How to End the Fight With Your Belly

Have you ever listened to the way you talk about your belly? When you catch a glimpse I bet it’s not often kind.   In any group of friends you’ll hear apologies for being: “Too fat” “Too wobbly” “Too greedy” The sort of language you would never use to your best friend and yet we routinely treat our bellies as the enemy.

It's like being pregnant and giving birth to yourself, except it ...

A treatment involving paraffin wax at the wonderful Thermae Spa in Bath (where I also got to watch the sun go down from a ravishingly azure sky) and a tip from Liz Koch at her psoas workshop about how to sooth particularly sensitive nervous systems. Highly Sensitive People I have always worked ...
