Why Try Therapy?


I must admit as a former massage therapist and natural hair care technician, customers bring their issues to the salon and spa. While your barbers, cosmetologist, massage therapist, esthetician’s and nail technicians will listen to your problems, the feedback might not be impact a change in your life. At the end of the day you’re the only one who will implement the change.

Therapist and counselors not only here to listen, they assist in giving feedback that is useful proven to work- if you do the work.

There are a plethora of meditation modalities. Tap into your spirit side by practicing mindfulness, quiet the “Monkey Mind” and utilize simple meditation practices. Learn to find balance in the midst of a storm. When it comes to meditation, consistency is key.

Life Transitions such as a new job, job loss, divorce, a new baby, or death of a loved one are significant changes that can be positively effected by the therapy.

1) Exercise- A good sleep occurs when you have had a fulfilling day of dynamic activity.

2) Diet- Not just a healthy diet, but try a high freguency food diet. Remember, no food two hours before sleeping.

3) Also, two hours before sleepy time avoid exercise, and overly stimulating media (e.g. violent movies and uptempo music). It’s best avoid any type of television or social media activity two hours prior to sleep.

4) Try taking a warm bath with relaxing essential oils: lavender, lemon bergamot, ylang ylang, clary sage, and jasmine.

5) Set your internal biological clock: Go to sleep the same time every night. Trying going to sleep before 10:00 PM. Your biological clock changes after 10:00 PM. The National Institute of Health notes, “Circadian rhythms can influence sleep-wake cycles, hormone release, body temperature and other important bodily functions. They have been linked to various sleep disorders, such as insomnia.” So, following your body’s routine is a successful key to a restful sleep.

6) Go an extra mile into a blissful sleep: Use meditation or deep breathing before sleeping. You can use a guided meditation app.

I know this is easily typed and than to carryout, but it is my recommendation to client’s who have trouble sleeping. I’ve tried it myself; so, I stand by this recommendation.

Spend some quality time with yourself!

Happy blissful sleeping trails💙

“Titty Grow”- A testimony to the power of talking.

 

imageIn my formative years I admired the women that I saw in the media and magazines like most little girls, but one feature I truly desired was breast. Having breast would make me a woman. Gratefully for me, I had an older cousin and an older brother who sought to help me on my journey to becoming a woman.

My trusting and loving kin taught me that eating jalapeños, hot sauce and anything hot would get me the bosom I so desired. They fed me concoctions of hot sauce and peppers. What agonizing pain I endured until I told my mother, in some kind of way, that the “titty grow” was not working. Needless to say I no longer ate hot sauce and peppers in order to grow breast because my mother stop my cousin and brother from giving me this concoction.

My mother told me I would grow breast in time, and all females would grow breast- it is a part of nature. She gave me a hug and told me to be patient. I didn’t go throw the phase of wanting breasts again until middle school. I never talked about the hot sauce concoctions, and I didn’t eat hot food. It was not until I open my mouth and told my story of why I did not like spicy food that I begin to be able to laugh about this period in my life.

My point is, once I begin to talk about my painful memory, I started to actually eat mildly spicy food. The liberation of sharing my uncomfortable story was similar to peeling back an onion and exposing the ugly truth, hence leading me to try spicy foods. So, I tell my story unapologetically, and I encourage you to share yours.
