She just loves her job! Helping people improve their health and get to the bottom of what has been ailing them makes Jennifer happy. Using a combination of 'old school' Naturopathy where a comprehensive health history is taken, listening and integrating blood results and a modern science based approach are combined.

PREGNANCY: urinary tract infections, anaemia, poor sleep (insomnia), constipation, thrush (Candida), Gestational Diabetes (GDM), indigestion and reflux, fatigue, fluid retention, blood pressure, anxiety, depression, genital herpes, lowered immunity - colds and flu, and nutritional requirements in pregnancy.

Jennifer specialises in Pregnancy and Post-natal massage. Pregnant clients enjoy the very comfortable and safe Belly Bag (a big bean bag with a hole that supports the tummy, this allows a pregnant woman to lay face down and fully relax). Laying sideways is not necessary. See photos above. Safe essential oils are included in the massage oils, unless a plain massage oil is preferred. Jennifer has given thousands of remedial, relaxation, pregnancy and post-natal massages over the 23 years. Clean, quality towels are used.
