Chinese Journalists Visit Osmosis

Chinese Journalists (30)Recently, Osmosis was visited by a group of Chinese Journalists touring Sonoma County. While most of them were focusing on wine, the Sonoma County Tourism Bureau knew Osmosis was a stop not to be missed. The weather was beautiful, and the journalists couldn’t have been happier. The highest compliment Osmosis received was their opinion of our gardens- our visitors said it made them feel like they were back home, and that our Asian aesthetic is authentic.

Learn How Massage Promotes Health

When my son (now in his thirties) was born, I was given a book titled Loving Hands: The Traditional Art of Baby Massage by Frederick Leboyer. In those early months of new motherhood I would set aside time to massage my baby son with pure coconut oil following his bath. He loved it. He returned the favor when he was still small — by crawling, and then walking on my back when I would lie on the floor. He thought it was very entertaining, and I loved it. These were special bonding times for both of us, helping us to just relax and have fun together. I continued to massage him as he grew older, especially his head and feet, assisting him to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and ease into a relaxed state.
