Finally a Physio with real hands on treatment skills & realistic management plans.I always learn something new about my body, mind & health after every session. I'm ever so grateful for her kindness & outstanding skills as a practitioner.
That being said, I would highly recommend Kara to anyone ready to take the next step in their health & vitality.” ~ Lou Page
“I was fortunate enough to have someone recommend Kara to me for a back complaint over 6years ago now. How lucky I was. Being a trained physio, she understands the musculoskeletal system of our bodies extremely well and uses that knowledge expertly when it comes to the practice of her massage therapy. I would highly recommend Kara's services to anyone.” ~ Paul Gaffney
Kara is a dedicated and experienced body worker. She has a wealth of knowledge in the wellness arts which shines through in her treatments and classes. I thoroughly recommend her." - Adrienne Bail

“Emerging from the workshop, I feel more full and connected with the realisation that my emotions are energetic signposts that guide the way to deeper learning.

Kara spoke so well that time just flew by and it [the workshop] could have been longer.” ~ Viv Barry

SOME KIND WORDS FROM MY MASSAGE CLIENTS...
“Of all the massages I’ve had, including some of the most expensive resort spa’s I’ve been to, yours is the most superior. It’s the mixture of your Physio and massage but every time I’ve been, whether it’s for my hip, back, shoulder or knee, you’ve put me on track.” - Wayne Morris.
“I LOVE Kara’s massages! With her years of expertise in Physio and her Counselling background, Kara’s gifts of intuition, empathy and understanding can really support me on every level. I always leave Kara’s massages feeling like I’ve been put back together again! Thanks Kara.”
- Janet McGeever – Counsellor, Journey Therapist, “The Being Love Retreats” www.theconsciousheart.com
“After I had my three kids I became so preoccupied with their care and ignored my own health… my shoulders and back became so painful it was limiting the healthy and active life I wanted to lead with my family. You Kara have become such a key person in my “support network”. When I feel myself starting to struggle physically I know it is time to book in. I now realise massage is actually a massive investment in my current and future physical wellbeing, for both myself and my kids. Your massages allow me to switch off completely and I always leave feeling relaxed and energised and know that you have targeted the areas of my body most in need of attention.”
- Clare Derrington – Mother, Wife & Physiotherapist
MEET SOME OF MY RAW FOOD ENTHUSIASTS
“Thank you so much for a fascinating day at your most recent Raw Luncheon. I have recently completed a weight loss program and although I have lost the weight I have been feeling nutritionally depleted. During the few hours spent with you, I learnt about the goodness of raw organic foods and importantly how to incorporate them into daily life. The dishes you prepared for us were absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to try your recipes and also to experiment with some of my own. I feel I now have the skills to choose a more nutritious way of eating.” - Chris, Sunshine Beach
“Kara’s enthusiasm and passion for raw food is very contagious! Which is delightful! And genuine!
The amount of information Kara shared was HUGE. The food seemed to appear effortlessly and easily with each recipe being exciting (with the colour, texture, taste of goodness and yumminess). I know for me, the most wonderful benefit is the inspiration I took away from that day. I can see such a huge ripple effect from what Kara is presenting so beautifully. I am inspired, I try her recipes, I support the local farmers, my health improves and on it goes! Kara you are a blessing! Keep up your wonderful enthusiasm and spread your knowledge and love of raw food.” - Suzie Donkin, Sunshine Beach
