She has visited and worked in Integrative Oncology Hospitals in Europe and Asia where she collaborated with clinicians at multiple Integrative Oncology Hospitals. In 2018-2019 she visited Integrative Oncology Clinics in China, Thailand, Japan and the USA, allowing Tanya to share information with other practitioners and continually develop the MIOG Integrative Oncology programs.

Testimonials from our MIOG Clients

"Tanya immediately puts you at ease, even though your world has turned upside down she makes you feel like there's hope. She explains everything better than the oncologists and doctors and gives great detail on the treatment plan and why. The treatment plan that Tanya builds is very helpful too." 

"From the first appointment I found Tanya to be a great listener and very empathic. She had a wealth of knowledge for me to tap into. The plan she made up for me made sense and explained why for every supplement inclusion, dietary inclusion/avoidance/reduction. She has taken on board all my ups and downs and allows me to have my moments of crying etc. I feel comfortable with her." 

"Tanya has helped with supplements, dietary advice and communicating with oncologist specialists to help us make more informed decisions and choices. Her medical knowledge and background give us confidence to make our own choices without the persistent (and sometimes bullying) advice to follow mainstream strategies." 

"Outstanding practice operating in a new state of the art clinic. Tanya Wells the principal is an amazing person with so much warmth and empathy."
