We are a unique Holistic Charity in Scotland making a difference to the lives of people with health and wellbeing issues who are in an economical disadvantaged position including people on low income.

We offer one to one holistic support and group nature connection for the wellbeing of mind, body and spirit. We provide support that makes lasting improvements to health and wellbeing.

We raise awareness of the benefits of holistic therapies and the benefits of being in nature. Our services help people re-gain control of and improve their health and quality of life.

Our charity is based in Edinburgh and established since 2003. Our services are run by a team of over 30 volunteers. We want to see people get well and stay well.

We believe that every human being, independent of their financial circumstances or background, should be able to have access to holistic therapies, connect with nature and be in control of their own health and wellbeing.

We see our work as a deep expression of compassion for others and our living planet. To serve holistically and with unconditional love is what we do. It is who we are. Our work restores balance.
