Here at The Body Balance Company, we take a multi-dimensional approach to understanding and treating your health concerns, whether they are minor or more serious.
Our team is made up of passionate and highly experienced health practitioners that specialise in integrative health across a broad range of fields, including:
We provide a positive, uplifting environment where we look after people and show them how to look after themselves which underpins our treatment philosophy at The Body Balance Company. We use our expertise to educate our clients and provide them with treatments, support services and counselling to ensure they can fully meet these challenges without causing collateral damage to themselves, are resilient to illness, and are able to fully enjoy these special times in their lives.
We work at helping our clients to cultivate balanced wellness behaviours and lifestyles so that they have the confidence and knowledge to take responsibility for their own health long after a course of treatment has been completed.
Both internal harmony and balance, and healthy behaviour are essential for long-term wellness. The Body Balance Company’s vision is to help people build and maintain balance in their lives and through this, uplift their wellness.
All clients are embraced within The Body Balance Company under our guiding philosophy of education, correction and preventative holistic care.
Our clients seek our help for treatment, healing and support because they are feeling, anxious, fatigued, run down, frustrated, discouraged and stressed. They may suspect that they have allergies, hormone imbalances or gut problems, or perhaps ‘they just don’t feel right.’ They are fed up with pain and discomfort, self-confidence and relationship issues as well as fertility concerns. They are at a loss in regards to why they feel this way, or what they need to do about it. Many of our clients conditions have been previously diagnosed as untreatable or incurable, leaving them with a sense of hopelessness and isolation.
Some of our clients are often busy and exceptional people who are constantly challenged by demanding and punishing schedules and expectations. We endeavour to assist people to become and remain the best they can be, for as long as they wish, even when they face demanding challenges that stretch them to their limit.
And some clients consider themselves fit and well, but searching for a way to maintain and preserve their wellbeing. We work with clients on important attitudinal and psychological aspects of illness and wellness to encourage them to adopt wellness promoting lifestyle changes, minimizing net collateral damage to self.
Integrative Health Practitioner
Rather than focus on treating a specific disease and using medication (as conventional doctors are trained to do) Scott utilizes cutting edge techniques to assess & diagnose the underlying (root) causes of disease: toxicity, inflammation and immune and digestive imbalances. His focus is on supporting the body’s normal powers of regeneration, regulation and healing. He offers unique and specialised treatments for the eradication of parasites, gut disease, chronic illness, woman’s and men’s health.
With more than 20 years’ professional experience, Scott’s own inner journey and training has taken him from the Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne, to Europe, where Scott forged a pathway of learning and practice in natural health. Spending much time in East Berlin, Scott owned and operated a leading natural health clinic, offering holistic services such as naturopathic medicine, floatation therapy, detox & diet programs as well as innovative gut disease treatments.
Always learning, Scott furthered his education whilst overseas, completing Diplomas in Remedial Massage, Human Hygiene/Diet & Nutrition and Certifications in Kinesiology and Reflexology.
The flagship East Berlin clinic caught much media attention being the first of its kind and quickly established a reputation for quality and convincing results. The clinic developed a loyal clientele including many well-known artists in the international film industry.
In demand, both in his practice as well as touring the world over, Scott has enjoyed a fulfilling professional career as a Integrative Health Practitioner / consultant, often working on film productions or supporting internationally renowned actors and directors privately whilst on the road.
Scott’s desire to bring his extensive skills and experience home to Australia, was realised in 2013 when he opened The Body Balance Company first in Melbourne and has recently relocated his practice to beautiful Southern Queensland. Here Scott brings his extensive experience in German naturopathic medicine as well as his unique qualities in the understanding of body and mind balancing to his patients, delivering profound results.
