Ariel Richards Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Wellness Coach, R.H.N., CCF

Ariel came to us from Canada, and here she fell in love with kite boarding, beach walks, and exploring the jungle for herbal medicinals. Through mindful self-empowerment, her clients are able to overcome the behaviours and thought patterns that are holding them back, learn the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for them, and implement lasting changes to achieve a joyfully, rejuvenated state of being!
