“Spice of Life” Treats!

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Happy official Fall Y’all! Friday’s Equinox celebration was beautiful in many ways with a ceremonial fire, setting of intentions, and letting go.  Mother Nature decided to douse us with rain fall to help “clear” the air and refresh us.  Hope you’re able to do this for yourself as we cruise into the changing of fall colors.

At this dawn of a new season, I’m excited to share this essential oil called “Spice of Life.”  This is a MUST keep in the purse to help you and your family’s health.  I found this oil through Be Young’s collection and it is a gem! We are entering the cold and flu season, and this oil essential oil can help kill bacteria and viruses.  A great idea to keep pathogens at bay, is to have Spice of Life diffusing in your home a couple hours a day.  I normally use 10-15 drops of the essential oil in my home and office diffuser.  It is only $20 for the 5mL bottle!

This is a description of the Spice of Life oil from the Be Young website:

“Spice of Life™ blend was inspired by a band of spice traders in the 14th century. Amazingly, none of these traders contracted the black plague rampant at the time. When asked by a king to reveal their secret they revealed that they were using the very spices they traded to prevent illness and protect their immunity. After countless hours of searching ship manifests, these legendary spices have been identified and combined in Spice of Life™ blend. Research within the past two decades is starting to confirm what these spice traders hundreds of years already knew: these spices have powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral, antimicrobial, anti-neoplastic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Spice of Life™ has rapidly become a favorite of the Be Young essential oil users.”

Also, here’s a quick guide to teach you how to use the oil.  You can ingest the oil (a drop), make a cough syrup to sooth the throat, take it to sooth an upset stomach, diffuse it in an essential oil diffuser or even as an antiseptic mouth wash.  It’s a very useful oil.  Just recently I had an upset stomach and used one drop in my water.  Within the hour it to helped sooth my upset stomach.   Please let me know if you’d like a bottle of this truly “essential” oil and start enjoying it’s benefits today!

Again Spice of Life the 5mL bottle is only $20, priced great for such a powerful and effective essential oil.  Feel free to contact me about an order at 828-712-4238.

 

Also here’s a video featuring Dana Young, the founder of Be Young essential oils in discussing ways to help the Back to School transition go smoothly for the whole household.  He mentions how carrying lavender or lemon essential oil to school can be a nice antiseptic for your kids.  Again please let me know if you want to order any of these oils to help you and your family to stay healthy!

How John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release (MFR) can benefit you

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Journal from Sedona:

How John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release has helped me and how it can benefit you

In April 2017, I had an incredible visit to Sedona, AZ to study with John F. Barnes, the visionary, world-renowned physical therapist, and creator of his technique of Myofascial Release therapy (MFR). I had no idea I was going to be shaken to my core through this work. The land in Sedona has a truly powerful essence, and by adding the profoundness of this technique I quickly experienced its healing nature. My time in Sedona advanced my skills and knowledge, but the greatest gift was that it helped me to heal on a deeper emotional, mental level. I’ve always believed that as a therapist, if I can release deeply then my clients are able to reap the benefit as well.

MFR allows me to feel more authentic and comfortable in my own skin. My goal for you is to feel amazing by living a pain-free and active lifestyle.

John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release therapy is gentle, safe, and consistently produces results that last. The main differences in this MFR technique from traditional massage therapy are:
1) The time element. The holds can start at a minimum of 3-5 minutes, at times longer to wait for the fascia to truly release or elongate and cause a permanent shift. After the 5 minute-mark your body naturally produces its own anti-inflammatory response.

2) The “sinking in” method versus pushing. When you experience MFR you will feel me sinking slowly in to the point of resistance versus pushing or forcing beyond your body’s resistance. This allows us to work WITH your body instead of forcing it. Also, it’s important to have NO oils or lotions on your body to prevent slipping or losing grip with the fascial connection.

3) You can wear shorts and a bathing suit top. This allows me to see areas on your body that may have a vasomotor response or turn red during your session. Also, if your body wants to move off the table, you can feel comfortable moving while being covered in your clothes.

MFR sessions work best when done in a series, even starting at 2-3 times a week for 2-3 weeks.

Many conditions have been helped with this technique including:

Chronic pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, pelvic pain, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, adhesions, TMJ, scoliosis, sciatica, infants/children, women’s health issues, and more.

If you are curious about MFR or desire to find relief from your pain, please call and schedule an MFR schedule today. Or if you know anyone who may find this work helpful, please refer them to me. I’d love to assist as many people as possible to find the pain-free freedom that they deserve.

Stay tuned…

Later in May, I’ll be posting about the new techniques I learned while in Sedona, AZ.

 

 

Tap into your inner Aloha

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Outrigger boats with Diamond Head in the background.

Spring is almost officially here! The daffodils and cherry blossoms are already showing their beautiful selves around my neighborhood in Asheville, NC.  Inspired by this warm weather, I’ve been craving the ocean and it has me reminiscing about my first time in Hawaii.  Lovely memories of swimming with dolphins in Honaunau (Place of Refuge), making leis on Waikiki Beach and watching the lava flow into the ocean at Volcanoes National Park all make my heart joyful.  Another aloha-filled experience was my first Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage. I loved that it is an ancient healing technique filled with the intention of unconditional love.  This form of healing is felt beyond the physical; it is transformational for my mind, soul, and energy too.  It took me to a subconscious state of grace and peace.  I came out of the session feeling like every pore of my body was breathing.  If you’d like to feel this for yourself, please schedule a Lomi Lomi session with me.
It’s a truly distinct experience to allow the aloha-spirit to flow through you and welcome in Spring!

Sending you blessings, gratitude and Spring Gladness!

Healthy Tips & Practices for feeling and looking great in 2017!

Baby Steps:

  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of fresh water every day (For example if you weigh 150 lbs, drink 75 ounces of water a day)
  • Replace white flour products with whole wheat or whole grain products. Or even better just go gluten-free.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Eliminate sugar, sodas and alcohol.
  • Try a smoothie with a high-quality protein shake for breakfast and or snack per day. M’lis has a good protein powder that we have for sale.

  • Eat double the vegetables to fruit per day.
  • Take a daily high-quality multi-vitamin, probiotic and antioxidant. (see “Vital” below)
  • Book in advance a set schedule for massages! Set it in your calendar & look forward to it every time.

Self-care with Myofascial Release

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Self Myofascial Release is an incredible way to be an active part in decreasing your pain and increasing your connection to your inner wisdom.  I’m teaching clients how to use the 4 inch ball to continue their progress between sessions.  The following are instructions on how to use the ball most effectively.  A YouTube video is included to show you how to use this therapy ball.

Pure Therapy’s Myofascial Release 4 inch ball self-treatment tips:

1)     DO find a place on your body that is tight, hard or tender.  That is what we call a restriction: an area where the fascia (connective tissue) has dehydrated and gotten stuck.

2)     DO spend 3-5 minutes in one place. Fascia is mostly collagen which is resistant to stretching.  It takes time to open and release, one thing you can’t rush.

3)     DO be curious.  Explore beyond where the symptom is.  Myofascial release looks to finds the cause of the symptom which can be far removed from the area of pain.

4)     DO self-treat in the soft areas of the body, not directly over bone.  Lying on your back you could treat: the backs of the legs, gluteals, upper back, between shoulder blades.  Lying on your stomach you could treat: the front of the thighs, pelvis, and abdomen.

5)     DO listen to your body, never force or try to “muscle” your way through self-treatment.  If you cannot breathe normally and relax into it, reposition the ball or move your body.

If need, please feel free to contact Kim Cantor Iamurri at 828-712-4238 for more information and details regarding your individual self-care needs.
