Getting married is one of the happiest times of your life, yet can be one of the most stressful periods too. There is a lot of planning that goes in to a wedding and it can be a long drawn out process because things have to be booked far in advance whereas some things can’t be done until a few weeks before.
Whilst most of the decisions are made equally it is often the bride that organizes and worries far more than the groom. Worrying about the weather, will the dress be ready on time, (and will it fit?), will the bridesmaids behave? The bride’s appearance is often more significant than that of the Grooms’ and the pressure of finding that ‘perfect’ dress, how to wear your hair, how to apply your make-up can cause unnecessary stress.
It’s often not until the wedding day is actually just round the corner that the stress manifests itself, often in the form of a minor illness or a streaming cold which in turn leads to more anxiety! You now worry that you will be poorly on the day of the wedding.
Often after the wedding, stress can cause an anticlimax feeling and leave you feeling quite low and confused because you should be on top of the world!
Part of the whole process of planning an event should be to ensure that you are full of energy and vitality and this should not be left to chance. A regular massage during the final 3 months before the wedding will boost your immune system, cleanse your system of impurities, give your body time to rest and relax and encourage your brain to slow down.
Your therapist should be able to select the correct essential oils for you and blend a unique mixture that will enhance your massage and encourage your whole body to be balanced and stress free. It’s the only time when you do nothing… just turn up, and lie on the couch…. It’s your job to relax and let go… knowing that when you get up and carry on with those lists you will be firing on all cylinders.
All major players should be included so that everyone is fit and well on the day. Pick somewhere local to your home so that you can easily attend and book dates in advance so that you are not trying to squeeze it into a busy diary.

In 2010 Carolynn undertook an Advanced Sugaring course with the Carlton Institute and now offers a sugar sweet Hair Removal Service. Unlike waxing sugar does not stick to the skin and is therefore less painful and less harsh on the skin. Clients are amazed at the smoothness achieved and the length of time needed between treatments. Facial and body hair is removed with little fuss, with great results each time.
