About me

With almost three decades of experience in the natural therapy industry, Kelli takes an integrative medicinal approach to health and wellness, embracing the traditions of both Eastern healing modalities and Western health science.

She believes true healing comes from focusing on the whole person not just the symptom, and in supporting her clients towards sovereignty over their own health.

Kelli uses a combination of Chinese Medicine Philosophy, Zen Shiatsu, Yoga Therapy, Food as Medicine and ... Mindfulness in her practice, guiding people to trust their inner wisdom to improve their health.

Studying and experiencing the positive health effects of Zen Shiatsu Therapy and Macrobiotics at an early age sparked Kelli’s life-long passion in Eastern healing modalities.

With an in-depth knowledge of traditional oriental medicine, acupressure point therapy and the five element meridian system, Kelli’s treatments involve a unique fusion of movement, breath and meditative postures to promote health, harmony and well being.

Using evidence-based treatments, Kelli addresses imbalances, providing personalised nutritional guidance; treats mental health issues like anxiety and depression, and has a strong interest in cosmetic acupuncture, which treats external conditions for internal problems. Her yoga and nutrition sessions provide a roadmap for better health.

Kelli’s ultimate aim is to get clients to reconnect with their natural state of health, peace, and joy. By releasing tension and balancing the internal energy system this will create a pain-free and energised body, mind, and spirit.

Kelli has an interest in social justice and hopes in the future to offer her healing modalities to people in the community who need it the most.
