The character “shi” means finger or toe. The character “atsu” translates as “slowly applied pressure maintained then slowly released” with the implication of the use of bodyweight rather than strength. Together the two characters symbolize a range of techniques used in a therapeutic way, delivered by bodyweight using either fingers, palms, elbows, knees or feet.
Shiatsu achieves unique results because of it’s holistic goals which attempt to treat the whole person rather than a specific medical complaint. Shiatsu is based on the time-honoured Oriental medical understanding that our physiological and psychological structures are supported and affected by meridians. Meridians are channels of living magnetic energy. A shiatsu practitioner can improve the Ki (chi, life-force, energy) flowing through the meridians to improve our general health and well-being.
Lesley completed a diploma of Osteopathy in 1995 and a diploma of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy in 2017. Her life-long quest is to ‘hear’ the language of the intelligence in the body through the craniosacral rhythms and, in so doing, to bring to light for people their inherent capacity to heal, to thrive and to shine.
Lesley has four kids, now in their 20’s, and three cats who’ve helped raise them. She loves yoga, attempts gardening and delights in gathering with friends and family around the kitchen table.Continue reading “Lesley Diane – Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist”
Shirley Tuffery has been dedicated to a path of self discovery and Truth since the early 1970s when, having recently graduated with a Bachelor of Social Sciences Degree, majoring in Psychology, she landed in Canada where she experienced a ‘spiritual awakening’. At this time she was introduced to Astrology, vegetarianism and ‘alternative’ natural therapies which laid the foundation for her subsequent life’s journey. Going on to qualify and practice as a Naturopath in the early 1980s, she combined her love of healthy living, self development, education , and service with her Astrological counselling, helping others psychologically and spiritually , on their journey to self understanding.
Through her years of further in depth study, she has also served as a meditation teacher, and co-ordinator of her local spiritual group, and is more passionate than ever about helping people make some sense of their lives and find answers not only to the WHAT in their life, but to the WHY, in the deepest spiritual sense.
Her current passion and focus includes healthy lifestyle education and weight loss coaching, organic plant based nutritional supplement business, Naturopathic health care, spiritual meditation, and all things colourful and creative.
I am qualified Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Nutritionist with a science background in Industrial Chemistry and Environmental Science. I am founder of Change Naturopathy based in Auckland, New Zealand. My mission is to share and inspire how to use the healing power of nature for balancing your physical, emotional, and spiritual health. I help identify the root cause of your health issue, while educating how to achieve a balanced lifestyle, restore health, and find vitality. I am focusing on the wellbeing of busy women, children and families, particularly anxiety management, which is part of the program that I am offering with other practitioners here in Shiloh.

I am currently an Arts Therapist in South Auckland and I’m passionate about using creativity and nature as healing tools. I was a Social Worker in South Auckland working with youth and was inspired to study Arts Therapy at Whitecliffe School of Arts and Design. I saw a gap and a need for alternative therapies for young people in South Auckland and in particular approaches that incorporated indigenous models of healing. I resonated with Shiloh’s holistic vision of supporting the community I work and live in with well being, creativity and education. I am married to Wiremu Manaia and we have 6 children between us and 4 grandchildren. I was inspired by Dee’s passion for Shiloh’s mission after meeting with her and was invited to come on the board.

Dads and Lads is an 2-day programme that teaches men and their boys how to fish, using simple and inexpensive methods. Something that is missing in the lives of many boys is quality time spent with a father or father figure.
This programme will encourage the boys and their fathers or male caregivers to spend time learning together and enjoying each other’s company. This programme is specifically designed to promote a healthy lifestyle and get the family, especially the young people outdoors in nature using their physical strength, their newfound knowledge and their ingenuity to catch a fish for the family. It also encourages Dads and Lads to achieve their goals of spending quality time together and with other men & boys in their communities, while being inspired to learn a new sport that is a life skill that can be used throughout their lifetime.
The principle teacher, Bill Hohepa has seen the benefits this programme offers reinforced time and again when Camp Hohepa ‘old boys’, now with families of their own, have contacted him to say it was the best time of their lives and they are teaching their own children the skills he taught them.
