Working with a wide range of clients from all ages, backgrounds, personal issues and experiences, offering talking and energy therapies she seen the need to extend wellness offerings furthering, focusing on both mind and body. Inspired by collective client of presentations of stress, chronic conditions, overwhelm and mental health, the idea of offering a self accessible safe space for mind + body, that users could lean on when needed seemed a necessity.
"When dealing with chronic pain and mental health it can be frustrating to wait on appointments, we can't predict a dip in our health, whether that be mental or physical, therefore, having a local wellness studio that promoted holistic healing, which could be accessed "as and when needed" seemed the perfect protective factor to support the community in their wellness journey.

Chronic pain and mental health doesn't follow the clock of society, nor does it have a calendar, by offering self accessible appointments we are able to offer users access to studio as and when they need, whether this is for rest,
recovery or a reset we endeavour to meet clients as they are, and as they need'.
