    Welcome. WISDOM XXXXX

    Wellbeing

    Wellness can be defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, going beyond mere freedom of disease. It emphasises the proactive maintenance and improvement of well-being. When we look after our wellbeing we feel good about ourselves, we live our lives fully and completely, we become positive about life and this reflects on our friends and family.

    Wellness is characterised by a consistent, clear, high level of energy, emotional balance, a sharp mind, a desire to maintain physical fitness and a direct awareness of what suits our bodies, what enhances our health, and what our needs are in any given moment. As a result the ageing process is slowed down and we can live a long and healthy life.

    Wellness can be defined as an experience or an exploration of what makes you feel good.

    Without proper fuel our bodies will not have the energy to perform at their best. Without exercise our bodies become weaker and less active. The journey through yoga encompasses so much more than the ‘asanas’ or the poses. Yoga enables us to handle and explore our attitudes towards the world, ourselves, our concentration and helps us to meditate. It helps us to understand why we resist and teaches us how to overcome our weaknesses.

    The formula to wellness is a three step process

  • Following a healthy balanced diet
  • Participate in at least 20 minutes of exercise a day
  • Add 5 minutes of meditation and 10 minutes of yoga everyday



  • History of Reflexology

    Egyptian hieroglyphics depict the ancient beginnings of reflexology approximately 4000 years ago (Kunz & Kunz, 1995). There is evidence that some forms of reflexology were used by the ancient Chinese and early American Indian tribes (Bolting, 1997). Medical practices developed based on the notion that a stimulus applied to the body produces a response in another area of the body.



    Welcome. reflexology

    Reflexology

    Reflexology therapy aims to stimulate the body's innate self-healing systems and meridians, thereby reducing anxiety & creating an optimal homeostatic condition to increase circulation, promote healing & improve wellbeing. Thus encouraging the body to use its intrinsic ability to heal itself and restore a natural balance, a holistic approach that is becoming widely recognised & respected in modern medical practice.

    Hippocampus

    The hippocampus is that part of your brain which is responsible for long-term memory and spatial navigation. It is located in the temporal lobe, behind your ear. You have two hippocampi, one on each side of the brain.

    The hippocampus is so important that when it is damaged, you may be unable to form new long-term episodic memories although you may still be able to learn new procedural memories or motor sequences of everyday tasks. Memory is not totally lost as you may still be able to remember events stored prior to hippocampus damage.



    Welcome. Hippo Brain

    Alzheimer's Disease and Reflexology Hippocampus

    Vladimir Bekhterev was best known for noting the role of the hippocampus in memory, his study of reflexes, and Bekhterev Disease (Ankylosing spondylitis). Moreover, he is known for his competition with Ivan Pavlov regarding the study of conditioned reflexes..

    Alzheimer's disease (and other forms of dementia), the hippocampus is one of the first regions of the brain to suffer damage; short-term memory loss and disorientation are included among the early symptoms. Damage to the hippocampus can also result from oxygen starvation (hypoxia), encephalitis, or medial temporal lobe epilepsy. People with extensive, bilateral hippocampal damage may experience anterograde amnesia (the inability to form and retain new memories).

    The term reflexology was coined by Vladimir Bekhterev 1917 a Russian neurologist and the father of objective psychology.

    Cancer Care Reflexology



    Reflexology may be a good choice for patients who don’t want to be touched, or who can’t be touched or moved during treatment. Unlike massage, it involves only the feet, with no re-positioning or undressing required.




    Reflexology is one of the most popular types of complementary therapy in the UK among people with cancer.

  • Welcome. Blessed grateful

    Be Grateful. Even for a Day You’d Rather Forget

    “There are billions of people, right now, all around the world, who – if they could swap places with you for just one day – would be living a life so far beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Your day-to-day life is someone else’s wildest dreams come true and much, much more.”
    Don’t Just Think it….FEEL it
    Now rather than just read that sentence, I want you to really feel it; think about those people and imagine they DO have your life for a day – no matter how dismal you think your life is. Imagine how amazed and grateful they would feel each moment for all the things you experience on a daily basis – a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in, food and drinks, clean water, a safe environment.
