How Claire Helps You With Your Health
Claire cares deeply about the medicine that she practices because it has changed and enhanced her life for the better, and she cares deeply about each patient that she sees.
Claire’s strength is her ability to listen to and understand patients that have never completely felt listened to or understood before by other healthcare practitioners, to be open and honest and non-judgmental with them so that they feel they are safe to truly express who they are and what is on their mind. Claire aims to help her patients understand their health conditions and their bodies and minds better, and to support, educate and empower them as they work towards achieving their wellbeing and health goals.
For those clients who don’t have a specific issue but want to learn to manage their health in a natural way, Claire assists them to manage their health and lifestyles in a preventative way, to help them stay at their best and healthiest all year round. She is committed to working closely with her clients in a down to earth and realistic way to produce outcomes that change their health and lives for the better.
“In the past, people practiced the Tao, The way of life. They understood the principles of balance…They maintained wellbeing of body and mind; thus it is not surprising that they lived over one hundred years”– The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine
Claire found Chinese medicine after a serious illness (meningitis) following which, she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue. She had tried so many other things and nothing had really helped. Chinese medicine not only helped Claire to feel so much better physically but it’s wisdom also helped her to grow and make significant life changes so she could avoid getting so sick again. These changes led Claire away from a life that was exhausting and unauthentic and towards a life that felt freer and truer to who she was.
Because of this, Claire has a special interest in helping clients to recover from chronic debilitating illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue, M.E. and Fibromyalgia, and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. She also has a strong passion for supporting women’s health and has a strong focus on menstrual cycle disorders, infertility, pregnancy, postpartum care and menopause.
