The Team

Founders

Jennifer Angsiting

ENTA FOUNDER

I’m so proud to be an enta partner since 2002 & be witness to the evolution of our clinic. From a two girl show in the early days where it was myself offering beauty therapy with business partner & sister Sharon offering Remedial Massage to now an amazing team of highly experienced and professional therapists and instructors. Our vision to create a sanctuary for our clients to receive all their wellness, beauty & fitness needs in the one place is now a reality at enta.

As a beauty therapist I have enjoyed the challenge of developing organic beauty services in a traditionally unnatural industry. When I started my studies in beauty therapy and make up artistry, natural products were not even an option. With a skin irritation that worsened every time I came into contact with product, even wax, I knew I couldn’t continue to treat. The thought of applying products with ingredients I could barely pronounce on clients scared me but I loved my work. On-going discussions with a local naturopath was my saving grace. Together we collaborated on what I needed to perform high end treatments with ultimate results to create an enta range of completely save and non-toxic products.

These days it’s rare for me to get into the beauty room, my days are filled with keeping in touch with our loyal client following, the ever-growing enta team and staying abreast of the latest wellness services to bring to enta. Not to mention keeping up with my fabulous, full of life boys Davis & Jerome and creative husband. Lucky me, he is a chef and my biggest supporter.

Looking forward to sharing a herbal tea with you, next time you’re in Strathmore, pop in and say hi.

Sharon

CO-FOUNDER, REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPIST

All who grew up around me, will agree I’m sure, that I was born a massage therapist!

I was the the massage therapist of the family and classrooms, even as the smallest child and always knew that I could help people feel better, and just loved the reward I always received of someone looking like the weight of the world had been lifted.

After going to University and travelling, I made my way back to Massage and became qualified in 2000 and haven’t looked back.  After a few years working in gym clinics, football clubs and spa’s, I took the leap with Jen, and created Elite Natural Therapies.

Growing the business and a family of 3 children, has meant stepping out of the treatment room probably a little more than what comes naturally to me, but I’m so proud of the little community we have created.

After 17 years in the industry, I pride myself on Enta being ‘Melbourne’s Remedial Massage Specialists’.  We recruit very strictly, we work closely as a team with each other and alongside some fabulous allied health professionals to produce a treatment and experience second to none.

I’d love to have a chat to help you with your treatment needs.

I am a Dru Yoga teacher, a student of life, a mother of two beautiful daughters, a happy wife, a loved  daughter and devoted friend.

I have practised yoga for 7 years now and after seeing the effect it had in my life I decided to share it with the world. After 300 hours of training I have been teaching for nearly 3 years and after every class I am more convinced that this is what I was meant to be.

My intention as a yoga teacher is to bring the beauty of yoga into your life in a welcoming, accepting, encouraging and supportive environment.

Through flow and movement, my aim is for you to experience Inner Peace at the end of each class and ripple the effect to the rest of your day, to all areas of your life and to the people around you.

I look forward to sharing this journey with you.

From Keith Hodiak Jones to Swami Sitaramananda, Ruth White, Sandra Sabatini and Fiona McGovern to mention but a few. As a result, she has explored various different forms of yoga which have strengthened her personal practice and helped shape her own personal style of teaching. More recently she has trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction which she weaves into her classes.

She had her own yoga studio in Nairn, in the north of Scotland where she ran classes and workshops. Since returning to Australia, she has been teaching Hatha classes that are inspired by the many teachings she has received over the years.

She teaches in a light and joyful manner and uses her energy and 18 years of yoga experience to help individuals feel inspired and to lift their spirits.
