Many circumstances have brought you to your current state of health. Find relief. Find greater balance. Uncover and address underlying barriers to health. Optimize your body, mind and spirit. With naturopathic medicine, a variety of treatment options may be used to help you achieve your healthcare goals and to move into greater balance. During the course of your work, we may draw upon:
Botanical (Herbal) Medicine
Plants from root to leaf to bud and flower have been used for centuries, and are now being recognized for their medicinal benefits in medical research.
Using botanical medicines is an important part of my practice utilized to address your healthcare needs.
Herbal medicines come in various forms including dry herb, tincture, capsules, tablets, ointment and teas and are chosen for their effectiveness depending on your individual case.
Using the ancient art and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I insert medical grade acupuncture needles into specific points on your body to increase circulation, address blockages, activate your nervous system and work on re-vitalizing energy, or qi, throughout your body.
One of my greatest passions in naturopathic medicine is helping you see how your perceptions, thoughts, feelings and actions are contributing to your current state of health.
With a commitment to change, mindfulness, and a dedication to holistic understanding of you and your health, we work together to bring harmony to your body, mind and spirit.
Your digestion and its health are key components to your healing journey.
We will address and remove barriers to health and healing through optimizing your diet and providing you with the support you may need with additional nutrients, lifestyle counselling or specialized food plans.
We will also focus on healing and rejuvenating the complex systems at work in your body to allow for you to be as vital and healthy as you desire!
Subtle at times, and deeply powerful at others, this energetic-based medicine is used to encourage your body, mind and spirit to find its homeostatic place of the authentic, and healthiest, you.
With an in-depth intake, and exploration of your personal experience of your symptoms and current state of health, we work together to find remedies which best match and therefore treat you.
Naturopathic Manipulation / Physical Treatments
These are hands on treatments which gently and purposefully adjust your body structure to bring it into alignment and greater balance.
Acupressure may also be employed to encourage your body to reset, recharge or relax.
Hydrotherapy & Nature Cure
Through a treatment series of alternating hot and cold water applications, you will obtain greater immune function and overall vitality, improved sleep and restoration.
I am also a Naturopathic Doula. I combine my ND training with Doula certification to support parents-to-be and their partners/support team through a gentle and empowering birth process.
