The skin is one of the bodys elimination organs, often overlooked, and it needs care to not only work at its best but also to look its best. For fresh, vitalised skin that allows the body to cleanse start a dry skin brushing routine. You need a natural-bristle brush, or a rough towel will do, to gently but firmly brush your skin. Start at each foot and hand and sweep the skin in short strokes moving upwards towards your heart. On your tummy brush in a clockwise motion to follow the direction of your digestive system. Skin brush before showering to wash the dead skin cells away and follow up with a moisturiser. One of our massage bars would be perfect.
Massage is wonderful for relaxation, to reduce stress, improve circulation & to bring intimacy and harmony. Perfect to share with your partner yet equally through self massage.
There are some circumstances where massage is not advisable which include among others, after surgery, for severe unexplained internal pain, lymphatic cancer, kidney & liver conditions. Always consult a practioner if you have an underlying condition & in pregnancy.
Self massage clips from Rachel Richards, will give you plenty of inspiration. Try looking up some more of her free demonstrations. Its so simple, and gifting yourself a few minutes a day, even just before sleep, will improve your inner harmony and physical comfort. You above all else, deserve your own loving care.
A foot massage with our Cooling Foot Bar, with wild yarrow, peppermint and lemon balm, is perfect for taking the heat out of sore feet and to unwind.
Stress affects our breathing, it becomes shallow and fast as we live in continual fight or flight. We are unable or fearful to take life in fully through our breath. Slowing the breath, breathing in fully and deeply resets our message to the brain, it tells it we are safe, the danger is gone. Try breath work with our Calming Balm to rebalance your emotional state.
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins & waste. It transports lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. It does not have a pump to move it, as the blood has the heart, moving the muscles does this through exercise & hot/cold hydrotherapy. Its important to prepare for a cold shower and Wim Hof shows you how. Finishing a warm shower with a quick blast of cold water is enough, we dont have to be an ice man! It moves the lymph and lifts your mood.
