Natural Therapies

Natural therapies or naturopathy are a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process.

Naturopathic principles are based on treating each person as an individual and treating the whole person, not just the affected area.  Naturopathy encompasses a variety of treatment methods including:

  • Herbal Medicine to help prevent and treat various illnesses
  • Dietary and Nutritional advice for restoration of balance, detoxification and prevention of disease
  • Lifestyle advice to promote well-being and to reduce stress
  • Hydrotherapy using the healing power of water to stimulate the immune system and the body's natural defences
  • Flower essences to enhance the emotional aspect of healing
  • The use of compresses and packs to stimulate organ function and to reduce pain
  • Soft tissue manipulation to rebalance the body's systems, to reduce pain and to enable detoxification
  • Homeopathy
