Our holistic approach
Our holistic approach closely adheres to the principle of professional holistic therapies taking into account the 'whole' person and not only their presenting symptoms.
Often people experience physical symptoms such as skin complaints, headaches, digestion & other problems which may be the result of imbalances due to factors such as stress, anxiety and emotional problems. Our aim is not just treating the symptoms but trying to address the underlying cause and focusing in the longer term to maintain optimum physical & emotional health and an overall improved sense of well-being.
