This area seems to be a natural meeting place for many schools and teachers of a diverse range of therapies and classes and there were many opportunities to experience these through local classes and workshops. It was here that I first got interested in yoga, learnt how to practise the Metamorphic Technique and trained with the Association of Natural Medicine in massage and aromatherapy.
After moving to a remote hill farm on the North York Moors in the mid 90’s I joined with a few other local therapists to set up a natural health centre in our local market town. We wanted to create somewhere to work together and provide a safe relaxing environment for therapies and classes. We set up Kirkbymoorside natural health centre in 2000 and it has been home to many practitioners and seen many clients come through its door ever since.
