Nettles and the many ways we use them at Metta Wellness


Yes, I love Nettle, and as you see I  featured them last week in my teas: 
Blueberry Nettle and Nettle with Rose-hip and Cinnamon chip. Both have the nourishment that we need in the change of season and are a great source of vit.C, not to mention they taste great.

You will also find nettle in my massage oil for the head and scalp massage(helps wake up the scalp while nourishing the pores, this oil is made right at Metta Wellness), along with my muscle oil for the Ayurvedic treatment Kati Basti.
 

Not sure what an Ayurvedic Kati Basti is?
Start off with an Abhyanga or a warm oil application, wrapped in warm towels you will rest while the oils soak into the area or areas that we are working.This treatment can be done on the low back, neck area, stomach and yes even for the eyes(different oils are used for the eye treatment), each one has its own herbalized oils that I make here at Metta Wellness, your oil could have up to 20 different herbs that are infused in your oils to work with the area or goal of your treatment.

What is the Kati Basti treatment, and what is it good for?
We will start with a pulse taking and work with you on a  personalized treatment plan /goal at your first consultation. This is where I am able to then add additional herbs to your oils, map out where we are placing your basti(herbalized damn) and what we are looking to achieve. This is also the time that I set up your tea for the ending of your treatment, you may need a cooling tea, or nourishing this is all based on your treatment, and your body type.


I blend teas, oils, salves, always learning new ways to bring the elements into the massage to balance and nourish my clients, my family, myself. Not sure how to start or where to start with your herbs, start simple, you could make a nettle tea, then look at Ayurveda treatments and all the herbs that are used their, create you own oils.

Stop by our space at Metta Wellness, or our on-line store at Metta Wellness Herbals and explore.

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…

Hi everyone, Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) teacher Rick Rocha here at Metta Wellness.

Start the New Year off with something new. If you have ever been curious about what Taijiquan is, this is a good place to begin. I will be teaching a course for beginners at Metta just after the New Year. This is a 6 week course, held on Saturdays from 10am to 11:30am. The course begins Jan. 5th through Feb. 9th. All adults welcome to register. The classes are simple to understand and you do not need to be athletic. Taijiquan uses gentle, simple movements to improve the body as well as the mind. You will learn a short Taijiquan form, Meridian Qigong and maybe even a little Mandarin Chinese.

What is "Metta Wellness"

Metta means "loving Kindness", Metta Wellness in your wellness in loving kindness. Bringing together the mind, body and spirit for a full circle of healing.

For me, I see that we all want, or strive to live in peace, harmony and balance with ourselves and the world around us. At Metta Wellness I feel it starts in the mind. The mind is a powerful element that can determine our peace and harmony. How we look at ourselves, our internal conversation, and the way we feel the world sees or views us. If we look at ourselves in pure loving kindness, we are going to walk out into the world full of love, inner strength and kindness.

With a healthy, positive and balanced mind, the body works in harmony. When we fall out of harmony in the mind the body will feel it through stress, inflammation, skin issues, anxiety over time this can result in an auto immune disorder. When the mind is struggling, and the body shares the disruption, the spirit disconnects.

When the mind, body and spirit…
