Self-Funded Therapies

At Blackthorn, we have a self-funded therapy pathway that individuals can access beyond their programme or as stand alone therapy.  All fees received contribute to supporting the Blackthorn Trust.
Eurythmy is an active movement therapy, though well able to accommodate people’s disabilities, as it may be carried out standing, sitting and even in bed. These sessions offer a chance to learn the benefits of moving in a mindful manner to restore inner balance and calm. Using rhymes, poetry and music you will experience how rhythm works to dispel anxiety and promote well-being. Participating in this movement helps to establish harmony in the wholeness of our being and in our relationship to the world.
Rhythmical Massage
We are hoping to offer rhythmical massage in the near future.
Metal Colour Light Therapy
This unique therapy, developed in Germany by Marianne Altmaier, uses panels of etched hand-crafted glass mixed with metal oxides and sulphates to improve the well-being of people suffering from a number of ailments, including chronic pain, anxiety and sleep problems. When placed in front of natural light, the sun conveys to the observer the qualities of the metals transformed into colour. The Blackthorn Trust is the only site in the UK to have a full set of panels.
Bookings and fees
There is an initial consultation, costing £55, to establish suitability for the therapy and to allow an opportunity to experience it. Each session thereafter will cost £40 . The number of sessions needed will be discussed during the initial consultation.  If possible, cancellations need to be made at least 24 hours before the appointment.
For Eurythmy appointments please leave a message for Eva Richbell on 01622 722 214
