The WESSEX HEALTHY LIVING CENTRE has been open to the public since March 1977.
We are a registered charity and non profit making organisation and provide a variety of treatments each week by qualified practitioners (all of whom give some voluntary time) in the field of holistic medicine, to people who would otherwise be deprived of this choice.
We depend on voluntary help and donations to meet our expenses. Since our inception there has been a greater awareness by people of all ages to the importance of natural therapies. Perhaps this has come about as a reaction against the artificial lifestyle, environment and diet of the twentieth century which has been brought to the attention of the public by the media.
Unfortunately, the information and education facilities available to the public are frequently inadequate and expensive. The various therapies that come under the umbrella of “Complementary Medicine” are beyond the purse of those within the lower income groups, the unemployed or those receiving supplementary benefits.
Most of these natural therapies are not available through the National Health Service.
We offer to the young a programme of prevention and to those of more mature years an opportunity to attain and maintain a better quality of life and to cope with the stress of modern living i.e. anxiety, headaches, insomnia, lethargy, depression, constipation, smoking, drinking and other conditions.
