Ease Anxiety

Filed under: Facts and Tips,massage — Jennifer @ 9:02 am

Stress releases cortisol into the bloodstream. Because cortisol is acidic, it irritates the lymphatic and digestive systems—and thus vata, the dosha (or life force) in the colon that’s linked to the nervous system.
TREATMENT: I plan a diet and herbal regimen for my patients based on their symptoms, allergies, eating habits, and genetic predispositions. I recommend they eat only three meals a day so they burn fat, which is the calmest source of energy. To energize but not overstimulate vata, I recommend herbal adaptogens like tulsi and ashwagandha.
SELF-HELP: Try sarvabhyanga, a self-massage that calms the peripheral nervous system, for one or two minutes in the shower. Use circular strokes to massage herbal sesame oil on your head, joints, and feet, and longer strokes over your bones.

Massage Your Insomnia Away

Filed under: Facts and Tips,massage — Jennifer @ 8:55 am

Massage Away Tension

A soothing massage releases muscular tension and helps the transition to bed. Try rubbing your head, neck, face, and arms with warm, unfiltered organic sesame oil. “This puts a shield around the body and also makes you feel nurtured,” says Palkhivala. You can also include someone in your ritual by asking them for a yawn-inducing rubdown: The spine from the neck downward should be stroked for about five minutes with a gentle touch.

Filed under: News / Events — Jennifer @ 8:13 am

Last Sunday, Rizzieri Aveda School for Beauty and Wellness hosted it’s first ever Catwalk for Water – “Rock & Recycle at Rizzieri” with a special thanks to Aveda, and Firecreek Restaurant. Several student teams competed with original hair, costume, and makeup design, as well as area salons. There was an amazing turnout, and we are very grateful for the tremendous amount of support. All proceeds went to the Clean Ocean Action, a non-profit that supports the protection and preservation of beaches in New Jersey.

DIY – Turn Your Shower Into Sauna

Filed under: Facts and Tips — Rizzieri School of Massage @ 8:50 am

Turn your shower into a sauna

“Just turn your shower on and run it at its hottest temperature for about 20 minutes. While the water is running and the steam is building, take a warm washcloth and spray with your favorite relaxing oil. (Lavender, vanilla or rosemary are all great de-stressing aromas.) When you step into your shower, put the washcloth up to your face and take a deep breath of your soothing, oil-scented steam. It’s a great way to unwind right before bed—and it also helps clear up sinuses.” Aly Walanksy, eBeauty Daily

Wednesday Wellness Tip – Dairy

There is more to the dairy story. Unless labeled hormone free, most milk comes from cows treated with a bovine growth hormone called r BGH or r BST to boost milk production. Milk from cows treated with r BGH contain higher levers of IGF-1, which is a powerful insulin- like hormone that has been linked to cancers of the reproductive system. To avoid bovine growth hormone, it is important to purchase either organic milk or dairy products labeled from hormone-free animals.

Fix Your Stress At Home

Filed under: Aveda Product — Rizzieri School of Massage @ 8:45 am

Stress can really take its toll on your physical, emotional and spiritual health. At Aveda, we turn to Ayurveda, a 5,000 year-old healing tradition from India, and western science to find 21st century technology, for solutions to the stress we experience every day. Both teach us that the power of touch, breath and aromaology can be combined to create quick and easy wellness rituals you can do at home to give yourself the mental, physical and emotional break your body needs.

Stress-fix™ body lotion, concentrate and soaking salts are all Ecocert-certified organic. Their aroma—infused with French lavender, lavandin and clary sage from organic farms—is clinically proven to relieve feelings of stress.

Aveda has some great at-home rituals that you can use to help relieve your stress. Here are some examples

Perfect for people who type or have other repetitive hand movements during the day.


Apply stress-fixTM body lotion to your hands, hold under your nose and take a deep breath. With your arms in a neutral position, rotate your wrists several times in both directions. Use the thumb of your left hand to massage the palm of your right in strong, circular motions. Repeat for your left palm. Turn your hands over and use the thumb of your left hand to massage the back of your right hand stroking from knuckle to wrist. Finish by using a pinch and release motion to massage each finger. Repeat for opposite hand. FOR BODY
After showering, massage stress-fixTM body lotion into your hands, hold them under your nose and take a deep breath.  Then massage onto tense areas such as the neck, shoulders and forearms using the Ayurvedic technique of moving in  circular motions at the joints and back-and-forth motions between joints. Apply to your abdomen using clockwise circular motions.
