What I love about Christmas

merrychristmasI love Christmas! It’s such a fantastic time of year. It’s truly magical!

I love the lights, the cheer, the prettiness and the excitement of it all.

What I do struggle with is the materialistic side of Christmas. Don’t get me wrong, I love buying and receiving presents. It’s great to be able to spoil the ones you love but the true magic is in finding a gift that you know they’ll really love. It’s not the amount of money you’ve spent or how flashy it is or the fact it’s the latest technology that really makes a gift special and treasured. It’s knowing someone so well that you can make or choose a perfect gift without having to ask them for ideas and it being something really personal and special to them.

Having to ask people close to me what they want and having set budgets really doesn’t do it for me. I appreciate it makes it easier and we’re all busy but you lose all the spontaneity and surprise of it all. I heard a lovely tale from a client this week about a gift she had made for a close friend and how she had researched the idea she had and bought the ingredients to make the perfect present especially for her. It can’t be bought from the shops and it’s not expensive but that friend will be delighted at all the care and attention that has gone into it.

So my Christmas wish this year is to be surprised with a gift that has been made or picked carefully for me, and even more importantly, to be thankful and make the most of every minute I have with my closest family.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas.

Eat, drink and be merry.

NEW Zone Face Lift

  "Before I visited Relax Rebalance I had never heard of Zone Face Lift. After experiencing it for the first time I am absolutely amazed and blown away by the results! Not only was the treatment utterly amazing, (totally unlike me to fall asleep wow!)
My skin after feels much tighter, fresher and generally zingier! I will be recommending this treatment to all of my friends - an absolute must for busy mums and now I'm over 40 I am keen to keep my lines under control! Thank you so much Relax and Rebalance I thoroughly enjoyed the treatment and will be back again for another one very soon!" Polly, Wokingham March 2019

“Having been trying to conceive for quite some time I contacted Rebecca. Within three months I fell pregnant. I would recommend reflexology with Rebecca to anyone who is trying to have a baby, it is very relaxing and I’m sure it made a difference for me."

"I want to shout from the rooftops about a lovely lady I think each and every one of you should go to. Without going into lots of details my partner and I struggled with fertility problems for over 3 years, we tried everything from conventional medicines and homeopathic remedies. The month I finally fell pregnant naturally I was having weekly reflexology sessions with the lovely Rebecca Hogan at Relax Rebalance and I believe this is the main thing that helped us to conceive. Rebecca is such a lovely, kind, throughtful and caring person and I will carry on seeing her throughout my pregnancy and beyond. If your not struggling from fertility problems she can help with stress, anxiety and other problems as well, she is a wonderwoman!! A massive thank you to Rebecca who without I couldn't imagine sitting here staring at my first scan picture xxx"

"Pregnancy reflexology has not only provided me with the space to totally relax and switch off, but has also alleviated those niggling pregnancy aches and pains. Thank you Rebecca!"
