Relax Kids Pants of Peace

By – Rom @ Cariad Therapies Oct 2014 Nova News

Isn’t that a lovely concept, that if you had a pair of magic pants, when you put them on you were calm and ready & able to get on with life, whether a child or an adult! This is what I’ve been working on, pulling on all my training and skills and practice of being a Mum, to bring together packages and classes to support parents and children.

Pants of Peace is a book by the founder of Relax Kids and is full of visualisations which help children to relax, feel less anxiety, less anger and greater self-esteem. I am a Relax Kids coach and run classes in Newport. Classes will be starting at the Children’s Centre in November for under 5s. A 30 minute Relax Kids session includes singing, dance & movement, relaxation games, stretches, gentle parent/child massage, positive talk and ending in cuddle time with a story visualisation and cosy blanket!

Classes can help children hyperactivity, anxiety, sleep problems, tantrums.

To put your name down for the class please contact me and please follow my Fb page “Relax Kids in Newport” for more details AND FREE DOWNLOADS! I hope to run classes for school age children shortly.

Parents, please have a look at www.spaceforcalm.co.uk, I have a range of services for the family! From flower essence, relaxing therapies, SleepTalk™ self-esteem program for children.

And yes, if I forget to put my pants of peace on, I do have to get changed! Have you got your pants of peace on?! Rom x

Indian Head Massage for Migraine relief?

Indian Head Massage for Migraine relief?

One of my most popular therapies is Indian Head Massage. It is a gentle massage with its history based in India, where families would (and do) give each other regular head/shoulder massages. It is effective to de-stress the whole body, as the massage covers the shoulders, neck, upper arms, face and scalp. It can be carried out over clothes, but most clients prefer the massage oil to be used.

Many of my clients find that regular Indian Head Massages can reduce the presence and reoccurrences of migraines significantly.

Indian Head Massage has the physical benefits of improving blood flow to the neck and head, improving lymphatic drainage & thus removal of toxins from the head, relieves muscular tension and relieve physical and emotional stress. All brilliant to aid headaches and migraines. As well as the increase blood supply acting as a boost to promote healthy hair growth too!

Cleansing of Crystals, first steps before jumping in!

As this is my first blog it feels natural to start at the beginning and share my thoughts on when first using crystals.

I’ve just received some beautiful quartz points for my crystal therapy and some amazing “healer’s gold” crystal tumblestones (more next time!), so as much as I want to get stuck into them I have to cleanse them first!

Cleansing removes past energies that they may have picked up from mining, processing, travel, storage, wholesale & retail, locations and other potential “owners” who held them! Once cleansed you are able to energise them, get to know them and program them with your own positive thoughts and affirmations.

My favourite method is to hold in my hands and then run cold tap water over them for a few minutes until I feel they are cleansed (or dowse with a crystal pendulum). A gentle dab with a towel and then I leave them in the sunlight on a windowsill or overnight in moonlight (a full moon is awesome!). As much as I want to get into their energies it is important for them to have this rest time! I will then (after centreing myself) hold them individually and meditate on them, looking at their shape, texture and imagine being inside them and if they have a messages. This really starts a bond with the crystal and will make choosing them and working with them via instinct much stronger. I will then hold and “program” them individually or in the case of my quartz crystals as a group. Usually the intention initially is something simple such as “to amplify and heal for the highest appropriate level of the client”. Then I can try working with them to really get a feel for their energy! At last!!|

Alternatives method include lying them in salt for a few hours (be sure to throw the salt away though afterwards!), smudge with sage or similar, bury them in the ground (after wrapping in fabric) & remembering where they have been buried!. Some crystals will melt in water (selenite for example) so alternatives are also needed!

If I’m working with them I cleanse between clients using a crystal spray and then use reiki to cleanse and reenergise. I also have a generator crystal I use to leave them “on-charge” between treatments.

I hope I’ve given you a taster of information on crystal cleansing, I must end now as my new crystals are calling for me! Can you hear them?

Insomnia for Adults and children alike!

Ironically I’ve been awake thinking about this blog for the last few hours, so have had to get up to write it! But then that is part of insomnia, when something goes around in your mind and you are unable to switch it off to go to sleep. Insomnia can be caused by anxiety, grief, medical reasons and can result in debilitating tiredness. With a lack of sleep, for me, comes an inability to deal with the day-to-day issues in a calm and positive way. I need my sleep!
Solutions I can offer to help with this much needed area of sleep, all aid relaxation.
Reflexology is known for unblocking and rebalancing the energy pathways of the body. The feet and hands are for a map of the body and internal systems, through a reflexology treatment the body can reduce stress, aid relaxation, strengthen the immune system and facilitate homeostasis (balance) in the body).

By working on the endocrine system (the hormone system), it can be stimulated to bring the hormones into balance, stimulating the “sleep hormone” of melatonin, a high level of melatonin will result in a greater feeling of sleepiness . There are other key areas for relaxation including the digestive system, to ensure troublesome digestive ailments do not interfere with sleep and relaxation points.

As an all over body and system massage Reflexology can pick up areas of issue and can bring the body back into balance as well as be a very relaxing treatment and relaxation is of course the key to insomnia!

Other useful therapies are flower essence remedies which help bring balance to your state of mind and emotions, supporting the relief of anxieties and making you more able to cope with them. Crystals can also work on the body’s energy fields and help clear energy blockages. Amethyst under a pillow can also help with nightmares.
Children often find it very difficult to switch off and their brains keep working on thoughts and actions that have happened earlier in the day. The use of a Relax Kids CD can really help to give them something to focus their thoughts on, can stop the reruns and give them the space for the body to relax and go to sleep. CDs can be bought from me or direct from www.relaxkids.com.

It may also be the case that children are also suffering from anxiety, or fear which is preventing them from going to sleep, or to wake in the night. SleepTalk™ is a self-esteem program for children, which follows a set script which parents say to their children as they sleep. It can help with a multitude of childhood behavioural issues including sleeping at night. SleepTalk™ is all about developing the child’s emotional resilience, the mind’s firewall. By using SleepTalk™ over an 8 week period many issues can be reduced or resolved completely

Please talk to me about your, or your child’s insomnia, so we can work a plan of action that will mean you all have the night’s sleep you need, making a better morning!
