Topic: The Dorn Method with Elke Schneider-Symons

Everyone strains more or less their joints on a daily basis. Unnatural repetitive postures can cause misalignments in the body if ligaments and muscles are not trained and able to withstand the strain. Sitting cross-legged or kneeling affects quite often the length of legs; carrying shopping bags on one side affects the balance of the hip; a whiplash affects the cervical vertebras. Irregularities end up in muscle tension and a nagging pain and if not corrected leads to other health problems. Dorn Method is a safe and gentle way to correct alignment where the client moves the joint while the therapist slides the joint into its natural position. The therapy ends with a nourishing Breuss Spinal massage and self-help exercises for long term maintenance.

Topic: The Balance Procedure with Yvonne Zackim

So why is being in balance so important? When our bodies are balanced both physically and emotionally disease can be healed and we are able to create the life we want rather than the life we don't want. The Balance Procedure activates the Language of the Universe with nine symbol cards each representing a geometric symbol, affirmation, colour, number, zodiac, gemstone, element, planet, chakra, and physical aspect and how when all is Balanced, it is the key to the unconscious mind. TBP is an energy technique that does not require an understanding of theory or precise disciplines but is learnt through practice. Knowing how it works is not as important as doing it. Rather than using the rational, intellectual level of consciousness, it requires the development of flexibility and expansion of consciousness. It is not the procedure itself that bring about the results, they are merely catalysts, it is the life force working inside each person that brings about the transformation.

Topic: Garden Therapy with Jennie Starr

In Britain we are often considered to be a nation of gardeners and we have some of the most interesting, beautiful and varied gardens in the world. Many people describe how they feel that their life is enhanced by their experiences in a park or garden. Using my background as a clinician and gardener my talk will explore how gardens and gardening can influence our physical and mental well being. There is evidence of a variety of different approaches that have been used to promote health through our relationship with our environment. So whether you want to get your muddy clothes on and get down in the garden or whether you want to enjoy the fruits of someone else's labour I will give some suggestions as to how we can help ourselves, and others, to enhance the quality of our lives.

Topic: Chakra Dancing with Julia Karen Richardson

I have been a member of the FHT for 20 years. I am a trained Aromatherapist and  Reflexologist (specialising in fertility and maternity). Qualified also in Indian Head Massage & the original LaStone Therapy & Spiritual Healing. My main passion is Homeopathy and after many years of study was awarded a Licentiate. I am also the student mentor for  'Southern College Of Homeopathy' in Tunbridge Wells. In 1999 I felt it was time to offer people the opportunity to take responsibility for their own health and to explore different approaches to medicine other than those generally being offered. With this in mind I opened The Mews Clinic in the Old Town offering complementary health care. As this was one of the first clinics of its kind to be opened in Eastbourne the practice has always been extremely busy. Homeopathy is controversial and has its share of bad press but it is an amazing form of medicine gentle but powerful and works with your body not against it. Homeopathy has over 200 million worldwide users and has been available for over 200 years. Unbeknown by most it is available on the NHS and our Royal family have used and supported the practice since the 1830's, also reflecting its long standing presence in our health care system. I would like to share my journey into Chakra Dancing with you.
