Jen Barlass
E.N., Dip.Nat, Dip.Herb.Med, Dip.Th.M.

Founding Director & Naturopath

Jen has been assisting people make choices about their healthcare for all of her adult life. She started her career as an enrolled nurse in the late 1980’s and then moved on to study many of the natural health practices available today, including Massage, Ayurvedic Lifestyle, Naturopathy and Medical Herbalism. She graduated from Wellpark College in 2001 winning the Top Student award and with the support of her husband and their two sons, she went on to establish one of the most recognised brands in Naturopathy in NZ today.

Jen utilises many methods including Genetic Profiling, Saliva/Urinary and Hormonal tests, amongst others to gather the information she needs to assess the health status of her clients. Using this information Jen then focuses on optimal nutrition, lifestyle changes, emotional shifts and detoxification protocols, to allow the innate ability of the body to heal itself.

With many of her clients requiring high performance nutrition, Jen has enjoyed working with clients from elite sporting arenas through to assisting couples with fertility issues. Her desire to impart knowledge inspires many others to follow in her footsteps and she has been instrumental in changing the lives of many of her clients and their families. A past Lecturer at Wellpark College and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic she is passionate about learning and laughing in more or less equal doses, and has the ability to pass on complex information in the most simplistic form, making this process fun.

As there is a growing need for education in the community Jen has presented to many corporates/teams on many aspects of natural health, diet, stress management, and increasing performance. She has appeared on Sky Sport 365 Live, Inside NZ documentary - What is really in our Food?, and has written for magazines such as NZ Fitness, as well as the Girls Day Out website.

Jen also currently works Mon - Fri for an Australian Company educating practitioners around NZ in how to prescribe and build safe protocols using this Practitioner only clinic range, which she is extremely passionate about.

Currently a professional member of NMHNZ
