When it comes to wellbeing, we know we want to do it better. But the struggle is real when the days are short and you’re pushed for time. Don’t worry, we get it.

If we look at wellbeing through a lens that includes the physical, mental, spiritual and social, then what can happen? Join us for an evening sorting the fads from the fundamentals to your wellbeing.

Doors open at 6pm for mixing and mingling, and we'll kick things off at 6.30pm!

By purchasing a pay it forward ticket, you're enabling a young person to attend who normally couldn't. 

So, will you join us? Tickets are limited, and will sell out. Get yours now!


Dr Steve Joe - Integrated Practitioner

Steve Joe Seed Waikato.jpg

Dr Steve Joe has extensive experience as a GP, initially in Ngaruawahia and then in Rototuna. Miriam and Steve have lived in Hamilton for over 30 years and bought up their three children here.

He has always treated the whole person, not just a complaint.  This has led him to consider the underlying drivers of disease.  In this way he considers the role of hormonal imbalances, toxins, stress, exercise and diet among other things.  He believes in a team approach to health and is lucky to work alongside his associate Kate to bounce ideas off.

People around him know when he hasn’t been exercising so he keeps them happy by playing tennis and golf and doing Tai Chi and yoga just enough to realise that he should be doing them more often.

Luke Taylor Seed Waikato.jpg

The founder of Taylored Health & Performance, Luke, strongly believes that everyone has the ability to achieve greatness. In this time-poor world, Luke’s main focus is all around efficiency for maximal impact, whether that be for work, well-being or sport performance. Luke identifies and prioritises unique ways to maximise human potential for each individual.

Challenged with his own personal struggle and the inability to receive answers, Luke became frustrated with the system so he dove into the literature to seek out solutions and to identify the current and best practices to help himself. He quickly identified he had a number of conditions that were undiagnosed. Once treated, he finally achieved the breakthrough performance in health and sport he had longed for.

With his own personal success, he began to identifying that all his clients would greatly benefit from a similar approach. The end result was the 'Taylored Method' was born, a method that takes the time to understand and test each individuals’ needs. It is a multifaceted approach that builds from the foundation up.
