About our Skincare

Healthy Skin Naturally – No Referral Necessary.

Hi, my name is Karen Torpelund. My goal is to help you develop a skin care routine to heal your skin, reduce symptoms, prevent further skin damage and prevent flares.  I am committed to holistic wellness and  and offer a range of natural wellness solutions through my business ‘Breathing Space’.

In my Salt Therapy Clinic I have come across many clients who have suffered from itchy and troublesome skin disorders.

These clients come for a number of reasons. They are frustrated with treatments that are uncomfortable, or do not give lasting relief, or they are concerned with side-effects, or they are looking for a simple, natural and effective approach.
In 2014 I found out about Dr Michael Tirant’s treatment protocols and skin care range.

These protocols are directed toward breaking the inflammation cycle from within by correcting dietary/nutrient, biochemical and hormonal imbalances and by dealing with other triggers that may be chemical or lifestyle related.

Just addressing the symptoms is unlikely to provide long-term results. Unless this internal cycle is broken, long-term resolution is elusive at best.

Salt Therapy is a wonderfully effective therapy for Skin Conditions. However, I have found that using a holistic approach by additionally addressing the triggers and developing a personalized natural treatment plan for my clients can accomplish an even better result.

We have very effective treatments for:

  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • Fungal and Yeast infections
  • Generalised itchy skin conditions

I look forward to helping you to alleviate your discomfort and achieve clear healthy skin.

I also love empowering and healing people through Kinesiology, Salt Therapy, Buteyko Breathing, and Massage.

Your Skincare Plan

I will tailor your skin care plan based on five simple steps

  1. I review your history and identify the primary trigger that initiated your condition.
  2. We identify the secondary triggers that continue to exacerbate your condition.
  3. We develop a customised treatment plan to get your condition under control NOW.
  4. We treat your symptoms and address your triggers to help you achieve long-term remission.
  5. We empower and educate you to take control of your own treatment regime
