About Us

Choosing a Practitioner

It is important to choose a qualified Nutritional Therapist who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of Nutritional Therapy.
Our Nutritional Therapists are registered with the Nutritional Therapists of Ireland (NTOI), www.ntoi.ie

By choosing Nutritional Therapists registered with the NTOI you can be confident that they are properly trained, work by a strict code of ethics and practice and carry insurance. Our therapists regularly attend CPD (Continued Professional Development) courses in order to keep up to date on the latest developments and research in nutrition.

Both our therapists qualified with distinction from the Irish Institute for Nutrition and Health in Bray, www.iinh.net

Their enthusiasm for nutrition and health brought them together and in 2009 they opened The Nutrition Clinic in Carlow.
