Join us for the next Auckland AIMA Monthly Meeting:

“Learning to Live a Good Life” with Dr. Morella Lascurain and Amy Shipley

Despite all the information nowadays available, many patients struggle to eat a nutritious diet, exercise, and reduce stress levels to maintain their health. Published research supports that holistic programs focusing on healthy lifestyle habits, stress management and a network of support can help manage and even reverse chronic disease.  Since early 2018, Dr. Morella Lascurain and Amy Shipley have co-facilitated an immersion program running over 9 weeks with participants suffering from conditions such as obesity, autoimmune arthritis, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety. The program educates participants on lifestyle based on bio-individuality, offers movement experiences and strategically coaches the group into the mindset that enables positive change. This talk explains the insights revealed by the personal journey of participants from chronic illness into better health and a sense of joy and fulfillment.

About Morella Lascurain

Dr. Morella Lascurain graduated Magna Cum Laude from medical school in 1993 and continued on to train in orthopaedic surgery. Her interest in healing soon discovered new horizons in the world of natural therapies, as she experienced the impact of holistic approaches on her own health. Fifteen years ago, she co-founded Mother-Well Holistic Health, a multidisciplinary, integrative health centre in Auckland offering services ranging from conventional medicine to acupuncture and hypnotherapy. Around that time, she also discovered her deepest passion lay in the MindBody connection. Having completed postgraduate studies in MindBody Healthcare at AUT University and trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Strategic Coaching and Ayurveda, she has specialised in MindBody healthcare since 2004. She is also an international speaker and an experienced educator.
