Our Roots

The brainchild of Nitya Lynda McIntosh, who, as a practising yoga teacher and complementary therapist since 2008, quickly realised there was nothing in her area exclusively focussing on all aspects of internal Wellbeing. 
In 2014, she founded a North East holistic centre, aptly named 'Aberdeen Wellbeing Centre', aimed at empowering individual's whilst nurturing community inside a safe, supportive haven with core values of INTEGRITY, AUTHENTICITY and LOVE.

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 Energy Healing events and workshops, regular Singing Bowls, Meditation, Yoga and Tai Chi Classes as well as Didgeridoo Class, Cacao Ceremony and Shamanic Rites Sessions.
Additionally with a Gift Shop full of crystals, incense, art, spiritual ornaments and statues, essential oils and cleansing sprays supported all aspects of wellbeing and personal development.

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 practitioners positively helping transform 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
The Centre added Fayres, Wellbeing Festivals and an Addiction Project to the mix and housed the early days of Aberdeen's first independent vegan cafe.
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 Nitya 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
