Work, life and stress - getting the balance right

Work/life balance is something we often hear about but what does this really mean?  In fact, work-related stress has become a leading contributor to many physical health concerns, ranging from high blood pressure to auto-immune disorders, to say nothing of its toll on relationships and people’s emotional health.

Keeping your stress levels to a minimum and prioritising self-care may be the single most important lifestyle change you can make to improve this balance.

In this article, Julia Briscoe explores practical steps you could take to getting the balance right. Read More

Gut Health 2 - Accupressure Reflexology

Good digestion is important for the absorption of nutrients which help keep skin, hair, nails, muscles and bones healthy.
But its more than that, in fact most of your immune system is in your gut, so if it’s sluggish, your immunity can be compromised. 
How does  Acupressure Reflexology help?
Acupressure Reflexology can be of significant benefit to you when trying to pin point areas in your body that are not working as they should be.
A series of Acupressure Reflexology treatments can help to increase blood flow and stimulation to the digestive system and decrease stress to that area of your body. Read More

Ancient Traditions of Tongue Scraping

Have you noticed a stickiness in your mouth or a thick white coating on your tongue when you wake up in the morning? This is an accumulation of metabolic toxins that form overnight.

Tongue scraping is a yogic and ayurvedic ritual that our resident practitioner Geeta Vara grew up with to remove this toxic. She believes that this is an essential component to our daily morning cleansing rituals as part of the quest to maintain good gut health from the outset.

If you could see your future....what would you change today?

If it was possible to see ourselves in 20, 30 years time….and we were clear on what our choices today had created in our bodies and our lives, would you change anything?

We don’t know for certain how our current lifestyle affects our body and it’s ability to thrive in two or three decades time? How could we when the science community only knows 4% of how the universe works (and that includes our bodies)….so 96% is still unknown. We don’t have facts to demonstrate how all our choices influence our health, our wellbeing, our future quality of life. However, what we do have is our awareness. Read more
