We’re all planning on a great time here at Festival as usual, although perhaps we should stop for a moment and consider our wellbeing.
In the shade and comparative quietness of the Trees in Leathermarket Gardens, access from Tyers Gate, take time to review your lifestyle and diet with health professionals, indulge in a short introduction to yoga. (Book at The Information Stall or take a chance).
We’re also very pleased that we have teamed up with Garrett Whitelock who have kindly agreed to sponsor Dimbleby Cancer Care, working with other private sector partners, in delivering an experience of the complementary therapies in this field.
Reenergise and invigorate * Introduce your children to the powerful release and relaxation of yoga * Quieten the mind and reconnect * Meditate under shady trees to relax and unwind * Experience the powerful healing and relaxation of reiki * Release tension through massage * Reduce anxiety and aid sleep through Bach flower remedies *
Our Wellbeing area has something for everyone this year. Join us throughout the day in Leathermarket Gardens (access from Tyers Gate) for a variety of yoga and meditation sessions designed to reconnect and ground, reenergise and release tension.
Chat to one of our complementary therapists offering advice and tasters treatments including reiki and massage, nutrition, Bach flowers and more. Pop along and book your session with us on the day.
Dimbleby Cancer Care will also be running a #DimbleTea stall with a selection of nutritious treats and delicious healing pukka teas as well as a tombola with prizes for all the family.
All yoga sessions are free of charge and the complementary therapies ask for a suggested donation towards local charity Dimbleby Cancer Care.
Dimbleby Cancer care was set up in 1966 in memory of renowned broadcaster Richard Dimbleby and we are now based at Guy’s Cancer Centre, London. Our mission is to help make life better for people facing cancer in the UK.
A cancer diagnosis can raise complex issues for both patients and their families. We help to address the psychological and practical impacts such as fear, isolation, uncertainty and financial anxieties through better communication, information and the provision of supportive therapies.
We do this;
• through its online directory of support services www.cancercaremap.org to help people across the UK find care and support services nearest to them
• through its Information and Support centres at Guy’s Cancer Centre and Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup, which offer a drop-in information service, specialist welfare benefits advice, psychological support, complementary therapies and the provision of Dimbleby pillows for cancer patients
• and through the Dimbleby Cancer Care Research Fund which has awarded over £2.7million in funding since 2004 to research projects looking at all aspects of cancer care.
Dimbleby Cancer Care receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations.
