Naturopathy

 
Naturopathy is a natural system of health-care that empowers the individual to take responsibility for their own health and well-being by diet and lifestyle management. It incorporates a variety of modalities such as diet, nutrition, herbal medicine, mineral therapy, flower essences and lifestyle management. It helps in promoting the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of an individual person. In contemporary society, Naturopathy has adapted to fit into our modern lifestyle. The demands of modern living such as stress (different types like biochemical, physical, emotional, geopathic), negative emotions, agricultural chemicals and nutritional defiencies in micro and macro nutrients all contribute to disease or imbalances in the individual.

What are Natural Therapies?


"VIS MEDICATRIX NATURAE" or the Healing Power of Nature is fundamental to the principles of natural therapies. The healing process is activated by inherent natural processes that act to return the organism to a state of equilibrium.

Natural Therapies promote and enhance healing by their ability to assist Nature to maintain balance, harmony and wholeness. The Doctrine of the Vital Force respects the laws of nature. Nature has the tendency to restore all things to a state of balance and order. This is evident in the natural world. For example, the regeneration of a forest after a bushfire as the order is restored. In the Indian Ayurvedic system, health is a state of balance where mind, body and environment are in harmony.

The Natural therapist acknowledges that the human being is made uo of different dimensions. Healing must address the individual as a whole made up of physical, mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual dimensions. The orientation of natural healing is holistic and acts on balancing life's energies, rather than a specific sector of the individual.

According to the World Health Organisation, health is defined as "a state of physical, mental and social well-being, a state in which a person feels at every moment of living a joy and zest for life, a sense of fulfilment and awareness of harmony with the universe."

Health is not only freedom from disease but an integration of the body, mind and spirit. Measures of health are vitality, enthusiasm, aliveness and happiness. In regard to this, all levels of the human being are taken into consideration.

Naturopaths look at these elements and encourage them all rather than just one aspect to bring out positive changes. Health is not only absence from physical symptoms but an ability and willingness to change.

Massage


During a massage treatment, a range of hand techniques are used to stimulate different parts of the body and specific body trigger points which generally hold tension. This helps to restore and balance the blood flow and energy in the body.

In a therapeutic massage commonly used hand techniques include rubbing, chopping, kneading, rolling, pushing, digging, grasping, plucking, vibrating, pressing and pinching.

Massage is effective in the treatment of a range of pain conditions such as headaches, period pain, musculo-skeletal conditions as well as common ailments such as sinus problems, colds etc.

In fact, caring through touch, Massage has been shown to encourage the release of endorphins - chemicals that affect development in children as well as emotional and physical well being in adults. Massage is a wonderfully relaxing experience and in addition can be an effective treatment for a range of physical conditions.
