More folking and LOTS of studying…

I know, I’ve been quiet on here! It’s been a hectic time in many ways, so do bear with me whilst I update things.

Principally it’s been a busy year with extra events. This has taken Radiance to the North York Moors, across to the Wirral, up around north Cumbria, near York, into Leicestershire, and down into Somerset with beautiful weather for, well, most of the time! I have met some wonderful people on these travels, met new and regular festival clients, treated a wide range of conditions to help a variety of singers and musicians, plus taken part in working parties and the odd late night singaround.

I updated my First Aid at Work qualifications in the spring. Always good to be prepared as well as being a requirement of my insurance.

In addition I have been studying for another practitioner qualification, this time a Foot Health Professional Diploma. The theory course is passed with merit I am now waiting to do the clinical training. This will be a useful add-on to the range of treatments that Radiance Wellness can provide, especially for my older clients who suffer with foot problems and would benefit from regular care.

In addition to that I am also training as a Tai Chi for Health Instructor. Tai Chi is something that I started doing as I began my massage career and have found benefit for my personal well-being. As I have recommended this activity to my clients frequently I thought, “Well, why not get more formally trained myself?” The training system I am studying was developed by the Tai Chi expert and Australian GP Dr. Paul Lam and is mainly from the Sun style although he teaches the full range of styles from all the different families of Tai Chi. These have been shown by research to be the most beneficial moves for conditions such as arthritis, diabetes and for musclo-skeleto rehabilitation. The modular course will give me Instructor skills to provide a strong basis for clients to develop their technique and from which they can take their interest further.

As I write this all down and wonder how I’ve fitted it all in – it has been a busy year hasn’t it?
