Lovely staff, amazing service... Beautiful Molly the dog sometimes greets you at reception with her big, bright eyes and calm and peaceful quiet nature.
I was carrying around chronic pain that I thought I would never get rid of. I’m managing to stay pain-free through the week now and I’m over the moon!
I am amazed and awe struck at how massages can be deeply intuitive, powerful and effective.
- S.A.
I felt safe, heard, validated and a little less alone.
Truly the best therapeutic and deep relaxation massage I have had. Highly recommended!
Fantastic practitioners. Gorgeous rooms. Owned & operated by a locally-living Goddess of sorts. This place is a real wellness centre!
Everyone who works here is full of knowledge and I love the happy vibes.
Hands down the best massage I’ve ever had. Have already booked in for my next one.

Our therapists LOVE working together to get the best results for YOU!

cannabisOne thing we’ve been doing since forever is advocating for the use of plant-based medicines – including cannabis and psilocybin – for the everyday treatment of appropriate conditions.

So many of our clients have reported self-medicating with these medicines over the years that we are in no doubt as to their efficacy for many mental and physical health conditions. And the scientific evidence is finally catching up!

While we don’t prescribe these medicines ourselves, we love to refer and support clients to receive plant medicines from prescribing practitioners.

Our experience tells us that plant-based medicines can be of assistance in managing conditions such as

  • Anxiety disorders
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Long covid
  • Immune conditions
  • Gut problems
  • Muscle tensions
  • Headaches
  • Back pain

Chiropractic for shoulder painIf you’re a human currently using plant-based medicines to manage a health condition, you can be sure that our therapists will support your choice and offer you excellent adjunctive therapy.
