Taru Towers

New Client Coordinator

Taru's first career was in the film and arts sector before she retrained in nutritional therapy at the University of Westminster. Her training in nutrition was based on holistic functional medicine principles, which make much sense to her both personally and clinically. An avid believer in the potent interaction between the physical and psychological, Taru is proud to be part of the clinic’s skilful team as a New Client Coordinator.
