Your body’s ability to heal is greater than anyone has allowed you to believe...
I am an unusual therapist – which is possibly not the most reassuring thing to hear at the get-go, but it’s true! The word holistic is overused in alternative medicine, but I do work in a genuinely holistic way. So, whilst the therapies are described here individually, I charge for my time and most often will incorporate at least two different therapies in one session. This achieves the most effective outcome for my patients.
I place particular emphasis on helping patients manage the effects of stress. Someone might walk through the door wanting help with, say, muscular tension, migraines, insomnia, digestive issues or any number of problems, but during the initial consultation, it becomes apparent that stress is a driver of that condition. So I will, of course, address the primary condition, but I look further and will often discuss breathing techniques, Mindfulness, diet and other lifestyle measures that people are, often, surprised to learn could be of help to them.
Whatever your current state of health, it is almost certain that it can be improved upon and what is also certain is that the chief agent of this improvement is you. The body, given a fighting chance, always errs towards healing and when we talk about real healing, then it is always the body that heals itself not a drug, not a therapist nor a doctor. Naturopaths help restore our body's innate homeostasis: where all body systems are working together harmoniously. They do this using a variety of means: I work with acupuncture, nutrition, bodywork therapies, creative therapy and Mindfulness. By these means, we stand the best chance of restoring homeostasis, in which case, the body can heal.
