Message From Helen

“Empowering You and Your Family”

In my massage room, it is one-on-one with a client.  For me it is special to be able to help people that have pain, feel stressed, stuck, fatigue and trauma.  Others need relaxation, and some need help at a deeply emotional level and we can do that.

Massage is one way for me to make a difference and I love my massage work.  As a young mum with 4 little kids, life was hectic.  The day I had my first massage was the day I felt so good that I thought to myself, if all mums could have massage they would all feel good too!

Three months later I went to Adelaide on my own to learn professional massage.  I started my own massage business and became busy very quickly.  Every time I went back to Adelaide I always learned more about myself and would go home inspired.

Helping my family and helping my clients was fabulous and the more I learned, the more I found ways to help others.  One-on-one is fabulous but I want to help more; I want to help everybody!  Then my book “Empowering You and Your Family” came to life so now I can give this to you too.

Some of you will not be ready yet and that’s ok.  Others will take it on and will want more.  I can give you more if you want your freedom!  This comes from my experience over the last 19 years.  Now my book is a reality and is at the printer!

I have been writing my book over the last 12 months, as you may be aware.  The last 19 years of experience is where all my inspiration has come from, and massage and coaching are the perfect match.

The muscles hold the physical and emotional stress in the fibres.  Have you noticed that when you are stuck you find life difficult and so hard to move forward?  This happens because often the body is in pain, fatigued and overwhelmed, along with headaches.  Is blaming others a common complaint?

Some great feedback is coming through after reading my book and asking for their input.  They asked if the part you talked about in the book was what we talked about, and yes, that’s right.  I now understand more about why I saw my life that way and why I felt like crying after the session.  It was a release, built up after many years of suffering.  So the book is not to tell you it is this way, but more about opening your heart and mind to what is really important to you.

For people that had done coaching with me, this is a way to keep letting go of what you don’t want, getting a deeper understanding of why you do what you do.  The way we think is the way we act.  At the new website (coming soon — you’ll be the first to hear when it goes live) EmpoweringYourFamily.com.au, you can get your copy by pre-buying your book, and it does come in a PDF format so you can read the book right now!  You can also stay connected by going to Chelseamassage.com.au and HelenBrougham.com.au to read the blog.

Quick Tips


Tip #34:  What is a Migraine and What You Should Do to Fix the Problem

Many who get migraines come from stressful jobs, have muscle tension, trauma or often have had an accident.  Remedial Massage unlocks the muscles that have become restricted.

It is not just one leg or the right shoulder, but an overall holistic approach of what is happening in your body.  Looking at the overall you, not just what happened last week, but looking at your whole life; what you have been lifting and shifting, traumas, stresses in your life.

The built up tension can come on very quickly and over time becomes harder to control.  Stop when you feel them coming on.  Don’t have a massage when you are in the middle of the migraine as driving can be dangerous.  It can limit you in being able to see well so please stay at home in a dark room, which is better.  After the migraine has passed, this is the time to come and have your massage to unlock the muscles.


Tip #25:  Party Shoes for the Party Season

It is the beginning of the party season!  Are you wondering what you can do to keep your feet from aching?  If you want to wear those shoes, let’s make that happen.

You want to prevent damage to your cuff, twisting and going over onto your ankle, pain in your arches, and sores under your toes.  What really helps when you’re wearing high heels?

When your centre of gravity is in balance, it helps you look and walk taller and more elegantly.  Massage releases the tension in the muscles so muscles stay strong and it helps to prevent leg and foot damage, as well as releases your lower back and helps your tummy to stop sticking out.

Another fashion is the very flat sandals with hard soles which have no cushion for the muscles, causing the bones to get very tender.  The lower legs, after having a little bit of heel during the week in walking shoes, can cause pulling and causes a jarring into the knees.  Time to get those muscles relaxed so you can have a great time!

Let us know of all the ways we can help you by completing this important, short survey that can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7G73X56

Feature Article

“What’s Happening in 2012?”

I am on a Mission!  I have done lots of courses around creating income to be debt free, have money in the bank, and no more worrying about that big bill coming in.  Is Money working for me or am I working for it — Money?

This week I have taken another LEAP forward to a new higher level program with my coach and mentor in 2012.  I will be writing more on Facebook and asking you what else I can help you with.  I have also been online with my 2 main websites for a few years.

I have had many of you ask when I was going to start my own coaching program and some have asked for an online program.  We now have Kajabi, which is a membership program that is easy to access and you have one place you can go to anytime to see all the information in one area.

I have bought many programs over the years, received emails every week and they get lost.  Trying to find that email from months ago with that program you wanted to read again is hard to do.

This is my way of keeping it all together under one area with easy access.  Where you can ask questions on massage and muscle problems.  I’ll keep you posted on what happens with my Kajabi membership site.

Chelsea Massage will be growing and is a lovely place to be!

You don’t have to give your name when you complete the survey.  I can only help you by you sharing what is happening for you.

Go to the ChelseaMassage.com.au website and then click on the Facebook icon if you would like to share what you experienced or what problem you have that needs solving.  Or you can email us at [email protected]au. Be on the lookout in the next newsletter for more information about our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channel which are now up and running. I look forward to your comments! This Newsletter is to share with anyone you think might benefit from reading it, where we can help, and please keep the emails coming in! On the Facebook page there is a “Like” button that you can click on and you’ll find something else, just for you, there too!

About The Author: Helen Brougham

Helen Brougham has been professionally massaging clients for over 19 years. She has a holistic approach to therapeutic massage, using her coaching expertise to teach people how to successfully make changes in their health and personal lives.

Myofascial Cupping was recently added to her practice.  Instead of using a flame to make the suction, myofascial cupping is a suction-type action which is much more gentle but still very powerful in releasing tension.  Her passion is massaging and teaching Mums how to be calm and positive with themselves and with their children using the same massage techniques she uses in her Chelsea Massage clinic.

Practitioner: Lara Brougham
Lara has been professionally massaging for over 10 years. She specialises in ankle, back and shoulder injuries as well as healing clients with lower back pain. Even the oldest of our clients, who is 96 years old, down to the youngest such as 5 year old children, have aches and pain problems. Lara makes a huge amount of difference so they can sleep at night and start enjoying life again.

You will not find this information in a book, it comes from my experiences. Lara and I would like to find out how we can help you by asking you to take this short survey by clicking here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9K2TNXJ

Thank you to the many of you who have filled out the survey. Please, any others who would like to complete the short survey, we would appreciate your thoughts. This is the way we get to more of what you really want and need.

Pregnancy Massage

Remember that we also specialise in Pregnancy Massage.

I know remedial massage releases the aches and discomcomfort in your upper body but also soothes your aching feet, all while relaxing and energising you, leaving you feeling lighter and more comfortable.  It’s all about having a relaxed, easy-going, fabulous experience being pregnant, and having a natural, relaxed and easy birth — until you have experienced this level of fatigue and tireness it is hard to believe.  And this gives you a sleeping, 8 hours a night, happy and healthy baby and Mum!

This is not meant to alarm you but I have seen and heard many mums that are not coping well.  All the dreadful stories from TV are talking about how parents are not coping; the professionals know and can see all these reasons why, using big words for all the problems they have.  In the UK health system, these mums are getting massage once a week after birth.  What about Australia’s mums?

If you are fatigued before and while pregnant, you’ll be fatigued when you’re going home from the hospital.  You’re leaving yourself wide open to baby not sleeping, not feeding, sickness, being traumatised, a screaming baby and a worn out mum.  You’ll not be coping well — and this is all preventable.  Getting that low is a real struggle to pull yourself out of this hole, and others are told to take tablets but it’s just a Band Aid.

From my experience as a mum of 4 children, watching many, many mums over the last nearly 20 years as a professional massage practitioner, and massaging pregnant mums all the way to mums with small children, adult children, my own 3 grandchildren at their start in life, and many of my friends and family members — regular massage turned around these Mums’ recovery very quickly.

Go to our Contact Page now to book a Pregnancy Massage or give a gift voucher to someone that needs it.

Hey, I know you have been working really hard and if it’s important to keep your body from becoming tight and in pain, when you start to get uncomfortable and are not able to sleep then we need to address it asap… otherwise you will be in for real trouble!

Those sore shoulders, tight back, neck and pain down the outside of your legs are not going to go away.  Rolling over wakes you up, stiff legs and cramping feet can become an all-out nightmare of injuries.  After-care massage is important too — the last thing you need is to have what they call the baby blues, fatigue or be stressed!

Here’s the deal; if you’re feeling tight or sore, give us a call and come in.  We will give you a tune up and have you feeling like a 21 year old again!
