Carlisle Therapies was established by Ruth Irving in 2012 as a base for her thriving acupuncture and massage clinic.  In January 2019 she expanded this bespoke holistic centre into the 2nd storey of this Georgian townhouse.  Carlisle Therapies comprises 5 consultation rooms - of which 2 are suitable for small group mat work (and host our busy yoga timetable).  These rooms are available for hire.

The centre is conveniently located in the heart of Carlisle city at 34 Lowther Street, CA3 8DH. It is just a stone's throw from Carlisle bus station, a few minutes’ walk from Carlisle train station and near main car parking sites.

Since 2012 Ruth has steadily built a team of experienced, professional and dedicated natural health care practitioners offering a broad range of complementary and alternative therapies. Some live locally, many travel to Carlisle Therapies to hold their weekly or monthly classes and/or workshops. All are self-employed and dedicated to promoting natural healthy-living choices, wellbeing and mind-body balance.

People come to Carlisle Therapies for many reasons:

• to unwind and relax – enjoy a massage, practice meditation
• to relieve muscular aches & pains – acupuncture, massage
• with a sports injury – aid recovery, improve performance with acupuncture &/or massage, sports therapy services
• when pregnant – pregnancy yoga, hypnobirthing, pregnancy massage and acupuncture
• to join a regular yoga or pilates class.

Whatever the reason, people enjoy visiting the centre. Often people come for a treatment and join a regular class – or vice versa. Our consultation rooms are tranquil, safe and have ample natural light.

Our first and second floor meeting rooms/studios host our busy timetable of popular weekly yoga classes and weekend workshops which focus on self-development and wellbeing. For a list of upcoming classes and workshops see our Event Diary.
