The healing art of reiki

Written by Maggie Nolan

 

The healing art of Reiki..

I treated a lovely client today with a combination of Reiki and massage therapy.

Her body was in need of nurture, healing, comfort and time for her to let go...

Our physical bodies hold within them the story of our emotional worlds..

Locked in our structure and carried in the way we hold ourselves, protected by our fear to let go..

And then finally we free ourselves of the hold of our stories, to discover a new way to view the world..

Becoming a massage therapist

Written by Maggie Nolan

It all started in 1994!

As a teenager, I always enjoyed giving my mum a massage, it was our time together, time I could spend with her uninterpreted.
She would sit on the lounge room floor while watching T.V. and I would massage her achy shoulders.
She was the one who encouraged me to study massage therapy, and when I look back now, it always brings a smile to my face.

I have always been a giving person, and love to support and help others. I felt that massage therapy could be my way to express who I am and support others. So when I was 18, I embarked on my journey as a massage therapist.

how does rock tape work

Written by Maggie Nolan

How Does RockTape Work?

When applied correctly, RockTape’s unique elasticity causes the skin to form convolutions and wrinkle. This decompresses the tissue immediately below the skin.  It is believed that this has three main effects:

  • Fluid effect- improving blood and lymphatic flow in the taped area
  • Mechanical effect- improving the slide and glide between tissue layers
  • Neurological effect- altering the perception of pain and improving body awareness.

Key Benefits Of Using RockTape

  • Assists to decrease pain
  • Assists to reduce swelling and bruising
  • Provides functional support while allowing full range of movement
  • Hypoallergenic – no zinc oxide or latex
  • Water resistant – can be worn for up to 5 days

What is Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum

Written by Maggie Nolan

The Corpus callosum is the main network of nerve fibers that connects our left and right brain hemispheres.

My son Charlie was born without his corpus callosum, and I am an active advocate for spreading awareness about this rare condition.

When we found out at my 20 week scan, I was given advice not to get to investigative and research it on the internet, as it is a rare condition with a large spectrum that isn’t completely understood. However, I needed to satisfy my curiosity and so I looked it up in my Anatomy/ Physiology books that I had from my study as a remedial massage therapist.
We were reassured that our baby was at the lower end of the spectrum and we felt positive, always having a deep knowing that our strong little boy would be ok.
