Hi all! I am ever so exited to say I am expecting a little bundle of joy and a truly amazing blessing in March. This is really wonderful for us after surviving triple negative breast cancer only three years ago. Therefore, I will be taking maternity leave from the massage practice for 18 months as I can not allow for any chemotherapy residue from clients through their skin, any essential oils not suitable for pregnancy and any heavy lifting of massage equipment. I will take the time to read and study further on this fascinating topic of oncology massage and focusing on having a healthy pregnancy and birth, and benefit from spending valuable time with our little mini wiggan. Loads of love Oona x
Soothing touch, whether it be applied to a ruffled cat, a crying infant, or a frightened child, has a universally recognized power to ameliorate the signs of distress. How can it be that we overlook its usefulness on the jangled adult as well? What is it that leads us to assume that the stressed child merely needs “comforting,” while the stressed adult needs “medicine”? — from Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork by Deane Juhan
