40th Anniversary of Rural Rootz
When he told me, without thinking I vehemently answered,
The land itself with its crevice caves, deep woods, beaver ponds and wild life is a sacred spot that affects all who find themselves drawn here. After 40 years of being gentle on this land we have finally realized one of my dreams for this place ... we are evolving
Rural Rootz into
Your Healing Oasis.
Dee Cherrie Ashman
I was trained as a primary school teacher. I hold certificates in Reiki, Reflexology and Body Talk. A lifetime of meditation, relaxation and yoga practices has led me to a deep understanding of our need for spiritual and emotional connections to the Earth.
I am a dabbler in the art of life exploring my skills as teacher, carpenter, stone mason, gardener, writer and poet and finally artist. The time has come to turn my explorations to my healing skills.
My Timely Tip for this first blog comes from Reflexology.
Place your thumb on the outside of your hand and your index finger on the palm side of your hand. You may need to poke around a little to locate it but when you do find it you will know.
Apply steady pressure. It will feel like a "good pain."
On the palm side of this point is the adrenal gland reflex which helps to rebalance the body which is under stress. This is an effective and safe way to stop a headache in its tracks and can be repeated as necessary.
Apply firm pressure for up to a minute. Repeat on the other hand.
