Massage -Why it should be part of your health regime!


Massage these days is classed as a treat, something you would have only once a year, or maybe you’ve never experienced one. Why is this?

Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. I know you all can relate to this. What are you doing to look after yourself?

Do you wake up feeling tired and achy? Massages are not only relaxing but have soooo many health benefits.

Joint pain is a common issue that is experienced by so many. Receiving a regular massage will help with this pain. Did you know…medical professionals refer patients with joint pain to massage therapists.

Are you feeling stressed, anxious and over worked? Massage can cut your body’s level of stress hormone by half, allowing you to relax and take a much needed break.

Do you suffer from headaches? Headaches can be caused by tension in the neck that restricts blood flow to the brain. A regular neck massage will remove this tension, reliving those nasty headaches.

Art of Love can help. Get in touch to discuss your individual needs.



The Magic of The Lions Gate Portal 8 8 8



Astrological movements have massive effects on our daily lives, when we are in tune with nature and the universe life begins to flow. We have so much growing and learning available to us. Use this time wisely.

The lions gates portal is a cosmic alignment which happens on the 8th day of the 8th month in the star sign of Leo. The portal is open sooner than this but today is when the portal is fully open. Energy is extremely high at this time as the star Sirius shines brightly down on earth. Sirius is known as our spiritual sun and is said to be a place of higher consciousness. At this time Sirius is also in alignment with the pyramids in Giza.

Access to the spiritual realm and receiving downloads is said to be easier at this time. The star sign Leo is associated with the heart so this is a great time for healing. The alinement’s surges great healing lights of high frequency which can activate and awaken more of our spiritual self.

The number 8 in numerology is about balance and power. Today’s angel card I drew was also the balance card. The 8 balances the material and immaterial worlds. The yin and the yang. As with any number it has a positive and a negative side.

If things seem challenging at the moment stay in trust. Keep to the vibration of love. Use your energy wisely. This is a great day to meditate as today is the day the portal is fully open. Be open and ready to receive what this cosmic energy has to offer. We are all one and all part of the universe.

The lions gate remains open until 14th August. It’s time to recharge and rebalance. The solar plexus is key at this time. Sit with it and restore your energy centre.

Set your intentions and let this be a time of peace and harmony.

Much love, light and blessings.

The Moon Magic Cycle


Many a night I gaze into the sky and spend time looking at the beautiful moon. The light and how it is constantly changing has always fascinated. By nature women are lunar, its no coincidence that out menstrual cycle is 28 days and so is the moons. Even the actual words ‘menstruation’ and ‘menses’ come from the Latin word ‘mensis’ which means ‘month’ and relates to the Greek word ‘mene’ which means ‘moon’.

Beginning to learn more about my own cycle and how the moon can effect it, has lead me to write this blog. I want to share my knowledge with you, so you can understand your cycle better and live with you natural cycle in harmony.

I read that the natural cycle of women who live and sleep out in the open away from artificial light is to ovulate on the full moon and menstruate on the new moon. But this is not the case for most modern women whose natural rhythms are largely affected by artificial light and other factors. Just knowing your cycle even if it is not linked with the new and full moon, I believe can still make a massive difference to your life.

When your body and the moon are in sync, your cycle won’t feel like a pain, but an opportunity to go with the flow and with nature.

I track my cycle using an app called Flo, so I can plan my month around my cycle. I know that the first few days of my menstrual cycle tend to be the days I want to hibernate. That is only natural, as the new moon is a great time for women to look inward, honour their bodies and cleanse. So if you can, take time to nurture yourself! Listen to your body and do what feels right.

Ovulation is your brightest time? Do you know when you are ovulating? This is when we tend to have more energy, plan your diary. Go out for a run, do some yoga or maybe do the thing you have been putting of all month. You will feel like you want to on these days. Make the most of it. Shine bright on a full moon!


Begin to track your menstrual cycle. How does it relates to the moon cycle. Do you ovulate on the full moon and menstruate on the new moon? Or it’s something different. Don’t judge just observe how you feeling on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.

Are you ready to flow into your natural cycle? BEcoming more aware of YOU x

Love and blessings

Shungite EMF Protection


EMFs are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting.

Research and evidence is on the rise as to the health concerns and risks of EMF. We are surrounded by technology that makes most of us exposed to it. Mobile phones, WIFI routers (the list is endless) all could be seriously damaging our health and environment.

Microwaves for example – The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that you limit your exposure to 0.5 mG to 2.5 mG. When you are three feet away from a microwave, you are exposed to up to 25 mG. What is this doing to your health?

EMF’S can cause the symptoms of illness. Again this is not an exhausted list.

  • Nervous system symptoms, like fatigue, stress and problems sleeping
  • Skin problems like burning sensations and rashes
  • Body pains and aches in your muscles

Even if you are feeling well EMFs could still be having an impact on you.

Shungite is a stone which is not like any other here on mother earth. Shungite has a reputation of being able to absorb and neutralise EMFs due to its components on a molecular level. Here is a video link so you can see for yourself…


Shungite really is a magical stone and very much needed in this day and age of electronic equipment.

I am expecting a delivery in the next few days. If you would like one reserving please let me know. I know myself will be placing pieces around the house.

Love and blessings.
