Therapeutic Aromatherapy

The art – and science – of using plant oils in treatment. Aromatherapy is a truly holistic therapy, taking into account the mind, body and spirit of the person seeking help. Aromatherapy as a complementary therapy has its roots in the most ancient healing practices of humankind, for the plants from which essential oils have been derived have been used for thousands of years in healing processes before the technique of distilling oils was discovered. It is in recent years that we are only now re-discovering the lost heritage of knowledge to the natural holistic therapy benefit plant based topical product can have. As a trained Aromatherapist I will look far beyond the application of essential oils for aroma, and will seek to help the whole person in maintaining a balance of mental, physical and spiritual health. Essential oils lend themselves readily to a sensitive and subtle approach, for each has many physical properties blended and tailored to treat a specific symptom after the consultation process. Essential oils are often balancing in their effects, helping …

Utilising a variety of movements to relieve pain, ease tense and tight muscles increase circulation and benefit the physical body in other ways.

Nourish |Appreciative, connective & intimate relationships

February invites in the culture of love; the topic of being a little more connective and melting into the essence of tenderness. Finding consciousness is the foundation to being that little bit more aware of being connective. How often do we project our wants upon others? Learning to be more connective To be heart centred is to be in alignment with the touching of the self, at this point you receive the match of coming together in relationships. Feeling into others, to see and to listen with deep alignment. Where the other person is you. Gratitude & acknowledgement Appreciate and acknowledge love in action, look for it and learn to soften to anothers heart and gesture. Invite in this gratitude and acknowledgement into your relationship space.

It is important to listen and observe, to retire the right to be right. To provide spaces of ‘listening scapes’ where learning …

February Reflection | Bringing heartiness into your life

Recognisable into our current westernised practices is that heartiness now has a 360 holistic and complimentary narrative. Taking its roots deep and branches herin from the so many avenues of the easily digestible east before us. At this time I take my foot hold introduction into the medicinal complimentary worlds of methods of Kundalini yoga and aromatherapy as a therapist having practiced, taught and studied human anatomy and physiology as a profession for so many years. Those therapies which have gifted comparatively soothing and healing affects upon physical and psychological triggers within my own space. It is my beautiful pharmacy, my home, the seeds of my garden and my narrative. The western book of life acknowledges a pressure container and upwards movement to encourage routine exercise and the culture of advocating and assimilating that we are never quite enough. From this principle disease and illness of the mind arise due to a feeling of deficiency and imbalance in our modern day pathway. What this represents is pressure, not health. The earliest written records and scripts …

Comfort with Karma

Karma is the Sanskrit word for action where the teachings of karma is not meant to be a punishment. Present for the sake of education; it is deep rooted that a person only ‘suffers’ if they have created the conditions for suffering. The teachings are for the actions :: How else is someone to learn how to be a good person if they are never taught that harmful action is wrong. Alas a person only suffers if they have created the conditions for suffering. 1. The Great Law “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect.” To receive happiness, peace, love, and friendship, one must BE happy, peaceful, loving, and a true friend. Whatever one puts out into the Universe will come back to them. 2. The Law of Creation Life requires our participation to happen. It does not happen by itself. We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. Surround yourself with what you …

What can a new moon teach us?

All of the Universe is a vibration of energy. We are either vibrating in harmony or disharmony, vibrating frequency through our thoughts, words, actions, emotions, and feelings. What we put out to the Universe we receive back. Kundalini Yoga nurtures the recognition to resource the harmony and beauty within the messages gifted by the phases of nature to help us align into its vibration. Where the moons graceful female cycle forms as a life blood reminder of our own personal vibration of phases as a woman.  For our female energy waxes and wanes, ebs and flows much as do the seasons, tides and cycles of life. We simply can not present the same each and every day. Crafting a tending and attention to our own individual ever changing emotional garden with a piety to the self. Having a special attendance to taking care and allowing a container of delicacy for the me. This journey, our soul journey has selected the body we sit within now and with each moon phase it is a gentle reminder …

Making room in your life for tending to your emotions on a regular basis will and does keep a healthy, balanced and ready for life you.

Anger | The heart is a furnace

“When the inverted anger becomes part of the body, the simple effect is that you have absolutely no relationship with your Self… Inferiority complex or superiority complex are a cover-up of inner anger. Manipulation and lying are parts of inner anger. Not being self-sustaining or having a foundation to work it out is an inner anger. Misbehavior, wrong calculation, self-destruction, destroying the business, destroying the relationship are all inner anger… On the other hand, anger comes from the place of the Agaan Granthi. It is the area of the heart, it is the blood, it is the circulation, it is the diaphragm, it is the heart pumping. The whole life depends on it. So in the center of the heart is a furnace. Either it can cook for you or it can burn down your house and there is nothing in between. That is the tragedy of it.” -Yogi Bhajan
