Byron Bay Alternative Medicine

Byron Bay alternative medicine is a very important part of the culture and helps to make Byron Bay what it is today.

The area's hippie past is still very evident and nowhere more so than in the range of alternative and holistic complementary therapies.

In Byron Bay alternative medicine therapies include everything from acupuncture, astrology, aura reading, ayurvedic medicine, cranial sacral balancing, facial harmony, guided meditation, intuitive readings, kinesiology, kundalini workshops, psychic healing, shamanism, reflexology, reiki, tarot, tibetan eye reading, all types of yoga and all types of massage - to name but a few.

The energy in Byron is very unique and most visitors come away with at least a sense of having felt that positive energy. Some say that Byron Shire lies on a bed of crystal and the crystalline vibration that emanates from that will affect you whether you are aware of it or not - by the way, there is the Crystal Castle located just outside Byron, well worth a visit if you are into crystals, weird and wonderful objects, having your aura read, or you just want to go somewhere to soak up the views, walk around nice gardens and grab a coffee.

Whatever the reason for Byron Bay's magic, you will surely be touched by it. And if you feel you need to relax, unwind, rejuvenate, heal, rebirth or just chill, there will be someone available to help you in every way they can.

Some practices have been around for years and have become a bit of an institution in the local area, while others come and go with only the strongest and most popular surviving in many cases.

You can try and book appointments ahead of schedule before you get here, if you know what you want, or you can choose to wait to see what draws you in after you arrive. It all depends on you and what you are after.
