Mindfulness practice has powerful implications for our complementary therapy treatments enabling us to slow down and be present, calm busy minds and relax tense bodies, be non-judgemental and compassionate with clear professional boundaries and intentions.
Beyond the obvious health benefits, mindfulness practice creates conditions for treatments that go way beyond the ordinary. Those conditions pave the way for creating a cooperative and highly effective healing relationship with your clients.
Through an intention and desire to pay attention, mindfulness practice trains you to be aware of what’s happening in the present moment, you will be more connected with how your client is feeling and how they are reacting to the treatment. The simple act of drawing your attention to what is really going on can produce far more results than technique administered with no awareness. This is further enhanced by encouraging your clients to be mindful during the session.
The body/mind connection is a powerful doorway to well-being. By offering a safe, sacred, and confidential space for your clients your mindful approach to treatments will project warmth, caring and openness and will enable you to work deeper with intention and focus. This in turn will offer your clients the opportunity to touch the restorative power within as they unwind their busy minds, escape the pace of everyday life and emerge feeling focused, with a sense of renewed positivity.
This hands-on workshop explores how we can use mindfulness techniques to create intention, focus and improved connection for more powerful and truly special treatments as well as empowering clients with effective everyday relaxation tools and techniques.

- A mindful treatment room – setting the scene
