Hi Karen, Well, that’s the first month of 2021 gone! We still find that time flies by when we are not in our normal routine and fast-paced life, especially in these dark winter months. We hope you are coping in this current lockdown, though we understand that many of us are feeling like everything is just too much. One of the most important ways of dealing with a crisis is by feeling the feelings and letting them happen. Whether they are happy, sad, or angry, they are all valid. If you need to reach out to someone, then reach out. None of us are finding it easy. Making a plan in a pandemic is tricky but putting a little game plan into your lives, with the acceptance that things can change and embracing flexibility is a good practise to learn in these uncertain times. Let’s all try to enjoy each moment and each other as it comes because we never get that back.

- A prayer

Karen and Devon have been busy writing a book about about the healing power within a hug, what a hug means, when to hug, how to ask for a hug and different types of hugs. The Calming Book of Healing Hugs will be out soon. Keep an eye on the normal website plus the new MindBody Publishing website for updates.
NEW ONLINE TREATMENTS
If you are missing your regular massage treatments, you may suffer with the return of aches and pains. It is possible to self massage if you know the right techniques.
Alternatively, if you have someone in your bubble willing and able to perform treatments on you, then Devon is offering tailored one-to-one (via zoom) guided massage techniques. Learn effective massage techniques from the comfort of your home.

Everyones experience of lockdown is different as home setups/child care/ access to technology differs wildly from home to home. However, one common outcome from all this juggling is anxiety and stress. This article from Amanda Kirby gives good tips on how to recognise signs of anxiety and how to deal with them.
THERAPY 4 HEALING
T4H has continued to give support through one-to-one befriending, mentoring, coaching and counselling over the phone.
This counselling is for people who cannot access private counselling for help with stress, depression, bereavement, isolation and anyone who needs someone to talk to. If you, or someone you know needs a listening ear then please fill out the form in the link below and someone will be in touch.
Our next group Reiki session will take place on: Sunday 7th February at 11am | £5.00
The session will take place via zoom and a code will be sent once a booking is made. Many people ask, ‘How can online work?’…….
All of us are made of energy and part of a larger whole. During a group session, collective thinking and focusing our energy together can be channeled to help heal ourselves and others. This is a great opportunity during a time when we aren’t in contact with others outside of our immediate circle, to learn how we can heal and bring spiritual connection back into our lives.
Benefits of Reiki:
- A boost to your body’s healing mechanisms
- Potentially reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and stress hormones from the relaxation response
- Increased immune system strength
- Shifting from the stress response of “fight or flight” to the relaxation response
- Restoration of balance to your body, mind, and soul
PRODUCT OF THE SEASON
Don’t know about you, but being indoors and central heating is making our skin very, very dry. Calm Deluxe body cream is an excellent cream which you can use, to deeply hydrate your skin. It could be great on problem skin conditions such as eczema as it contains all natural ingredients (always try a small section first). It is very effective if applied on damp skin straight after the shower. Use sparingly, this product will go a long way. Calm Deluxe body cream can be bought via our website shop for £15. If you like this item, check out our full range of CALM products, including room sprays, moisturisers, shower gel and massage oil. Designed and made by Devon to bring calm and peace into your life.
