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!

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

For some, even my arrival, the

Massage session and/or self care…?

Diving straight in… You ‘inhabit’ your body 24 hours a day, for however long you’ve been alive, & you do what you do & how you do it every minute of every hour of every day… So, you build up ‘patterns of use‘, in the muscles (& in the brain). If I give you a massage, say for 60 minutes, that’s how long I have

The delicious massage waxes I use…

Those of you who have, or have had, massages with me, know I love to use delicious waxes for my treatments… well, some changes are afoot & I wanted to update you! Sadly, one very lovely supplier (Grace) is no longer producing her fab waxes as she’s focusing on her health… so, I’ve been busy exploring other suppliers. I know some of you have no
