Daily Self Care Practices

Is there someone that you care about deeply and it hurts you to see them in discomfort or pain?

Why not give them the gift of health and healing this holiday season.

 

Purchase them a gift certificate for a private session with me - and give them the gift of knowledge to reduce or resolve their own pain?

We have a question for you – Do you maintain your body as well as you maintain your car? If your car is vibrating when you drive over 60 km an hour what do you do?

Do you think a wash and polish will help? No.

How about a higher leaded gasoline?  Of course not!

The answer is that you would take it to a mechanic immediately to get to the root of the problem and get it resolved as quickly as possible, so you don’t get stranded on the highway one day on your way to work.

I am so overjoyed to announce the launch of www.resolvepainguru.com our new comprehensive online resource site with programs courses, videos and live events to help you reduce and resolve pain anytime, anywhere, from the comfort of your own home.

Check out our mission video below.

Stress creates disease - the art of listening heals

Our physiology has equipped us with the ability to fight, flight or freeze in the face of imminent danger. This natural autonomic response served us well in pre-historic times. After the danger was over, we settled back into a rest and digest, nervous system response. But today it’s a different story.

Today our lifestyles, work habits, poor postural habits and weakened resiliency mean that the threats to our nervous system health are exponential – leaving us chronically overstimulated.

The science of Ayurveda and the 6 pillars of balanced living outline many easy to adopt practices that have a large impact on our health and well-being.

The first time I was introduced to the concept of drinking warm lemon water on rising was from a Naturopath specializing in woman's health. She had a strong focus on digestion, and looking back I could swear she was schooled in some Ayurvedic methodology.

Sesame Oil: More than just a seasoning

Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, invigorates the skin, our largest organ, enhances blood circulation and the release of accumulated toxins. Oiling nourishes and soothes our tired nervous systems, promoting cleansing, detoxification and grounding. This is a must practice for all.
