 Gateway to Wellness is a collaboration, launched in Knysna, for the Garden Route, which aspires to offer clients worldwide some of the smartest and all-round balanced assistance, support and solutions to their wellness.

Gillian O’Shea, Specialised Kinesiologist is spear heading this collaboration. The rest of the core team consists of Melody Fourie, Doctor of Nutrition and Andre Slabbert, Naturologist, Vicky Booyens (Ozone & Cryo therapist) and Marion Witte (Iyengar yoga)

The Garden Route, especially Knysna, has amazing healing energy. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. And its best kept secret – it houses many talented, connected holistic wellness practitioners, light workers and healers!

“We encourage other like-minded professionals who share our vision to collaborate with us either in our wellness programmes or the workshops and retreats going forward. Our aim is to grow the message globally that the Garden Route is a premier wellness destination.

The programmes are available online, on a day to day basis at our various practises and through wellness retreats that we host along the Garden Route so anyone in the world can benefit.

The wellness programmes address auto immune diseases, stress & adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalance, weight management and recuperation after surgery and trauma.

Our clients get holistic, personalised, customised overall solutions to their wellbeing. There is a sense of community, collaboration for each person’s highest good, a safe place for sharing and growing and lots of support.

Regular monthly workshops

Last month saw the successful launch of Wellness Wednesday; monthly wellness talks and workshops with the purpose of sharing and informing people on subjects concerning mind body balance and showcasing some of the wonderfully gifted practitioners in our area. These monthly events are hosted at the lovely new Knysna Theatre in Main Street. “The owners Clinton and Riaan have been so supportive in collaborating with us to make these events possible and we look forward to working with them going forward. We are in talks to combine wellness and the performing arts so watch this space.”

Parts of the proceeds of these events go to supporting the theatre as we believe this is an asset to Knysna and needs community support behind it. Parts of the proceeds also go to supporting a different charity each month. This month the recipient is KAWS.

On Wednesday 25 September the theme is Hormones and you will learn how in just 21 days you can heal your metabolism, reset your hormones and lose up to 10 kg’s at the same time. Follow link to see the full programme
