When the therapist receives...

What a way to start the week, by giving back to yourself. A full body relaxation massage for replenishing me is exactly what was needed & to have this from a colleague & dear friend makes it even more special. You can find Banu on FB - @Banu Green Reflexology and Massage. Her energy & skills in massage, pulsing, reflexology & acupressure points make for a super divine bodywork session. Iโ€™m ready for the week ๐Ÿ™

"Compassion is a verb" Thich Nhat Hanh.

The past few days have reminded me of this quote. When we invite & allow compassion in for ourselves, this then naturally flows onto others. We all need a little more of that. Go gently ๐Ÿ™

Keep on moving, keep energy flowing... Breathe in deeply, feel yourself fully... Listen to the sounds around you, tune into what you hear within you... Be still, feel & acknowledge it all ๐Ÿ’–

How good it feels to walk along the beach again! My whole spirit has soaked every bit of it up, & my feet are super happy covered in sand & ocean waves. Total bliss ๐Ÿค— So thankful for this moment of clarity & calm ๐Ÿ™Happy weekend everyone x

Hey there lovely people! Level 2 here we come ๐Ÿค—

I have personally chosen to just wait a wee while longer before restarting bodywork. I'll keep you updated, but in the meantime if there's a day or time you'd prefer to book into, please let me know. In the meantime I'm sending a huge amount of aroha to colleagues getting back up & running and offering much needed self care!

Thank you for keeping in touch, I'm so appreciative of your love & support and really look forward to offering my services for you again very soon. May we all continue to show kindness, care & support for one another as we move forward - & let's collectively send huge waves of support for our local small businesses ๐Ÿ™

Yup, that's me getting a good grounding ๐Ÿ˜

Our move up to Level 3 still means I'm unable to offer & provide bodywork - but I've been exploring the possibilities once we get back to Level 2. To be honest, I'm unsure how this might look. But I'm working on it! I'm so passionate about selfcare, well-being & supporting our local businesses - and golly don't we all need this right now?

I'm so aware of the hardships & challenges people have been living through. And my hope is that we all collectively emerge a better version of ourselves; being more mindful of community and living with full hearts. Let's commit to showing up for each other - humble & authentic x

๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ‹Autumnal shades are showing off here in Aotearoa. We've had 4wks of enforced retreat so far (aka lockdown), & I'm feeling so blessed to be in this wee part of the world.

Autumn is a time of rest, regeneration & of slowing down with cooler days & an opportunity to harvest & enjoy our seasonal fruit & vege. And how fitting it is to be living through our enforced retreat at this time of reflection - while we collectively endeavour to break the chain of Covid's transmission around the world.

Whilst there are stories of horror, significant loss and desperation, there are also those of hope, resilience & the testament of the human spirit. And it is through this lens, that I lean towards the beauty in nature, the impact of small acts of kindness & the gratefulness of right now. So let's remain grounded, hold onto faith & keep connected. We're still all in this together ๐Ÿ˜Š

What are you discovering during this time? ๐Ÿค”

I created a manifestation board on day 1 of our enforced retreat. It sits on the fridge, as a daily reminder & 'tune in'. But over the past weeks I've been really challenged by uncertainty, while also experiencing beautiful, grateful moments, meditating, and having some deep soul searching. And you know what's great to know - mixed emotions are completely understandable & expected.

So while there's a wealth of 'positivity' out there, I also do real! It's important to acknowledge this. Know that each day brings different vibes for all of us. Hoping today is feeling gentle for you ๐Ÿ™

Aah, my wee clinic room - I miss you so. But while I'm not there, I'm able to offer relaxation within my 'bubble' (and they're not complaining). Viewing this time as sacred, as our lives are usually diarised to the full. A time to re-energize & to remind ourselves of good health, loving family, friends, community & safe spaces ๐Ÿ˜Š

Om Mani Padme Hum ๐Ÿ™

Its day 9 of our enforced retreat from Covid-19 in Aotearoa. And over the past 9 days, I've spent time re-evaluating life, checking in with family & friends - whilst deepening my meditation practices. I'm not sure how you've been feeling, but I've caught myself having moments of being out of alignment and not grounded. It sure is a pretty profound time right now, but one that is also reaffirming my spiritual centredness.

May we all truly be kind as we traverse this ongoing, unfamiliar territory. And may we continue to reach out to others to support, whilst also taking mindful care of ourselves.

Whilst I miss being 'hands on' at Solace, I'm being reminded to remain present. For this is the only moment we ever have ๐Ÿ™

Walking meditation brings such groundedness; which is particularly supportive during this pandemic. When you're out walking next (maintaining your 2 metre bubble, in your local community) take the time to breathe - truly & mindfully deeply breathe. Notice the flowers ๐ŸŒป, the leaves๐ŸŒฟ, the colours you see๐ŸŒˆ & the teddy's in the windows ๐Ÿป. Feel the sensations through your body as you move๐Ÿค—. We forget how many are unable to do this - for those who are unwell, or in hospital can't just get out & enjoy this experience. May we all be grateful of what we can do right now ๐Ÿ’›

Day 1 of lockdown in Aotearoa. While we bunk down in solidarity, to slow down Covid-19's spread; may we send love & gratitude to those in essential services worldwide. Humanity is being tested for sure.

Loving the shared sense of community right now. Even though we're all physically distanced, we're never really alone. From my family to yours ###

My clinic door may be temporarily closed - but my heart isn't.

These are extraordinary times, needing extraordinary measures to help flatten that curve. My hope is that we continue to care, show kindness & above all remain calm. It's not what happens to us; rather how we respond.

So keep those hygiene practices high & if you're unwell please stay at home & away from others. Being a former ICU nurse, I'm all too aware of what Covid-19 can do (as we're seeing overseas). Let's come together as community - check in on your neighbours, support small local businesses, & keep practicing mindfulness. Love & blessings to all x

Kia ora lovely people - in light of the current Covid-19 situation, I will be taking a break from providing services until April. Believe me, this informed decision has been carefully considered, and will be reconsidered as time evolves.
Up to date information re: Covid-19 can be found via the Ministry of Health. Please keep informed with the facts from reputable sources, and not only look after yourself, but others who may be living alone and require some support. Let's keep community at the forefront & keep caring for each other during uncertain times ๐Ÿฅฐ

health.govt.nz The Government's principal advisor on health and disability: improving, promoting and protecting the health of all New Zealanders

Reflexology research is on the rise & I'm pretty excited about that. I personally love a bit of evidence based data. Studies, particularly over the past 5yrs are showing how Reflexology can positively impact for those post-operatively, during pregnancy, in oncology and palliative care settings & more.

I feel so hopeful about how health is becoming more holistic & that complementary therapies are becoming more integrated. We have so much to learn from gentle, ancient practices - and the value of robust research to support this can not be underestimated. Thank you to all the nurses, Reflexologists, doctors, midwives, etc who contribute to this growing body of evidence for the benefit of all.

๐Ÿ’š Life is always full of change & unexpected events. But we need not react in a fearful, heightened way (as challenging as that may be).

Sometimes we're reminded to slow down or stop & return to the breath. In our ever increasing world of disconnection, humanity needs our collective mindfulness more than ever right now. May peace, kindness & caring be our way ๐Ÿ™โœŒ

solacebodywork.co.nz Welcome to Solace Bodywork, where you can find your ability to re-balance in response to lifeโ€™s daily demands. Kelly woods is an Auckland based practitioner in reflexology, reiki and relaxation massage. Empowering you to reclaim and maintain your wellbeing.

Let's talk about these gorgeous structures - your feet ๐Ÿ˜‰

Each foot is comprised of 26 bones & supported by an intricate system of ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscle, fascia, skin, nerve, lymph & blood supply. Not to mention nails too.... Wow! No wonder Leonardo da Vinci said "the human foot is a masterpiece of engineering & a work of art".

So no surprises that their flexibility, comfort & function depends on many factors. And if they're unhappy, your body sure will tell you.

Giving them shoe-free time, allowing them a stretch & elevating them, treating them to a foot soak, moisturising & having well fitted shoes can certainly help. And you know a foot massage with Reflexology takes them to a whole new level of care. Psst - your feet are waiting... ๐Ÿค—

#solacebodywork #reflexology #foothealth #happyfeet #relaxationmassage #timeforyou #nurtureyourbody

Inhale slowly (1, 2, 3, 4), hold that breath (1, 2, 3, 4) & exhale slowly (1, 2, 3, 4) - repeat....

Not every day goes our way does it. But every day we get opportunities to practice & embody how we react to life. Returning to breath is one of the most tried and true ways we can do this.

Try it on for size next time you catch yourself out of alignment - you may be pleasantly surprised by how calming this simple act can be. Remember to be kind & gentle with yourself & others.

๐Ÿ’กENERGY๐Ÿ’ก

We're all energetic beings, made up of vibrational energy. It's simply everywhere - within us, around us & we're interacting with it constantly.

Ever walked into a meeting room & picked up on the vibes ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ, or walked along the beach & felt so refreshed ๐Ÿค—, or rubbed your hands together to generate heat ๐Ÿ˜ฎ? Well what you're feeling is energy. We may not be able to see it, but it sure is there. And what we see, listen, say & believe holds energy too ๐Ÿค”

The ancient body arts tell us how important energy flow is for health, through working with the meridians, chakras, sound, colour, electromagnetic fields and so many more. When energy flows within us, we're more able to remain balanced & nourish our health. It's a super important aspect of my practice, in supporting your wellbeing, and being integrated around the westernised world more & more. Our ancient ancestors knew a thing or two ๐Ÿ˜‰
