THE GREEN HANDBOOK

A BIG EUROPEAN WELCOME

Despite the shabby behaviour of our

leaders, hope is to be found in youth.

Greta Thunberg has shown us that,

while politicians are failing, a 15 year

old Swedish girl can challenge gross

international failures. We now live in a

time when the young can call out corrupt

power, be heard, and highlight glaring

truths about climate change just as they

seem to slip off the radar.

We would like to thank Greta and the

school children around the world for the

pressure they are exerting on powerful

adults who seem fixated on xenophobia

rather than our futures.

We are delighted to have a photograph

by Phil McMenemy from the Gallery at

Laurieston on the front cover again. The

Gallery will soon be adding a tearoom so

why not drop in, say hello and get a cuppa.

THE GREEN HANDBOOK

Baby Massage

by Rachel Kirkpatrick

In the womb the sense of touch is

all around. Floating, then moving

on to a more massage type of

touch as baby gets bigger and fills the

womb. This gives babies a safe and

secure environment where they are

protected.

So why should this be any different

outside the womb? Babies, once

they are born, still need the same

safety and security they had. When

parents hold their baby, they have

that reassurance that they are still

protected. Without touch babies

can feel insecure, frightened, and

therefore unable to thrive or survive

in their environment.

Touch is our primary language of

compassion, and a primary means for

spreading this compassion.

The theorist, John Bowlby (1958),

devoted extensive research over many

years to the concept of attachment

theory and believed that there is

an evolutionary component to

attachment and that it aids human

survival. More recently, Suzanne

Zeedyk believes wholeheartedly

that babies come into our world

ready to connect. “The capacity

to be an engaged, relational being

doesn’t happen some time later in

development, such as when children

walk or talk or start school. The

capacity is present from birth. Babies

share in mental and emotional

experiences. This means that how we,

as adults, relate to our babies matters”

(2012).

The first 1001 days of life are critical

to enrich babies lives, and their

brains. Nourishing and nurturing

activities, such as baby massage, help

to grow their emotional intelligence,

resilience and emotional regulation.

So why is touch so important? The

skin is the largest sensory organ in our

body and not only acts as a shield, but

exudes anti-bacterial substances to

prevent infection and manufactures

vitamin D. It is also a huge sensor

packed with nerves keeping the brain

in touch with the outside world.

As touch is so important to our

wellbeing, you can see how baby

massage fits into all of this. Massage

THE GREEN HANDBOOK

stimulates the production of oxytocin

(the ‘love hormone’) and this has a

pain relieving and calming effect. It

also promotes the bonding between

parent and child and stimulates the

skin. This generates all the feelings

of love and protection. Massage can

aid digestion, sleep, and even prevent

baby illnesses by improving the

immune system.

Touching, holding, comforting and

massaging our babies enables them

to thrive and have confidence in the

uncertain world around them.

THE GREEN HANDBOOK

Nithsdale community group,

Farmersfield Rest-home for

Elderly Donkeys (FRED), is

asking for our votes to secure National

Lottery funding as part of this year’s

People’s Projects. Animals Supporting

People at FRED (ASPatFRED), based

just outside Dunscore, is hoping to

secure funding to allow all year round

animal assisted therapy in a safe and

secure covered space. ASPatFRED is

one of five groups in the ITV Border

region, each going for £50,000.

The donkeys at FRED are cared for by

the family-run charity and a team of

volunteers allowing them to live out

their remaining years in the peaceful

companionship of other elderly

animals.

The donkeys provide therapeutic aid

to groups, families and individuals

suffering from stress, relationship

difficulties, trauma, mental illness

and also people with learning

disabilities. If successful, ASPatFRED

will use the grant to provide a covered

space to allow a greater number

of visitors to benefit from animal

assisted therapy in all weathers.

Treating donkeys as individuals is the

bedrock of FRED. In the good weather

the old donkeys potter about in the

fields with their particular donkey

friends. In poor weather, the donkeys

have their stables with clean, deep

beds. FRED also takes in younger

donkeys if they are in need of a safe

and secure home.

On Monday 1st April, their project,

“Going Underground”, will be

showcased on Border regional news at

6pm. The programme will explain the

‘Animals Supportin

Needs Your Vote

development project and the benefits

of the scheme. For a chance at the top

prize, ASPatFRED is asking people to

support them by visiting the People’s

Projects website to vote.

Iraina McGroarty of ASPatFRED said:

“This is an exciting opportunity to

raise awareness and support for our

work, and with your help, to secure

further much-needed funding. We

urge local people to get behind us. If

successful, this will help us to make

an even bigger difference to our

local community by allowing animal

assisted therapy to be carried out

throughout the year. At the moment,

inclement weather vastly reduces and

interrupts our work here”.

THE GREEN HANDBOOK

Localised

Cryo Treatments

by Karen Shaw

There’s been a buzz around

cryotherapy for quite some

time now from a simple bag of

frozen peas or an ice bath, to full body

cryo chambers.

Localised cryostimulation uses

a laser-like device, channeling a

controlled beam of liquid nitrogen

vapour onto the body. It is a gentle,

non-invasive therapy using extreme

cold in a holistic way to counteract

all sorts of ills. There is no need for

the practitioner to touch you unless

combined with a massage. Despite

questions surrounding the practice,

there are plenty of scientific studies,

and anecdotal evidence, pointing

towards its effectiveness.

Cryotherapy has long been used by

athletes to heal the body and help

to prevent injuries. Localised cryostimulation,

targeting a specific

area, can treat scar tissue and nerve,

joint or muscle damage, as well as

accelerating recovery after surgery

or broken bones. It can also treat

neurological and inflammatory

conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia,

gout, multiple sclerosis and radicular

neuralgia.

The treatment accelerates healing and

recovery by encouraging the body to

circulate blood more rapidly into the

cooled area. This speeds the removal

of the by-products of tissue damage

while supplying fresh nutrients to the

recovering tissue. In turn this reduces

inflammation and pain.

Localised cryostimulation is most

often used to treat specific joint and

muscular problems, skin conditions,

the spine, and to boost the central

nervous system.

It has caught the attention of the

beauty industry because some

scientists believe it helps to reduce the

visible signs of ageing. It eliminates

the visible effects of tiredness,

tightens the skin and, through gentle

exfoliation, makes skin glow.

The science behind this suggests

that the liquid nitrogen vapour cools

the skin, exfoliating the top layer

of dead skin cells, promoting new

cell growth. This happens because

cryostimulation boosts blood flow,

pushing enzymes and nutrients into

dermal layers faster and eliminating

the toxins that cause ageing. Similarly,

it can make the delicate skin around

the eyes look less tired, reducing the

appearance of dark circles that can

make you look older.

The treatment also promotes collagen

production, which makes skin appear

plumper and younger, reducing

fine lines and wrinkles. As you age,

collagen production slows down, but a

Cryo facial gives your body a kick start

again, slowing down the acquisition

of fine lines and wrinkles.

Cryo facials are also used to treat

overly large pores, so even people

in their teens and early twenties

can benefit. Pores react to the cold

temperatures of cryotherapy by

tightening up, lessening the chances

16


THE GREEN HANDBOOK

of developing spots or even acne, by

warding off oil and impurities.

This treatment is not suitable for

people undergoing chemotherapy

or radiotherapy and the practitioner

should carry out an in-depth

consultation to ensure suitability for

treatment.

When applied by a professional,

localised cryostimulation is extremely

low risk. There are occasionally

some short term minor side effects,

like numbness, a dull ache, redness

and tingling.

Localised Cryostimulation and Cryo

Facials are currently available at the

Creeside Clinic in Newton Stewart.

THE GREEN HANDBOOK

The

Emmett Technique:

A Muscle Release Therapy

by Jane Henderson

The Emmett Technique was

developed by Ross Emmett in

Australia. He worked with the

originator of the Bowen Technique,

Tom Bowen, and then went on to

develop his own system. It is relatively

new to the UK, having only been

available here since 2008. Since

then more and more therapists have

trained and are now widely spread

across the UK.

This technique is safe to use on

everyone from babies to the elderly

and even on animals. Courses are

available in Emmett for horses and

dogs.

Emmett Technique is a gentle finger

pressure that releases trauma and

stress in muscles to improve range

of movement and can ease pain and

discomfort.

Emmett may help with many

conditions from skeletal imbalances,

ADVERTISE WITH US

Advertising in the Green Handbook is a great way to get your news and message across

to people in Dumfries & Galloway. We circulate 4,000 copies, have an estimated

readership of 10,000 and we now get 900 unique web visitors per month. The Green

Handbook is free to pick up from shops, cafés and venues from Stranraer to Eskdalemuir.

Readers tend to keep a copy at home as a reference. Advertisers often benefit by

spreading the cost across the year and being in every issue, rather than putting all their

budget into one bigger advert. The Green Handbook is also available to read online and

we create links from your adverts directly to your website, email or Facebook etc.
