Wellness Centres

Wellness centres are facilities dedicated to the promotion of health, and the prevention of illness through diet, exercise and alternative therapies. Ranging from small city-based centres to large rural-based health and wellness retreats, some famous wellness centres across the country include Balanced Wellness Centre in Hampshire, Alchemy in the rather unsuspecting Camden, The Chester Wellness Centre in the north-west and the Zen Health & Wellness Centre in Newcastle upon Tyne.

There is a fine line between a wellness centre and a medispa but the difference lies in the non-invasive and non-surgical treatments that address the root of the problem, not just the symptoms. Sometimes referred to as a wellness facility, health centre, wellness spa or wellness retreat, here your body can learn to help itself and build a natural resistance to disease and injury.

Wellness centres are a great point of contact if you're not getting the results you need from traditional medical help. Expect dedicated and personalised diagnosis combined with and alternative treatments and complementary therapies such as acupuncture, homeopathy, Ayurvedic massage, chiropody, colon hydrotherapy, nutritional advice and reflexology to name a few. You're also guaranteed to find a variety of classes and educational programs that encourage self-healing and support lifestyle changes including yoga, breathing techniques and meditation.
