The SoulPod Team

Nat Draper

Founder of SoulPod and
Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Nat is a high energy health enthusiast. She has been in the health and wellness industry for over 15 years bringing years of knowledge, passion and experience both clinically and personally.

Her passion is to educate and empower people to feel the best they can with the combined approach of acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and self belief. She is truly devoted and thrives on helping people discover that life is so much greater with good health.

Nat has a full understanding and appreciation for what many of her patients are going through, as she too has been there. She was faced with hormonal imbalances, fertility concerns, thyroid and adrenal deficiencies leading to complete physical burn out. After full restoration and recovery this fuelled her inspiration, passion, knowledge and desire to help others who were also experiencing similar health concerns. Throughout her recovery it was reinforced that there is an inseparable, undoubtable connection between the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self. Working concurrently with all four realms ensures a greater understanding of the condition and allows for a deeper level of healing.

At SoulPod, most of Nat’s patients present with any number of the following complaints: exhaustion and fatigue, burn out, fertility challenges, menstrual irregularities, sleep concerns, anxiety or depression, and digestive complaints. She loves combining her treatments with other modalities so one can fully embody true healing.

Nat holds a Bachelor of Health Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine including Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. She also holds an Advanced Diploma in Myotherapy with further study in the Art of Holistic Leadership.

These have become her main stay.

In your consultations with Nicole at SoulPod she will teach you about health and healing to live a better kind of normal. She will open your eyes to the small clues your body gives when it is under duress and guide you to take responsibility for your own health. Using acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, gua-sha, cupping, acupressure, massage and breathing techniques will aid in stimulating qi and blood flow within the body.

Michelle Kline

Kinesiologist

Michelle first discovered Kinesiology in her late 20’s when she found herself dissatisfied in the overall direction her life was taking. She needed a new path, so she enrolled in a Kinesiology course. At the time she thought she was simply embarking on a new career but what unfolded was a complete life transformation. Kinesiology has has empowered her to design a happy, healthy and authentic life for herself and she is certain it can do the same for you.

Kinesiology enables holistic expansion in relation to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. That’s why as a healing application, it really stood out to her, as it tackles the big picture and really helps us get to the core of the issue we are facing. This means we can reinvent deep seeded behavioural patterns and bring the subconscious and the conscious into alignment.

Michelle is extremely passionate about the benefits of Kinesiology and how it allows people to transform their lives and take back their power. She personally had a remarkable journey and is committed and excited to be able to facilitate those positive outcomes in the lives of others.
