A new business, inspired by a growing awareness of the benefits of alternative and complimentary healthcare, has opened in Woolpit.
A mother and daughter partnership, Woolpit Complementary in Brickfields Business Park, Old Stowmarket Road, is also a social enterprise, offering a range of free services and discounted Tai Chi classes in collaboration with a ‘fitter village’ scheme.
Partner and clinical manager Michaela Harvey Lawrence has been practicing acupuncture for more than 10 years and says, though she considers us ‘very lucky’ to have a national health service in this country, the therapies she offers ‘truly have a lot to offer’.
She said: “I have used, and continue to use, acupuncture and physical therapies, which are a tremendous help, both physically and emotionally. Therefore, I know personally that a combined approach really does work.”
Her daughter, Emma, has more than five years’ experience as a business and events coordinator and manages the day-to-day responsibilities of the centre as partner and general manager.
“This is not an elite service - the patient is our main focus and their needs come first,” she said.
