Health Philosophy

Naturopathic medicine is derived from the healing power of nature and is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. A Naturopath may use a range of different healing modalities such as clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, Bach flowers, as well as lifestyle changes, water therapy and exercise to bring the body back to optimum health and wellness. Working with the Mind as well as the Body we can bring the body into balance. Naturopathy allows the individual to gain a greater understanding of how their body uniquely reacts to the various elements encountered in daily life. As this knowledge grows the individual is empowered with the mastery of how to care for their body, what the best foods are to feed it, how to nurture it and ultimately how to heal it. In this way the naturopathic healing system is also an educational system for the individual as their journey back to wellness continues. Its quite a freeing thought knowing “you are in control.” You, can be happy in health.


About Christina

My Story

I'm a Naturopath, Herbalist and massage practitioner and I specialise in pain of all sorts.  Physical and emotional.  

I believes in a whole-body approach to health. Finding and addressing any imbalance in nutrients. Working with supplements to restore any deficiencies. Using herbs to help the body to eradicate any disease or pathogen. Massage to relax and heal the body of any injuries or body imbalance.

My motto is the healthier you are the happier you are. It makes life so much easier to live if we feel great. The body has the ability to heal itself, we just need some help sometimes to get the message through “that we can do it.” Give it the right nutrition, the right rest, the right spark and health is possible. Live the life you were meant to instead of living the life you must endure.

I'm just like you, a mother, wife and daughter. It's a great life but I'm a little different.  Some say quirky others say just a little weird.  Like many of you out there when I got sick things didn't always go to the conventional plan. I stump doctors and medications just don't work like they should.  Morphine gives me pain instead of being pain relief.  My poor mother struggled to find answers for me.  So conventional medicine didn't know how to help me but Natural Medicine did.  So not a hard decision for me to enter the world of Natural Medicine.  

I love finding the light at the end of what to some was a very dark tunnel.  I am usually the last person someone finds their way to.  When they have been told that there is nothing anyone can do.  I have to say it is very satisfying to help those that have started to think there is no hope.  

I work with a combination of different modalities to find what works for the individual.  Diet, nutrient therapy, herbs and exercise.   Yes there is exercise we all need it otherwise we waste to nothing.

I see people of all ages with all different ailments

Herbs

Herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years by most known cultures to enhance healing from injury and from disease and to assist the body in times of stress.  Today herbalists take from both traditional and scientifically based practice to provide you with a comprehensive treatment that can work alone or with any medications you may be taking. Herbal tinctures are nasty to the taste. Mary Poppins sang “A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down.” This is what she meant is the song. They are however the best way to take the herbs as they are absorbed best this way. They can be taken in tablet or capsule form also. I like the tinctures best as they can be mixed for the individual.

Massage

The Benefits of Massage

As with any kind of massage, the benefits of a relaxation massage can last for several days after your treatment. Relaxation massage – like other forms of massage - can offer the following benefits:

  • Lowering blood pressure – at least for a while

  • Improvements to peripheral circulation

  • Improvements to skin tone and appearance

  • Improvements to gastrointestinal motility (bowel movements will become more regular)

  • Some reduction in muscle tension including the relief of muscle tension headaches

  • Stress relief

  • Immune boosting

Relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC! The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain-free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.

Therapeutic massage is deeper and is used with GAT and MET to realign and restore movement to areas of injury or pain. This one is not really pain free. “As they say no pain no gain.” Sometimes there is pain when the muscle is resistant to release.

Pregnancy Massage is a wonderful choice for prenatal care and relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and oedema (or swelling).

General Articulating Therapy (GAT) is a system that moves the joints of the body, to improve range of motion, postural deviations or misalignments, release muscle tension and improve recovery times and performance.

  • Improve the range of motion and function of restricted joints.

  • Improve functional postural deviations and misalignments.

  • It may improve performance in athletes and aids recovery.

  • It helps to release muscle tension and improve muscular skeletal conditions or diseases.

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) is a manual therapy that uses the gentle muscle contractions of the patient to relax and lengthen muscles and normalize joint motion.

Lymphatic drainage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. Used to reduce swelling and improve the immune system.
