Indigo House: A New Generation Health & Wellbeing Centre!

indigo house is increasingly known as a centre that provides quality, professional counselling and natural health services.

Thousands of indigo house clients are reporting benefits to their physical and emotional health.

No matter what the problem is, indigo house has someone qualified to help.


Feeling stressed? Overwhelmed? Unwell? In pain?

At indigo house there are approximately 20 counselling and natural health practitioners.

Each has tertiary qualifications in their chosen discipline and is a member of their respective professional association.

Some are (or have been) teaching in tertiary institutions, such as: the Australian College of Natural Medicine, the College of Applied Psychology, QUT and the University of Queensland.

All practitioners have been drawn to the philosophy of indigo house and the opportunity to practise in a dynamic wellbeing clinic with like-minded colleagues.


Indigo house was opened in 2000 by sister and brother Alison and David Lees, who wanted to create a welcoming inner city place of healing and rejuvenation.

The indigo house building, originally 1920's workers cottages, has undergone extensive renovations in recent years.

The word indigo is known as the colour representing healing and transformation. House was chosen to capture the warmth and informality of the clinic.

Healthwise Clinic: Positive Results Since 1981!

Healthwise clinic is one of the oldest established natural therapy clinics in Brisbane (1981) still with the original practitioner.

Offering Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Herbal medicine (Western and Chinese), Counseling (transactional analysis) Practitioners David McLeod & Zam Martin, both have lectured extensively in Australia and overseas

We believe that health is much more than just the absence of disease.

At HealthWise, we believe health is best measured in terms of each person's ability to realise his or her maximum potential for enjoyment of every aspect of their life.

At the basis of this philosophy is the concept of "Vitalism" or "Life Force" which recognises that there is a vital curative force in the body, unique to each individual.

It is an established fact that a healthy body has more resistance to disease and can recover faster.

HealthWise practitioners use natural therapies, which are designed to restore and promote the body's functional ability to achieve optimum health.

Natural therapies are based on the belief on the healing power of nature. They involve holistic, individualised treatment regimes that are natural to the body and to the earth, and guide each patient towards beneficial changes to lifestyle or diet.

Natural therapies are able to effectively prevent and treat a wide range of acute and chronic health disorders, and can also support patients having conventional medical treatment.

9 out of 10 parents: Rate Head Lice as the #1 Detested Childhood Ailment!

Unfortunately for children now days, Head lice it seems are a part of being at school. It does not have to be this way. and, have partnered to produce a two way natural attack on head lice - firstly as a natural treatment containing pure essential oils of Thyme, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Lavender and Tea Tree - in a base of Macadamia Nut oil - called 100% Natural Headlice Blitzer and then secondly through a daily repellent spray - called 100% Natural Headlice Beater - which is again natural, yet fragrant for the children to wear.

To assist subscribers to understand this common ailment of youth, has provided a complimentary e-book specifically on this subject, and it is being well received world-wide - A Headlice diagnosis kit is also available complete with graphic photographs of head lice.

What are Head Lice?

Head lice (Pediculus Humanus) are tiny parasites which live on the human scalp and hair. They feed on blood several times a day - usually about every 4-6 hours - and they cannot survive for more than 24 hours away from their human host - meaning if they cannot feed they weaken and die. One female louse can lay a total of about 100 live eggs or nits. The eggs are as small as a grain of salt and are difficult to see. It takes about a week for the eggs to hatch. The empty egg shells remain fixed in the hair until it is physically removed. The empty eggs are easier to see and look like white specks. The young lice mature to adults in 10 days and the cycle begins again.

  • Headlice are the most common insect infestation of humans
  • They are tiny blood sucking parasites that live on the human scalp and hair
  • feeding every 4-6 hours by piercing the skin causing itching and irritation
  • They do not hop, jump, or fly and are only spread through direct contact with infested people. The do not live on pets.
  • Breaking the life cycle of the head lice is the key to eradication

Reclaiming Personal Power: Part 2 Becoming aware of your programming By Tys Dammeyer :

In this article we are going to look at both our conscious and unconscious beliefs about power as well as ways to alter those beliefs. Our belief system structures our experience of reality. Beliefs that are unconscious may be difficult to pinpoint, but they have a profound influence on our experience. Once we bring our core beliefs into conscious awareness we can decide whether they serve us and alter them if they don’t. (more…)
