Welcome to Chamomile NaturopathyWe are an inspired collective of community minded and talented health care practitioners. We offer Bellingen and the greater Mid North Coast, our caring support on the path to your greatest well being.
Naturopathic and Herbal Support
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that our body’s have an inherent ability to heal themselves. Naturopaths utilise a variety of modalities to help remove any obstacles that may be preventing the body from returning to a place of balance.
Herbal Medicines are used to help support, nourish, improve and enhance our natural body functions such as stimulating immunity, improving lymphatic drainage, enhancing digestion, supporting liver detoxifcation, nourishing the nervous system and bringing balance to the female reproductive system.
Good food is one of the pillars of health. You are what you eat couldn’t be further from the truth as it is your food which provides just about all of our building blocks, vitamins, minerals and energy sources. It is also much more, food is meant to be delicious, enjoyable, nourishing, nurturing and for many the centre of family, sharing and fun. It is also an aspect of our life where we can become really proactive in our health, making positive day to day choices.
Nutrition really does begin from the ground up with fresh, local, diverse and organic food being the key stones for optimised health. We work with people so they are feeling inspired about the food they are eating and the food choices they are making.
There is magic in human touch, and each of us need it at some point. Remedial Massage is a broad description for body work ranging from calming, relaxing, gentle treatment to more specific and deeper massage sessions focussed on eleviating pain and tension.
Deeper tissue remedial massage can help bring relief for people experiencing headaches, back pain, neck pain, sciatica, shoulder issues, muscle strains and lots more . Massage also helps release the underlying stress and tension so often held in our body, leaving you feeling relaxed and grounded.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams, about the weight of a 5 cent piece, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it’s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
CST is of benefit to everyone from babies to children, adults and the elderly. It is a very gentle technique and can be of benefit to those experiencing TMJ syndrome, migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, learning difficulties and many developmental and behavioural issues in babies and children.
We’d like to introduce you to the Chamomile Naturopathy team.
