The brainchild of Lynda McIntosh.  In 2014, she founded a North East holistic centre focussing entirely on internal Wellbeing, empowering individual's whilst nurturing community inside a safe, supportive haven.

Housed in the heart of the city offering diverse holistic:
  • 1-1 therapies such as Energy Healing, Massage, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Intolerance Testing and Kinesiology,
  • tailored classes, events and workshops: regular Singing Bowls, Meditation, Yoga and Tai Chi Classes as well as Didgeridoo Class, Cacao Ceremony and Shamanic Rites Sessions
  • Fayres and Wellbeing Festivals
  • an Addiction Project for Recovering Addicts
  • and housed the early days of Aberdeen's first independent vegan cafe.
  • a Gift Shop of crystals, incense, art, spiritual ornaments, statues, essential oils and cleansing sprays

Everyone has a right to live a happy,
healthy abundant life

Exploring Nature

Wellbeing is an inside job

The Centre grew to have dozens of regular Practitioners and guest International healers positively transforming thousands of individual's lives, as well as the beneficial ripple effect these changes have on the lives of their families and friends. 

It was an honour and privilege to witness and participate as Practitioners and Guest Course leaders came from all over the world offering their own unique, authentic spin on wellbeing services.
Our ethos is simple; everyone is entitled to live a happy, healthy abundant life.  
We help you help yourself. 
Ranging from simple day-to-day lifestyle tweaks through to deep, transformational healing.
In its essence, life is easy;
we choose to live in a state of love, or choose to live in a state of fear. 
In late 2018 Lynda relocated South, the 'AWC' shut its premises doors, rebranding as 'The Natural Wellbeing Academy' and continues to offer the same standard of Holistic Services, support and products whilst developing new methods to deliver wellbeing for all
