The meaning behind our name

Wellness and healing are but one part of this journey, an ongoing thread that we must acknowledge, nurture and tend to. Wellness is about how we live, it’s about connection. Everything is connected – our lifestyle, our food, our environment. A thread links a number of separate elements and holds all the parts together. True health and wellness encompasses our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and by interweaving these together, with the help of natural medicine, we can create happier, healthier lives.

About Sharon Pittorino

Sharon is a degree qualified and certified Naturopath, graduating from Endeavour College of Natural Health with a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy).

Combining both the art and science of medicine, Sharon blends traditional naturopathic knowledge with modern evidence-based research to prevent and treat illness.

Treating holistically, she uses herbal and nutritional medicine together with dietary and lifestyle advice to develop individualised treatment plans specifically tailored to your needs. In line with naturopathic principles Sharon is a strong believer in our body’s own ability to overcome illness if given the right tools and conditions.

Wellness is an ongoing path and Sharon’s enthusiasm and passion for complementary therapies and a holistic approach to health and wellbeing allows her to assist her clients to regain, achieve and actively maintain optimal health, vitality and balance in their lives.

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness and healing that considers the whole person (body, mind and spirit) and threads these together to find the innate point of balance within each of us.

In this way we look beyond the symptoms to identify and treat the underlying cause of illness rather than just the particular area of concern or disease.

Based on the principle that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself, given the right circumstances and conditions, and with a strong connection to vital energy and the natural world, naturopathy utilises the healing power of nature to support and facilitate the body’s self healing processes.

At The Wellness Thread we acknowledge that all bodies are unique and our focus is on creating personalised client care, centred on maintenance of health and prevention of disease, whilst looking for the most natural and least invasive therapies to address your health concerns. Naturopathy also respects and takes into consideration any other medications or treatments you may already be receiving.

We work with you, aiming to educate, inspire and empower you to achieve your optimal health outcomes so that you can live the life you deserve – one filled with more wellness, energy, balance and vitality.

What can you expect from your visit?

During your first consultation we will take a thorough wellness history to enable us to put together a picture of your whole health. We’ll discuss your various body systems, lifestyle, diet, stress and environmental impacts and may conduct physical examinations such as vital signs and blood pressure. Examining your iris, nails, tongue, skin and hair offers additional clues as to how your body is currently functioning.

We will then prepare a treatment plan, specifically tailored to your needs and budget, which may include the following prescribed therapies:


  • Herbal Formulations: this traditional form of healing is both powerful and effective and is based on time-tested validity and scientific knowledge and rationale

  • Nutritional Supplements: using practitioner range products of the highest standards and controls set by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) supported by scientific trials and studies

  • Dietary Advice: individualised food guidelines to provide a balanced intake of important nutrients whilst providing you with delicious recipe ideas and tips

  • Lifestyle Recommendations: helping you prioritise, implement and combine various healthy living techniques to increase longevity and quality of life

  • Flower Essence Therapy: vibrational remedies that work on an energetic level to address emotional wellness

See what our clients are saying about us...


I started seeing Sharon in 2015 to help with my recent diagnosis of Guttate Psoriasis.  Sharon was very thorough in asking about my health history and prescribed a treatment plan which not only involved supplements but dietary and lifestyle advice.  One thing I love about Sharon is that she really listens to you.  I have seen naturopaths in the past and have been prescribed liquid herbs which I just cannot stomach and have been repeatedly told that this is the best form of treatment.  Sharon listened to me and provided me with an alternative to the liquid herbs that I knew I would continue.  I noticed a significant improvement when putting the vitamins and her advice all together. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sharon as, not only is she knowledgeable and easy to talk to, she is very passionate about what she does. - Ange




I came to Sharon for an alternative treatment for Blastocystis spp. (an intestinal parasite) after being diagnosed by a GP who wanted to treat me with a very strong antibiotic, which I didn't want to take. Sharon devised a thorough treatment plan that cleared the symptoms and I'm happy to report that I haven't had a relapse since. - Chantal
