My First Blog!
Hey, look at me getting all 21st century and starting a blog! It just seemed like the next thing to do after joining Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Although I don’t understand what LinkedIn is all about.
Why am I doing this? Well, I don’t want to get left behind in this technological world of communication and isn’t everyone doing this now? And I love sharing information.
I work as a Complementary Therapist in Leamington Spa, a beautiful town in Warwickshire. The “Spa” part of the name “Leamington Spa” comes from ‘medicinal’ spa waters around which the town developed.Leamington has drawn many people here over the years for its water and I feel that because of this, it has its own healing vortex. This could be why there are so many Healers and Therapists in the area?
The mineral springs were known about in the Middle Ages, but it was not until 1784 that the inhabitants re-discovered its saline springs and started building baths around them. Loved by the Victorians, these waters were widely publicised to have healing properties. It was claimed to cure, or relieve, a huge number of disorders including, stiffness of the tendons, the effects of gout and rheumatism and various paralytic conditions.
Although the water tastes very salty they say it is safe to drink and gets tested regularly. The vibrational quality is perfect for making essences and sprays because as the water travels underground it picks up minerals and energy form the earth. Add crystals, flowers and essential oils if you wish and you have a powerful tool for cleansing your personal space and creating a positive environment.
Well that’s my first blog done. Hope I haven’t bored you too much or been to woo woo.
Lots of love
