Healthy Space for Complementary Therapy
The complementary and alternative therapy industry is growing rapidly in the UK. Over 6 million British people consult over 120,000 practitioners, spending almost £300m annually: a figure that is rising by 10% or more each year.
From chiropractors to reflexologists and masseurs to homeopathists, the general public is increasingly looking for an alternative to traditional medical practices. Indeed, there is a growing recognition amongst medical professionals that complementary therapies have an important role to play in healthcare.
As consumers we have become much more aware, and wary, of the side effects of many chemical medicines and a significant proportion of GPs now refer their patients to alternative therapists as a natural complement to their traditional ministrations. If you have seen your own practice benefit from these trends, you may also be finding that the space you are currently using is becoming increasingly inadequate.
The Anglo-American John Muir once said that “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” So what better space for a complementary therapist to tend to those seeking their expertise, than one that is both natural, beautiful and healthy?
