QI GONG

Is an ancient branch of Chinese medicine designed to unblock, free and balance qi (pronounced chi). As a form of gentle exercise, qigong is composed of movements that are typically repeated, strengthening and stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial, and lymph), enhancing balance and proprioception, and improving the awareness of how the body moves through space. A key point in Qi Gong practice is relaxation and deep breathing, both of which are prerequisites to allow Qi to flow.
Qi Gong is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. Even a few minutes of practise can have an invigorating and rejuvenating effect. You learn to project energy from youir hands, voice and eyes to facilitate healing.
Its ability to help in healing a large variety of chronic and acute injuries and illnesses has been the subject of various research programmes led by the Chinese medical authorities.

FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS

Family constellations are a therapeutic approach designed to help reveal the hidden dynamics in a family or relationship in order to address any stressors impacting these relationships and heal them.
A family constellations session typically takes place in a workshop made up of a group of individuals who are not related. Members of the group stand in for family members of the person or couple presenting a difficulty or concern. The person seeking resolution of an issue, who is referred to as the seeker, or the group facilitator chooses these representatives and places them into position as members of the individual's family, also choosing one person to take the place of the seeker in order to complete the family dynamic. The use of other individuals to represent the family is believed to illuminate the disharmony within the family, and the individuals standing in as members of the family are believed to be able to feel and experience the emotions of the person whose role they have taken on. Hellinger, the developer of family constellations, calls this sense of connectedness, which is felt telepathically by members of the group, the morphogenic field. 
Although the representatives speak very little, the sense of knowing believed to result from the process is said to be apparent to all who participate. The seeker watches from the outside to gain new perspective on the situation.
Even when an issue is not fully resolved by the constellation process, the individual who presented the issue may still achieve insight into the issue for which they are seeking help.
Issues Treated with Family Constellations:
Family constellations work is considered most effective in addressing concerns that are systemic in nature. These concerns might include family of origin issues, parent-child relationship difficulties, and intimate relationship challenges. 
It may be used as a potential therapy method for people whom: Are seeking to address negative or harmful relationship patterns. Want to be in a romantic relationship. Are attempting to resolve family entanglements. Want to overcome inner turmoil. Have experienced significant trauma or loss, or are in search of personal and professional success.

MINDFULLNESS

Mindfulness is a way of paying attention, staying present and responding skilfully to what’s happening in our lives. It helps people manage their thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships with awareness and compassion, leading to greater well-being and appreciation, as well as more choice in how to meet challenges. Mindfulness is cultivated by a exploring a range of simple meditation practices and approaches to living, as taught on our courses.
The course teaches you how to cultivate awareness and be less caught up in automatic thoughts, feelings and behaviour patterns. Participants learn exercises of paying attention to the present moment by using techniques like meditation which can transform daily life, including sitting meditation, breath work, body scanning and mindful movement, sometime including yoga stretches.
An extensive body of clinical research has consistently shown that this approach to teaching mindfulness is helpful for working with a wide range of conditions, including reducing stress, optimising well-being, and a decrease in aches and pains. It is now taught widely in healthcare, education, workplaces and other settings.

SEMINAR - JEM AYRES - MY JOURNEY
HEALING FROM CANCER

Come and listen to the lovely inspirational Jem Ayres discuss her healing journey –

“How I healed from Terminal Cancer”.

She discusses how the fear surrounding cancer is very real and very sobering, especially when you're faced with a diagnosis. “When Doctor's and medical practitioners told me differently, I trusted my bodies wisdom which at no stage said I was going to die”.

Through Jem’s journey she explains how she doesn’t believe it's very healthy to allow that fear into your body. “If you feel it rising within you, which it inevitably will, find a way to release that as quickly and effortlessly as possible. Feel it, acknowledge it and let it pass through you”.

 She set about reframing and shifting her focus away from the fear of the disease. She researched and worked with her body, she used holistic methods such as nutrition, diet change, detoxing and adding supplements alongside the medical treatments she was offered to stabilise her.

How working on strengthening her inner core by journaling, meditation, yoga chanting, gratitude practice and prayer, to raise her vibration and energy to that higher than cancer. She will discuss how she worked on her self-belief, from when everything was telling her it was hopeless - too one of absolute happiness to be alive.

Listen how she discusses becoming an empowered patient, by asking lots questions and taking responsibility for her own healing and using the knowledge of all the medical practitioners to enhance that.

She will discuss how after really looking deep within and changing her life to a state of happiness and positive belief – she heard those beautiful words from her oncologist “There is nothing we can detect as disease in your scans"...they were closely followed by 'Whatever you're doing, keep doing it.'  There was the recognition that this outcome was not from medical intervention alone.

Hear Jem discuss all the different tools, treatments, classes, workshops, self-reflection and how working on her self at a deep level, change her life for the better.  Take away what feels right for you, we are all on our own journey to healing in this lifetime…why not start now.

Jem will also be hosting some 1-2-1 coaching sessions at the Low cost clinic during the next few months. Why not book in a session now and learn how to empower your own healing journey.
