June 2023 Newsletter

Greetings and salutations lovely peeps

Thinking about this month – it’s been a bit of a whirlwind month. It seems as though so much is packed into a short time (still 29 or 30 days). We’ve just had a new moon as well as summer solstice creating just the beginning of a massive energetic shift that will be felt in every aspect of public and private life. So, if you’re feeling different, examining parts of your past and present that you’ve not thought of for a while, this is why!

This week I’ve been watching the Fantastic Fungi Film. I believe that fungi will become really significant in feeding and cleaning our planet - in restoring balance and providing much more. For many years we've considered growing mushrooms and at one point even got some logs together to grow them on. And then we moved. So the cycle has come around again for us and we are looking at our little garden to grow mushrooms. Watch here: []

Not Enlightened, but Lighter

Excerpted from lighter by Yung Pueblo

pick the path that lights you up

the one you know deep down is the right choice

stop listening to doubt

start connecting with courage

do not let the idea of normal get in the way

it may not be the easy path

but you know great things take effort

lean into your determination

lean into your mission

lean into the real you

I’ve had such a variety of conditions through my practice this month and thought I would just list some of the conditions that CST can help with.

Back Pain

CST can help reduce tension and pain in the back, improving symptoms associated with conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis.

Neck Pain

CST can help alleviate tension and pain in the neck area, improving symptoms associated with conditions such as whiplash, cervical disc herniation, and cervical spondylosis.

Joint Pain

CST can help reduce inflammation and improve mobility in joints, improving symptoms associated with conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and joint injuries.


CST can help alleviate pain and tension associated with fibromyalgia, improving overall quality of life for those living with this condition.

TMJ Dysfunction

CST can help alleviate tension in the jaw area, improving symptoms associated with TMJ dysfunction such as pain, clicking, and limited movement. About 15 years ago I worked with a dentist, correcting her patient’s bite and all of the above.

King Street Studios had a fantastic exhibition at the Silverdale and Arnside Art Trail with such an amazing variety of artwork available from paintings, tin-can-and-old-nails art, pottery, jewellery and more. I love these exhibitions that show how creative people are.

I have hung my paintings called Healing I, II and III in my therapy room. Embedded in each of the paintings are ancient and modern healing symbols holding within them the healing frequency / energy related to those symbols. They are all for sale.

This week I made some spicy cabbage pickle with our very own cabbage. I’m looking forward to eating our harvest as an accompaniment to salad or as a spice.

Psychedelics is the new word on the block these days and there’s a lot being said about their value in healing mental and emotional and therefore physical conditions. I’m listening to a podcast with Jeff Krasno and Dr Dave Rabin on this subject at the moment to decide for myself if psychedelics have any real relevance and safety in our new world.

“True health is not marked by loosing a few pounds or the absence of disease, but by feeling good and showing up, and giving your best gifts to the world.”

From Pesticide Action Network UK – an invitation:

We welcome everyone to join us at the following events as we launch ‘Greener Cities: A guide to the plants on our pavement’ in celebration of our wonderful urban weeds.

4th July – Online (free, donation optional)

We will be joined online by three experts in urban nature:

Dr Amanda Tuke (urban botanist and contributing author) who will turn a spotlight on some of the many plants that thrive on our streets and provide an insight into their importance.

Brigit Strawbridge Howard (naturalist and author of ‘Dancing with Bees’) will discuss the benefits of these plants for our insects and other wildlife.

Sarah Cooke (Associate Landscape Architect, Groundwork) will speak of the importance of purposefully designing the wild spaces in our cities to benefit biodiversity.

"Where nature has the freedom to do what nature chooses,

rather than what we think nature should do; when we stop the clock,

take a back seat, and become observers rather than masters; there,

unexpected and magical things begin to happen.”

~Bridget Strawbridge Howard

For the months of July and August I will be changing my newsletter and blog routine to one Friday Finale blog and one newsletter for each month.

If you have any questions or comments about anything in this newsletter please feel free to contact me.

Summer blessings - take time to connect with the earth, sky and water and remember we are very much a part of everything.
