June 2019 Newsletter

June 2019 Newsletter

It is almost the first of June and officially the start of winter.

This month I would like to focus on healing, especially energy healing.  Keeping your mind, body and spirit healthy can ward off the nasty winter illnesses.

Reiki, Aura, and Body Memory

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, which promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the concept of an unseen “life force energy” that flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Our bodies remember every one of our life experiences – joyful experiences like the exhilaration of jumping on the trampoline, or the excitement of a first kiss. However, they also remember the less joyful times – the feeling of being bullied at school, the trauma of a car crash, grief over a death in the family or the loss of a loved one.

Our bodies remember these things because each of us has an energy body or ‘aura’ interconnected with our physical bodies – a dynamic vibrational matrix containing our mental, emotional, and spiritual histories.
In an ideal world, when trauma or deep feelings affect us, we experience and understand those feelings, and then discharge and release the energy. However, often we don’t fully accept or deal with our inner responses at the time – sometimes we suppress and block the flow of energy and bury the memory and the feelings.

The vibration of the trauma then becomes embedded into our bodies and woven into our muscles, joints and organs. These blocked feelings of guilt, shame, pain and fear become the tensions in our bodies, the illnesses and diseases we don’t understand.

Releasing blocked energy from our bodies is a vital part of cultivating good health and well-being. We might work with therapists or healers or do whatever inner work to which we are drawn, to understand and process our feelings and experiences. But discharging the holding from our bodies is a vital step in the process that is very often overlooked.

Reiki is one of the ways of doing this. It’s a deeply healing practice for well-being. It resonates vibrationally with each of your 7 main chakras – the energy centers that regulate your whole mind-body-spirit energy system.

Among many therapies I have tried over the last couple of years, have I always fallen back on energy healing treatments. I have also  been working with an incredible Doctor the last couple of months, who specialises in BWRT therapy and Brainspotting therapy  trying to discharge of all the trapped emotional trauma in my own life.

Since I was diagnosed with Temporal lobe epilepsy, I’ve been trying to understand exactly why and how it occurs, how it works and how to manage it effectively and more importantly, in a holistic way. As it’s not just an emotional struggle, but a physical one too and I must say the therapy has been profound. During the sessions there is often a release of emotion that takes place, most of the time there is a memory, an image, or a knowing of some kind that arises at the time. As the old energy is discharged, my body feels more fluid and free. Each time I release another trapped feeling, I let go of an old pattern and I am freed up to be more present in the moment. And I feel more alive than ever before.

Why not start in your own life with something as simple as a Reiki session to release blocked emotional energy that’s been holding you back in your life?

Re-tune and re-balance your chakra’s, restoring your whole energy system to a healthier state of vibrancy and balance. Let go of what no longer serves you and awaken strengths that have been lying dormant within you. Slowly but surely, you’ll start to feel more fully yourself again.

For those who are a bit sceptical to try Reiki, we’ve decided to help the decision-making process by  offering either a Reiki or Reflexology session when booking the June promotion. Reflexology needs no introduction, as it’s a well-known alternative healing technique to release blockages in specific areas by applying pressure to the feet.

In celebration of our 4 year Birthday here at Woodlands Spa, we are running another promotion for June as well.

Come fight the winter blues with our warming Hot Stone Massage promotion. 90min full body hot stone massage with a 30min express facial and a light lunch. All for R900 per person.

I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I have taken over the Spa. It has exceeded my wildest dreams, the growth year after year is just unbelievable and I am so grateful to my amazing team of staff for all the hard work they have put in over the years to ensure all our valued guests keep on returning.

I have also decided to run a weekday promotion for June, July and August, as those are generally our quieter days during the winter months, so why not take advantage and book for you and a friend or loved one?Receive 25% off when booking two half day or full day experiences.

Due to popular demand have we also decided to extend our MomCation for the month of June, why not round up all your mom friends and join us for this spectacular promotion?

Then we have some other exciting news. One of my team members Megon Schutte is in the running for the Mrs South Africa title and Woodlands is one of her sponsors, if you would like to support her please follow this link to like the MRS SA FACEBOOK PAGE and then click on her photo Megon Schutte to vote for her.

I wish everyone a healthy start to winter and hope that if you are in a place of emotional struggle to find the courage within yourself to seek help holistically. I am testament that it does change your life and the growth you experience is exponential.

Love, Tania
