I have recently completed training to become a provider of the GROOVE method!
This is a really fun way to experience dance, united as a group, yet still uniquely and authentically yourself.
I now have to complete and record some practice lessons to send in for review by my trainer and so if you are local and love dancing I’d be super grateful if I could borrow you for an hour in December.
GROOVE uses all genres and styles of music and there’s no complicated choreography to learn, each song has 2/3 really simple steps and then the rest is up to you!
The video will only be seen by my trainer and they will be checking out how I’m facilitating the session and won’t be looking at you.
These classes will be free of charge, although if you feel that you would like to donate something towards the cost of hiring the hall I would really appreciate it.
They will be held on Thursdays at 7pm in Kingswood Village Hall. If you’d like to know more information please get in contact. There will only be 5 places available for each session.
I have also set up a new website; www.groovewithelly.co.uk
As I’m sure your aware, from Monday 19th July the legal requirements to wear face masks will be removed and the onus will be upon personal responsibility for ongoing protection.
The GCMT, and my professional association MTI, are not recommending any changes to its current recommendations.
As a therapist I have a professional, legal and moral duty to protect the public and treat my clients safely and the failure to do so can result in prosecution and/or invalid insurance.
Therefore I shall be continuing to wear a face mask and visor during appointments.
Just had some sad news ☹️
You might be able to guess what it is, but I’ve just heard that my sponsored trek will have to be postponed again.
So I’m sorry to say that you’ll all have to put up with me badgering you for sponsor money for an extra six months now!
Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me and donated and helped out in anyway so far. You’re all brilliant 👍🏻💜

Did you know that your mental well-being/stress levels can have a physical effect on your body?
We all have a physical-mental connection even if we don’t know it or recognise it.
The physiological responses to stress (“fight and flight”) can include:
- Your muscles tense up ready for action
- Your breathing and heart rate quicken to pump blood and oxygen around your body quicker
- Your digestive system will slow down; digestion isn’t a top priority for your body if you need to run away from danger
- Your pupils dilate
- Sweat glands activate
- Blood is redirected away from your skin so you may look pale
- You may get a dry mouth – again digestion isn’t a priority when you are stressed
- Your immune system is supressed
Massage can have a de-stressing effect and reverse these actions. It can offer relief to people who are in physical pain or who have emotional stress and tension in their lives and bodies.
