Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process.

Naturopathic principles are based on treating each person as an individual and treating the whole person, not just the affected area.

Naturopathy encompasses a variety of treatment methods including:

Herbal Medicine to help prevent and treat various illnesses
Dietary and Nutritional advice for restoration of balance, detoxification and prevention of disease
Lifestyle advice to promote well-being and to reduce stress
Hydrotherapy using the healing power of water to stimulate the immune system and the body’s natural defenses
Flower essences to enhance the emotional aspect of healing
The use of compresses and packs to stimulate organ function and to reduce pain
Soft tissue manipulation to rebalance the body’s systems, to reduce pain and to enable detoxification

Naturopathy can alleviate a wide range of conditions and is suitable for all ages. Some of the more common conditions treated include fatigue, stress related ailments, digestive problems, PMT and general aches and pains. However, you do not need to be unwell to benefit from naturopathy.

Naturopathic treatments boost the body’s natural healing potential, restoring harmony and preventing disease. More information can be found at
