M.E sufferer provides acupuncture treatment

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Jane Robinson, professional Acupuncturist undertook a full time degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine after being diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Fibromyalgia. She has recently taken up a new post at Brougham Hall Holistic Therapy Centre to give other sufferers of the disease a chance of benefiting from the ancient therapy.

Before discovering acupuncture, Jane was a housewife and mum struggling to manage basic daily tasks after being diagnosed with the condition. Less than three years later she completed her degree at the highly regarded Northern College of Acupuncture in York, undertaking training in Chinese Medical Theory for treatment and diagnosis, Western Medicine, Anatomy and Physiology, Massage, patient care, clinical procedures and practice.

Jane’s interest in acupuncture came about after becoming ill following a routine flu jab in 1993. Finally being diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Fibromyalgia, she tried everything medicine had to offer and many alternative remedies. However after thirteen years of struggling along, she discovered Traditional Acupuncture in 2006. Her recovery was slow after years of coping with the disease, however she felt improvements from the first treatment and found significant improvements in her quality of life. After seeing what Acupuncture could do for her, it inspired her to undertake her degree and feels passionate about helping others,

Jane Comments,

“I am constantly amazed at the effectiveness of Traditional Acupuncture and what it can do for so many conditions, especially those that don’t always respond well to conventional medicine such as stress, insomnia, migraine, fertility, anxiety, depression, muscular-skeletal conditions and lower back pain. I was so inspired by Acupuncture’s effectiveness for myself and my family too, that training to spend the rest of my life being able to share this special therapy with others was a tremendous honour.”

Jane’s special interest remains in Chronic Fatigue conditions such as M.E. and Fibromyalgia and has a great deal of understanding and empathy to offer patients to help them on their journey to wellness, whether they are bedbound with the curtains closed, or are managing to carry on working, but with their quality of life impaired. Jane is happy to visit patients at home as she personally understands how much effort it can take and recovery time needed, for some sufferers to visit a clinic.

Jane is now a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the UK’s main regulating body for Traditional Acupuncture and has recently become Brougham Hall Holistic Therapy Centre’s only therapist specialising in Traditional Acupuncture. For those who visit the Holistic Therapy Centre, the treatment room and atmosphere is holistically therapeutic in itself, offering a warm, cosy and calming environment, where patients have plenty of time to discuss their health, relax and enjoy the treatment on offer.

Treatments are available on Wednesdays, with home visits in the Penrith area on Thursdays. Appointments can be booked online at

Brougham Hall hosts unique Fayre & charity yoga event

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Following the success of last year’s Mind Body and Spirit event at Brougham Hall, local business woman Lindsay Wild who runs the Holistic Therapy Centre has announced a second fayre for 2013, taking place 31st May to 3rd June 2013, including an open air yoga event to raise money for charity.

The four day event aimed at those working in the industry or people looking for some relaxation and well being will take place within the unique setting of Brougham Hall. The event will give visitors the opportunity to relax and enjoy therapies, workshops and talks within the medieval walls of the historic site. The workshops will take place in an enchanting yurt which makes the event unlike any other Mind, Body and Spirit event in the area. In the workshop yurt visitors have the opportunity to sample and take part in new and unique courses, talks, guided meditations and coaching sessions, including crystal therapy, reiki, reflexology, face reading, soul signs and guided imagery.

Lindsay, who opened the Holistic Therapy Centre in June 2010, has invited renowned therapists, coaches and teachers from across the country who have the same high standards and values that she instils within the Holistic Therapy Centre; where she helps clients rediscover themselves, to achieve balance and harmony. The workshop yurtpromises to be an exciting and enjoyable experience for all and Lindsay encourages everybody to visit and join in for personal interest or professional development.

A second yurt will act as a retreat from the world outside to lose oneself within the healing and calming atmosphere created, sampling and enjoying the therapies on offer which will change every day. Some of the therapies to sample & enjoy in the therapy retreat yurtinclude reiki, reflexology, hypnotherapy, massage, bowen technique, intuitive reading and face readings.

Lindsey comments;

“We have some of the country’s top therapists visiting the Brougham Hall Mind Body and Spirit Holistic Therapy Fayre this year, building on the success of our first event, which raised £700 for charity. It is going to be a fantastic event for people who work in the health industries as they will have access to some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry, as well as anyone who wants to come along for a bit of pampering and to find out more about Holistic Therapies can help them. I’m very excited about the quality of people attending and am certain this will be an event unlike any other in the area.”

Places are limited so booking is advised to avoid disappointment. There will also be opportunities to book on further courses at the holistic therapy centre throughout the year with the teachers and coaches present.

Also taking place on the Saturday evening, 1st June at 6pm will be a spectacular open air Yoga event with Sue Wood, the centre’s yoga instructor, which will raise money for the children’s hospice in Carlisle. Everyone is welcome to join in for this one off yoga session to raise money for a worthy local charity. Cost is £7 each, which goes direct to the charity. People are advised to bring their own mat.

“I initially wanted to host an event like this to help a local good cause and this is something that is particularly close to my heart, so it is a great opportunity to do something I love, show of the Therapy Centre and what we do, whilst raising money for charity!” says Lindsay

Lindsay has developed a holistic therapy business over the past two years and has recently launched an online booking system and a unique range of healing crystals. The Holistic Therapy Centre will also be launching their own range of holistic skin care containing natural and organic ingredients made locally in 2103.
