As we adjust to the heatwave happening during our British Summer how are you coping with the physical changes our bodies are going through? Are you glad to be able to enjoy air conditioning? Or are you simply taking more showers?

During the Tibetan Yoga Coaching sessions part of the approach has been to tune into our breath and cool the body by encouraging our minds to pay attention to our environment be that the chair we sit on, the floor, a mat we rest on, cushions we use to support us etc. whilst also appreciating the gentle caress of the air against our skin. This ability to shift our focus to beneficial intentions can provide a calming balm to the strains of oppressive Summer heat. Also being able to understand that, as we are meeting everyday life demands, we can unwittingly slip into less nurturing states.

Taking the time to reconnect with our mental wealth, emotional wellbeing, physical health and inner compass initially my take a concerted effort, especially if these approaches are unfamiliar. Restorative techniques like Acupuncture can help us make these transitions by returning harmonious rhythmic flows to our body. Whilst the skilled nonjudgmental therapeutic touch of Reflexology can guide us to life enhancing choices which nurture our long term health.

Keeping a diverse mix of options available to you such as group activities like South London yoga, nonverbal treatments like Reflexology and Acupuncture, giving yourself time to enjoy restful phases, loving conversations with friends, family or even someone who you pass by, shows we are investing value in our ability to constructively release barriers caused by excessive physical tensions. Staying connected with our inner guidance can give us clarity of intention and with the intense stimulation of modern times, offers life affirming experiences to build on.

Completing a Chakra balancing visualisation course was as challenging as it was rewarding, I rediscovered my enjoyment of learning about things which excite me. It’s also provided helpful tools with which to navigate through our human experiences. After all make daily choices on innumerable matters, be they mundane like whether to swat a fly or guide it out of your space or on more profound considerations of love laughter power status control etc. Having deeper insight into how our emotions colour our inner landscapes has me wondering about the effects of life's challenges on our health and how my work as a therapeutic practitioner, I can be best placed to encourage emotional well being for myself, my clients and people I may encounter as I go about my day.

We are now fully into summer and I’m seeing many clients who may exercise regularly but are looking to be helped with shifting into restorative and replenishing mindsets. Because our physical wellbeing can be closely linked to our feelings, gaining clearer insights into how well we’re able to move on from daily challenges is an invaluable skill to develop. Through Reflexology and Acupuncture, changes happen that enables your muscle memory to reconnect with beneficial levels of rest. These are safe, structured and efficient methods to reach deeper levels of detox and cleansing. Generally the longer it takes to feel soothingly relaxed by the therapeutic touch of Reflexology or subtly stabilised by Acupuncture or perhaps have a more harmonious sense of self through South London yoga sessions, to breath into balancing between activity and the sense of liberation to be found in inactivity, the more you benefit there could be in changing the pace of your life to rediscover the bounty of beauty when we refresh our inner wellness outlook.

Who said relaxing was easy? As with most habits they can soon become automatic reactions.

Shifting our brainwaves between different rhythms often throws up not only physical resistance like comfort eating, suddenly needing to clean, chat to close ones, watch TV and more but its these various scenarios playing out in our minds which can lead to a potentially endless list of avoidance actions. How we choose to respond to those stories in our minds are the threads weaving our daily experiences. The way we relate between our head and body, our breath, toes, with friends, colleagues and so on are things which shape us.

Recently I started a short meditation course and as keen as I am to get involved with the program I found adjusting to my new timetable challenging. The changes I eventually made gave me deeper awareness of how the stories we follow in our mind weaves together our daily experiences. The way we relate to work or even to the person at the supermarket checkout matters, giving these moments attentive care or adopting a neutral approach has a cumulative impact on ourselves and those around us. So what is it you’d like to create with your actions?

This month although a complete novice, I’d wanted to prune a plumb tree for some time. Planning, having effective tools and awaiting the right weather conditions was essential. Then once it was pruned in the following weeks, the trees response was to flourish.

Similarly gifting yourself the time to release unhelpful reactions through South London Yoga, restful Reflexology or Acupuncture builds resilience from which fluid transitions unfold between our urges to be active and our capacity to repair, rejuvenate and renew. Allowing us to smartly cultivate the valuable time we choose to spend working, playing or resting.

April 2018
Adjusting to Spring and it’s transformative potential means tapping into our understanding of how life is less about struggling to survive and more a dance where we’re learning to thrive. Regularly clients come for treatment saying they’d like me to focus on a specific problem maybe neck, shoulder, pelvic, back pain or they don’t know what they want but simply to feel better, then by the close of treatment find relief from discomfort they’d only been vaguely aware of. Often articulating what’s causing health issues isn’t necessary but accessing solutions which consistently prove they work for you is crucial.

Through this process I’ve been turning around my own chronic health problems and over time have given up habits that’s brought up a lot of resistance in me. Which is why when clients feel safe enough to let go of assumptions and embrace opportunities for self renewal we look at planning follow up treatments to help make tangible their worth on personal as well as general health levels. Regularly experiencing the transformative benefits of Tibetan Yogas, Acupuncture, Reflexology anchors us to a sense of resilience, so even challenging situations, do not have to overwhelm.

Understanding how to give up fighting, letting go of over stimulation and rejoining the dance of life is where disarmament, reflection and renewal becomes more than just desirable.

After all we live on a rock that has a molten centre and hurtles through the vastness of this solar system whilst reacting to our Sun, a star which can be seen as a nuclear reaction offering life giving properties. These along with innumerable other factors such as more easy access to unfolding events via social media, means having congenial points of reference within ourselves, beyond the digital, offers balancing ways to build sustainable quality from our life experiences.
Who said relaxing was easy? As with most habits once familiar they can soon become automatic reactions.

Shifting our brainwaves between different rhythms often throws up not only physical resistance like suddenly needing to clean, chat to close ones, watching TV.

March 2018
In the Northern hemisphere we pass the Equinox and are gifted with significant shifts towards increased daylight. Many including me will be glad of this change of climate. At Springtime nature surges to reaffirm new ways of being and the fecundity of life is displayed in abundance. The different shapes we shift into and out of during Tibetan Yoga coaching sessions reflect the seasonal change of pace by offering us fresh chances to observe how we release stagnation be they emotional, physical or psychological. These sessions are designed to increase confidence through movement by testing how willing we are to safely engage muscle groups usually given little attention. Finding an individual flow through the yoga postures is counter balanced by timely moments of rest. Allowing our natural repair, renew and rejuvenation processes to engage and come to the fore. At the same time our over worked adrenal system gets respite from our almost incessant need to be active.

It’s said most communications between people is non verbal so mindful observations of how we react to yoga tasks helps to give you a fuller sense of self awareness as well as emotional intelligence in our encounters with others. Being watchful and lacking judgment of our self talk helps with negotiating the complex challenges that makes up urban living. Be these preconceived assumption about how we look and what this might or might not say about our character. By prioritising self enhancing values like regular reflexology acupuncture, yoga, diverse cardiovascular programs, other body work treatments, spending time in nature we gain greater discernment for tuning into our inner compass. As we take actions to be the architecture in our own lives we honour our need to harness support systems necessary to pursue what we hold dear or more simply just to be.

How did you fair over the holidays, is it taking time to adjust and shift gears back into regular routines or have you already moved on, maybe even trying out fresh ideas for this New Year.

Recently during a spontaneous chat with a taxi driver about tackling deeply ingrained dehydration, I realised during our short trip with heavy food shopping that for now eating alkaline foods are great choices for me. Along with profoundly better hydration I’ve improved my quality of sleep and am better able to pace myself throughout the day. And yes I do go to the bathroom more its true but for me that’s a good thing.

Feedback from medium term cycle clients tells me the changes I’ve made helps me to keep on track with connecting to their essential expectations from their Clapham reflexology and acupuncture treatments. Through my varying the pace of how I work with clients, prioritising helping to create spaces within which gently shift between relaxation, balance and energised qualities. It’s by providing bespoke blends of different styles appointments give you a range of mood changing experiences.

By starting this New Year embracing it’s transformative potential through the nurturing benefits of acupuncture and the body conditioning improvements of regular reflexology there’s sustainable help for you to embody marked change. Alongside these the cleansing power of water, be it plain, coconut or water combined with foods like cucumber, limes, lemons etc can bring about growth.

So far, what’s making these choices been like for you, particularly when faced with developments potentially contrary to your resolved intensions? By responding in fresh ways along with the supportive healing power of the therapeutic encouragement offered by Clapham reflexology and acupuncture treatments, you’ll be assisted as you shape this year into one best suited to fulfilling your needs.

December 2017
At this time of year we may have many demands made of us and our time challenged by competing needs, all of which can tax our energies.
By talking with Clapham reflexology and acupuncture clients, there’s an emerging theme of a common desire to pursue a mixed approach to maintaining health priorities during the festive season. These balancing processes which may come about through trial and error could tests where our individual lines are to be drawn. In some ways these are also times where we might find out how our choices over the recent past sustains our resolve in the face of the range of festive expectations both from our self and others. If you’re also living with chronic health conditions are you planning to loosen up a little or perhaps finding tones which keeps you relatively well and connected to the spirit of these times.

On top of the usual festive considerations we in the northern hemisphere are settling into winter. We occupy a more shallow angle to the sun, bringing us shorter day light and a drop in temperature. A time for slowing down as even the most familiar things like going around in our local neighbourhood can with the potential for snow, ice or just the cold can seem to take longer to achieve.

With all these changes to the rhythm of days to negotiate Clapham reflexology and acupuncture offers antidotes which help us to regain our equilibrium and reboot us into our more vibrant grounded self. Given the potential for emotional challenges between now and the end of the year proactively receiving or giving gifts of reflexology and acupuncture can remind us of our brilliance whilst acting as essential pathways helping us stay in touch with all we hold most dear.
