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.

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.

Lucy works with various naturopathic therapies to help get your body back into balance. Naturopathy is a very holistic therapy as all aspects of a person are considered, including the emotional, mental and physical.
Lucy graduated from the University of Westminster with a first-class honours degree in Naturopathy in 2010. As part of her studies she learnt about naturopathic nutrition, detoxing and cleansing, therapeutic massage, lymphatic cleansing, naturopathic hydrotherapy, BachFlower remedies and other fascinating natural health knowledge that everyone should know about!
Lucy has always been interested in complementary medicine, particularly the effects food can have on mood. She discovered Naturopathy when living in Australia in her mid-20s and a few years later took the plunge into returning to university and retraining. She is also a Reiki level 2 practitioner which she incorporates into her naturopathic practice.
Her approach in practice is very holistic, exploring the mental/emotional, physical and biochemical aspects of a person and how this will be affecting their health. Her treatment plans are based on this holistic approach and she really enjoys working with her patients to encourage them to make the changes that are achievable for them.
Lucy is registered with the General Council and Register of Naturopaths and is fully insured to practice. She is currently studying for a Masters in Nutritional Therapy and hopes to have her MSc by 2016.
