Ashdown Psychology Services and Spring Physio are coming together to host a holistic mind and body workshop. We will look at what it means to be physically and emotionally ‘well’, and provide tips and techniques that you can use in your everyday life to optimise your wellbeing.
We will cover areas including:
what is emotional and physical wellbeing
stress and how it impacts on our bodies and minds
the role of hormones
sleep and diet and how they influence our wellbeing
strategies for managing stress
positive psychology and how you can use these ideas to enhance your daily life
The second part of the workshop will be a practical session where you will learn to release common "hotspot" areas of the body. These are areas that tend to become tense and painful when we are stressed. You will also learn stretches and self release techniques to improve your breathing, posture and overall wellbeing.
The workshop will be hosted by Dr Emma Stevens, a highly experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Claire Brodie, a Chartered Physiotherapist specialising in Musculoskeletal and Women's Health Services.
Kit required: Please bring a pillow/cushion if you would like to (for your own comfort when lying down), and a yoga mat if you have one. A screening form will be sent to you prior to the workshop. This is to ensure that the practical element of the workshop is suitable for you.
