YOUR BODY IS YOUR LIFELONG COMPANION
Your body is your home from the moment you’re born, there to share every moment with you – but it can be difficult to give it the love and care it deserves.

Nicolette will teach you how to incorporate super nutrient-rich foods into your diet, reactivate healing and optimise yours and your family’s health.
It’s time to give your body some much-needed care, attention, nutrition and detoxification. It’s an investment in yourself that you’ll never regret. Open to men and women of all ages.
