I am often asked by my clients why massage aids relaxation. I help my clients to become ‘pain-free’ and more body functional using sports and remedial massage. At times I will combine this type of massage with reflexology to promote relaxation within a client’s body.
From an early age, I can remember my mother teaching me to always, as best I can live in the ‘present’ moment, not the past nor the future. This is not easy I know and I have suffered a lot from living in the past post my mothers’ passing to cancer at age eighteen. Living in the past gets you nowhere but unfortunately, it is our brains ‘default’ setting.
Did you know that different moments in your daily life will evoke different emotions? Sometimes this can become so overwhelming, that you can find yourself at a loss as to what to do. This is where guided meditation can really help. Especially when you find yourself in a whirlwind vortex of spinning thoughts. This combined with a low mood really is an ‘unhealthy’ mix.
Relaxation is a really powerful coping skill that can be implemented when the storms of life go into hyperdrive! Now, more than ever, since the Coronavirus has graced us with its presence, all parents out there are forced to relearn. You must arm yourself with new coping skills. I am here to help you upskill, so you can help your children to stay calm and create a sense of peace during these turbulent and uncertain times.
No one takes time to care for their feet on a regular basis, let along gives themselves a foot massage. Those who spend no time on their feet, for health, are really missing a trick. It is time to introduce ‘self-care’ practices as we go into a time of self-isolating and social distancing.
Take a step back to a time when you were living carefree, no stress, no real burdens, pressures or responsibilities in life…..I bet you will automatically imagine yourself as a child again, playing with friends. Maybe you see this as a distant memory or a thing of the past that cannot be achieved again.
Reflexology can be used to promote wellness in other parts of the body. The foot has many ‘reflex’ points that directly relate to organs and other structures of the body.
I cannot press upon you enough, the need for a good mind and soul connection. How you think about yourself and your surroundings is ultimately how you will view your external world. If you are enjoying your life, your mind will be in a positive happy state and it will fill your soul with playful, joyous feelings and you will be a beacon, radiating light wherever you go! The opposite can also be true. If you think negative, useless and irrational thoughts, you will become closed down, hopeless and your soul may become dampened and heavy with fear.
I am an integrated therapist with many years of experience under my belt. Overtime, I have been asked many weird, wonderful and unusual questions, regarding my line of work and how I feel about certain aspects of it. Some are so commonly asked, that I have been able to recollect them and have put them down on paper for you to read.
Do you struggle to re-focus and re-energise? I find that every day is different when it comes to my level of concentration and the distractions around me.
