About

NATURE THERAPIES CLINIC

Nature Therapies is where you will find an extensive collection of proven and effective natural therapies, exceptional skills, and well over 30 years of knowledge and experience that can help you regain your health and live life to the full.

Nature Therapies offers specialties in Musculoskeletal and Sports Injuries, True Holistic Health management for body, mind, spirit, and Athletic Performance Enhancement.

My mission is to help you improve your wellbeing using the best natural care available, with a high degree of integrity and respect for both your healing process and you the individual.

I believe that wholistic health care, is not truly wholistic, unless healing is made available to the body, mind, and spirit, and have on offer vast clinical experience in modalities ranging from acupuncture, nutrition and structural balancing, to life coaching, energy healing and ‘Find Yourself’ programs conducted out in Nature.

 

Practised Modalities


The healing techniques of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, like most traditional therapeutic approaches, are founded on the principle that internal harmony is essential for good health. In order to experience this harmony, balance has to be obtained in five key areas: body, mind, spirit, social and our environment. The holistic medicine practised at Nature Therapies can help you find balance in all these areas.

 

OUR SPECIALTIES

Musculoskeletal Disorders and Sporting Injuries

Nature Therapies offers exceptionally effective treatment using multi-modalities for musculoskeletal and sporting injuries. Developed over a lifetime of personal sports involvement and 25 years of full-time practice, many difficult, chronic and long-term problems have found successful outcomes from the combination of treatments available.

The effectiveness of this service comes from the ability to take a truly wholistic view of your injury or pain. This means that apart from having an in-depth look at the physical and bio-mechanical components of your discomfort, I then look for contributing factors that can come from poor nutrition, postural habits, training programme, work demands, mental outlook, inflammatory profile, pH and state of detoxification.

The information gleaned from this investigation helps to uncover hidden blocks to healing that may be stalling the healing of a persistent injury or causing it to recur. I have come to honour the principle that "The body will heal itself, if we can remove any obstacles and let it do its job." I find that it is often these contributing factors that block healing and keep the body from returning to its pain free normal state.

 

True Holistic Health Management

True holistic health care may is difficult to achieve if only narrow aspects of health or disease are examined. Modern medicine’s scientific approach often compartmentalises disease states, and sometimes patients, at the expense of a broader view which can often contain vital clues to the puzzle of regaining full health.

Traditional Natural medicine offers time-honoured natural therapies that are effective at providing not only many health solutions, but also a template for living and maintaining a healthy life.

True Holistic Health however, becomes possible when each of the five major components of health are considered in relation to your presenting symptoms. Human health reaches full potential when there is harmony in the body, mind, spirit, social, and environmental areas. Nature Therapies practitioner Terry Hitzke has over 25 years of accumulated knowledge and experience in a diverse array of modalities that can address each of these aspects if required.

Athlete Performance Enhancement

This specialty is complemented by 25 years experience in musculoskeletal and sports injuries management, but goes much further to provide athletes young and old the opportunity to perform at their best.Performance Enhancement is not just about things that help us go faster, longer and stronger, but starts with identifying factors that might limit peak performance. These factors include poor biomechanics, muscle and joint imbalances, inflexibility, inefficient style, pH, poor nutrition and lifestyle habits. Many athletes have made significant improvements in their performances simply by understanding and addressing the problem.
