For women who have trouble slowing down in a masculine-led world,
Who suffer from strong period pain, PMS or illnesses of the reproductive organs,
Who want to get to know their natural cycles after long periods on the pill,
Or want to learn how to reap the benefits of their cycles’ times of greater psychic intuitions, healing integration of past hurts and how to work with their bodies natural sexual/sensual cycles.
If you, like many women, have a tumultuous relationship with your menstruation; Welcome to another way.
You know how it is; the emotional roller coaster, the PMT, the messiness, aches and pain, your suffering relationships. Sometimes it can feel like your moon-time Completely takes over your world and destroys everything built up before it. It’s understandable that we use pain medication, hormone balancing pills, coffee to boost our energy and copious amounts of chocolate or wine to calm us down.
The thing is, many of these approaches repress, hide or deny the body’s natural rhythms and needs. In effect we tell the body to be quiet then get upset when its shouts louder in the form of polyps, extreme emotions, pain and cysts.
Harmonising the Feminine gives you the tools to work with rather than against yourself. It helps you gracefully tune-in to your body and harmonise with your rhythms, so that you can reap the Benefits of your moon-time, rather than fight against them. When we do this we discover the incredible resources in your woman’s body that make you (at specific times of the month) confident, receptive, sensual, creative and more psychic, sexually powerful and fiercely protective, And less emotionally volatile, less physically uncomfortable, more surrendered and more empowered.
Sounds cool huh?!
Most of us grew up in masculine environments or had “masculine” mums who emphasised strength and pushing through, “toughening up”. Femininity was often associated with “weak”, vulnerable and possibly even “crazy”. In pushing away our natural hormonal rhythms, we miss out on a profound connection to our mysterious, feeling based selves, to a source of whole body resetting, spiritual connection and our own beautiful female bodies.
So How can this Program Help? This Program will:
√ Help you to listen to your body and its needs, rather than pushing through and creating stress for your body
√ Reduce headaches, pain and moodiness
√ Create more pleasure hormones when your body is naturally lower in estrogen
√ Give you space to listen to what your body is communicating if it is manifesting disease or disharmony around your reproductive system
√ Deepen your relationship with your feminine self and the cycles of the moon when you bleed
√ Create a pattern for your body to instinctively go inwards as it comes up to your moon time, reducing stress on the body and mind
√ Give you a space where you don’t have to engage, be social, be considerate of others’ needs or wants, but simply receive for yourself. Hallelujah!!

What is Moon Massage?
Moon massage is a deep and sensitively attuned massage given either in the week before or during a woman’s’ menstruation (or “moon”) time. Everything is set up to invite deep relaxation and letting go, from warm towels, oil and heat bags, to flowing music, safe sacred space and subtle essential oils designed to relax and harmonise.
How does it work?
Moon Massage works to slow you down and connect you to your body wisdom because it bypasses the rational mind. We access that wisdom through the senses, using safe and caring touch, pleasant smells and sounds and beauty. We make sure the body feels totally held and safe, and in that way, allow your precious body to unwind, to integrate, to heal and to be deeply nourished.
When we slow down our pace of life and allow our bodies to rest and to be “yin”, we function better, our moods are more balanced and we have more full and vibrant energy for the active times.
