Mindfulness can be described as bringing our awareness to the present moment
Acupuncture to calm the mind
Acupuncture can also be used to create a deep sense of relaxation and well being, in a similar way that meditation does.
We have known for a long time that Acupuncture releases endorphins, our own feel-good body chemistry, but it has a wealth of other calming emotional effects too. We have points to strengthen hope and lift our spirit.
The points for emotional balance can be added to a treatment for a physical complaint, or if preferred they can be the centre of your treatment.
Counselling and coaching techniques combine well with mindfulness, to bring our attention to each moment. When we are fully present we have space to choose how we would like to feel.
I am a fully qualified counsellor (MBACP registered) and trained as a life coach with a selection of tools and approaches.
Aikido seeks to combine balance and movement with focused intention in a similar way to Tai Chi. I spent six years practicing Ki Aikido with both the Ki-Federation and the Ki-Society and was awarded a First Dan Black Belt in 2004.
Listening meditations or walking meditations can easily be integrated into our lives. While living in Bristol I studied Zen Buddhism with Zen Master Dae Gak Sunim, learning Zen mediation and ethics.
Meditation is a simple tool which can be used in many ways in our lives to calm our busy minds and provide a pause.
