Introducing Complementary Therapies

This series of mini workshops explores Complementary Therapies and their uses.

The workshops are ideal for those who want to use therapies in their day to day life but do not want to do a full professional course.  It also provides information and insight for those who may be considering a full time diploma but would like to explore choices of therapy and try out techniques first - a great opportunity at just £20 per workshop!

See below for details of how you can attend up to two workshops FREE OF CHARGE.

The workshops are designed to be relaxed, fun and informative.  Participants will have the chance to both try out and receive mini treatments from each discipline covered and will have a clear understanding of how they can use the simple techniques themselves and with family.

Every session will include a little theory followed by demonstrations and participant practice.
