Spring Your Body Into Clean | Healthy Changes

As we now enter Spring in full force, it is a good time to clean out the winter cobwebs, not just in our homes, but our bodies as well. Through the winter people tend to nourish themselves with comfort foods. These heavier foods are appealing especially for those of us that live in cold climates. As Spring settles in and we head into the warm months, it’s good to clean out and lighten up a bit. There are many ways to do this from the extreme cleansing enthusiasts who jump into a multiple day juice cleanse to the more gentle spirit who simply incorporates more water daily to help flush those hard working kidneys.

Here are a 5 ways you can help move your body into the next season:

  1. Eat fresh greens: Baby greens, dandelion greens, baby kale and chard.
  2. Berries, berries, and more berries: As the lush variety of berries begin to come into season, enjoy! They are full of antioxidants and are extremely cleansing to help you flush out the winter doldrums.
  3. Asparagus: Go ahead and risk the stinky pee. Your kidneys will thank you! This natural diuretic has anti-inflammatory properties that make it perfect for a spring fling.
  4. fresh airAnd of course hydrate: Drink plenty of water to help flush winter and any accumulated toxins out of your body. Make your water fun by adding, cucumbers, lemons, any citrus combination, or berries. The possibilities are endless.
  5. And finally, get outside and move: Walk, bike, or whatever your outdoor pleasure…After being cooped up indoors for all winter, your skin will love the sun. Your lungs will love the are. And your whole body, head to toe will love the increased circulation.

Most of all, enjoy the new season!

Quick Health Tip | 5 Breaths

Health Quick Tip By Leslie Kemp
MSI Instructor

One of the simplest things you can do that will have a dramatic effect on your dietary experience is to take 5 deep breaths before eating a meal or snack. This simple technique can be applied anywhere, anytime.

 

 

 

Benefits of taking 5 deep breaths before eating a meal or snack…

  •  It will allow you to connect with your food, bringing focus and added enjoyment to your meal. With this connection you are more likely to taste what you are eating and because you are more aware and centered in your body, you will better be able to gauge when you are full or still hungry so as not to over or under eat. As a nice side effect, being connected with your core, helps you to naturally make wiser choices while feeding your self. Remember anywhere you add breath, you add awareness.
  • Centering and calming your self before eating, will also aid indigestion. A
  • Relaxed system, with increased oxygen flow, is more receptive to nutrient absorption and less likely to experience indigestion.

So relax, breath, and bon appetite!

IET Training Chicago

What is IET Training? | Integrated Energy Therapy Illinois

IET stands for Integrated Energy Therapy, literally integrating the healing energy of the angels into a hands on therapy. Angel energy is the energy of compassion and love.  IET is for everyone who wants to learn more about energy medicine and energy flow. This 8 hour training course is not only for Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) but also for Moms, dads, nurses, and teachers. Everyone can benefit from this gentle self-care tool.    These techniques work because they are so gentle, loving and easy. You can just relax and let the angels do the work.

 What you will learn in the IET training course at MSI Wellness Center:

  • The 9 cellular memory centers. These are similar to the chakras and aligned with acupressure points. These points hold energy and these energies can be either restrictive or expansive. For example: The shoulder point. In this system, the restrictive energy is the should(s) and the shouldn’t(s) carrying the weight of the world or burdens.
  • The expansive angel energy is Faith and Freedom it brings. The healing energy of freedom releases the shoulders and lightens your burdens.
  • You will receive an attunement to the Angelic Violet Ray. The attunement is a gentle process where you receive energy and information that empowers you to do this angel healing on yourself and others.
  • How to practice and learn an easy step by step process to connect to the heart of the angel and channel this wonderful energy of compassion.
  • A 10 minute empowerment for your own healing. This 10 min. angel empowerment can easily be done daily to promote peace and loving kindness.

An added bonus to the IET Course:

The best part of the class is that you will be enabled to give and receive a full IET session. The angels remind us that giving is receiving. So just relax and allow the angels do the work.  You get to relax on the table and receive a full session followed by your turn to practice your skills and give a session as well. It is so fun and relaxing and empowering.

Angel medicine is so gentle, so joyful, so loving and it is for everyone.

I have been working in the healing field for 17yrs as a massage therapist and yoga teacher and about 8 yrs ago, I added energy medicine to my practice. First with Reiki and more recently the angel medicine, IET. – IET Master Teacher – Jill Kempner

How To Help A Loved One During Transition

The loving healing energy of the Reiki Symbols has assisted in the healing process of the mind body spirit for years. Reiki Phowa teachings are a beautiful use of the Reiki Principals and Symbols to assist others in the process of transitioning from this physical lifetime. As Reiki Symbols bring peace and serenity to the spirit, a Reiki Phowa session is used to assist someone in the process of their transitioning or someone who has already transitioned. Reiki Phowa will assist in elevating the essence of one’s spirit allowing for the process of transitioning to be an experience which is lovingly peaceful with less resistance.

When you touch someone’s life – it is a privilege.
When you touch someone’s heart – it is a blessing.
When you touch someone’s mind – it is an honor.
When you touch someone’s soul – it is a triumph.
When you touch someone’s spirit – it is a miracle.
Dr Jeff Mullan

In 2015, first of six supermoons comes on January 20

We will have six supermoons in 2015, and the first of the bunch is to fall on January 20, 2015.

What, you say? Supermoon? But the moon isn’t anywhere near full on this date! That’s right. This isn’t a full supermoon. Rather, it’s a new supermoon. In fact, the new moons on January 20, February 18 and March 20 all qualify as supermoons.

Each month, on the day of the new moon, the Earth, moon and sun are aligned, with the moon in between. This line-up creates wide-ranging tides, known as spring tides.

The January 20 extra-close new moon will accentuate the spring tide, giving rise to what’s called a perigean spring tide.  If you live along an ocean coastline, watch for high tides caused by the January, February and March 2015 new moons – or supermoons.

How can you benefit from a New Moon…

First New Moon Meditation tonight January 20th 6:30pm.  Start your New Year with peace in your body, mind and spirit.  Join us for the first New Moon of the New Year. A New Moon is known to be a time to start a new path, way of thinking or routine.

This is a perfect opportunity to give back to yourself. Also, a way to clear the emotions and thoughts that are connected to the past year and open yourself to new beginning. Bring a friend and join us for this wonderful experience to start a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year. Receive insight about our life lessons for our upcoming year, connect with our teachers in spirit to nourish our enlightenment.

benefits of exoliation

How To Help Your Skin This Winter | Guest Post

Professional exfoliation helps activate your cell renewal keeping your skin fresh and young.

One of the skins functions is to naturally exfoliate dead skin cells. We have five layers to our skin, the base layer is very hydrated and plump. As that cell pushes to the surface, it dries out and eventually exfoliates off the skin. This is called the cell renewal process. When we are young, our cell renewal is rapid. As we age, it slows down. Getting facials activates your cell renewal forcing fresh cells to the surface promoting healthy looking skin.

benefits of exoliationThe Benefits of Exfoliating Your Skin:

  • Clean follicles allows for your skin to absorb the wonderful products.
  • Fresher skin cells at the surface allows products to penetrate deeper into your skin maximizing the most out of your skin care system.  By not exfoliating, you risk the product sitting on the surface of your skin instead of being absorbed.
  • Hydrating your skin and re-balancing your acid mantle protects your skin from the harsh weather.
  • Hand and foot treatments will help release tension from the day.
  • Warm towels will relax muscle tensions in your face and décolleté area.
  • Gain insight on stress relieving tips to incorporate into your lifestyle.
  • Changing the way you view yourself by putting yourself first.

Skin has a mixture of water (sweat) and oil leaving your skin PH slightly acidic. This is called your acid mantle. It’s function is to keep bacteria out and moisture in. When your skin is compromised by weather, diet, hot showers or harsh products, your acid mantle can be stripped letting moisture out and bacteria in. Your body makes adjustments throughout the season adapting to environmental stresses; however, too much activity can be difficult for your skin to keep up.

Your face is the most exposed and most visible feature on your body. It is important to maintain the health and look of your skin.  Keep your skin glowing, fresh and happy this winter season and book a facial today.
