The Stress Badge Of Honour!

Do You Wear It?

We had a discussion at the clinic recently about stress and being busy. We hear lots of 'oh no, I'm far too busy for that', 'where will I find the time?' or 'I'm so stressed, I'm doing X, Y and Z.'

Smoky QuartzThere seems to be a badge of honour when it comes to stress, like there is some merit if you're fully booked for weeks attending every invite someone gives. Or you're a formidable person for powering through when others can't.

What we're most concerned with as therapists, is the physiological and emotional effects you are left with after all the go go go! Who will look after your body and state of mind if you don't put it first? Stress and strain is your body giving you a sign and we'd all do well to hear our bodies calls a little more. Take a look at our offer of the month and put yourself first.

We Feel Good When You Feel Better

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.

Smoky Quartz

This month we are focusing on the powerful Smokey Quartz crystal and its wonderful STRESS alleviating powers.

Smokey quartz is a transparent quartz that is brown, grey or black. It commonly occurs in quartz veins where it crystallizes inside rock cavities. The characteristic colour of Smokey Quartz occurs in nature when rock crystal quartz is exposed to natural radiation from radioactive elements or adjacent radioactive rocks over long periods of time. I call it my ‘Stress Buster’ as I have found it to help resolve problems and calm the mind. A fantastic crystal to always have with you, helping to combat outward and inward day to day stresses.

Smoky Quartz

It can be worn on the body as jewellery for long periods of time to give strength. In situations of stress, two polished crystals or rough crystals held in each hand will help to balance you. It may dissolve pain - smoky quartz can be laid directly on the afflicted part of the body. Smokey Quartz tumble stones are new in and available for sale at the Amber Zone now. Enjoy and let the crystal do all the hard work.

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!
