On 21st September
every year, World Alzheimer’s Day takes place to raise awareness of a condition
that one person develops every 68 seconds.
Alzheimer’s is a form of
dementia where a person sees a gradual decline in their memory, communication
The symptoms get
progressively worse, meaning eventually a sufferer is completely reliant upon their
As our life expectancy
increases, so do the number of cases of Alzheimer’s. It’s estimated that 1 in
85 people will have the disease in 2050.
Alzheimer’s is a terrible
illness regarding the mental decay of a person and it is often presumed that
sufferers don’t feel pain as sharply as those without the disease.
However, this is not the
case. Often, older people with Alzheimer’s aren’t given as many painkillers as
their peers and they find it difficult to talk about their pain, yet that
doesn’t mean it’s not there.
The Bowen Technique is a natural,
drug-free, non-invasive, complementary therapy that can be a gentle yet
effective release of pain.
Rather than 'making' the
body change, Bowen 'asks' the body to recognise the ailment and make the
changes it requires. It works ‘with’ the body as opposed to working ‘against’
During the 30-60 minute
treatment, the Bowen practitioner makes small, rolling, movements over muscles,
tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points on the body, using only
the amount of pressure appropriate for that individual.
No hard-tissue manipulation
or force is needed or used.
Between each set of moves,
the body is allowed to rest for a few minutes, to allow it to absorb the
information it has received and initiate the healing process.
Bowen is also mentally
relaxing and very effective for any stress management and frustration that an
Alzheimer’s sufferer may experience.
If you are caring for somebody with Alzheimer’s and
are interested in how Bowen Therapy can help with physical or mental stress

therapist near you or call 0844 561 7173.

Jude Law was spotted out last week promoting his new film
‘Anna Karenina’ at the Toronto Film Festival with an uncharacteristic full head
of hair. The actor seemed to have reverted back to his ‘glory days’, sporting a
full, curly mop to set off his sharp suit for the festival, only a few months
after being spotted with a more shaven look, and a year on from pictures that
made way for speculation that the star was suffering from hair loss. Law claims
his previous lack of hair was for the film, purposefully shaving his head to
fit his latest role as Anna Karenina’s partner, commenting ‘I think that’s why
I wore a hat for the best part of three months.’
However, with the pictures circulating back in 2011, showing
Jude looking distinctly thin on top, his new-found crowning glory is a somewhat
mystery- did your locks really just miraculously spring up over night, Mr.
We are at the end of Fibromyalgia Awareness Week; a disorder of which awareness seems to be low.
Many people may know the symptoms of Fibromyalgia but may not have heard of the condition.
Fibromyalgia is a widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown. Fibromyalgia means pain in the fibrous tissues in the body.
Most patients with fibromyalgia say that they ache all over and are tired a lot of the time. Their muscles may feel like they have been pulled or overworked and can sometimes twitch and at other times they burn. More women than men are afflicted with fibromyalgia, but it shows up in people of all ages.
The Bowen Technique is a natural, drug-free, non-invasive, complementary therapy that can help with fibromyalgia, chronic pain and fatigue.
Rather than 'making' the body change, Bowen 'asks' the body to recognise the ailment and make the changes it requires.
During the 30-60 minute treatment, the Bowen practitioner makes small, rolling, movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points on the body, using only the amount of pressure appropriate for that individual.
No hard-tissue manipulation or force is needed or used.
Between each set of moves, the body is allowed to rest for a few minutes, to allow it to absorb the information it has received and initiate the healing process.
One client who used Bowen for Fibromyalgia said: “I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2008, after suffering for 2 years with chronic pain and fatigue.
“I had been for massages, which hurt so much afterwards and only really helped for about a week before the pain returned.
“One day I went for a massage and the masseur told me about something called Bowen.
“On my first appointment, I was asked about my health and the list of problems was long… I sounded like a helpless case!
“I didn’t know what to expect, but my first treatment was so relaxing. I was a little unsure how effective it would be as it was so gentle.
“At first I was having treatments every week, then every two, then less frequently, I now go about 6 weeks between treatments.
“After the first few weeks I was amazed that my levels of pain had dropped by about 50%, at first I thought it was maybe a coincidence, and maybe I was just going through a good spell, but almost 10 months later, I swear by it.
“I have taken leaflets to my doctor’s surgery for them to recommend it to other sufferers, and tell everyone how amazing it is.”

A survey carried out by children’s charity, Save the
Children, has found shocking numbers of children in the UK are living in
poverty, urging the government to take drastic action to reverse the
The Survey was carried out on more than 1500 children aged
8-16 in the UK,
and over 5000 parents that fall into the lowest income group, and the results
have made it very clear that children too are shockingly being affected by the
strain of the recession. 61% of the parents assessed admitted that, due to the
recession, they have had to cut back dramatically on family food provisions,
with 19% of parents noting that their children have at times had to go without
basic requirements, such as new shoes, due to their financial strain. 58% of
the children assessed were aware of their parent’s financial struggle, and 43%
strongly agreed that their parents had recently cut back on food.
The results of Save the Children’s survey support the
figures given by the Institute of Fiscal studies, claiming that 3.5 million
children in the UK are currently living in poverty, and this figure is set to
steeply increase. It is clear from these shocking figures that drastic action
is required immediately to ensure that our children have the best possible
start to life.
Save the children are urging the government to intervene in
the issue, indicating that the UK minimum wage for adults is nowhere near
enough to support a family, and are calling for employers to pay a ‘living
wage’ to ensure that every family has enough to provide at least the basic
things, such as food, required to reasonably live off. In addition, it is being
suggested that the government should aim to truly help in eradicating this
problem in the UK by
funding 80% of childcare costs for the lowest income group to ensure that the
strains of childcare do not complicate work and income.
As well as strongly urging government intervention, Save the
Children have started their own fight against UK child poverty. The charity
aims to raise £500 000 to help boost education opportunities for children of
the lowest income groups, and provide basic essentials, such as furniture,
ovens, and toys to their families to ease financial strain and eradicate these
shocking figures of childhood poverty.
