Our clinic has been created around the principle that the human body will heal itself when given the right resources. Those resources can be varied and many. We use methods that have been used naturopathically for centuries – just with a very modern twist. We value the philosophy behind early naturopaths (nature cure) and imagine our clinic feels more like one that may have existed a hundred years ago. We have created a place where an individual can come, convalesce and re-vitalise.

We base our clinic’s services on the five elements of life – water (steam), air (oxygen, hyperbarics and ozone), food (nutrition and herbal medicine), sunlight (heat and light) and the fifth element of electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF). These elements do not produce a cure outright but assist the body to remove any obstacles to health – allowing a healing momentum to arise and thus enabling the body to return to homeostasis. This approach gives the body and mind the care and space to heal itself.

Each client starts their treatments with a base-line biochemical map. We value this information as essential for identifying and measuring that which may be blocking optimal health, while indicating how far from balance you are and guiding therapy decisions.

Periodic remeasuring of baselines is used during the process to evaluate the benefits of treatment. These measurements are also used whilst educating our clients to understand and promote their self-healing. This work creates a paradigm shift – this is not orthodox or pseudo-medicine and our methodology is not an alternative.

Our clinic hisses, pumps and reverberates. Clients move from room to room as they are tested, shaken, heated, pulsed, pressurised, massaged, manipulated and thoroughly pampered.

Our work allows the body to effectively adapt in its healing process. We perceive symptoms as the body’s natural process of trying to change and adapt to its own ‘dis-ease’. We support individuals with the resources and skill to independently resolve this natural process. This is truly a Darwinian approach, providing the resources for our clients to adapt more effectively and therefore return to homeostasis and a state of self-regulation.

Our Story

  1. Worthy of Sharing

    In telling our story we hope to remind, demonstrate and reinforce the worth and efficacy of the Naturopathic traditional system of care. It’s a great story and worthy of sharing!

  2. Grand Strategy

    At Core we have always envisaged a ‘grand’ strategy as to how we wanted to help people. From the clinics inception our goal was to provide for our clients the most up to date and efficient healing system available to us.

  3. Clinic Concept

    The clinic concept began with a conversation that identified the need for better health management of chronic disease, recognising the fact that mainstream systems had failed to understand how to effectively manage those with chronic illness or how to monitor ‘healthy’ people, too reduce their risk of developing it.

  4. New Paradigm Wellness

    The outcome was the development of a new paradigm wellness system based around the body’s capacity to maintain balance (homeostasis) or health.

  5. Better Health Outcomes

    As Natural Healthcare Practitioners, our great potential is not in our equipment, ‘healing hands’, herbal medicines or proprietary supplements. It is our experience, know-how and the way we think that sets us apart and defines our profession.

Our Approach

Our ‘deceptively simple’ approach is to build and ensure a healing surplus of energy – you can trace any disease to a disruption of cellular oxygen delivery, energy production and DNA expression.

All recommendations and therapies at the clinic are based on measuring the governing control mechanisms of health. Are the right switches being turned on or off? Is the signal getting through? Is your system overburdened, blocked or lacking in some way?

In practice this means ensuring the foundations of good health are addressed. Things like the capacity for transport and exchange, pH levels, hydration, circulation, energy production, detoxification capacity and immune function.

This is when you can graduate to a deeper sense that illness is purposeful, that the body recalibrates through fever, has its own mechanisms to deal with inflammation, oxidative stress and toxins, and that when we recognise the body’s innate wisdom – healing can take place.

ProfessionalNaturopathic Medicine

A system of care whose focus is on health maintenance and its regulation, rather than one focused on disease and the use of medications to suppress its symptoms.

PerfectionOptimal Health

The next ‘big leap’ in the field of healthcare will not come from any new device or discovery but from the broad adoption of traditional approaches that support the body’s self-healing ability and capacity for adaptation.

PredictionThe Future of Medicine

The directors see the future of health care based around a preventative or wellness model where people will proactively seek options, make choices and strategize for the prevention and treatment of chronic illness.
