The Hale Clinic was established in 1987 and officially opened by H.R.H. The Prince of Wales in 1988. The Clinic was founded by Teresa Hale whose aim is to combine and integrate the principles of conventional and complementary medicine, on the basis that no one system has the whole answer to every medical problem.
Great emphasis is placed on preventative medicine as a way of maintaining good health generally, and after treatment.
There are over 60 practitioners based at the Hale Clinic in London. Several are medical physicians and many are multi-disciplinary. Of the complementary medical therapies practiced at the clinic, some are over 3,000 years old and others have developed in the last 50 years.
Although they differ considerably in the way they treat illness, they all view the practice of complementary medicine as helping the individual organism achieve its natural harmony and balance, thereby making it much less susceptible to illness and disease.
