Shemana was established in 2013 by Anna And Jaymie.Their passion for bringing sacred space, rituals and intentions into a daily practise, Inspired their creation of this Byron Bay Skincare Elixir Company. 

During the Northern Rivers floods earlier this year, they set up a pop up recovery centre to support the local volunteers. Gathering an amazing team of bodyworkers to massage, and reset as many nervous systems as possible.This brought worlds together as Anna's Team of Mandara Trainers fused their magic into the world, with this portal open they found a temple ... and House of Shemana was brought into being.

"Shemana's Wellness Space for Massage, KaHuna, Meditation, CranioSacral, Rituals of Bodywork, Mandara Trainings, & Sacred Events."

The House of Shemana Team includes Masterful Bodyworkers, Teachers and Elixir Makers - We would love to Introduce you to them here

The quest for knowledge in Chinese medicine gave Lihyan a new lens of seeing health and diseases in a better perspective. The depth of its healing modality that focuses on the root cause of the disharmony that manifested the illness is fascinating. Her Taoist Chinese medicine training opens a new door of knowledge in bridging the healing of spiritual, mental, and physical aspects of dis-ease. She then further explored the spirit function of the acupuncture point which then lead her into further training in esoteric acupuncture, five elements, I-ching, and eight extraordinary acupuncture which are found to be very useful in psycho-emotional disorders and assisting individuals in their spiritual path.  


Lihyan's rituals are Acupuncture and Beauty Acupuncture
