We do wellness@work.

That means we specialize in supporting executives, entrepreneurs and managers to achieve amazing results at work and in life.

Our Story

We (Frank and Renee) have both lived the fast paced corporate life in Germany and overseas. After having met what seems a lifetime ago in New Zealand, we decided to enjoy the life of expatriates together for a while and gained additional work experience in Hong Kong and Tokyo.

But the idea of creating a business that is home to both, mind and body, kept coming back. In addition, life in the corporate world was no longer fulfilling expectations and became less satisfying over time.

Having been introduced to Reiki in Hong Kong and studied Shiatsu in Japan in addition to being a certified wellness trainer and massage therapist, Renee had created the right mix of qualification to start something new.

Being responsible for larger business operations in home and overseas markets, Frank decided to add studies in psychology, human communication and professional counseling to his range of expertise.

Once we had all necessary components lined up, we dared to make the next big and scary step.

In 2004 we moved to Tropical North Queensland, Australia and founded  mind & motion®. Not only had we given up our stressful (but well paid and safe) corporate life, we also entered other unknown territories: new country, new industry, new way of being employed (or not).

After successfully testing the waters of wellbeing as an industry for well over 10 years on the day spa side of the business the launch of miamo – wellness@work was the logic next step.

This is what drives us

Today’s unhealthy lifestyles as well as statistics of work related illnesses and frustrations make many of us look for change and improvement. Wellness (deriving from well-being and fitness) has become a mainstream term. It is time wellness is recognized as a healthy lifestyle rather than a modern word on product labels.

It is also important to take the wellness philosophy into the business world.

Why do so few companies strive for healthy, motivated employees? Aren’t they the basis for creativity, innovation and sustainability?

Corporate wellness and wellness@work are the new buzz words for us.

Our Vision

Everybody is living a healthy and balanced life (personal and professional, not just one half of it) and taking responsibility for what they are doing and the resulting consequences on a daily basis.

mind&motion® contributes significantly to wellness being part of everybody’s daily life.
