Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
I'm not great at stopping. I'm working on it. But generally I'm pretty good at doing. Quite a lot. I just do it. It was after I'd recommended a client to visit Jennie Clegg of Nurturing Touch that I thought I really should probably know where I was recommending her to. And what. I'd heard great things about Mizan Therapy in general but didn't really know much about it. Jennie also is a Sound Therapist - and I am a BIG lover of a sound bath. I've a group gong bath, and a gong bath just for me but never a 1:1 sound therapy session.
So, in typical me style, why not dive in and try them both in a combined session. So I did. And my word. From the start to the finish I was glad I did.
I've known Jennie for some time, we both move in similar circles, and am glad to have her in my life. Is it fair to say even more so now? No, I think just I'm glad I know more of what she does.
The therapy room is warm, welcoming whilst being calm and serene at the same time. Uncluttered and fresh feeling, it was a space to drop away the worries at the door.
Jennie's approach, professional yet friendly, would put anyone at ease and give the feeling they were in good hands (pun intended). Mizan/Abdominal Healing is a therapy for anyone with an abdomen I learnt. I had thought it was aimed more at women, but it's for both men and women. I didn't go with a specific aim, more with an open mind and curiosity, albeit there are always niggles and things that could be helped.
Then onto the Sound Healing. This is something I'm curious to learn more about and even tempted to dive in and study it later this year. We'll see what unfolds. Post massage fuzzy happy state, was a wonderful way to enter the Sound stage of the session and Jennie asked whether I'd be OK with the singing bowls placed on my body. I'd never tried that before so why not? Feeling the vibrations pass through me was a new sensation, and I loved the session. Finishing with the gong, I'm pretty sure I drifted off into the most relaxed state I'd been in recently, and it felt great.
All in all, I can't wait to check my diary and see when I can get back there. I will be firmly and happily recommending Jennie, to anyone, and if you're curious, head over and check out her website.
