What clients say

Around 2008/2009 I was diagnosed with a few health issues. I chose to take a holistic approach in managing these issues which is why I started seeing Cath, and I have been seeing her regularly ever since. Her knowledge base is excellent and her calm, nurturing manner is a pleasure to deal with. I saw results quickly, which is why Cath is still, and always will be, a part of my healthcare management team. I highly recommend a visit!

 Cath’s kindness, honesty and empathy are well matched with the expertise in her field of practice, as well as an obvious passion for the work she does. She helped me to make a major shift in the way I was approaching my health and wellbeing, which led to a better balance in my life as a whole. As a result I became pregnant after years of trying, and am now blessed with a beautiful daughter. I am forever grateful and highly recommend Cath’s treatments.

 I can’t thank Cath enough for her support and professionalism. I felt utterly dreadful when I walked through her door ten weeks ago. But now I feel like a new woman! I would highly recommend her to any pending client.

I have been coming to see Cath for about four months now, hoping to lose weight and recharge my batteries! I have lost over 12kgs and dropped two dress sizes. I feel more energetic and alive. It’s done wonders for my self-esteem.
