Did you know that current scientific research highlights the importance of the mind and body connection in achieving good health?
Our health seminars are designed to educate students on the reasons why stress and confusion occur. We provide practical self-help tools which alleviate stress and tension and create healthy lifestyles.
Seminar 1 – The Modern Benefits of Ancient Systems
In today’s multicultural society, ancient exercise practices such as Massage, Tai Chi/Chi Gong, Meditation/Mindfulness and Traditional Martial Arts/Self Defence are being recognised for enhancing fitness of the mind and body, helping to relieve stress and increase the functioning of the immune system.
Our seminars include the value and relevance of these ancient systems, helping students gain an understanding of the purpose and benefits of meditation, the flow of chi (or energy) in our bodies, how we are affected by the relationships with our environment, the five elements (fire, water, metal, wood and earth), the changes of the seasons, and our diet.
Seminars offer students simple but effective methods of applying these ancient practices in their daily lives. We explain how they can greatly enhance physical and emotional health, confidence, lifestyle and wellbeing.
Seminar 2 – Menstrual Health Education
We educate women about the physiological, emotional and psychological impact of their menstrual cycle. We explain what is normal and what is not, offering self-management techniques on how to connect with their natural rhythm whilst improving their overall health and quality of life.
It is particularly relevant for young women who are approaching their first menstruation;
for teenagers who are learning how to cope with menstruation;
and for any women who is experiencing difficulties with her cycle.
Seminar 3 – Understanding Endometriosis
This seminar explains the complexities of endometriosis, a common debilitating disorder that affects up to 15% of women and is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain and infertility.
Using the latest research, we educate women about the full range of symptoms of endometriosis and the conventional and complimentary approaches to treatment and management of symptoms. We provide information on the emotional impact of the disorder on women’s lives and the support services available for women and families.
This seminar is particularly relevant for teenagers in secondary schools, school nurses and health care workers, as research shows that although 80% of women with endometriosis experience severe period pain in their teens, it takes an average of 10 years to have the condition diagnosed.
The lack of general awareness, along with the delays in diagnosis, puts many women at risk of increased symptom severity and infertility which can have devastating consequences on their quality of life.
