Meet Hanna Emke
Naturopath & Traditional Herbalist
I'm a hands in the soil herbalist. I prefer to teach my clients to use tools that are life long.
I descend from Ngati Raukawa on the Kapiti Coast in Otaki . My whanau have taught me to forage from the land, of which I have such a deep connection to. This has sculpted my career path, and is why I use the words traditional herbalism and natural medicine.
I believe in being open and honest and creating a safe space for people to be heard. I welcome diversity and individuality and cultural differences. Knowing that your individuality, culture or childhood has shaped you into the person you are now, therefore it should be recognised and acknowledged.
I have suffered at the hands of sensitive and reactive skin. My teenage years consisted of never ending rashes on my face and hands. I have overcome that and believe it is an invaluable learning tool for my clients. The journey to skin health is such a personal, sensitive and sometimes upsetting situation. So I have chosen to use my suffering as a tool for others to learn from.
Journeys are how I describe the pathways you will undertake with me as your practitioner. It can be meandering, slow moving, hard or fast going. But eventually you will reach your destination. Honesty and openness will ensure you are aware of what your journey may consist of.
My focus is on pre conception, pregnancy and postpartum. The journey of childbearing is magical and beautiful. We would look into supporting your body to raise the next generation. Infant and Children are such a huge focus for me, and ensuring the health of generations to come starts first with them.
