Here at The Clinic we know that to really achieve that glow, mental wellbeing and a healthy body are just as important as skincare. Our aim is to help you to be SkinFit, BodyFit AND MindFit. In addition to aesthetics and beauty treatments, we also provide nutrition assessment and advice, treatment for sexual dysfunction and incontinence, and life-coaching to help you tackle issues that could be holding you back.
Our nutrition expert, Tess Ström, offers a bespoke 12-week health coaching programme. Tess is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist with a functional medicine outlook. Functional medicine focuses on addressing the root cause of disease or ill health, looking at the core systems that allow the body to function properly. Tess has a particular interest in hormonal imbalances and the role these play in our overall health. She is also a Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner. The aim of her 12-week programme is to:
- work with you to identify your individual health concerns
- make recommendations to address them
- support you while you make lifestyle changes
- give you the advice you need to succeed
Perhaps you want to lose weight, improve your gut health, deal with food intolerances, improve your exercise performance or smooth your path through hormonal changes? Tess will support you on your journey.
How does the course work?
The 12-week course includes an initial 90 minute consultation with Tess, and eight 30-minute follow-up sessions, either here at The Clinic or via Skype, within the 12-week period. Tess will use the consultations and an in-depth health questionnaire to build a detailed picture of your health and your concerns. She will then work out an achievable, personalised plan taking into account your goals.
Tess will make sure that the speed at which you work is adjusted to suit your own unique circumstances, your individual health concerns and the approach that works best for you.
Diet and lifestyle changes can be difficult or feel overwhelming if you face them on your own. The 12-week health coaching programme means that Tess is on hand to support you during this crucial time, as your body responds to the changes and begins the process of healing. In addition to the consultations, email support is also available where required, and the plan will be constantly updated and refined during the process.
Nutritional therapy and functional medicine working together
Tess is an expert in both nutritional therapy and functional medicine. When nutritional therapy is teamed with functional medicine it is even more likely to have dramatic and lasting positive effects on our bodies and health. Digestive health, immune function, hormones, nutrient status and genetics all play a role here. To investigate the underlying cause of ill health this may also include looking at biochemical imbalances, chronic infections, allergies and sensitivities, heavy metal of other environmental toxin build-up, as well as the pathways of cellular energy. This information will aid Tess as she works to optimise your health.
Using this information and her in-depth knowledge, Tess may also recommend specific supplements at therapeutic doses. She may also recommend functional medicine lab tests, such as blood, saliva, urine or stool tests, most of which can be completed at home. These are optional and will incur an additional cost, which Tess will discuss in full during your consultation. These tests can prove very useful when identifying the root causes of specific health concerns.
