Homeopathy is a branch of medicine with a unique way of prescribing medicines, and its own range of medicines. Homeopathy as a system of medicine was developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician and scholar. Since its inception, homeopathy has spread widely throughout the world. Homeopathy was brought  to New Zealand in 1849.

In recent years there has been an impressive resurgence of homeopathy worldwide and the number of homeopaths who can provide this safe, effective, comprehensive medical care is also rapidly growing.
