Pregnancy Massage 1

Pregnancy Massage with Shekinah

Pregnancy Massage 1Pregnancy brings with it a myriad of physical discomforts and changes that can sometimes be hard to manage with the limited options available to pregnant women.

Massage relieves physical ailments but just as importantly, it helps you to reconnect with self and it supports you to create a stronger bond with your baby.

We can often become distracted by the physicality of pregnancy and therefore overlook or undervalue the mental, emotional and spiritual changes that are also taking place as a woman moves from Maiden to Mother and prepares for the mystery of birth.

“Pregnancy is the perfect opportunity for a woman to re-evaluate life and shift into a flow of heart priorities.”

As you move further into this life changing rite of passage, it is vitally important to take this opportunity to honour yourself and embrace this time of deep personal transformation.

I invite you to become more in tune with your body, your heart, your nature, your femininity and your baby through this beautiful style of bodywork.

With Love

Shekinah Leigh-4

I am so proud of myself, for all that I have achieved!

Shekinah Leigh-4I am a great mum; fair, compassionate, understanding and connected.

Today I feel really proud of myself for all that I do day, after day, after day.  It can be so easy to beat up on myself for not doing more, or having more, or providing more and to feel disheartened, or disappointed at all that we miss out on, sacrifice on, or compromise on. However today I can only see all that we have, all that I have created for us and I can only feel pride and gratitude at my strength, resilience and devotion to myself and my family. 

“In this 2 income society, I raise my child on my own, as a Mum and a Dad, on a single income!”

I do it every day, I wake up every single morning and I do it again…we aren’t just lucky that we live in a stunning part of the world, or that I have a job that I am really good at and which serves others to come back into their beauty and power, or that we have good friends & family, or a stable life, or very few dramas, or no addictions (bedsides chai tea!), I actually made this happen, luck had nothing to do with it!

Our lives are so RICH, we have so much more than many others do, perhaps not financially but where it really matters, in relationships and connection and emotional availability. We miss out on a lot but we also get to do a lot and we are present and connected while we do it. We mindfully engage in life and do our best to find the pleasures in the small things, whether it’s reading a book together, watching a favourite show, sharing about our day, riding to the cafe for a hot chocolate, or treating ourselves to a rare fish n’ chip dinner.

As an introvert I don’t need others to tell me I’m great and let’s face it, most of what I do as a mother is expected and taken for granted anyway, whether I am single, or in a relationship, so I’d probably be waiting a really long time to hear it. However, what I do need is for ME to stop, every now and then and acknowledge myself and just how much I do and have done, for us to be living this fortunate life! It’s been too long since I’ve really celebrated and embodied this side of it all…

Lately I have been a little bogged down in the ‘unfairness’ of it all. Why do I have to do everything, why doesn’t my daughters Dad actually help more, connect more, support more? Why doesn’t the rest of my daughters family contribute more to her up-bringing, why is everyone OK with it all being my responsibility, especially in the face of all that has happened this year. How can they still see it as ALL my job, instead of our job, just because I am female? Or just because I am the responsible one? That line of thinking only leads to resentment and frustration, I know, I’ve been there many times over the last 11 years and you know what? Letting myself stay with this thinking doesn’t actually effect anyone else except me, I am the only one who suffers! And that is the beauty of my recent celebration, it only came through because I chose to stop thinking about what others could be doing to ease my burden and reframed it, to acknowledge just how incredible I am, for doing it all! 

So – Yay for me! Usually I wouldn’t share these kinds of moments, because they seem really ego driven, or arrogant, or like I am blowing my own horn but then I thought, this is the moment, this is where my sharing gives others permission to celebrate their greatness too!

Which leads me to my request, I would love to hear from others, on just how grateful and proud they are of themselves as well! Come on, let’s share the self-love today! It’ll just be between you and me…

How You Can Heal Yourself!

Healer quote bannerDid you know that only you can heal yourself?

It doesn’t matter what supplements you take, or what therapies you experience, if you don’t believe in them, if you don’t feel your own capacity to heal, than nothing can change.

That is why it is so important to follow your own YES, when it comes to well-being and why so many people, once they find a therapist who they resonate with, continue to see that person, throughout their healing journey.

 

“We hold the space, use techniques and unblock pathways, so that YOU can do the real work!”

 

Your therapist does matter, you already know this and some will resonate for you during different parts of your life. They don’t heal you but they may have the tools you need to access your own well-being, they may be the perfect person for you to project your inner healer onto…

This is one of the reasons why I love my home clients so much! I know that I can trust that those I see at the health retreat are meant to see me as a part of their healing journey, however at home I get to form long-lasting relationships with my clients. We get to go deeper, to get clearer and to mindfully approach our treatments with more connection and understanding.

The transformations that I have seen take place, during my years as a therapist, are incredible and each and every time it is YOU that allows it, it is YOU that is ready for more!

So when you feel shifts occurring in your life, when you realise that you have let go of something un-needed, or when you have moved further onto your path with heart, know that even though I am a happy and willing participant, holding space for you in your journey, it is you that attracted me into your life, it is you that knew this therapy would be of benefit and it is YOU that chooses to heal!

Sending you all so much love and gratitude, for being in my life and trusting me to be what you need in the moment…

New Bodywork Treatments Available!

Screenshot 2017-09-04 15.35.20(Combining Sound Healing & Hawaiian Bodywork) 

If you have been following me on Facebook then you will have seen the video for this amazing new treatment.

My gorgeous friend Amanda and I created this “Sacred Soul Journey” after realising that the potency of sound & vibration, combined with the power of Kahuna bodywork, could amplify the healing benefits of our separate bodies of work.

Let me share a little more about this delicious treatment….

The Facilitators:

Amanda sets the space and creates a powerful container with her unique sound healing, while Shekinah intuitively transforms the sounds into bodywork so that the client is receiving vibrational and physical work simultaneously, allowing the frequencies to penetrate more deeply, throughout the treatment. Shekinah also incorporates essential oils to support your personal  journey.

 

This potent trinity creates an experience like no other!

 

Amanda is a gifted, intuitive sound conductor, harnessing the vibrational energy and ancient wisdom of voice and sound. She facilitates therapeutic sound journeys and small workshops for the wellness of her clients and community, incorporating her diploma in counsellFullSizeRender-106ing when needed. Her objective is to provide a safe, nurturing and relaxing environment, coupled with simple teaching practices that people can do to explore their own organic sound journey. She has spent six years researching and learning experientially with voice and sound and was fortunate to attend short courses and studies with The Soul Voice Method and The British Academy of Sound Therapy, however she delivers her own intuitive interpretation and methods of this resurging modality and continues to study, research and learn through self expression and expansion.

Using the modality of frequency medicine, Amanda feels the most connected and creative when she is guiding fellow travellers to discover their own personal greatness and intention, by living their highest truth. Her own healing journey through sound and vocal expression inspired her to create space for others to experience the potent power of sound and explore the possibilities of working with the unlimited creative expression that it offers. She has deep compassion for those who are seeking to discover their inner power and express their authenticity unapologetically.

 

Shekinah facilitates women’s groups & workshops and provides bodywork & online IMG_1468courses for honouring & activating the divine feminine essence in all women. She is a certified Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Childbirth Mentor and Girls Coming of Age Mentor, with many years of experience facilitating women’s circles, women’s rites of passage, sacred ceremony and birth work, Shekinah is an explorer of the feminine and holds a strong and safe space for transformation & healing to take place.

Shekinah’s favourite form of bodywork is Hawaiian Massage (also known as Kahuna / Lomi Lomi), it is an age-old healing modality, designed specifically to connect you to your highest self, to support those profound and subtle shifts, on all levels…as a transformational and healing form of massage, it works on a deeply cellular level, to bring about health and well-being in body, mind and soul.

Essential Oils: Some of the oldest cultures on earth used essential oils for beauty, religious rituals, treatment of illness, embalming and other physical, emotional and Essential Oilspiritual needs. These potent oils send an immediate signal to the Amygdala, which is the brains emotion centre and tests have shown that essential oils reach the heart, liver, and thyroid in 3 seconds when inhaled and they have been found in the bloodstream in 26 seconds after being applied topically. Essential oils have benefits that are up to 100 times more powerful than their dried herb counterparts, because of their concentrated property and we will only use the best quality Therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils with our clients.

Whether you are needing some TLC, emotional release, deep body healing or frequency balancing, this is the treatment for you!

Massage Is Vital To Your Health & Well-being!

Screenshot 2017-08-18 09.24.22I was reminded again today, of how important massage and Bodywork really is.

Too often we think of it as this special luxury we can only have every now and then, however across the world and throughout hundreds of cultures, societies and traditions, massage is not seen as a luxury but a necessity!

The fact is, each of us hold, suppress and lock down energy, situations, experiences and trauma in our body. Regular massage, especially during highly emotional times, can really help you to move through life more efficiently and effectively, without having to hit overwhelm or breakdown first. If anything, massage is designed for those of us who don’t get to frequently indulge in luxuries, we are the ones who need this healing touch the most. 1 hour of massage has been shown to be the equivalent of 7-8 hours of sleep, that alone makes it worthwhile, especially to all of those sleep deprived Mum’s out there!

I have also been having incredible success with my new emotional release treatment. It’s helping to bring balance, focus and clarity back into women’s lives. Massage really is one of the only experiences that you can have, where you can fully receive, allowing your body to completely relax and let go. Women need this, busy women need it even more!

Call me if you would like to know more, or if you are ready to book in for your own personal slice of heaven!

My Inspiration, My Why & My How!

back tattoo sunshine copy w quoteAs a single mother and business owner, I have spent years putting myself last, pushing through and being strong.

Women are such givers and too often we put ourselves last. I understand how important it is for each of us to have safe spaces to relax, release and rejuvenate in.

We are sensitive, intuitive and innately connected to our emotions, we take on so much and I believe it is important for us to have opportunities to connect back into our own softness, beauty, compassion, love and vulnerability. This is when we are most in our divine naturalness and it makes it so much easier for us to relate from the heart and hold space, for our friends and family, in beauty. It is my passion to honour and support women to know and trust themselves from the inside out.

The treatments that I provide blend nurturing bodywork, powerful essential oils and insightful moon astrology.

  1. Massage; it is an incredible healing modality that helps the body and mind release pent up tensions and traumas, eases physical aches & pains, and provides deep relaxation.
  2. Essential oils; they are the most potent part of the plant. They have benefits that are up to 100 times more powerful than their dried herb counterparts because of their concentrated property and have been used for thousands of years with enormous success! I use only the best quality essential oils in my treatments.
  3. Goddess Moon Astrology; these readings help to bring into awareness, important energies that can be embraced, shifted or released.

 

This powerful blend of massage, essential oils and moon readings, really takes my treatments to a deeper level, creating more opportunities for change and transformation!

 

There are various ways that I structure my treatment/s;

  • Goddess Moon Astrology – Based on your birthday, we can discover what energies are at work in your life right now and choose essential oils and affirmations, that support you in the moment.
  • Ultimate Body Harmony – Designed to support healthy immunity, perfect for the changing seasons, or if you have been feeling run down.
  • Sacred Deep Release – Created to support deep emotional release, for well-being and transformation.
  • Pregnancy Massage – To ease aches & pains, and establish a deeper bond, between Mother and Baby.
  • Post Natal Massage – Supporting mothers to integrate and heal, from their Birthing Journey.
  • Goddess Moon Massage – Combining Moon Astrology with Kahuna Massage, for a powerful treatment, designed to meet your immediate needs.

My work has grown in depth and breadth over the last 12 years and I am proud to be offering such a diverse and effective range of treatments, to support women to come back to themselves, more easily and beautifully.

If you would like to experience more of your beautiful self, give me a call to book in your delicious treatment of choice, right now!

Much Love

Does This Scare You, Or Make You Uncomfortable?

If you are anything like me, when you read, or see, or hear the word MLM, you immediately switch off or lose interest. The thought of them may give you that icky, someone’s trying to sell me something, can I even trust my friend anymore, feelings…I know, I get it, I have been a reluctant convert and certainly not to all MLM’s, as they aren’t all coming from a place of integrity. It is always so important to do your homework, to research the company, to make sure that you love and believe in the product and that you pay attention to the kind of people who have come before you, in the same business. Chances are, if the business is full of people you admire and like, then it’s probably a good match for you!

I have learned something new recently, something really powerful about the nature of multi level marketing, or network marketing. I had already seen the Rise of The Entrepreneur movie  and I learned that in our day, age and society, MLM’s are actually a really sustainable way forward but that didn’t quite do it for me. This is what did it…

“When you buy from a friend, family member, or community member who runs a local business, whether it is a part of an MLM or not, you are directly supporting them and their family. You are putting food on the table, petrol in the car and clothes on their backs.”

It’s really about supporting at the local level.

If you choose to join a business through MLM, you can be joining a community of local people who are committed to supporting and growing each other towards more health and success. To me that’s what life is all about; connecting, supporting and growing, with integrity and authenticity. I really desire to support my local community by purchasing local whenever I can, so that I can support Mum’s and Dad’s to provide for their families, just like I am. When we are in business together, we hold each other accountable, we create sustainability, and we make the change we want to see in the world. THIS is what finally convinced me that some MLM’s really are the way forward in business…

Also, for me, I get to express myself, I get freedom, I get flexibility, I get to connect with people I want to. My clients, customers and team members are all people I like and WANT to spend time with and for me it’s authentic, because I would never be offering, or using a product, that I didn’t have 100% faith in and the people who know me, know that about me. This isn’t about making money, no matter what; this is about sharing what works, with people I care about, in ways that feel natural to me.

What are your thoughts on MLM’s?
