Editor's welcome: October 2016

Having previously used this space to celebrate the successes of Team GB in Rio, I feel I must now shout even louder in order to acknowledge the "magnificent performance of Paralympics GB" (not my words, the words of the Queen, no less). The disabled athletes (a misnomer in this context) were able to win 80 more medals than their able-bodied counterparts and, to continue the Queen's words, the success "reflects the talent and commitment of the athletes." Her Majesty's remarks echo the themes of dedication and motivation about which I also waxed lyrical last month. Themes which ultimately inspired a comparison with the behind-the-scenes work of those who organise and stage our local community events. more.

Pain Relief Clinic

I am a holistic therapist specialising in pain relief using two very effective methods: bio-feedback and posture therapy. Usually no more than 5 sessions are needed. I am particularly good at healing sciatica, slipped discs, all kinds of back and shoulder pain, hip and knee pain. The bio-feedback tools I use strengthening the immune system and get rid of stress and various inflammations and infections including skin rashes such as eczema. I also do lymph drainage and fertility treatment and have healed gynaecological issues such as cysts and fibroids. People suffering from Autism make great improvement with bio-feedback.
