Why a Tummy Massage Could Help with Balancing Your Hormones.

Why a Tummy Massage Could Help with Balancing Your Hormones.

I've been on quite the gut and hormone health journey over the last decade, so I'm always looking for techniques, tools and practices that might aid happy digestive and hormonal health, so when I heard about the Maya massage (The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal TherapyTM) I was really intrigued to learn more and have a chance at experiencing the massage myself.

Imagine 60 minutes devoted solely to releasing any tension, emotional blocks, stimulating lymphatic drainage, restoring chi and bringing balance and harmony within digestive and endocrine systems. Sounds lush, right?!

IT’S ALL A BIT OVERWHELMING ISN’T IT?

Sometimes we know we need help with something, perhaps we feel stuck in a rut or have a particular idea in mind that we want to achieve but it can be hard to know where, or who, to turn to.

Coaches + mentors are professionally trained (or should be :)) to use and teach techniques that can - quite simply - change the direction of people’s lives. Tools that help you to look at things in a new way, help you to move through something which was causing you pain, frustration or upset and to help you learn to look at yourself and your life with a newfound respect, love and appreciation.

The Pill Debate

The Pill Debate

DO YOU FIND YOURSELF STRUGGLING TO BUILD MUSCLE, AN INABILITY TO CONTROL YOUR MOOD, SUFFERING DIGESTIVE ISSUES AND NOT PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN SEX?

It could actually be related to your contraceptive pill…

I've been taking the oral contraceptive pill for around 15 years now, give or take a few months. I seem to have the debate about stopping the pill every single month and I always reject the idea because needing the contraception outweighs the side effects, but does it? I’m in a long term relationship that is nowhere near approaching baby talks, but as I very quickly come up on 31 and with my upcoming operation and cervical cancer treatment imminent, it has thrown the age old debate back into focus.

Just How Much do Stress And Hormones Stop Us From Reaching Our Goals?

We're a group of hard working, goal smashing, well warriors through and through, right?! But, do you ever just feel like you could quite literally sleep for a week and it still wouldn’t be enough? Do you sometimes feel that no matter what you do, it's not enough?

The Period Pain Reign is Over. Period.

The Period Pain Reign is Over. Period.

Hands up if you’ve ever felt personally victimised by your uterus. I’m talking period pain and premenstrual syndrome (pms) here, we’ve all seen, heard, experienced, witnessed or all the above the full effects of what our monthly gift can do to us awesome ladies but this week, as I sat in moaning, tearful, short tempered agony I wanted to find out if there are ways to help, improve or adapt to this and share them with you in case there is anyone else out there who turns into periodzilla every month.

Are We A "Get Your Kit Off" Generation?

Are We A "Get Your Kit Off" Generation?

"The contemporary designation of the body as 'meat machine' is merely the latest iteration of a long tradition of self loathing" - Marina Benjamin

I've noticed a thread or should I say, a new 'norm' laced through my Instagram feed recently. 

More and more accounts seeing both men and women turn up the heat and drop the clothes. It's -1 outside baby so there's got to be more than meets the scantily clad eye on this new societal norm. 

Are we forming a culture defying sexual oppression or are we simply shifting the paradigm of what is 'okay' to post online? 

What Does Fear Mean To You?

What Does Fear Mean To You?

We all know and experience fear first hand, and for many, it’s a daily occurrence. In Chinese medicine, fear is located in the kidneys. Nervous pee anyone? 👀 The science here is probably more to do with the nerves that run up the spine or the muscles tensing, but sure, let’s start with a toilet reference, why not. 😬

Fear can have a detrimental effect not only on our emotional and mental wellbeing but also our physical wellbeing. It puts us on high alert and preps us for ‘battle’.

Fear is a feeling and byproduct of an emotion. So what’s the difference between a feeling and an emotion?

Why Being A One Solution Focused Coach Doesn't Work...

Hey Well Warrior,

If you follow my social media or have spent much time looking at my online space which houses my journey as a coach to date, you'll know I'm not one for following the norm - in fact, my inner rebel actually detests the very notion of adhering or conforming to society. It's like a flip in me switches and off I go in the opposite direction. Even at times when the opposite direction doesn't serve my best interests. 

My very branding goes against what thousands of other coaches walking down a gorgeous sunlit beach with balloons in hand and sparkles a plenty, would gawk and horror at. It's intentionally dark, it's moody but it's designed to be real.
