Healing Days: Spring Hill Homeopathic and Natural Therapies Clinic

Your good health depends on maintaining a balance between your body's structure, its biochemistry and your emotional and mental outlook.

Our clinic's aim is to provide you with the best possible health care using a broad range of natural, complementary therapies, which may not solely rely on one branch of treatment.

Our clinic offers a warm, friendly and nurturing environment and the strong belief in our experience and service allows us to offer you a money back guarantee.

All of our skilled practitioners are tertiary qualified, members of their relevant associations and registered with the private health funds allowing for rebates to be claimed by you if available.

Our practitioners aim to find the cause of your illness or discomfort, and work with you to remove your complaint while improving your body's immune system and identify preventative measures to bring your body, mind and energies into balance.

Natural therapies are recommended to work in conjunction with traditional medical treatments being undertaken to help combat the side effects experienced with medications, expedite recovery after operations and injuries, and to support the immune system in all cases.

We achieve this using Naturopathy, a diverse and flexible treatment which may include herbs, flower essences, diet, nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes; Homeopathy, an extremely safe and effective system of medicine is suitable for the successful treatment of babies thru to adults for both chronic & acute disease states; Remedial & Sports Injury Massage which uses hands on mobilisation of muscles and other soft tissues of the body; and Kinesiology, which combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine.

Feel the zest for life again, increase your energy, return to harmony and happiness, and stop being sick and aching.

Healing Days

A great way of introducing yourself to the variety of alternative treatments is to join us on one of our Healing Days. At these sessions you experience 5 different forms of alternative therapies (including massage, iridology and homeopathy, to name a few that are available) in a total of 21/2 hours. These are not individual consultations but to broaden your options on alternative forms of treatments.

During the half hour spent with each individual, fully qualified practitioner you are given an insight into their particular methods used, what is expected of yourselves, and the therapies offered to assist you back to optimum health.

If you would like to introduce someone, whom you feel would benefit, to natural therapies this would be the ideal stepping stone over the stumbling block of "which therapy would suit me best?".

Why not give a gift voucher with a difference to a loved one, family or friend - the gift of health. A variety of gift vouchers are available, for the introductory Healing day or for an individual therapy, tailored to your specifications. Eftpos & Major Credit Card facilities are available as well as on site parking.

For further help including free information brochures, appointments, or gift vouchers please call Renee direct on 07 3839 5599. or click here.

Blue chip berries

Why these fruits are a good investment for your health? Whether you put them in muffins, pancakes, jam or just eat them fresh, berries are a treat for the taste buds. But these tasty fruits offer a lot more than just flavour, they’re also good for your health ina number of ways.


The leaf of the raspberry plant has traditionally been taken by pregnant women during the third trimester and breast-feeding. Raspberry leaf assists in childbirth and helps maintain the healthy production of breast milk. And now it also appears that the actual berries may offer their own health benefits. A recent US study has observed that black raspberries may play a role in helping to reduce the risk of colon cancer. In the study it was observed that rats fed on a high berry diet had 80 per cent fewer malignant tumours than rats whose diet did not include any berries.


Cranberries are perhaps the most well-known berries for their therapeutic benefits. They help to relieve cystitis pain and help prevent the bacteria that cause it from adhering to the bladder wall. As well as relieving the discomfort of this common urinary tract infection, cranberries also mask urinary odours, which makes them a sensible choice for incontinence sufferers. Cranberries are an acquired taste, which is why many people prefer the convenience of a high potency supplement.

Laughter is the best medicine!

Learing about a dinosaur alive in the rain forests of South America, a professor launches a scientific expedition. After several weeks he stumbles upon a little man wearing a loincloth, standing near a 300-foot-long dead dinosaur. The scientist can't believe his eyes. "Did you kill this dinosaur?" he asks. "Yep," replies the rain-forest native. "But it's so big and you're so small! How did you kill it?" "With my club," the primitive fellow answered. "How big is your club?" "Well, there are about 100 of us."
