INSPIRING SELFCARE THROUGH MASSAGE
Welcome to Manipura Body, a boutique body work studio on the beautiful Southern Gold Coast.
As a qualified Remedial Massage & Beauty Therapist, Manipura Body allows founder Susan Jolley to honour her core self & life purpose; inspiring women to create space in their lives to nourish & nurture themselves.
Taking ownership of our own lives and prioritising moments of quiet nourishment through soul nurturing treatments, invites a new level of spaciousness and balance into our lives. Susan passionately believes that as Women, we must understand that to be able to nurture the ones we love, its essential that we begin by nurturing ourselves & it’s Susan’s hope that through her soul soothing treatments, this journey of self-care will begin.
Drawing on her study of both Myotherapy & Beauty Therapy, Susan offers a holistic treatment approach combining preventative health & massage with spa quality pampering.
According to the Hindu tradition, ‘Manipura’ is the 3rd chakra or solar plexus of energy within the body. Self-esteem, self-love, self-acceptance, and acknowledgement of your own worth are the foundations of the ‘Manipura’. Representing determination, energy to live life to the full and the courage and confidence to manifest our intentions and desires.
‘Manipura’ gives a strong sense of who you are and where you are going. The qualities of ‘Manipura’ allow you to transform inertia into action and movement. It means being proactive rather than reactive. It allows you to meet challenges and move forward in your life.
‘Manipura’ allows you to value, love and accept yourself & be willing to express yourself in a powerful way, knowing that you have the freedom to choose to be yourself and direct your own life.

The program enables her to pay for basic necessities like food, medicine, clean water, clothing and shelter for her family. She learns more about her real value and her human rights. And she graduates with new skills, so she can earn an income and provide for her family.
