Have you ever tried to change your lifestyle habits to encourage wellness, weight loss, or even modify a disease state without the use of Pharmacology?
There are so many diets and exercise platforms that are available but simply, most if not all diets that are advertised are not suited to everyone. As Human beings none of us are the same!
Cassia Health is a group of Allied Health Care Professionals who have gained qualifications within evidenced based scientific and medical knowledge. They understand medical conditions and the therapeutic requirements to promote optimum health.
Unlike other diets Cassia Health has united Therapists together alongside Personal Training specialists, Chefs, and local organic farm food producers to bring all round packages of care to your door after an initial assessment and prescription of wellness has been created for you.
Research has shown by using the right diet for you and increasing exercise, you can not only change your physical appearance and improve mental wellness, but you can directly improve some of the symptoms of chronic state diseases, affects of menopause, reduce the symptoms of ageing and improve athletic performance.
Conditions such as Diabetes Type 2, Cardiovascular disease, Stroke, some Cancers, Osteoporosis, Dental disease, and Arthritis can be improved with the conservative management of diet.
Journey to Parenthood
For those who are wishing to create a family or are expecting a newborn, improving your health can be of great benefit.
Our Core Principle
The core principle of implementing behaviour change is making the ‘healthy choice’ an easy choice.
Our core principle is offering each client a bespoke prescription of dietary intake which is underpinned by evidenced based therapeutic practice to enable a change in their health state for now and in the future.
Once we have created your personal prescription for health, we will offer you an easy and correct choice of menus, exercise platforms and massage intervention, bringing your plan to optimise your body function for health and wellness needs.
What We Offer
For some menopause brings the joys of freedom from the symptoms of the monthly cycle symptoms and social planning, but for others it brings a tsunami of physical symptoms and for a few, mood swings and anguish.
Pregnancy is an incredibly special time for every woman. For some the build up to becoming pregnant is a much importance as the wonderful surprise itself.
There are many ‘one size’ fits all platforms discussing food and eating habits, but weight management is more than ‘what we eat’, it is about ‘what we do and how we do it’.
It is recognised that workplace pressures can be a cause anxiety and feelings of isolation and with this unhealthy eating habits.

Hi I’m Karen your Menu therapist!
I’m a foodie through and through so I trained to become a chef many moons ago at Northampton College..
This led me to work in many kitchens here in the UK and overseas including the French Alps as a chalet chef.
I’ve always enjoyed creating exciting , nutritious menus and I felt inspired to teach our younger generation so I trained as a teacher of Food & Nutrition.
I enjoyed many years in the classroom teaching various ages of students and courses including The Leith’s Certificate of Food & Wine to 6th formers.
Many foodie educational trips were organised to places including Barcelona. and Venice and all thoroughly enjoyed until the ash cloud came along!..... being stranded at Girona airport with 40 students was certainly no fun!!
I’ve run cookery schools and clubs for little ones to engage them in food preparation whilst always promoting and encouraging healthy eating which I feel is essential for a healthy mind and body.
I’ve been very lucky to have honed my skills throughout the years working in this way, and I still have a passion for food, and love sharing that passion with people.
I am super excited and delighted to be joining Cassia Health and I look forward to creating fun, nutritious and creative menus for you and your family to enjoy!
