Since the early 1990s, Dianna has been working with people to improve their overall health and wellness. This is accomplished by working with each individual to develop a strategy to address problems, overcome them, and optimize wellness.
Dianna holds a Doctorate in Naturopathy along with several addition degrees pertaining to the health and wellbeing field. In addition, numerous certifications have been obtained through continuing education pursuits.
All interventions are evidence-based. In this way, time and money is not wasted on fly-by-night ideas. The therapies have research behind them coupled with years (sometimes thousands of years) of successes in humans, not just animal studies or petri-dishes.
Some of the therapies will be familiar to new clients, while others may be unknown. Since one-size does not fit all, careful evaluation is performed to match the best therapy to the client's need. The whole body is involved in health and in illness. Helping you to achieve your highest level of wellness is our goal.
