Over the years, the event has moved from the Future Centre Trust, to Bayshore Complex in Bay Street, to the Main Guard (Clock Tower) in the Garrison to its home for the past three years at the Ursuline Convent, growing in popularity, as well as in the range of modalities on display. To reflect this growth, the name of the event was changed from Open Day to CHD in 2009.
“Reiki, of course, remains our main focus,” said Kathleen. “In addition, reflexology and different types of massage are offered and over the last several years the CHD has included such treatments as Acupuncture, Chakra Readings, Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, DNA (Life) Activations, Emotional Freedom Technique, Etheric Healing, Feng Shui, Body Detox Foot Bath, the AM (Zero Point Energy) Wand, Quantum Touch and Voice Bio Analysis. Products such as crystals, Kangen (alkaline) water, different herbal supplements and preparations, botanical toiletries, Aloe products and Anion napkins are on display and available for purchase. Demonstrations of yoga, tai chi, qi gong and oriental dancing take place at intervals throughout the day and books on health, healing and healthy living are on sale. Also available are healthy and great-tasting snacks and desserts,” she said.
Treatment costs are deliberately set low to enable patrons to sample the various therapies, with the maximum contribution requested being $20.00. The entrance fee of $10.00 entitles visitors to have a chance to win a range of amazing prizes and a gourmet vegetarian lunch is available at a reasonable cost, though advance booking with the Association is necessary.
This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever, so if you want to take charge of your own health – body, mind and spirit – with gentle, healing therapies, don’t miss CHD 2011 and sample as many modalities as you can. It may change your life.
