If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or whispers a kind word of encouragement, or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen.

Chronic pain, health and emotional challenges cause tension in the body and mind. Our meditation CDs guide listeners toward a natural peace that facilitates sleep and relaxation.
Developed and spoken by initiator of Relaxing The Mind, Sue Weston, Healing Boxes proudly offers:
Sue Weston’s two guided meditations prepare the body and mind for rest, and introduce a pattern of healthy, deep sleep. Sleep is designed to counter worry, pain, noise, anxiety and general exhaustion – anything that interrupts peaceful sleep.
Track 1 guides the listener into letting go of worries and other thoughts that keep the mind busy.
Track 2 is a guided meditation that awakens awareness of physical tensions and pain. It directs the mind and heart to relax those parts of the body that carry tension and release it, completely.
When you want to send something that can be held, treasured and serve as a reminder your support is steady, our hand-painted palm stones fit the bill.
With thoughtfully chosen words across each centre, every smooth, clay stone is one of a kind – a truly unique source of comfort.
And because they contain no metal, our palm stones can be held during scans, providing support when needed most in hospitals and health care facilities.
TBI Wellness Journal
Our recycled notebook is made of 100% recycled content and gorgeous blank pages just waiting for your pen or pencil. A must have journal or imagination pad, this pocket-sized piece is as useful as it is beautiful.
A perfect place to honour thoughts and experiences.
Includes a TBI Journalling Prompts Guide.
You might like to use it as a repository of your thoughts, feelings, frustrations and triumphs. Or it can be used as a planner to prepare your day, writing reminders and keeping all your to-dos, appointments, contacts and dates in one place. If you want to make this a wellness journal it can be useful to track your patterns, pacing, and pain scale.
I loved my Healing Box!
It brightened my day to have a self-care package delivered straight to my door, and the delight of it all lasted days…
Sipping my tea… carrying my palm stone with me everywhere. The notecards are beautiful. I can’t wait to treat myself again!

For sure, I’ll be ordering again for myself, or for some dear friends of mine.
It’s amazing in every form, and I’m so happy that I received a box!
