_We've had a pretty good winter here in Cambridge, ON so far, but if you are already wishing for spring, the good news is that it's almost behind us now (no matter what the groundhog says, hehehe). Take advantage of all the great winter fun you can have in these last few weeks. Take the kids (or a loved one) for a winter walk in the woods, go sledding or snowmobiling, build a snowman or just relieve some stress with some good old snowball throwing. However you do it, just get outside on the sunny days to soak up some extra vitamin D.
At Soul Treatments we are looking forward to a fun February with some great specials to warm everyone up! Turn your back on the cold or flu, say goodbye to stuffy sinuses and check out how much your relaxation increases when you add heated lava stones to your treatment.
Don't forget that February 14th is Valentine's Day and gift certificates for a relaxing and rewarding treatment are a great way to show someone how much you care.
Check out the offers below and call or email to book a time for you to Put up your Feet, Relax your Mind.

I can't believe 2011 is over! What a great year for Soul Treatments. This was the first year that outside of my family, my business was my only priority. And dedicating the attention to Soul Treatments proved to be very beneficial to so many people - but mostly to me!!
In 2011, I worked with 8 wonderful woman showing them the benefits of Maternity Reflexology through pregnancy or in preparation for labour. I worked one on one with 2 new Moms showing them how they can use Infant Reflexology to help with common discomforts their baby may have, along with teaching 12 people in class who work with new moms the same techniques and appeared on the local TV show Daytime to tell countless others about the benefits of Reflexology for Infants and Children. I witnessed 2 births and supported the parents through the labour and delivery, along with the first few weeks postpartum. I worked with 8 woman to help them meet their wellness goals through consistent and customized treatments. Not to mention the countless others that did wellness check-ins. Indian Head Massage became a very popular treatment to so many more people this year, either on it's own or combined with Reflexology. And 23 new clients decided to see how Soul Treatments could help them. What a great year filled with great people!!
I learned a lot in 2011. I learned that I can't do this alone! I need others and their support to help me grow, improve and simply keep going each day. Along with that I learned it is ok to ask for help from those important people around me. It doesn't make me weak to need help, it makes me stronger to know that it's available to me. And I've made many friends along this journey by learning this lesson. I learned to delegate! Although this task was important to learn for so many aspects of my life, most important was to delegate control of my health care. Sometimes when you are involved in health care yourself, you think you know what the answers are automatically. But that's not true and I am so grateful to my health team - nutritionist, osteopath, reflexologist and RMT - for helping me keep in the best possible health and teaching me so many things I can tell others to help teach them as well. I learned that when you need a break, you should take it! Going to bed early because I am tired is what I need to do if I want to be any help to anyone the next day, and the work doesn't actually get done when I'm tired anyway so I'm better off to take a break and rest. I learned that losing people hurts, a lot, but that you can and will go on afterwards! It is important to talk about it, if you need to, but sometimes it's important to self reflect as well so that you can move forward. I learned that I have patience and strength beyond what I ever knew and with that I can handle anything life throws my way! I learned that when something isn't working, you should try and find out why and make the changes you need to make so that it does work! You can't make a square peg fit into a round hole, no matter how many times you try. So find the round peg and move on.
Where are all these life lessons going to take Soul Treatments for 2012? First, I am ready to take another class and expand the services of Soul Treatments once again. I'm still deciding between two courses so stay tuned! Second, as my business and my child grow, I think it's time for Soul Treatments to have it's own space - outside my home. So you can expect that some time in the next year or so I will open my own clinic. I still need to put the ideas for that clinic into concrete forms instead of just my head, but it is in the works and I hope to see it happen in 2012 :) If you work in alternative health or run classes that would correspond to the goals of Soul Treatments, and would be looking for a place to call home in the coming year, I will be looking for other practitioners to join the new clinic team so give me a call and we can talk. Thirdly, I will be working hard to make sure that the benefits of Reflexology and other alternative forms of health care are known to people so that they can take control of their health and stop making stress create chaos in their life. Knowledge and empowerment are key!
I can't wait to share 2012 with you!! All the best.
