Make a change!

We change all the time. We grow, we develop, we evolve.
Sometimes seamlessly. Sometimes with a bit of resistance or reluctance.

Sometimes we know there’s a need for change but it can feel like a big step we’re not sure we want to take.

If we ignore that feeling though, it will continue to linger. It’s in the back of your mind every day. It’s there as we go through the same daily routines that become less and less exciting, less enjoyable, fill you with less and less joy.

From time to time, we may benefit from re-visiting who we are and what we want out of life, what we want to experience. The things we put into place in perhaps our 20s may well not be the right fit for us in our 30s, 40s or 50s.

As we move through the seasons of our lives, as we discover more about ourselves, what would we like to change? What would make us happy now?
- How we want to live.
- Where we want to live.
- Is it time for a career change?
- What we wear.
- What ignites our passions?
- Maybe even how we experience love.

All of these things change over time.

They can feel like easy, exciting changes but they can also feel daunting.

If you’re struggling with the idea of change at any time, consider this. Imagine your life as it is, continuing for the next 10 years and beyond. What feelings does that bring for you?

Then imagine life after making the changes that are in the back of your mind. Now imagine your life 10 years down the line. How does that make you feel?

If you can feel a difference that you like, then it’s up to you. What can you do to start that ball rolling? No one else can make these changes for you however if you’d like a little help along the way, get in touch and we’ll get started on making those changes in your life to make it a better fit with who you are now.

Water Peace Project

LOVE & GRATITUDE - “Obtaining the crystal of ‘Love and Thanks’ changed my vision of the cosmos. I realize that these words formed the most beautiful crystal of any taken to this date. The concept of love and thanks is the idea behind the universe. God’s benevolent intention. I was shown in a real, pure, and profound vision that the active energy of love and the passive energy of thanks resonate together, and that this is how the universe was created. “
~ Masaru Emoto - The Message From Water

#WeAreWater #loveandgratitude #MasaruEmoto

[12/02/20]   Sometimes the simplest gestures of kindness can truly impact on a person and have a longer lasting effect than you could possibly imagine.

This is me and I’m amazing!

A therapy session doesn’t just have to identify what’s wrong.
It can also be amazing to find out what you’re good at. The characteristics that make you special. Your true nature. What makes you tick that you’ve perhaps not fully recongnised or honoured till now.

Join me on a journey into discovering who you truly are.

Why you process situations in the way that you do.

Why you’re passionate about issues that others possibly are not.

Why you’re drawn to a certain style or area of work life.

Why you choose to spend your time focused on the interests and hobbies that make you happy and how to do more of this in your life.

How to incorporate these things more fully into your day to day life in ways that are more aligned with you who you really are.

Obstructions or solutions?

Just something to think about…..

Theta Healing

For the time being, I’ll be stepping back from massage appointments but please do get in touch if you’re interested in a ThetaHealing® session or Akashic Record reading.
Never underestimate the power of our thoughts on the physical self…..

Do anything that makes you happy and healthy folks.

Our physical thoughts…

As a body worker and a talking therapy worker, I’m always very aware of the connection between our thoughts and our bodies.

All the thoughts, feelings, emotions and reactions that you ignore, pretending aren’t there….. they don’t go away just because we don’t acknowledge them. They build up and they present in our reactions to life situations or in our physical selves. It’s their way of trying to get our attention.

They’re in the aches and pains you just woke up with. They’re in the sore heads you’ve been having a lot of lately. In the aching joints that you think might be because you’re getting older, the unexplained discomfort or pain no one can seem to give you a reason for.

Sometimes, we might distract ourselves with all the tests and trying all the meds hoping someone, maybe, gives you the reason.

What if the easier way was actually to stop ignoring it all and just deal with what your body is trying to tell you?

We’re not always the best at facing up to these things but it feels a heck of a lot better to deal with the issues and move forward in life without having to carry all that around.

If you’d like my assistance in giving this a go please do get in touch. Nothing you say in a session will offend me, nothing you say will be judged and who knows what far reaching benefits it could have on your life. It might just be easier than you think!

Good news for massage!

Hello all. Massage has now been given the go ahead to restart!

At the moment I'm working hard to put everything in place that's needed to keep all of us safe. I'm sure you can appreciate that with this comes with quite a few changes so please do bear with me and look out for updates.

If you see me for appointments in my private clinic, I'll be sending out email updates soon about booking appointments.

Take care all and have a great weekend

[07/10/20]   Massage Update.

As restrictions begin to ease, updates on massage therapy are emerging.

Last week, a certain level of massage qualification was given the go ahead to return to work in Scotland as of Monday. Yesterday the Scottish Government revoked this.

Today, therapists in England and Wales have been given a re-start date but as of right now, it still stands that no Scottish massage therapist of any level is currently ok to work. Therefore no massage therapist is insured to see clients in person. Even beauty therapists, even though they can go back to work for certain treatments, are not permitted to provide massage to any of their customers.

The issues being considered are the close proximity and the length of time spent in one room with each person.

Once things change, I will let you know.

Hope everyone is happy and well and enjoys their weekend.

What are the less obvious signs of stress?

We’re all familiar I’m sure, of the usual signs of stress such as the feeling of being overwhelmed, not sleeping well, irritability but what about the sneaky signs? The ones we might not put together as us being under stress.

There could be individual signs, there could be a whole cycle of them running back to back, week to week, day to day. Over a prolonged phase of this, we may not know why our emotions, behaviours, thinking and physical selves are shifting through so many changes so rapidly and without obvious reason.

Our natural stress response is the fight or flight action. We experience a stressor, we deal with it, our system naturally calms down. But prolonged periods of stress can put us on an emotional rollercoaster. We’ll go through three stages of responding:

1. The Alarm, the stressor, the incident that starts it all
2. Resistance, the stage where we feel uncomfortable, angry, sad, overwhelmed
3. Exhaustion, we become depleted in the hormones our bodies use to recover from stress

These stages can either involve one, many, or all of the symptoms in a cycle.

Clearly, none of us want to be life our lives like this so below is a list of symptoms you may be experiencing. The purpose of this is simply to provide an explanation as to why you may be experiencing certain physical issues, mood swings, a lack of energy.

So what do you do if you feel you’re in this cycle? Acknowledging it is a great start. Take a look at what’s going on in your life that can or needs to change. Do you need to allow yourself more down time? Do you need to get back to your exercise that you’ve not done for a while? Do you need to start saying no to some things or other people’s requests? Is there a therapy session available right now your feel would help? Do you need a good catch up with that mate that makes you laugh?

Sneaky signs:
Feeling powerless
Feeling uncertain about everything
Feeling stuck
Feeling abandoned
Excessive worry or fear
Constant anger
Resentment
Boredom
Sleep pattern is off
Relationship issues
Exhaustion
Always feeling tired
Everyone annoys you
Unusual skin issues
Difficulty concentrating
More aches and pains that normal
Changes in your appetite
Hair loss
Dramatic weight changes
Persistent headaches
A want to isolate yourself
Teeth grinding or clenching
Stomach issues

Hi folks,

I hope you’re all well and taking good care of yourselves.

I thought I’d send a quick update in terms of massage sessions and in person appointments as I’ve just had my latest official update.

At the moment, there’s no date set which allows sessions to re-start but realistically it’s looking like another few months with things being as they are.

I’m expecting there’ll be a few changes which I’ll update you of nearer the time as things are changing so quickly in terms of advice and practice requirements.

Remember though that online ThetaHealing® sessions are of course still available and there’s those new pages on my website that might be of interest:
- How to take care of your physical self 2020
- How to take care of your mental and spiritual self 2020.

Take care everyone.
Do anything that makes you happy, healthy and well.

I hope to see you all again very soon.

Physical help for 2020

I hope you're all well and taking care of yourselves and your loved ones.

There's obviously things we can't do right now such as going for therapeutic sessions but looking after ourselves is especially important right now.

I've compiled a few hints and tips for you to try so please do take a look at my pages to see if anything could help you in some way just now.

There's some things to help with physical self-care, mental and spiritual self care and a ThetaHealing® meditation you can listen to.

23/03/2020

Today I was reminded of something I posted back in 2018.

Incredibly relevant right now for all those who are providing essential services for us all at their own risk …..

Saying thank you!

When someone provides a service for you, it’s generally expected that you’ll say thank you out of politeness.

But is this an automatic response or do you really thank that person, actually take the time and effort to really mean it?

Next time, make the effort to actually look that person in the eye and connect with them when you say thank you. Take the time at the end of a call to really thank them for their help and assistance.

You may be surprised at how it feels to you and that little bit of extra effort and appreciation might just make that person’s day.

Hello all,

As you’re very aware, the world is going through a massive change at the moment.

I’ve sent out an email of updates to my clients but incase for some reason I’ve not been able to contact you, I’m posting it here too.

Unfortunately, due to current professional restrictions, I’m unable to offer massage sessions at this time.

ThetaHealing® and Akashic Record readings can of course continue online or phone.

Feel free to message me via my page or email at [email protected] with any questions or concerns you may have.

If you are an existing massage client and develop any issues which we would normally address in a session, please do get in touch and I’ll do my best to offer any advice that can help.

Keep any eye out on my website and page for any self-help tips I will be posting.

If you’ve studied ThetaHealing with me, I will be sending out a separate update. Please do get in touch if for any reason you don’t receive this in the next few days. Also, if you’ve studied ThetaHealing but not with myself and you’d like that update, please do let me know.

Be kind to yourself as you’re asked to spend more time at home.

Be kind to your loved ones as you’re asked to spend more time with them and them with you!

Take care everyone.

Do anything that makes you happy, healthy and well.

I hope to see you all again very soon.

Vicky
