About Me and My Practice

Throughout my nursing career, I recognised a need for people to have the ability to improve and maintain their own health. I believe we are created to live in a healthy way in a healthy world. However, sometimes we lose our way and need direction.

Your current state of health is a reflection of your uniqueness, and many factors can upset the delicate balance that creates your feeling of wellbeing and happiness. I believe a personal approach in treating these imbalances is most effective.

Family, genetics, pre-birth conditions, environment, lifestyle, diet, and your connection to the universe all play a role in your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. A personalised approach treating the whole person to ascertain and address these imbalances is most effective in restoring balance and harmony to your health.

Your personal commitment and involvement in your own healing processes will empower you to gain maximum effective and lasting results which will form a basis for your ultimate success, happiness, and quality of life.

I provide a prompt and effective response to your own health needs with a holistic approach to individual requirements and the use of all-natural techniques and products. Many patients find the benefits of natural therapy to include improvement of chronic illness, increase in energy levels, and true, effective, lasting healing. We aim for restoration of balance in your life through a non-traumatic and non-invasive experience to regain control of your own health. This also involves the reduction of fears and phobias about health and economical health management.
