In the Chinese system, the center is the direction associated with the Earth Element. This energy is directly connected with a specific period of time called "DOYO", which means "Transitions" and precedes each change of season. It is particularly strong when we move from Winter to Spring and Summer to Fall and often coincides with planetary movements such as Mercury going into retrograde. We are experiencing DOYO right now and although there are specific characteristics that define this time we have learned that we can expect all kinds of changes in many areas of our lives.
It is especially important during transitions of this nature that one learns how to maintain balance of their entire being. I choose to view this period as an opportunity to be present, embrace the changes and grow as a result. I can't say there is any one "magic" solution that will create immediate balance. I can say with certainty that by cultivating a daily practice in the present moment one can achieve a homeostatic state where health and wellbeing co-exist.
Each month I facilitate a "Present Moment Practice" class as well as offer comprehensive, individual healing sessions that assist in creating a conscious awareness of ones personal energetic systems. This is the perfect time to acknowledge the transitions and restore yourself.
I am always happy to share the specific information and protocol regarding how one can implement these amazing energetic programs on a daily basis and help to achieve an on-going state of balance.

Winter weather bringing you down? Are you feeling heavy and tired? Does it take every effort to get out of bed and begin a new day? You are not alone, for statistics show January is the most dreaded month with issues abounding with depression, SAD affliction, illness and even suicide. The post holidays bring tons of anguish and the bitter cold weather adds to any stress.
I have an anecdote that guarantees freedom of unwanted adversity. Random acts of kindness. Simple and true. It is human nature o feel good about giving to another human. We lose track of how connected we are and perhaps if we remind ourselves how integral we are to each other, we will make a difference. It is in the small steps that can bring change when we get stuck in ruts. Begin by sending a smile to a stranger. Perhaps that will trigger a response and that person will be kind to another before you know it many people have felt the impact of a single gesture throughout the day.
At Your Natural Element Day Spa and Salon, we are committed to bring a smile to each of our clients, all day, every day. It is not uncommon to see people walk in our door with droopy shoulders or high stress levels and leave on cloud nine, with serenity in their soul.
~ Thank you Roberta Wind for your kind words ~
