Empowering Transformation 

It is more crucial than ever to achieve comprehensive well-being in the fast-paced, sometimes busy world of today. Many people find themselves alienated from their inner selves and fighting to maintain a feeling of balance and calm in their life as a result of rising stress levels, continual diversions, and an emphasis on outward accomplishments. 

Sally Estlin, the dedicated owner of Holistically Fit, understands the significance of holistic well-being in today’s world. Through her work as a wellness coach, healer, and mentor, Sally helps people reconnect with themselves on a profound level. By guiding them through transformative practices and providing unwavering support, she empowers individuals to release limiting beliefs, overcome obstacles, and step into their true potential. 

Holistic Journey of Sally Estlin 

Sally Estlin spent her formative years amidst the lush greenery of Blackburn in Melbourne, renowned as the “bellbird area.” Growing up during the vibrant decades of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, she developed a profound affinity for nature, often exploring the parks and creeks surrounding her expansive backyard. Her fond memories include exhilarating bike rides around Blackburn Lake and careening down hills in a homemade billy cart. 

As the eldest of three siblings, Sally’s passion for learning and achievement was evident from a young age. Her insatiable curiosity led her to embark on a solo backpacking journey for 3 years around the world immediately after completing university, an experience she fondly refers to as the “Degree of Life.” Immersed in diverse cultures and experiences, Sally gained invaluable insights that broadened her perspective. 

During her academic pursuits in the 80s, Sally delved into Sociology and Psychology, intertwining her fascination with human behavior with a scientific understanding of genetics. Transitioning into the late 90s and beyond, her academic journey expanded into the realm of Natural Therapies and Alternative Medicine, culminating in a deep exploration of frequency medicine, which she believes holds transformative potential in healing modalities. 

Driven by her passion for holistic well-being, Sally dedicated herself to studying various modalities, including personal training, aromatherapy, remedial therapies, massage, naturopathy, homeopathy, coaching, counseling, and more recently, the metaphysical and quantum realm. Drawing upon proven scientific principles such as quantum physics, Sally leverages her expertise to facilitate profound healing experiences. It was only in recent years that Sally fully embraced her identity as an empowered empath, gaining clarity on her innate inclination towards certain modalities and her unwavering desire to assist others on their life journey.

As someone with a lifelong interest in crystals, chakras, spiritual and healing practices, Sally’s journey towards holistic well-being took a significant turn at the age of 28 when she

experienced a miscarriage, revealing underlying health concerns. This pivotal moment spurred her to delve deeper into natural therapies and medicine, despite juggling a demanding full-time job. Over time, she immersed herself in learning various modalities such as massage therapy, remedial therapies, aromatherapy, as well as naturopathy and homeopathy. 

However, it wasn’t until the dissolution of her marriage at the age of 43 that Sally felt compelled to consolidate her knowledge and wisdom, fully embracing the holistic world. “I felt the calling to immerse myself fully into this holistic world,” she expressed. “From this time on, I started ‘following the energy’ and trusting my internal guidance and knowing. The more I do it, the more doors open for me,” Sally added. 

With a newfound sense of purpose, Sally swiftly transitioned into becoming a personal trainer and established her own gym, Holistically Fit: Empower Yourself Inside and Out, just months later. Coincidentally situated opposite her Homeopathy teacher’s wellness center and shop, Sally recognized the interconnectedness
