Healing Hips…A Session for Every Woman!

The Hips…such a key area for so many aspects of a woman’s life! Holistic Massage for Women in Abbotsford
Physically they take the weight of our upper body and help us to move in so many directions. Emotionally they are the body’s junk drawer as they carry our stress and unresolved emotions.

An amazing network of muscles, ligaments, bones, the root chakra and our nurturing energy it is said the hips cradle the soul.
A good hip massage opens up our movement, relieves stress on our lower back and allows us to move more freely while also releasing the build up of stress. Our root chakra feels more grounded and stable as energy flows unrestricted.

H2H Tips ~ the wonder whyse!

P question

Something new for the H2H pages that you’ll find here each week!

Tips that will help YOU to get more from your healthy “good for you” sessions that extend the benefits of your health session or hip bumping dance class, for days after you’ve had it

You may wonder why

  • I suggest that you drink more water after a Spinal Touch or Massage Session, or
  • Its a really good idea to soak in the tub tonight after your massage or an intensive dance class, or
  • Leaving the oil in your hair after a Champissage session or on your skin after an Abhyanga massage is so good for you, or
  • Being on a full dose of pain killers right before your session or dance class is not the best idea, or
  • When the muscle burns it’s ok but sharp pain isn’t when you’re dancing or working out
  • I’m such a nag about stretching, yoga and posture
  • Booking your Reiki or Craniosacral session at the end of the day is a much better idea than doing them first thing,
  • or

The reasons? All of these tips and more will help your body, mind and spirit get the most from your health session or dance class with me AND while making you health whyse will also make a difference in your self-care for days afterwards

and that means

YOU feeling vibrantly well !

Beginning next Wednesday and for each Wednesday after that I’ll share the why’s for the above wonderments and so many others! Follow the blog to have the tips delivered directly to your email inbox or come back to visit the page.

I’d also love to hear any “wonder why” questions you have….so please share them here!

Pampering the Mother Figure

Personally, I consider Mother’s day to be for those who are mothers and for those who are motherly…those with human children and those with furry kids!

Whatever form your kids take…you deserve to be honoured in a pampering way for the love and nurturing care that you provide.

Sunday, May 13

at the Fort Langley clinic

10:00 am to 5:30 pm

Treat “Mum” to…

 A session that begins with a soothing aromatherapy, herbal foot bath
while sipping cool water or herbal tea and
enjoying a peaceful candle-lit space with relaxing music

choose from:

A relaxing, soothing massage or

a blissful foot or hand reflexology session, or

 A rejuvenating, restoring reiki balance  



AND then

 take some extra time to sit or lie quietly before getting up

AND finally,

 take home a pampering gift package of bath salts, candle, tea, organic chocolate and a beautiful flower!

4 appointments available 
$135.00 (plus HST)
(payable at time of booking)

Quieting Your Space

Life is BUSY!

Would anybody disagree with that?

And as the world seems to speed up, our lives become increasingly chaotic and overwhelming, we’re constantly on the run as we try to fit a million things to do into shorter amounts of time…it feels like its spinning out of control

Don’t let yourself get drawn down that dark hole!

It is relatively easy to create a physical space, that as you pass by it, catch a glimpse of it, it’s simplicity and beauty cause your mind and senses to pause for a moment. It’s why I keep what is in my clinic rooms at a minimal…an uncluttered, peaceful and relaxing space = an uncluttered, peaceful and relaxed mind. I hope to see clients achieve that state of mind during the time they’re with me, many of them refer to my session rooms as their sanctuary from life for awhile…really, isn’t it one thing that we’re all trying to find?

Creating the space can be simple, actually the more simplistic the better. It doesn’t have to be large or fancy but it does need to be your space. A space that requires nothing of you, where there is nothing to “look after”, where you can stop, disengage your mind, breathe in the peace and just let go.

Find a place in your home where you can create this space for yourself, remove everything that is currently filling it up… clean it and then breathe. Bring back into this space only things that you love. Items that soften and relax all the 5 senses; scents that are reflective of positive memories, textures that soothe your skin, sounds that are gentle…

You don’t have to spend great lengths of time in this space, but you will find that you will be wanting to. The more time you spend in your sacred quiet space to rest your mind, body and spirit and breathe, the more connected you will find yourself becoming with the sacred space that is you.

I’ve created an additional space for you…my clients…

I would like to, as the weather becomes warmer, invite you to not rush back into your hectic schedule after your Fort Langley sessions with me. Instead I would like to invite you to take a glass of water find a comfortable chair on the deck and relax further, before you go back to “life as usual”. The deck is covered and comfortable and the view spectacular…however I cannot promise that the birds and squirrels won’t visit with you (from their cautious distance), that the horses in the back field won’t be running around and whickering, or that the kids next door won’t be bubbling over with laughter as they play……

Where do you find spaces that quiet your mind? Can you visit them everyday?
