Lifestyle Prescriptions Health Coach

Lifestyle medicine is now gaining ground with the medical profession and other health professionals, providing excellent results.

With Lifestyle Prescriptions, however, we go much further than the more common lifestyle medicine and green prescriptions because this work offers as addition to nutritional, exercise, support and stress management, a highly specific mind/body/social/beliefs/emotions analysis, lifestyle prescriptions based on your specific symptoms and root cause, and therapies as necessary to release or make life easier for just about any physical or emotional symptom you have challenges with right now.

Personal growth and deep insights into the root cause of your health challenges are part of your outcomes, plus changes in your presenting symptoms, if we work together to achieve results.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen therapy is gentle and good for babies to frail elderly and all in between. There is no manipulation and Bowen has a potent effect like Osteopathic or Chiropractic treatments on muscular skeletal problems - sore backs, shoulders, headaches etc and much more. 3-6 treatments only usually needed. I often combine EFT if appropriate.

EFT Therapy

I am an advanced Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner. EFT is a rapid and profound 'tapping' therapy that can reduce trauma, emotional upsets, phobias etc in a short time - the effect felt in minutes usually. We 'Try it on Everything'! including physical pain and problems, not just emotional. 1-2 sessions only are usually needed. I teach you the technique so you can do it yourself.
