The 5 love languages - a way to keep love alive

Posted by Ann Randrup on 2013.03.13

Treatments : Family councelling, Coaching, Counseling, Couple Therapy

Issues : Sexuality, Love, Marital/relationship issues, Negative pattern

We all need love. And even though we really want to it can be hard to keep the love alive between you and your partner. We often give what we want to receive. But maybe that is not what your partner is longing for. Maybe you are different in the way you feel and express love. Try to learn your partner’s language - It will pay off…

 

Also take a moment to consider what is your main languages and how can you express your needs in a clear and concrete way – nagging can have the total opposite effect of what you was hoping for...

 

Here is a little summery of the 5 love languages. They are simple yet an effective tool to keep the love alive - and they are easy to recognize and learn:

 

Physical Touch

This is not all about the bedroom. If his is your primary language you are very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face – will all be ways to show concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and very hurtful.

 

Acts of Service

Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything to help and ease the burdens will speak volumes. The words you most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” or "Let me help you." Laziness, broken commitments, or making a mess and more work will tell you that your feelings don’t matter.

 

Quality Time

For you nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there is critical, but really being there – with the TV or phone off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes you feel truly special and loved. If your partner fails to listen or cancel dates it can be especially hurtful. Quality time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.

 

Words of Affirmation

Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, compliments and verbal appreciation mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important – hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. Kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life giving.

 

Receiving Gifts

Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; this is about the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. The perfect gift or gesture shows love and care and makes you feel valued above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous – so would the absence of everyday gestures. Gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.

Are you pregnant?

Are you pregnant?

Posted by Ann Randrup on 2012.11.14

Hello, my name is Ann and I am the person behind MyBestTreat. I would like to welcome you to this first feature which is about pregnancy and birth. Firstly I write about this because it is a turbulent time in a woman’s life where new needs can occur. Secondly because I gave birth to a baby daughter a few months ago and I were quite surprised how challenging the entire process was for both body and mind.

Throughout the pregnancy I re-lived all the issues I have ever had in my life – physical and emotional. Again and again I felt I was completely back to scratch; when problems I though I had dealt with and put behind me suddenly reappeared. My allergies came back, my digestion problems, my anxiety - and all the conflicts I have ever had with my husband came back with a new intensity. So we had to go back into couple’s therapy and I had to see my homeopath, my healer and my massage therapist over again. On top of that I experienced new issues: I had a painful pelvic instability in the 3rd month of my pregnancy, I had water in my body, and a feeling of being trapped – just to name a few. It took me quite some time to find the people who could help me with all the new problems. But after a month of intense search I found someone who could treat my unstable pelvis – and it was quite a relief to be able to walk again.

Then of course there was all the considerations about the actual birth. Should the delivery be in water ...


Meet Marcus Klaudi

Meet Marcus Klaudi

We are meeting Marcus Klaudi at his clinic in downtown Copenhagen. Marcus is a massage therapist and healer and six months ago he created a profile on MyBestTreat, an online community about health. He has not regretted his decision.

During his first six months on MyBestTreat Marcus got 30 new clients and increased his prices and he no longer needs to worry about computers and marketing. Marcus Klaudi is a massage therapist and has been working with massage and healing for 12 years.

Judging from his recommendations on the website MyBestTreat he is very good at what he does. His profile on the site is well visited, it has brought him many new clients and made it possible for him to increase his prices. However, getting new clients is not the only positive effect Marcus has experienced since he started using MyBestTreat. ”I am really happy to be on MyBestTreat and not having to spend my time on marketing activities and updating my website. This is so much easier. I simply ask my clients to visit my profile and give me a recommendation. I don’t even have to write a lot of information about what I do, because they write it for me.”

The recommendations Marcus has recieved on MyBestTreat speak for themselves. Reading through them you will see that Marcus has cured issues such as pain in the feet, knees, back, neck and shoulders, stiffness and pelvic instability. Another theme that shows up repeatedly in his recommendatio...


Tantra - Sex and the City

Tantra - Sex and the City

Posted by Ann Randrup on 2012.11.14

When my boyfriend suggested me to try out Tantra I was completely outraged. From what I had heard about Tantra it did not sound like my cup of tea In my mind Tantra was for vied men who could go on for hours without coming and who wanted that? To have a man going on for ever and ever without ever finishing. No thank you – not very appealing.

And I still remember that episode from Sex and the City, where the girls take a Tantra class in a New York apartment. The teacher is an older woman with a strong Russian accent, and just like that she is getting ready to demonstrate a special massage technique right there on the living room floor. Her husband comes in, takes off his robe and stands naked and choppy in front of the girls - and already here Miranda and I have had enough. But the woman gets to work and the whole thing ends in a massive ejaculation that ends up in Miranda's hair with a splash. Outragingly disgusting! So it was somewhat of challenge for me to become ready to try it out.

Slowly over the last couple of years I have realized that I might have got the wrong idea about Tantra. So I decided to try it out. I signed up for a Tantra class with Diamond Light Tantra in London and showed up one Friday nigh feeling both unsure and curious about the weekend ahead of me. Turned out it was very different to what I expected. And a lot better. It was very healing and releasing. The exercises were sweet and loving. And when you like me ...
