Mikaela Duffy ~ Naturopath
Thanks for visiting! I’m a degree trained Naturopath, Nutritionist and Bodyworker and have been in clinical practice for over 15 years. My work assists people throughout the Brisbane area and online, and my passion is helping girls and women through the mediums of herbs, remedies, foods, physical body treatments & energetic bodywork.
I specialise in period & hormone health, pregnancy, and post-natal care, and provide home visits for new mums to support their recovery & wellbeing during this special time.
I love supporting mind and body health with this variety of approaches – Herbal Body Treatments, Mayan abdominal massage, BodyTalk, Reiki/intuitive healing and Biofeedback Technology. I look forward to working together with you on your journey!
My approach to your health
I am aware that my industry has gained a reputation for heavy selling and bags full of products, however, when it comes to supplementation guidance, I have a strong philosophy of ‘less is more’.
Being a Naturopath means I create treatments that focus on the key aspects of a person’s health- taking into consideration food, lifestyle, personal interests and needs. If appropriate, I am able to utilise Mayan abdominal massage, BodyTalk, BioFeedback Technology and Reiki and even Medical Testing within sessions.
By using the various tools of my practice, my focus is on finding the root cause to give advice that is individual, practical, and achievable.
What is bodywork?
Bodywork is the use of traditional healing methods & systems to support overall balance of the body. The use of herbs topically through compressing & steaming, using specific massage to realign the pelvic & digestive organs, or muscle checking & tapping to address stuck emotions & physical symptoms are all areas I have studied throughout the course of 20 years in the industry.
As a Practitioner, I rely on the guidance of the body’s natural wisdom to find the right methods to utilise in order to support your best health. I utilise gentle techniques, and sessions are focused on stimulating your body’s natural healing response in a way that feels good for your current needs.
