Lymph Drainage - Revive, Detox and Heal

Alternative TherapiesPosted by Mayka Mon, January 18, 2016 17:55:24

Christmas and the New Year’s parties are over, and we can now spend the rest of the month trying to recover. It will be easier to be good as soon as all the cakes and drinks are out of sight, but who knows, how are we going to get rid of all the rubbish we have collected over the past month or so.

The important function lymph nodes play in our bodies

Luckily, our body is the ultimate survival machine, and it has all kinds of amazing systems built in to cope with our daily sins and lifestyle choices. One of them is definitely the lymphatic system, an enormous network of lymph nodes, connected with lymph veins and tiny capillaries. If we really want to simplify it, this is the main sewage system of the city where your soul lives. Its main and most important duty is to dispose of everything that is no longer needed, make space for more nourishing materials and new building blocks for your body’s recovery and best functioning.

The lymph nodes are tiny filtration stations that have the unique ability of noticing and selecting the waste materials that are useless or harmful to our best functioning. They vary from the size of a pea to a larger kidney bean, and they are usually found in clusters in the under arm area, around the groin, in the neck and collar bone area.

We all have them, but not all of us have the same density and strength of our lymph system, which directly influences our immunity, our speed of recovery after illnesses and generally the vitality and energy. I am sure you know someone that can power through a flu season, bad weather and a boiler malfunction without a single sneeze, and then there is this other friend who catches everything everywhere, even though they might be taking care of themselves quite well. That is the power of a lymph system.

...and how a Lymph Drainage massage can help

So how do you make the most out of what you have? The manual Lymph Drainage is a very specific type of massage, which literally clears your lymph vessels out, speeds up healing, recovery and improves overall performance.

It is a very gentle and relaxing massage technique, where we channel the lymph fluid in the right directions to help the body with the cleansing process. This boosts our defence abilities, improves our reflexes, gives us that last bit of an advantage in case we are a professional athlete that really needs to win this race. Some professional sports teams require their masseuse to offer this type of a massage, as it is not only a great preparation for performance, but also speeds up the recovery and healing in case of injuries.

But if you can't have your professional sports masseuse by your side at all times, you need something quick in your sports bag to give you the needed boost, help you achieve the peak performance and allow you to recover quicker. The Argi+ is your choice. With the aid of L-Arginine it helps oxygenise and nourish the body throughout the activity.

Facial lymph drainage is also a very rejuvenating treatment that minimises wrinkles, puffy eyes and dark circles, and leaves the skin radiant and fresh. The improved circulation and ridding the skin of the exhausting waste materials makes the complexion very accepting of whatever we offer. It is advised to only use the top quality natural products after this massage, as you get twice as much benefit then without having the treatment done. The Sonya range is my absolute favourite, as it is based on the pure active Aloe Vera gel, but also has an added benefit of herbal extracts and essential oils, that are on its own really powerful.

Another amazing use of manual lymph drainage is in preventing and fighting the cellulite, AKA the orange skin. We can do a certain variation of a lymph drainage to target the stubborn deposits of fibrotic fatty tissue, that is poking through the deeper layers of skin. Yes, we all suffer from this ugly conditions, and it does have a lot to do with our lifestyle, activity level, quality of nutrition and regular sleep, however, women's physiology is a bit different from men's. Our tissue is designed to be a lot more stretchy and loose, to accommodate the needs of a baby in case of pregnancy. That's why we don't burst when expecting. With regular treatments this can be little by little dissolved and drained away, however, serious lifestyle changes will be required to maintain the improved condition.

This could also play a huge role especially for patients with bumps and lumps, as after chemotherapy and surgery, more often than not, some or all of the lymph nodes in the area have to be taken out to prevent further outbreaks of the disease. This of course causes a build-up of a lymph fluid that has no passage way to drain through, resulting in oedema, a hard swelling in the limb filled with stagnant fluid. With a deeper knowledge of the lymph system, we are able to create a D-tour and navigate the excess lymph through smaller nodes, or the ones that are further away from the injured area. With our help, they can substitute the missing ones pretty effectively, however without continuous regular treatments, the oedema will keep reappearing, as we simply cannot grow new lymph nodes.

I would suggest though to use Lymph drainage in conjunction with Kinesiotaping, that makes the result of the treatment last a bit longer. The tape can be used in a very specific way to navigate the lymph flow in a direction of functional lymph nodes. that makes the process of build-up towards oedema a bit slower.

If you asked me to pick my favourite benefit of a manual lymph drainage, I couldn't tell you. It is all too awesome and the usage is so broad and varied, that it literally has something to offer every one of us!

I hope you have learned something new today, and you will treat yourselves to something lovely, may it be a great jog out in the park or a cosy evening with films and popcorn, just make sure you have a bit of both worlds ;)

Happy New You!

SeasonalPosted by Mayka Wed, December 30, 2015 10:46:01

Another year is over. Can you believe that? It was only like yesterday when we were planning all that awesome stuff we were going to do and achieve in the New Year 2015, and we're sitting down with our yearly planners, counting our blessings already.

Was it a successful year? Or was it at least rich in lessons? Sometimes it is hard to see the bright side of the situation, especially when we are playing the main part, but trust me, those are your future memories, those gems from your past that you will be telling your kids about. Well, let's try to remember that next time things go wrong.

Do you do the New Year's resolutions? What is your success rate? Some of us just have the standard ones that keep being pushed forward from one year to the next, and they kind of get forgotten by the second week of January, and some others have a clear militaristic plan of achievements, and they don't end the year without having it all ticked off. (Respect guys)

As I am neither of these types, I had to come up with a very individual approach. My ego doesn't really like me failing at stuff, but trust me, I love winning, and enjoy success in any shape or form. So from 2008 on, I just came up with a different strategy. Strategy of motivation and full control, without the possibility of failing.

Every year, I just take the last numbers of the year, the next year being 2016, and give myself a task of trying 16 new things. I can tell you it was a lot easier in 2008, but I really wonder how active my 2070 will have to be :D I am really flexible with this, some of the things I just try and decide never to do them again, but at least I know now, and some slowly turn out to be my new habits and help me live a better life.

This way we have done things, been to places, climbed mountains, tried sports, eaten all kinds of things, and our lives are getting richer day by day. As you know, time flies, and more often than not, I find myself mid-September, wondering how am I doing, if I'm hitting the target, and have another look around to see what else could we try this year.

However you approach this delicate time of the year, my wish for you is to love yourself, be kind and patient and don't let things that are supposed to make you happy, stress you out.

Let's have a look how have we done this year so far: (Surprisingly, I ran out of my compulsory 15 in October :) Shall I carry the rest forward into 2016?)

1 Learned the art of Kinesiotaping, that helps us get over aches and pains

2 Done a FIT training in London to help you guys stay FIT :)

3 Made our first Maya's Healing Hands video (Finally)

4 Tried archery for the first time

5 Seen a Burlesque show (very interesting)

6 Learned Indian Head Massage (While meeting some lovely new friends)

7 Started playing squash regularly (Swapped it for tennis in the summer)

8 Got our 3 lovely re-homed terrapins (and they're here to stay)

9 Climbed Ben Nevis in Scotland (3 Peaks have been conquered one by one)

10 Found great business mentors and learned some amazing new habits

11 Done a hot air balloon flight, seen the world as a huge Lego playground

12 Started healing with Rahanni

13 Started a regime of weekly Amatsu treatments

14 Started driving again (Yay, independence)

15 Done a long planned couples massage with my favourite sister

Deep Tissue Massage

Alternative TherapiesPosted by Mayka Tue, September 15, 2015 10:08:28

How deep is your massage?

It is a well known fact that massage is an essential part of a recovery and maintenance of a healthy body in our modern busy lives. It not only relieves the stress and tension and improves healing of strained tissues, but also flushes out the build-up of toxins and waste materials caused by our lifestyle, food choices and daily activity.

How do you choose the right one for you though? Most of us go for a deep tissue massage as a first choice, as we are subconsciously aware of lack of attention towards our body, and we feel the need to compensate by something that sounds really serious.

What is this Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is exactly what it says on the tin. It is a variation of a classic Swedish massage, however most of the moves and techniques that are used in the treatment are shorter, sharper, deeper, and more targeted into exact locations, with most tension and blockages. Every massage needs to begin with smoother longer ''warming up'' strokes, that prepare tense and tired muscles for the ''workout'' part of the massage. Then we can gradually increase the pressure and adjust the technique according to a client's comfort and pain threshold.

Who needs it most?

Deep tissue massage is usually a best choice for people who have monotonous strenuous jobs, regularly take part in physically demanding activities, that are quite muscular, or their body has already adapted to a classic massage. Yes, your muscles get used to all the work you give them.

What does it do for you?

One of the best benefits you get from a regular massage is a strong muscular built, which can support you in events of unexpected strain or accident, better circulation and lymph flow, which prevents unnecessary illness and infections, and overall improvement of immunity and energy levels.

Massage can also be effectively used for immediate short term results, like relaxation, alleviation of anxiety and depression, temporary relief from sleeping disorders, but also mobilisation of blockages and spasms that have formed in the past, and are causing pain and restricting mobility.

How do the knots build up?

We can go a long time without dealing with these minor issues, however, there is a real danger here. A blockage caused by minor injury, or even just sleeping funny can result in a massive problem in the future. I like to compare this to a car crash in the tunnel. When the blockage appears at first, it might be really insignificant. With nutrients and minerals constantly streaming in though, there is no passageway for metabolites to leave the body. At first, the smaller particles with fluid do get through, but in time the build-up of the larger ones is almost palpable, and slowly but surely, you have to notice tension and discomfort around your muscles.

What happens to the knots that are not dealt with?

At this stage, the massaged muscles feel pretty crackly, the build-up of the waste materials can be grainy at first, and with time grow all the way to the size of a walnut. This is when your muscles are deprived of nutrition and oxygen, as more and more passageways are getting blocked up, and the whole groups of muscles are getting tense and rigid.

This can be still dealt with, even though the treatments get increasingly painful with the amounts of waste to be removed. If you still choose to ignore the situation, you are risking a real threat of calcification, as some of the minerals trapped in the stagnant area can turn the lump into a bone-like substance, that might severely restrict mobility, and might later result in surgery.

How to keep yourself in a good shape?

Regular massage treatments do prevent these extreme situations, and aid your overall health and performance, so there is really no reason to wait until things get out of control. If there is a lot of work to be done, to get you back in shape, when you are already dealing with a particular issue, you might need to commit to at least 5 or 6 weekly sessions. However, if you are still in a good shape, and want to keep yourself in a peak condition, a fortnightly or a monthly treatment is all you need. It is of course very individual, depending on the level of your fitness the character of work that you do and generally your daily habits.

Can you help yourself?

There are many ways you can aid the recovery of your muscles. Alongside regular treatments and healthy lifestyle, you can use Aloe Vera based Heat Lotion that penetrates deep into the tissue and helps bring the warming agents deep into the muscles, rather than just sit on the skin and irritate you, and MSM Gel that works well as a local pain killer and is formulated with MSM which is organic Sulphur naturally occurring in bones and cartilage. Please visit the Store for more great sports products that will help you improve your fitness levels and reach your goals.

To book your session, or a free consultation, please browse through Maya's Healing Hands website and give us a call, message or email, or simply fill out a quick contact form and we will get back to you within a few hours!

Have a healthy day, and do something nice for yourself ;)

Sciatica, causes and cures

Alternative TherapiesPosted by Mayka Fri, July 03, 2015 08:45:07
Is sciatica ruining your life? Kinesiotaping can help

Most of us know at least one or more people complaining of a strange lower back-leg chronic pain. Sciatica is generally a term that comprises all of those pains that are ''shooting'' from your spine, into your lower back, buttocks, thigh, and in some cases, all the way to the knee, ankle or foot.

What causes Sciatica?

It is a condition mostly caused by a disc bulging out from between the vertebrae, pressing onto the sciatic nerve causing a constant excruciating pain. The disc is a little bouncy cushion between our vertebrae, that keeps our spine bendy and flexible, and at the same time it helps us soften the impact of bouncing and heavy lifting. It is soft gelatine encapsulated in a strong layer of cartilage. If this is being overstrained for a long time, the cartilage weakens and allows the liquid to leak out and press onto the nerve, causing the pain.

Why do some people suffer from Sciatica and others don’t?

The answer to this lies in the lifestyle you lead. Our body has been designed to handle quite a lot, for quite a long time too, but nowadays, more and more people tend to push it to the limit. We choose a sedentary lifestyle with not enough exercise and strengthening activity, or on the other hand, do long hours at monotonous, physically demanding jobs that only strain certain parts of our body (and spine). Now we're slowly starting to see how this weakened area on our disc has appeared from out of nowhere.

The site of the pain isn't always where you think it is

This pain is being caused in a place that is distant from a place where it projects itself and that is why so many times it takes a while to identify the problem. Regular treatments and release techniques offer very little relief, if any. The western medicinal choices for treatment of Sciatica include a whole spectrum of pain relief ranging from over the counter Ibuprofen, through Morphine to Epidural steroid injections. Most times the constant unbearable pain results in surgery, that removes the bulging bit of the disc, which bears a risk of causing even more irritation or permanent damage to the Sciatic nerve.

There are no other mainstream remedies, other than increasing the dosage of painkillers, so most of the sufferers are left on their own in the dark. There are ways to alleviate the pain temporarily by lying down flat on the floor (or other hard surface), grab onto wall bars and hang for a while, and try to stay active. I know this is a bit of a ''catch 22'', as you are not going to run a marathon with pain that's just about killing you, but keeping your back muscles strong is crucial to support your spine that is struggling.

New techniques are now available to alleviate pain relief while you build up your core strength

Kinesiotaping is a brilliant technique which is being applied to allow you a little break from the pain, while you take a look at correcting your posture and start building up muscle and strengthen your core. It is a technique developed in Japan in early 70's, and it is recognised to be effective enough to be banned in the Olympics as a doping. Special way of application of the semi-textile tape does alleviate the pressure in the injured area, which causes almost instant relief from pain.

I have had great results with many of my clients, who say it helped them alleviate pain enough to get into sports routine and build up more strength to keep the pain manageable in the next weeks and months to come. One client even told me that this treatment has given him his first pain-free week in a decade. He then came back a few weeks later to get taped for the Rugby final between England and Ireland, because he can't handle Sciatica and a hangover at the same time !!

Of course, while you're building yourself up and correcting your habits and routines, you might need a bit of help from mother nature:

The Forever Freedom drinking gel is an Aloe Vera based supplement with Glucosamine and Chondroitine, that are widely used to help with rebuilding lost or depleted cartilage

MSM gel is a topical ointment that assists with supplying the organic Sulphur that is naturally in bones and joints, and also serves as a brilliant local painkiller

…and of course, we couldn't go without a Heat Lotion, that offers a deep heat relief directly in the area of tension and discomfort, rather than just sitting on the skin and irritating it

Where can I get Kinesiotaping?

If you are interested in the Taping, please do ask for more details, as it improves blood circulation, aids natural body's lymph-drainage and helps heal traumatised tissue faster. There are hundreds of ways taping can help manage and improve an array of problems and pains, ranging from muscle support and relaxation, joint relief and realignment, wounds and bruises healing, gynaecological problems, support in pregnancy, Bunyan and many others.

The taping session would normally last between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the area that needs to be treated and the massage and mobilisation techniques necessary to assess the correct method of tape usage.


You can BOOK YOUR SESSION NOW. Call me on 07964 722307 or write to me at info@mayka.co.uk

If you want some advice with your particular problem, don’t hesitate to ask.

You also need to be aware that the tape can be worn up to a week, so if you are planning to show a bit of skin at the party, please ask for nude coloured tape.

Sneezy season!

SeasonalPosted by Mayka Mon, June 15, 2015 20:30:41
Summer is here and so for some, the dreaded Hay Fever

As the temperature rises, more and more people all over the world are dreading this beautiful season. Hay fever is a real mood killer when it comes to those warm BBQ nights.

If you're not a sufferer, you probably don't really know what the fuss is all about.

So what exactly is Hay Fever? "Pollen is the name given to the fine powder that is produced by plants, trees and flowers to fertilise other plants, trees or flowers of the same species"Patient Info ". "Pollen contains proteins that can cause the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses (small air filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead) to become swollen, irritated and inflamed"NHS UK.

Grass pollen is the most common cause of Hay Fever from spring to early summer however many people are also affected by tree and weed pollen at different times of the year. Alas for the unlucky ones, Hay Fever can be a problem almost all year round, and it can be very uncomfortable and debilitating.It is your body's self defence against the enemy. It's a shame that sometimes our good old body gets confused and mistakes something really harmless for a deadly threat, and starts the whole military operation.

What are the symptoms and why do they occur?

Hay Fever is often mistaken for a cold because the symptoms are very similar, that of having a runny, stuffy and blocked nose, sneezing, itching, and sore eyes. Symptoms occur, because for some, their immune system reacts to the pollen and the cells on the lining of the nose and eyes release histamine when they come into contact with the pollen. It's this histamine that causes inflammation of the nose and the onslaught of the Hay Fever, also known as allergic rhinitis.

For some, Hay Fever can be an extremely debilitating or serious condition, one which can affect your ability to carry out routine day to day tasks. I was an unlucky kid stuck with this condition since I was about 2 years old. I can remember often lying on the park bench with razor-sharp pain in my eyes, swollen and blood shot, struggling to breath, sneezing so much that my tummy hurt. I was in tearful agony. I kind of thought that's the way the life is from the spring time on, I never left the house without my antihistamines, which I have to say, make you really drowsy and tired.

What can we use to treat Hay Fever?

There are conventional remedies such as the ones listed below:

· Antihistamine tablets are used to reduce histamine production

· Nasal sprays are used to reduce the inflammation

· Saline (Salt Water) to wash the pollen out from the nostrils

· Antihistamine eye drops ease eye flare-ups

· Steroid treatment is usually recommended for short term use in more severe cases i.e. when sitting exams

· … immunotherapy injections are used to desensitise the sufferer to the pollen and reduce the severity of the symptoms

Unfortunately some treatments come with unwanted side effects, such as feeling drowsy and tired as I mentioned before. Others like the injections, where I witnessed my dad go through the procedure and have his ''season'' extended from a few months to about twice as long. I quickly rejected this idea as an option myself

Fortunately, Alternative, Natural and Healthier Remedies for Hay Fever are also available if you know where to find them. I met someone who looked at my teary swollen face and said he felt my pain, as he used to suffer from hay fever for decades. ''Used to'' is a funny term to be used with allergies, as once you get them, you have them for life. He shared his secret, and I said I would give it a try. What is there to lose anyway, Right? He recommended I try… and 'try' being the operative word, the Aloe Berry Nectar with the Bee Pollen for an enjoyable sneeze-free life.

So try I did ! My life has been transformed in the last few years. I am proud to say this is my second summer of the new life, and people close to me are turning to this method now, as it is so much healthier, and actually gives you loads of energy in comparison to the old drowsy stuff.

How it works is a mystery because it’s a closely guarded secret but the famous Aloe Vera plant is used in the treatment of many ailments.

The Berry Nectar is a pure stabilised active Aloe Vera gel, reinforced with apple and cranberry extracts which offers a great amount of vitamin C, essential for people suffering from all kinds of respiratory challenges. Sweetened with natural fruit sugar, it's just right for both adults and children alike.

The Bee Pollen is literally the 'vaccination' without the needle and the side effects. It's called the Bee Pollen because when the bees gather the pollen and bring it back to hives, the Forever team who make this wonderful product, collect the bee pollen in specially designed steel collectors to turn it into this all natural, preservative free and readily digestible substance which slowly builds up inside your body and triggers a reaction to desensitize you against the allergens attacking it, and boost your energy.

To use,

· Drink the Aloe Berry Nectar(about 50-60 ml) every morning, on an empty stomach, before you have your lemon water, tea or coffee, and breakfast, and then you're ready to get on with your day

· With the Bee pollen though, you need to go slow from the beginning. Remember, it's the stuff that your body is scared of. Have a 1/4 of a pill one day, 12 hours later have a 1/3, see how you go. If you get the sneezes or throat itch, you've over done it a bit, go back to a smaller dose. You should slowly build up to tolerate 2 pills at a time, then you can have a choice of taking one or two when you feel your eyes itching or you kind of know you're about to get the sneezes.

All in all, these two work in a great synergy. The Aloe boosts your immunity, increasing the absorption of everything you take in, and the pollen helps your body accept the foreign substances that were causing havoc before.

Try them
I've included the links above to the web store if you want to 'try' these products yourself –Health Forums and websites recommend you start treatment at least 2 weeks before the pollen season starts to bite, but it's never too late to start as Hay Fever is not a nice thing to have, believe me, I used to live with it, but not any more !!

Meanwhile, there are other things you can do to help you reduce the symptoms, while you're building up your body's immunity to the pollen:

· Check the pollen forecast on the news and weather channels. Stay indoors on high pollen days whenever possible

· Drink plenty of water. Water dilutes the histamine in your body

· Shower often on high pollen days to keep your hair clean of all the pollen particles, and keep your hair tied back to prevent it flying into your face and making things worse

· Avoid flowers or mowing the lawns

· Wraparound sunglasses are also highly recommended by health forums

· Change outdoor clothes and avoid drying clothes outside

· Keep car windows closed when driving

So get your summer stocked-up with the Aloe Berry Nectar and the Bee Pollen, and definitely, make sure you let me know how you get on.

I love hearing good news :-)

If you don't try it, you'll never know what difference these could make to your life!

How do you feel?

What's OnPosted by Mayka Tue, June 02, 2015 12:51:56

Hello there beautiful people!

I got an interesting question recently. ''Haven’t you put on a bit of weight since I’ve seen you last time (almost 5 years ago)?'' Obviously at the time I went into automatic self-defence mode, and it made me look into the mirror once or twice. And then it hit me!

Is this what we need young girls to feel like? I am a grown up woman, and I have done a whole lot of personal re-development in last few years. I would say I am pretty happy with who I am now, and where I am heading. I do work that I absolutely love, I get at least 7 hours of good sleep every night, I eat regularly, and I choose the best of what my body needs. I do have a walk every day, I play squash or tennis 4 times a week, with people who like me for who I am.

My BMI and weight are still in the lower bit of HEALTHY levels, but most of the days I do manage to hit the amount of calories to keep my body happy and fully functional. I get on with loads of work, and I take on any new challenge I find interesting and fun.

Would I swap with my 24 year old me? Let me tell you that I would NEVER! This poor kid had just started exploring her own qualities and values, after years of being trapped in soul destroying job, constantly punishing her body for not measuring up to other people’s expectations, not even realizing, how many dreams and desires she still had.

No, I would never want to be seriously underweight again. And I wouldn’t want to be 18, and I wouldn’t want to be getting up in the middle of the night again, to go to work I don’t enjoy anymore. And no, I wouldn’t want to have my friends that left me when I needed them.

And I honestly don’t think I should want any of those things. There is no way to send a grown-up back to nursery, just because they were a lot cuter back then, and when we outgrow our former self, we should feel free to enjoy who we became, without having to find excuse.

So what I would say to the young, the old, the pregnant, the retired and all the other girls don’t let anyone destroy your self-love. Most people’s reality is constantly being distorted by ads, magazines, Barbie dolls and half naked music videos, so we can’t blame them for not recognizing a real human body when they see one.

I will be re-launching my old good Facebook group ''https://www.facebook.com/groups/supportinglove/'', and I would love you all to join in and have lots of fun. We will just get together and support each other in what we like to do. We will play loads of games, do sports together, organize days out, and explore stuff we haven’t tried yet. So join in and let’s keep all our changes positive ;)
