Diploma in Naturopathy, Diploma in Herbal Medicine
Marcia provides Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork treatments from her centrally located studio at Balance, a place for stillness and rest in the heart of Nelson City. She also facilitates local Wilderness Walks to provide an opportunity to slow down, connect with nature and ourselves and learn about common herbs that can be used for our everyday health.
Marcia gained her diplomas from Wellpark College in Auckland in 2005 with a Double Diploma of Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine including a Certificate of Relaxation Massage.
Born in Auckland and raised in England, Marcia had the good fortune to be brought up by parents who believed in natural medicine. Her father, Dr Lambert Mount, was a Doctor, Homeopath and Naturopath, providing Marcia from a young age with the inspiration to discover her passion in the field of natural health.
Her Naturopathic career began after moving to Nelson in 2006. Marcia could be heard on Fresh FMs early morning breakfast show with Matt Lawrey offering insightful information on various health topics. She worked as a Body Therapist at Enriching Day Spa providing beauty therapy and massage packages. Marcia then established a busy practice from Bodywise Natural Health for 5 years as well as providing helpful advice in the shop.
Marcia has since developed an extensive knowledge base within her self-employed massage and naturopathy practice and offers over 10 years of experience in helping people in many aspects of their health and wellbeing.
Her passions include being out in nature and fresh air, and enjoys running, mountain biking and swimming. Marcia can often be found bush walking in beautiful places, and gathering a few native herbs along the way.
Marcia enjoys living in wonderful Nelson with her husband Brendyn and two children Niamh and Féilim.
