Healthy Life Centre is a spacious place of calm amidst the buzz of Bread Street in the City Centre. People often comment on feeling more relaxed just by coming through the door! I've been practicing Shiatsu from Heathly Life Centre for three years plus (as well as previously from the lovely bijou Edinburgh Shiatsu Clinic). If you haven't nurtured yourself in a while, book in for a Shiatsu special offer until the end of October 2015 - keep reading.
Relaxing and being aware of your body (as you might be in a Shiatsu session or similar) has its own side-effect - the aches that have faded into perception background suddenly get a spotlight, as do emotions and thoughts we keep well hidden. I am certainly not the only person who has experienced feeling like EVERYTHING in my body is tense, achy and just plain WRONG at the start of a Shiatsu or a massage treatment. This is the start of the process of resolving/ transforming these stale states of being into a healthier you, but it can be a bit of a shock.
I feel so fortunate to be working from Meadowlark Yoga - it's full of positive open people and is dedicated to life of health, vitality and balance on every level. I can't help but smile every time I go in either to work or to a yoga class. Would you like to come along on a wee tour? I'll tell you about the new place and tempt you to visit with two offers along the way. To see my working days and prices please read my page . You can also book online.

I'll leave it to others to decide whether I was simply vulnerable to sugar cravings; whether the presence of an organism which craved it (such as candida) caused my sugar addiction; or whether there was some other reason altogether. For my part: I felt ill; I listened to my body, did what it seemed to be asking and then I felt better. (End of :-)).
weekends there’d be jam and butter on white bread with a glass of milk in front of Blankety Blank or The Generation Game …
I exercised heavily - lots of running, mostly distance, and other sports too. I filled the between-meals hunger with sweets, especially after I left home at the age of 17.
At a certain point, I noticed that my digestion was a problem. I visited the doctor with stomach pains (it felt like I was bleeding inside) and the initial suggestion was Fybogel for constipation/wind. This didn’t work. My pains grew exponentially; bowel movements were hit and miss. I had had enough. What I did however notice, one particularly painful Christmas, was that when I ate sugary things or alcohol, especially if they were consumed apart from a meal, my stomach immediately went into paroxysms. I knew a friend who had cut out sugar for health reasons, so decided I would follow her lead!
My regime for 6 months was this:
I’m so excited to finally get my website up and out there. This is a new direction for me and has been a labour of love – mind you my web developer Noah Breen did most of the heavy lifting! I do hope you like it.
