At the clinic we use our professional expertise to help guide you through the maze of supplements, if you need them and what type to consider.

Herbal remedies

Herbal remedies are a traditional natural healing method. We use herbs in a variety of forms such as supplements, tea infusions or tinctures at the clinic. At the clinic we use herbs to manage acute or chronic infections, detoxify the body, stimulate immunity or sooth the digestive tract.

Hydrotherapy

The general aim of hydrotherapy is to stimulate blood flow. This is important because blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the tissues and in turn carries cellular waste away. We use hydrotherapy as a tonic, to detoxify the body and to stimulate vitality. At the clinic we use hydrotherapy in a number of different ways. This includes a variety of methods such wraps, compresses, showers, sprays and baths.
