Emotional Development and How it Affects you in Business
As has been mentioned earlier in this chapter there are four aspects to our being, one of which is our emotional self. Most people are familiar with the physical self and the intellect, and they work on developing those aspects of who they are. Some work at developing their spiritual self or their intuition and psychic self, but very few people tackle their emotional self because it is sometimes too difficult or confronting for them to deal with.

The Most Important Part Of Cleansing The Face Is Using Water. Here are the reasons why:
Water is abundant. As a natural resource it is 75%of our environment, which makes water the most inexpensive item you can use on the face.
Water is an integral part of the human system. Human beings are about 70% water, which makes water compatible to everyone’s skin.
Water is GENTLE. But water is not automatically gentle. Water is only gentle when it is tepid. Hot water burns the skin and cold water will shock it. If the goal is to be gentle (and it is) then tepid water is essential.
Water is frictionless. When you splash the face with water you can then glide your hands over the face, preventing pulling on the skin. That means that makeup can be removed without tugging on the face. This can prevent irritation and reduce some amount of premature aging. Constantly wiping, tugging and pulling on the skin stretches out some of the skins inherent elasticity. Like a rubber band it can only take so much pulling till it won’t snap back anymore.

The face, although a small area of the overall total skin region on the body, manifests quite a lot of topical problems such as acne, wrinkles, sagging skin, sunburns, black-heads, dryness, irritation, eczema and allergies. Therefore looking after it can appear to be quite complicated and confusing if you haven’t done your research. Continue reading →
Holding left foot in left hand, cup the calf with the section of the hand between the thumb and the first finger, and run the right hand up the back of the calf to the knee. Turn the right hand over as you swivel the hand around and under to the shin, and then bring the right hand back towards yourself – right to the client’s toes. Apply pressure to the foot by closing the hand tighter. Repeat this whole action seven or eight times for the purpose of warming up the muscles.
Hold the left foot with both hands, placing thumbs in the middle of the underside (sole) of the foot. Do not allow the thumbs to move from that position. Use the inside edge of the whole of the first finger – right from where the thumb joins the palm of the hand up to the tip of the first finger – of both hands to stroke the bones and the ligaments on top of the foot. Occasionally pull the energy out of the feet via the toes.
Next, use your thumbs against the ball of the foot to massage each section below the toes. This can be done either using one hand, or both at the same time. Use the padded part of the thumb, not the tip. Pull down on each toe as you complete working on each padded area at the base of each toe. Some-times you will hear a ‘click’ as the bones separate.
Using your nails, press along the outside edge of the foot (firmly enough to make the skin go white). ‘Fan’ the heel with your nails in a circular motion. Then, press between the bones on the ball of the foot. The inside edge of the instep and the big toe will stimulate the spine if using reflexology pressure.
Then, stand to the side of the table to begin working on the calf. Sweep the whole leg using the forearm right up to the buttock. The elbow is ‘in’ at the start of the sweep and ‘out’ on the way back.
When working on the buttock, use the fan action with the hands.
Massage up from the buttock towards the centre of the spine on the muscle that connects the buttocks and the spine.
Start again on the opposite side.
When finished both legs, buttocks and lower back, commence working from the side of the body on the whole back. Using both hands work on the opposite side of the body from where you stand.
Work from the spine outwards. Use the padded part of the base of the thumb on the hand closest to the buttock to sweep from the spine to the side of the body. Pay particular attention to the muscle that runs along the spine. Start at the base of the spine and work up towards the neck. Combine this action with a follow-through action using the opposite hand.
When nearing the shoulder and arm run both hands down the arm and pull back towards the chest, ending in a swirling motion.
Of all the healing arts, massage is one of the oldest and the simplest. Every day we unconsciously employ massage techniques because the desire and need to touch, and the action of touching, is instinctual. We stroke our temples to sooth a headache, we hold a friend’s hand to comfort them, we ‘rub away’ a child’s knocks and if there is any injury we ‘kiss it better’. Anyone can further develop this fundamental capacity for touch to provide physical and psychological benefits, which are therapeutic to both the giver and the receiver of massage.
