Oscar’s alternative therapies

Oscar is better at yoga than me – as you can see he can get his leg behind his head. He is also pretty good at relaxation and meditation, and when we listen to the hypnosis CD in the morning he doesn’t wake up when he’s told to, but stays in a trance until roused by a whiff of tuna or the sound of a distant tin opener.

I’m becoming a complimentary therapy junkie. Just been to acupuncture. I am going to try something called moxibustion which, it’s claimed, can enhance the positive effects of cheomotherapy while lowering the toxicity. The technique has been pioneered by a guy called Dr Friedrich Staebler who qualified as a medical doctor then later took up Chinese medicine. He recommends this treatment alongside acupuncture as a back-up rather than an alternative to conventional cancer treatment. Worth a try.

I know there’s a lot of quack science out there but acupuncture is something I think works. I started doing it about three years ago in an attempt to break a cycle of constant colds and fatigue. Since then I’ve been virtually virus free. Then I went and got cancer.

    Lady Fuchsia knows all the yoga positions (shame I can't attach the photos). Sometimes it gets close to kitty porn.

    And it's complmentary therapy, not complimentary.

    Shame on you, Clare, you're a wordssmith. :p

    There's no spell-checker on the blog. That's my excuse. All this techno stuff makes us lazy.
