I offer support in alleviating stress and discomfort be it physical, mental or emotional. I work holistically using naturopathic and Chinese Medicine principles. This means that I work with the whole person not just isolated symptoms to get to the root cause of the problem. I seek to empower you to be in charge of your own health and healing and am interested in preventative approaches to wellbeing.
The tools I use are nutrition, massage, acupressure based on Chinese medicine (Shiatsu) as well as yoga, meditation and other relaxation practises.
Shiatsu takes place clothed on a futon on the ground and taps into the meridians or energy lines that run through the body in order to help restore balance and wellbeing. It can be very relaxing as well as effective in the alleviation of menstrual difficulties, headaches, anxiety, IBS and much more. An initial session will require 90 mins.
Massage involves organic oils and can be tailored to your specific needs. This means that it can be gentle or deeper tissue work. I really enjoy working with pregnant women using both massage and shiatsu.
Nutritional therapy requires 90 minutes for an initial consultation and will involve an in depth look at your personal and family history, dietary habits and lifestyle to come up with a unique treatment plan for you. Please contact me for a free 15 min chat to see if we can work together.
