East Meets West

We believe that the ability to create positive change is innate to us all. However, based on the notion that "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts", access to optimal health is much easier in a community of like-minded people who work together.

The indigenous peoples of ancient civilisations possessed great wisdom and intuitive knowledge about the inter-connectedness of body, mind, emotion and spirit - as well as all living things. By living alongside nature, they learned about the immense intelligence inherent in the natural universe. Additionally, due to their closely-knit communities, ancient cultural and spiritual traditions and values were passed down through the generations. These civilisations can offer a new perspective and insight into the comparatively mechanistic, scientific and materialistic Western lifestyle and value-systems.

Whilst western technology and medicine have proved to be invaluable and ground-breaking in many areas of health care such as trauma, anaesthesia, screening and surgery, there are, inevitably, limited resources within the NHS to assist people with chronic conditions such as stess, depression, infertility, migraine, joint pain, digestive disorders, anxiety and so on. Working in conjunction with mainstream medicine, therefore, we offer a variety of complementary treatments that are tailored to each individual’s needs and preferences, and which specifically target these kinds of conditions.

Rather than working against each other, we would like to see both Eastern and Western, ancient and modern traditions working together and complementing one another.
