21 Sqn Families Day : Saturday 17th March

Hypnotherapy, Reiki & Indian Head Massage

Helen Brucher Dip. Hyp. CS  is an experienced and qualified Hypnotherapist. Using her channeling techniques Helen will find the root cause to a clients problem and will be able to tell when a particular behaviour pattern first began and explain the reason behind it.
Helen also offer Indian Head Massage and Reiki.

Indian Head Massage stimulates the lymph glands draining toxins and boosting the immune system. It can relieve headaches and help with stress, anxiety and depression also improving the circulation in the body as well as enhancing hairs condition and promoting new hair growth. It can also relieve eye strain, relax muscular tension and help with general health and well being.  Indian Head Massage starts at the shoulder blades, working up to the shoulders, neck and on to the head. There are different techniques used some are quite vigorous whilst others are lighter and more gentle all complementing one another to provide a very relaxing treatment.
Reiki is a wonderful relaxing treatment and it works with the energy chakras of the body. Reiki is good for aligning mind and body which we can sometimes feel become out of balance with each other.  Reiki is very good for releasing physical stress and tension as well as emotional trauma.

Helen came to Coffee Morning and gave FREE taster sessions of Indian Head Massage – she was very well received by our ladies who highly recommend her services

Monday 26th March

Boydell's Dairy Farm

Boydells Dairy Farm is a small working farm, open to the public and specialises in sheep milking. Set in the beautiful North Essex countryside near WETHERSFEILD, it provides a fun-packed and educational visit for children and adults alike.
Most of the usual farm animals are to be found here, but, unlike other open farms, we give you a guided tour with lots of hands-on stuff. Try your hand at milking a cow, feeding hens, riding a donkey cart or outstaring a llama. But the chief part of your visit will be the sheep milking which takes place in a modern "rapid exit" parlour, milking batches of 18 ewes at a time.
RE-OPENS Saturday 1st April 2018
For directions click here
Times: 2.00 – 5.00 p.m. In 2018 we will be open every Fri/Sat/Sun afternoon in term time and every afternoon in School Holidays from April 1st to September 3rd , BUT CLOSED ON GOOD FRIDAY (30 March). Watch out for extended hours (1000 - 1700) during the Easter holidays
