Using the seasons to support our actions

Just as I encourage people to be aware of the cycles of the moon (women in particular) & use the changing pace, I thoroughly recommend we all do the same around the seasons… (btw it was a New Moon yesterday morning – anyone sense any surges of energy…?!) So, go gently with yourself if you become a little more slothful in Autumn & Winter,

Re-jiggling our priorities

Every so often, it seems vital to me, that we reflect & possibly ‘re-jiggle our priorities’, as they tend to change throughout the course of our lives. Sometimes we do this ‘voluntarily’, sometimes external events side swipe us & ‘insist’ we make those changes! Many of my clients have treatments with me as their current (or ongoing) priority is their health & wellbeing, whether

‘Efficient’ Exercise!

I am a lover of what I call ‘efficient’ exercise, & what I mean by that is one exercise that achieves several goals at once… That way, I need only do that one thing & I feel I’m good to go for the day & anything else is a bonus! Now, some of you will be serious exercisers… knock yourself out, I did that

Fear…

Fear is a compass telling you where to go… something I came across ages ago & it flashed into my head recently slightly differently – Fear is showing me the next ‘piece’ to work on… Frankly, I can’t remember what was on my mind, or going on in my life at the time, but, those of you who know me well, know I keep

Anecdotal Evidence or Wisdom

I was having a conversation recently with someone (male) who was a little scathing around ‘anecdotal evidence’ within medicine & I began to wonder if it was because I am a woman that I am very happy with what I would call anecdotal wisdom… And, could it also be that growing up at a different time, things that are now perceived to be dangerous,

Grief – in all its forms…

Grief… some of you may already have decided not to continue reading, or some will realise, that like Birth, there are many meanings… Grief does not have to mean death of a person, though obviously it can & it does, but it can also refer to relationships, jobs, childhood or other periods of our lives etc etc. We can grieve for many things, &

Respect your fluctuating energy

Respect your energy… it changes, it ebbs & flows, through the day, the week, the month, the seasons… These days, apparently, we are required to ‘deliver’ to the same standard every day, our ‘best selves’ always to the fore… Well, seriously, what’s human about that?! That’s a machine, surely… So… what if we were just a tad more respectful, & found small ways to

Calling All Business Owners!

Quite a number of my clients are Business Owners or Sole Traders (like me) & I tend to think it’s because we aim to take care of ourselves, because¬†our businesses depends on it… Now, this isn’t always true, sometimes we do crazy things to keep the work coming in… & I can’t pretend that a fortnightly or monthly bodywork session, with an opportunity to

Tiptoeing gently into 2019!

Hi all…¬†Here we go into another year, with a fair bit of hype about what that offers… I read a lovely piece the other day that said ‘ there is nothing magical about January 1st’, which I kinda like! Maybe, it’s being Scottish, that there does seem a sense of ‘magic’ around the end of one year & the beginning of the next, but…

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Clearly, I’m not going to even try & say anything original at this point! Did just want to send good wishes to those who aren’t on my mailing list, so haven’t had my newsletter by post or email. Do hope you’re all well & will manage the balance you need over the break (if you’re having one). It’s a strange time of year, I
