The Wellhaven Clinic was opened in 2016 in order to provide natural health care to the population of Ledbury and its environs. Offering a variety of different treatments in an accessible manner: both geographically and verbally. Some natural health practices might seem a little esoteric but we work hard to ensure that all dialogue at the Wellhaven Clinic is in plain English and we take an active interest in modern research into the services we offer.

Sally Cartmell - Director and Wellness Consultant

Sally grew up a short distance from Ledbury, in the village of Hasfield. She attended Newent school and having lived in London and Sydney made Ledbury her home in 2013. She’s known as a big animal lover and has a cat, 2 pet sheep and a collection of chickens. When she’s not working in the clinic she has another life as a change management consultant, helping companies to adapt to change so she’s no stranger to the pressures of the modern corporate environment.

Having suffered her own health challenges she discovered the power of Five Element Acupuncture in 2007 and promptly enrolled with the College of Traditional Acupuncture to study the art. She graduated in 2010 with a first class honours degree and a Licentiate in Acupuncture. Also in 2007 she completed a Yoga Teacher Training with the Sivananda Yoga centre in Orleans, France. She has a special interest in treating the over 65s, emotional disturbances and stress-related illness. She previously ran a clinic in Tewkesbury.
