Fit-to-Live Health & Fitness Retreats use naturopathic medicine and the Neurological Integration System to help you optimise your health and fitness.

Whatever your aim: rehabilitate after injury or illness, weight loss, improve health and fight chronic illness, to get prepared for pregnancy, or simply to relax and re-charge.

Set in the beautiful Charente-Maritime countryside of western France, amongst forest, vineyards and sunflower fields, our aim is to enable everyone to have the knowledge and motivation to realise your full potential and perform to your best ability whether that be at work in an office environment, in your hobbies, as a parent or as an athlete.

Integrated Natural Health provides both clinic-based  osteopathic and naturopathic healthcare and residential health retreats in western France.

More About La Gaitrie Retreats

Based in London, Julia Williams is an osteopath and naturopath with a passion for optimising the health potential of every individual.  

Helping patients of all ages with a broad range of conditions from sports injuries, low back pain and headaches to irritable bowel syndrome.

Equine osteopathy utilises the same techniques as for humans.

Active examination of movements and paces, passive mobility of muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Followed by treatment using neuro-integrative techniques (NIS), soft tissue techniques, mobilisations and gentle manipulations.


In case of injury e.g. bruising, sprains, strains to any part of the body:

Remember PRICE

Protect from further injury - stop doing what you were doing!

Rest stay calm, lying down is usually best, wait for any spasm to subside

Ice apply anything cold for 10 minutes

Compression use a support bandage or cushions as needed.

Elevate an injured limb to reduce swelling.

Seek advice if necessary.
