Thank you for seeking the guidance of a natural healthcare practitioner on your journey to better health.

Here at The Motueka Herbal Dispensary clinic I offer a comprehensive Naturopathic Consultation with a qualified Naturopath and Medical Herbalist.

I am fully qualified to dispense high quality and clinically effective products for you to achieve optimal health and quality of life. I regularly attend training and keeps well-informed of the latest research and treatment options to give you the best health outcomes.

The Motueka Herbal Dispensary clinic supports several practitioner companies as part of my clinic practise, and includes Metagenics, Nutrisearch and Bioceuticals. These are clinic based “Practitioner Only” health care products and support programmes. The Metagenics range of Natural Medicine is exclusively available to qualified Health Care Practitioners.  Sometimes I may use functional pathology testing through Nutrisearch, and I use the highly recommended supplementation ranges that come from this company as well.

Furthermore, we will follow up your case to ensure you receive the full benefits of our service. We use Liquid Medicinal Herbs and High Potency Vitamins to redress imbalances in the body. Herbs are made up of a wide range of active constituents, that work synergistically together. We do not isolate single constituents, but recognise the value of whole plant extractions. Herbs have a long history of use, dating back 5000 years. Our clinic also uses Native Rongoa Maori where relevant, thus maintaining a commitment to the Kaupapa of Aotearoa.


Naturopaths and Medical Herbalists are a vital part of the health community, we use a multitude of blood tests, hair tests, saliva and urine tests, to ascertain your health status. We format a personalised program individually suited to your case. This means we can work on many levels at once and achieve a more sustainable recovery program. Book now online or direct with Christine-Jane on 021 716 350 to start your journey to better health.


Herbs are one of the safest and oldest methods for achieving wellness. The longest clinical trial on record, traditional herbal medicine offers remedies for many health conditions. Adrenal Fatigue, Mood Disorders, Hormonal Imbalances and much more. Herbs are not single remedies, they contain blends of Phytochemicals that work together synergisitically, working on many different levels at once. Motueka Herbal Dispensary can tailor make these recipes for your individual needs.


Let's face it, when all is well, we take our health for granted, but when we are unwell, the effect can be devastating. Missed work days, life is less enjoyable, maybe we are unable to digest food properly. It can be awful! Seeing a Naturopath can help you return to wellness and reduce the likelihood of relapses. ``An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure`` We will endevour to heal you and furthermore, show you how to help yourself in the future and how to read the sign of imbalance, so you can maintain your wellness in the future.


Sometimes, we need a little extra help to achieve health. This is where vitamins are, yes that's right! VITAL! Low levels or the wrong types of vitamins can create their own health issues. A Naturopath will give you professional guidance, offering the highest quality and most relevant vitamins for your case. We always return to diet, however, and food sources, once we have achieved health stability.

Christine-Jane Wakefield BHSc (Comp Med) Adv. Dip Her. Med. and Naturopathy Practitioner Diploma in Fertility and Reproductive Health


I grew up in Motueka with the lush native bush of Abel Tasman National Park as my natural playground. Today I have a deep interest in the power of New Zealand herbs in healing, and use this where ever possible in my treatments with clients.

I have a Bachelor of Health Science in Complementary Medicine from Charles Sturt University in Australia, an Advanced Diploma in Medical Herbalism and an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy from the South Pacific College of Natural Therapies in New Zealand. As part of this training I have achieved papers in: Massage Therapy, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine to name a few. I have recently completed The Practitioner Diploma in Fertility and Reproductive Health, which enables me to assist you with any reproductive health concerns and pre conception plans for creating a happy healthy pregnancy and baby. A Naturopath is a great way to improve your overall health and wellbeing, as I can assist in so many areas.

I have been working in a retail environment as a Manager of a Health Store in Onehunga and Devonport in Auckland New Zealand, since graduating in 2009, which enabled me to have a great broad knowledge of many issues that people may have difficulty with on a day to day basis. I have recently moved back to the South island, Motueka, and am currently working at Health2000. My Naturoapth clinic is based at 354 High Street, but can also see clients anywhere, thanks to technology like Skype, I can assist you wherever you may be.

The areas that I work with is varied, but I have a very keen interest in natural Fertility support and preconception plans, as well as using natural remedies to treat skin problems. I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease as a young woman, and have since discovered this runs strongly within my family, in combination with methylation defects (detoxification pathways), so assisting people deal with repairing and healing the digestive system is an area of keen interest to me. Adrenal insufficiency is another area I have had a personal journey with, and have assisted many clients with this condition, helping them to lead a healthier more energetic life. The importance of nutrition in managing health conditions is a crucial part of the healing process, and nutrition plans are a big part of why you would book an appointment with me. another part of my clinic is as a massage therapy, so if you are interested in a therapeutic or relaxing massage please let me know.

Like many Naturopaths and Herbalists, the list of areas that can be supported with natural and nutritional support is varied and wide, and could include any health concern that you may have. Some of the most commonly asked areas of support include fertility and hormonal support, sleep issues, stress and fatigue. Skin and digestive issues, and general immune and health and wellbeing support.

If you need support with any of these issues or any other issue, please contact me on 021 716 350 or via email on

Outside of work I am a keen practitioner of Naam yoga, which  relaxes the body but keeps my active mind occupied, pilates with Onebodi Pilates in Motueka. I enjoy cycling and swimming in the beautiful oceans around the Tasman Bay beaches.
