    Neuromuscular Reeducationsm Shoulder Workshop

    Neuromuscular Reeducationsm (NMRsm) is a stand-alone hands-on technique for the evaluation and functional treatment of over 90% of the soft tissue injuries you will see in practice. Judith Townshend will show you how to use NMRsm to get dramatic and lasting results.

    Judith is a chiropractor with four years’ experience using NMRsm. She also teaches NMRsm seminars in the UK alongside Dr Peter J Levy, D.C. from California, U.S.A. who developed the technique. By utilising this technique, Judith is able to offer 'no improvement, no fee' appointments to her clients.

    This workshop will be applicable to massage and sports therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists and other soft-tissue therapists. With a good level of anatomical knowledge, the technique is easy to learn and competently practice on clients. The workshop also provides an insight into the potential results that NMRsm can produce for more areas of the body. www.judithtownshend.co.uk

    Nicky Clinch
    Certified Macrobiotic Nutritionist, Counsellor and Chef

    Food trends vs food fads 

    In this day and age it seems that food trends are everywhere. Unlike 15 years ago when I first began changing my diet, it has become the norm to walk into any café, restaurant or open a magazine and see the next answer to all our health and well being problems. But with so many different promises and so many food trends being sold as the next ultimate answer, what is anyone even meant to believe any more?
    During this talk, Nicky will be challenging the concept of Food Trends. Blasting the belief that there is one perfect diet for everyone. Instead she will be teaching that a balanced healthy relationship to food, our bodies and the environment we live in is one that will feed our health and wellbeing sustainably throughout our entire life.

    A functional and herbal approach to Acne

    Identifying the driving factors in an acute or chronic acne case can be very challenging to the practitioner and to the client. In order to make a confident decision on how to go about this condition therapeutically I will discuss the different presentations of acne (vulgaris in particular) and how to assess which organs or organ systems they are linked with. Once identified these organs require most attention and support.

    There are many herbs and spices which can be used to combat acne. I will focus on the key herbs that can be used safely for internal and topical use and are specific to the different types of spots. Certain spices will soothe, others are known to likely initiate a healing crisis which should be used with care and discussed with the client.

    A functional and herbal approach to Acne can improve therapy outcome and client compliance, and provide solutions for dealing with acute and chronic cases.

Chris’s approach is totally unique: Achieving optimal wellness requires a combination of dietary and lifestyle modifications. With an emphasis on Yoga, breath work and mind training, Chris James will discuss how clear skin, natural health and happiness comes from the inside out!

    Chris James trained, lived and practised in India, in Rishikesh and at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. In 2000 he was randomly assaulted and had his neck broken and dislocated at #c2, #c3 and #c4, sustaining injuries similar to the late Christopher Reeve. To recover, he used the yoga practices that he had discovered in India; understanding first hand how powerful yogic teachings could be, his 360 degree natural solution to achieving optimum levels of wellness year round was born out of that.

    This workshop is perfect for anybody working in the health and nutrition industry and those interested in learning more about the power Mind Body Cleanse.
