What we specialise in

Our clinic offers the following treatments

Professional treatments and wellness therapies to suit everyone’s needs!

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy, or essential oils therapy, is using a plant’s aroma-producing oils (essential oils) to treat disease. Essential oils are taken from a plant’s flowers, leaves, stalks, bark, rind, or roots. The oils are mixed with another substance (such as oil, alcohol or lotion) and then applied to the skin, sprayed in the air or inhaled. Aromatherapy originated in Europe in the early 1900s.

Our high-quality aromatherapy range is available as single oils or essential oil blends that are able to be made up into creams, room sprays and massage oils. We can advise on personalised blends as well as stocking pre-made formulations to treat a wide range of conditions. We also have a sensual range.

Australian Bush Flower Essence therapy

The Australian Bush Flower Essences have been researched and developed by Naturopath Ian White, a fifth generation Australian Herbalist. The Bush Remedies not only help to give clarity to one’s life but also the courage, strength and commitment to follow and pursue one’s goals and dreams. They help to develop a higher level of intuition, self esteem, spirituality, creativity and fun.

As Australian Bush Essences can initiate very deep emotional healing, private consultations are available.

These essences are also available over the counter so simply ask our staff how they can assist you in choosing remedies. We can also offer a quiet corner to sit and read through the summary chart to choose your own.

Bach Flower therapy

Its purpose is to restore emotional harmony.

Some examples include:


Walnut – major life changes

Beech – intolerance of others

Impatiens – irritation and impatience

Elm – overwhelmed


Aspen – unexplained fears and worried

Mimulus – fear of something known

Olive – exhaustion



Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy is a subtle form of osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body. It is called ‘cranial’ because treatment often involves the head, although other parts of the body such as the spine and tailbone can also be involved.

A cranial osteopath can feel the very small fluctuations of movement within the body called involuntary motion. To the osteopath, this feels like a gentle expansion and contraction of all the tissues, occurring 7 – 14 times a minute. This involuntary motion can be easily disturbed by any form of trauma, such as a difficult birth, a car accident, knocks and falls and general illness. Gradually the body may accumulate these strains to the point that symptoms start to show.

Cranial Osteopathy is suitable for all ages and many conditions. As it is an extremely gentle treatment it is even suitable for newborn babies and the very elderly.

What conditions is cranial osteopathy used for?

Cranial osteopathy is used for a wide range of problems in both children and adults including constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, seizures, scoliosis, migraine headaches, disturbed sleep cycles, asthma, neck pain, sinus infections, TMJ syndrome, Ménière’s disease and ear problems, and for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who have experienced birth trauma or head trauma.

Clinical Nutrition

Good nutrition can have a profound effect on your health and vitality. Nutritionists have an excellent scientific understanding of nutrition and provide evidence based information about the impacts of food and nutrition on your healthy and well-being. Consulting a Nutritionist can help make sense of the conflicting information on food, whilst identifying the diet that’s right for you.

A Nutritionist uses a wide range of tools to evaluate your health then subsequently advises on lifestyle, dietary and nutritional practices to maintain good health, reduce the risk of disease and support chronic conditions.

Clinical Nutrition provides advice and dietary solutions for:






Fertility

If you are experiencing fertility problems, you are not alone. One in six New Zealand couples have problems conceiving.

Accepting that you or your partner may need some help along the way can be challenging. Our process begins by supporting you as we work to improve your chances of a healthy conception and pregnancy.

The Naturopathic approach involves investigating possible causes, learning about your fertile times, as well as exploring lifestyle and health factors that may impact upon your ability to conceive. We work with therapies that are natural and holistic where possible. Treatment may include herbal medicines, as well as nutritional, dietary or lifestyle changes.

We can also work alongside IVF/ART (Assisted Reproductive Treatments) for optimal outcomes. Give us a call to find out how we can help you.

Herbal medicine

Herbal medicine is used to treat a range of health problems and to enhance wellbeing. Herbal medicine — also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine — refers to using a plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for their medicinal value. Herbalism has a long tradition of use outside of conventional medicine. It is becoming more mainstream as science explores these herbs and validates their use in the treatment and prevention of disease.

Herbal medicine aims to return the body to a state of natural balance, so that it can heal and regulate itself.

Different herbs act on different systems of the body, with many having actions on multiple systems. It takes the skill of a highly experienced practitioner to carefully blend the right combination of herbs for you. Herbs can act on the body as powerfully as pharmaceutical drugs and need to be treated with care and knowledge of all potential interactions. Our clinic has a number of highly qualified herbalists and our store staff are all trained in herbal medicine to provide you with the best information.

Genetic testing

By doing a simple once-only saliva test, you can discover your DNA blueprint and learn how well your genes are matched to your present diet and lifestyle.

By assessing your genetic profile your specialist practitioner can teach you how to optimise your diet and modify your lifestyle to ‘turn off’ or down-regulate genes that have the potential to cause harm and ‘turn on’ or up-regulate the genes that help to prevent disease. This state-of-the-art genetic testing truly is predictive and preventative medicine at its best.

Matching our DNA with our diet and lifestyle, known as nutrigenomics, is the key to the exciting new realm of personalised wellness medicine.

Genetic testing is especially relevant for those who have the following conditions:


cardiovascular conditions/heart disease

  (includes family history)

raised cholesterol levels

diabetes or pre-diabetes


metabolic syndrome

values life and longevity



Naturopathy

It is believed most diseases are caused by what we do and don’t eat. Add a poor diet to a stressful, busy life and you’re likely to create an unnatural balance leading to chronic health problems.

Naturopathy seeks to find the root cause and focuses on the entire body. It uses natural therapies to correct imbalances rather than eliminate or restrain the symptoms.

Naturopathy is considered as one of the best alternative therapies for patients experiencing side effects or complications with conventional medicine.

We have a number of highly trained, experienced naturopaths working at our store and clinic. An initial clinic appointment will require one hour. During this time we take an investigative approach to look for the source of the health issue concerned. This may involve testing or referring for further tests.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy recognizes and emphasizes the important link between the structure of your body and the way it functions. It follows a belief in the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate. Osteopathic practitioner don’t see themselves as healers or fixers, but instead as facilitators to health.

Osteopathy focuses on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves and circulation work together to improve your health & well-being. Everyone can benefit from this therapy from babies to children, young to older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, sports people.
