Bodyworlds Outing – 2nd or 4th May 2019

TRIP TO BODYWORLDS Piccadilly Circus, London – Thursday 2nd May and Saturday 4th May

Adult price – £24.50, student (under 30) £22.50

You don’t have to go to the Dissection workshop or be an FHT member to go the Bodyworlds exhibition. It’s just a good opportunity to join a group outing and enjoy the company and reduced price of a group ticket.

If there’s 10 people interested in going to Bodyworlds on one of the days we’d arrange a group entrance £22 per person.

We all have to enter together but can separate once we’re inside so you can take your time as you prefer. There’s a limit on the size of the bag (30cm x 30cm) you can take in, but there are (shareable) lockers to hire for 3 (I think) hours – bearing in mind we’ll have overnight bags. No photos allowed in the exhibition.

I went to Bodyworlds in London last year (and some of us went in a group to Manchester a few years ago) and it’s an absolutely unique experience and very useful for our learning of the wonders of the human body.

So far three members who are going to the Dissection workshop prefer to go to Bodyworlds on Thursday and three on Saturday – but the three Thursday people are also able to go on Saturday.

It wouldn’t be possible to do both the workshop and Bodyworlds on the same day – just in case you were wondering…..Quite apart from brain overload!!

I’ve set up a What’s App group for these trips so people can liaise with each other to share accommodation and/or travel together.

Please contact us (info@fhtnottinghamlsg.org.uk) if you want to join us on either of the Bodyworlds trips.

Dissection Workshop – 3rd May 2019

DISSECTION WORKSHOP – hosted by Jane Johnson. Friday 3rd May 2019,

1pm – 4pm (meet at 12.45pm for a prompt start

The Hodgekin Building, Guy’s Campus, King’s College, London, SE1 1UL

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So far there’s 6 members who have booked to go on the Dissection workshop.

Afterwards, you are free to enjoy the Gordon Museum which is a large, on-site pathology museum with approximately 8,000 specimens, used by the students studying medicine at Kings College London. The museum is not open to members of the public so this is a fantastic opportunity to explore their pathology collection after your workshop.

The purpose of the dissection workshop is to provide you with an opportunity to see the structures that you massage on a daily basis as a therapist. There is no cutting – all specimens have been prepared for us in advance by the dissection technicians. These are in the form of ‘prosections’ (whole upper or lower limbs or torsos) and ‘pots’ (specimens held in liquid inside glass jars called pots).

**You’ll need to book your own place on the Dissection workshop and your travel/accommodation.

The group is a maximum 30 and over half the places are now booked. There’s a £10 saving for the Early Bird price of £135 – not sure when that expires.

So far three members who are going to the Dissection workshop prefer to go to Bodyworlds on Thursday and three on Saturday – but the three Thursday people are also able to go on Saturday.

It wouldn’t be possible to do both the workshop and Bodyworlds on the same day – just in case you were wondering…..Quite apart from brain overload!!

I’ve set up a What’s App group for these trips so people can liaise with each other to share accommodation and/or travel together. Please let us know (info@fhtnottinghamlsg.org.uk) if you’d like to join this WA group.

Chill Out Zone June 2016

Well, yet again we had rainy weather for the Chill Out Zone at this year’s 10th Anniversary Gate to Southwell Festival from 9th to 12th June!
Nevertheless our 8 therapists were pretty busy and it was an enjoyable weekend – promoting and delivering complimentary therapies….. and bailing out!!

We (and our clients) still kept cosy in our heated gazebos. We welcomed some ‘old’ clients and many new, including some of the artists. We did 49 treatments from free tasters to full hour’s treatments and had some lovely feedback.

Very welcoming and friendly. Excellent for comfort, pace and value. I felt like knots were being undone Thanks for a great experience.”

Very kind, gentle and asked questions making sure I was OK. Tense at first but relaxed and then very relaxed afterwards. Highly recommend CO Zone.”

Therapist was welcoming, helpful, informative – all and more! Treatment relaxing, helpful, very worth it. First fantastic experience – hopefully not the last.”

Very helpful therapist. Great value and comfortable. Had many massages – one of the best.”

“Therapists welcoming, helpful and information. Excellent treatment. Feel like a new woman. Nice drainage! See you next year.” (this from Keith Donnelly, our bailing out ‘friend’ who’s a children’s entertainer and bundle of laughs!!)

The balance of such promotes harmony within us, maintained when ‘Ki’ flows freely throughout the body
