Avril’s Journey to Natural Healing :

flower-870573_1280"I grew up living on a farm in the countryside where a woodland was my playground.  Back then, I remember being fascinated by nature. In nature things just happen without any apparent effort. As I grew up I always had the desire to maintain that natural flow in my daily life. In school I observed how pupils struggled when their family life or health was out of balance.  Now having completed years of training I love helping all my patients return to being wholly healthy. Many people are on the wrong track, far removed from the flow of nature- their true selves are hidden under layers of illness, emotional baggage, toxicity etc.- they have forgotten who they really are deep down.

I’ve traveled the path towards whole health myself; I spent much of my childhood being ill with tonsillitis as a result of an undiscovered dairy intolerance. As a result of these regular illnesses and other life stresses I lost my vitality.  Having recovered my vitality I now combine that energy with all my life experience in my work.  I’ve learned a system of health which can not only bring people back to a state of wellness but continue on to help them feel vital."
