About The Winchester Practice

Dr David Owen, founder of The Natural Practice, opened the Winchester medical practice in 1982. The Winchester practice is the ‘Head Office’ of the group and home to The Natural Practice Dispensary. They provide alternative medicine in a variety of therapies, some natural, to suit the individual. Twelve alternative medical practitioners are based here, seeing patients five days a week in a beautiful converted old flint farmhouse, based in the centre of Winchester, conveniently close to the railway station and main access roads.
