Your Host

I’m Dr. Nicola Macdonald, a Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Hatha yoga teacher with a deep-seated passion for the interconnectedness of health, holistic well-being, and the intricate dance of life’s energies. My journey into the realms of healing and self-discovery began from a young age, fueled by a fascination with the healing arts and a series of personal challenges, including emotional turmoil and anxiety. These experiences, though daunting, lit a flame within me to explore the deeper connections between mind, body, and spirit, leading me on a path of exploration through various modalities of traditional and esoteric practices.

My serendipitous encounter in London marked the beginning of my professional journey, propelling me to undertake rigorous studies in Sydney and refine my expertise during a pivotal six-month period in China under revered masters. This adventurous spirit and commitment to healing took me to the Queen Mary 2’s Canyon Ranch Spa Club and, eventually, back to Australia where I’ve made significant contributions in Sydney and Brisbane, taking the reins at the Acupuncture and Natural Therapy Centre West End.

Beyond my clinical achievements, my passion for harmonizing body and mind recently led me to study Nada Yoga, exploring the profound impact of sound and vibration on well-being. I’ve also created the AcuHarmonics system, an innovative blend of acupuncture and sound healing, underscoring my belief in the power of integrated healing practices. My approach is characterized by empathy, compassion, and a commitment to listening, supporting my clients in achieving optimal health outcomes.

Residing in picturesque Launceston, Tasmania, I find balance and inspiration in yoga, culinary explorations, and sound and vibrational medicine. I am now extending my impact through my Soulshine Bali retreat the first of many that I’ve created for others to explore their healing journey, find balance, and emerge rejuvenated. This retreat, a culmination of my life’s work, and a testament to the belief that within each of us lies the power to overcome challenges and lead a life of joy and fulfillment.

I invite you to join me on this Bali retreat for a journey of self-discovery and healing, to unfold your own story, and discover the harmony and vitality that awaits. Stay connected with my upcoming retreats and initiatives, as I continue to weave ancient wisdom with modern wellness practices, enriching lives with my knowledge and healing touch.
