Offerings at Wellness Movement
Be empowered to take an active role in your own health care
Restorative Exercise
Restorative Exercise is the movement education you wished you had learnt years ago. It is a whole-body approach to learning how you move, restoring lost movement through corrective exercises and then applying these new skills to our whole lives, not just within the exercise setting.
Feldenkrais
Feldenkrais improves the brain's capacity to organise movement, allowing you to move with greater ease, power and confidence. It has the potential to enhance any activity in life that involves movement.

Experience the benefits in a group class or in a personal session (hands-on).

Massage
Holistic/Classic/Swedish massage uses a mixture of techniques to work on the soft tissues of the body - to relieve stress (emotional or physical), release tension and further general well-being.
Qigong
A gentle form of exercise, Qigong works on the whole of life by aligning the physical movements with the mind & the breath. The benefits of exercise increase exponentially when these dimensions are added.
Practicing Yuan Qigong helps increase mental clarity, improves internal strength and stability and helps us understand the patterns of thought that inadvertently support illness and negative emotions.

Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine is the traditional healing form of all cultures and is still recognised in many parts of the world as the first medicine. Modern science increasingly supports the use of herbs for health as we come to understand their gentle yet effective nature. Treating the whole person and addressing many health conditions, herbal medicine has incredible potential to restore wellness and vitality.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle yet profound non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table, the client remains fully clothed and the touch is light and still. The treatment focuses on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system.
Wellness Workshops
Watch for updates! Wellness Movement welcomes the sharing of knowledge and experience through one off or regular workshops. These are a great way to dip your toe into the waters of a new subject, or deepen your understanding of a topic. Our resident practitioners, or guest teachers from afar, will be presenting an exciting array of inspiring and cutting edge material.
Herbal Dispensary
Our foyer area is home to The Nelson Herbal Dispensary. Here you can have a short over-the-counter chat with a herbalist to address an acute health condition and have a herbal tincture formulated on the spot, or pick up a herb tea, shampoo bar, or tonic vinegar among other things. Find a cool Chia drink in the fridge for after your movement session.
Reflexology
A lovely, relaxing treatment that promotes well-being and can also assist in the healing of ailments. Reflexology recognises that the anatomy of the body is reflected on reflex zones on the feet. Reflexology works by stimulating these reflex points through precise movements, to help bring about balance and trigger the body's natural response to heal and relax.


Polarity Therapy
Polarity Bodywork sessions are conducted fully clothed and involve soft touch as well as point specific touch, with the intention of supporting our natural health. A gentle & nurturing session focused on energetic balance & bringing one back to center.
