The Most Woo Woo Thing I Do...

Welcome all new Ewesletter subscribers and hello to all readers. Please enjoy this monthly newsletter and thank you for subscribing and for sharing this Ewesletter with your friends. As a subscriber, you are among the first to hear about what's going on at Homespunspa. ~ Maria

Something tells me, originally, the expression "woo-woo" came from the sounds people make when they're telling ghost stories and we got that sound in our culture from a musical instrument called a Theramin (think theme from "Star Trek"). Nowadays, people use the term to talk about things that seem magical or unexplainable in nature.

The most "woo woo" thing I do as part of my mobile spa services is Energy Healing. It may seem "woo woo" to most people but it's actually not as mystical as you might think. There are lots of documented cases of unexplained healing, including spontaneous remission, out there. For healing to occur, these two things need to be added to the mix: 1) the patient needs to feel genuine care from another person and 2) the patient needs to shift from having the stress response to the relaxation response.

I talk a lot more about the relaxation response in my ebook, Creating Wellness, and if you haven't read it yet, I can send you a free copy.

So when I'm giving a energy healing to someone, (I don't guarantee any results, especially a spontaneous remission and I don't claim that I can work miracles), I try to convey that I care and help people feel more relaxed. People often tell me that they can feel the warmth in my hands.

Anyway, now that I'm operating out of my treatment room on Cook Street twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays, I'm offering a special energy healing massage where I use specific essential oils and crystal stones along with a relaxing massage to balance chakras and it's awesome!

Please let me know if you're interested in booking an appointment with me soon.

The Chakra Balancing Essential Oils and Crystals I Use

I first learned about chakras at the Aveda Institute while I was studying esthetics and then later, I gained more knowledge about chakras when I was being certified as a Higher Touch Energy Healer in 2012.

Chakra (Energy Centre): Chakra is the Hindu word for "wheel of energy." Each person has seven main chakras including the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown, and they are thought to be found along the mid-line of the body, in line with the spinal column. Each chakra has a specific domain of influence like basic survival, communication or connection with God and if they are kept clear (through meditation for example), the energy will flow more freely and the body will be in harmony. If the energy centres are blocked, however, the person will experience low energy and frustration with certain parts of their life and may eventually develop a disease.

Here are the essential oils and crystal stones I use to help open and clear the chakras during my energy healing massage. If you're particularly drawn to any of these, that will give you some clues about your current reality.

Root Chakra: Cinnamon/Clove essential oil and Red Jasper crystal

Sacral Chakra: Tangerine essential oil and Sunstone crystal

Solar Plexus Chakra: Ylang Ylang essential oil and Citrine crystal

Heart Chakra: Rose absolute and Green Aventurine crystal

Throat Chakra: Blue Oil (with chamomile and peppermint) and Blue Quartz crystal

Third Eye Chakra: Sandalwood essential oil and Lapis Lazuli crystal

Crown Chakra: Lavender essential oil and Amythyst crystal

I hope you get a chance to try my energy healing/chakra balancing massage soon and if you have any questions, please call or email me.

Have a good October!

About Homespunspa

The concept of Homespunspa was sprung from a sleep-over in 1999 after I invited some friends to a slumber party that turned into a spa party.

We each created our own home spa treatments for hair, nails, face and body using natural ingredients like avocados, lemons and essential oils.

That night, my love of spas was awakened and as my head hit the pillow, the word, "Homespunspa" was born.

Homespunspa Enterprises was established in 2001 and the sheep logo was commissioned later that year. In 2002, I launched and the site has been live on the Internet without interruption all of these years.

In 2006, I self-published a book of home spa recipes entitled, How to Throw a Home Spa Pajama Party the Homespunspa Way.

In 2009, I added a blog to the Homespunspa website. In 2010, I graduated from the Aveda Institute with a diploma in Esthetics. In 2011, I added a mobile spa department to Homespunspa. In 2015, I graduated from the Rayner Institute and am now offering life coaching from the treatment room on Cook Street, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Homespunspa's e-newsletter, Ewesletter, is published each month on or after the 16th day.

Thanks for reading the Homespunspa Ewesletter. I hope to see you in person soon.
