Shekinah Leigh, Gold Coast, QLD Shekinah Leigh, Gold Coast

Shekinah Leigh - Kahuna Massage Therapist

Hi, I am Shekinah, KaHuna bodywork therapist at Sacred Ground on the Gold Coast. I am certified in Kahuna Bodywork, Yoga Instruction and am a "Rites of Passage" Mentor. At Sacred Ground I support women to embrace their true feminine energy through amazing, nurturing, yet powerful, Kahuna massage.

As a mother, daughter and lover I understand the many challenges that women face. I believe I can provide you with a safe and sacred space to 'let go' and embrace your unique feminine energy, because I have journeyed through the realms of control, repression of emotions and surrender myself.

Drawing on my knowledge and practice of Native American Teachings, Hawaiian Shamanism and the Yogic traditions I guide my clients in connecting with their physical, emotional and spiritual bodies to release and create flow. It is my intention to provide women with a strong and safe space for transformation & healing at a deep and cellular level.

My style of massage incorporates music, movement, energy work and the spirit of Aloha (love), to unblock tight areas and promote flow as the body is stimulated on all levels. I aim to leave you feeling balanced, grounded and reintegrated like no other massage you've experienced before!

All that I do comes from my heart's desire to honour, embrace, celebrate and empower the feminine within..

Wendy Rice, Gold Coast, QLD Wendy Suzanne, Gold Coast

Wendy Rice – Client Reception and Vibrational Sound Practitioner

A warm hello! My name is Wendy and I feel so blessed being part of the team here at Sacred Ground wearing two hats. I am here to welcome you as Client Reception and I am also a Vibrational Sound Practitioner, sharing healing sound for small groups and individual attunements.

I love being part of the healing energy, genuine warmth and caring that is bestowed on everyone who enters this sacred space.

I use some beautiful instruments for sound healing including unique Japanese Singing Bowls with sustained harmonic overtones. They can be used directly on the body to calm, gently harmonise and balance the body's vibration and energy system. I am a certified practitioner of my singing bowls and I have also completed a Certificate of Sound and Music Healing. My goal is to help clients to slow down, connect within, feel calmer, clearer, more centred and grounded and at peace, ultimately to feel happier.

Kristen Luby, Gold Coast, QLD Kristen Luby, Gold Coast

Kristen Luby – Dip Kinesiology, B. Exercise Sci, M. Physiotherapy – Kinesiologist

Hi, I am Kristen, Gold Coast Kinesiologist at Sacred Ground. With over 10 years clinical experience as a Musculoskeletal Physio I have had much success working with my client's and their physical structure. However, I have always known that there is more to healing than the physical body. Working with all aspects of Self: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual allows resolution at a deeper level, true healing and evolution. I have discovered that by combining my scientific knowledge and evidence based experience with the ancient eastern influences of Kinesiology and supporting my clients to connect to their own innate self healing potential, anything is possible.
