Turning Point Training – Courses in Craniosacral Therapy and Homotoxicology

Turning Point Training offers postgraduate courses in Craniosacral Therapy and Homotoxicology. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds both in conventional and holistic disciplines. This allows an exchange of information and experience that enriches the learning experience. Courses are mixture of leading-edge, scientifically based theory and clinical and practical tuition. Students are encouraged to explore and develop their gifts and talents in bringing their unique experience to the disciplines taught. Students are thus empowered.

Small groups help to facilitate this experience. Turning Point teachers are enthusiastic and experienced practicing therapists who keep their knowledge up to date.

The philosophy of Turning Point encompasses the idea that medicine is an art informed by science. We believe that the conventional materialist paradigm is very much out of date and that scientific knowledge has now reached a point where much of holistic medicine can incorporated into a new paradigm.

Turning Point courses introduce the concepts of research and encourage students to critically evaluate current information.

Craniosacral therapy is based on the relation of the relationship between the structure and function of the body and health. Specific, gentle and skilled manipulation can restore the structure-function relationship supporting the patients’ own homeostatic mechanisms. This non-invasive and safe therapy can be used on patients of all ages from the new-born to the elderly.

The Practitioner Course consists of 11 modules over 5 weekends and 20 hours Zoom support days including practical tuition. In addition students have to complete a portfolio of case studies and complete an exam. Practical skills are assessed during the course. This course is recognized by the CMA.

The 2021 course will be held 22 and 23 May, 12 and 13 June, 17 and 18 July, 25 and 26 September and 23 and 24 October.

These courses are led by Jonathan Lawrence

Homotoxicology is based on the idea that disease results from toxic load. In modern life we are subject to toxins from a variety of sources. This has the effect of stressing the immune system leading to ill health. Accurate prescribing can help the body gently detoxify aiding the restoration of homeostasis.

The remedies used are be single potency homeopathic remedies or combinations of remedies to achieve a specific physiological response.

There is access to online training via the Society of Homotoxicology, UK.

We provide further courses in Electro Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV) for suitably qualified students. This involves electro-acupuncture assessment of meridans and clinical application of findings. Training is via small tutorial groups led by Rosemary Lawrence. The next course will be held in September 2021.

Insurance – Quick Thoughts and Reminders – Balens Ltd

What Information do you need to Retain for Insurance Purposes?

We are often asked what information is necessary for a practitioner to retain, in order to meet the record keeping requirement of their insurance contract.  The purpose of these records is to provide a defence in the event of a potential claim against you, and they therefore need to record as a minimum details of the Treatment provided – specifically related to processes and procedures.  

Balens Ltd

These should include a record of:

  • Dates, times, locations and for whom;
  • What treatments were performed / given;
  • Details of products used;
  • Confirmation of patch testing where necessary (check product and policy wording requirements);
  • Any advice given including for after care;
  • Detail of medical information, but only where this may result in a contra indication, for example it would be relevant for an Aromatherapist to know if a client is pregnant or has a nut allergy, as this would have an impact on the oils that are used.

It will generally not be necessary for you to retain additional sensitive personal information that a client may have divulged, although your Professional Association may have additional requirements regarding record keeping.  If required to be retained, Sensitive Information may be retained under ‘processing in the substantial public interest for Counselling etc.’ and ‘insurance’ as notified in the Data Protection Act 2018.  Details of this should be noted in your Privacy Notice, which needs to be provided to all clients at the point when their personal data is taken.

Do you have a Massage Couch or similar with a Weight Limit?

It may be a trope, but we understand that the odd waistline or two may have increased slightly over lockdown.  This can have consequences for therapists who use equipment with weight limits as part of their practice. At Balens we have noticed a number of incidents where massage couches have buckled when a therapist’s client has got on them, and it appears this is because the weight limit of the couch has been exceeded.  We understand this can be a sensitive subject, and difficult for therapists to breach with their clients.  However it’s important that therapists can find a way of discussing this with their clients, should they have concerns that the limits may be exceeded. 

Have you had any Complaints or Claims against you? 

Please remember, if any client makes a complaint or claim against you, it is important to contact your Insurance Broker for support and guidance as soon and as early in the process as possible.  Don’t wait for situations to escalate, your Broker is there for you, not to judge, but to provide the benefit that you purchase your insurance for.  A complaint handled well may lead to a happy client for years to come, if handled badly, it could lead to a potentially stressful and time consuming claim.   For a list of do’s and don’ts in some common complaint situations, please see Balens website Claims - Balens Ltd.

Fascial Fitness – How to be Energetic, Elastic and Dynamic in Everyday Life and Sport, Second Edition

by Robert Schleip

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2021. £14.49 / $24.95.  ISBN  978 1 913088 21 7.

Physiotherapists, sports scientists and doctors agree that if we want to stay flexible, energetic and pain-free in our day-to-day lives and sporting pursuits, we need to look after our connective tissue – our ‘fascia’. There has been a great deal of research into this over the last few years, all of which shows that the fascia around our muscles plays a huge role in keeping us fit, healthy, flexible and feeling good. This versatile tissue transfers energy to the muscles, communicates with the nervous system, acts as a sensory organ, helps to protect and regenerate our internal organs, and provides the foundations for a healthy physique. It responds to stress and other stimuli, and when it gets matted or sticks together, it can cause pain and mobility problems. That’s why it’s so important to train our fascia – and just 10 minutes, twice a week is all it takes!

Cover Fascial Fitness

In this revised edition of his best-selling guide to fascial fitness, Robert Schleip shows you a series of practical exercises that you can easily build into your day-to-day routine. He introduces the most recent scientific findings from the world of fascial research, and explains which methods and equipment are most effective for fascial health (as well as which ones do more harm than good!).

Dr Robert Schleip is one of the leading fascia researchers worldwide. He holds a doctorate in human biology and is a certified Rolfing practitioner and psychologist. As a scientist at the University of Ulm, he leads the fascia research group, and also works as a manual Rolfing therapist at his own private practice. In a teaching capacity, he gives lectures on physiotherapy, osteopathy and exercise science.

The Migra Cap® is unique amongst migraine treatments as it combines cold therapy and complete darkness to provide relief from the pain associated with a migraine and most types of headaches.

What is a Migraine?

A migraine is a throbbing, intense headache in one half of the head. It can affect people of all ages. The cause of migraine is not known. During an attack, the blood vessels in the brain dilate and then draw together with stimulation of nerve endings near the affected blood vessels. These changes to the blood vessels are probably what cause the pain, but migraine headaches is a condition that is poorly understood.

What are the Typical Features of Migraine?

People often use the word migraine to refer to headaches of many different types. So-called classical migraine attacks have several features:

  • Headaches that occur in bouts of between roughly 4 to 72 hours;
  • Headaches usually affect one side of the head at a time, although both sides may be affected in separate attacks;
  • Headaches are usually throbbing and worsened by normal physical activity nausea and/or vomiting;
  • Preceding symptoms, called the 'aura' that most often are visual, such as zigzag lines or flashing lights across or at the edges of the fields of vision
  • Other symptoms can include sensitivity to light and sound, or non-visual aura such as a sensation of tingling in the body.

Drug Free Relief

Migra-Cap helps to relieve pain and suffering by limiting exposure to the key elements that can prolong or enhance a migraine attack, remedies that utilise drugs such as Aspirin, Paracetemol and Butalbital can have side effects, consumption issues or even produce allergic reactions. More powerful painkillers eg Paramax, Migramax, Domperamol can require strict dosage guidelines and are often expensive to purchase.

Sports Applications

Migra-Cap can help to relieve pain and swelling caused by nearly all types of sports injuries. The Migra-Cap® can aid with the treatment and relief of pain, blows to the head and concussions. The cooling effect can aid in the reduction of swelling and can help limit post-concussion swelling or brain injury.

Anthocyanin levels in Haskapa take Science-backed New ‘Superfood’ to the next Level

Haskapa, creators of a new all-natural superberry powder, take a lifelong healthy approach to

eating, supported by scientific research. Haskapa Powder is made exclusively from wonderfully tangy plump, juicy haskap berries that feature vibrant blue skins and deep crimson flesh. These unique qualities give them one of the highest recorded anthocyanin values of any berry.  Anthocyanins are naturally occurring plant pigments, which are responsible for giving certain fruits their deep purple, blue or red hues. Anthocyanins are associated with cardio-protective benefits, including reducing the risk of heart attacks and high blood pressure and improving aspects of cognitive decline.[1] 

Haskapa Product Pouch

Haskap berries have up to a staggering 4 times more anthocyanins than blueberries.

Anthocyanins also play a role in sports nutrition, with the potential to improve performance and mitigate the development of exercise-induced oxidative stress. Their anti-inflammatory effects may have a role to play in improving exercise recovery.[2]

In addition, haskap berries have triple the antioxidants found in blueberries. The effects of oxidative stress on our bodies is becoming more well-known. Antioxidants help fight chronic oxidative stress, which is associated with the development of many chronic diseases. 

Native to northern hemisphere countries, the indigenous Ainu people of northern Japan have been eating haskap berries for centuries, fondly referring to them as 'the elixir of life'. 

Now, for the first time, these pure, plant-based and naturally vegan berries have been simply freeze-dried into a convenient powder to preserve their goodness and delicious flavour, that is easily incorporated into your diet. Haskapa can be added to yogurt, oats and granola, making it a tasty and easy addition to breakfast. Haskapa also adds a delicious and natural flavour and purple colour to vegetable and fruit-based smoothies, as well as dairy and non-dairy milks, including kefir.

Getting your ultimate anthocyanin daily boost has never been easier or more delicious. Each resealable pouch of Haskapa offers 100g of pure, natural haskap berry powder. Free from lactose, gluten and dairy, there are no artificial ingredients, colours or sugars added to this all-natural, 100% vegan superfood.

Instant Relief Eye Spray from Peep Club – Relieve Dry Eyes in Seconds

Place one in your desk drawer, handbag, on your bathroom shelf or next to your bed for an instant peeper-pick-me-up. Modern living means that we’re spending more and more time on our phones and computers, and as you blink 6-8x less when you look at a screen, it’s no wonder that many of us are ending the day with tired and heavy eyes.

You haven’t imagined that feeling of strain in your eyes after a long day of screen time, these symptoms have a name – Dry Eye Syndrome – a condition that is affecting up to 80% of consumers. A concerning thought, especially when screen use has increased by 187% over these past three lockdowns.

Peep Club Instant Relief Eye Spray

To combat the condition, this month marks the launch of the latest product from modern eye care brand, created by expert optometrists, Peep Club – the new Instant Relief Eye Spray designed to strengthen and fight the dry eye effect. Hydrating eyes from the inside out with a clever combo of ingredients

Peep Club Instant Relief Dry Eye Spray has been formulated with Wild Harvested Colourless Sea Buckthorn Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate, both of which have been clinically proven to relieve symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome. These dual-active ingredients work in tandem to hydrate eyes on both the inside and the outside. Sea Buckthorn Oil slowly spreads across the tear film to help lock in the moisture of tears, which helps to naturally protest eyes from drying. Sodium Hyaluronate works by both strengthening tears and protecting them at a cellular level, fortifying tear fluid for better hydration throughout the day and also working on the surrounding eyelid and under eye area, to help hydrate, plump and protect the barrier of the delicate eye skin.

Peep Club Instant Relief Dry Eye Spray is alcohol-free, preservative-free, vegan and made using organic and wild-harvested ingredients. It is suitable for even the most sensitive eyes, as well as being suitable for contact lens wearers and can be used over makeup.

How to Use

Hold the spray 15-20 cm from the face and spritz across closed eyes. Apply 1-2 times per eye. Instant Relief Eye Spray can be used up to 4 times per day, or as often as needed. Peep Club also recommend using the spray morning and night before applying eye cream / serum.

Peep Club Instant Relief Eye Spray is £15 / 17ml (approx. 300 doses) and is available from 



New Vegan Health Supplement Yellow Root – Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Feel better, naturally, with the 100% natural, vegan supplement range which could help aches, pains and inflammation. Cortiba Health, the brand-new joint venture by highly respected pharmaceutical service companies IPS Pharma and Lyrus Life Sciences, releases its brand-new range of Turmeric Curcumin drops to address the current curcumin absorption barrier faced in the UK sector. Turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicines thanks to its antioxidant, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties. However, most Turmeric Curcumin supplements on the market - available as tablets, capsules, topical products or liquids - can struggle to reach the part of the body where they are needed most, which places burden on the liver.

Organic Liquid Turmeric Curcumin Supplements

Cortiba Health’s patented C3 Cura™ Advanced Absorption Technology produces Turmeric Curcumin drops that are instantly water soluble in their brand-new Yellow Root range, meaning only 1/100th of the conventional dose is required to achieve the desired therapeutic effects.  Yellow Root is available to purchase in three different forms: Yellow Root A, Yellow Root B12, and Yellow Root D3. Yellow Root A delivers high performance liquid curcumin with essential Vitamin A, which has a central role in enhancing immune function, and has been called an ‘anti-inflammation vitamin’   with its well-known anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects .

Dr Malini Sharma, Program Leader, said:

“As the temperature drops, it is very common for individuals to catch a common cold or flu. Yellow Root A helps support a strong immune system in two ways. Firstly, its active ingredient, Curcumin, is plant-derived and contains healing, anti-inflammatory properties which help to relieve individuals by helping the body naturally cleanse the respiratory tract. Secondly, we have enhanced our Yellow Root product with Vitamin A, often dubbed the ‘anti-inflammation vitamin’ for its central role in enhancing immune function.”

  • Yellow Root A can help users build their immunity against cold and flu, with its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
  • Yellow Root B12 combines maximally absorbed liquid curcumin with essential Vitamin B12, which is crucial for cell regulation and nerve function, and plays an important role in protein and fat metabolism. Yellow Root B12 could be advantageous in management of metabolic syndrome.
  • Yellow Root D3 is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant. Its curcuminoid content may help control the symptoms and flare-ups associated with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and osteoarthritis. If you require a way to reduce swelling and stiffness, improve joint mobility, and enhance your quality of life, Yellow Root D3 may be a good complementary treatment.

Further Information 

The Yellow Root range is available to purchase in 5ml, 15ml, and 30ml bottles on the Cortiba Health website.
