Let’s face it, in the world we live in today everyone is stressed to the max. Everyone is pressed for time, as well as cash. Spas are inventing new ways to let people relax anytime for as little or as long as they want, and at a price-point that is wallet friendly. For example, we offer massages with professional massage therapists starting at just $45 for 50 minutes. We also offer a Super Special Massage that is 105 minutes, and is $80.
If those price points don’t cut it, we offer the same services, by our students that is $35 for 50 minutes, and $65 for the Super Special of 105 minutes.

The Power of Touch
According to the New York Times, there is evidence that little touches really do mean so much. We’ve often heard about how psychologists study nonverbal communication, including vocal tones, and facial expressions. They both have the same meaning around the world. There are many more signs and signals that are considered to be universal human vocabulary that are nonverbal.
The first language that we learn is physical touch. The energetic field that is transferred from one person to another can be such a powerful conversation. “For instance, a high five can reduce stress. A warm touch sets off a release of oxytocin, a hormone that helps create a sensation of trust, and to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol.”
It’s even evident that massage and skilled touch can mean so much to Alzheimer patients. The intentional caring touch helps reassure those who are confused, calm those who are agitated. It also helps increase body awareness, ground the disoriented person into the present time and space. It’s incredible the amazing affects that can happen just from human touch and contact.

In this day and age, most of us stay connected through our devices by wifi. The wireless connectivity helps us multitask, stay in touch, and operate more efficiently. What we often forget is that our bodies need to operate efficiently, and we have an invisible energy source that we need to make sure is aligned. We are made up of a wireless energy system whose circuits flow in and around us.
While reading an article from Natural Health Magazine, I learned that “this energy field has a significant impact on our health, and getting it up to speed can make us feel rejuvenated, invigorated, healthier—like we’ve given ourselves a reboot. Enter energy medicine, a blend of healing touch and heightened consciousness whose practitioners define health as an unimpeded energy flow; illness occurs when that energy gets blocked. This type of work “can make an amazing difference in healing,” says Santa Fe, N.M.-based holistic physician Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things (Three Rivers Press) and other books on healing. “The components of compassion, caring and love are a very important part of what happens,” he adds. During a session, a practitioner usually touches you lightly while you lie on a table fully clothed.
No one knows exactly how these methods work, but a surprising amount of research supports their efficacy, particularly their ability to reduce pain and anxiety. In fact, conditions with a mind-body component stand the best chance of benefiting. Here, some of the most popular techniques and what to expect from each.
What is your thoughts on Reiki, or any other types of energy medicine? Have you tried it? Does it interest you? Leave us a comment with your thoughts, we’d like to know!

Keep Your Feet Soft Throughout the Winter
If your feet have it rough, treat them to a soothing creme blended with active herbs, exfoliating fruit acids and plant derived oils like jojoba and castor. Even tough, stressed feet are smoothed, cooled, and moisture-charged.

Top 10 Ways to Beat the Winter Blues
1. Exercise: Helps with maintaining weight, staying healthy, relieving stress, and releases “feel good chemicals” that improve your mood.
2. Eat a Healthy Diet: Incorporate foods that provide your body and mind with nutrients (brown rice, whole wheat breads, veggies, and fruits)
3. Get Some Sun: Sunlight brightens your day. Spend more time outdoors, keep your shades up during the day or sit near windows.
4. Act on Your Resolutions: Start exercising, quit smoking. When exhibiting healthy behaviors, individuals have less sad and depressed days.
5. Stay Hydrated; It’s important to stay hydrated this time of year. If cold water is unappealing, try herbal tea, or even hot water with lots of lemon!
6. Treat Yourself: A weekend trip, day at the Rizzieri Spa, sporting event, or even a girls/guys night out.
7. Relax: Everyone needs some time off. Read a book, meditate, or take a yoga class.
8. Embrace the Season: The cold and snow are only here for a few months so enjoy it. Go ice skating, snow-boarding, or even sledding!
9. Get Social Support: A phone call or a chat over coffee with a friend, family, or co-worker, can brighten your mood.
10. Catch some Zzzz’s: Aim for 7-8 hours each night, try not to oversleep, those 12 hour snoozes can make you more tired, and don’t forget naps!

Massaging your baby is not only a great way to bond but has many benefiting factors as well. It can help the digestion of the infant, which causes a healthy growth process, and massage can promote blood circulation. Skin to skin contact stimulates the nervous system, which builds muscle tone, brain function and coordination, and strengthens the immune system.
Infant massage is performed with many different strokes then an adult massage.
Some of those strokes are:
Swedish milking – using your full palms, massage with long fluid strokes toward the heart
Thumb-over-thumb– rhythmic stroking moving the thumbs in the motion of windshield wipers.
Thumb spreading– start with thumbs together and gentle spread outward.
Always keep the mas- sage gentle and slow, to fast can
over stimulate the infant. The calm motions will help your baby relax.
Hold the massage in a warm comforting area that has little distraction.
Olive, safflower and grape seed oil are excellent lubricants for the baby’s skin. Try to avoid products with mineral oil as they clog pores and are not digestible.
