I can highly recommend Jong Baiks courses. I recently attended the Ear Reflexology course which involved using tiny tourmaline balls taped onto the ear for a variety of conditions. The plasters used are virtually invisible, easy to apply and I am getting great results with my clients.
Dr Melanie Jones at Paradise Clinic recommends highly Bach Flower Remedies. The Rescue Remedy is probably the most well known. The Emotional Eating Pack of 3 is excellent value. If you want to know more about Bach Flower Remedies there is a short free 30 minutes course that you can take.

1) Comfrey Oil information, its historic and medicinal usage with evidence on modern clinical trials. It is now believed that the allatoin (a main component of comfrey) is responsible for the growth and multiplication of skin cells http://www.organicaj.co.uk/comfrey-uses/
2) There have also been clinical trials where Comfrey Oil has responded well “Both active topical comfrey formulations were effective in relieving pain and stiffness and in improving physical functioning and were superior to placebo in those with primary osteoarthritis of the knee without serious adverse effects.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3259911/
3) “The results of this clinical trial were clear-cut and consistent across all primary and secondary efficacy variables. Comfrey root extract showed a remarkably potent and clinically relevant effect in reducing acute back pain. For the first time a fast-acting effect of the ointment (1 h) was also witnessed.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19460762
4) In the 17th century, Nicholas Culpeper (1616–1654) mentioned comfrey in his enlarged version of The English Physitian (Culpeper, 1656). He stated: ‘It is said to be so powerful to consolidate and knit together (…) and a Syrup made thereof is very effectual for all those (…) outward Wounds and Sores in the Fleshy or Sinewy part of the Body whatsoever’. He recommended comfrey among many other complaints for ‘Inward Wounds & Bruises, Wounds, Ruptures, broken Bones, Inflamation, Gout, and Pained Joynts.’
Today, this historical statement is widely supported by modern clinical data. Several recent randomized clinical trials substantiate the efficacy of topical comfrey preparations in the treatment of pain, inflammation and swelling of muscles and joints in the case of degenerative arthritis, acute myalgia in the back, sprains, contusions and strains after sports injuries and accidents, also in children aged 3 and over.

I have had feedback that the 7 breath relaxation when used in bed at night can help you to sleep. I have therefore removed the elements that bring you back out of the relaxation so you can carry on sleeping and wake naturally. Do try this one and let me have any feedback? Many thanks, Melanie. Here is the introduction to the 7 Breath Relaxation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kosAuEp6aP4&feature=youtu.be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_MjhGd8uFU&feature=youtu.be is the actual 7 breath relaxation
