ACUPUNCTURE & NUTRITIONAL THERAPY
Both acupuncture & functional nutritional therapy aim to get to the root of the problem as well as treating symptoms. They work well together and separately. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into the skin and can be used for a variety of conditions and symptoms. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce pain, inflammation, balance hormones, improve blood flow and reduce stress.
Functional nutritional therapy is a science based, personalised approach to developing specific dietary and lifestyle recommendations based on your unique history and genetics.
WOMEN'S HEALTH & PREGNANCY
Many women find themselves with complicated, busy lives juggling family, work and other factors. This can take its toll on women's health, particularly given the complex nature of their bodies and hormones. Acupuncture and nutritional therapy with lifestyle changes can address symptoms arising from hormonal changes by helping to address hormonal imbalances, reducing stress and inflammation and reducing pain in some conditions. It is very safe and can be used in pregnancy.
There are a multitude of chronic conditions that can significantly impact your quality of life. Whether the condition is physical, emotional or mental you may experience a wide range of symptoms such as pain, low energy, disturbed sleep, cognitive difficulties, low mood or just generally feeling unwell. Acupuncture & Nutritional therapy individually or together, can help reduce pain, improve function, sleep and energy and help you to feel more like you again, whatever the underlying cause. Functional testing can be used to help identify underlying causative factors such as gut dysbiosis, immune dysregulation, hormonal imbalances and nutrient deficiencies.
