Meet the Team

Our aim is simple: we want to help you with your health goals, taking you from where your health currently is to where you would like it to be and where it can be.

Our strategic style of assessing your health not only through your symptoms, but through in-house or external testing, allows us to measure exactly your progress and improvement, and allows you to evaluate the effectiveness of our therapies.

In your journey to a better health, you will meet us:

Tori Bowes:

I am a strong believer in holistic health and the healing power of nature. My approach is to encourage personal empowerment through changing diet and lifestyle to improve happiness, quality of life and personal satisfaction. In my 7 years in the health industry I have come to understand the wisdom and power of herbal medicine, its efficacy and synergy with the human body.

My clinical focus and passion lies with women’s health, hormones, allergies and digestive health. I love working with couples.
