RELAXATION DAY

RELAXATION DAY

Saturday 8/15/15 is Relaxation Day!

Sometimes I feel so lazy on my Sundays off but then I look at my cat & think I could be even lazier! Maybe take a cat nap, follow his lead, just do what Frankie said &

RELAX!

And remember Amy has a great Massage special for $33 off your first Massage with her on SUNDAYS! Of course Massage tops the list for ways to relax!  here's some other ways:

8 Great Ways to RELAX

(see if you can accomplish all of these relaxation techniques today!!!)

    1. Massage increases relaxation by increasing oxytocin, the feel good hormone!  It also reduces cortisol, the stress hormone.  Studies have shown that getting one massage a month helps you relax and improves immune function by increasing Natural Killer (NK) cells.
    2. Walk.  Sneak out of the office or house and go for a long walk!  Walking releases endorphins, reduces stress and is my favorite way (next to massage) to relax.  Pay attention to all the sights, sounds sensations on your walk, allow yourself to be immersed and forget about anything that may have been worrying you.  Thich Nhat Hahn has this walking meditation: The mind can go in a 1,000 directions, but on this beautiful path I walk in peace.  With each step, a gentle wind blows, with each step, a flower blooms.
    3.  Garden gardening is like therapy you can eat! Grow vegetables, fruit and flowers.  There is something so relaxing about having your hands in the soil.  If all you have is a windowsill, you can still grow herbs and flowers.  It’s uplifting to see plants growing and blooming before your eyes.
    4. Cat NAPS!  Also releases Oxytocin plus Dopamine both feel good, 20 minutes is best, more than that you can mess up your sleep cycles for nighttime sleeping.
    5. Chocolate is a mood elevator!  Dark chocolate also release oxytocin, now health studies have shown it’s good for your heart!
    6. Epsom Salt Bath  Light some candle, sink into a hot Epsom Salt Bath with some soothing Aromatherapy such as Lavender, Ylang Ylang or geranium.  The Epsom Salts will soften all the fascia in your muscles, release lactic acid and detoxify you, ahhh relaxing!
    7. Mantras.  Say my favorite Mantra whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, “It doesn’t Matter!” because truly if you have your health, family is healthy, no one is bleeding, everything else really does.not.matter!  Don’t stress the small stuff, it’s all small stuff!
    8.  Breathe and Meditate….Imagine a warm,  orange colored liquid pouring into the top of your head, flowing down through your body, bathing every cell in a warm, orange glowing light, allow it to disentigrate any negativity.

Reiki_Training_7/26/14

Posted on: July 17th, 2014 by healing_arts_admin
Reiki_Fire Next Introductory Reiki Class is 1st Degree Reiki Saturday, 7/26/14 9am-5pm this class is 8 Massage/bodywork CE's. People seem to be drawn to Reiki, like we are drawn to campfires! It is fascinating to see the reasons that bring people to their first Reiki class : looking for ways to heal themselves or a loved one, looking for transformation of their life, looking to add a powerful new tool to their healing toolbox, wanting to increase their energetic vibration, wanting ways to fill their own well when giving to others (Reiki is so great for caregivers, to self heal with self Reiki and re-charge!) Some of the many benefits of taking a Reiki class are: • Reiki Attunement increases your healing abilities • Self Reiki improves sleep • Reiki reduces stress and tension • Self Reiki decreases severity & occurrence of headaches/migraines • Self Reiki can reduce acute and chronic pain • Reiki Attunement is incredibly detoxifying • A Reiki Attunement can improve immune function • Self Reiki can help you heal from illness or surgery • Reiki creates calmness, improving emotional well being • Reiki empowers positive change in emotional, mental, spiritual and physical well being. • Reiki can increase Abundance by increasing your energetic vibration to receive & attract. • I've even seen Reiki help students attract their true Love! I honestly believe a Reiki class is an incredible bargain, considering you get a Reiki Attunement, which is a lifetime of healing capacity put into the palm of your hands. In addition to that, the second half of the day gives you an amazing healing session! When students do the hands on Reiki healings for eachother, depending on the class, you may have 4 or 5 students all laying healing Reiki hands on you, students receiving this kind of Reiki treatment just seem to glow, often their faces get rosy pink, they become so beautiful, relaxed and they have this incredible expression of deep trance. For the price of the class ($185) you get a Reiki Attunement plus some of the most powerful Reiki treatments you will ever get in your life. Once you have completed Level 1 Reiki and you have completed the 21 day cycle of transformation, you are eligible to take Reiki 2 class & also join our Reiki circles.
