Action Against Alzheimer's Workshop

Programme Details

The programme is aimed at those who want to reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease and those who wanto to optimize their brain and cognitive health.

 The information and handouts provided make it a self-help diet and lifestyle programme. Alzheimer’s Disease starts 10, 20 or even 30 years before diagnosis so making changes now and starting a healthier diet and lifestyle is important.

 Weekly workshops details

Workshop 1, 2 and 3 – MIND - Making Increased Nutritious Diet choices.

Focus on healthy nutritious choices from a wide variety of foods. These weeks help you understand the effects of different foods on brain health both positive and negative. From what foods do we get our nutrients, eating foods in season, the best ways of cooking and storing foods and how we can get the nutrients we need. Looking in more detail at carbohydrates, fats, nutrient-dense foods and how you can implement dietary changes to optimise your cognitive health.

 

Workshop 4 – Gut health – Gut Brain Connection

This workshop helps to understand the significance of gut health and why it is so important to have a good gut/brain connection. I will show you how you can help your gut work in a healthy relationship with your brain. Your whole body achieves better health when the recommended changed are implemented.

Workshop 5 – Stress Reduction

The effects of stress can have adverse effects on your body. Learning what your personal triggers are can be the first step to manage your stress in a different way – this can help minimize the effects on your body and especially your brain health.

 Workshop 6 – Sleep Benefits

There are 5 stages of sleep so understanding what those levels are will help identify what quality of sleep you currently experience. Hormones that affect our sleep pattern are released and we look at how you can improve levels within your body. Understanding the importance of a good night’s sleep is imperative to keep our brains healthy. A number of ways to improve sleep quality will be recommended.

 Workshop 7 – Exercise

Physical Activity and movement has a fabulous effect on cognitive function. It helps to increase the “plasticity” of the brain and to build new neurons in the brain. We will look at the best exercise options and help your to implement a sustainable exercise programme for your body’s ability.

Workshop 8 – Brain Training

This workshop looks at the various ways you can stimulate the various parts of your brain which also has a positive effect on the “plasticity” of your brain. There will be a little segment of this in each week but a bigger emphasis will be on it today as to what brain training exercise would be the best for you. There will also be time for a review of the 8 weeks.

Back, Neck & Shoulder Pain

Do you suffer with Backache, Neck Pain or Sore Restricted Shoulders?  Do you feel stiff when you move, is pain accompanying your every step?  Does it disturb your sleep?  Is your range of movement or motion limited

These are all common problems with back and neck ache and can often be much reduced or eliminated with the help of Clinical Massage and the use of heat using Hot Stones.  Specific techniques and protocols are done to help with the pain.

  • Imagine how great it would be to get up from a sitting position without pain?
  • be able to walk easily?
  • to stretch up to get something down from a high shelf?

The main requirement is that the sessions are fairly close together, the first two work best when a week apart and the the third and fourth may still be required to be weekly or may be stretched to a fortnight depending on how your muscles and tissue feel.

Give me a call to discuss your pain or discompfort and lets see if we can get you moving more easily and freely.  

As one client said recently: "I feel 20 years younger!"

Foot, Leg & Knee Pain

Stiff Joints in the legs such as ankles and knees can make walking quite painful and difficult.  Clients are always amazed how relaxing a foot massage is once they have got over the thought of it might tickle. It doesn't!

Once I have finished with the feet, and let's be honest, feet have a lot to do in carrying our body's around on a daily basis so a little TLC once in a while doesn't go amiss.  However, once I finish with the feet, it is amazing how many people hold quite a lot of tension in their calf muscles.  When these become tight then pain is the end result.  You may suffer with cramp which can create it's own tension. 

This massage is great for anyone but especailly good for people who are on their feet a lot during the day.  Dancers, Teachers, Shop Workers, Builders and if your hobbies also include you using your legs this can really help with those niggling injuries that just won't go away.

If the pain you feel is from tension or stress, then the heat from the hot stones helps to melt it away and the slow work with the myofascial techniques is incredible.  Trigger point work may be a little harsh if it's stress related, and that is one of the reasons it's good to come and see a professional.  Gaining an overall picture of your life and activities gives me the guidelines to what techniques and protocols will be best suited to you. 

Get in touch with me, I'd love to see if I can help.

SOW - Seeds of Wellness - Taster Talk

Come along to my Introduction Talk SOW – Seeds Of Wellness demonstrating how Kinesiology works in the body.  It uses muscle testing to find out where imbalances are and what may be causative factors.

Food Intolerance Testing is a great indicator of this, as foods may be beneficial and energy-giving to the body, or they may be toxic to the body and therefore robbing you of your energy.  It’s not always the foods you think may be the problem are actually the problem.  Food intolerances can be a factor in so many problems in the body, 

·     Negative effect on emotions,

·     Headaches,

·     Digestive: constipation, diarrhoea, bloating & abdominal pain,

·     Joint Pain

·     And much more.

The energy zip-up is a great tool to learn especially if you have people in your life who may drain you. Let’s be honest, we all know one or two of those.  We can be in their company for an hour and we come away feeling absolutely exhausted. I like to call them “Little Energy Suckers” and they can be people we love and who love us.  So the Zip-Up Technique is great for when you know you are meeting up with them.  It can also be used in addition to the Stress Release Technique I will be teaching.  

This is fabulous if you have to go to meetings that you don’t enjoy, have exam stress or other situations. The Stress Release Technique is super easy to do and super effective.  It can be done as often as you like and can be done on anyone, babies, children, adults and the elderly.

And although I am talking about it at the end here, we will also be looking at the muscle that is related energetically to the Brain right at the beginning of the demonstration.  I will be teaching you different points that help with refreshing the brains energy.  Great for afternoon energy dips, meetings, exams, reading, and just for those challenging situations that we all face.

Systematic Kinesiology is like a fusion of East meets West.  The Eastern meridians used in the Chinese Acupuncture system are looked at, as well as the neurolymphatic & neurovascular points founded by Western Doctors.

I look forward to welcoming you and sharing a fun, informative evening with you

Heartspeak: Your Path in University

Heartspeak: Your Path in University

2-part workshop: 25/09 & 9/10 6.30 pm – 8pm

(Please note the first event date, the 25th September, is listed on the start/end dates above but it is a 2 part workshop)

 

Location:  Down to Earth Health, 39 Tower Street, Selkirk, TD7 4LR

 

Upheaval, Doubt, Uncertainty, Fear, Being Good Enough, Keeping Up are all valid emotions & they can get in the way of your new life at university, HeartSpeak is how you can change this.

 

It’s quick to learn, easy to do and can last you your lifetime. Great to learn these tools now and save yourself a load of bother unravelling it later on in life.

 

First of all, no emotion, thought etc. has to be divulged in front of the group, you only think the thoughts. You don’t have to talk about them, during the workshop at all if you don’t want to.

 

Heartspeak is about saying Hi to the emotions, thoughts and feelings that we all have inside. There are a few people in society who don’t have the same emotional connection as the majority of us and they come under the bracket of sociopaths. Hopefully you are not in that select group.

 

The rest of us are emotional, feeling human beings. We may grow up with people saying “there there, don’t cry” or “big boys/girls don’t do that” and as parents that can be a learned response that has come down generations.

 

However, that response can mean that we supress how we are feeling and get used to that. What if you were able to bring up an emotion or feeling and say Hi to it. Allow it to be there and to feel how does it feel, where do you sense it in your body, does it have a colour, does it have a facial expression.

 

Did you know that most feelings can only be felt for a few minutes at a time? And then they change or morph into something else. And it’s at that time, that you can then choose, what it changes into.

 

I will guide you into the “paired beneficial emotion” to bring about a more balanced view of life and it’s many events.

 

You go home with the HeartSpeak hand-out to use on a daily basis so that it becomes a new response or learned way of looking, feeling and responding to life.

 

I have made these two part workshops with a couple of weeks in-between so you can use HeartSpeak and then have a chance to come with questions and practice it again.

Heartspeak: Letting Go & Digestion

Heartspeak: Letting Go & Digestion 

2-part workshop: 28/09 & 12/10  10.30am - 12pm

(Please note the first event date, the 28th September, is listed on the start/end dates above but it is a 2 part workshop)

 

Location:  Down to Earth Health, 39 Tower Street, Selkirk, TD7 4LR

 

Sorting Things, Letting Go, Decision-making are common links with Digestion Complaints. Is this you? 2-Part

 

Being able/unable to sort things out, letting go of stuff, making decisions, knowing what you want, are all valid thoughts and emotions & they can be an issue for someone with digestion problems. HeartSpeak is how you can change this.

 

It’s quick to learn, easy to do and can last you your lifetime. Would you like to feel more relaxed about life and leave that constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, discomfort etc. behind.

 

First of all, no emotion, thought etc. has to be divulged in front of the group, you only think the thoughts. You don’t have to talk about them, during the workshop at all if you don’t want to.

 

Heartspeak is about saying Hi to the emotions, thoughts and feelings that we all have inside. Feelings can be emotional and also physical so dizziness is a feeling, bloating is a feeling etc.  

 

There are a few people in society who don’t have the same emotional connection as the majority of us and they come under the bracket of sociopaths. Hopefully you are not in that select group.

 

Thankfully, the rest of us are emotional, feeling human beings. We may grow up with people saying “there there, don’t cry” or “big boys/girls don’t do that” and as parents this can be a learned response that has come down generations. So we don’t blame anyone for how we are right now.

 

However, that response can mean that we supress how we feel and get used to that. What if you were able to bring up an emotion or feeling and say Hi to it? Allow it to be there and to be aware of it. How does it feel, where do you sense it in your body, does it have a colour, does it have a facial expression.

 

Did you know that most feelings can only be felt for a few minutes at a time? And then they change or morph into something else. And it’s at that time, that you can then choose, what it changes into.

 

I will guide you into the “paired beneficial emotion” to bring about a more balanced view of life and it’s many events.

 

This is all based on Scientific Neurology, its been developed by Dr Anne Jensen who did her doctorate at Oxford and developed HeartSpeak from that.

 

You go home with the HeartSpeak hand-out to use on a daily basis so that it becomes a new response or learned way of looking, feeling and responding to life.
