Doreen believes professional development is essential in keeping abreast of up to date research and best practice. She has recently completed a postgraduate certificate in Health Science at AUT's North Shore Campus in Auckland NZ.
Doreen brings over fifteen years experience as a Health and Wellbeing MindBody Practitioner, Massage Therapist, Practice Owner, and Education Professional to each appointment. Doreen's holistic MindBody approach to massage therapy focuses on four key pillars; the physical, the emotional, the spiritual, and lifestyle to reveal the root causes of pain and discomfort. This approach provides a foundation for Doreen and each client to build a targeted treatment plan and achieve measurable results.
Outside of her professional life, Doreen is a loving wife and mum to three adult children. At the core of Doreen's life is her commitment to personal wellbeing. Doreen believes love of life, exercise, meditation, yoga, and mindful eating are some of the essential elements for her in achieving a balanced, happy, and healthy life.
