Services, costs and what to expect
The initial consult lasts 90 minutes and costs $150. This involves a discussion of the issues, taking a detailed health history and workshopping a treatment plan together. It also includes an acupuncture treatment if it is appropriate for the patient at that time.
All followup consults last 55 minutes and cost $89.
Cash, eftpos and credit card are all accepted for payment.
Naturopathy is an approach that believes in treating the cause of an illness and not its symptoms.
There is no one miracle diet for everyone. Instead, I believe in becoming more in tune with our bodies so we can feel exactly what works and what doesn't.
Invariably diet change means adding more whole, nutritious foods to your daily eating plan.
Vitamin and Mineral Therapy
During the initial case take, I assess you for the signs and symptoms of common mineral and vitamin deficiencies, which can be a significant cause of imbalance in the body.
This is usually the stuff you already know about! But sometimes it helps to have someone else give you a kick up the pants, or break down what needs to be done into achievable goals.
Herbal medicine is the oldest form of healing there is. Herbs contain many ingredients, which work together to produce a beneficial effect.
Each remedy is individually blended to match the imbalances in your body, and works by gently supporting and nourishing your system so it can return to normal function.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
TCM Acupuncture works on your body's flow of qi (energy) channels.
The channels link your organs with your outer body - that's how a needle in your arm can directly affect your heart or your digestion.
Acupuncture involves minimal pain or sensation when the needle is inserted, and is then an incredibly relaxing and nourishing treatment.
