Sue Davis – Resident Naturopath

Concentrating on the healing power of nature, Sue focuses on creating an individual approach to health and wellbeing for every guest. Naturopathic medicine is based on the philosophy that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself if given the right tools. These include dietary and lifestyle adaptation, the concept of ‘food as medicine’, herbs, flower essences, nutritional supplements, detoxification and exercise.

Upon graduating with a degree in Naturopathy from Australia, Sue spent many years working for Chiva-Som, a leading Thai health and wellness resort where she helped celebrities and royalty. Sue’s deep knowledge of the subject, teamed with many years’ spent in corporate environments in London, Hong Kong and Singapore, transforms the way her clients view health and wellness.

Maria Natusch – Wellness Practitioner

Maria spent the first 20 years of her professional life working in London’s Financial Markets. Having witnessed the effects a poor lifestyle and stress can do to people’s lives, she made the decision to leave the City behind and re-train as a beauty & holistic therapist.

“I have worked in spas for 12 years now and my aim at Lifehouse is to make our guests feel totally pampered and relaxed. To employ a healthy and holistic plan for daily life is essential for all of us – simple changes can make a big difference to our health and wellbeing.”

Jocelyne Leach – Yoga Teacher

Jocelyne took her first yoga class as a teenager and throughout her life has found that when tangled up physically, emotionally or spiritually, it has been her yoga practice that has straightened her out. The truth is that what you experience mentally really does affect you physically and vice versa.

Jocelyne’s philosophy as a yoga teacher is based on her desire to find what works, elegantly, simply and with ease. Her style is sometimes challenging but always energising and self empowering.
