I wholeheartedly believe that when we take time for ourselves and reset out "button", we can simply find joy in just "being" or we can use that new found strength after rest, to ignite the courage to conquer just about anything. In turn, just be the best, most beautiful you- ever. Massage therapy & Facials reset buttons, big smiles!


Jenny our wonderful massage therapist has extended hours this week:

Jenny- our LOVELY Massage Therapist

As a massage therapist myself I'd like to share that I do practice what I preach.  This time of the year I feel good about scheduling myself in for routine massage visits and facials.  After the holidays and New Year, I tend to want to get back into a routine again, being more conscious of how often I'm exercising and what I am eating.  In this awareness of health is the need and desire to receive regular massage and facials.  Massage helps me to feel less fatigued, it helps me sleep better, it increases my ability to handle day to day stresses and the oils used nourish my skin during this very dry time of year.  Being 5 months pregnant, massage has helped ease those nasty calf cramps I've been getting in the middle of the night.  I am so thankful to be able to offer such a healing and rejuvenating service to my clients and I'd like to encourage people to start thinking of massage less as a luxury and more as a means to living your life to the fullest most glorious potential, inside and out.

The Beauty of Vulnerability

As I say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013 I can't help but to reflect on all that has happened or what hasn't happened. Starting fresh is very appealing to me. Wipe the slate clean and begin again. Hooray!

I have been bombarded with life lessons in the past year (ok- five years) and just recently (finally) feel firmly planted in my own solid ground. I have grown as a mother, prospered in my business and met many wonderful folks along the way.

The word "Vulnerability" keeps coming up! Typically I am a risk taker in business, not so much in relationships. Knock, Knock- A golden opportunity is knocking on my door- being vulnerable, staying open and trusting could actually be the key to my happiness in my new relationship and in my new business ventures. This my sweet gal pals is the beauty of vulnerability.


PS: I ran across a special video that sums all this up.

YAY! Welcome Newbies

I am tickled pink today, know why? Today is the day that the wonderful FedEx man delivered my brand new glossy labels for my brand new Norabloom cleanser and face creme. Norabloom Botanicals is known for chemical free, compassionate, nurturing skin care. For a solid year, I have been working like a crazy woman on these new products. Although I still have one more to complete the set of four. I think we have reason to celebrate! Don't you? These little newbies are even more gentle than the rest. Gals with compromised skin, dry, peeling, sensitive skin should give them a try.

I do believe a celebration dance is in order, or at least a jump for JOY!

Little Moments: What The Heck?

I rush to get up in the morning, I rush to get ready, I rush to work. Then I get to work to encourage my guests to relax and unwind. What is wrong with this picture? I had this "what the heck" moment when I was leaving work last week. A little, tiny leaf appeared beneath me in the parking lot behind my office. I actually took a second to stop-  There it was- a cute little heart shaped leaf, the only one in the entire parking lot. First thing, I took a quick picture. I sent it to the fella right away, he replied, I leaf you. How adorable is that? I got to thinking I leaf me too. I need to stop rushing around like a crazy person just to get to that place of ok now it is time to relax and unwind. So... I am working on that. I went outside behind my building and there are a zillion of these heart shaped leaves laying all over the parking lot. I get it now. Rest is not a reward for all your hard work. Leaf yourself and take time for you.

An Amazing Woman You Need To Know

Deborah Allison, CHHC

As a Certified Holistic Health Coach, I'm your personal guide to living a healthy and energized life.  My mission is to support women and professionals in making the food and lifestyle choices that heal their body and renew their spirit.  I cherish my role as a change facilitator and healthy living advocate for my clients!I didn’t know it at the time, but my early love of cooking would later become a lift-off point for my career as a holistic health coach.  From my early 20’s on…I always thought I was making the right food choices, yet I struggled to maintain my ideal weight and feel healthy.  At 29, and again at 42, I learned that my symptoms of weight gain, sinus infections, allergies, early signs of arthritis and a complete lack of energy were primarily due to food intolerances.  In the process of taking control of my own health, my energy level skyrocketed, my digestion got back on track, my joint pain disappeared, I rarely experienced cravings and, as a natural side effect of all the delicious whole, clean foods, I lost those stubborn 10 pounds. I recognize others who are in the pain that I was once in, who don’t know where to turn and feel frustrated and exhausted.  It became my mission to be the “Nutrition Detective” for women and professionals who have the struggles that I did.  I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and, upon graduation, opened Integrative Holistic Wellness, my private health coaching practice located in beautiful IthacaNew York.  I am board certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and a member of the International Health Coach Association.I take great delight in introducing my clients to the power of eating a clean diet, and what a huge, positive impact this can have on how they feel.  If you’re interested in how I can support you in your health goals, let’s talk!
