Welcome to Lifeways

 

Friendly, peaceful, supportive.

Lifeways is a complementary natural health centre with an acre of community-run garden located in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon.

We provide a safe, high quality environment for the practice of more than 30 complementary and traditional therapies and one-to-one counselling.   In addition we run regular meditation, Pilates and Yoga classes as well as a range of weekend workshops and training courses.

Lifeways facilities can be hired for therapy sessions, meetings, seminars, workshops and even parties. Charities, not for profit and community organisations pay a reduced price for the use of our rooms and garden.  Surplus generated is reinvested in projects that benefit our local community.

The centre was established in 1982 by Heather and Don Burton. Their aim was to promote naturally healthy living and provide opportunities for people to learn how they can take more responsibility for their own health.

This philosophy remains at the heart of our ethos.
