Qualified Nutritional Therapist, Medical Herbalist and Reflexologist offering a unique combination of these therapies.
Judy Patterson is a friendly, experienced and professional therapist with an established reputation for supporting the resolution of a wide range of complex and long-standing health problems using nutritional and herbal medicine.
Judy attends closely to your health history, looking for patterns of symptoms that point to functional imbalances that may have contributed to your presenting complaints. This process of enquiry may be supported with functional laboratory tests. The priority treatment area is then identified and the therapeutic approach is discussed so that client and therapist are working as a team. The use of locally available fresh and whole foods is recommended for all clients, with guidance being given on adding or removing specific foods to suit the condition. Supplementary nutrients and the use of individually prescribed herbal mixtures give focus and intensity to the nutritional treatments.
Many clients find relaxation and energy balancing a valuable component of recovery from stress related health concerns. Judy offers a short session of foot reflexology to complement and support her nutritional and herbal treatment where appropriate. Clients wanting a deeper-level relaxation treatment can book a longer session of reflexology as a stand alone treatment.
Judy has recently completed a pioneering web-based training with the "Institute of Eating Psychology" based in Boulder, Colorado. This Eating Psychology Coach qualification enables Judy to better help clients with stubborn weight, body image and digestion and energy concerns. Consultations include in-depth exploration of background nutritional factors and causes of any chronic stressors that impact both on our food choices and influence how we digest food and store or burn fat.
