Clients with special needs

I’m pleased to announce I’ve been doing massage tasters with clients who have learning difficulties – some have dementia, some have Huntingdon’s Disease and some have Autism.  Some of the work means I go mobile (using public transport as I don’t have a car) – other clients come to my treatment room on the Boulevard with their care support workers as part of a programme of integration into the community. Happily the sessions are going well and I have to say we all have fun together.

Ascension really is meditation made simple

I spent this weekend in the company of a group of lovely ladies, some of whom I knew, some I didn’t, being taught the First Sphere of Ascending – that is the first few Ascension Attitudes, the practice of which I’d been told would help reduce my stress levels, improve my sleep pattern and improve my relationship with myself (among others).  I thought there might be some hippyesque, obscure elements to the weekend but what I actually found was a non-religious weekend full of relaxation, laughter and some very nice food!!  So if you’re looking for a fun way to wind down and relax the mind, check out  and   The ladies who taught our group this weekend in Weston-super-Mare were Kevala on 01934 425 038 ( and Anika who’s based down in Plymouth (  If you’re at all curious, you may like to know they were very patient with me and what sometimes felt like very basic questions, so don’t hesitate to get in touch!!
