“I am intrinsically interested in the preservation of our natural health and wellbeing as much as we can – including the world around us, politically and personally. Growing up in New Zealand, I learnt early on that we needed to take care of our environment and one another, as well as ourselves individually. I wanted to offer a space that was nurturing and supportive with natural and high quality products for people to use. I implicitly wanted to ensure that there was no addition to the toxic overload on our bodies – as I saw happening – partly through the use of pesticides in growing our fruit and vegetables, and also the synthetic hormones used in farming animals. Importantly, the synthetic chemicals in beauty and skincare products bothered me in particular as we naturally absorb much of what goes on and in our bodies, and this has been the birthing of Sage Beauty, a deep passion for lessening synthetic chemical absorption and improving all of our long term health.
So, I opened Sage Beauty as I decided that I had this opportunity to make a much bigger statement and intention making a difference to people who come in here – with the way we run the business in consideration to landfill and the impact of our footprint on the environment, the multiple skills we all have, the philosophy, ideas and knowledge that our down to earth practitioners share, and within the ethical products and treatments that we offer. We are always learning and we learn a lot from our clients as well – every day.
I have been practising as a Natural Therapist for 21 years in North Bondi and have also embraced Dr Hauschka skincare and treatments, Sharon McGlinchey of MV Organic skincare’s philosophies and lovely range of products, and Eminence and their devotion to the communal wellbeing of the planet and people on it. These products are all steeped in varying philosophies, Homoeopathic, Herbal and Aromatherapy – and in the understanding of the skin as a vital part of each of us as a great absorber of good medicine and also an indicator of potential underlying imbalances.
Good quality natural products applied to the skin are absorbed into the bloodstream via the dermis and nourish us by giving us the benefits of their ingredients which then affect our whole body slowly and gently, as a tonic, in a strengthening healing way over time. All of our skincare products are organic and biodynamic and help us strengthen our systems and wellbeing in this way.
As a Herbalist I love and specialise in helping women and adolescents have pain free menstrual cycles. I treat PMT symptoms, endometriosis and acne/skin conditions and I educate women about the importance of a healthy fertile cycle in relation to their long term and overall health. I also treat other conditions, and love to help people re-balance, support their immune systems with tonics for winter colds and flu’s, and for lung conditions such as asthma.
As a Homoeopath, I enjoy treating children and helping parents understand how to be pro-active in learning about remedies and treating their children with confidence themselves.
I am a Remedial and Pregnancy Massage Therapist. I would call myself an intuitive practitioner, and I am very down to earth, but also able to tune in to my clients and vice versa. Humour plays an important part in my world and we all laugh often and also share a tear when things are tough or touching.
I also practise Past Life Hypnotherapy, which is a fascinating way to understand where we have been, how to unravel emotional blocks and also understand and improve relationships, not to mention to explore the minds’ potential whilst in a Theta state. This is a 3 hour treatment and is a vivid and conscious experience, you do not go to sleep under a hypnotic spell! Enquiries are always welcome. I offer this service normally on a Monday evening.
As a Holistic Beauty Therapist, I love giving our facial treatments to my clients and learning about how their skin responds and heals. We treat Rosacea with the LED light as well as Acne and can combine specialty facials with the LED to get a wonderful and quick result for you.
I specialise in brow shaping and tinting so as to enhance our natural features and ensure that they are “just right”. Our wonderful palette of tint colours means we can colour mix and match perfectly.
We have a very passionate team, we share our skills with one another and everyone who walks in here, and we also know there’s a little bit of magic in our beautiful little jewel at Sage – and we love it! We look forward to your visit.
