Stillpoint’s Sacred Solstice Greeting
As today marks the winter solstice, the day with the shortest daylight hours and the longest night of the year, we want to take this time, this sacred time, days that can become some busy with holiday preparations, to just be with this special day and this solstice, honoring the ever changing cycles of life and the seasons.
Become NCBTMB certified instructors...
As many of you can imagine, there is much happening here at Stillpoint. We very much enjoyed teaching our first Aromatherapy workshop in October and have decided to become NCBTMB certified instructors, which means we will be able to offer the course for 25 credits for anyone needing credits to fulfill their NCBTMB certifications. Most of you are aware of our passion for essential oils and their incredible healing abilities, and so we are working on some exciting new endeavors. Stay tuned to our future newsletters, as we get ready to fly in 2010!
International Certification in Aromatherapy

NEW! Stillpoint Stone and Hand Massage
We are unveiling our newest addition to our menu of services. We are calling it, Stillpoint Stone and Hand Massage. Many people enjoy hot stones as we offer in our La Stone Session, but do not want to give up the therapeutic muscular work during our Integrative Massage. In our new Stillpoint Stone and Hand Massage, you will receive the multiple benefits that hot stones offer and also have those targeted areas, such as the neck, shoulders and back receive the hands on work that they so often need.
Essential Oil Spotlight: Fir Balsam
Our essential oil that we are highlighting this month Fir, Balsam (abies siberica) She is a strong antimicrobial agent for colds and the flu. She is drying for mucous, an excellent decongestant and mucolytic, and calming for a spastic cough. Also an anti-rheumatic to prevent and/or relieve rheumatic pain and swelling. Great anti-inflammatory action and is also analgesic. Stimulating for the respiratory system, adrenal glands and circulatory system. Mentally she can be used to bring alertness to the mind, applied topically to the adrenal areas of the body in she will help with general fatigue. Memories of Christmas Time and winter.
We are wishing you the very best holiday season and the most abundant 2010!
“Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter.
Who would think that those branches would turn green again
and blossom, but we hope it, we know it.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
