It is really strange, after 14 years of holidaying in
the school holidays, to be back from holiday relaxed and refreshed before the
schools break up!! We have come back from a lovely time in France and now have
the rest of the long hot August stretching in front of us.
So for the whole of August (and the rest of the year)
I am available on Tuesdays in Eastbourne at the Eastbourne Therapy clinic , 16
Lushington road, and Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Blue Room,
22 Clinton place. I look forward to seeing you and helping you and your body
Client of the week is a young athlete who was getting progressively
more anxious. To begin with it was about competing but has grown to the point
where she goes to bed each night looking for something to worry about. We discovered
that the anxiety started two years ago when she fell in a competition. We
unwound that incident using techniques from my Kinesiology toolbox and the
cloud of anxiety she was feeling has stated to recede. I am looking forward to
seeing her again to see how she is progressing.
You may be aware that I have run a couple of Indian
Head Massage workshops this year so far. These have been so well received with
happy and relaxed attendees giving great feedback that I am planning more for
the Autumn. In September I intend to hold another Indian Head Massage workshop
this time on a Tuesday, for October an evening on understanding and reversing
the effects of Seasonal Adjustment Disorder to help make the Autumn brighter
for everyone, and in November a workshop of relaxation techniques for calmness
on the run up to Christmas!!
Whilst I will be letting you know about these and any
other exciting or interesting items in the usual way with e-mails or letters I wanted
to let you know that I have joined the 21 century and got myself a
Facebook page where I post, sometimes as much as twice a week, any news, tips, or
other items which I find interesting. The page is “Ian Kerr Complementary
Practioner” – give it a like.
One of the interesting and exciting things that is
happening to me in early September is that I am riding 100 miles in (hopefully)
7 ½ hours in an organised ride around Sussex. I have never ridden this far in
one day. Since I am going to put my body and mind through this feat of endurance
I thought it would be a waste not to raise a few quid for charity and, as my
wife was treated for cervical cancer early this year, I have chosen Cancer
Research UK and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust to receive the money 50/50. Whilst
we are all aware of the excellent work Cancer Research UK does, Jo’s Trust is a
small charity which offers support and information specifically for women with
a cervical cancer diagnosis. I hope that you might be able to help me reach my
target of £1000 (that’s £10 per mile or 0.27p per pedal stroke). I will be
creating a just giving page or similar early in August and I will let you know
It’s not what it is but how you feel about it.
How you feel about it is driven by what you think
You can change what you think about anything,
therefore you can change how you feel about anything.
