Frequently asked questions

  • What is Naturopathy?

    Naturopathy is a system of healthcare based on traditional philosophies and principles. Student practitioners are highly trained over 4 years to take a holistic and individualised approach to healthcare. Your practitioner will take detailed notes about your health problem and lifestyle, and complete a physical exam to assess your physical and mental health. Treatments are tailored to your needs and may incorporate nutritional coaching, herbal medicine, supplementation, lifestyle and exercise advice.

    Your practitioner may also use traditional skills to evaluate your constitutional health via iridology and prescribe flower essence remedies or homoeopathy as part of a holistic health recommendation.

    For more information, see our blog on “What is Naturopathy” /blog/health/naturopathy-explained

  • What is Western Herbal Medicine?

    Western Herbal Medicine practitioners take a holistic approach to health with treatments based on the use of plants as medicine. Our student practitioners blend traditional and health science knowledge to individualise your herbal prescription that may be dispensed as liquid, tablet, capsule, tea or food as medicine. Practitioners provide basic diet and lifestyle advice to optimise health outcomes. Herbal medicines are used to treat a variety of complaints ranging across digestive, skin, stress, sleep, reproductive, musculoskeletal and immune conditions to name a few.

  • What is Nutrition?

    Nutritional medicine is focused toward the prevention and management of a wide range of health conditions. Nutritional Medicine practitioners use a range of dietary and lifestyle modifications and nutritional supplementation therapy and body composition analysis.

    Nutritional Medicine Practitioners draw upon the traditional and evidence-based understandings of utilising food as medicine, along with therapeutic nutritionals; to enable those seeking treatment to manage complex health conditions such as stress, fatigue, digestive disorders, as well as cardiovascular, hormonal and immune concerns.

    Through comprehensive case taking and holistic analysis, our student practitioners are able to tailor dietary & nutritional prescriptions to best suit your individual health goals, incorporating nutritional recommendations and supplementation.

  • Directions and how easy it is to get to the clinic i.e via public transport/parking?

    Pyrmont, Sydney - catch the light rail to the Convention Centre stop, or 10 min walk from Town Hall. The campus is a 20 minute walk or 15 min bus trip from Central Station. Ticketed parking close by.

  • What is Body Composition Analysis?
    Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) measures body composition based on the rate at which an electrical current travels through the body.

    The Practice Wellbeing Centre has Therapeutic Goods Association-approved body composition analysis equipment. This easy-to-use equipment accurately measures body mass index, muscle mass, body fat, hydration levels and other important biomarkers. This testing is most commonly used for clients with a focus on weight loss or gain, obtaining peak physical performance, managing chronic disease risk and managing health proactively.

    Body composition analysis takes just 15 minutes and is best used in conjunction with a full complementary medicine consultation where the practitioner can explain results and help you to achieve your health goals.
  • What is Homeopathy?

    Homeopathy is a traditional naturopathic modality that uses highly diluted preparations of substances to stimulate the body’s healing response to disease.

    Treating each client as an individual, the homeopath will ask in detail about the presenting complaint taking into account lifestyle, eating habits, mental health and medical history. The practitioner takes particular notice of the unique symptom picture of the client as this helps in determining the appropriate homeopathic prescription. Your prescription will be prescribed in low doses in either pillules or drop dose form. Homeopathy is used to treat acute and chronic conditions and is prescribed in conjunction with a full naturopathic consultation.

  • What is Counselling?

    You will be treated by a Master of Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy JNI students, who are supervised by qualified and highly experienced practitioners in each field. This presents a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain practical experience and develop confidence in their chosen career area, while also providing treatments to our clients at a very affordable price and helping them with their challenges.

    By using a coordinated matching process, you will be paired with the counselling and psychotherapy student that best suits your individual needs.
