September is here!
Oh my! It has been too many months since my last newsletter/blog. Life really has a way of scooping us up and taking us quickly along. It was a long, adventure filled summer that also came with down time, introspection, emotional growth and spiritual expansion. The balance of activity and quiet. It is sometimes that quiet part that can be challenging to navigate. Allowing the flow, observing the anxious moments and shadowy thoughts, staying quiet and listening to the answers.
And now, it is September! Back to school, back to " normal", back to where maybe you left off. And, it is the beginning of my favorite season, Autumn. The Fall Equinox is another time of balance. A slow and gentle shift into the next season, the next part.
This mid summer was the one year anniversary of blume. It was a full and intentional year to say the least! I have enjoyed every moment of this journey and I am looking forward to another year full of growth and expansion. In celebration, I have decided to have a different offer each month through the end of the year. Last month I extended 20% towards all gifts and services. This month, I am donating 10% of all proceeds to Metavivor.org.
Metavivor ( Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness, Research and Support ) is an organization that was introduced to me by my beloved client Stacey Fuller who lost her fight with cancer this year. I have a chair in the corner of my studio that I refer to as Stacey's Chair. There she sat every month while we talked endlessly about life. I miss her deeply, think of her often and am honored to donate in her name.
In The Studio:
~I am now offering Facial Cupping! It is a noninvasive modality that stimulates beneath the surface of the skin, works beautifully to engage the lymph system and helps sooth sinus inflammation. Plus, it feels good! A great add on service.
~Restorative Treatment A beautiful, ritual kind of treatment.. A blend of the Relaxation Treatment with Shakti Reiki and Chakra Balancing infused within the journey. Transforming and balancing, it helps release the stresses our bodies carry and allows the lymph system to flow freely, stimulating organ function, boosting the immune system and nourishing the spirit. $175/90 min.
~ A series of Relaxation Treatments can also be purchased. It is a nice way to have regular self care, prepaid. Or, use as gifts! Series of 3 $300 ($375 value)
My website is growing as I add more services. www.blume.studio. It is possible to book online thru the site as well.
And, I have an amazing massage therapist sharing the studio! Tanya Edmonds is here offering her extraordinary massages on the days when I am not in the studio. In celebration of blume's one year anniversary, we are extending our limited offer:
~75 min Relaxation Treatment Facial with a 90 min Personalized Massage $200 ( $ 275 value ) * may be used separately or together.
Blessings and peace, Kathleen Blum Van Dusen
