Carers’ Wellbeing Day – 9th October 2014 held at Together Your Way, St Leonards on Sea

The attached hand out was written by Sarah Lillington. As relevant today as it was 6 years ago.

“In Andy and Sarah’s expert hands for the day we learnt how to breathe well, we were shown some therapeutic massage techniques we can use safely ourselves and practised these in pairs. There was a talk about the benefits of essential oils and we had a go at hand massage using a special balm which had been made freshly for the session. Sarah also led us through a guided visualisation and everyone left with a Lemon Balm plant, an essential oil, a sleep well CD and a bag full of useful hand-outs and information.”
