Therapies

Textbox Section

Naturopathy

Naturopathy uses a variety of natural methods and modalities based on the principles of Naturopathic Medicine to promote, restore and maintain health. This healthcare system recognises the existence of a vital, healing force within the body which can be compromised in times of stress and illness. Naturopathy aims to restore health by activating the body’s self healing powers.

Nutrition

Nutritional Therapy will devise the right nutritional programme for your individual body type and can help facilitate recovery from many common ailments including digestive problems, hormone imbalances, inflammatory disorders and skin complaints. To help identify and correct imbalances, numerous testing procedures are available including laboratory tests.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of healthcare which originated in China over two thousand years ago and is based on ancient principles. The aim of acupuncture is to restore the flow of the body's qi, or energy which is considered to travel through meridians to the vital organs to balance the body's equilibrium. Acupuncture treatment includes the stimulation of specific acu-points on these meridians with ultra-fine sterile needles.

Herbalism

Herbalism is a popular modality that utilises the unique and complex medicinal properties of herbs and plants in the form of tinctures, teas, juices, essential oils or salves. Modern research has validated this ancient practice by confirming that certain plants contain active ingredients known as phytochemicals that have potent properties and so can play a valuable role in helping heal many modern ailments.

Homoeopathy & Flower Remedies

Homoeopathy and Flower Remedies involves the use of highly diluted, gentle remedies that work on the physical, emotional/mental and spiritual levels. An advantage with this system is that it doesn’t interfere with conventional medicine so is often an ideal therapy for patients on medication.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy or phytotherapy uses aromatic essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers, fruits and trees. Individual oils possess therapeutic properties that can promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Essential oils can be blended, diluted and applied to the skin using carrier oils or waxes and are believed to penetrate the skin and be carried throughout the body via the circulatory system.
