Finding Your True Colours

Finding Your True Colours

Starting the 10th of September, we’ll be welcoming Susan of Susan’s Soul Connexions for Part 1 of her 5 week course, “Finding Your True Colours”. She beautifully describes what this course has meant to her and others. You’ll also find booking details below –

“Today is all about choices, chances and changes for me and the ladies that are beginning the second part of Finding Your True Colours. A few months ago, I took a chance and created a 5 week course that I knew could bring great changes to others, the reason I knew this is because I had undergone great changes as a result of recognising and becoming aware of my own behaviour, patterns and belief systems. This awareness then created a huge change in me, and this in turn changed my life. So I took a chance and decided to pass this on to others that wanted to create a new way of being, and attract all the thing they wanted into their lives. These ladies, also took a chance on trying out my course, and very soon making new choices brought great changes to them also. This morning we meet again to continue this journey, and I am honoured to be a part of their choices, chances and changes. So if you are wondering why your life is just not getting anywhere fast, or why you’re still getting the same things coming up all the time. The truth is, if you keep on doing what you are doing, you will keep on getting the same results. So today, ask yourself if you have the courage to change your life. If so start with taking a chance on making a new choice.”

With any questions or to book your spot on this course, please contact Susan at or This five week course will start Thursday, 10th September and meet from 7pm-9pm. Cost is €150 and a €50 deposit is required to secure your place. This course is limited to 10 people. All materials will be supplied. 

Massage and Arthritis

Massage and Arthritis

I was just reading an interesting article about how massage therapy can help arthritis sufferers. A number of studies have shown that, in general, massage can help reduce and relieve pain.  In addition to receiving regular massage from a qualified therapist who would know how to adjust a treatment accordingly, there are self-massage techniques that can be quite beneficial.

“As part of the study “Rheumatoid arthritis in upper limbs benefits from moderate pressure massage therapy,” conducted by Tiffany Field, PhD, director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine, participants were taught a self-massage protocol that proved helpful in reducing the pain associated with their arthritis.

The following self-massage was specific to the arm and shoulder:

> Stroking. Stroking from the wrist to the shoulder with moderate pressure, then from the shoulder back to the wrist three times. On the top of the hand, stroke from the wrist to the tips of the fingers and back to the
wrist. Repeat on the underside of the arm.

> Milking.
On the top of the arm, cup fingers with thumb on the underside, pulling the flesh between them  and gradually moving down to wrist and back up to shoulder from the wrist. Again, use moderate pressure. Repeat on bottom of the arm.

> Friction.
Make circular movements with four fingers on top of the arm, moving across the shoulder and down the arm and top of hand. Repeat same on underside of arm.

> Skin rolling.
Similar to the milking, squeeze the arm between the fingers and the thumb, then crawl fingers across skin with moderate pressure, first on top of arm and then underside of the arm and top of shoulder.”

Total Relaxation

Total Relaxation

Total relaxation is how we would describe our 75 minute Nautilus Signature Facial.

When you arrive, you’ll enjoy a hydrating glass of citrus or herbal infused water while you and your therapist chat about your main skin concerns and goals for your facial. The therapist will review your current skin condition and determine your skin type. Based on this conversation, specific products will be selected to suit your skin type/concerns.

You’ll then sit back and relax while easing your feet into a bowl of warm water for a soothing soak. This helps to relax the body and mind as the focus is on the feet, which can be a very grounding experience and help ease any stress or distractions in your mind.

After this, the therapist will assist you onto the plinth for your facial. The luxurious Neal’s Yard Remedies skincare products selected for your facial will help soothe, hydrate & nourish. Choosing the perfect blend of essential oils and plant extracts make this treatment the ultimate stress reliever as the aromas work on balancing the body, mind, and soul.

You’ll finish your Nautilus Signature Facial experience with an organic herbal tea. This lovely head to toe treatment will leave you feeling rested and refreshed with a beautiful, healthy glow to your skin.
