UK bans microbeads in beauty products in bid to cut plastic in oceans

January 10, 2018

Tipper Lewis, Herbalist and head of training at Neal’s Yard Remedies, said: “We think the ban is absolutely fantastic.

“We use all sorts of things instead of plastic; rosehip seed powder which we can use for facial products, we’ve got pumice powder which we use in body products, it’s a bit more exfoliating… and we’ve got ground rice powder which we use in our facial scrubs as well.

“The benefits of these is they’re all biodegradable so they break down in the oceans, they don’t get into the food chains and we don’t end up eating them.”

What is Craniosacral Therapy? An introduction by Beverly Katz our newest therapist

December 5, 2017

There’s a lot of science behind Craniosacral Therapy and there’s an appreciation of the expressions and movements of health and the subtle rhythms produced by fluid fluctuations etc.

However more importantly, there is also the understanding that when we touch someone, we aren’t just touching a body with its separate parts.

We are touching a living organism that is whole, intelligent, complex, multi layered and full of hopes, dreams and memories .

The body is wired to respond to touch.

We know that babies thrive when held and studies show that stress-associated cortisol production decreases in clinical trials where “therapeutic touch” is used.

The combination of the type of touch and the practitioners calm, centred presence, skills and knowledge create an

environment where the body feels safe. Fight or flight mode down regulates and resources are freed up to attend to returning the body back to a state of balanced, connected wholeness.

During a Cranial session there is often a change in the way the brain experiences the body. The skilled practitioner can help to amplify the client’s own felt-sense. With that awareness comes choice, the body can choose to let go of tensions that were previously unnoticed and the nervous system can remap and experience the body in a more complete and embodied way.

 

Who can benefit from Craniosacral Therapy?

Anyone who is interested in deepening into an experience of embodiment and wanting to feel…

¥ more energy and resilience

¥ an improvement in symptoms

¥ less physical pain

¥ an increase in vitality and well-being

¥ calmness and peace

¥ more mental clarity

¥ a renewed sense of direction and purpose

¥ awareness of unhelpful behavioural patterns

EVOLVING OLD WISDOM FOR MODERN TIMES

November 7, 2016
carla-with-arms-in-airOn Monday mornings you could do worse that start the week with a treatment from our experienced therapist Carla Hanreck.
Carla qualified over 16 years ago in Shiatsu (Japanese and Chinese acupressure), then in  the Bowen Technique from the European College of Bowen Studies and finally 3 years ago in Eden Energy Medicine, one of the very first to receive this training in the UK.
As everyone’s energy is as unique as their thumb print, so treatments are adapted to everyone’s unique set of circumstances.  And this is what Carla aims to do for everyone by bringing the most appropriate aspects to the fore from each therapy to blend a recipe for health and vitality for continued, collaborative health.
Treatments are received through your clothing – they are not an oil-based style of massage.
Guys who never would go for a `massage’ particularly like Carla’s treatments as they focus on the origin and resolution of the body’s discomfort – be it from sports, gardening or work. 
She has a real interest in working in collaboration with people for whom their discomfort is classified as `chronic’ : joint pains, disturbed sleep patterns, hormone related symptoms, and others all for which the prescription is often pain killers and being told they will just have to live with it.
The aim is always to bring renewed harmony to a tired body; fresh vitality to a weary mind and a new bounce to a sagging spirit.
Once You start to see your body– which like a car or a machine – has electrics and plumbing,  but unlike a machine is then wrapped in an energy system possessed of a deep intelligence just wanting to get you to health, then you will see how keeping those energies flowing leads to vibrant harmony that in turn fosters good health and happiness.  It often is not true that we `don’t have any energy`;  rather what energy we have is just stuck somewhere – just like an airlock in hose. Find the airlock, see things move! What energy frequency are you today?
