Amy Donovan T/A Calyx Health is a degree qualified and registered Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Massage Therapist.
Calyx Health will work with you implementing naturopathic care to help create and achieve your health goals through a solid foundation of lifestyle and nutrition support, plus through the use of herbal medicine and nutritional supplements when required.
Calyx Health also acknowledges and respects the body’s innate intelligence and ability to heal.
All suggestions are solidly based on recent and relevant scientific research as well as traditional cultural knowledge drawn from Rongoa Maori, Traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, and western herbal medicine.
Treatment and care is specific to each individual as no two of us are the same.
Naturopathy is excellent at supporting those who may be experiencing digestive issues, fatigue, stress, anxiety, poor sleep, poor immunity, allergies, skin conditions, unwanted weight gain, fertility issues, and many more health conditions. Therapeutic massage can also assist with many of the above mentioned conditions.
As with any aspect of health there can be no guarantees and individual results will vary.
In order to give you the best chance at achieving your health goals Calyx Health requires full commitment and communication from each individual while you work together on your health journey.
Open communication also helps to ensure safety and efficacy of treatment.
If at any stage you feel the need to slow down or stop treatment from Calyx Health communication must be made directly via email to Amy@calyxhealth.nz at the soonest possible opportunity to establish and attain the most productive outcome for your health moving forward.
Calyx Health provides holistic healthcare but does not replace that of your general practitioner (GP).
Calyx Health advises full disclosure of your healthcare treatment with Calyx Health to your GP and any other medical professionals from whom you are obtaining healthcare.
If you are under ACC care for an existing injury, therapeutic massage does not replace the care of your physiotherapist, chiropractor, osteopath, or any other body work modality care you are under - rather it works to complement these body work modalities. If you have an historic injury therapeutic massage can assist by relieving muscle tension and associated pain but this usually involves regular sessions and individual results will vary.
What Naturopathy does do:
Looks at all the systems of the body to establish where there may be underlying dis-ease.
Being a holistic medical practice, naturopathy looks to the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the individual to see if there may be disharmony which could attribute the individual’s health.
Works to create a strong foundation of health promoting lifestyle and nutritional choices on which sustainable health can be attained and maintained.
What Naturopathy does not do:
Focus on a diagnosis.
Seek to treat the symptoms – naturopathy seeks out the possible cause of dis-ease or disharmony of the body and mind and works to create and support sustainable health.
Replace the care from your medical GP.
