The Center for Balanced Living Holistic Health Symposium and Trade Show

This past Saturday, Casco Bay Organics was invited to attend the 1st Annual The Center for Balanced Living Holistic Health Symposium and Trade Show at The Center for Balanced Living at 74 Lunt Road in Falmouth. They packed their auditorium with everything from holistic healers to motivational brain coaching, to organic produce delivered, to reflexology gods, and rocks and crystals and stones OH MY!  The idea was to bring a strong group of like minded individuals together and introduce themselves and their passion to the community.

I had the sincere please of being seated next to Susan Kent, a Reiki practitioner and hypnotherapy extraordinaire.  What a delightful spirit and genuinely kind human being.  Susan was scheduled to give a group talk about hypnotherapy and I thought, hey why not. I have never been hypnotized! Let’s see how this goes.  I had no idea what was about to happen. People often think about hypnosis as being made in to someone’s puppet perhaps, but with hypnotherapy, it’s bit different. This is all about relaxation and being present in the space you create in your mind.  By the end of the session, which took about 20 minutes, the entire energy in the room had been calmed and everyone was extremely relaxed.  It felt almost like falling asleep, but being present, if you can wrap your brain around that! That energy stayed with me throughout the rest of the day. I felt, rejuvenated, awake, present, and HAPPY!

 

I met some cool cats from Anchor Wellness in Falmouth as well.  Matthew Baker, LMT teaches at SpaTech Institute and has practiced massage therapy since 2007.  Matthew also does reflexology. He offered me a session, so of course I said YES! I have plantar fasciitis and I knew reflexology was something involving your feet and massage. I was having a particularly good day on Saturday with minimal pain and by the end of the session, I was pretty much pain free and it has lasted me until today! I am thrilled! To have continued relief from day to day is not something I get on a regular basis and I am so excited for my appointment on Friday!  I cannot wait for more long lasting relief.

Take care of your feet. They carry you around!

It was a pleasure to meet so many people that share the same goal in life and in business. To be around people who truly care about your well being is inspiring and motivating. What you need to know, you YES YOU, need to take care of yourself.  Your body is your temple and you only get one shot. A wise person once said that once you lose your health, you will spend a lifetime trying to get it back.  Words to live by.

Be kind to you. Be kind to your loved ones.  Be kind to all creatures, great and small. Live, laugh, love, and breathe and most importantly, do not forget to smile.  You are amazing!
