About Us

Sunrise is a family-owned independent health store and complementary therapy centre which has held a high street presence in Hockley, Essex for over 30 years.

Jane Bell is a Registered Osteopath and Acupuncturist by trade. Her qualifications and experience afford her an in-depth knowledge of the systems of the human body and how they interact in both health and disease states. Originally a graduate in the Environmental Sciences, she has a comprehensive understanding of how our surroundings, agricultural methods and food distribution practices influence both our well-being and our planet. Committed to environmentally responsible commerce, Jane assures you that our premises are supplied with 100% renewable energy and that our food packaging is from natural, biodegradable sources wherever possible. With a fantastic, motivated and knowledgeable team on both the shop floor and in the therapy rooms, she is confident in Sunrise's position as a local pioneer for the promotion of healthy and sustainable lifestyles.

The range of products and services that we offer remains unique in the Southend, Rayleigh, Rochford and Hockley area. We are committed to affordability while not compromising on quality and all of our therapists are highly qualified, experienced, and insured.

Sunrise is situated in the centre of Hockley and there is FREE PARKING for 20 minutes in the Co-op car park behind our premises (£1 for up to an hour). We are easily accessible by public transport. Hockley train station is just a 5 minute walk away (Southend Victoria-London Liverpool Street line), and buses 7, 8, 18 and 407 (Southend, Rayleigh, Rochford, Hawkwell, Ashingdon and Basildon) stop just outside. Our shop is all on the ground floor level and we are wheelchair friendly.
