Skin conditions

We'd love to hear from you.

Contact us for a response within 24 hours.

  • Are you struggling to improve your psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, acne or other skin condition?
  • Or are you simply looking for a way to non invasively and painlessly rejuvenate your skin , because it’s dull, lines are appearing or you’re looking more tired and aged.

The human skin is an amazing organ. And like all organs of our body it has multiple important functions and it interacts with every other part of us.

Your skin’s function may be affected by :

  • Your lifestyle
  • Your diet
  • Your hormone levels
  • The medicine and supplements you take
  • Your allergies and food sensitivities
  • What you apply to your skin
  • Substances that come into contact with your skin
  • Your sun exposure
  • Your genetics
  • Your intestinal flora
  • Your age

As you can see due to this array of variables being involved and your unique situation it’s unlikely that you will find a magic bullet, but with a multi- prong approach and a desire to treat the cause, help is at hand.

I have professionally been treating skin and enhancing its function since graduating as a Naturopath in 1993. Using functional pathology testing to try and find the cause. Utilising evidence based – supplements like specific pro-biotics, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and western herbal medicines along with dietary and lifestyle changes.

As an Acupuncturist I have also completed further studies in Cosmetic Acupuncture. Acupuncture is another way to again treat the skin and create physiological change. I use low level laser to stimulate the Acupuncture points instead of needles, and it’s completely painless.

The three modalities I’m trained in ; Naturopathy, Acupuncture and Dermal Therapies have all given me a unique view of the skin and its ability to repair and regenerate when the correct techniques are applied.

Personalised Approach

Everyone is different, the reason you have a particular health concern is not necessarily the reason someone else has that same condition. Because of this I take an individual and tailored approach to your care plan. Your care plan may include many Naturopathic approaches including :- positive lifestyle changes like making dietary changes, therapeutic exercise , sleep hygiene and stress reduction techniques. Balancing hormones, improving gut health, supporting adrenal function, and addressing nutritional deficiencies. Organising pathology testing, reading current tests that you may already have...and the list goes on, depending on your individual needs and situation. This is definitely not a cookie cutter approach.

I may even need to concurrently refer you to another healthcare professional for specific advice.

If required you will also receive pathology request forms via post or email, and pathology kits via post. These typically may include saliva testing for hormones, nutritional deficiency testing, hair mineral analysis, food sensitivity testing, complete digestive stool analysis to test lower gut function and range of other standard and functional tests. Please note tests are an extra cost, you will pay for these tests via the lab running the tests and its entirely your choice. Reports will be sent to me and we will then discuss the findings. And then additions to your initial appointment recommendations can be made with this new information.
