They are often referred by their doctors or increasingly self-referred for a wide range of life and medical problems ranging from headaches, high blood pressure, back pain, heart disease, cancer, stress, depression and anxiety. In many instances, people enrol, not because they are feeling physically, emotionally or mentally unwell, but because they feel they would like to gain more balance and peace in their lives.
