Minutes of Three Counties Border Group Meeting held on 27th March 2008 at Macmillan House, Wokingham Hospital. 7.30pm – 10.00pm

Attendance: 9 Members and 5 non-Members
Apologies: No formal apologies received

Points of Interest:
A discussion took place on the recent BBC 2 programme that is investigating complimentary therapies. The programme considered Reflexology and explored its origin and how it worked. Unfortunately the programme did not present a very good case for Reflexology and gave no real explanation as to how it worked.

It was mentioned at the meeting that the BBC has removed the complimentary therapy pages from its medical webpage.

We talked further about the forthcoming regulation. One or two of our Members have experienced some delays in receiving confirmation of registration when applying to GRCCT. Others have had no real problem. There appear to have been a few teething problems setting up the Registration Group. It is hoped that these will be resolved soon.

The new Chairman of Embody (Kush Kuma) is planning to make contact with each of the Embody Group co-ordinators although as yet it has not been possible to arrange a suitable meeting time. Further developments are awaited. It is possible that Kush Kuma may be able to attend one of our group meetings.

Our Guest Speaker:
Angela introduced Leanna Millward who gave us an inspiring talk on Equine Facilitated Therapy. We were enthralled and fascinated with the concept of the therapy and heard how it could have a profound effect on emotional wellbeing and assist with personal development.

Dates of future meetings:
15th May 2008 Patrick Hamblin – Eye care in The Cameroons
10th July 2008 Diksha Chakravati – ‘How to Prevent RSi IN Yourself & Clients
18th September 2008 Anne Parry - Japanese Face Massage
20th November 2008 Ruth Naylor – Authogenic Therapy
(£5.00 for Members and £6.00 for non-Members)

Please remember, we are a self-supporting group and our attendance monies pay for the hire of the Macmillan centre and guest speaker fees. Without your support we will not survive so please thank you for attending and please remember, you can bring a friend.
