Integrative Therapies in Hospital:
Wether you or your loved one are in hospital for the short or longterm, integrating the healing modalities of Reiki, Massage Therapy, Essential Oil Therapy, modified Yoga and Meditation can augment traditional Western medicine to aid in the healing process. My wish is to bring these proven methods of stress and anxiety reduction to your bedside to enhance your wellbeing. This service is sliding scale, and offered to a limited number of patients. Please feel free to inquire.
*The inspiration for this service comes from the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy initiative. Urban Zen is the brainchild of yoga master Rodney Yee and designer Donna Karan. The program is used in several medical centres in the US to alleviate P.A.N.I.C (pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia and constipation) in recovering cancer patients. Currently I am reaching out to R.M.T.’s, Yoga practitioners, Nutritionists and others in the healthcare field with a similar interest. My hope is to see UZIT brought to Canada.

Oh how I love Tracey Ullman and yes, I have had somewhat similar malfunctions in my long career as a massage therapist! ://vimeo.com/156098305
FYI if you are wishing for a full day luxury spa experience; facials, mani/pedi, vichy treatments, spa lunch ext... you'll probably want to head to the Stillwater Spa and you may occasionally find me there as your therapist!
I have had a long standing relationship with the Park Hyatt Stillwater Spa and offer them three days per month providing both Vichy (hydrotherapy) and Registered Massage Therapy.
Love that colourful aquarium and their yummy biscotti!
Who knew we could garner great wisdom from those tedious inflight safety demos? That one line that begins all trips "please be sure to put on your own oxygen mask first before assisting others" can also serve as a reminder in life that if we ignore our own needs we jeopardize not only our health and wellness but also the ability to assist others. Unfortunately many folks, especially parents and caregivers, feel that self-care is an act of selfishness and in turn find themselves feeling burnt out, depleted and depressed. However with a shift in perspective, seeing that our own sense of balance and happiness has importance, we can then serve as a model to our children, our community and ultimately cultivate a more harmonious and fulfilling life experience.
If you're gasping for air you aren't going to be useful to yourself or anyone else!
Find your own sanctuary from stress and allow time for the things that feed your soul and refill your tank. It'll be helpful for you, your family and for the world at large.
