All services are individually tailored so that health is restored as rapidly, safely, and easily as possible.



Welcome to Good Health Naturally which is the aim of Sylvia's Natural Therapy Practice.

Sylvia has had a focused interest in personal transformation and change, and over the past 32 years has studied extensively in the fields of Natural Therapies, Homoeopathy, Meditation, Yoga , Inner Growth, and Self Healing.
Sylvia is passionate about assisting the body's own natural ability to heal and rebalance itself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.


Naturopathy is a system of treating disease and disorders based on assisting nature.It does this by the use of a wide range of modalities such as homoeopathy, dietary changes, massage, flower essences, herbal medicines, Reiki, nutritional supplementation, exercise and relaxation.

Naturopathy is wholistic medicine which means that it evaluates the total health of the person, looking for ways to improve the whole general health and well-being, as well as the specific symptoms that might have initiated seeing a practitioner.


Is a totally safe, non-toxic system of natural medicine which stimulates the bodys own defence and immune system so that health is restored.

Homoeopathy treats the underlying causes of illness. It has a wholistic approach, taking into account the individual differences of each person together with all the symptoms they may present with. Remarkable improvements have been recorded with this treatment in common acute illnesses, a large range of chronic diseases, as well as behavioural and emotional problems.

A Homoeopathic Preventative Program is available for your children to assist in keeping them safe and protected. They can begin the program at any time, from as early as one month of age.

Homoeopathic medicines can safely be used for everyone including babies, pregnant women, seniors, and family pets.

Flower Essences
Sylvia uses the Bach Flower Remedies; the Australian Bush Flower Essences and her own Forest Essences.

Flower Essences can powerfully assist in resolving emotional crises and negative states, while at the same time encouraging us to find the strength within ourselves.

When overwhelming feelings or negative states persist, physical or mental symptoms may develop, such as tirdness, migraines or depression. By subtly treating the emotions, flower essences are actually addressing the true underlying causes of the symptoms.


Provides an accurate diagnosis of the physical and emotional health of the whole person, from the study of the iris of the eye.

The iris is the portion of the eye showing colour. It reveals body constitution, inherent strengths and weaknesses, health levels, and transitions that take place in a person's body according to their way of life.


Meditation is the practice of focusing your attention on one thing at a time in order to still the mind. Meditation works on many levels from simply relaxing the body to being used as an aid to healing, maintaining wellbeing, or as a tool for the journey within.

Begin your Meditation Tuition on the Tuesday/Friday OF YOUR CHOICE


Reiki is a 'hands on' technique that taps into the unlimited supply of "life force energy". It treats the whole person, improving health and enhancing the quality of life.

Reiki heals by raising the vibratory level of the person's energy field. This allows the "out of balance" or negative energy to fall away. By this occuring, Reiki clears, rebalances and heals the person's energy, thus allowing the life force to flow on healthily.

Natural Fertility Management

Fertility may be greatly assisted naturally by the use of rebalancing homoeopathic, herbal and flower essence remedies. Sylvia will prescribe remedies constitutionally endeavouring to get the body back to a perfect balance so that pregnancy has more chance of occuring. Sometimes some rebalancing body massage is of some assistance as well.

Allergy Testing and Treatment

The treatment for allergies is best done by constitutional homoeopathy geared to desensitizing the immune system so that it is not as "reactive" to the allergens. Treatment is simple, effective and safe.
