Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine is one of the world's oldest forms of medicine. It utilises the medicinal properties of plants to encourage natural healing on a physical and emotional level. Herbal Medicine stimulates the body’s natural healing ability and helps the removal of obstacles blocking these processes. It does not mask unpleasant symptoms but instead gets to the root of the issue. Herbal Medicine can treat a wide range of symptoms and has effective tools for the treatment of conditions affecting every body system.

Katie is trained in Western Herbal Medicine, where she studied phytochemistry, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, and differential diagnosis to degree level. She also incorporates influences from the rich, authentic traditional Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda. Katie practices with organic herbs, as this is central to her belief that a plant's true healing potential can only be realised when the plant is utilised in its most natural form.
