Naturopathy is 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 symptoms.
Naturopathy encompasses a variety of treatment methods including:
- Nutritional medicine and dietary advice for restoration of balance, detoxification and prevention of disease
- Herbal Medicine to help prevent and treat various illnesses
- Lifestyle advice to promote well-being and to reduce stress
- Soft tissue manipulation to rebalance the body’s systems, to reduce pain and to enable detoxification
Naturopathy can alleviate a wide range of conditions and is suitable for all ages. Some of the more common conditions treated include fatigue, stress related ailments, digestive problems, hormonal issues and general aches and pains. However, you do not need to be unwell to benefit from naturopathy and it can be used to optimise and maintain good health.
Naturopathic treatments boost the body’s natural healing potential, restoring harmony and preventing disease.
