Staying healthy and relaxed at home is key to supporting your well-being during periods of lockdown. The last year and a half have been tough on everyone, but you don't have to go it alone.
IICT was created to support our community of complementary therapists, in good and bad times. In this ongoing lockdown challenge, we have put together a collection of FREE resources and tools to help you find ways to support you - mind, body and spirit.
We hope you find the resources below helpful in building a positive mindset and a healthy lifestyle to make it through these trying times with confident optimism. Take care and stay safe.

Dive deeply into the practice of self-compassion. As practitioners, we are natural givers. That is our superpower.
