I am really pleased to be back doing my Reflexology treatments that I love to do and my clients tell me they love to receive.! Despite all the adaptions to minimise the risk associated with Covid-19, all is going well and the clients feedback is that it is as relaxing as it always was.
One thing I have noticed since lockdown is how many people are looking for help for their emotional needs. A massive amount of fear and anxiety was created and circulated during lockdown . People no longer had the day to day distractions of work and school and it has bought up a range of relationship issues and life issues , including depression , worries about family members, loss of family, feeling isolated and lonely, loss of jobs, feeling demotivated, as well as realising a change of job is now needed, but “what shall I do with my life ? “ I have found the Bach Remedies invaluable in helping people with these sort of issues.
Another big realisation was how important the gut really is for our immune system. I have been reading about this for years now and believed I ate a very healthy diet. However, I got what I believed to be Covid-19 in early April . My family did not ! It got me looking at why - and the answer came over the summer when I realised that my gut was very unhappy. It was cherry season and I am lucky enough to live near to some amazing cherry orchards. At first I didn’t associate the two - my unhappy gut and cherries , until I realised this was an annual occurrence for me !! So I started researching ( as I do ) and discovered that people who are sensitive to the nightshade family of foods are often also sensitive to cherries, apples and beetroot. So I came off them all, and hey presto - my gut became a lot happier. As such , I am expecting my immune system to become stronger .... watch this space ... I will report back as we go through winter .
We have just come out from yet another Lockdown and seem to have bizarre Monsoon-like downpours during this month of May. I am seeing more people with anxiety and depression due to the lockdown. Even children are feeling depressed and are being helped with Bach remedies.
I said I would update you about my gut health and immune system: I have stayed off gluten and the Nightshade foods and my gut health is good. As a result, my immune system is so much better than this time last year. I have worked as a key worker in a Homeopathic Pharmacy throughout Lockdown and have maintained my health. Even when colleagues have had colds or sore throats, I have not !
I discovered Qi gong last year and believe it is excellent for health and the immune system, so I have been practicing that once a week.
My Reflexology practice was put on hold for many weeks due to the Lockdown but we now have the Green Light for Go.... so people can start booking in again. Anyone with Long-covid or Vaccination after-effects could benefit from some reflexology.
Bye for now!
