Amy was born in Kenya, where she spent the first half of her life. Her adult life has been spent in her adopted country, Australia. She has a special affinity for her blended life, and it has informed her passion for health and her approach to natural therapies.
Amy has been practicing as a natural therapist for over ten years. She can’t image doing anything else!
Amy’s approach to natural therapy and treatment is very personal, and there’s a very good reason for that! It’s common knowledge that each one of us is unique: from our looks to our background, our genetics, and our environment. So, it’s also logical that we are unique in our combination of likes and dislikes, the way our bodies react to various foods, what makes us ill, and the treatment that will best suit us.
Amy has made an in-depth study of the power and beauty of Traditional Tibetan Medicine. She is particularly excited about the way it combines the science of healing with a profound emphasis on a total balance of life.
“It complements my philosophy of life,” she says, “in that it treats every person as unique, and uniquely valuable.”
Health and wellness are the right of every person. When your body and mind are in balance, you are more likely to be in a state of health. Tibetan Medicine has four divisions, or “tantras”: three systems governing the body, and one the mind. When these systems, or any aspect of a system, are unbalanced, a person either becomes ill, or their health is compromised in some way.
- Wind system: circulation—of blood, nerve impulses or thoughts as they move through the body
- Heat system: digestion, metabolism and the liver
- Cold system: the structure and stability of the body
- Fourth system: the mind
Amy uses this complete system to treat “the whole person”, so every part of your life can contribute to good health.
