Foam Rolling Class

This is a one off class where you will learn all the best “do’s and don’ts” when it comes to foam rolling.

Foam Rolling is widely know to be very effective and used to prevent, treat and preempt injury related to exercise. If you run, cycle, swim, walk, gym, or go to circuit class you will inevitably carry some tightness, tension or discomfort. These distractions can be successfully compared with regular use of a Foam Roller.

In this class I will address common injuries and discomforts in the lower back, hips, thighs, and feet. At home it takes about 10-15 mins once or twice a week to keep these niggles and injury at bay. Anybody can use a Foam Roller and everybody can benefit from it’s therapeutic effect.After attending this class the person should feel they have the necessary tools and knowledge to combat their discomforts.


The class is 1.5 hours long. It will begin with an introduction to foam rolling, then an exploration of the techniques for specific areas and it will finish with a Q&A session. 

All participants need to bring a Foam Roller, some water and a work out mat. The class will be help in River Holistic on Wednesday the 20th of March from 8-9.30pm

Essential oils : The best stress relievers

Essential Oils: The Best Stress Relievers

 

Essential Oils became one of the trending ways on how a person can easily relieve from stress. They are frequently used for aromatherapy which is a popular complementary therapy since it can stimulate emotional responses by using our sense of smell.

These essential oils are the best remedy for stress because they are all natural which are taken from flowers and other herbal plants. They are pure essential oils without any chemicals added, and this is one of the reasons why it gives more relief and somehow healing effect to some illness especially when dealing with anxiety and stress.

Anxiety is also difficult to face especially if you are already stressed out and exhausted as it could really affect the emotional and intellectual aspect of a person. And these essential oils can be used as a great reliever from severe anxiety.

According to some reviews, a lot of patients who suffered from anxiety and depression who has undergone aromatherapy massage became more effective therapy rather than just doing a simple massage alone. Now, let me give you some popular essential oils that are being used for anxiety relief:

  1. Lavender

Lavenders are counted and become one of the most popular essential oil as it provides a relaxing outcome especially to our nervous system and somehow relieves sleep disorders, tensions, panic attacks and a lot more.

  1. Rose

Rose essential oil is very helpful oil for persons dealing with emotional stress, which are the most common, especially to women. It is considered the second popular essential oils for anxiety, stress, and depression.

  1. Vetiver

Vetiver essential oil provides tranquility effect which is commonly used from helping a person who suffers trauma. It provides calmness and awareness.

  1. Ylang Ylang

This is also one of the most popular oil that can definitely treat anxiety and depression as it can help a person uplift his or her personality as it gives positive aura and calmness. It can also be a great remedy from insomnia.

  1. Bergamot

Bergamot is can actually be extracted in teas called Earl Grey. It has floral taste and of course, has a great aroma smell which is good for calming as it gives energy and soothing effect.

There are a lot of essential oils out there, but these are just the popular ones that we use here at the centre, either diffusing them in reception or as part of the blends that our Aromatherapists can make up for you during your treatment. Chamomile and Frankincense are also considered as popular oils good for meditation and inner peace as well, including them on the Top 5 essential oils being used these days.

So if you’re stressed out and exhausted, why not try aromatherapy massage with these helpful essential oils. Help yourself as well and lessen your anxiety. I know you are tired but you deserve to unwind as well. Try these essential oils now and lessen those stresses out there.

A little bit about Marliena

The shape of LOVE – Art workshop

 About Marilena Pilla:

“Since I was a child I have always been surrounded by Art and I was longing to be able to express myself through it one day.So I studied Set Design at the Accademy of Art in Bologna and the last year I  was granted a scholarship for Furniture Design, at the London Guildhall University, in London.Then I returned to my country where I developed my own style. Here at the Academy of Art in Brera Milan, in order to achieve greater knowledge, I discovered Art Therapy .I have found  my way and fulfilled my dream: being able to help people all over the world.”

“I have a Degree in Set Design, and after teaching Art History in the high School, I started to be passionate about Art Therapy when I saw how was good the art on me. In the same period I studied to become an Holistic operator.

After studying Art Therapy, I started to do different workshops, one dedicated to the anger for kids, at the Primary school, then

“The rel-action” with people with the Down syndrome, and one for the violence on women. I continue to do workshops also at school.

My dream is to do Art Therapy around the world, and so I started this big adventure, but doing my work in an holistic way.  The birth of my children, took me on a path that all  has to be “exploration”.

Today I still teach art, but in a new way, I want to explore all the feeling we have inside, and take them out.

In Italy she ‘s doing

“Birth and Re-Birth”

“The black wolf”

And others will arrive.”

The big dreamer, Marilena

The perfect course to get you back to what you love.

The therapist business workshop

I have decided to bring back my Therapist business workshop on February 10th 2019.
Come to this informal open workshop where I will answer all the questions that have been running around in your head about what is required for your soon to be thriving therapy business.

As therapists we were all trained how to be a therapist but not necessarily how to build your practice.
This one day workshop will cover all of the basic needs that any therapist either just starting out or looking to expand their business will need.
From registering your business with CRO and ROS.
Understanding how to make social media work for you not against you.
Give you some tools to help with your work life balance.
Discuss the importance of creating an active and relevant online presence.
Show you how you do no need to spend a fortune when taking the next step.
These are just a few of the topics that will be covered.
The day is for you so there will be plenty of time for questions and hopefully at the end of the day you should have most of the tools to get you loving the business side as much as you love doing your therapies.

lymph system help

some simple ways to help your lymph system

Your lymph system is a very important system in your body that is composed of tissues and fluids that run throughout your entire body (much like your circulation system). However, your lymph system does not have the help of your heart to keep things pumping and moving throughout your body. Therefore, it is vital to make sure that you are helping your lymph system release and empty fluids to avoid any toxic build up (which can leave you feeling weak and unwell).

 

When your lymph system gets congested, it leads to your lymph nodes swelling, which causes pains and aches throughout your body. It will also result in your liver and kidneys becoming toxic, because the toxins and chemicals from your lymphatic system aren’t draining properly. As a result, this can lead to weight gain, poor circulation, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, and being sick more often… among many other things!

Luckily, there are quite a few easy ways that you can stimulate your lymph system every day to release toxins and cleanse your body.

Here are some simple ways to help your lymph system that can be incorporated into your daily routine.

  1. Drink a cup of warm water with a slice of raw fruit: Eating raw (uncooked) fruits on an empty stomach will allow the enzymes and acids in the fruit to have a detoxifying effect on your system. Grapefruit, lemon and lime work incredibly well to stimulate the lymph system to drain.
  2. Skin Brushing: This can be easily done before a shower by taking a dry brush and gently massaging your entire body using small circular movements always working up towards the heart. This not only will exfoliate your skin, but will also invigorate your lymph system.
  3. Hot And Cold Showers: While showering, switch from using hot water to cold water. The frequent change in temperature will stimulate your lymph system to move as well as your circulation by expanding and contracting your body’s blood vessels.
  4. Exercise: By walking briskly or engaging in intense exercise every day, you will encourage the lymph system and lymph fluids to circulate to your kidney and liver so that they can be filtered and released from your body. This is were hydration is key, to help the body eliminate everything with ease.
  5. Drink Water: To help remove toxins and chemicals, your body needs plenty of water to filter the lymphatic system! Drinking water throughout the day will ensure your body is not only hydrated, but also detoxifying the elements that can make you feel lousy.
  6. Massage: Not like you need another excuse to get a massage, but a massage (especially deep tissue or MLD) works to move the lymphatic tissue to drain. It basically “squeezes” the lymph system to release impurities and make room for healthy nutrients to come in and keep your system healthy and functioning properly.
  7. Laughter: Getting the giggles causes you to take deeper breathes. As a result, this stimulates your lungs and circulation to work together with the lymph system!
