#HealthGoals: Discover your healthiest body

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
It really is true when they say “your body is a temple”. If your body isn’t healthy you often see it impacting other areas of your life.
If you’re reading this blog and you have already had a treatment with Tania Dobbie, Massage Therapist and Master Reiki Practitioner, you have already experience her life changing and body transforming techniques.
What patients say about our Tania:
“I have been seeing a chiropractor to treat a shoulder injury for years, after just two treatments with Tania I feel like a new person”.
“My stomach had been feeling off for about a year. I was seeing a naturopath and a nutritionist to try and fix it but I just didn’t feel like anything was changing. Tania suggested a stomach massage and some reiki. Straight after my session Tania told me to go see my GP as she thought I had an infection, she was right!”.
“I don’t usually get along with my sister in law but I had to have dinner with her and her husband straight after my massage. Believe it or not, I actually had a civil conversation with her! I don’t know what she did to me but it was amazing.”.
“You have to let Tania massage the inside of your mouth! I’ve suffered from terrible migraines for years but when she massages to inside of my mouth I feel the pain and grogginess lift. Let her massage the inside of your mouth, seriously!”.
You can read more about Tania’s reiki technique and the history here
When you visit Tania, she too, like our dermal therapists will ask a few questions to gain a better understanding of what your needs are and the current state of your body. Read about the dermal process here
Some of the questions Tania will ask you:
“Do you usually receive massage. How often. What type of massage?”
“Is there anywhere you would like me to focus on today?” I ask them to show me exactly where.
“Is the pain recent or is this something that is ongoing?”
“Are you left or right handed?”
“What do you do for work?”
“Have you been in any car accidents, had any sporting injuries or big falls?”
“Do you tend to be warm or cold?”
Tania continues “I then have them stand up and stand in their normal position to see how their body looks. This shows me if there are any postural imbalances and determines what my massage will entail. I explain what I observed to the guest and my proposed treatment.”
Tania will also share vital, at home management techniques to ensure your body is headed in the right direction. These will include:
– Self Massage techniques
– Special herbs or elixirs to help cleanse and balance your insides
– IV treatments to boost vitamins and minerals that you may be lacking, you can find out more about this here
– Additional in clinic treatments to target key problem areas

Self love: What they should be teaching you at school

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Self love: What they should be teaching you at school

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

When Justin Bieber sang “You should go and love yourself” he was on to a very good thing. Self love is one of the most undervalued health tools (alongside sleep and rest in my eyes, read about our favourite sleepy tea here and because it is such a foreign concept, when you bring it up as a health topic, people tend to shy away from it.

Why?

Because when you talk about ‘loving yourself’ a natural response is to assume that this is a selfish or arrogant way to live. We live in a world where it is expected to put everyone else’s needs before yourself. Any wonder most of us relate to being a people pleaser? Going out of your way to do things for other people, make other people feel comfortable and loved and welcome, ignoring the little niggle within us crying out for our OWN love and support?

It is time to flip this stigma on its head once and for all. Self love is the most valuable gift you can give yourself, and here is why…

 

You will be able to give MORE

Picture self love like a cup that needs to be filled. The more you fill your cup with, the more full of water it becomes, even until it is overflowing. If you have an overflowing cup, then there is plenty of water to give to others, right?

Self love acts in this exact way. You cannot pour from an empty cup. The more full, or overflowing, your self love cup, the more love and energy you will naturally be able to give other people. The emptier your cup, the more drained your energy and ability to give 100% your all to others. In fact, if you are running on empty and not ‘topping up’ your self love cup, then you run the very real risk of fatigue and burnout. Self love is the remedy for this. You will be a better partner, parent and friend as a result of it.

 

Your energy will thrive

Self love assumes that you put your energy first – meaning listening to your body and resting when needed, without the guilt factor. We are not meant to operate at a go-go-go level each and every day, but because this is such a common way of living, we consider it normal.

It isn’t.

When you are coming at your energy from a place of self love, you respect your body’s need for rest and recharge – every single day. Spending your Sundays on the couch, taking nana naps and watching Netflix can actually be BENEFICIAL to your health if it is what your tired body is crying out for. Respect your body enough to give it rest – even 5 minutes – every single day. And be sure to prioritise your sleep – 7-9 hours is paramount for optimal wellbeing.

 

Your confidence will soar

When you are bursting with self love, you wake up feeling genuinely GOOD about yourself – regardless of what you look like, and regardless of what the scales say. That’s the dream, right?

An easy way to develop great self love and self confidence practices is to start an affirmation practice. Repeat to yourself every single day an affirmation about yourself that you wish to manifest: perhaps it is “I am healthy and glowing with happiness” or “My body is strong and toned”. Continue repeating this in your head throughout the day – remember, what you think, you become.

 

You will be kinder and gentler

When you practice self love, your patience soars. We are our own harshest critics and it is extremely difficult to silence that ego-fuelled voice in our own heads, telling us we are not good enough. The more you practice silencing this voice in yourself, the gentler you will be with other people – as you recognise we are ALL fighting our own inner battles. You will naturally become a kinder and more patient person, with others and most importantly, with yourself.

  

You will inspire others

When you are living your life unashamedly from a place of love, you inspire others to do the same. You will emit a glow of happiness and health that is entirely because of how you see yourself. You will choose to eat foods that make you feel good, you will move your body because you respect yourself enough to exercise, and you will only say yes to doing the things that make you genuinely happy. Leading by example is a wonderful way to live your life, as you leave a wave of inspiration behind you for others to mirror.

 

Your health will be at its best

Finally, self love is paramount if you want to ditch diets and fad exercise regimes once and for all. If you are bursting with love for yourself every day – the decisions you make for your health will be 100% aligned to love. Gone will be the binges, flogging your body at the gym without a break, saying yes to please others and sticking it out at the job you hate. Your sleep will improve, your skin will glow and your body will be healthy and strong.

Vision: top tips for setting and achieving goals

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Vision: top tips for setting and achieving goals

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
A new year often signifies the perfect opportunity to set your goals for the year ahead.
Check out our New Year “Twenty SevenQueen” Competition here.
Whether a regular ‘goal-setter’ or not, there is real merit in setting goals leading to a higher quality life – greater motivation, feelings of positivity and success and an all-round inspiring lifestyle as you tick wonderful goals off your 2017 to-do list.
There can be conflicting advice when it comes to goal setting. Some people keep their goals to themselves, not telling anyone and quietly working away in the background. Others shout their goals from the rooftops, claiming the more people they tell, the more accountable they will feel when working at achieving their goals.
I am going to let you in on a little secret – there is no ONE ‘right’ way for setting and achieving goals. However, in my time as a wellness coach, there ARE some habits all of my successful clients have had in common when it has come to absolutely smashing their goals – ranging from leaving jobs for dream careers, travelling the world and regaining their physical and mental health.
Here are a few of their top traits:

Get clear about what you WANT

Make sure your goal is as crystal clear as it can possibly be. Rather than “I want a new job”, include SPECIFICS about the job you are looking to find. For example, I had a client who wanted to leave her current role. She didn’t know exactly what she wanted to find, however there were TRAITS she wanted her new role to embody. So, her goal was “In 12 weeks I will have found a new role, at a company that inspires me, with a short commute and no need for public transport, allowing me a life outside work, with a salary of $x”.
Sure enough, 12 weeks later, she was walking into her brand-new role which ticked all of these boxes.
 
Write it down – every day
Keeping a journal is an important way to really stay committed to your goals. By writing down the goals you want to achieve, and reflecting on these regularly, you will be able to monitor your thoughts around these goals – because here’s another thing – they might just change! A few months after setting a particular goal, you might find it isn’t for you anymore. That is OKAY! But unless you are committed to showing up and putting in the work towards achieving these goals every day, then it is easier to forget them and push them to the side. Journaling keeps you accountable and helps crystallise ways around HOW will you achieve your goals.
 
Vision boards 
If you aren’t entirely sure what your goals are for the year ahead, vision boards are a wonderful way of discovering what it is you are passionate about. Take some time to sit with a heap of magazines, or scroll through inspiring pages on Instagram, and notice the images and words that capture your attention. Collate a Pinterest board, or cork board, of these images and notice an underlying theme form.
A client of mine, after working on her vision board, realised that it was a dream of hers to work at a retreat in Hawaii. Literally 1 month after this realisation, she had left her secure corporate role and is moving to live and work in Hawaii for 3 months this year.
 
Set goals in the POSITIVE
Words are SO powerful. Too often we set ourselves up for failure by setting goals in the negative.
For instance, “I won’t eat chocolate anymore” should instead be “I will eat less chocolate next week than I did this week.”
Setting positive goals allows much greater chance for success and is a far gentler approach, with limited pressure. Look at what you WILL do rather than what you WON’T.
 
Set yourself up for SUCCESS not failure
Too often we set ourselves these intense, crazy goals, knowing in the back of our mind we will never reach them, then beating ourselves up about it when we don’t because we feel like a failure. Goal setting should be fun and ACHIEVABLE! Yes, there should be an element of challenge, but not so much to be causing you stress every day.
Set small goals, in weekly blocks, rather than massive 1-year goals, and see how good you feel when you achieve these. CELEBRATE when you achieve the goals that were more challenging.
You can read more about stress management here.
 
Enlist the help of a coach
Sometimes goal setting can feel a bit much, and you just need someone to walk you through the process, which is where the guidance of a coach comes in handy.
Face Plus Medispa offers goal setting and accountability sessions with their in-house wellness coach, Hollie Azzopardi.

Fresh Start: The Basic Essentials

[vc_row full_width=”” css=”.vc_custom_1457063834351{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1457064161918{padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Fresh Start: The Basic Essentials

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
It’s the beginning of the year and it’s pretty clear that a large percentage of the population had an average 2016!
It’s time to invest in your skin and start with a clean slate.
Once you hit the age of 25 we begin to lose the all-important collagen and elastin! Read more about that here.
Here is a brief rundown of the essential products you need on your shelf:
HydroPeptide, Cleansing Gel: $75
There are many reasons why cleansing twice a day daily is imperative. You may have heard the term “Free Radicals” but this is referring to pollutants and bacteria that might be floating around in the air. Throughout the day, the skin on your face comes into contact with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt and old skin cells. Cleansing your face daily will remove these impurities. The HyrdoPeptide range of products are ideal as they are all jam packed with PEPTIDES! Peptides signal cells to make more collagen to repair damaged cell structures.

 
HydroPeptide, Exfoliating Cleanser: $69
We encourage our patients to exfoliate at least two to three times a week depending on your skin type. Exfoliating allows the body to shed skin cells and generate new ones. Read more about the product here.

Dr Spiller, Cucumber Toner: $68
Toning your skin is an important part of the cleansing process. Toner helps soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin and removes any remaining oil, dirt and debris that may be remaining following your cleanse.

 
 
Dr Spiller, Propolis Day Cream: $80
MOISTURISE!!! This is probably one of the most important steps in your skincare regime. The Propolis Cream may not be appropriate for all but this is by far the most popular facial moisturising cream in our clinic. Moisturising your skin will help maintain the balance in your skin. This particular cream contans active anti-bacterial ingredients to purify problematic complexions prone to breakouts, pimples and acne. It’s great cream that can be used day and night.

That’s it, four essential products you need to be using if you are looking to improve your skin health.

Trendy: 2017, Rad or fab?

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
Hot or not? We’re here to share 2017’s beauty trends with you and how to best care for your skin to ensure these trends don’t impact your skin health!

GLITTER
Glitter is appearing EVERYWHERE! Glitter lips, glitter under liner, glitter contouring or otherwise known as strobing, is a trend we have seen appearing on catwalks and across social media. We would categories this one under fad.
These trends are fun but it’s important to take your skins needs into consideration. Glitter on the skin causes a number of skin imperfections, including milia, inflammation and accelerate sebum on the skin, causing the skin to clog and over produce oil, suffocating the sebaceous gland.
We’re all for you rocking this trend but here are our key tips:
1. Always apply a primer all over the face and areas where the glitter will be applied. The primer will shield and protect the skin from any sensitivity the glitter may cause.
Jane Iredale, Smooth Affair: $78

2. Around the eyes always apply an eye cream prior to glitter application. It will act as a shield for the pores, protecting them from trapped sebum and milia.
Dr Spiller, Silk Balm: $154

3.  Glitter on the lips can cause blackheads along the lip line and would not recommend products with lanolin in the ingredients such as “Vaseline”, lanolin can accelerate hair growth (no, thank you!). We would highly recommend a hyaluronic lip plumping peptide gloss to keep the lips moist, supple whilst plumping and protecting.
HydroPeptide, Perfecting Gloss: $60

Following the above tips will help you come out of this fad, unscathed!

EYEBROW TATTOOING
Eyebrow tattooing has been around for a few years and it’s definitely going to be sticking around. Enter our “Twenty SevenQueen” competition and you can win your very own eyebrow transformation! Click here to see competition
Eyebrow tattooing is a huge time saver, but those with oily skin or those who have laser treatments may find their brows fading a lot quicker than expected.
Here are the steps to ensure your tattoo lasts for as long as possible:
1. Some make removers contain stripping agents such as glycolic and salicylic, which will strip the pigment of colour in the tattoo, fading it drastically.
