Covid-19 Update 3 – Back to Work!

Patience pays off and I am back at work (with Covid-19 protocols in place, of course).

Please contact me for massage, relaxation, hypnotherapy, professional massage supervision and massage teaching. It’s all back on the table again.

Through lockdown, my massage supervision sessions moved online and have been a great success. I will be expanding this service to offer more opportunities to practitioners in search of professional support, and am also delighted to be re-starting hands-on, in-person supervision sessions very soon too.

Please get in touch for more information, bookings and getting involved.

With all best wishes,

Covid-19 Wellbeing Update

While I continue to feel well, and in accordance UK Gov / NHS guidelines, I intend to work with clients, supervisees and students who feel well, wish to attend their sessions and are not at high risk to themselves or others.

If you already have a booking, I welcome your choice to attend or not attend, and will appreciate as much notice as possible regarding any postponements and cancellations. If you are in any doubt about whether to keep a booking, please phone me (07976 710368) and we can talk it over.

If you are thinking of booking a session, again please call me and we can discuss whether it’s the right thing to do right now. 

Remember, while I can’t massage you remotely, hypnotherapy works very well via WhatsApp, Facetime, Zoom or Skype.

And as an existing massage or hypnotherapy client, supervisee or student, you may wish to phone me for a brief chat to stay connected during this strange time of increased physical isolation. It’s important we keep the connections that work for us. 

As an ambassador for wellness and health, I feel compelled to share my belief that massage and hypnotherapy are both amazing ways of feeling better physically and mentally, and feeling more connected emotionally and spiritually. The better we feel, the better able we are to cope with the challenges we face, and the greater perspective we can bring to our daily lives. In light of this, while I can work safely I will. 

Let’s stay level-headed and open-hearted 💛

And please enjoy this link regarding massage and the immune system. A study in 2017 at Roehampton University found after a massage, patients’ white blood cell count was increased by 70%. That’s pretty amazing, eh?

BBC Two – Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, Series 8, Episode 5 – Could massage boost your immune system?

Please take care of yourself during this time and don’t hesitate to be in touch if I can be of help.
 
All best wishes,

Smash those Resolutions!

One of the things I keep learning is that it’s OK to ask for help with the things I find difficult. And, not only is it OK, it’s brilliant! Receiving help turns scary into fun and transforms impossible into easier than expected. It’s great to have someone to talk things over with, to share progress with and yes, to celebrate with. Sometimes these people are in our lives already, friends, family, colleagues, associates. Sometimes we need to step outside of our usual zone to find the particular help we need. If you’re determined to smash your awesome new year /  new decade resolutions, perhaps this is the year to do things differently. I am here to help. I’m here with massage. I’m here with hypnotherapy. I’m here to make sure you don’t just get off to a flying start, but that you sustain your efforts and reach your goals. You’ll be surprised how much better you can feel, and how much better life can be. And it doesn’t need to be painful or difficult. ‘No Pain, No Gain’ is an out of date thought process for both massage and talking therapy. Let’s make every day a happy day. I am here to help, but I can’t do anything til you get in touch. Let’s do this! Sarah x

Make Life Better Evening Classes – starting October 29th, Clifton Bristol

Do you want the good news or the great news?

The good news is that (at the time of writing) there’s still time to become part of the next Make Life Better group. We are assembling next Tuesday (29th October) for the first of 4 Tuesday evenings to pay attention to FINDING OUR FOCUS, CHANNELLING OUR CONFIDENCE and MAKING LIFE BETTER. And not making life better in some abstract or even delusional positive thinking way, but better by learning ways to make tangible, noticeable, enjoyable improvements to our own daily lives.  

There are currently 2 places still available. Find out more here…> 

The great news is that by joining the group you won’t only end up making your life better, you’ll contribute to making the lives of everyone in the group better too. Your uniqueness is just what we need. 

And, of course, the ultimate gain from all of this is that when We feel better, think better and do better, this has ripple effects that go out wider than we can ever truly know.  So many positive impacts that we can only wonder about…  

If there’s even a little part of you that’s curious about this, take a leap and join the group. What’s 4 evenings out of an entire life? Enough to make life better, that’s for sure! 

Find out more here…>

I’m looking forward to working with you,

Vessels of Honour

Listening to Oprah’s podcast again, this time with Tim Storey, I’m struck by his phrase, “a vessel of honour”. Those who know me will know my love of words. I love how words sound together, how they conjure up images and feelings, and how the right words at the right time can elevate us to lighter moods and higher outlooks.

So, today I’m being a vessel of honour. And it feels great. To me it means that I set aside my doubts and concerns, my self-pity and my fears, and I fill myself with optimism and possibility. I ask, “What if today was going to be a great day? What if I could let things be easy? What if I could shine like the star I am from now til dusk? What if this blog could pretty much write itself as I allow myself to rise above the fear of judgement and the risk of failure?

Being a vessel of honour asks me to stand a little taller and breathe a little deeper. But it’s not just that. Being a vessel of honour calls me to awaken within and let my heart fully open into the moment. Connecting with my honour stirs my courage. Connecting with my honour reminds me that I have gifts to share and help to offer.

It’s with this openhearted courage that I invite you to the next stop on the Tribe of Thrive train.



If you want to get on with living and thriving; If you need to get unstuck; If anxiety’s holding you back; this 4 week evening class is for you.

A neuroscience-driven, fun and transformative way to get inspired, get focused, get confident and get on. You just need to get booked in. Full details are on my website.

All vessels of honour are welcome. And I’m excited to share this time, this learning and this opportunity with you.  Contact me to reserve your place.

 

Every Good Act is an Expression of Love

I feel humbled several times a day.

Today, as I ran through Horfield Common, listening to Malala Yousafzai talk to Oprah (on SuperSoul Conversations podcast), I was brought to tears.

Malala ignites in me a magnificent sense of awe and wonder at the strength, courage and potential that lies within us as humans. The power of intention. The majesty and the ministry of love.

Every good act on the planet is an expression of love. To be of service to others, and therefore to the world, is to make love manifest.

Malala’s path is to bring education to every girl. Mine feels twofold… to inspire fellow practitioners towards effortless excellence and to ease everyone towards wellness.

I want to live in a Tribe of Thrive. Do you want to join?
