About Our Philosophy
Story behind Refine
To focus, to purify, to fine tune, to improve , to cultivate.
Human bodies are incredible, complex and powerful. With everything we put the body through, most times we don't give it enough credit. I'm always amazed at how resilient and capable my body is at healing itself. However I believe we often don't listen to our bodies when we push it too far.
Health and wellbeing is about listening to our bodies and knowing what it's telling us. To refine our health and wellbeing is to focus on our body and mind, to purify ourselves from any toxicities in our lives, to fine tune any imbalances, to improve function, and to cultivate better habits and lifestyle.
The leaves in my logo are a constant reminder that healing is always a process. That everyday we are turning over a new leaf from bad habits, toxic thoughts, unhealthy choices to better habits, loving thoughts and healthier choices.
