September is World-Wide Dementia Awareness Month
Some Worrying Statistics
• There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This will soar to 2 million by 2051.
• 225,000 will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes
• 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia.
• 70 per cent of people in care homes have dementia or severe memory problems.
• There are over 40,000 people under 65 with dementia in the UK.
• More than 25,000 people from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups in the UK are affected.
How does it affect the person and those close to them?
Dementia is often hidden away, not spoken about, or ignored at a time when the person living with dementia and their family carer’s are most in need of support within their families, friendship groups and communities.
The social stigma is the consequence of a lack of knowledge about dementia and it can have numerous long- and short-term effects, including:
• Dehumanisation of the person with dementia
• Strain within families and friendships
• A lack of sufficient care for people with dementia and their carers
• A lower rate of diagnosis of dementia
• Delayed diagnosis and support
Ten Early Symptoms To Look Out For
1. Memory loss
2. Difficulty in performing everyday tasks
3. Problems with language
4. Disorientation to time and place
5. Poor or decreased judgment
6. Problems with keeping track of things
7. Misplacing things
8. Changes in mood or behaviour
9. Changes in personality
10 Loss of initiative
Things that you can do to help yourself avoid dementia and encourage people with dementia to do
1 Good nutrition
2 Regular Exercise
3 Optimised Vitamin D Levels
4 Optimised Sleep
5 Stress Reduction and management
6 Don’t smoke
7 Reduce alcohol consumption
8 Brain Training – there are lots of brain training games available nowadays
One case in particular stands out: The gentleman's wife brought him along to see me to help with his posture. With dementia it is common for the posture to deteriorate, as people tend to become withdrawn and hunched.
After just one treatment, the patient was standing straighter, holding his head higher and quite remarkably wanting to dance! We saw a huge improvement from his improved posture to his ability to move. He continued with a few more treatments before moving abroad and his wife was absolutely delighted that his sleeping improved and he was able to eat again as his digestion was so much better. The treatments helped with his breathing which in turn helped his anxiety levels to drop. The Bowen Technique helps with posture and breathing which is fundamental to overall health
I am offering 10% off treatments to anyone with dementia and their family, friends and carers during September

Bowen Therapy Bracknell
My main base is in Bracknell now at The Wellness Centre which is in Moss End Village. I love treating here. It is a quiet room tucked away at the back of the centre where you can hear birds singing. Much as I love offering Bowen Therapy in Bracknell, I have become aware that some people are travelling a long way to come and see me which is not ideal after treatment. So over the last month I have been researching other clinics and am pleased to announce that I have found a lovely therapy room in Windsor at Yoga for Harmony, so Windsor Bowen Therapy is definitely available again, a fabulous one in Henley at Bodywise Health Foods, I am back treating at The Lotus Centre so Bourne End Bowen Therapy will be available again. The only availability here is on Saturdays from 3pm. I am back at The Amber Zone offering Bowen therapy in Maidenhead on some Mondays to find out details as to where these clinics are please just CLICK HERE

Keeping Up to Date!
Courses form an important part of my life. It is great to not only find out about new techniques, but just as importantly to refresh old ones!
I have been hearing many good things about McLoughlin Scar Tissue Release and having experienced it first hand I felt I needed to go and learn it. So on Thursday 11th July I went on the course. Fascinating, with a marvelous teacher. I am looking forward to qualifying and practicing it. It is phenomenal to see what happens when old scars are worked on
Fantastic Practitioner Course with Jihan Adem. It is always lovely to mix with other therapists, gain new ideas and refresh.
The Exercise and Rehabilitation Course on Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th November was fascinating and I came away with many new exercises for clients which target specific areas better.
October saw me on the Cranio Bowen Course and I have to say this has to be one of my favourite courses. The teaching and work was just amazing and I am finding that clients love it too!
It was well worth the wait for Jihan Adem's Ultimate Bowen Course on Saturday March 23rd. What a great group of students and fantastic to have Jihan back teaching again. Loving the new work and good to refresh old moves.
The Sports Course held by Paula Essen was amazing. Opened up a totally new way of assessing and treating. The content was suitable not just for sports people but for everyone as we were analyzing the way people move. Fabulous stuff.
A couple of years ago I was advised by my original Bowen Teacher to go on the "Body Mind Workers Course". It was and is simply amazing and over the past three years I have spent a lot of time in Devon on courses learning the techniques. It allows more options particularly for people who have had their chronic pain, depression, anxiety, phobia or addiction for a long time. Bowen Therapy alone is also fantastic but sometimes it just needs the Body Mind Work approach added in.

Julian Baker's Lower Limb Course" was a great weekend in October. It was packed with new moves, but also it was very good to be going back to basics with old moves. A great mix and some fab students to work with
