The Health Quarter

The Health Quarter opened its doors last month and promises to be a health store with a difference – more of a health boutique combining natural health with some luxury and glamour.

Firstly this bijou store manages to look both fresh and serene with its white fixtures and fittings, pale green decor, potted plants and soft lighting (don’t worry there is plenty of daylight coming through the large windows). There is also a French feel to the place with a few free standing glass fronted cupboards and a small cafe style table and chairs in the corner – tres chic.

The store has opted to sell only brands with high quality nutritional supplements which may be a little bit more expensive but are free of any unnecessary ingredients such as artificial additives, preservatives, flavours, colours etc. They also have a selection of skincare products which are natural and organic, plus an organic cosmetic range so you can look after your body inside and out.

But the main uniqueness to the store is that they have two resident nutritionists, Rosie and Claire, who offer one-to-one consultations on site to help you on the road to a better nutritional way of life.

Before the consultation, they will give you a health questionnaire and a three day food diary to complete which you then return to them at least 24hrs before the session. The consultation usually takes an hour and Rosie or Claire will discuss the findings of the questionnaire and diary and then work out a nutrition programme for you to follow.

Having experienced a little taster of a consultation, I can see how the full hour would be of great benefit. Both Claire and Rosie have a friendly and gentle approach which instantly puts you at ease and you’ll be telling them your life history in no time! Luckily for them my consultation was only 15 minutes.

The initial consultation costs £85 and any follow ups (45mins) cost £70. For privacy, these sessions are conducted before or after opening times.
