The Wellness Packs  address specific conditions like sinus headache, insomnia, and neck and shoulder tension.

The Empowerment Packs address emotional aspects like stress, motivation, and starting afresh. 

Each pack contains an essential oil blend, crystals, and information cards as well as different “goodies”.  The cards describe the location of acupressure points and how and why to work them as well as information on the oils and crystals.

A R1000 bespoke pack

Emotions, particularly trapped emotions, can play a big part in discomfort, and the cards discuss these with possible solutions.

The essential oil blends are of the highest quality and the crystals are specific for each condition.

DISCLAIMER: The information provided in the packs is intended as a guide to self-help and should never replace proper medical care or advice.  Please consult a medical professional or healthcare provider if you are seeking medical advice, diagnoses, or treatment.

Essential Oil Blends

The essential oil blends in the packs are also available separately.

Each package has a flyer explaining the oils and what they do, as well as an illustration of pressure points which can be worked in conjunction with the oil blend or separately.

What is Shiatsu, Acupressure & Acupuncture?

Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure”. Acupressure is the practice of using finger pressure on specific points.  Acupuncture is the placement of needles into specific points. Shiatsu therapists work with the energy in the meridians, do breath work and incorporate stretching into a treatment.

A western trained physiotherapist places needles into muscle knots – that is dry needling and not acupuncture. 

The Crystals

People who love crystals know that the stones have a certain energy that they resonate with.  Usually associated with emotions and the chakras, crystals can also aid in relief from physical conditions.

The Essential Oils

Essential oils are known to be concentrated essences from plants. 

Essential oils need to be pure.  When we inhale an essential oil, molecules of the oil travel along the olfactory nerves and into the brain.  Topically, they enter the blood stream through the skin. 

The oils provided in the boxes are blends but should anyone wish to purchase the pure essential oil, please let us know how we can help.


If an essential oil is deemed to have an effect on digestion and a particular pressure point does too, it makes sense to me that placing the essential oil on the pressure point before massaging it would double the effect.

Other Goodies Included in the Packs

Jade rollers and gua sha tools make it into some of the kits.  These gorgeous pieces feel wonderful on the skin.  The jade roller is used to stimulate blood flow to the face.  The gua sha tool is used to scrape the skin to stimulate blood flow and lymph drainage.  These can be used all over the body.

Pendants, pendulums, and bottle rings.  All handmade, some of these items are gifts in the box.  The bottle rings are for wrapping around a regular sized water bottle, the idea being that their energy will flow into the water making it extra special.
