Welcome to the site of Frome’s original natural therapy clinic which was established in 1982. We started practicing on the ground floor of our house in Oakfield Road in the days when chiropractic and homeopathy was little known and very often frowned upon. Despite this, patient numbers rapidly increased, and by 1989 we outgrew our premises and moved to a purpose built clinic in Bridge Street, where we have remained for over 20 years.
Over this period of time there have been enormous changes particularly in the chiropractic profession: a Parliamentary Bill was passed, the Chiropractors Act, in 1994 which officially recognised the practice and insured that only qualified people could call themselves a chiropractor. The General Chiropractic Council was established soon after this which is finally answerable to the Privy Council.
Homeopathy is now widely used all over the world as its benefits as an effective and gentle form of therapy have become evident. Unfortunately there is still no Act of Parliament protecting the profession, but this will hopefully come about in the near future.
Our final move is upon us: to the new Frome Medical Centre, where we have a suite of rooms on the first floor. The Centre is a wonderful new facility for the community with every conceivable service available giving patients a vast array of treatment options.
We are delighted to be involved in this new beginning for local health care and look forward to further developing natural health in Frome.
