Focus On…Avoiding Ski-ing Injuries

The risk of injury when skiing is actually fairly low, with just 2-3 people per 1000 requiring medical help. Fortunately the rate of skiing injuries has reduced since the 1970s by about 50%, largely due to improvements in ski equipment, slope design and skiing instruction. However, it is important not to become complacent when it comes to skiing; the risk of injury will be dramatically increased without proper preparation, especially for novice skiers.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help You Stop Smoking?

Written by Kathy Richards, Clinical Hypnotherapist Hypnotherapy can help you get to the root of the reasons why you smoke – resulting in a higher success of kicking the habit. Smoking contributes to a long list of health problems and each smoker has a different approach to their smoking habit. There are different types of smokers, for example, the casual smoker – linked perhaps to social or stressful occasions; the moderate smoker – who smokes quite regularly and might find it difficult giving up the habit.

Treating Stress with Acupuncture

Written by Sylvia Shroer, Re-Connect to Health. I have been involved with acupuncture for more than 30 years. I studied craniosacral therapy later, completing a two year professional training in 2013. I first became involved with acupuncture in the 1980s when I saw how it helped a friend suffering with depression, and I made a choice at this stage not to return to study clinical psychology, which I had previously been interested in – and to look at what the East and the Chinese had to offer – with approaches that predated Cartesian Dualism, and the mind body split. I had felt frustrated that the mind and the body were so disconnected with each other in psychology when I studied this in the 1970s.
