Providing a quality holistic and natural health experience addressing you as the person – not just the symptoms – Usha will conduct a comprehensive initial consultation to explore emotional, physical and lifestyle factors which may be affecting your health and well being.
Feeling tired, in pain or overwhelmed is not our natural state. Usha strongly believes everyone can feel better – given the right environment, the body has an innate ability to heal and resolve disease. Supporting all areas of wellness, Usha prefer to provide simple solutions initially, including dietary modifications, and home remedies. Addressing physical and emotional well being are two starting points on your journey to better health.
