THE CLINIC - PRACTITIONERS
Kirsten Shanks, founder of Orchard Street, is a qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist committed to empowering clients and improving the quality of their lives in a supportive environment.
A comprehensive knowledge base interweaves evidence based naturopathic medicine with current scientific research to offer clients the very best opportunity to flourish. Specialising in digestive health conditions, the systemic effect of these on mental, emotional and physical wellbeing is often revealed. Kirsten draws upon various testing methods to reveal ecological or pathological imbalances which may be causing these- including candida and parasites. Working alongside clients to enhance detoxification pathways and restore digestive balance, Kirsten is passionate about awakening the vitality and true health that lies under a burdened body and mind.
The use of food as medicine is paramount to Kirsten’s clinical practice, guiding clients to nourish and heal with whole foods suited to their individual health needs.
Also fundamental to most treatment protocols is the application of herbal medicines to support the body’s capacity to heal and restore balance.
With a yogic background and a warm, empathic nature Kirsten creates a nurturing space for you to heal, flourish and grow.
