Recovery from Lifestyle and Stress Illnesses

Introducing the Therapeutic Benefits of Mindbody Therapy and Wellbeing Coaching for Lifestyle/Stress Illnesses, Fibromyalgia, M.E. and Chronic Fatigue

As mindbody practitioners, we work with the principles that your mind and body are intrinsically connected; they are one. What effects the body also affects the mind, and when the mind is not at ease, this severely impacts the body and can often end in disease. What we think and how we live has a profound effect on our body, and mindbody therapy treats the root causes of the problems, not just the symptoms.


Emotions play a significant part in triggering our stress response, which has a considerable influence on our immune system; this, in turn, changes how our body copes and changes our physical and mental health. Unless we address our physical, mental, and emotional health as a whole, we cannot fully heal.


We are here to support you using a step by step program in a gentle and safe way to recover your health and vitality.

When considering the principles of Natural Medicine, there are 

so​me features common to all illness/disease:


  • A​dverse Childhood Experience
