Evening Appointments With Lydia...

If you're one of those people that would LOVE to fit in a massage but it's just not possible with work or family commitments and you prefer to keep your weekends to yourself, then this is perfect for you!
My name's Lydia and in addition to my usual days, I'll be here on Monday and Thursday evenings from now on.

I provide pregnancy massage treatments that are safe in any stage of your pregnancy and post natal treatments to alleviate the aches and pains that arise after giving birth. My holistic back, neck and shoulder massage or full body massage is always focused on a balance between relaxation and remedial therapy- giving you a wholly nourishing experience coupled with working in to specific sore areas.

Lastly, I'm a student practitioner in fertility massage or womb massage therapy. This is a sacral and upper/lower abdominal massage treatment. In addition to assisting your fertility journey, it can help with digestive issues and menstrual/ menopausal issues. As such, this treatment is for women and I once again like to create a Whole treatment- working with the spiritual alongside the physical. Please do contact us if you have any questions about my treatments or to book your next slot.

Crystal Of The Month

Karen Jenkins has been working with crystals since 2007 as a Crystal Therapist and is still in awe of the power they have. She will be sharing her knowledge of a different crystal each month.

Black Tourmeline

This month we bring to you Black Tourmaline (Schorl). Living in an ‘electronic age’ we accept the energies that are all around us. However, some of us don’t realise these energies can have a detrimental effect on our well-being (mobile phone masts effects having been in the news recently).

One crystal has such properties that it is a must in every household/work place. It seems to be the general consensus that putting a piece of Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz or Smokey Quartz on top of a TV or computer will protect you from these energy waves. Please don’t - these crystals are too gentle for this electronic smog. The crystal's energy gets depleted and will need a lot of cleansing and energising before you can use it again. In most cases the crystals are so depleted that the kindest thing to do would be to bury them and ask Mother Earth to heal them.

One of the most efficient crystals to use as protection from these waves is Black Tourmaline. It can help quench harmful emissions coming from things such as your computer, laptop, tablet or phone. It is worth investing in a reasonably sized Black Tourmaline piece, one roughly 2– 3 inches long. Place it between your computer and yourself and see if you notice a difference. Every few weeks give the crystal a good cleanse in water with a couple of drops of ‘Bach’ Crab Apple Flower Remedy overnight and your crystal will protect you for years to come.

black tourmalineI'm unable to work with my computer without having Black Tourmaline within the vicinity. A laptop burns and makes me feel nauseous. A mobile phone held close to my face causes it to redden and burn. Putting Black Tourmaline between me and the laptop alleviates all symptoms. Be mindful with the electronic equipment you use and be kind to yourself by having a piece of wonderful Black Tourmaline with you.

Black Tormeline

It can be worn in contact with the skin or be laid upon it. Recommended to be worn in the form of jewellery as a barrier for constant protection.
Tumblestones are available at The Amber Zone.

Some questions answered

Q. How long have you been treating?
A. 20 years.

Q. What is your favourite treatment to give and why?
A. I love any treatment but especially one where the client arrives in pain(!) and leaves feeling relieved of that pain and generally feeling better. Our hot stone massage treatment is lovely and I would recommend this to someone seeking relaxation with a little luxury.

Q. What can people expect having received a treatment from you, right after and the following day?
A. Although they might feel a little tender initially, I would expect an improvement within 24 hours. Where necessary, I will give aftercare advice and often ask that the client lets me know how they feel the next day.

Q. Client: "I'm very nervous about having a massage because I'm overweight/ underweight/ have a curved spine/ struggle with anxiety..."
A. Please don't worry! It's important to me that anyone feels they can come to The Amber Zone, and you will be treated with care. This is our priority and we have an array of treatments to suit each client individually. Often, if you're struggling with weight or a curved spine then a massage can be very beneficial. You're in safe hands!
