Laura's clinical practice is based on the understanding that our energy systems are interconnected with our physical systems, and the mind interplays with both the energetic and the physical systems.


In Laura's consultations she works to align the energetic systems of the body and connect people with their true essence to bring about change in their health and wellbeing. She further supports this integration with herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, and lifestyle change.

ITA is used to discern the contributors of the imbalance within the physical and energetic systems. Naturopathy is used to understand the physical contributors to that imbalance and support the physical systems to integrate the energetic alignment imprinted with the ITA sequence. Thus within treatment the self-healing is supported from both the energetic and physical systems. 

ITA home-care exercises bring targeted mind work into the treatment plan to support the integration of balance within the systems with this third aspect.

Treatments are appropriate for anyone wanting to achieve a higher level of wellness. However the style of consultation has proven to be particularly useful in the support of:

  • Stress

  • Sleep disturbances and insomnia

  • Imbalanced mental health (such as anxiety or depression)

  • Exhaustion, adrenal fatigue and burnout

During your session there will be a period of discussion around your reasons for seeking treatment. During this time the naturopathic assessment will take place. This discussion will be followed with an ITA alignment. The ITA alignment generally takes place on a massage table unless a seated position is required. 

Clients report feeling a deep sense of relaxation during and in the days following the treatment. A naturopathic prescription is then often prescribed and specific ITA homecare exercises will be provided based on the needs of the client.
