Naturopathic medicine uses a holistic approach to managing health, well being and beauty. We all want to feel beautiful both inside and out, so a number of therapies/protocols may be combined to stimulate and support each client.
At Rigenerate, it definitely isn't one size fits all, and we will gravitate towards using a combination of therapies to assist in the flourishing or healing process.
Naturopathy promotes the concept that nature heals, and the treatment of the whole person is more beneficial & holistic over treating just the symptoms of dis-ease. It is also a safe and non-invasive science for boosting health and vitality, using both traditional and modern techniques.
Rigenerate's goal is to restore to preserve and/or restore health and vitality in the simplest, most beautiful and bespoke ways possible.
Beauty care is self care as far we are concerned, so if you need a little pampering we can offer you beautiful, healing & relaxing facials depending on your specific needs. Our key is to create client specific care and that is exactly what will happen for you.
Eyelash curling & tinting
The focus here is on how we nourish the body via our daily choices. As Hippocrates said, 'Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food'.
Ayurveda is a science and ancient healing system originating in India. It can get incredibly sophisticated but at RiGenerate we like to tap into some of the more basic yet still vital areas of Ayurveda to assist in each individual's journey
Blood Pressure (BP)/Pulse Analysis
Blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate are important tools in health risk assessments (HRAs). These two indicators will normally be noted as part of all consultations. In addition to this, Orthostatic blood pressure (measurement of BP from a laying down to a upright position) may also be measured depending on the analysis needed. Standard BP measurements form part of all health consultations.
Urine Analysis involves taking a small sample and checking for some key indicators such as white blood cells, red blood cells, and glucose to name a few. We will also look at colour, odour, clarity. This test is usually performed as a routine part of all health consultations.
Constitutional Hydrotherapy and Hydrotherapy
This form of water therapy is uses hot and cold water to stimulate different areas and organs of the body. Water is used as a medium for healing, and constitutional hydrotherapy specifically uses hot and cold pack treatments over the abdomen and liver area. This treatment is employed over a series of sessions to kick start and support the body's own vitality.
Body Work/Posture Analysis
Muscular aches and pains can adversely effect the quality of everyday life. We use essential oils and massage + other techniques to help ease tension and put some comfort back into each day.
Postural awareness is important. We can help you to identify any areas which needs work, and in turn ensure that you give your body the love and attention it deserves.
The body's lymphatic system forms an important part of the circulatory system. Along with assisting in blood filtration and being a key player in the immune system, good lymphatic drainage is important for health. We can aid this by encouraging a sluggish system to do its job more effectively.
Peat/Castor Oil Pack Treatments
The use of Moor Mud Peat Packs and Castor Oil Packs, can help muscle aches and pains, sluggish organs and boost vitality.
Moor mud peat has been well documented both scientifically and anecdotally as having detox properties. It is used in a convenient pack coupled with heat on and around targeted areas of the body.
Castor oil has been used for hundreds of years around the world. Typically you may have heard of it as a remedy for constipation. Castor oil packs also coupled with heat can be used for many conditions afflicting the body from digestion and menstrual problems to arthritic aches and pains.
The eyes are the windows to the soul - so they say. Iridology is an exploratory therapy that involves analysing the irises using a special scope or by taking high definition images using a camera. Eye colour, and other markers found in the irises may be useful in identifying predispositions to various illnesses which may or may not be familial.
Homeopathic medicine works on the principle that like cures like (Similia similibus curentur). The concept is interesting and involves kick starting the healing process healing by administration of a plant/mineral material in the form of a small pill (pillule). Homeopathic remedies do not contain any of the actual plant/mineral originally used in the process of making the remedy. What we end up with is the energy of that plant/mineral, meaning there is no chemically active material left but rather an energetic blueprint.
Acute homeopathy refers to healing short term - abrupt conditions, which need immediate attention - e.g. colds, bites, stings, muscle aches/pains ligament & tendon tears, fevers, food poisoning, and anything which isn't chronic.
Herbs have been used for thousands of years across many empires for their healing properties. Herbs can be used internally or externally to treat disease, as well as to stimulate and support the body's natural well being and healing processes.
Flower remedies are a beautiful tool to boost vitality and help heal the body and mind. We use flower remedies as well as to assist and support in the healing of emotional and mental imbalances within ourselves.
Using tools to heal those parts of ourselves related to the mind and spirit can be essential in dealing with the short and long term stressors in life. Emotional freedom technique (EMT), Emotrance and Meditation are just some of the approaches that can be used.
Kinesiology is a communication tool used to convey/interpret messages using the muscles. It can help with mental and physical problems by identifying what and where the imbalances within the body exist. Your body via the brain in nervous system knows what it needs in order to be balanced, healthy and happy. We use the Touch for Health approach developed by Dr. George Goodheart in the 1960s, integrating concepts from both Eastern and Western medicine in a non invasive way.
Do you want to aim higher and achieve more in life? Do you want to simply appreciate life or understand yourself better? Are there areas that you feel need improvement? Lifestyle coaching could be just the thing to help you identify what it is you want/need in order to help you to meet your goals.
Do you need to talk with someone impartial? Do you need to voice your feelings, opinions and views with no judgement? Sometimes people just simply need to talk. Communication is a key process in healing both mind and body. Basic counselling forms an important part of any Naturopathic treatment and we are always here to listen and help you work through your problems.
In addition to the more recognised forms of therapy listed, we also offer Colour Therapy, Crystal Therapy, Chakra Balancing and Feng Shui .
Colour is all around us and whether we believe it or not, essential to our well being. Big corporations, marketing corps and advertisers recognise and understand this very well. For a long time they have tapped into colour therapy to influence how or what we buy and so learning about colours and what they mean could be an interesting and healing addition to your life.
Crystals are pretty much all around us, beneath us or being worn by us. Many cultures believe that the electrical energy contained within crystals can impact us on a mental and physical level.
Chakras (spinning wheels) are energy centres situated all over the body, with the largest centres running along the length of the body. Each major chakra is related to an endocrine gland, and in India and other parts of Asia, it is believed that chakra health is vital to well being.
Feng Shui is the Far Eastern practice of art and science combined to achieve balance and harmony within our lives. It uses symbols, positioning of objects, orientation, and colour to positively impact, and influence not only the quality of our lives but our life paths.
