Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and sense of wellbeing.  Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health, and determine people’s response to changes in the environment. Under certain circumstances and in some individuals, diet can be a serious risk factor for a number of diseases. Common dietary chemicals can act on the human genome, either directly or indirectly, to alter gene expression or structure. The degree to which diet influences the balance between healthy and disease states may depend on an individual’s genetic makeup. Some diet-regulated genes are likely to play a role in the onset, incidence, progression, and or severity of chronic diseases. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirement, nutritional status, and genotype offers personalised nutrition that can be used to prevent, mitigate or cure chronic disease.

Holistic Therapies

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a type of massage therapy that was primarily developed in Japan. With its name derived from the Japanese term for “finger pressure,” it involves applying pressure to specific points on the body, moving from one point to another in a rhythmic sequence.

Practitioners of shiatsu apply pressure to points on the body thought to be connected to pathways called meridians. By stimulating these points, such therapists aim to promote the flow of vital energy (also known as “chi”) and facilitate healing. According to the principles of TCM, blockages in the flow of chi can contribute to a wide range of illnesses.

Shiatsu is also said to increase energy, promote recovery from injuries, and stimulate the digestive system.
Shiatsu is often used to:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Ease arthritis and reduce pain
  • Ease constipation
  • Improve PMS
  • Help Sinus issues

Acupuncture

Chinese Medicine is an ancient method of healing that originated in the Far East several thousand years ago. This complementary health system treats the whole body as an entirety and can therefore improve wellbeing in addition to a range of physical issues. As a result, patient often notice an improvement in certain problems and their overall sense of wellbeing from treatment.

Chinese Medical treatment is based on the belief that diagnosis and treatment is made according to energetic imbalances within the body and therefore aims treat the root cause of the problem rather than just the symptom itself. As treatment aims to re-establish an individual’s energetic imbalances, patients frequently benefit from an improvement in their symptoms.

This aspect of Chinese Medicine comprises the insertion of very fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points on the body.

Acupuncture involves improving the flow of qi energy through channels in the body, each of which are traditionally believed to be linked to specific organs. Blockages or poor flow of energy in these channels is thought to result in internal imbalance. Acupuncturists believe that the needles stimulate the improved flow of energy and allow the body to rectify the imbalance in qi energy flow.

Earthing

Earthing therapy rests on the intuitive assumption that connecting to the energy of the planet is healthy for our souls and bodies. And while there’s a definite, if New-Age, appeal to the concept of energetically connecting with Mother Earth, there’s also a more scientific angle to the practice, which posits that access to the abundant supply of free electrons in the (subtly negatively charged) ground can help neutralize free radicals. Also called grounding, this therapy can be easily performed at home and can treat everything from inflammation and arthritis to insomnia and depression. This effect has massive health implications because of the well-established link between chronic inflammation and all chronic diseases, including the diseases of ageing and the ageing process itself.
