Morella Lascurain graduated Magna Cum Laude from medical school in 1993 and worked in general practice, emergency and trauma care in Venezuela, her country of origin. She was training in orthopaedic surgery when her frantic lifestyle as a medical resident had such an impact on her health, she decided to walk away from the practice of conventional medicine.

Her journey led her to New Zealand in 2000, where she developed a profound interest in natural therapies, and in 2003, she co-founded Mother-Well Holistic Health. Fascinated by the link between mind and physical illness, she has dedicated over 18 years to the study and practice of MindBody healthcare modalities. She has completed postgraduate studies in MindBody Healthcare at AUT University in Auckland and trained in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Strategic Coaching and Ayurveda.

Morella has run a MindBody healthcare practice since 2006. In this space, she addresses the whole person, not just diseases. Her clients present with a vast range of conditions including chronic pain, digestive issues, migraines, autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, intolerances, infertility, allergies, insomnia and more. When she invites them to see their physical symptoms within the bigger picture of their lives, it becomes evident that they are connected to their emotions, beliefs, trauma and current struggles. Her task is to help clients identify and transform what needs to shift in their whole being to trigger physical healing. She is also an international speaker, an experienced educator and regularly facilitates workshops and retreats for professionals and clients.

Morella is not registered to practice medicine in New Zealand and will not diagnose, give medical advice or prescribe.

I reached out to Morella Lascurain to assist me with some challenging health issues.

Morella is highly qualified and knowledgeable in Mind Body healthcare and her method were very beneficial and helpful to me. I can say with all honesty she changed my life and helped me feel empowered to deal with past and present problems.

As a result of all the work we did I now feel able to deal with most situations that arise today! I am extremely grateful for all the help she provided in such a warm and caring way!

I highly recommend Morella for Mind Body healthcare.

Since I’ve been seeing Morella Lascurain my life has changed so much for the better.

As Morella is a trained doctor she has an extra layer of knowledge that is reassuring especially as I have a chronic illness. Through her descriptive guided relaxation journeys she has shone the light into corners of my life and the world at large, that  I didn’t understand were there or why before.

Always  with a sense of humour, that is positive and empowering, I treasure the recordings of some, our sessions.

I find great solace and guidance in replaying these back to myself to reinforce concepts explored discovered / discussed especially in times of need, like if I can’t sleep or I need to reaffirm my pathway.

I’ve now got  a wonderful audio resource to dip into. An excellent teacher I have no hesitation in recommending Morella.


Thank you so much Morella for your wonderful help – for allowing me an opportunity to listen to what my body has to tell me, to be able to release what I don’t need, and to change my beliefs so they will work for me to create a better life.
