Modalities

Most of the modalities I practice you will be familiar with – there is a common thread in all of them – they are non-invasive, and I act as a facilitator so your own body resets itself (a reboot of your CPU) and returns to a state of balance and well-being.

Some modalities have more profound restorative effects on some individuals than others, and some modalities are more beneficial than others for certain conditions at different stages of treatment. Your whole body has adapted in many ways to where it is now, so in unraveling this process, the key is to change and adapt to your body’s changing responses to treatment and return to vitality.

Naturopathy is based on the belief that the body has an inherent self-healing capacity. Previously called ‘nature cures’ naturopathy is wholistic healthcare – treating the person as a whole rather than just focusing on the area or part of the body that is in a state of discomfort.

Addressing the underlying imbalances is important, and here I use various modalities and treatments such as:

  • Herbal Medicine
  • Nutrition
  • Homeopathy
  • Iridology
  • Natural Therapies & Massage
  • Electrodermal Screening (CEDS)
  • Cellular Health Assessment (CHA)
  • Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)
These modalities can be used very effectively, to work with the body and bring a gentle and effective return to overall vitality – the best possible outcome for you. Naturopathy is fabulous as a preventative tool – and to work proactively is to work smarter. It makes sense to enhance our wellness, stamina, performance and focus on being the best that we can be.

Iridology is used to gain further insights into a client’s constitution and reflects the status of the internal body. Acute and chronic health problems are reflected in the iris and these markings show healing signs or clear up completely on return to wellness.

FAQ: how does this work?
ANS: physically, the eye is an extension of the brain, the central nervous system (CNS), and the iris is linked by to each part of the body by thousands of nerve endings which reflect any CNS distress in the iris.


Herbal Medicine has been used effectively for thousands of years and the basis of many of the preparations in today’s pharmaceutical industry are synthetically manufactured substances made to replicate isolated chemical structures of medicinal plants because of their effectiveness – usually at much higher strengths than in nature. It is the synergistic effect of all the chemicals in the plant that sets herbal medicine apart. Liquid herbal mixtures are not mass produced, but individually dispensed to address your unique set of health problems.

FAQ: I’ve heard that some herbs are dangerous?
ANS: There are some cautions and contra-indications with certain conditions such as hypertension or particular drugs etc. Our professional training emphasizes all contras and cautions, and we are notified of any newly discovered interactions through our professional membership.

Nutrition is such a large area – it’s about knowing what are the right foods, how to prepare them to retain maximum benefits, eating the right quantities at the best times. The ‘healthy’ food pyramid that has been promoted for the last 25 years coupled with reduced exercise, has led to unprecedented obesity in the western world with ensuing weight related diseases of heart disease, diabetes etc – which just have to be reversed.

I use food as a form of medicine – the blood and bowel cleansers, those that help the kidneys, skin, reduce body acidity - foods that help or hinder certain health problems, and they really work. The emphasis is on gently clearing all the body’s elimination channels – bowel, lymph, skin, lungs and kidneys – so that toxins, acids etc can leave the body without creating a strong healing crisis.

Absorption of our nutrients is vital, as well as offsetting the effects of environmental pollution, free-radicals and long-term stress on our bodies – so I recommend vitamin and mineral supplementation too.

Dietary advice and small exercise and lifestyle adjustments can make huge long-term improvements to peoples lives.

Sports nutrition
is vital to maximize performance and stamina for those undertaking regular and serious training levels.

Natural Therapies

The broad range of natural therapies I have studied gives me a wide
range of modalities
that I have to offer my clients and reflects my
integrated, wholistic approach to natural health management. Sometimes I work in just one style or therapy only, other times I apply different techniques to different fibres of the body – it works.

I want lasting results; Clients want choice – I provide it.

All natural therapies used are non-invasive and gentle for chronic and acute neck and joint problems as well as headaches/migraine, sinus, RSI, tension in the jaw (eg grinding teeth) hearing problems, lower back, neck and ‘frozen’ shoulders – whether caused by accidents, trauma or prolonged tension.

Briefly, Bowen works on resetting ligaments and muscles, Myotherapy on the tightness of the layers of skin or fascia.

When soft tissues are released and properly balanced, the skeletal bones are usually realigned without jolting and cracking. Cranio Sacral works well on the membrane system of the body - relaxing the deep myofascial system in the body via the motor nervous system. Excellent for shear, torsion and rotation injuries where resistance and inertia has developed.

FAQ: can you use these modalities on anyone ?
ANS: young to old can benefit – we don’t work on anyone with obvious contra-indications eg: skull fractures, hemorrhaging, acute systemic infections – but this is common sense.

Lymphatic drainage is very effective for helping the immune system, as it is the major waste removal pathway in the body. It helps with acne, eczema and reduces cellulite, oedema and fluid retention.

Reflexology works on the principle of reflex zones corresponding to all parts of the body are on the hands, feet and ears. Massaging these areas then normalizes the corresponding internal and external parts of the body.

Acupressure is used in conjunction with Meridian Balancing to stimulate or sedate areas of the body that need adjustments.

The Kinesiology I use quickly ties in the emotional and sub-conscious aspects of the treatment, and is especially beneficial when used with Essence Therapy and CEDS.

Massage Therapy

Massage techniques range from the very gentle relaxing Swedish and facial relaxation (great for the teeth grinders and those with jaw tension) and special Aromatherapy pampering - we all need that regularly!

Pregnancy massage brings special needs, and I have seated massage also for the later months of pregnancy to give maximum comfort.

Heavier deep-tissue styles of massage are more appropriate for sports enthusiasts and injuries. Sports Massage is intensive deep tissue work on muscles where it is needed most, using specialized techniques such as Trigger Point work and a combination of therapies.

CHA treatments measure the effectiveness of your training – muscle and fat ratios, cellular health etc and show your biological age.

Remedial massage is used for injuries from yesterday or 20 years ago – they can all be helped by increasing the blood flow and so bringing nutrients to the area and help in regaining mobility – with instructions on simple safe exercises for your homework. Remedial massage can be used on its own or in conjunction with powerful treatments such as FSM for really painful conditions.

Health Assessments

BioEnergetic Medicine, also known as Computerised
Electrodermal Screening (CEDS)
identifies areas of energetic
imbalance within the organs, glands, tissues and systems of the body.
These imbalances are usually enough to make one feel ‘out of sorts’ but
often there is no evidence showing up in blood tests - yet.

Acupuncture points on hands and feet are tested with a probe, and changes in resistance of a meridian indicate either under or overactivity – hence a health imbalance.

Working on these problem areas, various substances can be tested for allergies and sensitivities which are putting extra stress on the body. The allergy/sensitivities can be eliminated or neutralized with a homeopathic preparation. I can also test nutritional supplements by this method to check its suitability for you.

BioImpedance testing, or Cellular Health Analyser (CHA) is a scientifically validated test that accurately assesses the status of health at the cellular level, which determines our biological age (v’s our chronological age). This quick and non-invasive test measures and records

  • fat mass
  • muscle mass
  • biological age
  • total body water
  • intercellular fluid levels
  • extra-cellular fluid levels
  • cellular toxicity
  • Cellular vitality

    The analysis of these bio-markers shows target areas to improve your vitality and slow down the aging process – and the range of Wellthwise Healthy Lifestyle Programs can guide through to maximizing your health potential.

    Briefly, the Wellthwise programs are set up to determine safe weight and fat loss, looking at exercise and stress management; fluid regulation, bowel/kidney/liver cleansing or detoxification.

The CHA objectively measures the changing body composition over time, which enables treatment to be adjusted to best suit your changing needs.

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)

This electrotherapy unit operates at very low amps (millionths amp)
similar to that produced by your own cells. Your body seems to use the microcurrent energy to increase its own energy (and hence healing-ability) production, protein synthesis and waste product removal.

The frequencies have been described as electronic homeopathy – and
work on the principle of resonance – just the same as a singer can
shatter a glass when the note resonates with the crystal structure – so the FSM works on the traumatized and ‘toxic’ biologic tissue and changes its structure when the frequency is correct – the tissue/s soften and the pain relief that comes with it seems to be long lasting provided the tissue is then allowed to stabilize. Between 60% to 80% of the treatment usually holds between sessions, which are 4-7 days apart. A minimum of 3-5 treatments is recommended.

Muscles that have contorted and adapted may return to the old configuration if not treated again, although some clients have had permanent changes after just a few treatments. It is a non-invasive relaxing treatment that works on both chronic and acute soft tissue problems.

FAQ: Are there any side effects with the FSM?
ANS: Seldom. The increase in cellular metabolism can remove long-stored waste from muscles very quickly, so supplements to aid in liver detoxification are usually recommended. Most people feel no side effects, a few get fatigue, drowsiness, a temporary increase in pain or some flu-like symptoms which all seem to dissipate within 20 minutes on drinking water. All reactions are temporary.

FAQ: are there any situations where FSM can’t be used?
ANS: Yes. 1st trimester of pregnancy and people with demand pacemakers; also we do not use FSM treatment through the brain area at all; for treatments post 1st trimester we avoid the uterus area.
