Massage for the Immune System

During the long winter months, hot dry summers, day to day of bills, work, family life, we take from our immune system. Some of us go through life with limited stress, or a relaxed view and have found a way to work with our environments.Stress is not always a bad thing, some stress comes from change, or a new job, moving into a new home. Wherever the stresses come in, they can take a toll from the body, so learning, or having ways to calm and relax the mind body will help how you approach stress.

Stress over time is packed away in the body and without ways to relax(some of us it is our personality are calming) it can build up over time. This build up can come out through headaches, constipation, anger, sleep issues and overtime create autoimmune issues.

My work brings me to a space that I can share meditation,massage, Ayurvedic herbs , Ayurvedic body-work and Thai massage with my clients. Learning together and working towards a wellness goal is such a powerful way to focus on balancing the stress and strengthening the immune system.

So when your looking at your wellness routine, look at massage as a tool for helping the body continue on a healthy path and strengthening the immune. Overtime with massage it continues to allow the body to unpack the stuff the stress of the everyday.

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…

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…
