Why Tanya's Wellness Farm & Spa

The farm spa environment makes it an easier place to come to. It has no stigma or pressure associated with it. This makes it easier for people to seek help. It is very important to get out doors and away from the hectic lives we lead.
Spending time in nature has been shown to lower stress levels, Seattle-based environmental psychologist Judith Heerwagon tells The Huffington Post. “Just looking at a garden or trees or going for a walk, even if it’s in your own neighborhood, reduces stress,” she says. “I don’t think anyone understands why, but there’s something about being in a natural setting that shows clear evidence of stress reduction, including physiological evidence — like lower heart rate.”
The outdoors make us happy.
In addition to helping decrease stress levels, spending more time with nature shows a shift toward more positive moods, says Heerwagon. While we don’t know exactly why this happens in our bodies, “the theory is that we respond positively to things that are good for us,” she tells The Huffington Post. “Trees offer shade, protection and often have fruits and nuts, so they are a source of food as well as protection and comfort.” The idea is that we like things that are inherently good for us and our survival, which is why trees and other natural elements can help lift our moodshttps://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/22/how-the-outdoors-make-you_n_5508964.htm

~ A sampeling of services we will be providing ~

Horses mirror us, thus reflecting back everything we need to see about ourselves. Sometimes the mirror shines on our success, greatness, joy, and happiness, and other times it exposes the darkness and our shadow. This is how we can face and work through our darkness. Just being in the presence of a horse is healing for most people.
Strengthen after surgery
After surgery breast cancer survivors develop neck and shoulder impingement. Impingement syndromes start with achiness in the neck and shoulders.. Grooming horses helps get those muscles moving creating strength and flexibility. This along with myofascial release can really help reduce pain
Finding purpose after war
Equine Assisted Coaching allows vets to successfully transition into civilian life. ‘Breakthroughs’ occur more easily and organically than traditional coaching methods as horses do not judge people…and they have no agenda. They are large, strong animals, but they are also prey animals and therefore trust with a horse must be earned; they are brutally honest, mirroring our body language and acting accordingly.
Releasing pain and stress
After surgery breast cancer survivors develop neck and shoulder impingement. Neck and shoulder impingement can cause shooting pain down the arm and lead to another surgery. Impingement syndromes start with achiness in the neck and shoulders.
Myofascial release is a type of medical massage that is NOT painful. Focus is placed on gently releasing tension along thickenings of fascia and scar tissue. Releasing this tension restores posture and alignment. It also relieves knots and painful areas in all parts of the body.
Group Coaching
Equine Assisted Coaching transforms the human heart and spirit. Horses are very “present” beings, meaning that they do not focus so much on the past or the future, but live in the moment. They are the perfect animal to help leaders and teams develop presence, self-confidence and awareness
Mindfulness-based approaches are most commonly delivered through the use of mindfulness meditation, though mindfulness may be achieved through a variety of techniques. During mindfulness meditation, the practitioner will typically guide the person or people in therapy to direct their focus on the present moment. The participants are trained to zone in on a particular phenomenon. If the participants become aware that their thoughts are drifting away from the present, they are encouraged to take notice of where they are and what they are doing before bringing their attention back to the present moment, without reacting or judging themselves.
Wigs for Alopicia and Cancer
Recover With Confidence. Cancer and Alopecia patients experience great emotional pain from the extreme change in their appearance. Losing their hair can significantly harm their self-image and self-esteem. We want to provide the perfect wig to help build their self-esteem.
Make-up Lessons
Those suffering from Alopecia or going through Chemotherapy can loose their eye lashes and eyebrows. They need to learn how to apply lashes, brows and how to apply their makup.

A little can go a long way!
