“My joy in my work comes from helping people take responsibility for their own health and helping them through the therapies I offer.”
Annette is a Naturopath, and offers a range of therapies including holistic massage, bowen technique (including neurostructural integration technique – NST), and reiki.
Annette is Co-Owner of York Natural Health and set up the practice in 2007.
Annette first started her career studying Spiritual Healing with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers and went on to become a Reiki Master Practitioner.
Annette studied massage, anatomy and physiology with the Sylvia Brearley School of Massage in Harrogate where she was awarded an ITEC diploma in Holistic Massage and did further training in pregnancy massage.
Whilst training a student introduced her to Bowen Technique which led to study with the European College of Bowen Studies (now the College of Bowen Studies). Whilst training Annette suffered a migraine and her tutor was able to effectively resolve the pain with Bowen. This convinced her of its efficacy.
“I was brought up with a natural lifestyle using naturopathic methods for healing and health though still had migraines which were treated with fasting and hydrotherapy. Whilst studying to become a Naturopath with the ISRN (the oldest registering body in the UK) I went on a placement in Australia and learned about raw food diets which helped hugely with my healing and recovery.
With changes made to my lifestyle and eating habits, I am free of migraines and able to take full advantage of my health.
My joy in my work comes from helping people take responsibility for their own health and helping them through the therapies I offer.
I enjoy working with people and children of all ages, with chronic and acute conditions, those with frozen shoulders, back pain and many other conditions. I do this through a nutrition and lifestyle approach that goes back to my upbringing and training. I feel I can best support my clients in this way as I practice what I preach. I use a combination of physical therapies such as massage, bowen technique, reiki and lifestyle changes to compliment your body’s natural healing process. I feel that when the body is relaxed it is in a better position to help with its own healing.
I enjoy hill walking, trail cycling, skiing, gardening and DIY.”
