Our aim is to go beyond the simple relief of symptoms, which is beneficial in the short term, looking at the underlying causes of the problem. Working with these can lead to longer term relief, or even permanent resolution, as well as helping to improve the quality of your life. We are achieving this by:
•Using natural holistic therapies to enhance the body’s natural self healing abilities.
•Encouraging people to take an active part in improving their health and in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
•Raising awareness of the principles of good health.
•Broadening the range of holistic therapies available in Bentham
•Working in co-operation with other health care professionals.

Stress is a normal and natural part of our lives. According to the dictionary, stress is “a constraining or impelling force”. It is what gives life a zing!
Can you imagine a life without the thrill of a new experience,
or the buzz of a lively debate with friends,
or the excitement of looking forward to a holiday,
or the adrenalin rush of working to a deadline
There are hundreds of things we do in our lives which stimulate us and it is our emotional response to them which determines whether the experience is enjoyable or stressful.
What one person finds exciting, another finds frightening - just think of things like public speaking
or travelling by plane,
or riding a horse.....
And yet we all get stressed at some times in our lives - when the world seems to be conspiring against us and we feel out of control.
What do we do? Does it help? Does it add to the stress?
Is there anything we can do differently?
By the end of the two days, you will be more aware of what causes you to feel stressed and why.
You will have experienced a variety of techniques you can use for yourself (and for others) to help to combat the unhealthy stress that infiltrates our lives.
You will have a CD of your choice from the range of Relaxology and Meditation CD's made by Marie to take away with you.
Completion of this course will gain you one credit in the training programme developed by The International School of Awareness.
