Breath Work

As we enter into our fourth week of quarantine or cocooning, I’d like to ask you how are you breathing?

Are you filling up your lungs with air regularly each day?
Can you fill your lungs up with air or are you stuck in fear and anxiety?
Can you move out of that fear and breath not only into your lungs but into your tummy and torso?

How Do You Keep Calm At Christmas?

Christmas is a time of fun and festive cheer!  There’s decorations to put up, gifts to wrap and Christmas day to prepare for.  Do you glide your through this Christmas season effortlessly, or do you come out the other end feeling more frazzled than the turkey on a bad day…?!

Here are some tips to help you keep your cool.

  1. Enjoy the preparation.

There’s plenty you can do to enjoy the preparations towards Christmas.
If you shop on the high street, make sure you take some time for a coffee or some lunch during that day.   
Make putting up the tree a family occasion, or if you live alone, invite a friend over and have a sherry whilst hanging up your tinsel and baubles!
Spend an evening looking through your cook books, which recipes are your favourite and easy to make for Christmas dinner?

2.  Ask for help!

If you have too much to do, then ask for help!  Ask a friend or family member to help take on some tasks to prepare for Christmas festivities.  Perhaps they would like to join in and feel part of the preparation.

3.  Do something for someone else.

Do you have a neighbour who lives alone?  Or perhaps you have a friend who has had a difficult year?
Doing something for another person can often give you that “feel good factor” .  It may mean joining them for a cuppa for an hour.   Taking your friend out for a change of scenery could do you both the world of good.  You could visit a local Christmas market or book to see your local choir sing Christmas carols.

4.  Schedule in some ME time!

You’ve done it!  You’ve got through Christmas!  Now what about you?  Have you scheduled any time out for you?
Some Calm Therapy could be the perfect way to treat yourself after the Christmas rush.

3 Ways To….
Practise self care this Christmas

1)  Create a good Self Care routine
Start as you mean to go on.  Eat seasonally and enjoy when you indulge!  There’s plenty of opportunity to “face plant” the mince pies and bubbles.  Try to keep everything in moderation to avoid those sugar highs and lows.
Keep drinking plenty of fluids and exercise every day!

2)  Look Your Best
Your self care routine is a great way start to looking your best.  If your skin needs a boost, indulge with

Asapoth Wild Beauty Balm.

 

Wild Beauty Balm

 

Melt a tiny amount in the hands and apply gently to the face, neck and décolletage to nourish and soften the skin and improve texture and elasticity, and to balance, rejuvenate and restore the skin
Leave for 15 mins, then rinse with warm water.  Pat your face dry with a warm fluffy towel.

Alternatively you could treat yourself to some luxury with my
Zone Face Lift Experience
and

You Shall Be
Belle Of The Ball!

3) Prepare For The Next Morning.
Perhaps the bubbles went down too well at the Christmas bash?
Make sure you are fully stocked with Vitamin C, a hearty stew and line up some good films for a day of recovery!

Of course,  I like everything in moderation, but would love to hear what your trusted hangover cures are!
Email or Text me on 07734 695 964!  I’d love to know!

How do you feel when you look in the mirror?

Since training and treating clients with Facial Reflexology and Zone Face Lift Therapy, I have noticed a common pattern occurring amongst women of a certain age.

During the consultation, I ask them, “How do you feel when you look in the mirror..?”  Several women put their hands up to their faces and say ” I look awful!” or “I hate the way I look!”

It has taken me some time to get used to this response.  I am a 47 year old woman and have noticed sudden changes to my skin tone and wrinkles appearing over the past couple of years.  I have to admit, I didn’t feel great when I first noticed them, but now I accept, this is who I am and this is how I should look at my age.

Even in my treatment room it is becoming apparent that the stigma of ageing is still going strong.

I don’t like “anti-ageing”  or “reverse signs of ageing” slogans or products. It is keeping us pining for our youth instead of embracing who we are today.   It’s a sad fact that many women loose confidence as signs of ageing appear and sometimes they can feel invisible to society.

We need a slogan that represent a confident, dynamic woman in her 40’s, 50’s 60’s and beyond who is still living a full life and has probably supported others along the way.

So I say let’s Age Well Naturally!  Embrace the fact that we are lucky enough to have reached a certain age.  Age with grace and style and feel our beauty from within.  Simple daily self care tips can help to reduce stress levels and your looks will be on the right path to beauty and radiance.

This is why I love offering Zone Face Lift Therapy.  Although it can help to smooth fine lines and plump a dull complexion it is not a beauty treatment.  It works from an holistic angle, lifting your spirits and releasing emotional stress from the face.  It has healing qualities that will help to balance your body, emotions and mind.  Not only will you look amazing after a  Zone Face Lift Experience you will feel amazing too!

Zone Face Lift – A Natural Treatment For A Sensitive Skin

Zone Face Lift Therapy Logo

Ally is 54 and lives with her partner in Eastbourne having previously lived in London and Edinburgh. She has a son, aged 17 who is currently studying for his exams. She has worked as an Aromatherapist for over 25 years and this has led to her starting her own business aptly named, “Naturally Healing” where she offers complimentary health therapies including Sukshma Marma Therapy, a healing method through transcendental touch; Asyra Bioenergetic Health Screening and Rahanni Healing.  In her spare time, she enjoys walking, yoga, dancing, swimming, reading and going to the theatre.

  1. How and when did you hear about Calm Therapy?

I met Jane from Calm Therapy at a workshop several years ago and we have kept in touch ever since. We got on straight away and have a lot in common, with both of us being advocates of natural therapies.

  1. Had you heard of Zone Face Lift (ZFL) before you met Jane?

No, I hadn’t heard about it, but I follow Jane on her Facebook page where she mentioned she was doing the training to offer the Ziggie Bergman Zone Face Lift treatment and immediately I was keen to try it. It was very appealing as it is a natural treatment and uses crystals. I have to be very careful with the treatments I choose, as I am allergic to lots of things and am prone to acne.

  1. You have allergies – can you tell us more?

I have many food allergies, which has led in turn to very bad allergic, skin issues and as a result follow a gluten and lactose free diet. I have also had several skin issues due to going through the menopause. This means that any skin treatments I have must be as natural as possible, so that they are chemical free, paraben free, and where possible use totally organic products.

  1. Can you give us more details about ZFL?

Although I had known Jane for sometime, I hadn’t actually had a treatment with her but this seemed the ‘perfect’ treatment to start with. As expected Jane was very thorough and asked about my medical history and any possible contraindications and I said that I couldn’t have oil around my eyes and of course that my skin was very sensitive. The treatment involved the full works including a facial cleanse, exfoliation, massage with different crystals, a facemask and hot towels and massaging, lymphatic drainage of the skin. I was really pleased with the results after 1 session and decided to go ahead with the full course of 12.

  1. How did you feel after the ZFL treatment?

My skin was glowing and felt totally revitalised. It was certainly clearer and more plumped – the results were instant! I really feel the full course of treatments have really helped my skin and my acne has virtually gone. Also, I have suffered from the high pollen count this year and after the treatment, even my sinuses seemed clearer.

  1. Did you notice anything else?

Yes! My chin and jawline do seem more defined and my fine lines and forehead creases have diminished. I think that the treatment has helped with my circulation and has helped with the scarring from my acne and to heal my skin.

  1. Have you had any comments about your skin following the ZFL treatment?

Well, before you asked me that question, I hadn’t really thought about it but I recently went to a party and there was a professional photographer there who was snapping pictures. A friend of mine said, “You look absolutely amazing in the photos, you look different!” And, I also went to a meeting and a colleague said, “I was looking really good!” I referenced Jane Long’s treatments immediately!

  1. Some people are sceptical about alternative holistic therapies including ZFL – is there anything you would say to put their minds at ease?

I suppose it’s easy for me to go down the holistic route, as I have so many allergies, I try to lead a natural, chemical-free lifestyle. I think it’s worth giving this type of facial a try, as all of the products used are organic and as natural as possible. Perhaps, if people do have skin problems as I do, it might help them.

  1. How would you describe Jane as a therapist?

Jane is friendly, warm and professional and she epitomises the name of her company. She is Calm Therapy.

  1. Is there anything you would like to add?

I opted to have a course of 12 Zone Face Lift treatments on a weekly basis having established that it wouldn’t be detrimental to my skin. I think having them in quick succession boosts the effects and then it’s down to maintenance, perhaps once a month or one treatment every 2 months.

When I was in my twenties, I met a Plastic Surgeon and he said that if everyone had a facial every month no-one would need plastic surgery. I took heed and throughout my life I have treated myself at least every 6 months – I think I will now increase that more since I have found such a suitable facial. I think he was right!

Zone Face Lift will now become my facial experience of choice and I will definitely be going back for more. I would whole-heartedly recommend ZFL to anyone.

Ally – thank you for the interview.
