"The whole ethos behind The Rebalance Clinic is to help women in all stages of menopause. I created a holistic approach to help women build an effective toolkit to thrive in menopause) range of treatments that can help women feel healthy and balanced."

Claire Hurst

Like so many women, I hit peri-menopause head-on and had no idea how much it was going to dominate my life for the next few years. 

I just didn't know enough. It was pre-Davina and the now surge of menopause information, I was on my own. I had HRT but still felt like a foreigner in the own body and I couldn’t find the support I needed so I started to explore other holistic healthcare approaches I retrained and have spent all my time ever since researching and finding solutions for women so that everyone can build a toolkit to meet their needs.

Just when I felt great, had built my own toolkit I was then diagnosed with diagnosed with breast cancer and so had to rethink my whole menopause toolkit as HRT was no longer an option for me. This is when I also started to train and research oncology acupuncture and build a whole new arm to my business to support other women going through the menopause with breast cancer diagnosis.

After a lot of research, I gave up my corporate career and retrained in acupuncture, mycology and phlebotomy. I am passionate about the benefits that fasting can also bring women too.

"I see the power of holistic health for women every day
in clinic. Its not about huge changes but simple effective changes and building the right support and toolkit that my patients can incorporate into their lives"
