Sclerology is a diagnostic tool that observes and interprets the colorings and lines in the scleras. A non-invasive method that will confirm liver imbalance, diabetes, heart disease, inflammation, digestion imbalance – before the symptoms even appear.
As a qualified Fitgenes Practitioner, Mavis has the added advantage of being able to identify risk factors in chronic diseases. The personalised intervention programme shows clients how they can prevent that happening. Epigenetic environmental cleansing is the way of future health and wellbeing.Mavis believes strongly in the balance of body, mind and spirit using whole food and liquid nutrition. She consistently strives for personal optimal wellbeing. These are exciting times for people who really want high level wellness & unsure how to go about it.
As a young mother, I overcame my own chronic fatigue symptoms (cfs) of debilitating tiredness, headaches, pain and abstract misery. Having ‘done’ the medical ‘thing’ for some years without any long term relief, I chose to see a naturopath. Within two years I was healthier than ever before!
No drugs…no pain…fit enough to have two more children and return to the workforce. I am so grateful for my amazing level of health. It is from that place I have dedicated my role as a naturopath over the past 17 years to empowering families to live healthier, happier lives. I am well known for my talent of keeping it simple and achieving the results of long term health and energy.

Rose Carruthers – Access Consciousness™ Facilitator
Rose has been on a journey of personal and spiritual development her entire adult life. This includes attending various courses, devouring a myriad of books covering a wide range of topics, and extensive work, over a period of years, with an enlightening Spiritual Healer and Author named David Lane. It was this work with David that deepened Rose’s understanding of how our Universe operates at an energetic level. This inspired Rose to develop her own talents and abilities and to be a proactive part of raising the consciousness on our planet.
In 2009, Rose discovered Access ConsciousnessTM and found it to be a culmination of all the nuggets of Universal gold she has learnt over the years and more.
Rose proceeded to do the following courses: Bars, Foundation, Level 1 and Level 2 & 3 and continues to attend these classes as they are never the same twice. Rose has also attended a Bars Business workshop.
As an Energy Facilitator, Rose draws on all of her experience to guide any willing being to create the change in their life that they desire, whether it be physical, emotional, spiritual or otherwise. This is done by running your bars, verbal processing and/or using hands-on body processes.
Rose has a natural talent for ‘reading’ energy and uncovering the pieces you may have hidden from yourself that keep you stuck.
She has a genuine love of assisting people to overcome their personal obstacles, and a non-judgmental, truly caring and nurturing nature. Being of service to the Universe in this very personal way brings ease, joy and glory to Rose’s own life and for this she is totally grateful.

Laura-Jade Bennie – Bowen Therapist
Laura is a qualified Bowen Therapist registered with the Bowen Therapists Federation of Australia (membership Number: T17495). She recently moved from South Africa where she ran a successful private practice (Body Dynamics) treating conditions ranging from acute & chronic injuries to assisting sports men and women prepare for competition. She was an active member of The Bowen Association of South Africa (BowenSA) and held the position of Vice President from June 2015 – May 2017.
Bowen Therapy is a technique which was founded on osteopathic and Chiropractic principles. The technique uses a series of manipulations and adjustments over muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves and fascia to promote relief from Physiological, Musculoskeletal and related Neurological complaints.
The adjustments are designed to stimulate the body via the nervous, endocrine and fascial systems, activating the body’s own innate ability to self-regulate and heal.
The core principle of Bowen Therapy and Laura’s specific clinical approach is – “Structure governs function”. If the musculoskeletal system is structurally unsound the biomechanical and physiological function of the body will be impeded.
Rather than simply focusing on the affected area, Bowen Therapy utilises a holistic approach – addressing the entire body as a whole while still focusing specific attention on the ailment. This approach allows the therapy to address underlying causes as well as provide symptomatic relief.
Bowen Therapy is different to other adjustment techniques in that it doesn’t employ the use of joint manipulations. It is therefore easily adapted to treat anyone from new born babies to the old and frail, from pregnant women to professional athletes.
