What’s in the Pot?

Cucumber Water

Cumber water is my favourite thirst quencher in hot weather. Simply slice into any container except plastic, add water then cool for an hour before drinking. But this simple fruit has so much more to it!

Cooling, soothing, purifies the blood, cools the liver, is a diuretic.

It’s All in the Head!

Indian Head Massage was the first massage I learned many years ago and it is still up there as one of the most requested massages. I think most people have at least heard of it or maybe have a friend that has tried it and so it has slipped into mainstream massage territory. Part […]
