Ask the Experts : Oriental Medicine

Qigong at Como Bali

I’ve been feeling the stress of running a business, being a single Mum of a six year old and going back to business school lately. I knew that my body was out of sync, but I didn’t ‘have time’ to do anything about it. Screech and rewind!

I run a luxury wellness travel company for goodness sake. How am I supposed to inspire others if I can’t keep myself balanced and healthy?  Without further ado, I booked a private consultation in with David Melladew, Oriental Medicine Consultant at one of our favourite wellness sanctuary partners, COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali.

He began the session with a divine tea ceremony. I love people who are passionate about what they do and that shone through with David.

In this Ask the Experts Health Blog I ask David about Stress and how Oriental Medicine can play a part in finding that essential life balance. Chill out and read on…

5 tips for facing life’s challenges without losing it

self healing retreats

It’s all well and good with practicing a little meditation, sweating it out on the yoga mat, but how do you cope when life kicks you in the proverbials?

I was brought up to stay strong and carry on, which actually hasn’t always helped when all I wanted to do was have a good cry. I’ve recently been given a more than triple whammy in my life. Seeking help outside my usual healthy vices, I decided to see a life coach, come spiritual guide and various holistic health practitioners who have been helping me to ask myself what I want and helping me to see my part in the my life situations.

Self Healing and Spirituality in Asia

 Yoga and Self-Healing in Bali

self healing retreats

It’s all well and good to go to your yoga class, to do your 20 minute meditation and talk about spirituality..but then you must live it. And here’s the rub. Life isn’t a continual series of Shivasana (much as that sounds highly appealing to me right now!). Life is full of challenges, can be a roller coaster and god damn it if I don’t lose my cool now and again!
