How Can We Help You?

Herbal supplements are the most prominent, though in addition you may look at trying treatments such as acupuncture, massage, or reflexology to help with increasing relaxation and reducing tension.

''Really helpful initial consultation with Fabiana gave me lots of insights into why I have been feeling so sluggish and out of sorts - she was very kind and curious, and gave me some great pointers about making some gentle changes to manage effects of long term stress combined with menopause. I’ll definitely follow up with a longer term plan.'' - Caroline.
