Treatment Programs for the holiday season
By Jenny Ellis, Health Practitioner
When it comes to Christmas Holidays the tendency to over-indulge and generally let ourselves go, is very common. The trouble is, we end up needing to recoup from this, rather than using the opportunity to deeply rest, restore ourselves, recharge our batteries and be feeling energised and vital for the year ahead.
The purpose of a treatment program is to offer a re-set. When we spend a great deal of time in a certain momentum, it takes a more concentrated and sustained focus to put a halt to it, and re-establish new patterns that are sustaining and sustainable.
A program provides a purpose and hence is specific for a series of sessions, which brings greater awareness and understanding of what has been at play for us, as well as why, and what it may take to turn it around.
Examples of programs include:
- Turning around exhaustion
- Immune boosting
- Getting a handle on anxiety
- Setting new sleep rhythms
- Reconnecting and establishing new foundations
Practitioners all over the world can offer programs to support you to rest, recharge, rejuvenate and restore over the holiday season.
Speak with your local practitioner about a Treatment Program, or you can visit our website to find a practitioner in your local area.
If you need more support with this please email Esoteric Women's Health.

Women in Livingness Workshop 17th February 2019
We are delighted to announce our next Women in Livingness workshop, to be held on Sunday 17 February 2019 in Brisbane, Australia - the workshop will be webcast around the world for all those that cannot attend in person.
The workshop will be presented by Esoteric Women's Health founder Natalie Benhayon. Women in Livingness workshops are an open forum that offer the space to explore the current issues that are impacting women's health and well-being, and to re-establish a way of living that supports the development of true well-being.
Well-being for Women Global
Well-being for Women are regular presentations held throughout the world that can support us to restore a level of vitality, well-being and zest for life that many of us struggle to feel amidst the demands, pressures and expectations of daily life.
"I keep coming back because of the connection to the women who attend, their wisdom and care and also the way that I feel post workshop or event. I feel calmer, more in control of my life and its challenges and also more connected to myself." ~ Megan, 35
Dealing with the "Silly Season"
"As we approach the Christmas holiday season, will it be the “Silly Season,” where we all eat too much, drink too much, and don’t cope well with family situations – or will we choose to care for ourselves, look after our bodies and our well-being, and enjoy and appreciate those around us to the best of our ability."
Work Life Balance for Women – does it really exist?
How are women living in the world today – is it a juggle of scheduling, running errands, working, rushing, being anxious or in overwhelm, frustration and exhaustion that eventually leads us to be busy and sick, as the rising levels of illness and disease in women indicates?
Women, excessive tiredness and Christmas stress
Will you be starting the new year feeling more weary than cheery? Kate Robson explores why women do this to themselves over the Christmas period and explores how we could make it different this year.
Self-care – the gift of you
The quality of true caring insists that you are important, that you are worth caring for. Is there a much deeper level of self-care that we could be offering ourselves?
Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy is a gentle hands on physical and energetic bodywork modality. It is a very simple and yet powerfully effective treatment in which the practitioner is working directly with the energy flowing through the body's connective tissue system in order to support and restore the natural balance of the body.
Esoteric Yoga offers the opportunity to truly stop, and come back to you and the quality of energy in your body. Each class helps us to realise that we can choose to bring a harmonious quality into our everyday movements, and that the quality we bring to our movements determines how we feel and the level of well-being we experience.
Classes can be done online at a time that suits you, also offered are group classes, private sessions, and classes for the workplace.
Chakra-puncture is a gentle and complementary healing therapy that consists of needles applied very lightly to the skin in specific patterns on the body that serve the purpose of restoring energetic harmonious balance and order. Many clients have reported feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, more at ease and less anxious after chakra-puncture.
GENTLE BREATH MEDITATION
Are you sensitive to being affected by what is going on around you? Do you feel anxiety or agitation in your body? The Gentle Breath Meditation is a simple and very powerful technique to support you.
This Gentle Breath Meditation begins with dropping your head toward your heart, focusing and allowing the senses to recognise that you are one with your body through the gentle in-breath, then developing expansiveness and gentleness in your body with the out-breath.
Listen to a recording of the Gentle Breath Meditation.
