Thai Foot Massage!

Just finished a brilliant Thai Foot Massage course with me mam! So interesting, can't wait to start adding it to my Take A Breather treatments! It's a beautiful hour long treatment, so nice!

Mental Health Awareness Week!

It's Mental Health Awareness Week! I'll be running the Manchester 10k this coming Sunday in aid of C.A.L.M (www.thecalmzone.net), a superb local charity that help people felt depression! I'll also be doing the Great Northern 2 Mile Windermere swim in June and the Great Manchester 1 mile swim in July raising as much money for this great charity. 

Alternative/complimentary therapies are a great way to help relax, clear your head and help fight any unwanted demons that may be lurking. 

Reiki healing is becoming an increasingly accepted presence in hospitals/clinics being effective for pain, anxiety and depression relief.

Listen to your heart, man!

This video is amazing! Below it is also a quick 60 second sound clip of how to create a state of coherence.

"Easily create a state of coherence in about 60 seconds by releasing stress and stopping draining emotions such as frustration, irritation, anxiety and anger. When you are in a coherent state, your thoughts and emotions are balanced and you experience ease and inner harmony."

Save The Males! Gender Equality In The Spa Industry.

Being a bloke, working as a Holistic Therapist, who also goes for regular massage treatments I thought this article from my friends at Bali Health Lounge was a nice little read

I also try and raise as much money as possible with my sponsored swims/runs for local based charity C.A.L.M which is a great charity aimed at preventing suicide in young males, the single biggest killer in men aged under 45 in the UK!

I'd actually say my client-base is pretty close to 50-50 male/female! 

I think my main point with this post is, I, knowing full well as I've been there, know what it's like for a chap not wanting to talk about health and looking after yourself, as it's not very "manly". It is though isn't it? It is manly! Looking after yourself mentally & physically is something everyone should be doing, male & female. End of.
