Banana Oatmeal ‘Pancakes’
I’ve been talking about this with my massage clients, so I figured I’d post it. I originally made these at a camping event. We were in charge of breakfast for about 40, and had a huge pot of leftover oatmeal. I was skimming the crusty bits off the top, and my friend Nancy said, “WhyContinue reading “Banana Oatmeal ‘Pancakes’”
Making Body Butter
I started doing Ashiatsu (Barefoot Massage) 10 years ago. Because I’m standing on the client, adding more oil or lotion once I’m up there is difficult. Body Butter does not absorb into the skin as quickly as oil, or lotion. I started making it right away, but what I’m whipping up now is much nicer,Continue reading “Making Body Butter”
Why Ashiatsu (Barefoot) Massage?
https://www.facebook.com/ThePlaceChicopee/videos Massaging with my feet seems natural to me. It’s deep, broad pressure. Most of my clients comment the first time they receive Ashiatsu, that they would not know it was not my hands. I start seated, above the head. Working with mostly my heals, I can can go light, or deep around the shoulderContinue reading “Why Ashiatsu (Barefoot) Massage?”
Lava Jewelry ~ Natural Defussers for Essential Oils
Lava beads are naturally very porous, so just a few drops of essential oils on the lava beads will defuse over time slower than if you put the oil directly on the skin. If you put the oil on with your finger tips, you will have the best of both topical, and Inhalation. To meContinue reading “Lava Jewelry ~ Natural Defussers for Essential Oils”

Showing off My Sprouts
I thought I would show off a little at Epic Skill Swap, and make a sprout salad for the Friday night pot luck. I forgot, then started the seeds a little to late. The new plan! I’ll bring the sprouting seeds, so everyone can watch them grow! They should be ready to eat by Sunday.Continue reading “Showing off My Sprouts”
Before you ask how much….
Wouldn’t you rather first want to ask about the massage? About me, the therapist? Tell me what you’re looking for, and see if I’m knowledgeable about the treatment? Wouldn’t you want to know why I do what I do? Don’t you want to know how the experience is going to be, before you decide whatContinue reading “Before you ask how much….”
Diane’s version of yoga.
I’ve been questioning my style of teaching in yoga. ‘I’m not like other teachers’ , my inner critic will say. I do not feel the strength as a yoga teacher, that I feel as a massage therapist. I love yoga, and love teaching, however teaching yoga does not light me up the way teaching ReikiContinue reading “Diane’s version of yoga.”
