About Us

The Meaning of “Tolle Totum”

Pronounced as Toll (with a silent e) Tote-um, it is a Latin phrase representing one of the five principles of Naturopathy, meaning to treat the whole person. This resonated deeply with Naturopath and business owner Denise Berry, when she first started Tolle Totum Therapies in 2018.

When you work with any of our practitioners at Tolle Totum Therapies, we will help you to understand the key drivers that have contributed to your current state of health, including (but not limited to) diet, lifestyle and your connection to nature or the divine. That is, we will work with your body, mind and spirit.

Our Core Values & Beliefs

We believe that everyone deserves access to quality health care and that every man and woman is their own ‘expert’ when it comes to their health (because who else knows your body better than you?). At Tolle Totum Therapies, we will always listen to you and work with you to develop a treatment strategy that is unique to YOU.

We value and work hard to protect and maintain our collective sovereign rights to freedom of choice regarding alternative therapies, alternative modalities of treatment, health care decisions and health improvement practices.

Our mission is to provide members with the highest quality health care available. Our concern is for the whole person – body, mind and spirit.

We are a group of like-minded, kind, empathetic and passionate practitioners who genuinely wish to contribute to the health of our community, both near and far. We are specialists in our respective fields and we work hard to ensure that you receive the individualised care that you deserve. We will NEVER push a stack of supplements on you or ask you to do things that are outside your comfort zone.

We believe in informed consent and will NEVER discriminate. All are welcome at our clinic.

Our Services

Naturopathy & Nutrigenomics

Naturopathy is the original medicine. It is a truly holistic approach that uses the healing power of nature to restore balance to the body. Treatment can include herbal and nutritional medicine, clean water, sunlight, exercise, stress management and self-care practices.

Nutrigenomics is the cutting edge of nutritional science.  It involves genetic testing and looks at the relationship between your genetic variants and how they influence your personal biochemistry.  Read more about Nutrigenomics and DNA testing with Denise here.

Denise can order and interpret a number of pathology and functional tests on your behalf and incorporate them into your treatment plan. These include microbiome, pathology and DNA testing.

The core of Denise’s Naturopathic and Nutrigenomic approach is education. She will work with you so you can understand your unique drivers and teach you how to manage your diet and lifestyle to maintain ongoing health and well being without the need for ongoing support. 

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a form of biofeedback that uses muscle testing to identify imbalances within the body. It is a blend of Eastern and Western medicine techniques that seeks to promote all aspects of health and well being, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.  

The underlying premise of kinesiology is that the body can heal itself if given the right environment. The goal of treatment is to identify any nutritional, emotional, physical or structural, psychological, energetic or spiritual imbalances, and then resolve them.

Bowen Therapy

Bowen is an holistic remedial body technique that works on the soft connective tissue and fascia.

Bowtech, the Original Bowen Technique, was developed in Australia by Oswald & Elaine Rentsch, after working with Mr Tom Bowen of Geelong.

It is a unique form of neuromuscular repatterning and it works primarily through the nervous system on both structural and energetic levels. The Technique is gentle and non-invasive.

A Bowen treatment consists of gentle, rolling movements, these stimulations activate a systematic response so powerful that a few minutes pause is observed to allow them to be integrated. A pattern of movements and pauses continues throughout the treatment, the rhythm is soothing and most patients fall asleep at least once during the session. Benefits are usually apparent within 2 sessions, even when longstanding conditions are being treated. Bowen results are lasting and profound.
