Message From Helen


Autumn In Australia - Staying Healthy During the Change of Seasons

Message From Helen …


The change in weather is bringing out cold and flu season again. Some people go get a flu injection to help prevent them from getting the flu. Even though there are no injections to help prevent colds, you can do things to help your immune system stay as strong as possible without the possible risks associated with flu injections!

I was speaking with a client about this the other day at the Clinic. He told me that when he has a massage now and keeps having regular massage (he has massage once every fortnight) throughout the autumn and winter, he doesn’t get sick during winter anymore and everybody else around him does. Since he doesn’t want to have a bunch of sick people around him, he’s been telling EVERYONE about the benefits he's been getting from having regular massage!

Here’s a quick tip to help you stay healthier during the change of seasons. When you leave work put your coat and scarf on before leaving the building or car. Be sure to bundle up and stay as warm and dry as possible. If you do get chilled or wet, be sure to warm up as quickly as possible and change into dry clothes. Sounds old fashioned, right ..???  It really does make a difference!

And just so that you know, yes, we do have a lovely warm room ready for you when you are having your massage! All you have to do is remember to bring your coat and scarf with you :)

Quick Tips

 Helen Tip #72: What To Do When You Are Having BAD Dreams

We dream all the time, whether we remember those dreams or not. But what happens when you do remember a dream and it was a really BAD dream? When we are under a lot of stress, dreams can be much more negative .. far more negative than anything that would be happening in real life.

Here's a simple technique that I learned to use for myself whenever I had bad dreams. I also taught my children how to use it and it helped them a lot!!

When you (or your children) have those kinds of dreams, stop for 5 seconds and replay what you remember of the dream on a mental TV screen. BUT … this time play the story with a happy ending!! This will leave you in a happier place about that story from then on.

Lara Tip #65: Money Fears – What To Do To Get Back In Control

Plagued by money FEARS? Are you lying awake at night, scared and worried that you just don’t have enough money to pay all of the bills, to take care of all your financial obligations, to take care of yourself and your family? Those feelings can become OVERWHELMING very easily. Money is such a hot button for most people.

I have heard some people define FEAR as:

F – False
E – Evidence
A – Appearing
R – Real

There is only ONE way to get control back when you are dealing with money fears. You have got to sit down, and take stock of EVERYTHING that has to do with your finances. You have got to get REAL about everything!!

You need to have the REAL and ACTUAL numbers of what is going on – how much money you are earning, how much you are spending, how much you are saving, how much you are paying for everything, how far behind you really are.

Until you have the REAL numbers, you are FEAR’S prisoner. Getting the REAL numbers is NOT a lot of fun, it can be emotionally draining – BUT – on the other side of that FEAR, you will find peace of mind because you KNOW exactly what’s going on with your money and you don’t have to listen to some made up story in your own head any more.

I know people who haven’t opened up a bill in MONTHS and they have no clue what their finances really look like … only that they don’t have enough money to pay their bills at the end of the month. I have given them the same advise that I am going to give you right now – those who did the work got things under control – those who are still refusing to look at their bills are still out of control.

Start going through every bank and credit card statement. You will be surprised at just how often there are payment that could be reduced or cancelled – for example – the monthly gym membership that you are not using or extra services for your cell phone that aren’t necessary and are just eating up money every month. Cancel whatever you can to make those payments as small as possible. Look for errors in the billing itself. Write everything down – how much debt you are stating with and how you are going to pay if off. Create a repayment plan and stick to it.
You need to be powerful and ruthless with those bills. Use your magnificent mind to find creative ways to generate some extra cash. Maybe you need to ask for a raise at work? Maybe you need to get a part-time job? Maybe you need to start your own "Kitchen Table Business"? Maybe a weekend garage sale would be helpful?
Pay those bills down as quickly as possible. Create a budget for you and your family. Stick to it!! Impulse buying does not work. Create a plan for the things you want to buy, that way you will be in control. Just imagine what it would feel like to have the cash in hand to buy what you need without being fearful of not having enough money to pay for it when the credit card bill comes in.

Clear headedness is important when you are dealing with something as big as this. Come in and have a massage. When you leave, you will be pain-free, focused and have enough energy to tackle this project calmly and productively!


Feature Article – Empowering The Family Man & Relationships

(new book coming out)

Children know and learn how to be with both parents. They know which parent will say “yes”, and which parent will say “no” when they ask for something. Children will always measure and test each parent to see just how far they can go to get the answer they want. Most times, parents don’t even realize that they are locked in to what they say.

Our children are incredibly bright young people. They seem to instinctively know when we are busy and it’s a good time to slip in what they want because we’re not fully concentrating on them.
What’s even more ironic, this happens because we are the ones that grew up feeling guilty, fearful, not good enough and overwhelmed. In our wisdom, we did not want to have the same thing happen to our children. So, we gave them freedom and instilled in them the self-confidence to know that they can do anything.

And, our brilliant children have worked out how to use all of that guilt, fear and overwhelm on us, their parents, with amazing results. From one parent to another, the next time you find yourself thinking, “I did not have that when I was growing up and I want my children to have it (or do it)”, PLEASE just say no and go get it for yourself!! YOU are the one who is still suffering as a child. So get whatever “that” is for yourself and KNOW your children are already richly blessed by what you have given them.

I’m seeing a lot of clients now who gave their children everything they ever asked for. Sadly, those children are not giving anything back to their parents because they don’t know how to do that. As children they never learned how to get anything for themselves because everything they asked for was GIVEN to them. They did not learn how to work for what they wanted. They did not learn how earn what they wanted.  And they did not learn the value of giving back.

They watch us give but they don’t see us receive. They have no idea about where the money comes from to fund all of their requests. Parents get frustrated with each other for “giving in” when a child gets what they want from the other parent after being told no by the first.  This causes an upset between both parents. The best way to avoid this is to have an agreed upon set of rules that apply to both parents.

A simple thing to your children is, “Dad (or Mum) and I will have a discussion about this and let you know what our decision is.” End of story.

Think about how empowering it would be to have a peaceful, graceful out and have the time to think about and discuss the issue calmly with your partner.

In the past children heard, “You wait till your Dad come home!!” This left the children fearful and with no kind, loving connection. By taking an empowered partnership approach, Dad and Mum now can work together for mutual success! And to me, that is VERY exciting!!

Pregnancy – Relaxation & Remedial Massage Get Results
12 Tips for Coping With Stress During Pregnancy
Below are listed several techniques that both women and their husbands/partners have found useful in helping to relieve the sense that life is going into overwhelm.

Gaining confidence in your life: Sit back a little and admire what you have achieved already. Often things don’t quite go the way we were told they would and we don’t understand why …

In the first ten parts of this series we discussed …
Part 1. First, take a look at all the activities you do in your life Monday to Sunday — morning, afternoon and night time.

Part 2. When becoming pregnant, you will be coping as you normally do. Be sure to rest and put your feet up help with any swelling in your feet and ankles.

Part 3. Be prepared to give up some control over the life-style you have worked so hard to attain. Many things about pregnancy are not in your control. 

Part 4. Take a little time and reassess where you are up to each week and allow your husband’s/partner’s input and care to help you with your decisions about where you are up to.

Part 5.  If you are tired of being tired, massage works so well.

Part 6. Reading books, looking at magazines, and watching videos about pregnancy

Part 7.   Take A Step Back And Relax
Part 8. Pregnancy Yoga Classes – Learn Correct Breathing and Relaxation Techniques

Part 9. Go With The Flow Of Wellness – Pregnancy is a fun time! Many hear about mums-to-be being sick and having a hard time, but I’m here to tell you some great news … it does not need to be that way.
Part 10. Late In Your Pregnancy, Birth and Being Home

Tip 11. The Everyday Pregnant Mum
Here are some of the everyday things about pregnancy that are seldom discussed because very few people know about them :)

You JUST found out that you are pregnant and you are TIRED! No, it’s NOT in your head!!

Being tired is a symptom of being pregnant. Your body has more important things to do now!! Many of the things that have been “normal” in your life just aren’t that important right now. Your body is on a primary mission – growing a little baby to perfection – and is intelligent enough to use all of the resources it needs to ensure the best for your growing baby! Mum, you will feel tired so put your feet up, learn to be still and enjoy the experience!

This does not mean you have to stop being in life – working, doing Yoga, walking around the block, doing the other things you like to do –  but it does mean you cannot do a high level, extreme workout and overload your body while it’s busy growing a baby at the same time

Get your life balanced so that everything works in harmony!

"Gosh, I feel FAT!! My clothes don't fit anymore!!" No … You are NOT fat! YOU are PREGNANT!!

During the first few months of your pregnancy you will think that you don’t look pregnant and keep pushing yourself into your normal clothes until they start to feel real tight. My daughter reminded me of this a couple of weeks ago (she was at 21 weeks) when she said, “I feel FAT!!” I simply said, “No you’re pregnant and your clothes are getting tight!”

It’s not good for you and not good for baby to be restricted across the lower stomach area. It’s time to go out and buy some new clothes that fit COMFORTABLY! You can always use the same clothes for your next pregnancy.

Look for clothes that can also be worn after birth. Remember that you will need some extra room for your upper body area to allow more room for larger breasts. Look for clothes that are easy to open in the front for breastfeeding and for easy overall movement. Stretchy material is a wonderful thing :)

The female body was designed to have babies. First time Mums-to-be have a hard time adjusting to all of these new experiences – be patient with yourself. Everything gets easier. Do your best to stay calm and peaceful!  Baby really does know when all is not right with Mum!

As the classic saying goes … “Happy Mum, Happy Dad, Peaceful Environment  … Happy Baby!!

Women's Coaching


Many clients have had the bonus of having Massage and Coaching all at the same time! And, while this hand in hand combination works so well, many have said that after a while what they really need is more coaching than massage! So, because so many people have requested additional coaching only services, I’ve decided to offer coaching in the clinic as a separate service and online through Skype!

I have learned through my own experiences and from my clients’ feedback that when you’re stuck, it is wise to get unstuck quickly and stop the suffering as fast as possible. It doesn’t take long to spiral down into the deep black hole of emotional upset and overwhelm. And once you are stuck down there, it takes a lot longer to return from the depths of despair and have fun back in your life.

We will work together to figure out what is holding you stuck in a pattern of despair, frustration, overwhelm, anger, or aloneness. If you are feeling lost and uncertain of what to do next, together we will figure out what your next steps are to get you back to your happy, healthy, balanced self.

Imagine what it would feel like to be in control again and not be in a constant state of worry about money, about how you are processing the loss of a loved one, about dealing with a relationship that has changed, about challenges with work! Think about how much relief you will feel when the little voice in your head STOPS talking so much about negative stuff and sadness.

Myofascial Cupping


The celebrities are having cupping done all the time. It is a different treatment that does go along with massage very well. We are seeing great results with pregnancy and aching legs, also with back pain related to when the back is out of alignment. The treatment is safe, uses suction and measurable treatment.

Many different cultures use cupping with flame inside the glass jar or cup treatment. However, it is really important to very cautious when using a flame with this treatment because it has been known to burn the skin.
Thanks to the Sunday Herald  for the cupping story and picture
