WHY CLEANSE COLLECTIVE?
WHY DO I WANT TO HELP YOU?
WHY HEALTH IS LIFE’S ULTIMATE WEALTH !
From hospital to holistic healing :
I am Catherine McMillan, founder of the Cleanse Collective
and this is my story …
Cleanse Collective was born in 2017 with the goal of taking people out of their daily routine and offering them radical healing and transformation. We work physically the body in the Juice Cleanse aspect of the Retreat to cleanse and detox. However, it is usually the psychological, emotional and energetic shifts that occur that truly awaken and act as a catalyst for lasting health transformation.
My personal health transformation began many years ago …
Being in hospital emergency, hooked up to a heart monitor at age 25 because my heart was beating so fast and erratically, then just stopping completely for way too long; is certainly what you may term a health “wake up call”. However, even with the severity of my symptoms, I was slow to look for alternative solutions to the drugs the doctors offered me.
Taking responsibility for how sick I was and looking at why and how I ended up in hospital (and on several medications for chronic illness) was a long journey and not one I enthusiastically, in the beginning, embarked upon.
Today, and every day, I now actively and joyfully take responsibility for my health. I make choices to cultivate wellness. I am mindful of my thoughts. I notice what foods I am fuelling my body with. I regularly give my body a ‘break’ with detox and cleanse programs. I meditate. I move my body in ways that it loves. I practice gratitude. I pray. I sing. I surf. I chant mantra. I express myself and live with an open, brave heart.
Enter : Cleanse Kinesiology – my one to one coaching, mentoring and healing clinic space.
I joyfully share my years of knowledge, experience and education in what it takes to create a healthy body, mind and soul.
It is my great honour to help guide and lead you on your own discovery of what creating health means to you and see you truly blossom and shine with radiant health and vitality.
Since 2009 when I began studying Holistic Kinesiology and Mind Body Medicine, I have sought out information and practices to enhance health.
This choice to educate myself dramatically and in the most profound way possible – changed my life!
Before studying Kinesiology, I had never before taken the time to consider how my body functioned; to understand how my thoughts, emotions and daily choices resonated within my body and either cultivated dis-ease or wellness. The idea that our mind, our energy, our thoughts are the strongest influences of our health was a revolutionary learning for me and completely changed how I viewed the paradigm of wellness and dis-ease.
Clinical practice, after graduating in 2011, allowed me to see my clients make breath-takingly beautiful progress towards being a healthier version of themselves and the joy I felt in being part of this healing process is one of the most incredible feelings I’ve ever experienced.
In 2015, I took over the Lotus Wellbeing Centre in Wollongong and finally had the opportunity to both manage and work in a truly holistic health centre. With 16 practitioners cohesively uniting to deliver the region’s most comprehensive array of natural medicine. This powerhouse of collective and mutually beneficial healing opened my eyes to the need for community-based healing space and how education is the cornerstone of helping.
I love facilitating classes that provide education, inspiration, natural solutions and self-responsibility for our health.
I now combine my years of teaching experience, leadership and knowledge of all things natural medicine to deliver quality healing programs across all areas of the Cleanse Collective community education.CLICK HERE TO BOOK A FREE 15 MINUTE CHAT WITH CATH TO FIND OUT HOW TO START YOUR OWN HEALING JOURNEY
