Home' Spa and Clinic : Volume 65 May 2016 Contents to ensure no residue for the next guest.
• Clean the energy of the whole spa "space"
in the morning and at closing to ensure it
was 'fresh' for the new day.
"These concepts are again now being
embraced by salons, spas and clinics across
the board as being essential to the wellbeing
of the team, as well as clients, and therefore
the overall success of the business."
Says clair voyant, healer and creator of
Archangel Aromatherapy Rachael White:
"How often do you walk into a salon, spa or
clinic and pick up on "the vibe"? It's one of
the first things we notice about a space --
how it feels.
"When you meet someone and you
don't really know why but they `don't have
a good feeling', you're tapping into that
Maybe they just had a fight with
someone, or maybe they are in a bad mood,
lonely, depressed or anxious. Possibly the
feeling means their intentions are not good.
"Some of us are so incredibly sensitive to
it that another person's negative energy can
be almost impossible to be around.
"Therapists, healers, bodywork
practitioners and clair voyants, in my
experience, are all very sensitive to energy.
It is this sensitivity that contributes to them
being such a great therapist.
"Space clearing is for some of the top
spa and wellness destinations across
the globe as much a priority as their
"I have met so many therapists who've
told me how unwell they've felt after
working on particular clients.
"One told me that, during a bodywork
session, she felt something happen to her.
She was unable to return to the industry for
a couple of years because she continued to
feel unwell and was very vulnerable to other
"A cohesive and happy workplace
contributes to positive energy of a space. If
there are unresolved issues, these can manifest
as negative energy and will set the tone of the
environment. It won't matter how may team-
building days you send your staff on.
"It's not often that a client will complain
that the `space' didn't feel right', making
them uncomfortable, so you will never know
why you have a decline in appointments.
"A space that is `energetically well', kept
clean and high vibrationally will not only
support your clients' healing but transform
Things like crystals, incense, music,
candles and therapeutic oils dispensed by
infusers can be used to cleanse and lighten
the energy of spaces (and people).
THE GOOD OILS
Therapeutic grade essential oils have the
highest frequency of any natural substance
known to man, coupled with medicinal
properties to nourish, heal and uplift
the mind, body, spirit, soul and space,
according to Rachael White.
"They are soluble with the lipids in the
cell membrane and thus penetrate the
cellular wall within 21 minutes of coming
into contact with the body," she says.
"Healing begins in the brain. There
are 800 million ner ve endings in the nose
that detect odours. The ner ves from the
olfactory bulb extend back toward the
mid-brain and deep into the limbic brain
(where the pituitary, hypothalamus and
pineal glands reside) and finally to the
amygdala [the brain structure responsible
for autonomic responses associated with
fear and fear conditioning].
"The limbic is the oldest part of the
brain where all the emotions are stored.
It is also considered the seat of the soul
of the third eye chakra and it is here that
aroma can trigger memories and influence
emotions and behaviour.
"The brain registers smell twice as fast as
it does pain. Direct inhalation or diffusion
in a room will enhance emotional wellness,
as the aroma unlocks memories, emotions
and releases stress.
"I prefer to use a cold infuser for this
purpose as it better preser ves the integrity
of the oil."
SOMETHING IN THE AIR
Buildings devoid of nature star ve the body.
Buildings whose air is vitalised with high
frequency essential oil blends (essence of
rose being the highest) do the opposite,
according to Deirdre Light.
She and her life and business partner
Clive Newland also run Avatar Air, a
division of Manifesto of Light, a customised
consultancy established to assist businesses
to function at higher levels of health,
efficiency and consciousness.
"One client we worked with was
conducting a challenging language
program for 2,500 of their staff," she says.
"The participants were reluctant to
