To alleviate suffering by working to increase the understanding and availability of the benefits of complementary approaches to health and wellbeing.
The following tenets underpin all our work:
- That complementary therapies (delivered as one-to-one interventions by a qualified practitioner) can provide side-effect-free help with a wide range of conditions – particularly those chronic, difficult problems with which conventional drug-based treatment struggles.
- That practice of a range of self-help techniques drawn from systems of healing such as Yoga, T’ai Chi, Pilates, Alexander Technique, Meditation can enhance, restore and maintain health.
- That these approaches are an extremely cost-effective way of improving people’s health and wellbeing and that the best health care will result from an integration of conventional with complementary approaches.
- That professionals who work with people – (ie health professionals, social workers and teachers) should be familiar with these techniques.
