Naturopath ND, Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner
‘I've always believed it's the things we love that reveal who we are.
I am a Naturopath of 34 years who specialises in realigning the human body so it is able to return to its natural state of health and well-being. And my passion is healing.'
In creating a Sanctuary for people for health and healing I have been specific in selecting the talented and experienced team of Practitioners to work collaboratively with. Together we are here to support and guide you through your healing journey towards your optimum health.
As for me, I adore books. They are my budget breaker. Books on health and healing are a look-at-me magnet I can’t walk past. And my reference books are treasures.
I love learning and inspiring people to become all they can be, nature, my garden, the ocean, weekly family dinners, Sunday breakfast at my local growers markets, my rocks, and crystal jewellery that I’ve been collecting since I was a child. I also have a weakness for beautiful scarves and rescuing plants from garden nurseries.
In my daily living, I couldn’t survive without meditation, yoga, Jin Shin Jyutsu, angels, prayer, or a power packed breakfast. Smoothies are my favourite way to start each day or coconut yogurt with fruit and nuts and seeds.
And I am very blessed that I love what I do and do what I love. I don’t call it work. It’s my reason for being.
Poor health drains you on all levels and you don’t cope as well. When you are in pain or constantly tired, you won’t be as patient and kind or even capable of taking care of others, yourself or your career. And when you are ill, we all lose a precious resource that doesn’t nurture their family, contribute to their community, develop their highest potential, grow their business, or support their friends as effectively as when you are filled with energy and vitality.
I work with vital energy (qi/chi). If you break health down to its very essence, you find that it’s all about energy. Everything we eat, drink, breathe, absorb, think, believe, perceive, feel, decide, say, do and experience influences how energy is created, assimilated, used and flows within our bodies. The state of our health is an indicator of this process.
My role as a Naturopath is to identify what’s going on internally, and why, in order that my clients can heal and maintain an optimal state of being. And every single person is unique in their manifestation of living life. So there is no one approach I use.
I actually combine western and Chinese Herbal Medicine with re-balancing vitamin, mineral and enzymatic deficiencies, nutrition, fitness, as well as stress and lifestyle management.
My area of expertise is restoring the whole person. And that means being connected to a network of healers, including holistic Doctors, Researchers, Energy Re-balancing Practitioners, Yoga and Meditation Teachers, Acupuncturists, Counsellors, Nutritionists, other Naturopaths, and even an Art Therapist.
Ultimately, what I do is empower and inspire better health. I empower by sharing my knowledge and experience as a Naturopath. And I inspire people by showing them how.
