I only started going for regular facials at 31, as I thought it was about time 😉 I count myself fortunate to have gotten to know Veron, the owner of Nourish Naturally, as she doesn’t only focus on the aesthetics, but the science and health benefits behind facial therapies. She does the entire treatment without any machines, using only her hands for that personal touch.
Apart from facials, she also does manual lymphatic drainage massages. She has recently expanded that treatment to include high quality essential oils from Young Living and their Raindrop technique, which focuses on the spine. Do note that the treatment she offers is not the full Raindrop sequence. It is her own special fusion to include the best of both worlds, from lymphatic drainage and spinal massage.
I decided to try it out as my spine always feels a little ‘crooked’. In reality, the muscles around it are very tight. I actually wouldn’t have tried it if it were just the Raindrop technique, as there’s some controversy surrounding it based on my own research. What I like is that Veron uses common sense, and adapts it according to every individual’s bodily requirements, such as diluting the oils and adjusting her techniques where necessary.
The benefits of lymphatic drainage massages are well-known, and aids with a variety of health problems by rebalancing the parasympathetic nervous system (your body’s fight or flight response). This can help with both fatigue and relaxation, ridding edema (water retention), and many more general health and wellness issues. From what she tells me, most of her customers feel relaxed and sleep well after. For me, I felt a rare improvement in my energy levels.
The reason Veron approached me and wishes to offer this special discount for readers of A Chronic Voice, is that her personal interests lie in the science of such therapies. In fact, she’s currently studying for her Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition, so that she can help her clients even further! She has a passion for using her skills beyond aesthetic reasons, and wants to help those with chronic illnesses lead a better quality of life.
