Photobiomodulation, That’s a pretty big word isn’t it? I promise I’ll explain it to you but before I do I just need to say this:
I LOVE this technology! It’s freaking awesome!!
Ok, so now that I’ve gotten that out lets look at what it is.
Photo – refers to light
Bio – refers to living things/the body
Modulation – the act of altering or changing
So Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) is a therapy that uses specific frequencies of light to bring about change in the body.
I work with frequencies in the red and infrared range using a Thor Laser Max desktop machine
PBMT is used for a huge range of conditions from brain injury to bone repair and from hashimotos to soft tissue damage. Here is a partially complied list of research data. The list is still being completed but is already a fantastic reference tool.
A PBMT session is fast, painless, non-invasive and suitable for clients across the board from babies to the elderly and everyone in between.
So why does it work for so many different things? Because Light Powers Life.
Basically because it works by affecting the Mitochondria in cells. Mitochondria are the little energy factories that are present in virtually every cell in the body. Here is a video giving a simplistic explanation of how PBMT works. When I say simplistic, I mean as simplistic as I could find because lets face it there’s nothing simple about biophysics.
Depending on the conditions being treated a session usually takes about 20 minutes, although for more complex or multiple conditions a double, 40 minute session is recommended.
PBMT also has a cumulative effect, meaning that it works better with multiple sessions. For most short-term acute conditions like injury a minimum of 2 sessions per week for a period of 6 weeks is advised. For long-term chronic conditions, a minimum of 2 sessions per week until the condition is resolved is advised.
- $35 per 20 minute session
- $65 per 40 minute session

Is PBMT for me?
If you have any of the following then PBMT can be helpful:
- Skin conditions or slow healing wounds
- Soft (muscle, tendon, ligament, cartilage) or hard (bone) tissue conditions,
- Inflammation (general or specific),
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Autoimmune conditions such as MS or Hashimotos
- Poor circulation
- Depression, anxiety, brain trauma
- Or, for the sportsters among us, want to:
- Improve performance and/or;
- Improve recovery time

Ancestral Health Consultations
Radiate your inner AWESOME
Let’s face it, the world we live in today is very different to the world we evolved/were designed to live in. Even though humans are incredibly good at adapting to new conditions, the changes that have taken place in our world over the last century alone are huge and it’s my belief that humans are struggling to keep up. Physical and mental illnesses seem to be everywhere and have almost become the new normal.
These consults are about looking at you, your personal ancestry, human ancestry and personal and environmental factors in your world that may be limiting you and preventing you from being the amazing you that you really are. The aim is to give you insights, information and tools to upgrade your life.
Some of the topics covered are:
- Circadian Biology and Light
- Ancestral Nutrition
- Body Awareness
- Mindfulness and beliefs
I’m a firm believer that our bodies and minds are amazing and that many illnesses are signs and symptoms that something is not right with our own personal world. I’m all for helping you uncover what the physical, mental and/or emotional stressors might be.
These sessions are about:
- Helping you to identify and understand what the stressors are in YOUR life;
- Giving you information and tools about what you can do to reduce those stressors and;
- Improve your ability to handle them.
I’m a big fan of:
- Making sessions relevant to you;
- Only giving you bite sized pieces (unless you prefer big chunks) so you don’t walk away feeling overwhelmed;
- Always giving you practical tips that you can implement in your life.
It’s time to take the power back and start radiating your inner awesomness.
Sessions can be held either in person, via Zoom call or at your home (within a radius)
- Initial and 1 hour consults – $95
- ½ hour consults – $55
Chances are you are not broken, your body and mind are not inherently faulty. You ARE in fact pretty awesome and I’d love to help you to:
Colonic hydrotherapy or as I like to call it, Human Plumbing, uses filtered water to clean out your colon/large intestine.
In the closed system method that we use a speculum in inserted (very gently!) into your bottom. Two tubes are attached to the speculum, one for water going in and one for waste coming out. Waste from the colonic can then flow through the tube directly into the sewerage system.
We use a number of different techniques through the colonic to help you have the best releases possible.
We only use disposable attachments so you can feel safe that everything is squeaky clean.
Finally we recognize and take seriously how “big” this process can be for people and for this reason we consider ourselves to be colonic midwives. People experience all sorts of things during a colonic and we aim to meet you wherever you’re at.
