ABOUT ME

My Journey So Far... 

Haha, where do I start?

Throughout my childhood, I felt a deep passion for trying to understand how things work. Especially the biological sciences, the human body, and nature! As well as enjoying everything to do with the ocean, nature, and sports. I also believed at a young age that there was always something more to life which we could not explain. I have always felt compassion towards others for as long as I can remember, which lead me to dabble in different forms of spirituality and healing modalities such as Mirimiri, Rongoa, and meditation throughout my early years. 

My childhood was full of challenges and learning lessons from an early age, during that time, I was trying to fit into the norms of society, which lead me down a different path. So I ended up working in the trades sector and also did a short period in the military. However, during this period, something was missing...

Passion and a loss of self...

 

After I left the military when I was twenty-one, I went through a deep reflection phase and got back to what mattered to me, looking at my passions of childhood. I decided I was either going to study to be a doctor, physiotherapist, or a Registered Nurse.

 

I graduated the bachelors of nursing in 2012, then later completed a postgraduate diploma in nursing science, (I did plan to continue to be a nurse practitioner, however, my path changed again about 3 years ago).

 

As a nurse, I have worked in Aged care, Medical, Surgical, Vascular, ENT, Community Nursing, and currently as a Travel Nurse in Australia. Being in the medical/nursing profession for this length of time, I started to notice there was much more that meets the eye. Concerning our health, wellbeing & prevention of illness, & disease.

 

Which leads me to the present. About 3 years ago, I was very fortunate to stumble across a little gem! I attended a surfing retreat in the Philippines. It was called the freedom and flow retreat, lead by Nathan and Joveline Head and their amazing family! Part of the package included Taoist meditations, qigong, lots of surfing, and mobility.

Initially, I only went for surfing, R&R, and location at that time. Everything else was a bonus!

 

But what I didn't know at that time, this would change my life! 

Nathan introduced me to these very different Taoist meditations, qigong techniques, and also Chi Nei-Tsang.

Suddenly all the knowledge and patterns I had recognized throughout my life and nursing career made sense! You could say it was some form of enlightenment! 

 

As a result of a newly expanded awareness, I explored different alternative health therapies in eastern methodology.

After a lot of trialling and testing, I found that I had to change my course in life, as I had to share the unbelievable benefits of Chi Nei Tsang- Abdominal Massage, Tok Sen, Massage, energetic healing, and the Taoist meditations.​

From this point, I have continued to focus my energy on the practice of alternative health and healing. I was very fortunate to be able to travel to Thailand to do further training with Mantak Chia and gaining certification as a Chi Nei-Tsang practitioner and other healing modalities such as Tok Sen, Thai herbal ball massage, Reiki Training with Melissa Crowhurst, and a Massage therapy course, To finish what I started when I was younger.

In doing this extra learning and development, I feel it is my passion and purpose in this lifetime to help aid humanity and this earth in more natural ways! Being able to pass this information on is very fulfilling to me! I am hoping I can help people, so they can live more fulfilling lives! By helping them connect with what really matters to them!

 

I would be delighted to help you through your journey in life in whatever way I possibly can!

 

LOVE, LIGHT, GRATITUDE & JOY!
