From conception to your baby's first months
What is naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a way of living one’s health by optimizing the strengths of our own body. Through the use of various natural products, observations of the environment and changes in lifestyle, the naturopath helps the person to regain balance in the various systems of his or her body.
This service is offered in the form of private meetings that can be done alone or as a couple. Currently we offer this service via video conference as no physical manipulation is required. The first meeting lasts 90 minutes, to take the time to evaluate your health, and subsequent meetings last 60 minutes.
It is a therapy that can be taken as early as the pre-conception period and follow you all your life! It is a good idea to consult a naturopath during the perinatal period to help you live the changes in your body more gently.
