"Its all about treating the MIND and BODY together" Whether you have a physical problem such as chronic and recurring pain, stiffness, poor posture, digestive problems, weight gain, poor brain function or an emotional problem such as, anxiety, fear, depression, too much worry, or just feeling overwhelmed and feeling there is too much to cope with. The mind and body affect one another. Good health is all about having a balance. When there isn't balance in your life something has to give.
Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves, given the right conditions. But its about knowing how to get to the right conditions, before healing can take place.

All our Therapists below are highly regarded in their fields.

Just to give you a bit of information about who I am. I have been working as a Remedial Massage Therapist, Remedial Therapist, and Holistic Kinesiologist for the last 25years.
I spent 11 years working in a large Private Physiotherapy Practice which was attached to a Private Hospital at Potts Points, Sydney, providing Massage Therapy, for the Rehabilitation of Musculoskeletal and Post - Surgical Orthopaedic injuries.
I then spent 10 years in private practice in Sydney Eastern Suburbs.
From 2007 - 2013 I was a therapist at "North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre" in Crows Nest, Sydney, where i was part of their team for 7 years providing Remedial Massage, and Holistic Kinesiology to patients.
My practice thrived. The combination of hands on massage with Kinesiology (which looks at the relationship between mind and body) gave me a cutting edge, it enabled me to look underneath the physical symptoms to find the underlying cause, to facilitate healing.
I have worked in conjunction with Rehabilitation Doctors, Sports Medicine Physicians, Specialist Doctors, General Practitioners, Exercise Physiologists, Sports and Clinical Physiotherapists

Dance Movement Therapist
In her work Louise seeks to relate closely with each individual.
Her therapeutic style is founded on the principle of engaging directly with the client. This process anticipates a heartfelt encounter grounded in the individual’s aspiration, to lead a meaningful natural and creative life.
Louise would sum up her personal philosophy as “The effort is to be oneself”. This has variously been described as the process of individuation or integration.
Louise works with her imagination and sees the role of therapist as both handmaiden and catalyst. She uses well established techniques involving movement and creative play as tools, that enable the individual to explore their intuition and attend to the inner voice. Thus one might grow in confidence and determine on a path that represents an authentic life choice.
Louise believes in creating a supportive environment that encourages the clients curiosity. She is most concerned with the need to help clarify the responsibility of being truly human.
She holds an Advanced Diploma Gestalt Psychotherapy & Certificate Dance Therapy and is a Graduate member of GANZ.
