Naturopath, Herbalist, Nutritionist, Homeopath, Thai Massage & Bowen Body Work Therapist
Christine started in private practice in 1996. She specialises in Nutritional Medicine for a wide variety of health problems in women, men, and children. It is vital that the body and mind are nourished well before they can perform for us like we want them to, and as they should.
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 1 – 1.25 hrs, 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.

Smaller stones are used to massage with, and even smaller again are placed between the toes.
