The Pillars of the Approach
Exercise and movement
Stress management

Functional medicine offers a natural and holistic approach to understanding dis-ease, and working to bring the body back to balance.  Thereby helping to restore health and wellbeing.  It is an evidence-based, data-driven approach to healthcare, which empowers you to take charge of your own health.  By understanding the body’s innate wisdom and healing power, we work with the body, not against it.

All different types of people, from different backgrounds, are choosing to seek the help of a functional medicine practitioner.  Some want to get their bodies as healthy as possible, so they can live life to the fullest.  Others are elite sports people wanting to enhance their performance and recovery.  Many seek help with chronic health issues, which they have struggled with for years, and have not received the help they desperately need elsewhere.
