Things are set to get physical in Preston city centre next week when a local clinic holds
a sensuous and therapeutic Open Day.
The Preston Clinic of Herbal Medicine on St Wilfrid's Street is opening its doors on
Tuesday 3 February from 1.00-5.00 pm for people to find out more about herbal
medicines and what they can offer.
And as well as the more well known uses of herbal remedies for aiding relaxation and
warding off colds, some of the more unusual uses will be unveiled.
"Many of the herbs we use for remedies and treatments are also used to produce natural
and sensuous massage and bath oils," explains Angela Grunwald, "And with
Valentine's Day just around the comer, we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to
get something really special as a Valentine's Day present for your loved one.
"We will also be offering a complimentary cup of herbal tea, which is an ideal way to
help with stress, colds or just detoxing after Christmas".
All staff at the Clinic are fully qualified and experienced medical herbalists, working
alongside final year Herbal Medicine students from the University of Central
Lancashire. They will be offering free confidential consultations, so that you can find
out what herbal medicine can do for you. There will be stalls with a full range of herbal
teas, oils and tinctures available, along with specialist sessions including 'how herbs can
help you with the menopause' at 1.15 pm and 'the medicinal use of essential oils' at
4.30 pm.
So whether you're looking for a relaxing bath or massage oil as a gift, or need help with
that persistent cough or cold, why not call in. For further information or to book a short
consultation at the special rate of £5, call 01772 252526.
