The team at Health Emporium would like to thank you for shopping with us and take this opportunity to let you know a little about who we are and what we stand for.
We opened the doors to our retail shop and natural health clinic over 16 years ago in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. We are a small, independent, family run store providing natural health care products, therapies and advice on all manner of health topics. This is not a chargeable service - it is free of charge. Naturally, we hope this will be offset with the purchase of a product that we may recommend, but, we are not trying to sell you anything.
Our team of carefully selected health professionals believe in what we do and in serving to the best of our ability, our local community and those who may be further afield. We have learned our craft through years of education and keep our knowledge up to date with ongoing training.
We practice natural healthcare ourselves and try to be role models to those we serve. We are here to support and nurture our community and each other. We do this by providing access to natural healthcare options whilst advocating sustainable practices now to ensure a better future for everyone.
We treat each person as the unique individual they are, therefore treatment for the same condition can vary from person to person. We have a holistic approach to healthcare and also believe the patient is a key part of their own healing. Our combined efforts can help you reach your goals supported by a team that really cares and puts people and planet first.
If you need help with a particular condition, or just need some general support, we would love to hear from you. We are proud to have qualified staff to support our mission and your health. There is also the option to schedule a private consultation if you would like additional support beyond the scope of our free service. However, I must make this point absolutely clear, our normal advice service is available to everyone and is free of charge.
