I am Laurel and I love helping people to re-write their health story, whether it’s a simple tweak that is needed or a major overhaul deep into the hidden recess of our human body, mind and spirit.




I’m especially passionate about the health of our gut, and our ability/inability to eliminate wastes. Leading to my special interest and experience in:

  • Correcting acute & chronic health conditions, especially tick-borne and a myriad of bacteria/parasite based conditions. I live in a ‘tick’ hotspot in Australia!
  • Restore digestive and gastrointestinal health…this is where all corrective care begins.
  • Mood disorders such as stress & anxiety and depression, again all with a root cause that’s deep in the gut-barrier. I have a special interest in Pyrrole disorder.
  • All aspects of hormonal dysfunction, healthy weight-loss and preconception care

We offer Studio accommodation for self-designed retreats, that is, you choose what you want and we’ll create it!

Here’s some options for your own Private Retreat:

  • Physical cellular detox: juice fasting with intensive inner terrain cleansing – colonics with herbal medicine detox options, add in some body work such as lymphatic drainage or ka Huna massage, your private studio has a far-infrared sauna, DIY body scrubs and clays can be purchased in the clinic dispensary.
  • Relax and unwind: book the Studio and add in any combination of body work, guided morning meditation in the Temple, Reiki/Energy balancing  and Sound Healing session(s)
  • Kambo intensives: these are generally over a 3 or 6-day programme treatment plan, add in a naturopathic consultation for a full top-to-toe analysis and take home care plan. Further options include Sound Healing session(s) and/or Shamanic body-based psychotherapy session(s).
  • Our accommodation is suitable for single person or a couple.

A little more about me:

I’m also a mother, grandmother and sister with a passion for ritual and magic, and for supporting my local and global community in stepping up to create a more sustainable world we’re we all support one another. One of my greatest passions is growing my own food and herbs, and I’ve recently been introduced to Syntropic farming from Brazil. This is a practise which creates a network of supportive fungi, regenerating the land in the way it ‘builds’ soil’ and increases crop yields. I’ve had fun combining a little of permaculture and a little of syntropic agroforestry on the land here in Maleny which is perfect as I offer food-as-medicine workshops which include getting your fingers into the Earth!

My journey in providing healthcare is built on a framework of experience derived from my background as a registered nurse with 30 years in the clinical setting; intertwined with BHSc in Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy, along with many modalities including Shamanic healing, reiki and massage, that come together to form an holistic model for healing at the level of the root-cause.

In 2016 I trained as a Kambo practitioner with IAKP, and earlier in 2018 qualifying as an Advanced practitioner. It is with Kambo, the amazing frog medicine from the Amazon that I’ve witnessed the MOST IMPRESSIVE shifts in restoring happiness and physical wellness & vitality in my clients.  More details here
