Massage & your nervous system…

Massage gives your nervous system, your whole being, a chance to say ‘aaahh’,  to let go & relax… Of course I’m an advocate of massage, as I see again & again, with clients, how the simple act of just lying down already starts the process, never mind the music (or silence) & the delicious smells you can choose. 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).

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

Whilst doing some recent streamlining (aka de-cluttering!) I came across this quote, apparently from Saint Augustine…                                                 ‘People travel the world to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at

The idea behind my Blog Posts!

I wanted to be clear about this – I am not necessarily attempting to say anything especially clever or deep, nor share new information (though sometimes I may do that!) … but, what I am looking to do is to bring to the forefront of your minds aspects we can all forget, or let slip, along the way, with everyday life. Often this is

The next 20 – 30 years …

How do we maintain or improve our bodies & our brains, & therefore our output, whatever our specific plans? We are all different ages, in different circumstances, with very different histories…but, somehow we need to find some common understanding about the balance of what we put in, versus what we’ll get out. With the awareness that most of us don’t know how long we

Brilliant for overheated babies or kids too – a mood changer for all! Lavender and/or Tea Tree essential oil – these can be applied directly to the skin on insect bites, spots etc. You could use a

If in doubt, write an OVERLOAD list!

When I’m feeling overloaded, overwhelmed, or indeed low or grumpy… any ‘state’ I’m not keen on (!), I make a list… and, you will not believe how much difference writing ALL of what’s getting to you can make! I get a pad & let myself write EVERYTHING that comes into my head – diary style, this is not for anyone else’s eyes, & I
