Naturopathy

As a Naturopathic practitioner, Corina embraces many techniques to support her Herbal Treatments, including using remedies such as Bach flowers and Tissue Salts, promoting Naturopathic Nutrition to cleanse and detoxify the body and Massage using traditional Ayurvedic and Siddha Marma practices to relax, realign and rebalance the body and soul.

 

Iridology and Ayurvedic practices are important tools in identifying a predisposition to weakness in the body and vital to the prevention of systemic disease.  The Naturopathic practitioner will call upon these tools to both build a picture of a client’s underlying health and to direct the treatment through natural methods of healing, promoting the client to take control of their own recovery. 

 

In conventional medicine, treatment typically focuses on addressing the symptoms of the condition. Herbalists take a more holistic, naturopathic approach and aim to improve the overall health by analyzing and treating the underlying imbalances in the body, taking into consideration diet, emotional wellbeing and lifestyle choices.  In Complementary or Herbal Medicine, the aim is to treat the whole person not just the condition.

 

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is a form of complementary healthcare in the naturopathic tradition that takes a holistic approach to wellbeing and seeks to treat the whole person not just the condition.  Heal and Relax practices Western Herbal Medicine based on European knowledge and traditions, with influences of Native American Herbalism and the Asian Health Systems of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

 

The use of herbal remedies has been an effective and proven form of medicine since the beginning of time.  Long standing in both traditional and medical usage, herbs and plant chemicals – Phytochemicals – are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry in the creation of medications, one of the most famous of which, Aspirin, having its roots in herbology; salicylate acid being a derivative of the bark of the humble Willow tree.

 

Iridology

Iridology is the science of analysing the iris to determine the state of health in the body. The iris holds many signs which the trained Iridologist can read to help with their treatment plan.  It is a wonderful tool to help the client to understand their body and mind better and potentially start preventative methods to avoid ill health.  Iridology has been an approved and long-standing technique which is used worldwide by many specialists within the field.  During an iridological consultation, a magnified image of the iris is taken for examination. This image and the client’s details are analysed to verify and reveal any predispositions to weaknesses and strengths in their overall health.

 

Ayurveda

Originating from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘The Knowledge of Life’, Ayurveda is considered to be one of the oldest Holistic Health Systems in the world.  Established in India around 5000 years ago, Ayurveda, when practiced well, will bring about the balance of one’s mind, body and consciousness.  The purpose of Ayurvedic teaching is to maintain a good quality of life, focusing on prevention of imbalance and boosting vitality using herbs and massage to detoxify the body and soul. A well-trained therapist will use their knowledge of a client’s energy and constitution to encourage and maintain the balance of that client’s physical and emotional health.

 

“According to Ayurveda, every individual life is a microcosm of the cosmos.”
