Reflexology has a very long history, over 4,000 years and has been used to facilitate natural healing by relaxing your body, reducing your pain, stress and tension. Reflexology just may be the answer you are looking for.
The reflexology techniques are special (massage) techniques designed to stimulate the reflex areas of the feet or ears to bring about a profound relaxation. The resulting reduction of stress and tension creates in your body the capacity for it to revitalize and rejuvenate itself.
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of “imbalance” and vital body systems can be blocked, preventing the body from functioning optimally.
Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural balance and facilitate healing. For each person, the application and the effect of the therapy are unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances and by working on these points, the Reflexologist can release these blockages.
Reflexology is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available.
History Of Light Therapy
Ancient Egyptians are said to have built special temples for healing with sunlight and coloured light. Pythagoras used colour for healing five hundred years before the birth of Christ. Reference to colour healing can be found in ancient Chinese and Indian text.
Neils Ryberg Finsen was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in treating skin tuberculosis with ultra-violet light.
Russian scientist Gurwitsch hypothesized that all cells emitted light. It took until the late seventies before German biophysicists (Popp et al.) proved that every cell emits at least 100,000 light impulses per second at a variety of frequencies.
NASA applied the use of light emitting diodes (LED)-based light therapy units for healing wounds in astronauts (wounds take longer to heal in zero-gravity conditions).
In 2002, the US FDA (Food & Drug Administration) cleared blue-light therapy for acne treatment.
In 2012, Vancouver General Hospital started using light therapy and cut post-surgery infections by 39%.
What is Light Therapy?
Light energy is essential to life because it provides powerful support to the body’s natural healing processes. Polychromatic LED light energy, delivered via light emitting diodes at various wavelengths, penetrates tissue at different depths, and is naturally absorbed by the cells to assist in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), energy required for cell repair and regeneration.
Light Therapy is the application of red, infrared and blue lights that increase wellbeing and quality of life by reducing inflammation and pain.
Light therapy stimulates the release of nitric oxide from hemoglobin into the blood stream where it dilates the blood vessels, allowing more blood flow through the vessels that will bring more Oxygen and nutrients to the area that is being applied to. Increased nitric oxide in the body has many benefits such as increases circulation, anti-inflammatory, tissue regeneration and body contouring, reduces pain and stress, improves sleep, stimulates lymphatic drainage, increases sensation, increases the range of motion, promotes wound healing and overall a sense of wellbeing.

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occuring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. These compounds are small organic molecules that tend to change quickly from their solid or liquid state to a gas at room temperature. They are called volatile because they change their state quickly. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and healthcare practices. The physical and chemical properties of the volatile aromatic compounds that compose essential oils allow them to quickly move through the air and directly interact with the olfactory sensors in the nose. Such unique properties make essential oils ideal for applications such as aromatherapy. These compounds from plants offer multiple health benefits for our bodies such as reducing anxiety, improving sleep, increasing energy, clearing the brain fog, reducing pain and inflammation, supporting the immune system, alleviating dry cough, helping with digestive issues and detoxing the body to name a few.
Change your water, change your life!
Water is the most important substance in the world. Drinking plenty of water on a daily basis is vital to our health.
Knowledge is power, the more you know, the better your health will be.
Water carries nutrients to cells, helps with digestion, flushes out toxins, helps prevent headache and fatigue, and can even aid in weight loss or maintenance. Our bodies are up to 75% water, and staying well-hydrated is critical to our optimum health and survival.
HOWEVER, NOT ALL WATER IS CREATED EQUAL.
Two and a half years ago, I introduced Kangen water into my life to support my body to reach a better state of health.
Kangen Water (electrolyzed reduced water (ERW), or hydrogen water) begins as tap water. The Enagic machine is a medical device in Japan and it has been used in the last 45 years in Japanese hospitals as a gold standard. The machine filters out chlorine and other impurities from the tap water, then separates the hydrogen and oxygen with a process known as electrolysis. This process adds an electron to the hydrogen creating a new molecule called diatomic molecular hydrogen gas. When this is added to your drinking water, it produces antioxidant-rich Kangen Water.
Besides all these, this medical device replaces all the chemicals in your home, it produces 11.5 ph to wash the pesticides off the veggies and fruit, 2.5 ph water kills any bacteria, fungus, viruses or paracites and it is 33% stronger than bleach, beauty water replaces windex, 11.5 replaces any degreaser or laundry detergent. All these options from one amazing machine.
The best of all is that it supports the body to heal itself and feel absolutely amazing! For this reason, I offer to all my clients, 2 weeks free trial of this water to see the difference it makes in your life.
