"There are many life-coaches, but the secret to successful coaching or any change for that matter is an ethical stance of not introducing your own world views or content into the mix as well as an extreme sensitivity to non-verbal communication" RB

Zania Ballentine

Zania is the co-owner of Maheono and a fully qualified Bowen Therapist. She continually strives to push the boundaries of her profession and is extremely dedicated to the health and well being of her clients. Not satisfied with explanations, she will ferret out information from a multitude of sources to aid her in successfully treating her clients. With people who generally come to her after having had their ailments for years and in some cases told,"un-treatable" or "you'll just have to live with it" to those that have tried everything else but have not received any satisfaction; Zania boasts an almost 100% success rate.

Her ability to intuitively grasp a clients current situation through sensitivity to their non-verbal communication and then know where the originating pain or ailment resides makes what she does with ease seem almost an illusion of change. This together with an aptitude to naturally build relationships of trust help her clients truly understand what 'holistic' really means.

A native Australian, born in New Zealand she brings with her the 'down to earth' and simple attitude of someone who knows what 'relax' really means and how to cook a real BBQ!

Born and bred into music, her mother a country singer with that smoky, silk, chocolaty sound, inspired Zania to sing at an early age. Now taking singing lessons from a member of the Scottish National Opera, Zania is developing her own brand of voice, something that sits between a Cadbury's Flake and a Ferroro Roche.

Recently she has taken a keen interest in food and it's relationship to health and vitality.
