BIOPTRON LIGHT COLOUR THERAPY (treatments and sales)



Many diseases and health problems are often stress related. Stress also ages us faster, internally and externally. As well as reducing pain, massage can help to ease stress and decrease anxiety and depression. A reduction in stress, via massage helps to promote;

• Enhanced sleep quality.

• Greater energy.

• Improved concentration.

• Increased circulation.

• Reduced fatigue.

Massage alone is very therapeutic. However, during an aromatherapy massage essential oils are blended for you and massaged into your skin creating powerful healing outcomes. Stress, poor immunity, fatigue, pain and tight sore muscles can all be alleviated with aromatherapy massage.

Increase the benefits with frequent massages.... Getting a massage can do you a world of good, but getting a massage frequently can do even more. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for a massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your well-being. Just because a massage feels like a pampering treat does not mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with Tracy to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.



For something a little different, but truly therapeutic book yourself in for an Aroma-Touch treatment which is quite different from massage. Aroma-Touch employs the use of essential oils. These powerful plant compounds have therapeutic properties to deeply heal the body, mind and soul. Specific oils are chosen and applied using a special technique to the back and feet to create a therapeutic outcome. Unlike massage, Aroma-Touch produces healing which occurs deep within the body rather than externally. The technique is very gentle but stimulates energy zones, reflex points and meridians so as to bring balance to all body systems and functions. The effects felt are quite outstanding and really do bring about a powerful sense of total well being. Aroma Touch will reduce stress, improve immunity, reduce pain and inflammation as well as bring balance to the nervous system. Aroma-Touch - $95



During a consultation with Tracy a holistic approach is taken to health care by looking at the whole person rather than just the symptoms. An assessment of diet and lifestyle is evaluated along with the condition. Iridology, facial diagnosis, *QRA or hair testing (for allergies or toxins) may be used to help with the diagnosis. Nutritional supplements and herbal medicine are usually recommended as part of your treatment. The main focus is always on promoting better health, thus eliminating disease from the body. For your first consultation allow up to one hour ($120). A follow-up consultation will often be needed two weeks later and takes about 30 minutes ($60). This shorter consultation is often all that is needed for children or for acute illnesses such as colds, flu and infections. *Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) is an advanced form of kinesiology (muscle testing) that combines aspects of the ancient meridian system with the latest findings in quantum physics to help gain understanding and insight into what may be needed to support the body. QRA helps unravel the mystery of nutrient deficiencies, digestive upsets, hormone imbalance, toxicity, emotional stress and low energy.



One of the oldest forms of medicine is the use of plants to heal. The complex mix of phyto-chemicals found in plants can help to restore health and often bridges the gap in conventional medicine. Herbal medicine is mostly prescribed during a consultation and may be used for many disorders such as asthma, digestive problems, period pain, premenstrual syndrome, menopause, lowered immunity, infections, stress, depression and many other chronic disorders as well as common coughs and colds. Improve your health now with herbal medicine by booking a naturopathic consultation to see Tracy and allow her to use her expert skills to blend a mixture of herbs just for you.



Discover a new state of wellness with mineral re-balancing. Mineral therapy is based upon the belief that many health issues stem from mineral imbalances within the body. Stress, poor diet and modern agricultural practices all contribute to mineral imbalances which can result in poor health and disease. With the use of biologically available minerals specifically prescribed for each individual person (often via an online assessment), health can be restored. Mineral therapy is a very simple and cost effective way to regain better health. A FREE online assessment provides a simple way to determine which minerals may help your body to maintain its mineral balance. Copy and paste the address below into your browser. A few days after completing this assessment your personal mineral prescription will be emailed to you with the option of purchasing the minerals needed.
