December 2011 Newsletter - Massage special offer, gift vouchers & courses
Summertime is here - its the Fire element. The energy of life is now fully expanded - its a time to be social, enjoying ourselves, being of "high spirits", getting some heat into our bones, and opening our hearts. We feel enthusiatic, joy and a sense of life purpose.
The Fire element is connected to our heart, blood, small intestines, the endocrine system and the ability to communicate.
When the Fire element is out of balance we lose faith in life, lack direction, cannot communicate, feel helpless and end up being either impatient, arrogant or cruel to ourselves and others. Our blood pressure may change, have pain between our shoulder blades, a flushed completion, short breath, poor circulation. If we get too impatient or hasty we get pressure in the heart which can cause heart conditions and blood clots.
What helps us be in balance is to swim in the water, dance, sing, be involved in activities which lift the spirit, take a slow walk by the sea, have afternoon naps, daydream, draw or paint, meditate, listen to calming music, slow down to the point where you no longer feel impatient.
Did you know that wearing sunglasses all the time increases the risk of sunburn? The body calculates the amount of seritonin to make according to the dialation of the eyes. If we wear sunglasses all the time the body is tricked into thinking there is less sunlight than there really is. Therefore it doesn't make as much seritonin, our natural sun protection. This isn't to say we shouldn't wear sunglasses at all, just to leave them and your sunhat off for a while in the morning (15-30 minutes) to give our body chance to make the appropriate sun intensity calculation.
CAN YOU HELP ME? I need to get some feedback on my massages so I am running a SPECIAL OFFER from 19th Dec 2011 until 12th January 2012 - a one hour massage for $45 (normally valued at $70). You will be asked to complete a questionnaire at the end of the massage. I need lots of feedback so I can improve my business, so please tell your friends to come too. Its a great deal! You cannot use this offer to purchase gift vouchers.
GIFT VOUCHERS are also available (not on special offer) if you know a friend or family member enjoys massage and would like it as a Christmas gift.
There will be lots of courses coming up in February next year. * Healing * *Womans Health the Natural Way* *Classes for a Strong and Flexible Back* Details will be up on my website by the end of this month.
