Workshop 1 (£70.00)

“RELEASING TRAUMATIC MEMORIES WITH ESSENTIAL OILS CAN IMPROVE LIFE FLOW AND BALANCE” Carla Vescovi (BRAZIL)

Traumatic experiences can profoundly affect peoples’ lives. To deal and talk about them in therapy and with therapists can be very difficult and painful. In this workshop, Carla will be presenting the results of more than eight years of research and clinical care handling with release of traumatic memories across different age groups and genders. This pioneering work is conducted with very dilute essential oils, is gentle and non-invasive since the patient doesn’t have to relive/re-experience the pain to obtain release. The results of this approach are remarkable; life flows more easily and softly in all aspects (relationship, career, financial and others).

“ANXIETY: NATUROPATHIC AND TCM AROMATIC THERAPEUTICS” Timothy Miller (USA) & Gabriel Mojay (UK)

Sadly, the average age of onset is just 11 years. With the increasing prevalence of anxiety disorders in the USA and worldwide, efficacious treatment options afforded by natural medicine should be considered: Aromatherapy, and essential oil of Lavandula angustifolia in particular, have demonstrated significant evidence-based anxiolytic benefits.

“AN INTRODUCTION TO SUKSHMA MARMA THERAPY ® - A GENTLE, POWERFUL AYURVEDIC TREATMENT” Jonathan Hinde (UK)

Marma Therapy is the art of treating specific vital points on the body and is one of the greatest healing secrets of Ayurveda. In contrast to the rather robust and vigorous forms of Marma Therapy found in South India, Dr Ernst Schrott, Dr JR Raju and Stefan Schrott (authors of the book Marma Therapy: The Healing power of Ayurvedic Vital point massage) developed a very gentle technique they called Sukshma Marma Therapy ®. Sukshma means gentle or subtle and this treatment creates silence within the targeted marma point. It also re-establishes its proper functioning and regenerates its energy resources.
