FHT Local Support Group Co-ordinators Meeting, CAMexpo and Training Workshops

Weekend before last (5th and 6th October) I was funded by The Federation of Holistic Therapists for a trip down to London for a meeting with other Local Support Group co-ordinators from around the UK. What a lovely bunch my fellow co-ordinators are, was lovely to meet them.

Plus what a great opportunity to hear from our professional organisation on their plans for the future, and to feedback to them what we would like to see happening in the FHT and in our growing network of Local Support Groups. As of last week we now have 108 groups which really makes us the largest network of its kind in the UK and probably Europe as well!

Here I am (front left) at dinner with other Local Support Group Co-ordinators.

More info about our local group - which is open to anyone interested in holistic health and wellbeing - at FHT Lancaster LSG. We got treated to travel, a healthy lunch, a lovely dinner (biggest helping of tiramisu I have ever seen!), and accommodation, and our meeting was timed to coincide with...

CAMexpo 2013

The UK’s only dedicated event for complementary, natural and integrated healthcare. 

I made the most of the opportunity to attend on the Sunday and booked myself on 4 workshops:

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction – Assessment and treatment for the massage therapist
Trigger point therapy for low back pain 
Being a massage therapist – It’s a lifestyle – not a job!
Introduction to Aromatherapy for Pregnancy
