Owners Marie and Duncan left behind globe trotting roles in the mining industry to come home to Hauraki and develop their 200 acre property. The evolution has taken 10 years of careful consideration and planning, but after opening their retreat to the public in 2019 the property has continued to receive incredible reviews.
Designed to bring about balance of body and mind, Earth Energies NZ is a luxury escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world - yet only one hour’s drive from Auckland, Hamilton or Tauranga.
When asking Marie, "Why Hauraki?" she says, "We love that it is the best of rural life with easy access to main centres - it's a gateway to the Coromandel, and well, it's the middle of everywhere! People here are wholesome and soulful, and welcoming!"
Duncan and Marie were sure to use many local services and trades during construction and continue to work with other local businesses wherever possible.

Previously the owner of Essential Beauty in Waihi and with over ten years industry experience, internationally qualified Beauty Therapist Kate launched Magnolia Rose Beauty in 2018 after spending time on maternity leave. Since then she hasn’t just had the 2020 Lockdown to contend with but also the arrival of baby number three!
Running her own business gives her the flexibility to work around her growing family, a balancing act for sure, but the Hauraki District is the ideal location for her lifestyle. Currently opening the salon just a few days a week, Kate offers her services by appointment only. Located in rural Paeroa, Kate specializes in nails, brow shaping, eyelash extensions and general waxing and tanning services. It's about the little touches at Magnolia Rose, including post treatment advice and welcome packs for new clients.
"I have always had a real passion for the beauty industry" says Kate. "I just love to be able to help clients to look and feel good about themselves, it's just the best. Every woman deserves to feel amazing and I love to help make that happen, even something as simple as an eyebrow shape!"
Kate enjoys the opportunity to support other small New Zealand businesses wherever she can and is proud to include selected NZ made Surmanti candles and hand creams as well as Seed + Soul natural handmade skin care products in her retail lines.
Committed to helping clients look and feel their absolute best, Magnolia Rose Beauty offers the highest level of beauty therapy and advice in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

Reflexologist Dip Reflexology (WSR), A&P Level 5 (HHTI) New Zealand.
I have spent the past six years turning my life’s passion into a profession. My fascination of the systems and biomechanics of the human body began over 20 years ago when as a personal trainer and gym instructor I supported clients to reach their health and fitness goals. This enthusiasm for healing led me to study Reflexology where I achieved my Diploma with 'Honours' in Applied Human Anatomy and Physiology.
What is Reflexology?
• A simple, holistic, non-invasive therapy that allows the body to heal itself from within
• A natural form of healing via specific pressure techniques on the feet or hands to treat your whole body
• A relaxing therapy to aid stress relief
• Complements other therapies e.g. Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Contact Care, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy etc
How does it work?
Our internal body structures and organs are mirrored on our feet, with every part of your body having a corresponding reflex point on each foot. Reflexology works on these zones to stimulate the body’s own healing response.
What can Reflexology help with?
• Reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation
• Insomnia and restless sleeping
• Improving circulation and relieving tension
• Headaches and migraines
• Back pain
• Swollen feet, ankles and legs
• Detoxing and flushing out toxins
• Improving digestion
• And many, many more
Through the practise of Reflexology, my intention as a Reflexologist is to assist your body to achieve its highest standard of health and wellbeing.
Please call me today and we can chat about how I can help your body to heal.

After years living and working abroad as a Personal Trainer, Paeroa's Shannon (Shan) Siddins found her true calling upon her return to her Hauraki home town.
Establishing Reflexology By Shannon Siddins
has been a seven year journey that has been an experience of personal growth and a massive leap of faith for Shan, who is now learning to truly back herself.
Having felt drawn to healing for most of her life and also looking to support her own mental health, she explored many modalities including Chinese Cupping before finding her way to Reflexology. Following four years of study, while working up to three part time jobs at a time, she received her certifications. Shan then made the most of lockdown to finally dedicate her working week to 'finding her feet' in Reflexology, full-time.
Reflexology is a holistic therapy treatment that was designed to relax and de-stress the body. It dates back to ancient Egypt and focuses on pressure points and reflexes within the feet, which when stimulated during reflexology, activate the body’s own healing system of homeostasis. It can be used to treat a wide variety of injuries and stress related conditions including anxiety and depression.
"In a stressful and fast paced world Reflexology is an effective tool in relaxing, recharging and restoring balance in the body and mind. The immediate benefits that come from the deep state of relaxation are immense, it sounds simple but is something many struggle to do."
The depth of the physiological and anatomical understanding required surprised and intrigued Shan throughout her studies but it also opened her mind to accept the tremendous practical applications and benefits for literally any individual.
Having held her completed qualifications for three years and having already built a flow of regular clientele, Shan was able to use lockdown to refocus on her plan for growth. Putting a lot of time into reaching and engaging a new audience across both her social media platforms was very beneficial. Networking and interacting with other practitioners offers Shan valuable support and understanding in what can be a solitary and lonely life as a healer - spending time working alone, often traveling. "Having people reach out for conversation or advice from the wider area, as well as from across the world, can really make my day!"
"I had to find the confidence, learn to really really back myself. I get it. I get why people don't do this, it's so so hard! But, beyond rewarding too."
Business until now has been a mobile 'in home' service, so the natural progression was to open a physical studio. Finally the time has has come as Shan will be opening Reflexology by Shannon, inside New U Fitness at 1 Marshall Street, Paeroa from the 22nd of March. Open Monday, Tuesday,Thursday and Fridays, allowing more time treating clients and less on the road. She has had a blast traveling across the Hauraki District visiting clients in their homes but looks forward to welcoming you all into her new space.

Essence Wellness clinic is a high end beauty clinic working from the inside out, an approach I have found through my journey of having children and small bumps along the way.
My approach is to analyse the skin, go through all aspects of daily lifestyle because our skin really is the largest organ in our body, it lives and breathes off what we feed it.
Here at Essence, I offer everything a large beauty clinic would to encourage clients to stay local.
I am 15 years qualified and have re-trained 3 times along with been awarded the gold standard in treatment this year.
Results from Essence are visable and last because I take the longer route to sort any under lying issues first and then treat the exterior.

If home is where the heart is, then Ngatea's Laura May Tawhiti has found hers in her home town, in the heart of the Hauraki Plains. She loves the small town feel and the people in the community, almost as much as she loves helping them feel good within the skin they are in.
Following time spent studying and another 5 years working to hone her skills in beauty clinics in Auckland and Hamilton, opportunity arose for Laura when an existing salon came up for sale in Paeroa. Taking the step to build her own business 12 years ago was a leap of faith but she was determined to make her dreams a reality.
ESSENCEBeauty & Wellness Clinic
has evolved over time, especially through Laura's journey into motherhood. She had some health difficulties which offered her new perspective on the importance of wellness from the inside out. Having relocated the salon to her 'at home' treatment room allows her to continue her passion while offering flexibility to spend time with her growing family of three children. Laura regularly introduces new therapies and services which now include everything from massage and facials, to specialised mole mapping and cosmetic treatments.
Her main goal? To offer the same high end treatments at Essence, that women in Hauraki have typically had to travel to a main centre for. She prefers to focus on internal health, treating skin from within and has stepped back from typical beautician services such as nails, noting that there are so many talented local ladies now offering these services. Individual consultations and bespoke skincare plans are now her sole focus. She prides herself on offering a detailed service which can include addressing lifestyle, diet and environmental factors for clients to offer a comprehensive treatment plan where the results speak for themselves.
"Now I just can't imagine doing anything else, anywhere else. I get excited every single day, to open my doors and give 110% to each and every client and give them somewhere they can unwind, be heard and most of all, smile as they look at their reflection after a treatment".
2020 was a difficult year to be in business but Laura loves that we are all looking after each other and ourselves a little more, especially in our local communities. "Supporting and spending local is just so vital to keep our vibrant business communities thriving. I am so thankful for each of my clients who have continued to enable Essence to grow to where we are now. My dream just wouldn't be possible without you all. So, thank you!"
Laura has recently been working on a Mothers Day collaboration with Sarah at the
The Public Office.
So if you have a mum or you are a mum, make sure you like and follow both their facebook pages so that you get all the details in the next few days and help make mum’s special day something she won't forget.
