After massaging my clients I always ‘bring them round’ with a cup of ginger tea. It  has many healing properties: Ginger is anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti viral. It is an amazing pick-me-up and brilliant if you feel the onset of tonsillitis/ coughs/colds or flu.

It is so easy to make, here is the Recipe:

10cm of root ginger, peeled and finely sliced.

1 litre of water

Brown sugar or honey to taste, Manuka honey 15+ is the best.


Add the ginger and water into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 60 minutes. Add the sugar or honey to taste. Lemon may be added for an extra lift.

Caution: do not let pan boil dry!
