How does Bio-energetic Screening work? Bio-energetic screening utilizes the latest science and digital technology to scan the body and deliver a comprehensive picture of your current energetic health status including areas where the body is depleted, out of balance and weak. Bio-energetic screening is backed by 40 years of research and delivers life changing results for many people. The process is simple, accurate and comprehensive. Being a Naturopath, and having worked in the health field for 30 years, I am astounded at the depth of insight and information the testing offers for clients. It allows us to get to the root cause of your health issues quickly and effectively. I am finding this system a life saver for many clients who have suffered with ill health for a long time.

Have you noticed that your pregnancy is a time of enormous physical and also emotional change? I use a specially built pregnancy massage table so you can feel comfortable and I have lots of experience having worked as a Midwife for 12 years and massaged thousands of women over the last 20 years. Studies point strongly to benefits such as quicker labours and fewer complications for mother and baby when therapeutic massage is incorporated into antenatal care. You can receive Pregnancy Massage from 12 weeks gestation and even into the postnatal period.

Fertility / Infertility
Trying to get pregnant? Starting a family is one of those life experiences we look forward to eagerly, but like 1 in 5 NZ couples, you may find that the joy turns to anxiety and frustration when getting pregnant doesn't happen as easily or quickly as you had anticipated.
How can I help? As a Registered Naturopath, Fertility Educator and ex Midwife, I work with you and your partner in two key ways to help achieve pregnancy, regardless of how long you have been trying to conceive:
- Fertility Education and timing of intercourse
- Naturopathic solutions
Coming to see me can make trying to get pregnant a whole lot easier and less stressful.
Troubled by "Women's things"? You don’t need to “put up” with it! Many hormonal imbalances and Women's Health complaints respond well to a combination of the restorative and balancing properties of herbal preparations and nutritional supplementation, coupled with dietary and lifestyle changes.
Do you suffer from any of the following?
- PMT / PMS
- Painful / irregular / heavy menstruation
- Polycystic Ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Recurrent Miscarriage
- Morning Sickness
- Postnatal Depression
- Deficient Lactation... other “Women's things”
- Or need Preconception care?
It’s time to do something about it. As Women our health is central to the wellbeing of those around us. A well balanced, healthy body pays dividends in ample energy and vitality for you to fully enjoy life.
