Become a Serial Seminar Attendee!

We believe that education is the key to long term health gains. Our community courses are the core education aspect of our service. They are designed to be educational and fun. Seminars give us time to teach you more about your body and how it works. These seminars back up what we teach in clinic so that you can learn more about your body ~ education which lasts you a lifetime. All of our talks are small, informative and personal. We are free to talk to afterwards to decide whether you need to book a consultation.

P.S. Health and wellbeing are our favourite subjects!

Each seminar is held at the Tannery and they run monthly from February to November covering all major aspects of the body. If you would like a seminar done at your workplace just give us a call.
