Healing for all at AOK
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.
