Natural Comfort Wellness Centre
Since 1995, Pat Antoniak has offered her nursing-aromatherapy care, support and instruction. In 2005, she opened the Natural Comfort Wellness Centre, a multi-modality holistic wellness and teaching centre. For 8 years, Pat and her team of therapists offered a variety of services and seminars to clients, with the intent and focus firmly on the client’s ultimate well-being.
In the summer of 2013, Pat downsized and reorganized the Centre. Now on her own, she looks after all aspects of the Centre and its work: holistic services, retail store, educational seminars and meditation events. She continues to nurture this “Place of Peace & Possibilities” and all who enter it with enthusiasm, joy, gratitude and much love.
Pat believes that her clients hold the keys to their potential for positive change. Her treatments are designed to assist transforming negatives into positives. She simply sets the stage for that transformation to occur. And cheers you on with your success!
