Healing is based on naturopathic principles, thus treating the cause of disease and not just suppressing the symptoms. Modern naturopathy is becoming increasingly evidence based, thus combining a scientific approach with traditional healing principles. I find the energy healing therapy of BodyTalk to be particularly effective in practice.
Natural therapies are suitable for all ages, even babies! You do not have to be unwell to benefit. You may just feel a bit low, sluggish, out of sorts or stressed and can still benefit from all they offer. Treatments boost the body's natural healing potential, helping to restore harmony.
Each person is treated as an individual and the whole person is taken into consideration, not just the affected area. A combination of BodyTalk, kinesiology, herbal medicines, homoeopathic medicines, flower remedies, counselling and nutritional and lifestyle advice are used.
Remedies and supplements are prescribed only if considered necessary.
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.

In practice, I work a lot with energy healing techniques which can be effective in creating the mental and emotional shifts required to facilitate true healing. I may prescribe herbal medicines, dietary modifications, homoeopathic medicines, flower remedies or nutritional supplements if required.
I visited Kirsty for the first time just over two months ago. I had been experiencing a sluggish digestive system and unpleasant reactions to foods for far too long, although I was not sure exactly which foods in particular were the problem. After just three visits, my symptoms have subsided almost completely. But, the added bonus is that I am now embracing the newly adopted 'diet' as, overall, I feel so much more energetic and well, I can feel (and see) I have a healthier digestive system, and as a bi product I am now 10lbs lighter! A true testament to 'you are what you eat'! Thankyou Kirsty. I knew something wasn't right, you found out what and treated me very effectively, and quickly.
Thank you again for your excellent and expert treatment. I have been free of urinary tract infections and vaginal thrush for the last 2 months; the longest stretch in over a year. I am over the moon! I could not have achieved this on my own and was just getting nowhere with conventional medicine. I feel so healthy, happy and restored. Life is good again!

I took my 6 month old baby to see Kirsty as he suffered from acid reflux. He has been on ranitidine since he was a few weeks old and really struggled after each feed. I had previously tried Cranial Osteopathy as well as various baby milks including prescribed formulas but none of these made a difference. My baby had quite bad skin so I wanted to rule out any allergies or intolerances. Kirsty offered a really safe treatment where she balanced out my baby body's to the substances in his baby milk that were aggravating his body and after just a couple of treatments his face began to clear and his reflux symptoms improved.
I visited Kirsty due to sudden onset tachycardia (fast heart rate). Kirsty immediately put me at rest, taking a thorough case history from me. She recommended effective diet and nutritional supplements based on my case history, to help resolve my condition. Additionally, one of the most useful aspects of the consultation was a unique muscle testing, which confirmed to me that I was reacting to several different substances and foods.
Kirsty has an incredible technique for effectively desensitising the body to these substances which, for me, had an immediate and lasting effect, as well as finding out what areas of the body may be struggling as a result. All of this work was included within the initial session, and I would say has helped me enormously. I would recommend Kirsty to anyone suffering unexplained reactions or inflammation in their body.
I consulted Kirsty Lander on the recommendation of another practitioner for advice on my diet and lifestyle with a view to improving management of the Parkinson's disease I have had for 20 years. She gave me some dietary suggestions and recommended some supplements. Following her advice, I obtained some improvement in my symptoms, and was able to make the drugs I take last longer in each dose. Kirsty was always reliable, discreet, friendly and professional.
