Hyperbaric Assistant

Ann has had an active interest in all aspects of natural health over a span of around 40 years. During this time, she has amassed a diverse knowledge of natural health, ranging from herbs, nutrition and physical health, through to mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

Ann has trained as an Energy Medicine Practitioner and as a Gluten Practitioner. She has also trained in facilitation, counselling and mediation, and has a background in teaching. In 1999 Ann then took a career turn and bought a health shop, thereby enabling her to follow her passion for natural health more fully.

It is important to Ann to empower others through knowledge, and support for their personal health and growth. She believes that people need to be more in control of their own health, and that through knowledge, nutritional and lifestyle changes, people can work with their bodies to create vibrant health and wide-ranging healing. Ann believes the body has an amazing ability to heal itself given the right conditions.

Oxygen therapy has been an interest of Ann’s and the simplicity of healing with something as simple as oxygen, completely resonates with her. She believes oxygen is a wonderful way to start, and support, a healing journey. So the opportunity to be involved with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, is an exciting new direction for her.

Practice & Relationship Manager

Maryann loves her role as a practice and relationship manager. Each day, she gets time to be with patients, hear their stories and support them in their wellness journey. Alongside this, Maryann’s role is to ensure the centre is running smoothly with great energetic flow. Looking after the team, organising events, marketing, accounts, and everything in between, is how Maryann spends her time!

Previous to her current role, Maryann had spent most of her career in education. For over 15 years she worked at Auckland University, Unitec Institute of Technology and Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi. As an e-learning specialist she created online courses and designed digital learning activities.

In 2018 Maryann made the decision to shift out of education and pursue her interests in wellness. She enrolled in a full-time Massage course at Wellpark College and loved learning about the anatomy and the healing power of relaxation massage and touch. Maryann also travelled to India and studied Ayurveda practices for six weeks in pursuit of natural healing practices.

Maryann takes a holistic approach to wellness and see’s the huge potential that hyperbaric oxygen can offer as a healing modality.
