Heal­ing for all at AOK

Shepparton News - - SN NEWS -

After 30 years work­ing as a high-level nurse, Michelle Newten de­cided to make a change and learn the prac­tices of al­ter­na­tive medicine.

Ini­tially of­fer­ing a mo­bile ser­vice, Michelle de­cided to move into the space at Emer­ald Bank more than two years ago to give her prac­tice a home.

AOK Heal­ing Cen­tre sells a range of prod­ucts that sup­port peo­ple to con­nect with their mind, body and spirit in a pos­i­tive way.

‘‘We just love do­ing any­thing to help a per­son, that’s what we’re about.

‘‘We want to help peo­ple heal and im­prove the way they think,’’ Michelle said.

Michelle’s mo­ti­va­tion and drive to con­tin­u­ously help oth­ers keeps her ex­tremely busy. She is cur­rently work­ing on more books, e-books and an app.

‘‘It’s not work if you love it,’’ she said.

Af­fec­tion­ately known as The Aussie An­gel Lady, Michelle also trains oth­ers to step into their life pur­pose with the AOK On­line Academy.

Michelle has also cre­ated a range of af­fir­ma­tion mag­nets, crys­tal cards and kits which are sold at AOK and on­line. Most no­table is the An­gel’s Tool­box.

Michelle has al­ways lived around the Goul­burn Val­ley area and was drawn to Emer­ald Bank as the site of her cen­tre due to its peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment, which also dou­bles as a great stop for tourists.

There are four ther­apy rooms on-site which of­fer a range of prac­tices in­clud­ing mas­sage ther­apy, re­flex­ol­ogy, ear can­dling and more. There is also a sem­i­nar room, in which nu­mer­ous work­shops are run through­out the year.

Michelle said there were some ex­ten­sions tak­ing place that would in­volve the in­tro­duc­tion of a new heal­ing ther­apy that would be the only one of its kind in Shep­par­ton.

We will know more, come early Novem­ber.

There are three staff mem­bers at AOK Heal­ing Cen­tre, all will­ing to help with any ail­ments for which you might need help.

Staff mem­ber Sharon Guerra said she of­ten lent an ear across the counter, of­fer­ing those who en­tered the store a chance to con­nect with some­one in a real way.

Guests to the store are also wel­come to sim­ply sit and en­joy the mu­sic at the cen­tre, tak­ing a break from the stresses of life.

Due to their back­grounds in nurs­ing, Michelle and Sharon pride them­selves on pro­vid­ing bal­anced opinions when it comes to heal­ing; they have a great un­der­stand­ing of main­stream as well as al­ter­na­tive prac­tices.

AOK Heal­ing Cen­tre is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm.
