‘The body is our medium for experiencing life, accordingly, the way we feel in it shapes our experience. Tending to it with massage and yoga enriches that experience.’

Nestled in the heart of Brixton, Waitara, Cielo Wellbeing is a boutique massage and yoga studio and a sanctuary for holistic wellbeing.

As the proprietor, I am Amber Cielo, a seasoned and qualified massage therapist and yoga teacher with over 25 years of experience in the field.

My Cielo Wellbeing studio mission is clear—to inspire a deep love for the body within the embrace of te taiao (nature). In a peaceful setting and through the transformative practices of massage and yoga, my aim is to support you to increase your mobility. Equipping you with the tools to move with ease and live a comfortable existence in our beautiful world.

Dedicated to bodywork since 1990, my journey has been enriched through extensive studies with both national and international mentors. These studies and my lived experience with personal practices in yoga, movement meditation, and injury recovery, inform and elevate my work.

I understand the transformative impact of deep physical wellbeing on our quality of life. My approach to massage and yoga is deeply rooted in empathy and intuition, whilst responding to the diverse needs of individuals. I like to work collaboratively with you and encourage you to listen deeply to what you already know about your body’s needs and what we uncover during your treatment.

My therapeutic focus lies in relieving tension, enhancing tissue flexibility, and promoting mobility while supporting emotional and physical rejuvenation through activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. I personalise each treatment, listening to you, and tailoring each session to your needs. I employ a range of techniques including:

  • deep tissue
  • sports massage
  • relaxation
  • myofascial release.

I cater to specific needs such as back pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, headaches, and sciatica, and in response to clients’ unique requirements. I can provide a 15- 30 minute extension to your massage to practice stretching techniques aimed at addressing your specific concerns. By incorporating stretching into your massage experience, you can enhance and maintain the benefits of your session.

During pregnancy, I offer prenatal massage services, ensuring a soothing experience while addressing the effort required to grow a human. I can also provide in workplace, onsite massage services to enhance and support the wellbeing of your team.

Accessibility is paramount at the Brixton studio, with easy car parking,  and access, and an adjustable electric table catering to your comfort, the studio is thoughtfully designed to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience.

My availability extends to New Plymouth every Wednesday where I work from Pilates New Plymouth at 28 Northgate. Whether at the Brixton studio or in central New Plymouth, my wish is to encourage a deep mind-body connection and a sense of empowerment and agency to care for your body.

Cielo Wellbeing is committed to honouring the sacred lands of Te Ātiawa Nui Tonu, as well as using Te Tiriti o Waitangi as a guiding kaupapa.
