Nicola’s Personal Healing

We all have the capacity to activate our innate intelligence to enhance healing just as nature does around us.

Nicola appreciates the profound detoxing and healing capabilities of Acupuncture.

Having consciously returned from two spiritual near-death experiences in her late 20s, an extreme result of adrenal exhaustion and burnout, she knows first hand what is required to regenerate and self regulate.

Her personal experience with Ross Penman, of Bright Cottage Acupcunture in Neutral Bay influenced a lifestyle change, healing journey and career change from corporate to natural healing. The greatest gift being her intimate appreciation for the critical role of the spirit in healing and mental health perspective. 


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese method used to relieve some health conditions and symptoms, such as pain. An acupuncturist inserts very thin steel needles into the patient’s skin at multiple “acupoints.” The needles rebalance the body’s energy, or qi, and prompt the body to release natural chemicals to fight the illness or symptom.
