Newsletter Spring 2016

A warm spring welcome to you all from the new look newsletter.  Some of you are receiving this for the first time but everyone else will see the newsletter has received a spring clean.  That is what spring is all about, isn't that right?   Its a perfect opportunity to look at our own businesses and see what works and what doesn't, make sure our book keeping is up to date ready to file the taxes and re look at our advertising and marketing.

I have lots to tell you about, course dates, new course location, interesting courses being offered by our local naturopathic clinic and also our wonderful Nutrition school in Toronto, the Acupressure workshop in October, Baby Footsteps and much more.
I hope you are all well and thriving and will enjoy this wonderful season about to start.

For those of you in Atlantic Canada, don't forget the Spring Conference, April 15/16 in Kentville.

For those of you who are still interested in learning, I recently heard about this website,  It is an amazing website offering free online courses that have been put together by lecturers and professors from universities around the world on a huge variety of subjects.  There are many medical ones which I think will be of interest.

For those of you interested in Nutrition, we will be offering our online 50 hour programme later in the year and in the meantime, check out this fantastic website,  Joy was one of our attendees at the mom and baby workshops in Toronto and she is such an inspiration for healthy recipes and ideas.

Please forward this email onto anyone you think might be interested in the content, and particularly if you know anyone in the Oshawa region who might like to learn Reflexology.
Don't forget to keep checking into FB, new information being posted all the time!

With best wishes, Janet
