Nottingham local support group

Jacky and Jayne set up the Nottingham local support 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: Sarah Spencer – Unlock nature’s secrets to happiness, health and wellbeing – think like a tree

Have you ever stood in a forest and marvelled at how healthy, resilient, and long-lasting the trees are? That’s no accident – millions of years of evolution have laid the foundations, and all living things share common principles that make them successful. In this talk Sarah will explore with the group some of the natural principles. She will share her story and how her courses incorporate the natural wisdom into a design framework that can help us take control of our lives, our health and our wellbeing. Like us, every tree in a woodland is unique, so this process allows us to find our own way, guided by the natural world.

Date: 26 March 2019
Time: 7.30pm
Venue: Arnold Library Meeting Room, NG5 7EE (enter through Leisure Centre)
Topic: Ruth Duncan - Myofascial Release

Ruth lives in Scotland and obviously cannot visit our group in person so for the first time we are arranging a Skype presentation. This is a unique opportunity to learn about Myofascial Release (MFR) techniques from an internationally recognised professional and benefit from her experience and skill. We will have a couch, client and local therapist at our meeting who will 'mirror' Ruth's demonstration of MFR techniques so we can observe at close quarters. Ruth says ‘MFR is not just about learning a technique. It’s about refining your kinesthetic touch, understanding imbalance and dysfunction and then using those skills to create, pain-free, structural integrity’. It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.
