Story: Alternative health therapies



London-based rebirthing therapists Gillian Steel (sitting) and Diana Roberts train people in Wellington in 1985. Rebirthing is a psychological therapy which aims to examine and resolve an individual's problematic issues and experiences by taking them back to their birth mentally and emotionally. Rebirthing is believed to release the 'baggage' acquired during a person's birth and subsequent life.
