Appointment Structure & Fees
How it works
We aim to meet all of our client’s health and wellness needs with the highest level of care. Your health journey is an ongoing commitment and we are 100% on board with you! We have a proven system that involves regular appointments, 2-4 weeks apart, to get you started. For our paediatric patients, this process is sometimes fast-tracked and condensed. We also offer Skype or phone appointments, except for the in-house testing appointment. We will assess your health and design a treatment program that ensures you reach your goals. Together we will put together a structured and detailed action plan outlining your short term and long term goals
PATIENTS - APPOINTMENT OVERVIEW & FEES
Most new patients follow the below appointment structure. Both before and after your appointments, we spend time researching your health, reviewing your goals and finding the best options for you. This also involves communicating with your other health care providers, presenting your case to our Studio You practitioner board or writing reports. We do this because we practice the highest level of best practice procedures possible and take your health seriously. Partnering with us means we leave no stone unturned as we leverage cutting edge science and implement them into highly effective customised treatment plans.

Your first visit involves a full case history, referrals to appropriate practitioners & recommendations for any pathology. You will receive a clear, written treatment plan that addresses your immediate concerns. Emma Sutherland, Senior Naturopath (over 20 years experience) : $250
