Trained in the philosophies, principles and practices of western naturopathic medicine and medical science, Rowenna practices with a holistic view toward health and illness. She has a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), and is a member of the National Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA) and the Homeopathic Education and Research Association (HERA).
Rowenna has a particular interest in mental health and wellbeing, and has expertise treating such conditions as depression, grief and loss, stress and anxiety, stress caused by relationship or parenting issues, PMS, post-natal depression, menopause, sleep problems in adults and children, pain (e.g. migraine, menstrual, muscular-skeletal pain and inflammation), fatigue, thyroid imbalances, and auto-Immune conditions.
Naturopathy works well with other healing modalities. As part of a truly integrative approach, Rowenna works together with Elisabeth (Acupuncture/Chinese Medicine Practitioner) in the areas of female reproductive health and fertility, and thyroid and adrenal conditions.
