Lauren is a Naturopath and Fertility Massage Therapist with a BHSc Naturopathy and a Certificate in Fertility Massage. A true advocate of holistic health and wellbeing. By seeing hundreds of clients, Lauren recognises that only a truly holistic approach can achieve outstanding results. For this reason, Lauren has furthered her studies to incorporate fertility massage, yoga & meditation for a mind-body-spirit approach.
Lauren believes that rather than merely surviving we must thrive in health. She encourages her patients to honour themselves, their health and commit to their journey towards optimum well-being and a vibrant full life. Above all, Lauren believes that the road to health should not be complex, overwhelming or confusing. Her approach encompasses practical lifestyle changes, nourishing foods, gut healing, herbal medicine, emotional release, massage & yoga aimed at igniting your self-healing processes. Sometimes it takes only one or two key changes to turn things around.
Lauren has a unique way of combining the latest research and science with traditional healing techniques. For this reason Lauren always takes an investigative approach using functional diagnostic tests to investigative gut health, infections, food allergies, hormones, liver function, gene testing, nutrient status and many more.
“I believe it is important to know what we are dealing with first. What has started the cascade of events that have led you to this health issue? It’s never just one thing, but unravelling the maze is now possible with some clever testing. Once we know, we can use food, nutrients, herbs and traditional healing as medicine- that’s when the magic happens!”
Lauren offers her unique treatment of Fertility Massage at Angea together with her naturopathic expertise and functional testing.
