Stabilise Weight. Optimise Energy. Heal your body. 

Shift how you think, feel and experience life regardless of the external landscape. 

Show up everyday at home, work and in your community in a way that makes you feel proud.

 Today many women suffer the biochemical, hormonal and metabolic consequences of past calorie restrictive diets, toxin heavy environments, and stress (in all of its physical and emotional forms).

The consequence of these modern day norms show up as inflammation, lack of clarity, fatigue, cravings, irritability, pain, sleep difficulties, anxiety, PMS or severe menopause symptoms, skin conditions, anger, impatience, weight gain or weight loss resistance.

The De-stress Methodology was developed to put women back in control of their bodies and minds, simplifying an over-complicated health and weight loss marketplace into a step-by-step framework, incorporating easy and uplifting behaviours that can be maintained for life, without becoming another ‘to do’.

 Sound too good to be true? It’s not.  

The problem with many weight-loss programs in the market today, is that they are set up to keep you coming back. You follow something, it ends, and soon enough you are back where you started, or a bit further behind physically and emotionally. 

Our mission is to equip you with the skillset to be self-aware and self-reliant, with the ability to tune into what you need in any moment, and adopt the suitable behaviour to support your body at that specific life stage. Then we would love to say goodbye to you so that you can move onto the next area in your life to enlarge and experience differently. 


The De-stress Methodology is a balanced approach where the overall body (internal and external) is paramount, calmness of the mind is possible, a well nourished and shaped body attainable, and your overall life has more joy and productivity. 

Each session incorporates education, hands-on integrative rituals, an accountability system, plus tools and support for the greatest results and sustainability.  

We turn the necessary behaviours into uplifting daily rituals without adding to the ‘to-do list’, which commonly sits behind the cellular and hormonal damaging stress ever present in women’s lives today. 

We focus on 5 core elements essential for weight loss, regeneration and energy. 


We reduce the impact that emotional stressors have on the body by overcoming the dis-empowering habits we showcase, and adopting new rituals that change how we feel and think. 

We minimise the impact of external stressors such as family/ relationship challenges, financial challenges, technology dependence, sleep inadequacy, stressed breathing, pessimism, negativity and perfectionism. We tackle the elements around confidence, boundaries, expectations and create practices that give you back control of the way you live life.

You step into curiosity, optimism and self-compassion as a research proven mindset for positive behaviour change. 


We alter internal stressors such as parasites, gut bacteria, gut integrity, inflammation, hormonal imbalance, and toxin accumulation.

We give your cells and biochemical pathways what they need, easily, for optimal health, energy, mood and weight. You bring back peace with food, trust in yourself, and in your body’s ability to communicate, heal and recalibrate.

You will understand 'why' you eat and build educated and mindful eating into your lifestyle, rather than living life looking for the next fad diet.


We have a greater exposure to environmental and lifestyle toxins than ever before, and there is elevating evidence to identify the dangerous impact they have on every system within the body. 

In this methodology, you literally step into the rituals that allow your body to remove the toxic stressors of our current lifestyle and environment. You learn exactly what you've been exposed to, where stressors are being stored in your body, and how to minimise your future exposure and support your detoxification pathways.  


We change the way you think about the foundational aspects of health, and make the common sense behaviours of exercise, sleep, mindfulness, meditation, and essential self-care.......common practice. 


Learn how you can recalibrate the nervous, digestive, detoxification, endocrine, immune + reproductive systems, balance blood sugar, and restore gut integrity + bacteria for consistent energy, productivity and emotional stability.

Erin Barnes is the founder of Next Generation Wellness + The Wellness Hub, which are behind a movement. A movement to shift our current thinking and actions, which sit at the heart of the frightening societal norm of deteriorating physical and emotional health, pressured relationships, chronic stress, guilt and addiction. A movement TOWARD better education, enlargement and empowered choices, leading to a brighter future for ourselves and our next generations. 

The shift is about #BringingBackTheImportant 

It’s about bringing back healthier individuals without inflammatory pain and disease, constant weight challenges, daily fatigue, behavioural problems, learning difficulties and health related disease being the norm. 

It’s about slowing the pace of life and adapting differently to chronic daily stress, in order to move away from the burnt out, impatient, frantic, moody and energy-less human that is. 

It’s about reducing chemical accumulation and toxicity from food, personal care and home care products currently affecting health, weight and emotions, and causing inflammatory disease at rocket speed. 

It’s about living intentionally with technology so that we use its power positively, and purposely re-connecting with our friends, partners and family to allow for greater experiences of life despite the challenges that turn up. 

It’s about expanding self-awareness, compassion and contribution, for greater fulfillment and happiness, and shifting from the reliance on food, caffeine, alcohol or spending which currently fill the void. 

It’s about creating homes that are supportive, connected, calm and compassionate, rather than rushed, cluttered, unkind and resentful. It’s about enlarging inner confidence + courage, so as competition and comparison has no influence and we can experience life beyond what currently is. 

Next Generation Wellness exists to provide the EDUCATION to enable you to confidently and courageously make empowered choices in line with the movement. Next Generation Wellness exists to provide you the STRATEGY to not only know it, but SHOW UP DAILY and LIVE IT!
