About the therapies

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the innate ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process. Modern naturopathic medicine is becoming increasingly evidence based, thus combining a scientific approach with traditional healing principles.

Herbal Medicine

Herbs have been used medicinally by most cultures for thousands of years.  These wonderful plants now have the scientific research to support millenia of traditional use. Herbs can produce remarkable results and need to be taken regularly over a period of time.  They work gently and synergistically to support, nourish, tonify, detoxify and enhance the function of organ systems and the body as a whole.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a combination of Chinese medicine principles and western muscle monitoring, which together, balance the body, mind and emotions.  Kinesiology can produce profound changes emotionally, mentally and physically, thereby increasing a person’s health and wellbeing.

Nutrition

Eating a balanced diet is essential for health and wellbeing.  Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals to live, grow and function properly. We need a wide variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health.  Sometimes modern lifestyles mean we do not receive the nutrition we need and dietary modifications need to be made.

Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies are a safe and natural method of healing. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Remedies allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself.

Functional Pathology Tests

To develop a deeper understanding of what is contributing to your symptoms, functional pathology tests may be used to investigate your biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal status. The results provide important information that assists with the effective management of your health concerns. The tests are easy to do and most specimens are collected in the convenience of your own home.
