Seven Reasons Why We Can Help You To Feel Your Absolute Best.

1. As both a Naturopath and a Chinese Medicine Doctor, our practitioner combines Eastern and Western natural medicine, so you get the best of both worlds with treatments tailor-made for you.

2. We offer streamlined health restoration programs as well as casual visits. Our unique health restoration programs give you the opportunity to have a structure where you know exactly where you are (your current health status), where you're going (your end goal) and approximately how long it will take to get there.

3. Unlike many naturopaths and acupuncturists, we use clinical testing to get to the root cause of your health issues. Our sensitive tests detect imbalances and deficiencies, meaning we can often help to stop ill-health before it turns into disease.

4. Because our practitioner is also a Naturopath, he can explain useful Chinese Medicine concepts in a way that makes sense to the western mind.

5. We are so confident in our services that we offer a fabulous Money Back Guarantee on the first month of our 12 month programs. Reasonable conditions apply, so please scroll to the end if you would like to view these.

6. With over twenty-four years experience in treating clients with a wide range of ailments, you benefit from our practitioner's experience in treating thousands of clients.

7. You can claim a rebate on Acupuncture if you have private health insurance.

We would love to list some of the many fantastic comments and feedback we have received, however government regulations prohibit us from doing so.

Please note that these testimonials do not relate to acupuncture treatment.

(Or 'Why You Don't Need To Be Afraid Of Needles!')

Acupuncture can give you immediate pain relief in a single session (the degree depends upon the severity of your condition) and can address deeper systemic problems over a course of treatments. Acupuncture needles are extremely fine and are often not felt at all when they are inserted. If they are felt, it is usually only a slight twinge or dull ache which very quickly fades. During an Acupuncture treatment, most people sink into a deep, relaxed state, and afterwards feel very refreshed and clear-headed. Please note that Scott is also an experienced massage therapist and is trained in Shiatsu, Myo-Facial, Chinese, Trigger Point, Sports and Deep Tissue massage.

Naturopathy uses thorough clinical testing to discover exactly where your particular imbalances and deficiencies lie. We then create a personal action plan to target and correct your areas of weakness. This includes educating you in altering your diet and lifestyle to help your body to heal itself and to maintain and enhance the progress you make.. You may also be given a herbal formula tailored to your condition and/or vitamins and minerals if your diet is lacking.


Acupuncture treats the body as an 'energy system' and is based on making sure that the energy flows throughout the body are strong, balanced and clear. Chinese medicine calls this energy 'chi' or 'qi' (pronounced "chee") - the vital energy behind all living things. When our Qi becomes unbalanced or blocked, it manifests as 'dis-ease' which can range from mild to chronic depending on the severity of the blockage. Through stimulation of specific points along the energy channels ('meridians') of the body via the insertion of very fine needles, the Qi is restored to its ideal state, thus preventing disease and creating health and wellbeing.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) lists over 40 conditions that can be treated by Acupuncture, ranging across most systems of the body. Acupuncture can also enhance the potency of other therapies, thereby increasing the rate of recovery.

Regular fortnightly sessions are an excellent way to maintain balance in your body and mind so that you stay aligned and feeling great.


Naturopathy aims to maximise the body's own healing abilities by using the natural healing properties of certain plants, together with the science of nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. Naturopathy aims to address the cause of illness rather than simply fix the symptoms, and prefers to use non-invasive treatments with no toxic side-effects. (Sometimes there will be side-effects from nutritional and herbal remedies, however these are usually due to the cleansing action of the remedies and they are temporary. These kinds of side-effects are vastly different to the side-effects of many pharmaceutical drugs, which are often toxic, long-term and debilitating, sometimes requiring further medication to alleviate.)

Naturopathy is particularly good for chronic conditions such as skin and digestive problems (for example, candida and irritable bowel syndrome). It is also highly useful for maintaining health in today's toxic and stressful environment due to the range of herbs available for cleansing the blood and liver and nourishing the nervous system. An emphasis on prevention and minimal side-effects means that it's also an excellent therapy for children.
