We have been very busy recently! On 8th and 10th June we attended 2 carer events at Rosary Priory, Bushey,Niland House where Milka gave acupressure treatments, while Martine, Swaran and Julie offered neck and shoulder massages..
We started a 4 week project at Saracens Hendon. Parents and carers choose to have reiki or massage whilst their teens (who are all on the autism spectrum) practice their football skills.
Yesterday we spoke to enthusiastic activity co-ordinators in Barnet to explain the therapies that TDF could offer to care home residents. Watch this space!!!!!!
Today we have been eating our way through the delicious cake that Waitrose Mill Hill East gave us. Yummy!!!!!
