Where it Started

Hi I'm Mike Jewell, a passionate health person based in Raglan, New Zealand. I started TrueLife Bodywork in 2009 after continually experiencing the trans-formative effects of natural approaches to health in my own life and knowing I had to learn more and share this with others.

The Evolution

TrueLife Bodywork  is a vehicle for my love of helping people thrive through natural approaches to health and well-being.
Having worked in a range of areas of natural health I started to see the power we have within us to create whatever we want when we set up the right conditions.

Wanting to have more tools to help people I went on a journey to deepen my knowledge of holistic health - studying at the C.H.E.K. Institute in San Diego, researching longevity studies such as 'The Blue Zones', learning from Practitioners, Permaculturists, Yogis, and more. 

One of the greatest learning's I've had has been from the ancient knowledge and wisdom of indigenous cultures and traditions, my most recent experience being on the Poutama Tane mentoring journey here in Raglan. 

My Passion

My passion is helping people discover and experience the inner resources we each have to thrive, heal, and create our lives. 

Other Things

I feel blessed to live in Raglan which is such a strong, resilient community. I love spending most of my time with my son and friends and getting out in nature. I host a radio show on Raglan Community Radio doing interviews and playing my favourite tunes!
