Naturopath, Bowen Therapist and Scar Tissue Release
My name is Socrates Mistos and I am a qualified and experienced Naturopath, Bowen Therapist and McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release practitioner.
As a natural healthcare practitioner, my aim is to significantly enhance the health and vitality of my clients by identifying and addressing the root causes. Given the right environment, our body has an amazing self-healing capability! I am here to guide you in creating the right environment to encourage self-healing and moving towards better health and vitality.
I've had a lifelong interest in health and wellness, especially in the prevention and treatment of illness by utilising the body's inherent healing capabilities. This led me to study a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Naturopathy at Endeavour College of Natural Health. This four year full-time degree program involved extensive studies in health sciences (biological and clinical sciences, pathology, biochemistry, nutritional biochemistry and pharmacology) and advanced studies in diet, clinical nutritional medicine and clinical herbal medicine, including naturopathic philosophy, principles and practice.
After completing my Naturopathy degree, I undertook studies in the field of bodywork and completed the Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy through Bowen Training Australia. This gentle, yet very effective technique has given me an additional tool to address the root cause of many ailments that could not be as effectively treated through naturopathic treatment alone. In addition to the Bowenwork, I undertook further studies in the McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release Technique (MSTR®) to help address pain and restrictions caused by scar tissue.
As a Naturopath, I have particular interest and experience in the following areas:
- Digestive health
- Respiratory conditions
- Skin conditions
- Hormone imbalances
- Thyroid conditions
- Improving energy levels
- Improving sleep quality
- Improving general well-being
- Optimising the immune system
- Pain management
- Weight management
- Men's health
- General anxiety and depression support.
As a Bowen Therapist, I have knowledge and experience in addressing the following areas:
- Neck pain and restrictions
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain and restrictions
- Elbow and wrist issues
- Knee and ankle pain
- Pelvic issues
- Respiratory restrictions
- Headaches and migraines
- Menstrual issues
- General pain
- Sports injuries
- Stress reduction
- Better sleep quality
I look forward to taking the journey with you and guiding you to better health and vitality.
