Hi, I’m Nikki Hawkes. I am a qualified medical herbalist and registered acupuncturist, with further training in nutritional medicine, advanced diagnostics and personalised treatment. See my credentials here.
I practice a holistic and restorative form of medicine that can help to address many of the problems of chronic illness. I offer personalised treatment protocols designed for you and your needs. In particular, I am often consulted for natural solutions for chronic disease or chronic pain.
My patients tell me they don’t want to take painkillers or other medications every day. They know that their medications don’t cure their pain or disease, they only mask their symptoms. They are looking for natural solutions to free them from the side effects caused by their medication.
My patients realise that their chronic illness is likely related to underlying factors. Their illness will never improve until the underlying factors are identified and resolved. I work with them to identify these underlying issues and manage or resolve their chronic disease.
If you have long-standing health problems and you want to try to avoid or reduce the need for certain medications for the rest of your life, please contact me to discuss how I can help.
I use a comprehensive health assessment and examination, plus where necessary lab testing (blood, saliva, breath, stool or urine) to identify the root cause of illness. I use a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicines, supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes, and stress management techniques to address these underlying issues rather than simply trying to suppress symptoms.
Together we form a treatment plan to bring you back to health. The treatment plan is designed to restore proper function, address symptoms and prevent or reverse disease. My methods are informed by the latest evidence based research.
If you are interested in working with me to recover your health, and would like more information, please send me a message using the contact form.
