Naturopathy is the perfect blend of Traditional and Modern Medicine - its roots span thousands of years, and much of what we know today, comes from the traditional use of plants and other natural compounds.
This vast history has allowed Naturopaths practising today to feel confident in the effectiveness and safety of natural medicines. The philosophy of natural health is based on 3 premises:
1. Address the whole person, not just the illness.
2. Provide the right physical and emotional environment and the body's own healing capacity, will in return, provide good health.
3. Address the underlying causes of illness.

BODY WORK THERAPY
Health in our Hands offers a range of body work therapies to suit every body.
Body work therapies work by treating the soft tissue of the musculoskeletal system. However, it affects all body systems especially the circulatory and nervous systems. As such, it can help to reduce muscle tension, increase blood flow, enhance tissue healing from injury or trauma, and either calm or stimulate the nervous system.
Body work therapies also help to reduce blood pressure and heart rate, relieve pain, speed up the removal of waste products from the body, and enhance mobility through the muscles and joints.
Christine is trained in Bowen Therapy, Thai Massage, and Remedial Massage.
Our other therapists offer remedial massage, Swedish massage, sports massage, and Kahuna hot stone massage appointments, which can be booked directly with the therapist.

Naturopathy is not "alternative" medicine - it is simply a different system of treatment that focuses on optimal wellness and preventative medicine, rather than just the absence of disease.
That is, even without the diagnosis of a disease, you may still feel tired, unwell, stressed, bloated, suffer with recurrent infections, feel hormonal, or have aching joints. Your choice to seek Naturopathic treatment means you are ready to make dietary and lifestyle changes, that will benefit you in the short term, as well as set in place the foundations for life -long health, and disease prevention.
Christine's approach is down-to-earth, sensible, and achievable… no extreme diets or mountains of pills to swallow. A Naturopathic consultation typically takes 60 - 75mins, and your diet, digestive function, sleep, stress levels, hormones, physical activity, and energy levels will be discussed. We offer support, education, and expert guidance – to get you well, and keep you there.
Naturopathy Initial Consultation - $120
