Maree Crutch - Energy Healer
I am passionate about holistic health practices and spiritual energy healing.
As a lifelong student of the healing arts, I have a deep respect and curiosity for people’s inbuilt wisdom and capacity to heal.
With over 30 years of experience as a Registered Health Practitioner and educator, I have a great depth of knowledge and skill to assess people’s health issues and provide holistic options to support optimal health and well-being.
In my one-to-one work I encourage people to tap into their inner resources and guidance by teaching them to cultivate self-awareness, empathy and compassion.
I provide individualised therapy sessions incorporating a variety of Oriental healing and spiritual energy practices to support physical and emotional well-being.
Home practice techniques such as meditation, stretches and self-tapping are taught to enrich the one-on-one experience.
I believe we already hold great wisdom and knowledge within ourselves and with support and encouragement we can align our body, mind and spirit to live a fully enlightened life.
"My treatments feel like a dance with my clients' energies."
Bayside Oriental Healing Arts Founder
From general nursing in the 70s, I’ve been actively engaged in various aspects of healthcare for over 40 years. But I always wanted to further my connection to mind and body, so I went to Asia to explore.
While traveling for one and a half years and then living in Asia, I explored East Asian medicine, yoga, and meditation practices. As a yoga enthusiast, I was particularly drawn to Shiatsu - a movement-based practice that was like yoga in motion.
Guiding and supporting aspiring health professionals to achieve their potential with patient care has been a focus of my career. So it's not surprising it wasn’t long after I mastered Eastern Medicine techniques that I became a Shiatsu trainer, too.

Who I work with ...
My therapeutic work has primarily been with young people experiencing anxiety, seniors, and people with disabilities.
I’m known for my ability to hold space for people of all walks of life, help them feel supported and safe, and to gain an understanding of how to make a positive difference to their health and wellbeing.
I relate my observations back to my understanding of Oriental Medicine's framework and apply the techniques which bring about the best health outcomes for my clients.
Commitment to tailoring your treatment to you and your needs.
When there are opportunities to meet in person and allow for face-to-face learning, I enjoy group therapy sessions. This is where I can also independently focus on individuals throughout the room.
I’m pleased to have also developed online therapy sessions for one-on-one sessions with individuals. I've trained in Distant Healing techniques through the Shiatsu Therapy Association of Australia, so you can receive the healing benefits of Oriental Medicine from the comfort of your home via video sessions.
One-on-one sessions are done via video call or in our therapy room to give you personalised attention and treatments tailored to you.
