Hello, I'm Lorna. Welcome to BodyTonic in the heart of Silverstream, Upper Hutt.
I offer a small selection of holistic treatments such as Bowen Therapy, Reflexology and Aromatherapy Facials. My main aim is to still the mind and invite the body to essentially heal itself by bringing balance and harmony.
I started out on this journey as a Personal Trainer back in 2016 then undertook training in massage therapy and offered massage for 6 years. However now, I offer Bowen therapy in place of massage be it for structural issues such as pain due to muscular tension and nerve pain to internal problems such as hormonal and irregularities. From experience, I have found that Bowen treatments far outlast massage in those particular situations and is gentle on the body and the body's systems.
I hold Diplomas in Massage, Bowen Therapy, Reflexology and Aromatherapy and have undertaken Skin Health therapy training with Janesce botanical skincare in Tauranga. I have also undertaken many additional trainings in modalities such as:- Structural Integration, Neurofascial Pain Management, Indian Head Massage, Trigger Point Therapy and more! And from July 2023 to July 2026 I will be working towards a bachelor's degree in Health Science majoring in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to further develop my skills and offer a wider variety of healing methods.
My lovely, peaceful and private clinic is based out of my home in Silverstream, Upper Hutt. The client space is separate from the rest of the home and offers a quiet client lounge and bathroom.
I welcome you with a friendly smile and warm hospitality.
''I discovered Lorna after looking for a Reflexologist for some considerable time, one of my greatest finds. Reflexology is my first choice but Lorna also does Bowen and facials, always indecision deciding what to try next time. It is such a treat to spend an hour being pampered in a peaceful and professional home setting. I can highly recommend Lorna and am very much looking forward to my next visit" Veronica.
''I have been receiving Bowen treatments from Lorna for a while now for my back ache (mainly), the treatment keeps the pain at bay and my back is slowly recovering. The environment is warm and welcoming, and Lorna makes you feel comfortable and at ease immediately. She listens to your needs and provides the treatment accordingly. She is professional and knowledgeable and is extremely good at what she does – it is obvious that this is her passion. I cannot recommend Lorna highly enough". Shirley.
''I just love receiving my monthly aromatherapy facials, not only are the plant's scents divine but I feel they really give my skin a nourishing treat. I look forward to my shoulders, neck and head massage too! I can just drift away and let go of unwanted tension" Trish.
"I had been suffering with migraines for many years and have tried massage and other methods with no real lasting results. I thought I'd give Bowen a bash. It took just 4 Bowen sessions for my migraines to finally subside - I could'nt believe that such a gentle method could have such profound results! I now only have a Bowen session once a month for fear of my migraines coming back. It's cheaper than paying for a massage that only seems to have short lasting results. Bowen rocks!" Jenny.
'I have been going to Lorna at Bodytonic for a few years now for Bowen Therapy. I had hip and foot issues and have had amazing results with Bowen and now continue to have regular maintenance appointments. The treatment itself is very relaxing and I highly recommend it to anyone. Lorna is amazing at what she does! Dara.''
"I absolutely love the aromatherapy facial oil. It has helped to clear my acne and I love the skin soaking with water as my morning and evening ritual that I look forward to" Sam.
