COMPLEMENTARY AND HOLISTIC THERAPIES
Welcome to Chepstow Natural Health Centre
At the Monmouth and Chepstow Natural Health Centres we aim to provide a wide choice of complementary or 'Holistic' natural therapies to assist you in the process of healing. We believe that health is a condition of harmony and right relationship between the many elements that constitute our being; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. When this balance is disturbed in any way then we become susceptible to illness and develop symptoms. An Holistic approach to healing views these symptoms as inherently meaningful messages, signalling disharmony and informing us where and how we may restore balance.
Using techniques both ancient and modern, our practitioners strive to enhance the body's natural vitality and capacity for self-healing. We seek to find the underlying cause of disease, rather than simply treating symptoms. The origin of illness may be very different in individual, although superficially similar cases and therefore, treatments may vary considerably. We advocate the active participation of patients in the healing process, encouraging taking a greater responsibility for our health.
Our therapists are professionally trained, qualified and insured and are members of their relevant professional bodies with appropriate codes of ethics. All are happy to work in a complementary way with your G.P. or specialist should this be required. You are welcome to have an informal chat with any therapist before you make your choice of treatment.

Appointment times vary between the therapies from half an hour to an hour and a half. The regularity and number of sessions will also vary greatly with the different treatments, depending as it does on a number of individual factors, e.g. the severity and duration of the complaint, your age, overall state of health etc.
Your practitioner will be able to give you an approximation following the initial session. This first session is generally longer to enable a full assessment to be made. It is wise to inform your practitioner of any prescribed drugs that you may be taking or any other treatments that you are receiving.
