We are a unique Holistic Charity in Scotland making a difference to the lives of people with health, mental health and wellbeing issues. We offer one to one Complementary Therapies in our Holistic Health Project to support individuals and Nature Connection to support families.


Our Holistic Health Project and our Nature Connection are aimed at people who are in a financial disadvantaged position or low income. Our services are available to people independent of religion, political viewpoint, nationality, race, gender, creed or social standing.


We believe that every human being, independent of their financial circunstances, should be able to have access to complementary therapies, holistic ways and connect with nature in order to have good health, positive mental health and wellbeing.


Complementary Therapies and Nature Connection help to reduce stress and create well being, it prevents illnesses and help people get better quicker when they are unwell, lacking energy or going through mental health crises. It works in conjunction and cooperation with conventional medicine, assisting in the process of recovery and healing enabling individuals to progress and move towards positive health much quicker.


At our drop in Centre in Edinburgh we provide support that makes lasting improvements to health, mental health and wellbeing. We are established since 2003 and our charitable services are supported by a team of over 30 volunteers. We want to see people get well and stay well.


For those who lead a busy life and can afford it financially, our qualified and experienced therapists, who are all volunteers in our projects, offer private therapies wich offers the advantage and flexibility of days and times .


We see our work as a deep expression of compassion for others and our living planet. To serve with unconditional love is what we do. It is who we are. Our work, which comes from the heart, helps you to restore balance.


Our dream: To see an Integrated Healthcare System operating in Scotland and in the UK one day. We believe Complementary Therapies can help the NHS help people gain a vibrant heath again.


Our mission: To help people to re-gain control of their health, mental health and wellbeing, build their confidence, gain greater awareness and understanding of themselves.
