Having spent 20 years in spas by day and performing and writing music by night, Mardi began to feel the call to integrate holistic beauty techniques, bodywork and sound healing to create a space where her passions could integrate to become a healing destination. ‘I dreamed of combining healing touch with vibrational sound/song so that others could experience what had healed and restored me. Chakana has enabled me to live that dream.’
Mardi has holistically curated each spa journey to create a modern-day temple. A community for women to take a moment, to re-connect, feel empowered, cared for and nurtured. A place of deep retreat, beauty and soul.
Mardi’s touch is both wise and intuitive. Her signature treatment, Ascend, is an exclusive experience, an opportunity to surrender and tune in deeply – it is the essence from which all of the treatments stem from. This is the next level Chakana experience. Her Ascend treatment introduces Chakana Sound as the heart and soul behind Chakana, where Mardi‘s passion for song-writing and the healing powers of touch, merge to create a multi-layered spiritual experience. Infused within the wisdom of her touch and her songs, written as a spiritual chiropractic, this experience activates energy centres and uplifts the spirit.
‘The body is an instrument. I tune in and feel; find the rhythm. I listen to the vibration of the body as the voice of the soul. I harmonise with it, creating a medicinal space for healing and self-awareness.”
In a world that constantly moves us away from ourselves, Mardi’s passion lies in facilitating her clients’ gentle movement inward and reacquaintance with the extraordinary beauty that lies within them. ‘Chakana is a space grounded by careful, loving intention. You can feel safe and vulnerable here. That’s where healing and beauty are revealed.’
