While I was in massage school, I reflected back on what had brought me to that point in my life and how was I going to use my newly aquired skills.
Now, as a Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist, I want to create something that would encompass more than basic massage. I want a place where people can come and feel cared for and cared about without judgement. That's when NURTURED was concieved, bringing various modalities to facilitate ways to "Care For Your Body Naturally", placing more emphasis on self care.
I then proceded to became certified in pediactric massage through Liddle Kidz Foundation, where I learned that children need massage too! They need to feel safe and empowered concerning their care. My life has been blessed by these little people!
My next stop was the evolving world of essential oils. How would I use these in my practice? There are many essential oil companies and I wanted to learn everything I could about them and on which brand I should place my focus. I wanted to know about the chemistry and the emotional aspects of aroma therapy. This brought me to Young Living Essential oils and their Seed to Seal guarantee. I was impressed, but I wanted more.
In my search for courses and more education regarding essential oils, I found CARE (The Center For Aromatherapy Research and Education), which only uses Young Living Essential Oils in their teachings. I was excited as I was having difficulty deciding on which essential oil brand to use. I believe education is key in understanding how our bodies naturally function and how our cellular vitality is enhanced through bodywork, essential oils, and meditation.
In Hawaii there is this saying:
He po'i na kai uli, kai ko'o, 'a' ohe hina puko'a
"Though the sea be deep and rough, the coral rock remain standing"
I love this saying! We all feel sometimes, that life is consuming us with its challenges, and we are simply searching for a place to find some balance and a sence of peace. NURTURED is that place!
Life experiences build us. The ocean soothes us. And body work sustains us.
