What’s The Magic
You are the magic.
All that you are, all that you need, all that you desire to become is housed within that amazing thing called your body. Yet all of us spend too much time worrying and overthinking how to FIX our bodies, or make them more perfect so that we fit in. Giving away so much of our energy to an ideal that is actually keeping us from discovering, being and having the life that we are here to live.
Acknowledge what you really desire, for your body, for your health, for your relationships, for your heart and emotions, for your purpose in this life and explore all that it means to be truly YOU. To embody that with confidence, love, compassion and gentleness, is sometimes a gradual unpicking of the tangled mess and sometimes it is a sudden realisation that brings freedom.
Coming home to your Body Magic is knowing the strength and solutions from within you to allow you to move towards your dream life.
The body is constantly reflecting all we have been, all that we are and highlighting who we are becoming.
The thing you think is the thing, NEVER IS.
Let's get to the bottom of what is really going on in your body, give you ways to move past it and set you on a new path to accessing all the wisdom your body is desperately wanting you to hear.
Like a treasure map to your soul, your body holds so much information and tells so many stories about what is really going on at a deeper level.
The magic of massage is that it creates an awareness and connection with the body that only touch can.
During this 90+ minute full body experience you are required to do nothing but relax. To allow your body to connect with your mind, your mood and your life experiences - receiving whatever healing and restoration that you need.
Ruth works intuitively as she massages creating a space for your body to reveal what it really requires to be most efficient and calm.
Work one to one with Ruth over 12 weeks as you discover exactly what is going on with your body and why it is so.
You'll playfully, creatively and magically discover that you are far more than your beliefs, your 'bad' habits and your old patterns - as you experience the change YOU WANT in just 3 months.
If you're done with feeling stuck, discontent, and fed up with your body and/or your life then this is for you.
The Body Witch
When I was younger I had a dream - I wanted to be a ballet dancer. I started when I was 4 or 5 and I absolutely loved it. Ballet was fun, I was really good, I had the co-ordination, the rhythm, the timing, the flexibility and could do everything the teacher said.
However, as I progressed with ballet, I overheard a conversation between my teacher and my mother - "Ruth is fat and you need to put her on a diet" was the basis of that conversation and it planted a seed of a very deep story inside me. I began to embody the story that 'Being good at something is not enough if you don't look the part.'
At aged 11, I longed to audition for the royal ballet school but I pulled away from my dream because I didn't believe I had the look for it. I turned my back on dance and paid more attention to sports. That allowed me to push my body, experience the joy of moving and feel accepted as long as I could achieve competitive results. It was only when I came to England that I fell into the fitness world of gyms and classes. I wanted to be strong, capable and prove that I could do anything physical. But really, I was fighting against that old story of not being enough because of the way I looked.
This story still informs the work I do today. But in a different way than when I was younger.
I see so many women pushing to look a certain way to gain acceptance but in doing so they begin to dissociate and disconnect from the beauty that their own body holds. I find bodies fascinating and truly believe that the beauty in every single body is exponential, but so many people have limited themselves due to the story they hold.
Working with Ruth was so unique I find it difficult to put into words...
She has some kind of magic superpower that focusses right in on what makes you, you! I uncovered so many things that I now use to help me if I am feeling stuck / uninspired / stressed - or need to celebrate my successes.
She is a remarkable coach, who doesn't do goal based coaching - and the change is all the more powerful for it.
Ruth taught me how to tap into my own excitement, energy, creativity and passion. She’s compassionate, challenging, energetic, insightful - and most of all FUN!
The creative and playful techniques she uses are fun, but they got me to think at a deeper level about my life, who I am and what ‘brings me alive’. I now have a much deeper understanding of how to get the best out of just being me! Loved, loved, loved working with her.
Throughout my 20 years in the fitness industry I learned a lot of things...but mostly I learnt this:
Everyone's body is unique, but everybody seems to be striving to have someone else's body because they are discontent with their own. We are all glorifying a media perception of beauty and perfection to the detriment of our own mental health.
The freedom comes in discovering the "paradox of becoming," which is that once the acceptance is there, the aesthetic beauty follows.
What if, we could all embrace the uniqueness of our bodies and intrinsically know what is best for us at any given time. Many people have stopped chasing their dream because they believe they don't look the part. When self belief and body confidence are at a low ebb people lose trust in their own body.
Delving into the story that lies within ones own body, and getting to know the true heart and soul can be frightening and threatening to everything that someone may have built in their life. Which is why when working on transformation with my clients, it is done in a playful and magical way..
I want you to know that your body is amazing, it is beautiful as it is and once you too, can see that, the possibilities for your life are endless.
What if, we have the answers already to all of our ailments because we created them, therefore we too, can heal them.
What if, what you think is the thing, isn't really the thing at all... and there is so much more health, vitality, joy and energy available to you.
