Nutrition is the process we go through to decide what we eat and drink and can play a fundamental part in our health, growth and future wellbeing. The science of nutrition – the branch that deals with nutrients – is complex and ever-changing, hence the need for continuous research and development.


To understand the nutrition of an individual, the process of identifying individual energy requirements is an important step. This allows us to calculate a person’s specific calorie requirements which are made up of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

Whether you’re looking to improve general health or improve sporting performance, our Nutritionist at The Treatment Room is trained and qualified to assess your needs.
