Built in 2016, The Sacred Nest is a calming, natural sensory space offering programs and services designed to nourish the brain and body for improved emotional and physical health and wellbeing.

Through our senses we experience the world… our philosophy is to educate and support clients to reduce over-stimulation and reconnect with nature. We do this through three key offerings….


Every element of The Sacred Nest has been carefully chosen to create a special or ‘sacred’ space that calms the senses and relaxes the body and mind. This supports our delivery of innovative therapies that help foster better connection within families and others based on the principles of Polyvagal Theory. We are certified to provide the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP),  a 5-hour acoustic vagus nerve stimulation program that uses music to shift the nervous system to a calmer state. With a renewed sense of safety, anxiety is reduced and opportunities for learning and social engagement are enhanced. We also guide clients on creating safe sensory spaces or ‘nests’ in their own home.


At The Sacred Nest, we empower individuals and communities with knowledge and tools for healthy food choices. From personalised coaching to educational workshops, we support families and organisations in making informed decisions for sustainable dietary practices and improved well-being.


At The Sacred Nest, we support self-care for family carers, unpaid, and paid staff equally. Our services cater to NDIS, neurodiversity, illness, mental health, and aged care, including dementia. We offer therapeutic touch, meditation, personalised sensory experiences, polyvagal work, and gut health for holistic well-being.
