Harmony in Health workshop in London

Thursday, 5 March 2020, All day
The College of Medicine is pleased to announce a ‘Harmony in Health’ event run by Dr Eleni Tsiompanou.

All Nature is one! Everything is connected and interdependent, as ecologists have shown us. Nothing exists in isolation.
What does interconnectedness and interdependence mean for us?
How are we influenced by what happens every day around us?
How can we communicate with others in a harmonious way, influence them positively and manage their effect on us?
We need to look inside and get to know ourselves, not just as body but also as mind, emotions and spirit. How can these parts be connected and work together in a balanced way? For us, the most complex of organisms, when we are out of balance we become more vulnerable and susceptible to illness. Equally the way we connect with our communities and with Nature can lead to either harmony and health, or to disharmony and dis-ease.

Join the Harmony in Health workshop on Thursday the 5th of March at 7:30pm in Central London, to explore in a theoretical but also, more significantly, in a practical way.

Is our approach to gut health wrong?

We are part of a complex, symbiotic biological ecosystem and have co-evolved to survive within it - 'rooted' into our biological environment.

Chris zooms in on our key mediating 'biological interface', the gut, particularly the microbiome. Are we in danger of being too specific about gut pathogens, and should we reframe our approach to a more ecological one, that takes account of co-evolution and co-metabolism?

Is SIBO a false diagnosis in search of a population?

This seminar provides both an introduction to primitive reflexes and a refresher for those not testing them regularly. Darren will explain what they are, at what order and what age each should be present and absent, along with the developmental and clinical relevance of each reflex being retained. This is useful for many of the adult population in your practice; you may be surprised to find so many of your more complex patients have retained reflexes that can impact their recovery. There will be practical sessions in which you can learn how to test retained reflexes and various rehabilitation exercises to resolve or integrate them. Research concerning outcomes will be presented. Clinical gems will include complementing the rehabilitation session with manual therapy. There will also be a Q & A session. Red and yellow flags will be covered throughout the day along with an overview of how other professions manage these reflexes.

Dr Jean-Claude Guimberteau - producer of Strolling Under the Skin and other videos / author of Architecture of Human Fascia / surgeon / explorer of fascia and observer of some of its extraordinary properties... although I had seen the video and read (most of!) the book, hearing him speak at Beyond the Dura in Florida was mind-blowing. So I asked him to come and present to us, and he agreed!

Prof. Roxana Carare - one of the UK's leading researchers in cerebrospinal fluid and lymph flow in the brain.... Some of you have heard me mention the stroke of luck through which I have come to know her, and how excited I am to hear her take on the overall current scientific understanding of fluid flow in the space we think of as our cranio sacral system...

Avadhan Larson - one of our senior Upledger Institute International teachers will speak some more about different ways trauma can show up on the table and how we can work with it with the amazing set of tools CST offers us...

Thomas Rasmussen - will bring a follow up to last times presentation as to where the research on demonstrating the existance of the rhythm itself has got to....


So SAVE THE DATE - go on, DO IT NOW....

And keep an eye out for more emails about the speakers, their topics and all sorts of other irresistible reasons why you will want to join us.... we really look forward to seeing you there!
