|Welcome to RockRose Therapies||
I spent the Solstice demonstrating an Indian head massage at the Nunney & District W.I. A lovely group of ladies who warmly welcomed me and showed great interest in the massage.
January has certainly been a busy month! Clients have bought their loved ones Christmas gift vouchers in the treatments I give. It has been a great way for people who are not familiar with holistic therapies to enjoy a relaxing experience and learn about their benefits.
The Council Chambers Shepton Mallet held a free 'Wellness January MOT' event last week which I had the pleasure of being a part of. Therapists from around the Shepton Mallet area were invited to give a talk about the therapy they offered, mine being reflexology. It was a superb opportunity for people who knew nothing about certain treatments. It enabled them to ask us questions and experience a short treatment.
Holistic therapies are becoming more popular as people are finding them beneficial in todays stressful busy environment. This event highlights that what we do is beneficial for the wellness of our being.
I am looking for anyone
interested in taking
part in my mini-study:
‘Effects of essential oils
You will receive free samples and a free Wellness Consultation.
Please contact me if you are interested:
It has been two weeks since I became a doTerra Wellnessl Advocate. I'm already discovering that in our home we have a lot of power with these oils to help ourselves recover from physical issues. But what about emotions? Have you ever wondered why a simple smell can provoke a strong emotion or trigger a specific memory? I know the smell of freshly cut grass reminds me that spring was on it's way.
The doTERRA Mood Management Kit is the perfect example of this, and here’s why it works so well: Essential oils are simply a mixture of volatile aromatic compounds. These compounds are able to interact with the olfactory (smell) receptors in the nose. Our sense of smell can have a profound effect on our emotions, and simply inhaling the aroma can elicit an emotional response. The smell receptors located on the upper surface of the nasal cavity make direct links with the limbic system of the brain, where the scent is perceived and processed.
I've been using the gorgeous Citrus Bliss when I feel the need of a friendly comforting uplifter. Balance has helped us to stay centered and grounded on a day to day note. And not to forget the gentleness of Serentiy which I dilute with coconut oil and give my son reflexology on his feet before bedtime everynight. He's asleep within 10 minutes which is a record for him! These blends are a delight! They've arrived at the perfect time to regulate our moods as the evenings start to draw in earlier.
Moving to east Somerset has been incredible, wonderful and a dream come true! Talk about the glove fitting. For a long time I have wanted to be in this part of England but the timing and circumstances weren't right. I understand now for all the right reasons.
We have been here for 8 months and have met lovely people, people who we connect with on many levels. I've kick started RockRose Therapies once again but this time it feels different and I mean in an energetic sense. Things resonate more with me here. I'm sharing some photos of some recent happy memories with my new funky gazebo representing RockRose Therapies at festivals and fayres....there is more to come this summer!
My son and I have just come back from camping in the woods for three days. Nature is a wonderful therapy! I feel energised and full of happiness. This little trip has reminded myself to slow down a tad and block out the humdrum of every day living.
We got to listen to the soothing rain tapping on our tent. Smelt the damp earth in the mornings. Ziggy found the fattest, funkiest leopard slug ever! As well as deer, rabbits, butterflies and beetles. The full moon shone as we played sword fights with our sticks, running across the fields. We made fires which empowered him with great responsibility, popping the logs on and stoking it. Oh I love this time of year!
It's so easy getting caught up in the notions of everyday life. Sitting there in the woods reminded me of how simple life can be. Instead of surrounding ourselves with so much stuff, keeping ourselves unnecessarily busy with distractions.
I always advise my clients after a treatment to go for a quiet walk in the nature if they can. As humans it's the most natural thing we can do to rebalance ourselves and reconnect with the source. It's been a while since I've camped in the woods and I can feel the difference energetically within. We're already planning our next trip!
This December I have had the pleasure being a part of the festivities at Powell Corderoy School, Dorking and Leatherhead Trinity school. Children were very keen to have a look at the fossils and crystals I presented. It was a lovely opportunity to talk about the benefits of RockRose Therapies. I enjoyed giving reflexology treatments and Indian head massages to stressed parents and teachers!
I can't believe the month is almost over and what a busy one it's been! There's been little time to write in my blog so I'm going to be naughty and post this affirmation which resonates with me and others I know on many levels.
I believe that Valentine's day reaches further than telling a loved one how much you appreciate them. It is also a day to celebrate your own self worth, family, friends and send healing love out to the world.
I've selected three of my lovely crystals and given my interpretation about their healing energies.
OPALITE assists in verbalising deeper hidden feelings. It stimulates sexual prowess and boosts the libido. This iridescent crystal works on unblocking all of the chakras.
CHRYSOPRASE alleviates anxiety and depression therefore helping to heal the heart chakra, promoting joy and happiness. It enhances and strengthens friendships supporting unconditional love. This vibrant green crystal reaches out altruistically supporting global issues for the greater good.
ROSE QUARTZ offers inner peace, promotes forgiveness and assists in releasing repressed hurts. This gentle nurturing crystal encourages self love working on the heart chakra.
If you have a moment and are the keeper of any crystals that you feel support unconditional love, take a moment, light a candle and hold the crystal. Relax and tune into it. The journey is yours to enjoy!
According to the media the Monday just passed was supposed to be the most depressing day of the year. This has become a continuous theme in the media over the years that every third Monday of January is the bleakest day for our mental health. Do we really need to be told this? I ponder to myself, has science come up with some amazing instrument that collectively measures the entire populations mood frequency. Who are they to tell me how I'm feeling.
I was going to write a marketing article about the January blues and how a blast of reflexology would be a great pick me up in this cold, dark melancholic month. But bollocks to the January blues! It's all in the mind. True, those natural summer rays release happy endorphins but so does running, spicy food, meditation and eating chocolate! All within moderation of course, wise words of Hippocrates.
Although so many of us are still paying off our Christmas debts it is equally a time of optimism and planning for summer holidays. January is a time for quiet introspection. Being aware of what no longer serves us and removing it from our lives. Thus clearing the way for new beneficial manifestations. This can alleviate us from excess baggage which I find uplifting. I love the warmth of these cosy evenings snuggled up at home, gazing at wispy pink winter skies and being acutely aware of brittle grass breaking under my feet. January brings all of these and much more to me. All I have to do is raise my awareness of what brings cheer and gratitude into my life.
Depression. I'm not going to be dictated to about when I'm supposed to be so depressed. That would be a dangerous thing to do. Depression is complex and thrives throughout the year. But don't tell the media and pharmaceutical companies this. They might not shift their o so blue Monday articles and serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine releasing pills.
Reflexology is a fab pick me up particularly on the fourth Friday of February, third Thursday of August and the second Saturday of September. Got to throw in a bit of marketing somewhere! Right where did I leave that slab of dark rich chilli chocolate?
