We are a unique Integrative Health Clinic with an emphasis on 'holistic' health, healing both the inside and outside. Unique because of our individual expertise/qualifications in our fields of Natural Medicine, Physiotherapy, and Body work. We provide the complete mind/body treatment in a nurturing, upscale and professional environment just 4.5 km from the City Centre opposite Bowen Hospital. Together, we have developed a unique approach to wellness, by combining our medical and natural medicine backgrounds to provide a complete mind/body treatment. From Live Blood Screening, Naturopathy, Sports nutrition, and through to Physiotherapy, Acupuncture, Massage, Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), Nutritional advice, Weight Loss, and much more.


I am a member of a single profession with numerous well-proven healing methods. Each person is regarded as a person and is chosen as the most suitable therapeutic method. You will have to do a couple of tests to help diagnose and collect information such as:

  • Food sensitivity 
  • ABO blood (group) type
  • Live blood test 
  • Hair mineral analysis for heavy metal toxicity eg: mercury or arsenic
  • Blood pressure 
  • Bacterial toxicity 
  • Mineral absorption test/zinc testing

Allergy / intolerance testing

“What is food to one man may be fierce poison to others”
- Lucretius c.99BC– c.55BC

Determine the beneficial foods from the troublesome foods in your diet and then, with homeopathics, Paddy can desensitise you to any foods you may be intolerant to.

This helps relieve symptoms such as:

  • Eczema
  • Asthma
  • Irritable gut
  • Bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rash
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea
  • Wind

We can also organise a comprehensive blood test for detecting reactive foods.

In food allergy/intolerance studies, we use different procedures such as applied kinesiology (AK) Hair Testing. 

Applied Kinesiology is a science-based and validated method of measuring the functionalities of an individual using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism.

The restriction regimen is also adopted (reactive foods). We remove certain foods from the diet for certain periods to determine the problems of positive nutrients. Then we will use Homeopathic products or herbs in the future so that you can tolerate troubling foods.

Price: $99 per ½ hr consultation.

Sports Medicine, Manipulative Physiotherapy & Acupuncture

Do I need spinal therapy?

  • Have you tried for a very long time to deal with back pain on your own?
  • Have the pain killers stopped doing the trick?
  • Are you ready to do anything to stop the pain?

John Haywood, a physiotherapist will use several methods to help with the pain. After just a few treatments, it will be like you’ve never had back pain. And to keep the pain away, he will design a personal workout program for you. 

Donna McKay, also a physiotherapist, has a holistic approach to injuries, pain, and bodily disability that differ from the therapeutic paradigms of the West and the East. For a fact, if there is a very serious injury or if it is slower than expected, I find a holistic approach helpful. Besides traditional physiotherapy, I do Toyohari acupuncture, which provides treatment with a unique layer.

What is spinal therapy?

Spinal therapy is treatment which concentrates on the spine, to relieve pain, relieve tension, improve the mobility of joints and, in the case of the Oriental therapies, to "unblock energy channels". Spinal therapy is a combination of manipulation techniques with massage which restores and promotes good health and maximises athletic performance. The combination of approaches included are of the following:

  • Mobilisation/manipulation
  • Core stabilisation/exercises
  • Stretching
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Fitness
  • Positive attitude

There is no one miracle cure to back pain, but you will improve you chances of gaining a full recovery when some if not all of these approaches are used. If you have recently injured yourself, or have an ongoing niggling pain that never seems to go away, then book an appointment with John today. No doctors referrals necessary.- ACC treatment provider. Call today to gain relief from pain.

I entered the health industry as a nurse and gained my RN (Registered Nurse) at Wellington Hospital in the 1970's. My passion for Natural Medicine began while searching for answers to my own health issues. In the 1980's I was living in Europe as a professional squash player, playing hard, and living hard. I suffered post viral fatigue and subsequent food intolerances. This drove me to study Naturopathy (Natural Medicine) in Australia, to find answers to my ownchronic poor health.

"I love helping people solve their health issues, especially when that enables them to reach their full potential."

I currently hold certificates in the following:

  • Certification of Neuro Emotional Technique (USA)
  • Academy of Natural Therapies - Perth (AUS)
  • Bio-Resonance Therapy (NZ)
  • 1st Year Rongoa, Maori Herbal Medicine
  • Advanced Certificate in Bowen therapy (AUS, NZ)
  • Advanced Certificate of Hemaveiw (Live Blood Screening)(NZ)
