About Us

Urban Wellness

Welcome

We can't wait to see you in our space and introduce you to the innovative and proven treatments that will boost your health and help you achieve lasting wellness.

Restore, recover, enhance.

Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells, when a cell becomes deficient in nutrients, oxygen or the water required to keep it charged and create energy for metabolic processes it degenerates and attracts free radicals, which in abundance causes oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is commonly regarded as the underlying cause for illness,  disease and aging.

Our technology's assist your body’s ability to heal itself by helping with the uptake of nutrients, oxygen, water and displace oxidative stress. When a cell is charged and able to create the energy for metabolic processes your body is able to do what it does best, restore health, accelerate recovery and enhance your wellbeing. As a result it can help support immunity, reduce inflammation, improve mood, support sleep, reverse aging, lose weight and much more.

Wendy Nowell-Usticke

My preventative health journey began quite by accident around 30 years ago in Japan, I wanted to learn traditional Japanese cuisine and the only bilingual course I could enrole in was a Macrobiotics one, this combined with courses in Shiatsu introduced to me the amazing machine our body’s are, and how food and movement dictates our health. Now that I’m older the importance of preventative health at a cellular level has a new meaning, our morbidity statistics in New Zealand show, a lot of us will spend the last 15 years of our lives with health complications of heart, respiratory and cerebrovascular and will severely impact our quality of life. My goal is to not be part of that statistic and to live my live to the fullest.

Like many, I live an urban lifestyle, more sedentary and in comfort from the elements. In human existence years this is relatively new, so not only are we reducing our exposure to the traditional healthy environments that keep our bodies resilient, like seasonal changes and sunshine, modern life also exposes us to new problems such as environmental and air pollutants, more time in front of screens and phones etc which our body’s aren’t adapted to recover from at the speed it needs to. This is why the Urban Wellness Space and Spa, these treatments give your body, healthy or not, the help it needs to create an environment for your cells to be able to repair and regenerate itself as it’s designed to do.
