Deb

Biodynamic & Biomechanic Craniosacral therapist

Originally from the UK, I’ve been in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years having studied both internationally and here in New Zealand. Since being in New Zealand I have taken Health and Wellness lectures for corporates, lectured in health, anatomy and remedial massage therapies alongside having my own business. 

 

I am excited to bring my craniosacral services to Myo Health. Originally a branch of osteopathy, craniosacral therapy is now a modality within itself. It can help treat a range of symptoms from body aches and pain, depleted energy levels, help to reduce stress, anxiety and work with the body’s response to trauma and PTSD. It is a popular therapy for newborns through to all ages. 

 

I practice both biodynamic and biomechanic craniosacral therapy.

Shona

Movement & Wellbeing Enthusiast

Shona is passionate about holistic health, exercise and all things movement. Over the years, Shona has experienced the many benefits movement has had on her mental health and overall wellbeing. 


It was during physical rehabilitation (after a couple of years of serious health issues) where Shona found her love for Pilates. She experienced it as a safe and effective form of exercise in gaining back strength and mobility, so she has huge trust and belief in it. Shona sees Pilates as a crucial foundation to life and all movement modalities. She loves empowering people with greater awareness and understanding of their bodies, not to mention the strength, mobility and flexibility that comes with it. Shona would love to share with you, the joy and many benefits that Pilates can bring to your life.

 

Shona has a calm, nurturing and fun approach to her teaching and creates a welcoming and uplifting environment. Shona is Stott Pilates Reformer trained and BASI Mat trained.

I discovered pilates and fell in love with it. I wanted to teach because I wanted to give others the experience I had been given. I am Stott trained in Matwork and Reformer Pilates.

Jessie

Pilates Enthusiast

Jessie found her love of reformer Pilates through Physiotherapy for a knee injury nearly 10 years ago. Never having enjoyed the gym or fitness classes before, she suddenly found herself doing 3-4 classes a week and loving her new strength, mobility and flexibility.

After a career in hospitality and wine, before becoming a mum of two, she decided to train as a reformer Pilates instructor with the STOTT method, as well as training in pre & post natal reformer Pilates. 

‘I love teaching reformer Pilates, helping people have a better understanding of their bodies, being more energised, motivated and feeling good.’

Hannah

Restorative Therapist

Hannah Harrelson is a South Carolina native with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Shortly after moving to New Zealand in 2018, she received a NZQA certification in therapeutic massage from Holistic Healing Training in Nelson. Since age 12 she has appreciated the benefits of massage and felt it was now her time to be on the giving end. Hannah has been exploring different techniques for almost two years with a particular interest in deep tissue and remedial relief. She continues to receive body work and practices yoga as a means to remain mentally and physically capable of developing mind and body intuition. In February 2020, Hannah furthered her yoga practice with a teacher training workshop in the Ashtanga and Yin. Hannah recognizes massage and yoga as pillars of self-care and believes we owe it to one another to create time for our best selves to grow in a supportive environment.
