve into traditional Thai Massage.
Thai Yoga Massages are performed on a mat on the floor. The practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures and gentle stretching while palming and thumbing along the body's "sen" (energy lines) and pressure points. This relieves muscular tension, increases circulation and balances the body by unblocking and dispersing energy.
I currently hold sessions at Yuj Life Community in Glen Osmond or in Prospect 5 minutes from the city in our home. As you can see below in the photos, the comfort is amazing, with a heated mat during sessions in winter and a vibrancy of energy and cooling during summer.
