Our Story

Our story began with Tara in 2014.  As a one woman band, she massaged from her spare room at home until an opportunity arose to rent some space in town.  The Stanthorpe Community fell in love with this Polynesian style of massage, bodywork and healing.  Before long Tara launched the massage training part of the business.  Mind Body Synergy Massage Studio and School of Massage was born.
Alison joined the team after attending one of Tara’s Lomi Lomi Heartworks Massage Training Courses.  She found much joy in both the giving and receiving this massage, so she joined Tara and has remained a committed member of the team.  Julian is Tara’s partner in life and support facilitator on the massage training courses.  As a team we three are the Granite Rock Stars (AKA The Aloha Collective).  Would you like to Join the Aloha Collective?
Our mission is to awaken individuals to their value, greatness, purpose & passion. To help people feel better about their day, themselves, their bodies & life. Through our work we assist people in dealing with the myriad of life’s challenges whilst cleaning up whatever is holding them apart from what they say they want.We achieve this goal through…Mind Body Synergy Massage Studio – Stanthorpe’s Home of Ka Huna Body Work (aka Lomi Lomi or Ancient Hawaiian Temple Massage)
Mind Body Synergy School of Lomi Lomi Heartworks Massage
Nia with Ali – The NIA Technique is a mind/body physical conditioning program that initially stood for Non-Impact Aerobics, a health and fitness alternative that emerged in the ’80’s, and evolved to include neurological integrative practices and teachings.
