One of the first things I learned in the healing arts field is the idea of yin/yang or feminine/masculine. This idea that there are varying levels of passive versus aggressive tendencies within each and every one of us made so much sense once I began working on different bodies. Some people requested deeper pressure while others liked a lighter touch; some would talk the entire massage while others quickly escaped to a place of quiet. Two opposing astrological signs of the zodiac represent the mother and the father and these are known as Cancer and Capricorn. As I previously stated in an earlier blog post, Cancer and the Moon are full of maternal, intuitive and introspective vibrations. Capricorn on the other hand is known as the father and Saturn has the vibration of hard work, endurance, and logical thought processes. Capricorn men and women are fabulous go-getters who almost always achieve their goals after a lengthy and admirable trek to the top. A Capricorn is always climbing and this causes a lot of stress on the joints, in particular the knees. Myrrh essential oil can give the goat a beautiful sense of relief due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This essential oil is one of the best restorative oils and it is sure to help heal a variety of issues that typically result from stress and overwork. On an emotional level, Myrrh can encourage the acceptance of the self and others. It is thought of as a softening essential oil that helps to clear up congestion of the mind, skin, joints etc. Myrrh essential oil has long been associated with motherly love and therefore it is a perfect fit for balancing out the fatherly Capricorn. Be sure to come into the spa for a full body massage that will deliver a healthful boost to worn out joints and skin. We are here to serve and enjoy doing so, please stop by for some self care soon, your body is deserving of the love.
