How is the Timbs Natural Therapy Clinic different?

  1. Fee - clients pay what you think is a fair price

  2. Open all hours - I work from home so I'm available after hours

  3. My main practice is Spinal Manipulation but I also offer a potpourri of other therapies

  4. My intention is to always 'fix' a persons ailment in ONE appointment only

I started my Natural Therapy experience at the age of 15 when I visited a western trained medical doctor for the treatment of acne. I had no previous experience with medical doctors and as a treatment for acne it was recommended I dig up Yellow Dock Root, boil it in water and have 2 Tbs of the liquid before each meal. It tasted foul but it worked. I learned years later that the medical doctor I visited was also a trained herbalist.

Welcome to the unique combination of services I offer relating to Mind/Body medicine and personal Well-Being.

onation only or Koha (what you think is a fair amount) is the method of payment for all services.
