I dont think any of our ladies realised quite how powerful our own hands can really be until they came along this week to our members meeting.
Sarah from Cardiff Holistic gave a workshop on reflexology using the reflex points on our hands rather than the more traditional foot treatments. Sarah clearly explained, with the help of a handout, how the nerve endings in our hands directly link to specific areas of the body and pressure applied to the hands can help to alleviate symptoms.
After a detailed and informative explanation, we were given some samples of hand cream, with additional essential oils in them, and were shown how to do a full treatment in the correct order - as a therapist would do. Sarah explained how as well as full treatments which can help identify problems in the body, simple pressure applied as and when to linked areas could help specific complaints such as headaches.
Following this, the traditional tea and cakes (and lovely chocolates!) were served and members were asked to vote on their preferred option for our own logo, designed by one of our members Gemma.
Next month, we will be creating our very own sugarcraft decorations for Christmas Cakes! See you then!
