Integrative wellness programmes



One in 4 people are being diagnosed with ‘auto immune’ diseases or ‘mystery illnesses. There are now over 100 of these lifestyle diseases.

Depression, inflammation (pain), allergies are on the rise. Stress is affecting almost everyone.

‘Disease management’ is a thriving business worldwide. Something is not working. In fact, we are getting sicker.
We have bought into a lie where if an organ isn’t functioning properly just remove it, and, there is a chemical medication for every problem.

Its my opinion that wellness practitioners and healers from medical and alternative fields, who feel called to serve others, should collaborate more. No one person has all the answers.
There is a rise of Holistic Wellness businesses across the globe, where a single space incorporates a variety of offerings to support clients in achieving mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellness and balance.

Holistic Wellness, Integrative wellness, encompasses the food and beverages we eat and drink, how we move our body, how we keep our mind healthy, healthy thoughts, healthy spirit, healthy energy. Our wellness is influenced internally by our thoughts, metabolic processes and toxicity and externally by the air we breathe to the substances, stressors and people we are exposed to.

Why Gateway to Wellness?

A collaboration, launched in Knysna, which aspires to offer clients worldwide some of the smartest and all round balanced assistance, support and solutions to wellness.
Gillian O’Shea, Specialised Kinesiologist is spear heading this collaboration together with Dr Melody Fourie, Specialist in nutrition.

“We wanted to offer our clients daily access to the concept of a ‘retreat’ or ‘overall solution’ to wellness. We aspire to manifest an actual space which we can call our retreat, where people can visit to destress, recover and heal and learn how to stay well. A beautiful ‘Babelonstoren’ of wellness.

For now, the ‘retreat’ takes the shape of programmes offered from Knysna, a town in the garden route of South Africa. Knysna has the most amazing healing energy. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. And its best kept secret – it houses many talented, connected light workers and healers!’


‘I have brought together a collaboration of like-minded professionals who share my vision and I offer this to clients in a programme called Gateway to Wellness.’ The ‘retreat’ also exists as an online programme so that people who cannot visit Knysna can benefit from the core wellness programme.

Plus we now also facilitate ongoing retreats in lovely 4 star and 5 star venues in Knysna which can accommodate 9 guests at a time.

Our clients get holistic, personalised, customised overall solutions to their wellbeing. There is a sense of community, collaboration for each person’s highest good, a safe place for sharing and growing and lots of support.
