Life and Soul Living

Sensory Beauty, Hand Crafted Cards & Home Energy Clearing 

“I care passionately for each and every person whom I work with and want to truly encourage wellness and beauty from the inside out.”  - Louise Taphouse

Life & Soul Living is a holistic and nurturing enterprise created by Louise Taphouse, who through various sensory services helps clients to more harmoniously align themselves and their environment. 


The emphasis is on the nurturing of one’s self to one’s environment. By taking care of your external and physical world, you are in turn nurturing and rebalancing your ‘inner world’. Remember – you are a soul with a body.

"No matter how many times I come for a treatment I cannot wait to come back for another. Louise has this wonderful way of making me feel like I am the most important person in the world, as she weaves her magical hands throughout the treatment. Louise offers so much more than a standard facial. Her intuitive skills along with an in-depth understanding of the connection between mind, body and soul is what makes a treatment with Louise so extra special. Absolutely hands down, the best ever!!"
