Principal Therapist & Director
We learn through story and live as story until our story lives through us as service to others.
Initiated through her musical and creative quests, Sar spent 8 years of her early adulthood based in London, walking to the beat of her own drum and fulfilling her dreams of touring the world in a Rock & Roll band.
In 2010 at the age of 28, Sar, always the seeker, followed her hearts calling to return home to Sydney to begin a deeper journey of self discovery.
Sar's voice became a medicine that guided her path toward a greater and more fulfilling purpose – sharing the healing power of massage, yoga, creativity and embodied feminine wisdom.
Sar has spent the past decade developing and deepening her skills by learning from the world’s best in the ways of bodywork and healing the wild feminine.
She has completed extensive work and training with her teacher and mentor Jane Hardwicke Collings, is a graduate of and apprentice with The School of Shamanic Womancraft and is also the first Australian Yoga Teacher to be certified and trained by Uma Dinsmore-Tuli – to guide women in the practices of Womb Yoga and Well Woman Yoga Therapy.
Sar has completed Levels 1 and 2 of Holistic Pelvic Care with Tami Kent and Fertility Massage Therapy with Clare Spink.
She has also released her solo album as Medicine Voice, to much critical acclaim. Singing and voice work is an essential part of Sar’s life and she continues to evolve this creative practice into her repertoire of healing offerings.
An advocate of women’s wellness, Sar presents and performs at festivals, workshops and conferences. She is an innovator with a special interest in teaching consent principles and body autonomy.
Over time Sar has cultivated a deep literacy and knowledge in the ways of her own body. Operating from this place of self-wisdom, she shares a fierce and gentle healing tonic of presence and safety; of being seen, heard, known, nurtured and welcomed home.
*Sar is available Monday-Thursdays weekly and the first Sunday of every month
Remedial Massage Therapist
Samila has comprehensive anatomical and physiological knowledge, combined with intuition and a focused, deep touch.
Originally from Italy, Samila is a qualified physiotherapist, massage therapist and craniosacral practitioner.
She worked in Italy for four years as a physio, where she specialised in the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint (jaw) Dysfunction, Headaches and Orofacial pain.
In 2018 she joined the Visionary Craniosacral Work® Institute with her teacher and mentor Hugh Milne. The ongoing training has offered her a comprehensive study of the cranial and nervous system, with insights into the connection between mental, emotional and physical health.
At the beginning of 2019 she decided to move to Sydney to explore her Australian roots and study Remedial Massage Therapy. The diploma has offered her the chance to deepen her knowledge of the relationship between muscle and fascia in a grounded, scientific and holistic approach.
In her treatments Samila combines myofascial release, stretching and trigger point therapy, and craniosacral techniques to help people with a wide range of symptoms.
Her areas of interest are jaw and ear dysfunction, teeth grinding, insomnia, migraine, neck pain and sinusitus, trauma and surgery recovery in both adults and young adolescents.
From her previous work as a physiotherapist she is also able to show simple daily mobility and home exercises for her clients.
She is dedicated to healing and learning, and aims to help her clients create an open heart, a clear mind and a free body.

We call the Divine Feminine
The inner knowing within each of us
Feminine wisdom, courage, strength.
We call the women who have gone before us, mothers, midwives, wise women be with us. Remind us to trust our bodies. Remind us to trust the process and to surrender our fears and worries. Remind us to be with what is, our awesome selves. Powerful, creative, yielding and wielding.
