Personalized Oils

Personalized Oils

I love when a client comes into my space for the first time. I start off, like most massage therapist, with a simple health form, but after that nothing is the same from that point on. That health form is my jumping off point, a warm up, for understanding the goal of each client that comes in the door.

A massage with me at Metta Spa(Heather Small) will not only settle the body, relax the muscles, but get you started on your road to a healthier balanced mind body and spirit. One way that I will do that is to create your own personalized oils, allowing you to move forward each time you come in for your massage. Think about it for a moment, we all have some stresses in our lives, work, friends, our partners, kids ,taking care of our homes, each day presents us with a different challenge.The healthier the mind, body spirit connection is, the better off we are to handle the stresses that come our way. Some days are great, and others you cant wait to crawl into bed. So you come in for a massage, to relax those stressed muscles, and we talk a little about what brought you in, and what you would like to get from your massage session today. Maybe you have a lot of work to get done this week, or your mother-in-law is coming to visit, life is a constant change. How do you handle your daily stresses, good or bad?

This is where Metta Spa is different. My background starts many years ago,when I was a stay at home mom, when massage became a tool to help my kids, to relax them before bed or massage their bellies for digestion, the simple touch was so calming. So as my kids got older, I went off to school for massage therapy, this introduced me to many different groups of clients that need massage for many different ailments, I was quickly drawn to working with cancer clients. After completing my massage training I went on to continue my work with cancer clients and training in Boston with Dana Farbor, and Why Me in Worcester,MA. I have always been drawn to the side of holistic healing, which has brought me to the Ayuredic work that now incubuses the work I do. My training has moved forward with the goal of full body healing from massage, Ayurveda, Thai massage, meditation and herbal training.Together this allows me to create your  massage session with personalized oils that will bring in balance of the mind, body and spirit.

Massage is a great place to start, from their you can add personalized oils, learn more about meditation, yoga, foods for your body type, along with other ways to help relax and settle the mind and body.

Ayurveda, lets dive deeper

So what is Ayurveda?

I get this question a lot, or I hear - Ayurveda is to complicated. Yes, Ayurveda can be complicated, but I don't feel it should be and doesn't have to be.

Lets dive into Ayurveda.
First, how did I get to Ayurveda, lets go back a little ways. In 2006, I started my training at the Maharishi Ayurveda Center in Lancaster, MA. I had just finished a program at Dana Farber with Energy work and massage for cancer clients, when I started the training at the Ayurvedic center. The similarities between the two made for the perfect transition. Both looked at the importance of balance, digestion, proper sleep and the positive outlook of the emotions. As I dove into Ayurveda it was clear that being in balance with yourself and your environment effected every element of health. This was the beginning of a path in a  holistic lifestyle.

Ayurveda is one of the oldest known healing systems dating back thousands of years to India. This system was …

Trust in Self

This has been a practice for me this past year. Learning to trust in self is key to allowing my personal and business to continue to move forward and grow.

As we move out of 2018 and are into 2019, we where welcomed with an incredible lunar eclipse of the blood wolf moon. This is energetically a time to stop and reboot, to speak to your true self.

In this past year, I moved my business from one location to another location while opening a second location and launching my herbal business into the public online world. While it is all very exciting and quite the learning (and yes mistakes where made, but those are to learn from also), growing and self expansion.

During this growth, I had to learn to trust. Trusting my self, could I do this, how will my clients respond, can I grow enough business and do I have a strong enough support team to make this happen.

Well here I am, three  and a half months in, and taking stock in self, that 'Yes" I can do this. Now, I have not said th…

Om

Like the Mantra on my foot, it is the lotus coming up from the mud, patience, and beauty comes through. This is for me powerful. Metta Wellness stands for "loving kindness", with the lotus this is always a symbol for me that working through and staying on your path beauty opens.

Metta Wellness has been in a process of change, always moving forward, learning, and exploring along the way. As we moved into a new location, adding a second location and launching Metta Herbals into the online market and general public. Change, patience, and trust is my Mantra for this opening.

Lets step back a little. In May Metta Wellness moved into its new location in Shrewsbury,calming, easily located and just the right size.  This space also allows for the growth in Metta Wellness and Herbals. Taking time to set up and shift into this space (still organizing a few small details), adjusting and refocusing on the space and the path for Metta Wellness & Herbals. Change was our Mantra in May, …
