Naturopathy is a holistic system of healing, born of the fundamental belief that the body has everything it needs to heal itself given the opportunity. Using the combination of health sciences with natural therapies and traditional medicines we review the client and individualise prescriptions. These may include, herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, food therapy, flower essences, lifestyle changes and exercise advice. Whilst clients will be given treatment for their current health complaint, finding the cause of imbalances is central to the long-term success of naturopathic treatment. Often there are many layers to this that need to be worked through on a biological, physical, nutritional and emotional level. Time is taken to listen and understand each person's story, and to create an individualised treatment plan.
You don't need to be 'unwell' or suffering from a particular condition to benefit from Naturopathy. Various treatments are used to restore balance, and to promote vitality and wellbeing.
Ultimately, the goal is to inspire and equip the client with the knowledge and skill to maintain their own health.
