Positive becomes positive

Yes, positive becomes positive!
My work as a massage therapist is so much more then just massaging the body, it's about listening to my clients and encouraging a balanced way of life. I find sometimes the simple things like being positive help me and help working with my clients everyday.
Every day we make a choice, to get up and start our day, and what kind of day we will have.Once we step out into the world we then make a choice of how we are going to effect others around us. It seems so simple, but many of use do not take the time to think about this or even consider this into our daily lives.

Take a step back, when you are on your way to work, or at the store, your interactions with others will effect how you move forward, it's only fair that your reaction would do the same for another. When your with your group of friends and everyone is having a great time, laughing, talking, being kind to each other, you are more apt to be friendly, laughing, enjoying, its kind of contagious.

The same goes with the negative, if you observe and listen, when a friend, co-worker starts to complain many others will join in or add more to the pot. Think about your morning commute when that other driver cut you off, and you became angry, or a co-worker was frustrated and verbalized this towards you, we all have these daily challenges. You carry this frustration or anger with  and then it pours over to other around you.

I find this time of the year can be a challenge to many people, finances are tough, family issues come out, people are lonely, family is far away. Take a moment, reflect on how you would like others to view you, and how you would like to effect their day. You make a choice everyday, how do you want to start your day,and how do you want this to pour over to someone else.

I challenge you to share happiness and be positive with those around you, see how this comes back to you, lets take the time to share a positive. Post it, chat with us on facebook, share how you feel when you are happy and if you see how people respond to you.See if you can make Positive become positive!

#02 Self-Care

Do something nice for yourself. Sounds easy, right. How often have you given a friend, co-worker or partner some good advise, to only not follow it yourself?
It just had this happen this week. My client came in, we were talking about self-care, I had suggested that she take some time and do something nice for herself. The next afternoon, I had a client come in for a massage, when I asked her what brought her in, she said," My body was telling me this is what it needed". She took the time to listen to herself.

It seems so simple. I do my mediation, and do my herbals, for me its keeping up with my yoga and doing the gentle pampering s of taking time that I forget. So for me, it was a foot scrub! I am either on my feet or using  my feet in my Thai yoga massage, and they sometimes yell for a nice foot scrub.

So that's just what I did, a nice eucalyptus sugar scrub followed up with a tea tree lotion bar. My feet have been saying thank you all day.

So, what is your body sayin…

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…

#03 Self Care: Self Abhyanga
Winter is here! Snow, ice, warm fireplace, cozy blankets, hot cocoa and dry skin, oh my.
This is winter here in the New England area, dry, wet cold and is a challenge for our skin over the long winter months.
What to do? Well Ayurveda has this under control! 
A few ways Ayurveda helps in the winter: Eating warm grounding foods                    Do you remember when you where young and your mother or grandmother would make a stew or pot pie and left you feeling full and loved. Relaxing with warm foods in the cold dry weather helps keep you feel comfort, grounded and nourished through food. Nourishing foods keep the body strong,healthy and balanced the immune system.
Add ghee to your diet                    Ghee is the perfect winter soother. Ghee can be added to your foods to help lubricate the joints and moisten dry skin. Massaging the skin, lips, dry areas to relax, soothe and lubricate the skin and leave you glowing.
