WOMEN’S HOMEOPATHIC DROP-IN CLINIC – WOMEN ONLY

March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Healing Clinic, 14 Merchants Place, Merchantgate
York, YO1 9TU
+ Google Map

We will be explaining the new Drop - In being set up for acute ailments for women who could not normally afford to attend the Healing Clinic for treatments. Women's ailments are often dismissed and belittled when they present them or talk about them. Doctors often have not enough time to listen. Here women will be fully listened to, and helped according to what they are saying - not what an expert has decided is wrong with them. Do come along and ask any questions you may have. Wheelchair accessible, accessible toilet, children welcome THIS IS PART OF YORK INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S WEEK PROGRAMME - SEE www.yorkwomen.org.uk
