Herbal Medicine

A gentle and effective way of restoring health and balance to the body aided through Herbalism, Reflexology and Nutrition. Herbal medicine is the treatment of illness using whole plant material (in the form of tinctures, teas, capsules, creams, ointments).

It is the most ancient form of medicine know to mankind. For centuries our ancestors discovered which plants were most effective in healing illlnesses and passed this knowledge on from generation to generation. In recent years, modern research has reinforced and helped our understanding of many of these traditional uses. In Ireland, herbal medicine is often referred to as 'alternative' or 'complementary' but it is the most widely practised form of medicine worldwide with over 80% of the world's population relying on herbs for health.
