What I like to use to help with sciatic pain or carpal tunnel

I have found to be helpful mixing some arnica oil with some St. John’s worts oil together and massaging it into the aggravated nerve or joint area . I usually have my clients do daily and they say it really seems to be helpful .

Surfing the waves of contractions and life

” YOU CANT STOP THE WAVES BUT YOU CAN LEARN TO SURF ” – Jon Kabat Zinn

In life there is a natural Ebb and flow , What goes up must come down , busy times are followed by slow times .. this is a natural law of the universe . I think about this often in labor as I help women ride the waves of their contractions . There is always a beginning and end , A high point and a low point . Life can become stressful when we don’t go with the natural current of where life is pulling us to go . When we fight against the natural flow its like swimming up stream in a roaring fast river which will leave one totally depleted and exhausted . When you can surrender yourself completely to the process or journey and become one with the waves you will get there faster and easier then when you resist. think of the waves of life like a magic carpet ride. When you can let go and go with the flow of where life is pulling you ( Even if you don’t understand ) trust there is a bigger picture being created that will unfold from the journey .

Having a doula by your side during labor is like having your very own private surf instructor coaching you throughout every wave that will eventually bring you closer to shore where you will meet your baby . Through breath , visualization , sound , massage , movement ,encouragement, doulas are angels that provide nurturing and Support . We are non stop right by your side  ,holding a space and helping guide you into finding your own way as your out there on your board surfing those waves .
