shakti-mat

The Shakti Acupressure Mat
Does your Mum suffer from chronic muscle tension or pain?
Does your Mum practise meditation?
Does your Mum have a job with high levels of stress?

This may well be a life changing gift.  It can positively impact on sleep, headaches, back pain, muscle tension, arthritis, sciatica, poor circulation stiff joints and stress.

Acupressure is a natural and effective therapy similar to modern massage, reflexology and acupuncture. It stimulates pressure points to encourage healing in the body.
.

After 2o minutes lying on a shakti mat deep relaxation is achieved while your whole body receives a therapeutic treatment.

How does it feel when you lie on a shakti mat? Most people feel a little discomfort when they first lie down, but is worth staying put, as within a few minutes the stimulation triggers your body to respond. First, a rush of circulation to the area radiates warmth through the muscles encouraging healing and flushing out toxins. Next the body releases endorphins – our own natural and effective pain relief. The endorphins relax the muscles and provide a profound sense of calm. After a 20 minute session the feeling is entirely different and you will feel pain free, relaxed and at ease lying on the shakti mat. Within the first week of use you may benefit from better sleep, reduced muscle tension, better circulation and a reduction in stress.

The effectiveness of The Shakti Mat is supported by medical experts, clinical research and trusted by world-class athletes.

Each mat is made by hand in a charity workshop in Varanasi, India. The women make them with good pay, good hours, meals, holiday pay and a safe and happy work environment. They are also provided free healthcare for themselves and their families.

There are three options to choose from light, original and advanced:

shakti_mat-blue-advancedshakti_mat-orange
Kombucha-Crock

Ceramic Kombucha Fermenting Jars

Is your Mum a bit of a kombucha connoisseur? These hand made ceramic fermenting crocks for kombucha-making sit aesthetically on a bench. We have several natural colour glaze options and two sizes available. We also have lots of fab’ books on cultured foods and kombucha culture starter kits.

Crystal Lovers – Have You Discovered Shungite Yet? Now in Stock at Wise Cicada

March 21st, 2017 Posted by Great Gift Ideas @ Wise Cicada, The Latest & Greatest No Comment yet

shungite

Have you heard of an antioxidant called fullerene? Neither had we, until we recently added the mineral Shungite to our crystal cabinet selection. The scientific community discovered fullerenes in 1985, but long before that, this stone (containing fullerenes) was well known in Russia. Tradition states that you can add this special, carbon rich, stone to your water to purify it whilst also receiving a dose of antioxidants ……. care of the Earth’s mineral heritage.

Shungite is unique to Karelia in Russia, where the only deposit of this special rock is found. The stone received its name from the village of Shunga where it was first discovered. Shungite can be divided into three types depending on the content of carbon in it. Type III is usually called regular shungite stone and contains 30 to 50 % carbon, type II shungite contains 50 to 90 %. Shungite with a carbon content of more than 90 % has a silvery surface and is called elite shungite.

Regarded as a special healing stone by many, shungite is famed for its water purification uses, physical and spiritual healing potential, and help protecting against electro-magnetic frequency (EMF) the radiation emitted from modern gadgets.

Peter the Great, a shungite fan, set up Russia’s first spa in Karelia to utilise the water purifying properties of the stone. He also used it to help provide purified water to the Russian army, as it is claimed to offer anti-bacterial properties.

As we’ve suggested, the unique structure of shungite consists of fullerenes, a crystalline modification of carbon. Fullerenes are considered to be a powerful antioxidant, protecting human cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

The spherical fullerene molecules contained in shungite carbon also make it useful in the cosmetic and medicine industries.

It is suggested that shungite may: help reduce the effects of EMF radiation, neutralizing geopathic stress and tension: help activate healing properties in the human body and promote physical and spiritual healing to a person using it.
