Jenni Pocock
jenniReceptionist and Reconnective Healing Practitioner
"An unplanned life has tremendous beauty, because there is always some surprise waiting in the future" OSHO
 
A little insight into Jenni's story:
Imagine my surprise when, as a twenty something year old waitress slash binge-drinking barmaid with an eating disorder - without a clue, never mind a plan – I am suddenly informed by a Tarot Card Reader that I am scheduled to become a MASTER HEALER in this lifetime!!
Aforementioned tarot card reader slash psychometrist has taken hold of the ring I inherited from Auntie Gladys and is now rabbiting on about a past life in Ancient Egypt where I was apparently a High Priestess. As the story goes, I’ve had many lifetimes using just my mind power, but this time round, the totality of my being will become an instrument for healing. I don’t know how you would react, but by now I’m thinking this ring has possibly fallen onto the wrong hand; I mean, maybe Auntie Gladys had some secret powers that the family has failed to mention, but I certainly don’t. Or perhaps tarot card reader is simply not playing with a full deck of cards....But no, there she is, telling me all about my LIFE PURPOSE....and I didn’t even know there was such a thing!
This supposedly short biography is in danger of becoming a short novel, so let us just say that I did not immediately rush out and take up my purpose. I instead chose the scenic route with many detours along the way.
Fast forward twenty something years; there I am at a Reconnective Healing Seminar, feeling the reconnective frequencies when it suddenly hits me like a giant starburst – THAT TAROT CARD READER MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN PLAYING WITH A FULL DECK!!
It is with great pleasure that I join Bronwyn’s team and offer others the opportunity to experience Reconnective Healing.

Toni Nicol
toniBowen and Massage Therapist
Bowen Therapy is a very gentle muscular therapy that can effectively treat both muscular ailments, hormonal imbalances and improve overall wellbeing. At the heart of the technique are small, rolling moves performed on specific muscles, tendons and ligaments in the body. These moves relax the body, help muscles to realign to their correct position, and encourage the body's own healing capacities.


Toni's massage combines the most effective parts of many massage approaches including, therapeutic, remedial, deep tissue, reflexology, shiatsu, lymphatic, acupressure, swedish and Bowen. You will feel balanced, rejuvenated, calm and very peaceful.

Jessica Norris
jessMassage Therapist
Having travelled the last two years worldwide, Jessica decided to come to the Gold Coast to settle down and further her career in complementary therapies. She studied massage and nutritional therapy back at home in the UK, and has a passion for healthy living, surf, and good food! The Caribbean was her most recent home, where she worked on a very small island providing treatments for the local people and tourists. Her therapy ranges from very holistic based treatments to lymphatic drainage, trigger points and deep tissue massage - which target those sore and tense muscles. Jess believes every massage should be tailored for the individual as each and every one of us is different.

Lisa Acquisto
lisaTherapeutic Massage Therapist - specialising in therapeutic, remedial, shiatsu & reflexology treatments.
Lisa comes from a family of massage therapists. Her father, with whom she trained and worked, was known as the man with the magic hands. He practised until he was 78 years of age. She was extremely fortunate to work with such an extraordinary person.

In 2002, Lisa and her brother and began their own clinic, which is still flourishing 12 years later. In 2007 Lisa moved to Qld from Vic, and until recently she practised in both States. Now she is thrilled to join the Coolangatta Chiropractic Centre team on the Gold Coast.

Lisa believes that the body is best compared to a machine and for that reason must have regular maintenance. It is also fragile and vulnerable and must be treated with the utmost respect. For Lisa massage is a symbiotic relationship between patient and therapist, with the best results achieved when both work as one. She acknowledges that there are many types of healing, with each practitioner employing the methods in which they have been taught and trained. However, given we are all unique, as are the reasons we acquire ailments, we must persevere in finding the right treatment or right mix for our body to achieve the best results personally, on our quest to alleviate or heal our condition
