Mindful eating


Scientifically proven Mindful Eating skills can help us to stop emotional eating, binge eating and assist with weight loss. 

With Mindfulness, we can become more compassionate towards ourselves and feel more positive about our body no matter what the scale says.


Fundamentally, mindful eating involves:
  • eating slowly and without distraction
  • listening to physical hunger cues and eating only until you’re full
  • distinguishing between true hunger and non-hunger triggers for eating
  • engaging your senses by noticing colors, smells, sounds, textures, and flavors
  • learning to cope with guilt and anxiety about food
  • eating to maintain overall health and well-being
  • noticing the effects food has on your feelings and figure
  • appreciating your food

Excessive sugar intake NOT GOOD

Excessive sugar consumption has links to several harmful health conditions, including:

  • obesity and metabolic syndrome
  • heart disease
  • type 2 diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • chronic inflammation
  • nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

  • see source:


    What is Reflexology?
    A harmless therapy using finger pressure
    on specific points of your feet corresponding with parts of the body. I have studied the Eunice D. Ingham Method.

    Therapists can stimulate the body to heal itself to return
    to harmony and balance in your life.
    Reflexology is a holistic health treatment (working on the whole body not just a sore spot).

    Those suffering from migraines, stress, muscular tension could hugely benefit from a regular foot reflexology!

    60 minutes $60
    75 minutes $75 includes a gentle leg massage

    For an appointment
    call Karin 03- 5287186

    or email me karin.lummis{at}

    Looking forward to work together towards
    your well-being!

    I had a 75 minute Reflexology and leg massage, it was very relaxing. I felt tension in my body go away.  I  highly recommend Karin Lummis studio for massage treatments.
