Meet the team
“I am passionate about providing total holistic care to the best of my ability and work to delve to the cause of an issue while providing a safe, caring and supportive environment.”
I have over 40 years experience in Acute Nursing including ICU, Surgical, Accident, Emergency and Oncology. More recently running an Oncology Rehabilitation Program including exercise and wellbeing talks. Alongside nursing I have taught at Ballarat University, in schools of Massage, Nursing, Aged Care and Beauty.
In 2000 I won a Scholarship to provide Massage, Aromatherapy and Meditation while nursing in the Oncology ward at St John of God Hospital, Ballarat. Since 2013 I have owned and practiced at Bringelli Natural Therapies from my beautiful Victorian property on corner of Lydiard and Howitt Streets in Ballarat.
I began studying complimentary therapies after two of my three children had brittle Asthma, Allergies, Dyslexia and ADHD caused by Allergies. I went on a steep learning curve after Traditional Western Medicine was not giving me the answers I needed. The training I undertook has lead me to where I am at present.
My training and own health issues have taken me far and wide to study and develop techniques that I now provide in my practice. My Western nursing background enables me to combine and use supportively both the best of Eastern and Western health.
“It gives me great pleasure to provide relief, relaxation, peace and joy to the incredible people we work with. I have a big interest in healing and energy work and I love that Jenny and this work enables me to grow and develop my skills.”
Prior to studying Massage Therapy in 2015/16, I spent 7 years working as a Youth Worker around Melbourne and Ballarat, predominantly in Homelessness. After giving birth to my son in 2013, I felt I was being drawn to helping people in another way. I sat with this for some time until it became clear that I wanted to become a Massage Therapist and upon commencing my study I found myself drawn to Bringelli Natural Therapies. It was at this point when I started to really follow my intuition.
I was very fortunate to be mentored by Jenny Cameron, which then lead to employment. Jenny has trained me in Lymphatic Massage, Reiki/healing, ear candling and providing facials.
