Celebrate Complementary Therapy Week 20-25 March!

Complementary Therapy Week takes place from 20th – 25th March 2023, sponsored by Complementary Health Professionals – one of the multi-disciplinary professional associations. They launched this event first in 2020 and it has now become an annual celebration of our industry. It is not just for their members either, but a celebration for everyone within our profession and a chance to shout about what we all do.




On CHP’s website, you can download free resources and information that offers ideas on how you might use this event in your locality to promote your services and let people know that you exist. It is an excellent way to not only have the chance to explain how amazing your therapies are, but also to attract new clients. There are also some free posters you can access or email their office if you would like a PDF or png file emailed out to you.

You could offer some free taster treatments, either in your clinic or get together with other therapists in your area and rent a space. You could offer to give a talk at a local centre that supports people with a chronic condition. CHP has sample presentations for its members to help if you have never given a talk before, but it is an excellent way to become visible. You could also put posters up in local gyms, libraries – anywhere! Alternatively, promote that it is Complementary Therapy Week and offer some discounts for the 5 days between 20th and 25th March.

As well as sponsoring the event, CHP has teamed up with some of its accredited training providers/schools and will be uploading videos to their Youtube Channel. There will be two on Reiki (one of these on animals), one on oncology massage and another about the importance of checking standards when choosing a course. There are also excellent videos there from last year’s event that you can still access, on essential oils, herbal medicine, the EMMETT technique, Sound Healing and more! Visit:

Jing Advanced Massage are accredited by CHP and are supporting the event with a FREE webinar on massage for migraines and headaches, which will also be recorded, in case you cannot make it on the day. This takes place on Wednesday March 22nd at 12 noon and you can book here:

On 20th March 2023, for its members, CHP is launching a an online networking forum at 7pm and this will count towards annual continuing professional development (CPD). This quarterly meeting will focus on a theme and will facilitate therapists meeting up online from all over the UK, sharing information and resources. The CHP directors and many of their top teachers will be joining in. Therapists often feel isolated when working as therapist from home, so this is a great way of feeling part of a community and free CPD is welcomed when everything else in life is costing more. For CPD purposes, you will need to write up a short reflective paragraph in your CPD log to evidence how you have incorporated the learning into your practice.

Quantum Wellness Opportunities Freely Available to All

by Sarah Williams ITEC

Upgrading our DNA.

We have always recognized the power and energy of crystals and refer to our bodies as now changing from their original carbon-base to the new light infused crystalline/silica based constructions as we upgrade our DNA utilizing the new light from the astrological Great Attractor or central suns light, which has been advising the upgrades to our DNA since 2015.

Utilizing new crystalline energy fields and using copper as the conductor we can now effect instant changes and healings to our personal toroidal fields. This enables the uninterrupted flow of our personal energy fields as they flow through our chakras and enable personal healing.


Sarah Williams and Quantum Field


Over the last 6 months I have been exploring Quantum well units of various types and am so excited to share some of my personal findings.

Wellness and Pain Relief can be Instant and Long Lasting

The only limitations seem to be our personal beliefs and our ‘soul contracts’.

I am a therapist in the holistic fields for over 30 years and I have never seen anything that comes close to this in terms of speed of results. I have been personally testing the Orynoco WSU V4 for 0ver 300 hours, with over 100 people now with ‘miraculous’ results.

“In the next phase of our human development we will need to explore the quantum field. The new perspectives, opportunities and development that have come out of this science have been far reaching over the last part of the 20th century. Further significant advancement has been made in the last two decades where we are now seeing this science coming to fruition to begin to impact on our everyday lives; the development of quantum computers is the most well-known.”
Malcolm Bosher (founder of Orynoco)

Positive Potential

The WSU Version 4 “pod” is a unifying field of coherence on all levels. It opens a path within a person’s field, thereby making it easier for that individual to access a very pure form of the life force energy potentials and information fields which are omnipresent in the Universe. The individual soul is what actually controls the whole process.

This new technology is said to have been gifted to humanity from “off-world” sources and reverse engineered by our scientists to now provide new health and wellness resources fort us all. The V4 QWU essentially makes your soul an offering to help it rejuvenate its human expression on Earth. The soul can then do whatever it wishes with that offering. The intention you make when inside the pod will influence what is experienced. What you think you can manifest instantly. So be careful what you wish for!


“I can now function and walk across a room “  (Parkinsons Disease )

"Makes the whole body tingle."

"Like speaking to an old friend”

"Lightens the heart."

"Nurturing, supportive and gentle”

"Feels like a hug." [bliss and joy.]

“Instantly relieved my long term back pain”

“My vision and hearing are so much better after just a 20minute session”


“What quantum physics teaches us is that everything we thought was physical is not physical.”

What to Do if your Client Makes a Right of Erasure Request

The 2018 Data Protection Act, provides all Natural Persons with a Right of Erasure, where a business or organisation holds personal information related to them. However, this Right is not absolute, and there are circumstances in which the business or organisation may refuse for data to be deleted, these are noted on the Information Commissioners Office website (Right to erasure | ICO) as:

The right to erasure does not apply if processing is necessary for one of the following reasons:

  • To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • To comply with a legal obligation;
  • For the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority;
  • For archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific research historical research or statistical purposes where erasure is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of that processing; or
  • For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.




Typically, Professional Liability Insurance policies will require therapists to hold client records for a period of 7 years to account for the Statute of Limitations on the different types of Claims that the policy covers.  However, there are certain instances when these Statutes may be extended, for example in the case of ‘vulnerable adults’, and the practitioner may choose to stipulate an extended period under specific circumstances.

Therapists records would form part of their defence should any client make a claim against them, which is why insurers require the records to be kept.  The 2018 Data Protection Act allows for records to keep ‘for the establishment exercise or defence of legal claims’, and therefore relinquishes individuals and businesses from any Right of Erasure request that they may receive, until the insurance policy conditions have been met.

All business and organisations that hold personal data, by law have to have a Privacy Notice that advises their clients of how they will process their personal data. Within this document, it should note the business Data Retention policy, i.e. how long they will hold client information.

Anyone who processes Special Category data, which may include their client’s ‘Health’ data, must have a Lawful basis for processing this information. Following consultation, the UK 2018 Data Protection Act has included the processing of this special category data under ‘processing in the substantial public interest for Counselling etc.’ and ‘insurance’. This information should also be noted in the Privacy Notice where applicable.

The 2018 Data Protection Act notes that records should be kept for ‘no longer than is necessary’, but does not stipulate what this means in terms of types of information or length of time. It would be for the individual therapist to determine what information is required for them to retain for the purpose of complying with their insurance policy terms. For Balens, we note that the purpose of the records is to provide a defence in the event of a potential claim, and they therefore need to record as a minimum details of the Treatment provided - specifically related to processes and procedures.

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, and for Counsellors or similar professions the therapist may determine that there are specific elements that will need to be kept, that may be relevant to the therapy process.

Where a Therapist has received a request from their client regarding a Right of Erasure, they will need to respond to this within one calendar month. We would suggest the therapist to advise their client that they need to comply with Insurers Terms and Conditions, as allowed by the Data Protection Act, and retain the records necessary for them to be able to provide defence of a legal claim should this be required, but that they will make a note of when the policy requirements have lapsed, and will then be able to erase the full records at that point.

A Practitioner's Guide to Clinical Cupping: Effective Techniques for Pain Management and Injury

by Daniel Lawrence

Published by‎ Lotus Publishing. 2022. Paperback. £11.75/ $19.95. ISBN-10: ‎ 1913088332.

In this highly practical guide, acclaimed physical therapist and international lecturer Daniel Lawrence dispels some of the myths around cupping therapy and shows how it deserves to be viewed as a highly credible and versatile therapeutic tool in modern practice

Cupping – an ancient therapy which uses vacuum cups placed over the skin to treat a wide range of health conditions―appears in one of the earliest medical textbooks ever written and has been used in cultures around the world for thousands of years.


Cover Practitioners Guide to Clinical Cupping


Though much maligned by its perception as a “complementary therapy,” the emergence of modern research supporting the use of cupping to treat musculoskeletal conditions has seen it enjoy a huge resurgence in recent years. You only need look at the unmistakable cupping marks visible on Olympic swimmers to see how valued it is within professional sport.

An ancient treatment, a new way

Presented with clear descriptions, colour photographs, and QR codes linking to online video tutorials, Lawrence’s approach to dry cupping offers enhanced treatment outcomes and methods that are more readily accepted by Western medicine and modern manual therapy bodyworkers. These are techniques that deliver maximum benefit whilst minimizing some of the less desirable after-effects of more traditional methods.

Starting with the history of cupping, the book guides you through the principles of application with illustrated protocols for musculoskeletal conditions of the foot, ankle, lower leg, knee, thigh, hip, back, shoulder, wrist, hand, elbow, and neck.

Whether you are looking to treat Achilles tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or low back pain, Lawrence illustrates why cupping is a safe and effective choice of treatment. Where this book differs from others, however, is that it introduces the concept of using passive and active movement in a treatment. In this way, cupping can be viewed as an enhanced form of both massage and exercise rehabilitation. Couple this with a valuable understanding of how these techniques influence the nervous system and cupping now stands up to “evidence-based” scrutiny. This is modern cupping!

Niacin: The Real Story, 2nd Edition

by Abram Hoffer, Andrew W. Saul, and Harry D. Foster

Published by  Basic Health Publications, Inc. 2nd Edition  2023. £19.99/$27.99 Hardcover. Paperback £12.99/£17.99.  ISBN-10: ‎168442903X/  ISBN-10:1684429021

Niacin (vitamin B3) is a biomolecule required by all forms of life. It functions as a precursor to NAD, an enzymatic co-factor in hundreds of metabolic pathways. Niacin is called a vitamin because the body can only synthesize it slowly and therefore requires a small but adequate amount from the diet. The reason that we cannot synthesize adequate amounts of niacin can be traced back to evolutionary pressure.


Cover Niacin the Real Story 2nd Edition

Hyperlink to:


This new expanded edition nearly doubles the original Niacin: The Real Story, (from 228 to now 490 pages). It has several new chapters and appendices and more than 600 references to document recent advances in scientific knowledge about niacin.  A major focus of the book is how niacin supplements, along with adequate doses of all the other essential nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and a healthy diet that avoids sugar and processed foods, can prevent and even reverse a variety of diseases. This orthomolecular theme is developed in the chapter "Pandeficiency Disease." This theme is based on avoiding deficiencies of vitamins and minerals that contribute to a wide variety of conditions. Some vitamins are needed only in small milligram or microgram daily doses, but others such as vitamin C and niacin are needed in much higher doses, depending on the body's state of stress, inflammation, and disease.

In this revised edition of Niacin: The Real Story, authors Hoffer, Foster, and Saul clearly present the practical details of niacin treatment. Inevitable physician skepticism, and questions about niacin's proven safety and effectiveness, are thoroughly addressed in this book. The book provides vitamin dose protocols and a chapter on safety of niacin, to assist you in learning the proper doses along with supplements of other vitamins and minerals. It explains that by taking niacin at appropriate daily doses, you can prevent and reverse osteoarthritis (the most common form), elevated cholesterol and cardiovascular disease, and several types of mental illness including schizophrenia. You can determine the correct dose by starting at a very low dose, 20 mg (milligrams) per day, and then gradually increasing the dose over several weeks up to 1000 mg/day or more in divided doses. The skin flush that comes with taking a large niacin dose gradually disappears over several weeks. The flush can be avoided by replacing the niacin dose with niacinamide – but this doesn't help to correct high cholesterol as does niacin.

    Sleep Quality Kalms

    Ten hours of fragmented or poor-quality sleep won't be as beneficial as seven hours of undisturbed, restorative sleep. It is critical to think about sleep quality and whether the time you spend sleeping is restorative. According to Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, Physiologist and sleep therapist with over 25 years’ experience, we must start prioritizing sleep to ensure we get the rest we need and have the alertness, energy and focus that we require to perform in our daily lives. “Research shows that valerian can help people reduce stress, fall asleep more quickly and improve the quality of sleep…” You can find this essential ingredient in Kalms Night One-A-Night, a traditional herbal remedy used to promote relaxation and sleep, without causing drowsiness the next day.”

    Vegans Vitamin B12

    According to Dr Justine Butler, Head of Research at Viva "Everyone, regardless of diet, needs a reliable source of vitamin B12 and for vegans and people over 50, this means a supplement." "Viva! recommends that you take a daily B12 supplement providing 50 micrograms (μg) a day, or a weekly one providing 2,000 micrograms…"We need B12 to maintain healthy nerve cells, produce DNA; it work closely with folic acid to make red blood cells and also helps iron to work better in the body and is essential for a healthy immune system as well as helping to regulate mood.”
