As a holistic nutritionist I educate my clients on how to utilize food as medicine. We discuss what foods are right for you and your specific condition, the science behind why these foods work and implement strategies that are feasible. Nutrition is the foundation to all health and if you are trying to achieve a specific goal such as balancing your mood or hormones, reduce fatigue, or are just curious to know how you can use food to maximize your well being, I’m here for you.

Cassia Rocha - 789 Dupont Naturopathic F

Cassia Rocha, D.O.


I obtained my BSc (Hons) in Osteopathy in 2004 in England, at the European School of Osteopathy. I have concluded the post-graduate Biodynamic programme and, as part of my continuing education, I carried on studying traditional Osteopathy with the founder of the Biodynamic approach in the US. Biodynamic is a rare form of Osteopathy where Science and Art are in perfect integration to create deep access to the body’s innate intelligence using only very gentle, light touch.
I treat all conditions, from pains and aches to internal organs and emotional problems such as anxiety and depression. 
As a result, all kinds of patients, from newborn babies to the elderly can benefit from the treatment.
