Your healing is Within our Process
At HSNH we believe that what happens in our lives is visible in our health.
In your time with us, we identify and treat the responses to your life events, as well as the conditions they create.
As a practitioner who has had her own experiences of trauma, I dedicate myself to the recovery of others. Through twenty years of practice I have developed and honed my skills. I have refined these skills into this process that we now offer to you. Together we will enable your unique overcoming.

Assessment For The Impact of Trauma and Life Events
The health impact of life events has been measurable for over thirty years. The wear and tear on the body that accumulates as a person is exposed to severe or chronic stress can be seen in a specific panel of blood tests.
Many experiences can create negative health impacts – adverse childhood experiences, abuse, divorce, disadvantage, poverty, loss of a parent, and societal impacts such as inequality, patriarchy, racism and capitalism.
Although we cannot currently change the system and cannot change the things that have happened, we can identify and measure the harm of them, then design a treatment to recover your health and well being.

What we do
Naturopathy is a system of natural medicine. We treat the person as a whole. Consideration health history, context and experience. We treat causes to enable the body to heal itself, supporting the mind and emotions during the healing process.
Herbal medicine is the use of plants, herbs or flowers to nurture and have a therapeutic effect. By using herbs in this way we can reset our body and nervous system, treating the stressful experiences of our lives.
A unique system of acupuncture developed by our founder Aurora Sheehy. Somatic acupuncture uses points known to treat trauma and emotional responses, as well as points that engage polyvagal reset to resolve held stressful events.
