The TLC Clinic: A low-cost drop-in clinic for those on little or no income

The TLC Drop-in Clinic launched in Lancaster in January 2018 and since then over 100 people living with little or no income have received treatments. The clinic is run by a team of professional therapists who are all fully insured and in private practice. There are a variety of therapies such as sports massage, reiki, back massage, Indian head massage, reflexology, Indian head massage, Access Bars, homeopathy and sound healing.

“I felt so nurtured that I imagine that’s how my infant must feel when being held. I will leave here with a healthier heart and mind, knowing a place as wonderful as this exists.”

“Everyone is amazing, really friendly and helpful. I was given information before treatment and advice afterwards. I feel now as though I could sleep really well”.

All the therapies help to:

  • induce a sense of wellbeing
  • encourage deep relaxation and help you to have a calm mind
  • improve quality of sleep

The clinic is run on a drop in basis so no appointment is necessary. You will be greeted by a host who will welcome you and let you know about which therapies are on offer and help you make the right choice for you. You are more than welcome to return to the clinic how ever many times you need.
