Our clinic and experienced practitioners aim to provide a supportive environment where a woman is listened to and cared for.  Blood testing, functional pathology such as salivary hormone testing, and clinical assessment can be used to help work out what might be going wrong within the hormonal system that is causing an array of symptoms. By supporting the body with nutrition, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, acupuncture and other supportive therapies, a women’s body can come back into balance.
