Kate Bevan-Wood | Our Practitioners
Hi Im Kate - wife, mother and lover of all things healthy.
My own love of nutrition stems back to my childhood and having access to either home grown or locally sourced food as a family, with my mum cooking up healthy meals and teaching us the importance of different food types. When my son was born he had eczema for the first few years of his life and I found that by eliminating certain foods from his diet helped to decrease the severity of this and it eventually disappeared altogether without the use of harsh creams and ointments. Knowing the impact that food could have on our bodies first hand only fuelled my interest further, so I enrolled on a 3 year diploma with the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine as a way of learning more and giving me the opportunity to share my passion with others.
Nutritional Therapy is not a one size fits all approach. It uses the application of nutritional science via a range of clinical assessment and diagnostic tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and how these may contribute to an individuals health concerns and presenting symptoms. These may include a full case history, functional, allergy and intolerance testing.
I put together personalised plans to recommend improvements to diet and lifestyle, while providing education about nutrition, support in the form of guided shopping, recipe ideas and supplementation where required to achieve optimal health and wellbeing.

What People Say
I would like to thank Wan, for a deep tissue and stone massage, it's an experience that I've never had before, already booked for next week, I would recommend this to anyone, please look at there website as there are numerous things to do within the complex.
I used the centre to help training and preparation for a marathon. As well as getting some great advice around technique and training, I was also introduced to Bowen Technique which helped repair a slight hamstring injury and also Kinesiology which allowed me to design a bespoke training diet. Would definitely recommend.
Had several neuro-energetic kinesiology appointments at the Centre and found the experience to be very beneficial and eye-opening. Would recommend to anyone. 5 star
I had four Bowen sessions each about three weeks apart, after the first session I felt a notable difference in my posture and in the strength of my spine, strangely I felt taller. By the fourth session I knew that my discomfort had been resolved and I am now able to move much more freely and flexibly without worrying about my back.
Got an appointment through really quickly. The staff were really friendly and made the procedures and testing easy to understand throughout, step by step. Really pleased with the outcome. Finally got the answers I was looking for and would highly recommend.
Went very well. Was very happy with how friendly and welcoming it all was, and the treatment was at the highest quality.
Before I had a series of Bowen sessions I had lived with lower back pain and discomfort for over ten years. I chose the Bowen technique as I wanted to be treated by a practitioner who understood that the body is a whole system. The technique itself is not invasive or stressful on the body as the underlying approach is that with the right support, time and gentle encouragement the body can heal.
Wow! As I left my session with the amazingly knowledgeable Ben Calder I said: I feel lighter! I feel so light because I now know what my body does and does not like. I cannot stop talking to everyone about how amazing Ben is! Everyone should go and see him! What an amazing soul Ben is! Super grateful that our lives crossed
Went there yesterday for my first yoga session. It's a great little place. Didn't know it was there until a few months ago. I also go there often to have a massage which I love!
Great service from Ben and his team. If you want your aches and pains sorting out or if you feel your life just isn't in balance you really should give Integral Health a try...
I highly recommend the Centre for Integral Health. I've been here for multiple sessions with Ben Calder, and honestly, you need to go and experience it for yourself. Friendly, professional and just a generally positive experience all around! The Centre offers such a range of services, I can't wait to try out a few of the other therapies they offer!
I was very impressed by the service from Integral Health. I was contacted and offered an appointment immediately after contacting the centre. Ben Calder gave me excellent advice and managed to sort out my issues in only one session.I would highly recommend this clinic.
Love the Qigong classes Ben runs. Professional, safe and informative. Thanks Ben
