Dr Pierce Van Tonder is a registered Phytotherapist (Medical Herbalist) with the AHPCSA and The American Herbalists Guild (AHG) (USA). Dr Pierce joined The Renewal Institute in 2017 and consults from the Brooklyn, Irene, Illovo, Bedfordview, and Waterfall branches in Gauteng.
Dr Pierce has a passion for travel and has traveled extensively believing that an appreciation of culture and understanding of diversity sculpts a person and teaches one acceptance, tolerance, and self-love. In keeping with his desire to appreciate culture, it makes sense that Dr Pierce has a passion for Latin American and ballroom dancing a medium in which he is an instructor and competitor.
When not at work Dr Pierce may be found oil painting, on nature expeditions, or enjoying a chicken basil pesto with friends. His ultimate escape and place of relaxation are the Klein Karoo.
A lifelong learner Dr Pierce attends all Skin Renewal in-house training as well as the monthly doctor's meetings to ensure that he is abreast of the latest advances in the field of medicine. Dr Pierce holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education with MANCOSA and has qualified as an Iridologist, La Stone Masseur, and Usui Reiki Master.
