RAINBOW KIDS TOUCH THERAPY ONLINE MAGAZINE !!!! Launch Date Spring 2021
I could actually spontaneously combust with the news that a dream come true for me is about to happen ! With the invaluable help and technical knowledge of my co-editor in chief ( !!! ) Millie Cooper, Rainbow Kids Touch Therapy Online Magazine is going to be LAUNCHED on my birthday, 21st March !!!! It’s a special birthday and to mark this milestone, this is my gift, in some small way ,to the global community we have all become during these scary and challenging times.
It will be a banging first issue too !! We will be leaping into Spring with an interview with Anna Kennedy OBE , articles by Mary Atkinson, founder of StoryMassage, Jyoti Jo Manuel, founder of Special Yoga, the story of Kratu the famous therapy dog and how he met his “muvver”, the inspirational and extraordinary Tess, along with articles about Kratu’s work with autism and mental health.
There are real life motivational stories and journeys too of young people who were totally written off and yet have gone on to bust all the myths and achieve the most tremendous things.
In this issue we hear about a young man named Eddie who is deaf and autistic , his heartbreaking but triumphant story, and who is now a special needs lawyer advocating and fighting for others !! I love it .
We need real and achievable hope, advice and light in the face of the constant stream of negativity from the Press and all over social media.
Not that we are glossing over anything by any means.
Mental health especially amongst our young people has hit global crisis levels and the suicide rate continues to soar. So in this magazine there is lots of advice, neuroscientifically backed and proven therapies, techniques and tools whether you are self isolating alone or within a bubble, whether you are disabled, differently-abled, neurodiverse or neurotypical, in a wheelchair or a hospital.
IT IS INCLUSIVE OF EVERYONE regardless of budget or situation.
It is for individuals of all ages , families , therapists , teachers and other professionals .
It is for the unemployed, those on furlough and those still working, especially if they are in the “front line’ as key workers.
There is something for everyone and every need.
There are even ready to go yoga stories, story massage stories, positive growth mindset games and exploring feelings games which are very bonding and often very funny.
The touch therapies I myself have included can be self administered or shared in your “bubbles” …. Touch boosts immunity !! We need it more than ever.
We ARE in this together and I hope with all my heart that there will be something for everyone within these pages of a very special , unique and much needed magazine . It will come out quarterly.
So watch this space !!
Lots of love,
Millie and Giuliana !
