Earlier this year I started using a new brand of skin care products by Phos Wellness . The 'Face Elixir Lipid' for combination skin has become my daily go to for a facial oil. It smells amazing and melts into the skin easily. My normally combination skin has transformed since starting to using these products. After moving from the humid climate of Bermuda to the dry European climate and central heating my skin was not happy. But now the dryness has resolved and is feeling less sensitive and inflamed. I have also started using the skin products with my Facial Acupuncture clients with great results. I use the Face Elixir Lipid for combination skin with the Bio Recovery Gel for my skin and the Eye Ozone around my eyes. Here is a bit more info about the products below.Read More
I thought it would be a great idea to start sharing some of my client stories on my blog. It's often a great way to really understand how beneficial treatments are to so some clients' lives.

She also wanted to write me a testimonial for my website as she would love to encourage others to give treatments such as acupuncture a try and hopefully experience some amazing results themselves.Read More
There are many anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) on the market, available as 'over the counter' (OTC), or via a medical prescription.

As a Physiotherapist and Health Coach, a large portion of my are already taking either painkillers or NSAIDS before they walk through my door, either OTC or prescription. I also have a significant number of clients who say to me 'I can't take anti-inflammatories because they upset my stomach' or 'I don't take any medications, they are not good for you'. But its my next question that often baffles my clients, 'So what natural anti-inflammatories have you tried or are taking?'I just get blank stares and awkward silences. I'm always surprised at the number of people that seem proud of themselves for deciding to not take conventional medication, but have absolutely no idea what foods or natural products could help them instead.Read More
So after moving from the beautiful island of Bermuda back to Europe, my skin has decided to dissaprove. It is dry! For the past six years I have been used to such a humid climate and now I'm having to adapt to central heating and the cold outdoors again. So here is my plan of attack, I decided to make my own skin scrub!
