Our Story

The LakeSpa Wellness Centre & the School of Integrated Therapy (SIBT) are contained within a purposefully built building close to the Lake Haven shopping centre complex. Our current building opened it's doors in 2001. Both businesses work side by side to provide numerous Natural Medicine and educational opportunities for the local community. SIBT commenced training professional massage practitioners in 1985 and courses were offered at a variety of community centres between Raymond Terrace and Umina. Due to the growth of SIBT the school in 1989 located into a 4 bedroom house opposite the Lake Haven shopping where it remained for 12 years until both the school and the wellness centre were relocated into our current location at 1 Callaghan Close, Charmhaven.

Since 1985 SIBT has trained well over 5,000 professional remedial massage practitioners, mainly in Australia but also throughout Asia with the assistance of a grant from the Australian Trade Commission. SIBT became a Government Registered Training Organisation in 1999 and has maintained it's recognised educational institution accreditation with the Australian Traditional Medicine Society since 1987. The LakeSpa Wellness Centre with it's team of specialist Natural Medicine practitioners continue to offer a variety of services which can be viewed on our website.


Annually the centre and school assist over 10,000 clients to maintain their health or recover from a variety of health concerns. SIBT and LakeSpa are leaders in their field and Maggie Sands the founder/CEO has worked consistently since the early 80's professionally and politically to advance the Natural Medicine industry in Australia. We have a great team of practitioners and all staff are trained in massage and other modalities. 

We welcome your interest in the centre and the school and attendance at both our yoga and meditation classes. Don't hesitate to contact us if you need guidance in regard to your personal health journey.
