Erica Dimock

Over the last 30 years Erica has studied many different types of massage, and is able to combine these, for an exceptional massage experience. She has also studied many other complimentary Healing Therapies 

Erica is a gifted healer and has always been conscious of the way our mindset affects our health. Our bodies are made up of energy as is everything in the Universe and your thoughts are energy. Negative thoughts and actions deplete the energy within our bodies, therefore making us feel heavy and not ourselves. Whereas, positive thoughts and actions increase the energy within our bodies, therefore making us feel alive and ready to face anything.  Erica’s passion is helping others to heal, how we can take responsibility for our own health, being aware of our posture, our thoughts and who we are in this world, whether that is through the Mind, Body or Spirit.Hands on Reiki Healing

With a Reiki treatment we allow ourselves time to relax, and therefore help ourselves, as the Reiki healing energy flows through us to help physical pain, or heal patterns that lead to pain, today we are aware that illnesses may be lessons in this life.

Reiki allows us to move through our lessons with trust and with grace. Often we are aware of the decisions that are needed to make changes to our lifestyle, but lack the strength to do so.  Reiki helps to give you the strength and courage to make those hard choices.

Reiki and Touch for Health have helped people who have a systematic dominance. This is when our body tries to makes sense of why we just don’t have one symptom or problem but a cascade of health issues that will snowball until every system in the body is affected, both physically and mentally.

Touch for Health Kinesiology explores the fascinating field of human behaviour from the prospective of attitude and posture and all the aspects of human life that contribute to having more of what you were born to accomplish. Touch for Health can dissolve the negative thought patterns, shift limiting beliefs, tackle addictions and wipe out sabotage programs.

Touch for Health uses muscle testing to clear emotional stressors and physical symptoms including pain from your Mind, Body and Soul. Touch for Health gives you more energy, vitality, positive thoughts, a ‘can do’ attitude, motivation and most importantly feeling free, happy, loved, worthy, light and confident to create and live the life you want to live!

Chakra Balancing helps by clearing blockages within our Chakra system.  Chakras are spinning wheels or vortexes of energy, which relate to different energy centres in your body and are influenced by every area of your life.

These Chakra centres hold the keys to health, happiness, and success, and can assist you with anything from feeling safe and secure, to accessing Divine guidance and unconditional love, and even manifesting your vision so you can full fill your life’s true purpose.

Hepburn House was built in 1876, originally on one title incorporating what is now the MenShed. At the turn of the century it was the home of David Hepburn, builder and undertaker. In the 1920s the place was known as Mrs Phillips Boarding House. During the 1960s the building underwent major unsympathetic alterations, including the replacement of the timber verandahs with concrete and removal of fireplaces. The place was used as a residence until mid 1993 when it started being used as offices. A two storey addition to the rear was completed in January 1997 by designer/owner Paul Connolly.

I was lucky enough to receive a full body massage from Erica. the whole experience was lovely. The massage was perfect good pressure she knows what she's doing and knows the body well. Would definitely recommend Life in a Nutshell, for remedial massage or a relaxation massage.

I have just finished doing a Chakra course with Erica. Going in with no expectations and am blown away with what I just have learnt.
On the last day I had all these aha moments and sat there in ore to the wonder of what I just have learnt. it all makes sense now.
Please if you love spirituality and want to learn something new. This course may be for you.
Thank you Erica from my heart to your's 💖💕💖

Lovely and relaxing massage, feel so good now. Highly recommended.
