The Co – Founders
Kath Meade & Bex Whitehouse
After our own health issues caused a lot of emotional and physical anguish, we became extremely passionate about holistic wellness and helping others. We draw on our own personal experiences to share our knowledge and let you know you are not alone on your journey. We understand how overwhelming it can be trying to work out which path to take with so many health options available and then try to fit your choice into your already busy life. We are just like you, all individuals and there is no “one size fits all”. We believe in a sustainable and manageable wellness and that the key to a happier and healthier life is self-acceptance, which is a constant work in progress 🙂
We will be here for you, to keep you on your path to a happier, healthier you, with ongoing help, support and treatments. We look forward to meeting you.
Before Bex was introduced to the wellness world she spent her days in corporate. Studying at Canterbury University saw Bex qualify with a degree in commerce which quickly led her into the banking industry. Bex spent 5 years there before her health declined to the point where she was bedbound. Bex was determined to find the root cause of her mystery illness and spent the next four years studying all different modalities of healing and practicing her learnings on herself. The knowledge that Bex found through this healing journey saw her become extremely passionate about helping others do the same. This passion led Bex to complete her holistic health and nutritional coaching certification, and added to this with a spiritual diploma. Bex’s passion also led her to complete a 200hr teacher training course at Apollo Power Yoga New Zealand. Bex is an internationally recognised holistic health coach who lives with her partner and fur baby in Christchurch, New Zealand and loves to spend her spare time in the sunshine connecting with others.
Kath spent over a decade working on superyachts before settling and starting her own massage business in Mallorca after qualifying as a massage therapist in the United Kingdom in 2006. Since then, she has continued to further her knowledge, completing a variety of massage courses ranging from Thai massage, Chi Nei Tsang (stomach massage), lymphatic drainage and more to give her a better understanding of the body and different techniques to help alleviate various issues. Having a love for yoga, Kath decided to complete her Hatha 200hr teacher training course while in Rishikesh, India in 2015. Becoming a first time mum in 2017, she and her Kiwi partner decided New Zealand was the perfect place to raise their son and made Christchurch home in 2018.

What people are saying about us:
“The phrase “There’s a knot in my stomach”, turns out, can be many knots in the stomach. I’ve just experienced my first ‘Chi Nei Tsang’ abdominal massage. Although initially the thought of someone massaging my stomach made me feel a little awkward, as soon as Kath began, that feeling immensely dissipated, leaving me with what transpired to be an truly enlightening experience. I was shocked by the tension I’d been holding and how, as Kath progressed, not only did my abdomen feel more relaxed, but so too did my lower back and shoulders. Kath has truly been gifted with healing hands”

“Since working with Bex having her support every step of the way, I’ve become so much more confident in myself, I have a lot more self love and overall such a positive person. I have such a different mindset on life. If you ever want to reach out to Bex, I could not recommend her enough, she has helped me immensely and I will forever be grateful for her.”
