Do you remember these 1999 Massage prices?!
boy, how prices have become inflated in these 14 years!  Coffee, gas, houses, cars…oh my!

14 year anniversary is Ivory apparently.  I cannot believe I have been doing Massage for so long.  Some of you have been with me the entire time from getting free practice massages while I was at Brenneke School Of Massage, to the MarQueen Hotel where I rented a space at La Pelle Spa to the Acupuncture Clinic “Queen Anne Natural Health”, to my old space on Queen Anne Ave N. by Diablo coffee, to my current incarnation as Queen Anne Healing Arts on the crown of Queen Anne…Wow, what a long, strange trip it’s been…

Thank you so much for your continued support of my dream!

Business is better than ever, Saturdays are consistently full, with a growing waitlist, as one of my Saturday regulars said, “someone probably has to die for new clients to get in on a Saturday!”  Yes, I am truly loyal to my regulars who have continued to be in the Saturday loop! Yet, cancelations do happen, so if you’re trying to get in on a Saturday, just keep trying or give us a call and be added to the wait list…I also post cancelations on my Facebook page, so a great way to find out about openings is to follow my business page under Queen Anne Massage.

If you didn’t know about Tracy Pitcock, she has been offering Reiki on Sundays.  So far everyone loves her! She has generously offered 1/2 off her Reiki rate for the Anniversary sale, too.

Also, I am offering Reiki 1 classes once a month now.  It has been so fun and empowering! The next Reiki class is 3/16/13 and this class will focus on Reiki for Prosperity.  You can learn more about this on our Reiki page, I will have more details about this Prosperity Reiki class in an upcoming blog, too.

 

 

 

Quickening Moon Arising Monday 2/25/13

Moon Painting by Victoria Lystila

This wonderful Full Moon painting is used with permission by Victoria Lystila & you can see more of her artwork on her Facebook Page, I highly recommend following her, she is one truly gifted artist!
Monday 2/25/13 @ 3:26pm marks the Virgo Full Moon that is known as a Quickening Moon. In pregnancy terms, quickening is the moment in pregnancy when the mother starts to feel or perceive fetal movements in the uterus. Just like a prenatal mother, we may begin to feel urges arising for new projects, new desires and now is the time to set your plans. For a full moon ritual, I suggest writing your goals over this Quickening Moon phase. We are also entering Mercury Retrograde, which is nothing to fear, but a great time for reflection, meditation and regrouping. Get out that bulletin board and create a vision board of what you want to manifest in 2013, this is a very powerful seed planting time. In the Fall, you can reflect back on the goals you have set during the Quickening Full Moon & see if any of them came to harvest!
The Aromatherapy oil I am incorporating into my Quickening Full Moon is Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil. Oh I love this plant! I have also become fond of this amazing Rose Tulsi Tea, come on in & try it this month at Queen Anne Healing Arts, or buy it for yourself w/ the link below. The plant is an incarnation of the goddess Tulsi, who offers divine protection and love.  This holy plant comes from India, where families always grow in their courtyards to offer protection, health, long life and love for the family. Plus the list of health benefits is a mile long including weight loss, anti aging, immune boosting, cold cure and energy.

And if you need more energy this Full Moon…Tracy has generously offered to continue her 50% off Reiki discount for a few more weeks because she is truly enjoying all her new clients and wants to get to know even more of you! This is a great opportunity to try Reiki at half off (just $49!) You can schedule your Reiki Session with Tracy on Friday eves or all day Sunday. Take Dr. Oz’s advice & give Reiki a try soon before Tracy’s great Reiki deal is over!
You can schedule your Reiki session using the Schedule Appointment button or just give us a call.

NEXT REIKI 1 CLASS W/ REIKI ATTUNEMENT IS 3/16/13 & IT IS FILLING UP FAST, SO SIGN UP NOW OR YOU’LL MISS THIS CHANCE!

Fig Jam

Posted on: February 21st, 2013 by healing_arts_admin

Adriatic Figs grow in the NW

I can always tell when my Figs are ripe because the birds start having a Fig party, usually around 6 am, chirping with delight that the figs are juicy and ready…I have to jump out of bed and harvest as many as I can reach, I leave a ton on the top branches for the birds.

Figs are so good for you! Figs are loaded with minerals such as Potassium, calcium, manganese, copper, phosphorous and iron.  Plus they contain tons of fiber and  vitamin A, B1, B2 and B6.  Figs have historically been linked to increasing fertility and curing impotency.

You have to eat them quick, they don’t keep well, not even refrigerated.  So usually when I harvest my figs, I like to make fig jam right away.  Here is a great Fig jam recipe:

 

 

Fig jam

5-6 pounds figs, peeled and cut up

4-5 cups sugar depending on taste.  more makes a thicker jam but can be too sweet to me

3 cinnamon sticks whole

1/2 madagascar vanilla bean, cut

1/4 cup orange juice

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 lemon sliced

 

toss everything and boil down until it sets on a spoon about 3-4 hours and can in jam jars.

I hope you are enjoying 2013, February 10th begins the Year of the Water Snake.  Chinese Astrologers are excited for this year because it is the first year since 2002 that the element and the animal are harmonious, which will finally end a long 10 year cycle of disharmony.  It feels like things are getting better, maybe time to contribute to that IRA again…  I hope it is an auspicious year for you!
My quote for this year is from Saint Teresa (my namesake)
“The important thing is not to think much, but to LOVE much! so do that which best serves you to love…”
