Welcome to Koru Corner. We strive to offer a diversity of holistic services and natural therapies by attracting practitioners with a wide range of modalities.



We extend a warm WELCOME to our newest practitioner at Koru Corner, Atefeh Hoseinpour of Red Flower Aromatherapy! Please support Atefeh by LIKEing her page x.

Atefeh is a fully qualified aromatherapy massage therapist who specialises in providing the most relaxing and beneficial female massages. She uses only the highest quality oils and blends them according to each customers unique needs.

Atefah offers both Full Body or Head/Neck/Shoulder Aromatherapy Massage as well as the therapy of Ear Candling. Ear candling creates a low-level vacuum to help remove impurities from the inner ear. The session includes a face and shoulder massage with essential oils to improve blood and lymph circulation, help clear sinuses and uplift the face.

Atefeh will be seeing clients at Koru Corner on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and we look forward to her company.

By Karin Christensen, Practice Manager, Koru Corner Natural Therapies Centre

My vision for Koru Corner was borne out of a passionate urge to attract gifted and skilled practitioners to a warm and welcoming practice serving our local community. I know from my own experience of working in the holistic health and natural therapies field how dissociating and disheartening it can be to work on your own, trying to make ends meet.

Karin's Background

I am Danish by birth but lived in the UK since my late teens. I worked in retail management, marketing and sales over a 20 year period and trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Reiki healing during a period of active self development in 2006-8. I immigrated with my family to New Zealand in 2009 and settled in New Plymouth the following year.

I have run a part time, self employed practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Healing Practitioner in New Plymouth since 2010. Additionally, I work as Personal Assistant to Dr Dan Goodkind, now also based at Koru Corner, which supports my interest in mental health and human behaviour.
