Topic: Crystals with Tracey Hale
My name is Tracey and I have a variety of experiences in alternative therapies for example Reflexology, Indian Head, Hot Stone Massage and most recently qualifying in Crystal Therapy both the foundation and certificate course. I am a practising therapist and registered with the Federation of Holistic Therapists. Crystal Therapy is a form of alternative therapy which relies on the use of crystals to promote wellbeing and heal the mind. Crystals are either placed on the body or around the body to help restore balance. Individuals can remain fully clothed, and can either sit in a chair or lie on a bed. The treatments last for approximately 30 minutes, each crystal has relevant properties which will be apparent to the health and wellbeing of the individual. It is a very relaxing treatment and can be used for a variety of reasons.

Topic: Joining the dots - Qi Gong and Acupuncture with Kirsty Evans
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this meeting will take place instead on Facebook Live at 7:30pm on 17 April. To join please click here.
The practices of Qi Gong and Acupuncture date back thousands of years, to a time when they were an integral part of a Chinese culture that understood the importance of living in balance. This talk will examine what Qi is, how it is relevant to Chinese medicine and to general healthcare specifically, Qi Gong. We will look at how the body and the mind can be affected by influencing the Qi, as this is what we work with when we practise Qi Gong or Acupuncture. We will also examine how Acupuncture can affect the body to enable the free flow of Qi, that in turn, can alleviate pain or at advanced levels, re-balance a person’s psychological state. Qi Gong literally means “skill of Qi”, and it uses a system of correct breathing and specific movements that open, and then connect the body. This talk will explain how these exercises can be practised by patients and therapists alike, as a form of exercise or relaxation. Finally I will show you some simple Qi Gong exercises that help to maintain mind and body health by encouraging the free of your Qi. On the night, we will work through some simple Qi Gong exercises – suitable for all ages and abilities! Please wear loose or comfortable clothing.
