Woodley Library will host a summer’s evening of alternative therapies and pampering on Monday 17th July. Doors will open at 6.30pm to a packed evening of talks, demonstrations and treatments from a wide range of locally based practitioners and therapists. Tickets are just £3 (available in advance from the library) and the majority of therapists will make no additional charge on the evening (booking essential for some treatments) making this an ideal opportunity to try something new, have your questions answered on a treatment you’ve been thinking about or maybe just having a little “you” time, relaxing with a light refreshment in the courtyard garden.
Let us introduce you to two of our therapists for the Alternative Therapies and Pamper Evening at Woodley Library on Monday July 17.
Anna Suchodolska – Massage Therapist
Anna moved to the Reading area from London 2 years ago and liked it instantly. She has since made new friends and continued networking with people. She enjoys social events, both participating and organising them but also likes spending time walking and contemplating nature. Her cat, Ray, who has been a wonderful companion over many years, has played a significant role in ‘teaching’ her a few tips on relaxation techniques.
Anna initially took her ITEC Level 3 Diploma in Massage to help her husband with his back problems. She was fascinated to discover that following treatment on stressed muscles the response was one of ease on the whole person. She is curious about how the body can sometimes demonstrate its ability to heal itself with very little external influence, believing that massage should in no way be invasive but support the body’s ability for self-healing.
Anna will offer a 15 minute neck, shoulder and back massage in complete privacy (donations will be welcome) and looks forward to meeting you on the evening.
Anna Jones – Body Image Coach
Anna of “Time to Sort it” is one of the fantastic four speakers we have for the evening and is truly one not to miss; she will be taking to the stage at 8pm with her talk, “Boost Your Body Image”
Anna is a woman with a mission – to help long term serial dieters get off the hamster wheel of fresh starts and “Oh no, I’ve blown it again!” She wants to help them realise that life is too short to be stuck in the frustration, disappointment and self-loathing that comes with this “on it, off it” cycle.
Her message is “it is time to accept and respect that amazing body of yours so that you can treat it in a way that it deserves” but does warn that “the by-product of this approach is that you may accidentally release some weight!”
You can find out more about Anna on her website https://timetosortit.com and you will be able to chat to her personally throughout the evening.
