'Wear a scarf' to stop asthma attacks


Asthma sufferers are being encouraged to wear a scarf over their nose and mouth to prevent asthma attacks this winter.
 
Breathing in cold, damp air can make the airways tighten and trigger an attack in three out of four people, charity Asthma UK says. This can leave people coughing, wheezing and gasping for breath.  
The charity's #Scarfie campaign says "a scarf can save a life" but it's not a replacement for asthma medicines.
 
Four million people with asthma in the UK say that breathing in cold winter air makes their asthma symptoms worse.

Clinic changes in 2018

After nearly 20 years at our location in Station Street, our landlords have informed us that they want to move into our current premises next April, so 2018 will be ringing in the changes for the clinic.

 
We're already working hard to create a smooth transition next Spring and we hope that a move
to new premises will cause minimal disruption to our therapies and classes. We'll keep you posted regarding future developments...

Reiki Level 1 
Certificated Course
2 Sundays:
18th & 25th Feb 2018  
   10.00am-5.00pm  

Tutor: Sue Hall

Reiki Master Susan Hall will be holding a Reiki Level 1 Course over 2 Sundays next Spring.

Sue's classes are friendly and informal, & you'll experience the simple method of how Reiki is performed. Learning Reiki isn't an academic exercise so it's suitable for people of all ages.

During a Reiki treatment, the hands are placed lightly on 12 basic positions on the fully clothed body. The Reiki energy naturally activates and radiates via the palms of the practitioner’s hands. The recipient’s own healing mechanisms draw the right amount of energy wherever needed on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Reiki allows the recipient to enter a state of balance where healing can take place. It's a transformational energy that can be life changing.

On successful completion of the 2 day course, you will receive a Reiki Level 1 Certificate. The course runs from 10.00am to 5.00pm each day and the cost of £150 includes free refreshments throughout the course.

Against the backdrop of modern society where stress and superficiality thrive, the practice of Yoga provides some brief sanity, enabling us to enjoy the experience of aligning our body through releasing postures which give us a deeper experience of
our self, gaining calmness, focus and a sense of inner spaciousness to take back
our lives.

Tai Chi Ch'uan is an ancient form of slow, graceful and rhythmic exercise which originated in China.

Tai Chi is sometimes referred to as 'meditation in movement' or 'swimming in air'. It's unlike any of the 'hard' martial arts which rely on force and speed.
Tai Chi strengthens our internal energy, and allows it to flow more freely through the body. It is gentle and non-violent, though after much practice is an extremely effective form of self defence.

Many of our courses sell out weeks before they start, so in order to avoid disappointment we'd strongly advise reserving your place as early as possible.

Warmest December wishes from us all,
