Workshop 5. Child Weight Management

Obesity among children is on the increase, triggering a whole range of health problems. We also know what a sensitive subject weight can be.

Young people are increasingly suffering from serious illnesses and conditions related to obesity – including asthma, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, gallstones and high blood pressure. Being obese can also have a serious impact on children’s self-esteem and cause depression as well as social isolation.

Learning how to eat healthily is a skill and needs teaching. Most overweight children do not lose weight without adult support. The important steps for you to undertake are:

Step 1: Act early- the earlier you can make changes to your child’s diet and lifestyle, the better chance of success you have.

Step 2: Don’t panic, talk about it. The easiest way to make something into a big issue is to have a ‘big talk’ about it. Seek help from a qualified dietitian, explain your concerns and ask for a practical and sensible advise.

From this workshop you will learn what you can do to help your child live a healthier and happier lifestyle.

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?

Through Nutrition to A Healthier & Happier You

October 27, 2016

8th – Food Sensitivities

22nd – Menopause Nutrition

Our workshops will cover some of the most common health issues affecting the life quality of millions of people around the world.

The workshop on the 8th will be focused specifically on certain food sensitivities to the most common allergens such as gluten and diary. You will learn how to avoid the allergens while shopping, eating out and cooking.  You will be able to expand your knowledge on cooking and baking with gluten free grains and flours and dairy alternatives, and also which grains are best for nutrients when following gluten free and dairy free diet. I will share with you my secrets, such as how to make ready in half an hour gluten free soda bread, what’s the easiest way of making your own almond milk which will be full of nutrients and flavour, and many more other very useful tips like that. I will teach you some of the best dietary tricks that will allow you have completely balanced and nutritionally complete diet that you will enjoy.

Our last workshop on 22nd is directed to all women suffering from hormonal imbalances and menopause. Physical and emotional symptoms caused by the hormonal changes can be really unpleasant and hard to cope with. There is a lot of evidence showing that maintaining a healthy weight and staying fit can improve some menopausal symptoms and release the tension associated with it. Moreover, by eating specific foods containing plant-derived oestrogens, called phytoestrogens,  you can significantly improve the symptoms such as hot flashes,depression, irritability & low energy levels. You will learn how to find the best food sources of phytoestrogens and how to incorporate them in your diet. I will also share some of my best cooking tips on how to make them delicious and full of flavour.
