About our Practitioner
Our practitioner, Scott Hankinson, has been both a Naturopath and a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner for over 20 years, so you get the benefit of two different therapeutic perspectives rolled into one as well as the benefit of his many years of clinical experience. Both Naturopathy and Acupuncture are covered in the info below, so please scroll to the section you want.
When you first come to our clinic you can choose to have either a Comprehensive or a Standard Naturopathic consultation. Both consultations have in-depth time with our practitioner, where he assesses your health history, discusses your situation and uses Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostic techniques. However, we always recommend the Comprehensive consultation as this includes non-invasive clinical testing that gives Scott a much deeper insight into your particular health situation. This longer appointment assists our naturopath in assessing whether factors such as bacteria, chemical disturbances, heavy metals, fungi, hormonal imbalances and parasites may be impacting your health.

Our Standard Naturopathic Consultation is similar terms of discussing your health situation and needs, and using Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis techniques, however it does not include the scan. Click here to see current pricing and book a Standard initial consultation.
Please note that Scott will also prescribe natural medicines at your first visit, which normally cost between $100 and $200 depending on your health situation. If you are on a budget be sure to let him know as he will then prescribe only the core, most absolutely essential products.
For immediate pain relief, we recommend an Initial Acupuncture Treatment and Assessment. This a one-off introductory appointment so that our practitioner has time to accurately understand your condition before he begins your acupuncture treatment. Since he is also a naturopath, Scott will give you some basic naturopathic advice during your assessment and may recommend some nutritional or herbal medicines to speed up your body’s healing process. Click here to see current pricing and book online for an Initial Acupuncture Treatment with Assessment. The price for subsequent appointments can be found here.
If acupuncture needles are not your cup of tea, we can use laser acupuncture instead. However, many people who are afraid of acupuncture needles find their worries are unfounded once they have a treatment. Acupuncture needles are extremely fine – thinner than human hair – and many people don’t even feel them go in. Occasionally you may feel a slight twinge which may be momentarily a little painful, but it is very different to ‘being stuck’ with a hypodermic needle or pin. If you book online, please indicate in the Comments box if you would prefer laser acupuncture.
