Ideal listening for therapists of all kinds illustrating how this structured approach builds news.

Robert practises as a counsellor, in Arbroath and also in Tenerife. Robert previously had his own need for counselling, through addiction issues, and now feels the need to give something back. His recovery, and re-birth was partly achieved through therapy. Robert now uses his person-centred training and blends this with the tools and strategies he learned through his own recovery.

Establishing A Model of Evidence-Informed practice in the NHS: Steps on the Ladder for Reiki Research.

Sign up here!

Conventional medicine is increasingly looking to Integrated Healthcare to enhance patients’ wellbeing and improve quality of life outcomes. Increasing cancer patients’ survival rates in Europe and the USA, is leading to greater attention to outcomes reflecting patients’ well-being.

There is a great opportunity now more than ever before, to systematically evidence the benefits of complementary therapies. Using the benefit of 19 years’ experience designing evidence-informed therapy projects in some of the most complex areas of medicine, I will share with you Full Circle’s road map for sustainable integration, and why it is so worthwhile to get the right foundations in place. I will share with you why I believe this is worth doing alongside some of the hurdles, ultimately giving you a greater sense of the practical steps that are guiding the Connecting Reiki with Medicine project to recognition, integration and a structure for future well designed research projects.

Suzanne originally studied Business, Finance and Law before establishing her own London based design company. Her many commissions included Hollywood actors, Royalty, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal College of Music.

Following a near death experience she founded her charity Full Circle Fund Therapies to develop pioneering projects for hospitals.

She has studied mind-body medicine extensively including Harvard Medical School (Relaxation Response and Positive Psychology). She holds a Masters of Science (Health Sciences) from St George’s Hospital Medical School. She also holds qualifications in Health Psychology, Energy medicine (Plexus bio-energy), Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Reflexology and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). She has a long term practice in Chi Kung and meditation techniques, and a deeply held interest in nutrition.

She set up St George’s Hospital’s first integrated therapy programme in 2001 receiving the St George’s Hospital’s Exceptional Award in 2005. More recently she established Full Circle for cancer patients at Brighton and Sussex University Hospital.

She is an accomplished speaker and has lectured widely including The Nursing Faculty, Kingston University; national conferences (Leukaemia CARE and Royal College of Nursing) and the All-Party-Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare.
She has written a memoir (to be published Winter 2019 by Balboa Press, part of the Hay House Publishing Co, United States.)

Promoting Breast Health – How You as a Therapist Can Help

Sign up here!

Massage is vital to the health and well-being of breast tissue. Lymphatic fluid, which keeps tissue healthy throughout our body, is moved in only three ways, respiration, muscle movement and manual manipulation. As there is no muscle in the breast itself, the fluid must be moved with manual manipulation.

As a massage therapist, you will undoubtedly have someone on your table who has, or has had, some type of breast surgery or who has concerns about their breast health. Being able to address their (and perhaps your own) fears about breast issues is immensely helpful. Having the knowledge and confidence to provide a session for these clients and being able to teach them a simple daily self-breast massage to do at home every day is imperative for any holistic therapist working with this population today.

Sally Spurgeon found herself in a unique position after being diagnosed with breast cancer. A massage therapist for over 30 years, she was able to draw on her personal experience and create The Spurgeon Method™ to help other women with issues that arise after mastectomy surgeries.

In addition to running a busy massage office in Las Vegas, Sally also teaches her method to massage therapists and other healthcare practitioners.
