Massage can treat a wide range of physical, functional and, in some cases, psychological symptoms by manually manipulating soft tissue in the client’s body. Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, and/or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can help reduce swelling and promote lymphatic drainage. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows and forearm.
Medical herbalists and registered naturopaths are highly trained medical professionals able to deal with health problems from the cradle to the third age. They adhere to a holistic system of health care that encourages the body’s inherent vitality and ability to heal itself.

During the first appointment your current health complaint is examined, a detailed medical history is taken, and any appropriate diagnostic examinations are performed. It is helpful if you bring any information relating to your condition.
A tailor-made healthcare plan is drawn up, and may include herbal medicines, nutritional advice and diet and lifestyle guidance. Follow-up consultations check on progress and make any necessary adjustments to the healthcare plan.
