Éléonore's Ayurvedic Tip

Panchakarma Experience in India

For the last 5 years, I’ve been hearing about panchakarma, a word that remained quite vague for me. An Ayurvedic spa, a deep detox? Different experiences and readings gave me a better idea, but it still wasn’t completely clear.

I kept it in mind knowing that one day, I would be ready for it, and that I would do it in India. That time came this winter..."

Practical Uses For:

Lemon Verbena Essential Oil
(Aloysia triphylla)

The long winter brings the same usual inconveniences. What's better when we are suffering from asthenia, intellectual and nervous fatigue, temporary depression or sadness, and dark thoughts than an essence with the potential to bring you exceptional serenity?

The actions of Lemon Verbena (Aloysia triphylla) on the psycho-emotional level might be very beneficial for you! Keep this wonderful essential oil handy and use it to pamper yourself to restore your spirit while toning your nervous system.

Because it is a bit pricey, it is best used in dry inhalation (one or two drops on a handkerchief or scarf) or diluted in a neutral oil and applied on the skin (a skin test is always recommended).

A State of Mind

You ever have one of those bad weeks? When the world outside looks and feels like one big grey cloud? I just had one of those weeks! As I laid in bed, I had all these scenarios that would play out in my head. I was plotting how to throttle certain people and how to burn some of their ugly looking shoes. Yes! You know who you are!

After feeling a little better, I begrudgingly rolled out of bed and went to work. It was one bad day after another, and just when I think I have lost all trust in humanity and everyone is one big smelly toe sock, someone comes up to me and gives me a hug!

The world is right again! Hugs get me every time!

-Sukha Wong
Director of Lotus Palm

Common Core Courses

Starting September 2016

Did you complete your Thai Yoga Massage training at Lotus Palm and are a member of the RMQ (Regroupement des Massothérapeutes du Québec)?

The following message is important and addressed to you:

Since its inception, Lotus Palm has been constantly advancing and we have been preparing for a long time to meet the growing demands of massage therapy associations. In addition, we are actively working to have Thai Yoga Massage acknowledged as a basic technique and have our training recognized by major associations. Fortunately for everyone, this is coming very soon!

Consequently, we need to update our program and Lotus Palm graduates practicing massage therapy in the province of Quebec and members of the RMQ will be required to take Common Core Courses.

Did you know...

There are approximately 5 million touch receptors in our skin, and about 3,000 in each finger tip?
Touch receptors are the nerve cells that tell your brain about tactile sensations. There are several types but they can be divided into two groups: mechanoreceptors that tell you about sensations of pushing, pulling or movement and thermoreceptors that tell you about sensations of temperature.

Herbal Compress Massage 1

March 18-20 in Montreal

By using techniques of patting, gliding, rolling and pounding, essential oils are released from the heated compresses penetrating and absorbing deeply to relax and detoxify the body. This can benefit those with conditions such as inflamed joints, arthritis, fibromyalgia, soft tissue injuries, and has profound effects on the body.

After this hands-on 3-day intensive workshop, students will leave with a comprehensive knowledge of Thai herbal compress bundle making and take home their personalized herbal compresses.

At the Heart of Lotus Palm

Ramin Salimi

"My name is Ramin, meaning "one who calms" in Persian. I used to think that I had inherited the quality of the name in reverse. That I was the one in search of tranquility."
