Ancient Tibetan Reflexology – VITA FLEX

Ancient Tibetan Reflexology – VITA FLEX

I am so excited to add this powerful modality to my list of skillsets. I will be offering it at Aspire Wellbeing in Torquay, at my retreats, workshops, expos etc.
Vita Flex technique was developed by the Tibetans thousands of years before acupuncture. Its literally meaning is “vitality through the reflexes”.
Vita Flex was brought to the US in the 1920s by Stanley Burroughs.

Slight pressure that is applied to the body creates an electric charge that is therapeutic to the body. This is known as piezoelectric. The electrical energy that is produced during the technique transfers to the nerve pathways. Once the energy finds a gap in the circuit, it repairs the break in the pathway that is creating the imbalance in the body.

If there is a short in the wire along an electrical circuit that is controlling a light, the light would not function. When the short is repaired, the circuit would “reset” and the function would be restored!

The pressure comes from the fingers. A rolling motion of the finger pads, tips and nails, creates the stimulation similar to how an electric switch or circuit works. The technique is applied to the various reflex points of the body.

It is a very effective method and it has a synergistic effect when combined with therapeutic grade essential oils.

We know that essential oils also contain electromagnetic properties. Therefore, using essential oils with vita flex enhances the process that much more and drives the oils into the corresponding reflex points. That is why it is combined with the Raindrop Technique as well. (You can also book in for the amazing Raindrop Technique here at Aspire Wellbeing)

There are numerous benefits of the Vita Flex Technique. Here are just a few:

  • Bring back balance to the energy pathways in a non-invasive manner.
  • Work on supporting our healthy body systems
  • Reduce stress and tension in the body.
  • And many more!

Are there any Side Effects?

Because some of the Vita Flex maneuvers can encourage detoxification of the body, someone may experience some mild side effects. The best advice is to drink plenty of water before and after a session.

I am interested in booking a session!

Stress – how do you react to it?

Stress – how do you react to it?

Stress….we all experience it at time.
Do you know the signs of stress?

Have you had times when you feel very stressed? I’m pretty sure you have. We all go through stressful times in our lives.

Life has its ups and downs and we just have to find ways of how to deal with them. It can be “interesting” to watch our bodies physical effects on “difficult or stressful” days. Do you think about what your thoughts are at the time and your feelings?

It can sometimes be helpful to “check” your body awareness.

Here is what you can do:

1. Be aware of the times when you are stressed or overwhelmed; how does it make you feel? What happens in your body when you feel this way?

2. Then observe your anxiety reactions; where do you start to hold the tension, what physical effect has it?

3. Watch your own reactions; what do you do with the feelings that occurred in your body when the stressful or overwhelmed event occurred?

4. If your “stressful” event made you recall a past unpleasant event – how did your body react and how did this make you feel?

5. Think about a time when you where hurt, either physically, mentally or emotionally; take notice in what body parts that feels tight and where you have stored that tightness.

By observing yourself and your reaction, and your body – you will notice how your physical and emotional sides are connected; hence you will become more BODY AWARE.

So if you are feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed, take some time to take a deep slow breath and observe the tension leaving your body.

An evening of Love, Peace and Harmony

An evening of Love, Peace and Harmony

Aspire hosted a Free workshop last night – the 5th of February – A Universal Peace Solution.

I first met Nick, who presented the workshop, just a week before as he dropped in to Aspire Wellbeing. My intuition said straight away that I wanted to support him in his passion for spreading global peace and sharing the solution to it. His presentation goes through the science behind meditation – that when a large group of people unite, and create, coherent, heart based emotions, we can intentionally influence the field that sustain all life on the planet.

The presentation empower anyone who feels helpless in the world and presents evidence that shows we each possess the internal technology to create lasting change.

A few days before the event I took a chance to have a chat with Nick to get to know him a little better through doing a facebook live. See below.

Here is also a couple of photos from the night:

Do you keep a journal?

Do you keep a journal?

I love journalling and I also find it a beneficial thing for all my clients. Do you journal?

Keeping a daily journal has many positive benefits. Daily Journaling can help with personal growth and development. By regularly recording your thoughts you will gain insight into your behaviors and moods.

There is a lot of power in the written word but occasionally words are hard to find. You can then draw or make a collage that represents how you feel.

Here are some Journaling tips to get you started

1. Write about where you are in your life at this moment. Describe your living situation, your work, and your relationships. Are you right where you want to be?

2. For five to ten minutes just start writing in a “stream of consciousness” Don’t edit your thoughts or feelings and don’t correct your grammar. Don’t censor your thoughts.

3. Write down what you are grateful for (at least 3 things every day). This could also contain a daily list of things you appreciate. It can also contain quotes.

5. Take pictures of yourself and things you love. You can take pictures, draw colors or shapes or collage images. Learn to love and accept yourself just the way you are today.

6. Write down things about the weather and the nature around you and what you appreciate about it.

7. Write down what things you are doing today that is going to have a positive impact on your Wellbeing. What exercise you have done, meditation, healthy eating etc.

7. Maintain a log of successes. Write down your daily successes. They don’t have to be huge once. As you pay attention to your successes, small or big, your list of successes will grow and inspire you.

8. Write down your current favorite songs. Write down why you like them and what moods they trigger and how they make you feel.

9. If there’s something you are struggling with or an event that’s disturbing you, write about it in the third person. This will give you distance and provide a new perspective. Write down what you learned about yourself.

10. Develop your intuition. Write down questions or concerns then take a deep breath and listen for a response from your Higher Self. Let yourself write automatically. If you don’t get an answer right away, look for signs during the day.

The art of Doing Nothing

The art of Doing Nothing

Today was meant to be a day of complete rest at home for me which I have not had for a long time. Then I discovered someone had booked an appointment online before I had blocked it out.
So my day all of a sudden did not become a day of doing nothing. But, after I had seen the client, I went home with the intention of resting and “doing nothing” but then found myself catching up on washing, cleaning, mowing the lawn, packing up stuff, catching up on things and so on. As I was sitting down for a moment, I reflected on what I had done. It was definitely not a day of doing nothing 🙂 🙂 Doing Nothing is an art form and I had clearly not mastered this art form today.
Like anything it takes practise. 🙂
Sure, we all know how to do nothing. We all know how to lay around and waste time. But many of us are too busy to do it much, and when we do it, our minds are often on other things. We cannot relax and enjoy the nothingness. Well, that was exactly my experience today.
When was the last time you practised the art of doing nothing? Doing nothing can be a waste of time, or it can be an art form. So, how can we become mastered of this art so we can improve our life, destress and make ourselves more productive when we actually do work. Well, here are my suggestions as I have practised this art form in the past and it worked wonders. Doing nothing renewed my energy and made me so much more inspired and productive as I started work again.
First of all turn off all distractions — TV, computer, phones etc.. Doing nothing is hard when our communications gadgets are calling at us to do something.
Start small – 5 – 10 minutes at the start only is usually enough. Find a time and place where there are not many distractions, not much noise, not a lot of people to bother you.
Close your eyes, and do nothing!! Yes,nothing! Don’t even bother listening to your inner voice telling you, you should be doing something. just focus on your breath.
After 5-10 minutes of doing – nothing, you can stop & do something. Do this every day, or as much as possible, because it is not possible to become a master without practice.
I sometimes practise doing nothing whilst having a bath. this is wonderful! All you do it lying there in the comfortably warm water, perhaps with oils and bath salt.
There are many ways and places to practise this art form at.
The Art of Doing Nothing cannot be mastered overnight. It will take hours and hours of practice, of hard work (doing nothing isn’t easy!). But you will enjoy every minute of it! Try it today.
Pure wellness by doing nothing,
Karin Hagberg xx
