The Sangha House is Taunton’s premier health and wellbeing centre, set in a beautiful Grade II listed former convent building. With an emphasis on health being a blend of physical, mental, social and spiritual (not religious; just the awareness of something greater than the individual, be that a faith-based belief system, the kindness of others or nature.) Our motto is “Strength in our differences, comfort where we overlap” and we welcome everyone interested in taking a break from a sometimes unkind world, where we can accept and love all that we are, individually and as a community. We offer a full range of group yoga, Pilates, tai chi, meditation, Somatics and exercise classes, together with a suite of four beautifully appointed treatment rooms offering all forms of holistic massage, specialist facial skincare to help with any issues you may be experiencing as a result of hormonal medication, manicure, pedicure and specialist footcare. For those customers looking for more emotional and consultative therapies, we offer counselling, solution-focussed hypnotherapy, acupuncture, trauma counselling and mentoring. We can offer face to face appointments, or if you feel more comfortable at home, via Zoom as well. Just contact us and we’ll find the very best way for you to feel amazing in your mind, body and spirit, at every stage of your transition.
