A new Healing Centre is opening in Maidenhead, with weekly healing sessions and group activities available to the surrounding community. The Relief from Pain organisation, which was founded in 2011 in Maidenhead, has been leading the charge for alternative health practices in the area. "We are so pleased to expand our reach for providing all those in need with holistic healing," says Relief from Pain founder Ann Boone, " the Centre will be a place of education, understanding, and service to our community."
Since the organisation's beginnings, the focus has always been on helping people find their healthy mind within a healthy body. Says Ann: "We've always tried to show how important it is to be healthy on all levels; the physical, spiritual, emotional and mental aspects of our beings are equally important, and we want to cater to that in a greater way." She adds: "Through the Centre, we can give people the opportunity to focus on total self-care in a way that is easily accessible, sustainable, and fulfilling."
The Centre will take Relief From Pain's continuous underlying mission and bring it to the community in a more effective way. Some of the programmes that will be at the Centre include "Heal the Healers" which will seek to answer questions from other Healers, and give sessions to other Healers in the area. There will also be opportunities for people in the community to get involved and give back to others, such as through volunteering.
"Through serving the community, we can achieve the first step in the extended concept of a well-being center," says Ann. "While offering healing services for chronic pain sufferers and those most in need, we can also include physically healthy and able bodied people to show how important a supportive community network and access to these kinds of programmes can be for anyone's well-being."
The Centre will be open for clients, healers, families and those interested in the mission to create a dedicated, safe, and appropriate environment for healing. The new physical environment will seek to help channel positive healing energy, improving the experience of those seeking relief. By creating a designated place for those suffering with pain, Ann hopes that more people will be able to access alternative methods for pain management.
"We often work with people who are chronic pain sufferers, and for them, the traditional methods of pain management may not be enough. Through a comprehensive approach to healing, we can help them find relief in new and expanding ways," says Ann. "Through the Centre I hope to be able to give access to a greater number of people who may be suffering and looking for alternative methods in managing their total health."
The Centre opening will kick off with a series of different weekly sessions called "The Power of Touch." Those interested in participating and attending, should sign up through the Meetup page.
