Whilst professional healthcare workers from Medical Practitioners to Nurses, Aged Care Workers, Paramedics, Dentists and Vets excel in their difficult craft, they often neglect their own physical and mental wellbeing. Understanding and regular practice of mindfulness, meditation and other mind-body practices (active relaxation, contemplation, guided imagery) can help alleviate stress, engender resilience and enable carers to bring authentic and compassionate presence at the point of care.
For Healthcarer workers in small clinical practice settings, the 8-week
Allevi8 mentoring program is a great way to get a solid grounding in useful, evidence based
mind body practices. You can either have 5 confidential one-on-one sessions with our
experienced meditation teachers (cost: $800 plus GST = $880), or do so in groups of 3 (cost:
$345 plus GST = $380)
We are pleased to partner with Avet Health to offer Allevi8 mentoring to Veterinarians

It is estimated that >25% of the Australian adult population has learnt meditation. Furthermore, there is growing interest - In an Allevi8 campaign targeting 1,000 Australian patients of Cancer, MS, Parkinson’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Anxiety & Depression in 2020 (based on their medication profile in the MedAdvisor app ) : 48% of recipients opened the message, 7% downloaded the App.
However, the reality is that only a few people are able to develop a practice that unlocks the therapeutic benefits - less than 20% in our experience.
Our Allevi8 program works in helping people establish a strong regular practice. Of those who have gone through our mentoring, 76% were meditating regularly after 6 months (as of September 2021). Furthermore, we provide free ongoing support through the Allevi8 app and weekly Allevi8@8 group teaching and practice sessions.
As reflected by changes in Edmonton.
