Just Be Blog – January 2016
What’s been happening?
So it’s the start of another year and you are probably struggling already with getting back into a routine and starting on those resolutions or goals. It’s all overwhelming but think about how you want to feel this year and match your resolutions or goals to those feelings. To help, I will be posting a ‘Thought for the Day’ every day throughout 2016 on my Facebook Page. Simply LIKE and SAVE on my facebook page to see the ‘Thought for the day’ daily throughout the year. This is something I used to do when I lived in England and there would be a ‘Thought for the day’ every morning on BBC Radio 4 and I continued to practice it daily using sources like Doreen Virtue, Reiki, Meditation and Yoga. It takes you away from your negative thoughts and focuses you on the important things in life and will even help you cope with those bad situations. There is good in every day, so I hope to help you focus on the positive for 2016.
January Case Study – Childbirth
Did you know that reflexology and aromatherapy can help with childbirth. Last year a lady wanted to have a natural birth and to go into labour on her own. She had previously had a C-Section and wanted to experience a natural birth. About a week before her due date she contacted me and we started with reflexology treatments. We only did one treatment as she went into labour within 18 hours. I had also given her an aromatherapy blend to help during childbirth which she used once her labour started. Research shows that reflexology for childbirth will regulate breathing and improve deep breathing, release tension and pain, improve circulation and thereby help contractions and give energy for childbirth. An aromatherapy blend during labour will help to gently speed up contractions, create a calm and tranquil atmosphere and help keep you and the surrounding area free of bacteria. Following the birth, the blend will associate the blend with love and comfort. It will also help with milk production. it also helps to relax Mum and prepare her for the birth mentally, physically and emotionally. It reduces fear and thereby makes the whole experience of childbirth more fulfilling. Don’t forget I offer the Just Be Baby Package which is also a lovely gift for a friend or family member.
