Quite a few people make resolutions at this time of year; to get fitter, give up something, start something new….. all very good and wonderful ideas but I would like to ask you something more specific. I bet you’re a carer of some sorts, a Mum, a teacher, a Dr maybe, I bet you have someone you have to look after, care for and think about daily…. So…. who looks after you?
We all know deep down that if we look after ourselves we can take better care of others, if we feel nurtured and nourished we can find the time and energy to nourish others. However, there can be feelings of guilt or maybe selfishness around doing something for yourself. Studies show that simply taking care of yourself will lead to a more fulfilling life.
So, what can you do to take of yourself….?
Eat well, get good restful sleep, drink plenty of water, exercise, laugh, have hobbies or maybe have an aromatherapy massage!
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to improve your health and well-being. I offer full body massages for £55, or a back, neck & shoulder massages for £45. I work from my own private practice so you will always get a full hour for your full body treatment and 35 min for back, neck & shoulders. I work 2 evenings a week and most days so I can accommodate your needs.
All of my regular clients express how much they enjoy coming for their treatments, how if they miss an appointment they feel ‘out of sorts’ or feel a sense of ‘unbalance’. At each treatment I will assess their needs and choose essential oils for a bespoke blend.
Nearly all of the essential oils have physical and emotional properties that can nurture and nourish you, whether you want to be uplifted, sedated, invigorated or rejuvenated. I can find the blend that will enable you to feel how you want to feel!
You will leave the treatment feeling restored and ready to face all that our modern life throws at us.
This is what one of my regular clients has to say about having regular treatments:
I have been having my luxurious full body aromatherapy massage with Jo for the last 8 years. It’s so wonderful to discuss how I am feeling and then relax completely with each bespoke blend of oils. As a busy working mum, it’s important that I make space in my life to care about myself on a regular basis. I cannot express how grateful I am for that precious me time, she helps keep me sane.” Heather, Brighton
Meeting your personal needs is an absolute vital undertaking and I urge you to find something that brings you joy and fulfilment!
