The intention & experience (for many) is to harmonise within so that the body can return to optimum health & well-being. This gentle nurturing therapy is one simple way to access deeper states of relaxation & healing.

The client relaxes in a comfortable position & continues to relax deeper & deeper as the harmonic chimes are activated & placed around the body. As the chimes continue to be played intuitively by the practitioner; the body is bathed in a warm cocoon of sound resonance/vibration which assists the client to enjoy subtle shifts & releases of energy blockages. The physical & light bodies are re-aligned with the Universal Resonance, while the brain waves slow down to give deeper states of relaxation as everyday problems/worry/anxiety are left behind.

Many of my regular  Therapeutic Health  Massage clients are now enjoying an extra half-hour of Harmonic Healing on top of their massage. Most have enjoyed the extra healing dimension immensely. Others are finding that just one half-hour Energy Balance/Harmonic Healing brings delicious respite from stress = be it ill-health, over-worked or while facing major life challenges. When performed in a quiet supportive environment this simple, enjoyable & delightful natural healing method works very quickly to bring about deep feelings of relaxation & well-being.

In order to enjoy Regular Remedial Health Massage (RRHM) it is MOST essential to find a Qualified Experienced Natural Health Practitioner with whom you feel totally comfortable & supported.

I recommend you use the following criteria in your search

  • QUALIFICATIONS
  • EXPERIENCE
  • ENVIRONMENT
  • ACCESSIBLE
  • HOLISTIC
  • AFFORDABLE

QUALIFICATIONS = ESSENTIAL!!

Door displays the many Diplomas & Certificates

Ask to see relevant Qualifications

Ask to see credentials – although not always an indicator of a sensitive supportive personality, it is essential that your Therapist has a firm grasp of Basic Anatomy (the location and dynamics of bones/muscles/blood vessels/tendons/nerves etc). In order to gain a recognised qualification a Practitioner must demonstrate a certain level of proficiency in various techniques. Qualifications will often afford them membership to associations such as AMA – a wonderful place to start your search. Yet, some highly Professional Qualified and Experienced Practitioners (myself included) may also operate independently. During a 23 year career since my first Swedish & Sports Massage Diploma (1989); although I was accepted into SNTR, it has not been necessary for me to continue membership.

EXPERIENCE = HIGHLY  DESIRABLE!!

A Practitioner may hold certain level of qualification – BUT it is ONLY by experience that skills develop and continue to grow. During the periods when I have operated a Natural Healing Centre or been involved with Naturopathic Clinic, it was often the case that a qualified person would apply for a job yet was found to be unsuitable due to lack of experience.

I remember my own situation – it was at least 3 months of consistent weekly ‘hands on’ practice in a clinic environment before ‘the flow’ came into my sequence. Over the 23+ years I still continue to improve, adjust and develop my flowing sequence of Deep Tissue Movements.

Extra training and qualifications also help to improve the overall value your Therapist can bring to the Healing Treatment – Reflexology is one additive I believe essential to include in every hour of Remedial Health Massage.

ENVIRONMENT = RELAXING~PRIVATE~ SUPPORTIVE

                Many Natural Healing Centres are often located away from the hustle bustle of shopping centres or busy highways for a VERY good reason. The ideal environment for Improving Health & Healing needs to feel like a Sanctuary – a place removed from stressful sounds and energies such as artificial lightning/air conditioning/traffic noise & pollution. Naturally, sometimes it is necessary and possible to create a peaceful place amongst these dynamics.

Yet, it is desirable and highly recommended that you seek out a Practitioner operating away from such environments. Many people find a Mobile Massage Therapist who is willing to come to their home – as long as you set the room up away from phone/bright light/noise/distractions this can work well. Ideally, you will benefit from visiting a Healing Space already established for that purpose. A welcoming  place where you can enjoy relaxing sounds of nature or healing music, where you feel warm and comfortable and safe; and where you are not rushed/hurried.

ACCESSIBLITY = KEEP IT LOCAL!!

                It is wise to avoid unnecessary travel when accessing your RRHM – a maximum of 25/30min depending on location. Check around your local area (Public Noticeboards/Yellow Pages/Internet/Gumtree) to find the Perfect Remedial Health Practitioner for you. The MOST successful way I have found my clients is by recommendation – ask your friends and family. Ask other people who they know in your area – ask your neighbour, your work colleagues or other participants in your Yoga Class/Gym/Sport.

Once you have located your Ideal Therapist – KEEP Booking Ahead! By making another booking at your current appointment (every 2weeks ideal at first, then every 3 or 4) you are applying action to your intent  of RRHM and well on your way to developing your new Health Habit – your Life will improve & your body will thank you!

HOLISTIC = METAPHYSICAL

Your body is a reflection of your mind ~ Thought Patterns and Unresolved Emotional Energy stuck in the body brings tension/pain/disease. A truly Holistic Natural Health Practitioner will understand and respect the Inner Intelligence that permeates every cell/atom/molecule of your being. Working with you in this way assists your understanding and interpretation of your bodies’ messages, allowing a deeper connection to the Healing Force available to you.

A client and I will often consult with the  suggested Thought Patterns and Affirmations found in the helpful book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ by Louise Hay. At other times it maybe recommended that the client begin a regular practice such as Yoga to aid health/wellbeing; or consider Breathwork/Rebirthing for deeper unresolved issues. Regular Remedial Health Massage continues to be an integral part of EVERY Healing Outcome.

AFFORDABLE = INCENTITIVES??

Regular Remedial Health Massage promotes Rejuvenation & Relaxation

Many times I hear people say “my job is killing me” or “my back is killing me” and similar statements that suggest their stress levels are extremely high. Many are experiencing pain as a result of over-work or a job related injury (such as RSI, strains & sprains, anxiety and depression).

My suggestion of – reducing the workload in some way, is often met with the following replies “cost of living too high”; “mortgage/credit card has to be paid”; “love my work, would be lost without it”; “can’t afford to stop”; “no one to replace me” …and the list goes on.

Unfortunately, we often work week after week forgetting  the need to balance our activity with healthy rest/relaxation. Although “a few beers in front of the telly” constitutes rest to many a hard worker; there are also some simple healthy alternatives that could compliment any current lifestyle.

YOGA is one practice that is gentle, yet powerful for boosting the whole body/mind/spirit. Yoga is ALL about balance ~ a weekly session aids relaxation, flexibility, self-awareness and brings peace. Balance between work and rest/relaxation is often the key to surviving our work commitments, and avoiding illness/injury.

Regular Remedial Health Massage is another wonderful way to bring balance to the whole system – mind/body/spirit. In the past many have held the misconception that Remedial or Therapeutic Massage is mainly to aid recovery from injury – this is a bit like putting the ‘cart before the horse’. Many people (myself included) are committed to regular Massages (every 2 weeks for me, while for others 3/or 4weeks).

 Regular Remedial Health Massage brings a multitude of benefits. Tune into  my Facebook page (hit the LIKE button) to be connected with the many advantages posted each day throughout this month. Or visit my website and leave a contact email address to gain more information. Here is what other people have to say about the many gains to be enjoyed.

Astrology helps us navigate 'The Road of Life'

Astrology is an ancient language of symbols that has been used by humans for centuries to assist with decision making, planning events, understanding themselves and the world around them; and predicting the future.

My use of Astrology as a Natural Health Professional includes drawing on an individuals’ Natal Chart to gauge their current circumstances, as well as past & inner working potentials. I often cast my eye over the current transits for my clients when making appointments for major healing sessions such as Rebirthing/Breathwork.

The dynamics of Fitness Feb include the fact that for most of the month the Sun (symbol of Self in Natal Chart) is in the sign of Aquarius – giving Read the rest of this entry »

Therapeutic Massage is relaxing, healing, balancing . .  Regular Therapeutic Massage with a skilled therapist  will bring immense benefits throughout your whole body. Source someone who is Trained & Experienced – often the referral of a trusted friend will point you in the right direction.

There are many different types of Therapeutic Massage – Sports, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Kahuna to name a few.  The majority work on simular principals of gentle expert movements applied throughout the body in sequence. Massage for healing has its origins in ancient wisdom and traditions found in most cultures.

A good Massage will benefit all areas of the recipients’ body, as well as assist with calming the mind and occasionally helping with release of emotional blocks. The list of common ailments helped by Professional Massage Therapies is very long. It includes circulation problems, edema,  muscular aches, fatigue, chronic pain, fibro myalgia,  muscle cramping, injury, cellulite & carpal tunnel syndrome.

In my personal clinical experience (over 20years) I have assisted clients ~
coping with stressful work conditions;
throughout pregnancy;
with various back conditions; 
experiencing age-related symptoms such as arthritis;
many with chronic neck & shoulder pain;
and many others who maintain optimum health with a regular 1hour session.
During Therapeutic Massage the heartbeat is not increased, yet the movement of blood throughout the body is simular to doing physical exercise. Therefore both inner and outer health benefits can be equivalent to doing up to 3hours rigorous workout.

The ideal environment for receiving Therapeutic Massage is one away from loud noise and busy activities. The lighting would be soft, some natural airflow and the temperature will be mild, with gentle relaxing music playing in the background. And most importantly – the recipient/client  feels welcome, safe, comfortable and unhurried.

Other elements to look for when searching for a good Massage Therapist include – visible Credentials or Membership to Recognised Organisation; 
asks for previous & current  health history;
focus throughout the massage is kept on the person receiving; 
keeps distractions to absolute minimum;
maintain constant contact with body using balanced movements;
seeks feedback often to ensure comfort of recipient;
and keeps Silence as the Golden Rule unless client needs to talk.

Today I made an exciting discovery – Louise Hay has made a MOVIE!!

Heal your life the movie

'Heal your life' the movie

The movie, called ‘You can Heal your Life’ was made as part of her celebrations of  20years as  inspirational speaker and publishing self-help books, tapes, cards etc.
“I’ve become so delighted with this project,” Louise said about her film debut. “I’ve noticed that women in the film industry who are 35 are usually too old to get a part. But I’m 80 and I’m doing my first movie . . . and I’m the star. It’s very, very exciting.”

This movie is available online and is sure to be of immense value to anyone who sees it. Although it has been available for over 12 months now, I believe  this information will not date.

Louise had a simple message that she wanted to share: The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. Every cell within your body responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak.”

I LOVE the teachings of Louise Hay – her wisdom is a magnificent gift to the world.
I have found her books/products to be a valuable addition to my own personal healing journey. Many of my clients also work with ‘You can heal your Life’ (on my recommendation) for insights into body symptoms, reprogramming Thought Patterns, and even Guided Relaxation tapes.

You Can Heal Your Life: The Movie, which is hosted by Louise, offers not only an intimate look into her moving and inspirational life story, but also a special segment devoted to helping you apply Louise’s affirmations and groundbreaking wisdom to heal your own life and the challenges that you face today.

 Having flexibility usually means we are less likely to have pain with movement. We can do activities that are more strenuous without problem. And we feel confident and secure in our body. Of course the flexible body can indicate a flexible mind. BUT if we feel our body (in its current state) is somewhat rigid – then we focus on the mind to help accelerate the results we desire in our body.

Often we assume that to be flexible we must have a body made of  ‘jello’
– YET flexibility is just as much a state of mind.
