Theresa's hair clinic is a fusion of the art and science of Naturopathic Medicine. The art is in recognizing the messages from the body – connecting the dots between seemingly unrelated symptoms and understanding where this imbalance is coming from, and why. The science is in the use of natural medicines – dietary changes, stress-management techniques, nutritional supplements. The clinic uses spa treatments that increase blood circulation in your scalp using special hair growth tonics that feeds your hair, blocks DHT and increases blood circulation at the surface of the scalp, which rejuvenates hair follicles, making them grow stronger.
