HOPING EVERYONE HAD A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY


STILL SEASON IS HERE

Winter is here. We've already survived so many things aching to get to this moment when the slate is clean and 2016 is behind us.  Now that the holiday season is over, we have no excuse not to be a little still. Winter embodies natures stillness and in order to stay in tune with seasonal changes,  this is the time to rest and recharge. Massage is an essential part of recharging as its a passive way to release pent up energy. Here are three ways to honor yourself this January.

  MASSAGE RELEASES EMOTIONAL TENSION:
Massage is amazing for releasing tension in the muscles. Some tension seeks to hide deeper in the body, hybernating int the body but with my deeper touch and myofascial release that tension can also be found and released.  
LESS TENSION EASES UP ON YOUR KIDNEYS:
The kidneys work the hardest in the winter. Being still, replenishing your resources and  restoring your energy during the wintertime combats adrenal fatigue.
INDULGE IN WINTER OILS THAT SUPPORT THE KIDNEYS
FRANKINCENSE is a powerful kidney tonic that supports low back pain, the lungs and your immunity. CEDARWOOD promotes strength and willpower and YLANG YLANG keeps the heart calm and supported. These oils and more will be showcased in the cold winter months.

YOU CAN CLEANSE AND REST AT THE SAME TIME
Starting fresh doesn't have to mean killing yourself at the gym. Setting intentions can be stressful if you are too hard on yourself and perpetuate negative habits towards yourself. You can aim to be nicer towards yourself this year. My full body massage and cupping session allows essential oils to support your 5 major organs while the cups gently pull toxins out of the body. Perfect New Years Gift to yourself.
