The Blackthorn Trust has been using unique Steiner-inspired therapies to help its service users for over 30 years. Until recently these therapies were only available to those who were engaged in our programmes. In 2018 we are proud to offer courses of Eurythmy and Metal Colour Light therapy to the general public.
What is Eurythmy?
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 classes 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 totality of our being and in our relationship to the world.
What is 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
Fees and Cancellations
There is an initial consultation, costing £55, to establish suitability for the therapy and to allow an opportunity to experience it before signing up for the course. Each session thereafter will cost £40 and will be payable in advance. The number of sessions needed will be agreed during the initial consultation.
Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours before the appointment. Cancellations made within 24 hours of the appointment may incur a fee equivalent to the price of the treatment. This fee also applies if you do not attend your appointment.
