Nottingham local group

Jacky and Jayne set up the Nottingham local group in 2007 and are proud to have won the first FHT Coordinator of the Year, in 2015. Jayne has now retired from coordinating and Jacky would be glad to hear from anyone who would like to help her in that role.
Our meetings are open to everyone; FHT members, members of other therapy associations and the general public. Some of the talks lead onto workshops for those wishing to take topics further. We arrange outings and share lifts to therapy conferences such as Holistic Health and Therapy Expo. We also have a Therapy Exchange Register for members who wish to swap treatments.

All talks are in Arnold Library Meeting Room, NG5 7EE on the fourth Tuesday evening of the month – every other month (January, March, May, July, September, November), 7.30-9.30pm. Please arrive at 7.15pm for a prompt 7:30 start.

Topic: Gut, skin and emotional health connection with Corina Lucian

We all know that the skin is our biggest organ doing complex jobs for us, one of which, for example, is elimination through perspiration which cools us down and removes toxins. Corina will explain how a bad gut affects our mood and messes up our skin. Be prepared to learn about our amazing gut and how it influences many aspects of our life. You will develop a better understanding about what it really means when customers suffer from IBS, acne or anxiety. Corina has been a local Skincare Expert since 1993. Since moving to UK, she has been working with an unusually high number of adult cases of acne and rosacea. In her practice she noticed that people improve quicker when they don't have gut problems. As well as her dermatology study, she has in-depth training in anatomy and physiology to cellular level. She has continued to develop her knowledge through medical journals which has given her a much clearer picture of how skin, gut and emotional health fit together.

Topic: Scarwork with Tracey Elliott

Tracey Elliott MMSM, ACMT qualified as a bodyworker at the Midlands School of Massage in 1999, continuing her development at Jing Institute of Advanced Massage and Blend Therapy Training. She trained in Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork in 2015 and completed an advanced course in Breast Cancer in 2019. She is a member of the ScarWork team treating Invictus athletes, and helps breast cancer survivors lead a more comfortable life. Surgery or serious accidents leave people with scar tissue. We often pay little mind to the physical effects a scar can have while focussing on aesthetic appearance of the scar. The superficial scar is the tip of the iceberg - much more happens below the skin. Scars may leave people feeling tight or uncomfortable, or with unrelated pain. Many people feel numbness and disconnection with the scar and surrounding area. Others may not notice any physical discomfort but benefit from this light touch therapy. Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWork is used to ‘reintegrate’ the scar into the facial web, to alleviate tightness and dysfunction, reduce pain, improve the feel of scars and many scars also significantly improve in appearance.  The benefits are profound, no matter the age of the scar.
