Headache and migraine are unfortunately one of the most common wellbeing complaints that I come across in my practise. As with any physical health or wellbeing concern, it is important to get to the underlying cause in order to prevent constant reoccurrence. If we just keep taking painkillers we are ignoring the message that our body is sending us about something that needs to be dealt with on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. In this video I discuss how to determine the root causes of headache and migraine as well as how to go about managing and treating the problem in a holistic way so that you can reduce the frequency and severity - and perhaps even prevent - future episodes. I talk about things that you can do from all aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing - Food, Movement, Sleep, Surroundings and Being. Essential Oils can be extremely helpful when dealing with Headache & Migraine. In my own home I do not have pain-killers in the first aid kit because I find that oils are more beneficial and less harmful for my family than medications. The ones that I find best are: Peppermint Past Tense If you'd prefer to read the full text of this Blog, rather than watching the video, it was published by Sivana East. Reiki healing is a wonderful way to treat underlying

October's Full Moon (on the Thursday 25th in Australia) is in the sign of Taurus which gives it a bit of a different flavour to the general full moon energy that supports us to finish, close off and let go of things that no longer serve us. Taurus likes to hold on and not to look too deep! Find out what to do about this so that you can clear the decks for the next four weeks, for change and growth to occur in any area of your life. If you'd prefer to read my article on the topic, it was published by Sivana East. I offer Meditation & Healing Circles at each of my locations every month to help you get in touch with all energetic levels of your body - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - and access what you need to let go of. These are small group events to promote healing and relaxation through meditation and energy balance.

In this Vlog I'm talking about Sleep 😴⏰💤💜, specifically: - why not doing it for long enough each night is critical for brain health - what happens when we don't get enough slow wave sleep - the bi-directional relationships between this and food, and movement - why breathing through your nose is so important! If you'd prefer to read my article on this, it was published by Sivana East. Next week I will cover my top tips for getting a good night's sleep, so stay tuned! In the meantime you might like to check out my Shop for the best essential oils to help with Sleep and my Blog on this very topic. I also have another Blog all about the problems with screen devices, which is a must read! Reiki is wonderful for helping to improve sleep. It's probably the number #1 thing that clients report after a session! Now that you know how important this is, why not Book Now! I refer to Professor Matthew Walker, who is one of the top researchers in this field, globally. Snuggle up now, for health's sake!
Have you ever wondered how and why undertaking energetic ‘healing’ practices actually does work? A couple of weeks ago it was National Science Week and I was celebrating the fact that for the first time in 10 years I didn’t have to oversee a primary school science fair project! Sometimes I hate my kids growing up but not in this regard! Anyway to mark the occasion I thought that it might be useful to give everyone a bit of a refresher on the science behind my two favourite tools for energetic balance – reiki and aromatherapy. Basically it comes down to understanding that everything is energy. This is basic physics and the stuff that Einstein ‘discovered’. It can be hard to get our heads around the fact that even those things that we think of as ‘solid’ are in fact all made up of minute and constantly moving particles of energy. That includes us human beings! When becoming a reiki practitioner I was trained and attuned to tap into the energy that is all around us all of the time. It makes total sense that if you can tap into more of the stuff that we are all made of and direct it to where you are lacking in energy, wellness or balance, you will feel better! Think of it like any other ‘gap filler’ – when you have to mend
On 27th/28thJuly we had our second Blood Moon for the year. This is a Total Lunar Eclipse, and just like in February 2018, it followed a New Moon Solar Eclipse in the same month! We are in the middle of ‘eclipse season’ for 2018 and this means lots of energy abounding, but not necessarily action-oriented energy, especially with a current Mars retrograde (meaning that the action-stimulating energy of Mars is reversed) and a new Mercury retrograde (meaning that it is sometimes better not to take action especially if it involves something to do with travel, communication or technology!) Full moons are generally about closing off things you have been doing during the ‘yang’ action oriented half of the month and turning your focus inwards. What do you need to work on and consolidate within yourself now until the next New Moon phase? What happened for you, or what did you begin, around the new moon (13thJuly)? A total lunar eclipse, which means the emotional energy of the moon is blocked out, gives us the opportunity to reset our emotions, releasing any emotional baggage, especially that which has built up since the February eclipse. Letting Go Full moon energy, and especially eclipse energy can give us a great opportunity to decide to let go of something that no longer serves us, or instead to choose to let that thing ‘be’ and
This video on the Power of Pain was recorded during National Pain Week (23-29th July 2018). In it I discuss the following aspects of pain: its purpose the metaphysical point of view my own recent experience with it treating it holistically with reiki using essential oils to treat it The Essential Oils I talk about Essential oils also work on all energetic levels of the body and provide a beautiful take home tool (for those not trained in Reiki!) to continue their treatment. Essential oils all have a particular emotional journey that they help us to move along, which is perfect when we want to tackle the underlying emotional causes of our pain, without even necessarily knowing what they are. Interestingly all of the essential oils that have strong analgesic (pain killing) properties also help us with being emotionally stuck, constricted, fearful or controlled, which is so important when we remember that pain is giving us a message to stop and reassess something in our life. My top pick is Rosemary because it is strongly analgesic and also helps to eliminate emotional restrictions that prevent us from moving toward our higher purpose. Other oils that are useful here are: peppermint (especially where you need focus), fennel (especially where you feel unfulfilled), ginger (especially where you feel depleted), lavender (especially where you feel neglected), marjoram (especially where you feel anxious), and
