Lynn’s Natural Therapy Centre is marking its 20th anniversary with a series of free talks throughout June and an open day where people will have the chance to find out more about complementary therapies.
The centre, at The Granaries in Nelson Street, was founded by Sue Baxter, who specialises in psychotherapy, counselling and craniosacral therapy.
Sue said: “I set it up because I had experience of the value of complementary medicine and there was no centre where qualified and professional therapists worked and where people could feel safer than going into other people’s homes for treatment.”
When it was first up and running there were two or three therapists, but now there is a team of eight offering a wide range of treatments.
“We are not offering beauty therparies – we are about health and well-being. Our work provides help for all kinds of problems, from stress-related issues to physical problems, such as a sports injury,” said Sue.
“I love to see clients feeling better in themselves. People find that complementary therapy can be hugely beneficial, making them feel better and able to cope with what they are going through. I see people in many life-changing situations and it is rewarding to see them overcome their difficulties.”
The series of talks in June are designed to raise awareness of how people can improve their health and well-being in an accessible way.
