Herbal medicine is the use of whole plant extracts to help treat the symptoms and causes of ill-health. It was the main form of health care in Europe until the advent of pharmaceutical drugs. There is evidence of plants being used as medicine dating back thousands of years, and in many parts of the world people still largely depend on medicinal plants. Modern herbal medicine combines traditional knowledge and practice with scientific research into the therapeutic effects of plant medicine.
I trained in Western Herbal Medicine for four years, graduating with a BSc in Herbal Medicine, and was given an award for best final year student. My training included orthodox medical skills, clinical practice and a detailed knowledge of medicinal plants. I have been in practice for nearly ten years, and have gained a wealth of experience in helping people with a wide range of both acute and long-term illness.
Neal’s Yard in Bath has a extensive selection of medicinal tinctures and dried herbs, which can be dispensed in the shop. If you are looking for help with first aid for minor ailments, you can have a short chat with me in private, and where possible I can write a prescription for you. If your condition is more complex I advise a consultation. If you are taking prescribed drugs, I choose herbs which do not interact with your medication.

Jon Bauer is a somatic psychotherapist and clinical hypnotherapist seeing adults, couples and children in the Bath region who are dealing with trauma, chronic pain, and general emotional difficulty. Jon works to help clients release unprocessed trauma that’s curtailing their quality of life, and also uses psycho-education and attachment-based therapy to support individuals to live a fuller and more nourishing life. The process is less about talking through the past, and more about dealing with it as it shows up in the body and in the present circumstances of life.
The process is becoming more and more popular and gaining a huge amount of respect as a body-oriented modality that brings about lasting change at a rapid but manageable pace.
Jon is himself very interested in meditation and mindfulness, as well as learning all the myriad ways to bring the body mind and life into balance and thriving.

I am an experienced kinesiology practitioner, certified by the Kinesiology Association. After kinesiology helped to get to the root of my son’s health issues over 10 years ago, I decided to change careers and train as a kinesiologist myself. I am a firm believer in the power of the body to heal itself when it is rebalanced and given the right tools and help.
My aim is to empower people to regain control of their health and to provide the appropriate support to help you do this. My recommendations and guidance may include lifestyle changes, taking nutritional supplements and/or flower remedies, eliminating certain foods from your diet, etc.
I see all clients but particularly enjoy working with children and young people and seeing how they and their families benefit from kinesiology. I make sure children’s sessions are informal, relaxed and fun!
Some of the health issues I have helped people with include: stress and anxiety, digestive disorders, back pain, migraines, low energy, low immunity, depression, eczema, asthma, learning difficulties, menopausal symptoms, weight loss/gain.
Feel free to contact me before you book an appointment. I am happy to talk either on the phone or face-to-face to see how kinesiology and/or reiki might help you or your child.
