Roland Bal, currently enrolled in the Mature Student program at Brockwood just launched an interactive health website filled with many valuable tips and information:

Roland is a trained Cranio-Sacral therapist but he has also done training in Visceral Manipulation and Somato Emotional Release. He recently said the following about launching website:

“Many pages there are related to health and can be used as reference material when needed. I am often asked for advice concerning health issues so instead of having to send or write down links for people I have put everything on one site. You can subscribe to the site if you’d like to be notified when I post something new on it (right corner). The information contained in these pages could potentially save your or your loved one’s life or help you move forward. It is important to make people aware of alternative possibilities that WORK. Feel free to share and comment or ask questions – it’s set up as an interactive site, so enjoy.”

Indeed while the two are connected, students begin to be able to distinguish between the outer knowledge of the world and the inner knowledge of themselves. One of the points is for them to see that in both cases knowledge is constructed and must therefore be critiqued as such.
