New concept 'Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre' opened by Liz Earle
Published: 26th September 2018
On 26th September, the Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre was officially opened in Stratford-Upon-Avon to provide specialist treatments, solutions and care for women going through the perimenopause, the menopause – and beyond. The first of its kind in the UK, the Newson Health Centre is the brainchild of Dr Louise Newson who through her work in general practice has been overwhelmed by the demand from women for an approach from the medical profession that understands the menopause and tailors treatments to the individual. The Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing centre, which has attracted interest from women throughout the UK and beyond, was officially opened by inspirational wellbeing expert, Liz Earle MBE.
Liz Earle MBE said “I am delighted that the Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre is now open and fully support Louise and her team in their important work. I wrote my book The Good Menopause Guide to help women feel confident they have the tools to feel and look their radiant best and this new centre will certainly help women to achieve that – providing them with the information and guidance they need”.
Dr Newson has partnered with two local GPs, Dr Rebecca Lewis and Dr Jill Crowfoot, to form Newson Health Ltd.
Driven by a passion to provide a better education on the subject and issues of menopause for all, Dr Newson and her fellow female GP menopause experts offer one-to-one consultations to provide support and guidance to women of all ages who are experiencing perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms. There is currently a waiting list for appointments as demand is so high.
Dr Newson said “Having more doctors working with me means that we are able to offer more appointments for women. This centre will also provide appointments for other services related to the menopause. It is a new concept having GPs with an interest in the menopause working together.”
The Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre provides dedicated holistic wellbeing services such as yoga, nutritional advice, women’s health physiotherapy, acupuncture, counselling and hypnotherapy.
The centre will also be running exclusive ‘Wellness Retreat’ weekends which will provide women with the opportunity to make connections, share experiences of the menopause and participate in bespoke programmes. Staying in beautiful accommodation in historic Stratford-upon-Avon, guests can enjoy services at the centre tailored to their individual needs, ranging from adventure, relaxation, fitness and theatre and art gallery visits.
Dr Louise Newson added “The Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre will become a sanctuary for women whose day to day lives are affected by the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. It is a place they can visit knowing they are being listened to. They can share their experiences and leave feeling more positive, upbeat and better equipped to deal with their changing bodies.”
