About Juanita

I didn’t always know what I wanted to be “when I grew up” …. and had you asked me as a child what I wanted to be I probably would have said vet but then as I grew older I toyed with the possibility of being a forensic anthropologist so clearly I had a bit of internal conflict going on when it came to choosing my future career!   I grew up in a country town on an orchard and always had been very healthy.  No broken bones, lots of stitches but otherwise in tact :), a healthy diet and a strong affinity with nature, healing and animals.  When I left school, although I could have studied whatever I chose I still didn’t have that one thing that filled my heart with passion so I did an office admin course and decided to travel until found what I wanted to do.  It wasn’t until I got extremely sick in England and was left feeling very disgruntled with the medical system that I decided to study Naturopathy.  The advice I had been given by my doctor to alleviate the crippling stomach cramps and vomiting (that had been caused by eating off mussels) was to go home and suck a mint!  Needless to say I wasn’t happy with this advice so started to do my own research and decided to fix myself and that is how I came to study Naturopathy!

I am incredibly passionate about what I do and am constantly upgrading my skills so I can better help my clients.  I believe everything is connected, there is no clear cut solution to our health, so in my treatments I focus on the best outcome for YOU.  We are all different, so I tailor to your needs.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Naturopathy and have been a Naturopath now for 17 years and I still love what I do.  I am also a Reiki Master, Frequency Specific Microcurrent Practitioner, Food & Spirit Practitioner and most recently have furthered my studies in nutrition to become a Metabolic Balance Practitioner.   So what do these qualifications mean to you?  They mean I can combine all of my knowledge into formulating the best treatment plan for you!
