Highworth Holistic Health

Highworth – The Clinic is here. Holistic – the philosophy that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. [Collins concise dictionary]. Health – the status of being bodily and mentally vigorous and free from disease [Collins concise dictionary]

Highworth Holistic Health

Highworth Holistic Health is a friendly multi disciplinary community of complementary therapists.  We are situated in Newburgh Place in Highworth, just off St. Michaels Avenue.  There is free car parking behind the clinic.
Highworth is easily accessible from Lechlade, Faringdon, and the North Swindon area including Tadpole Garden Village, St Andrews Ridge, Blunsdon, and Abbey Meads. See “The centre” page for map.  If you prefer to come by bus, you can see the clinic from the “Station Road” bus stop on the number 7 bus route.
Jane Faulkes started the clinic in 2015.  She is a McTimoney chiropractor, who started work in 2004 in Swindon.  Over the years she had recognised that working together with other therapists could improve the overall patient, and practitioner experience.  So, she developed the clinic with the aim of developing a group of like minded therapists all working together under one roof.
Everyone working from here is self-employed, insured and fully qualified in their specialisation.
