week I tried a juice cleanse for the first time.I am a fairly healthy person
who eats a balanced diet, my weight is in the healthy weight range and I do regular exercise.
However I have struggled to shed a few kilos that crept on over summer and the
usual calorie tracking / increased exercise has not shifted it. I felt like a juice
cleanse might just be the clean slate my body needed to start responding like
it used to.
Not really knowing where to start, I opted to go with a local company Pure Glow
Cleanse, who offer a 3 day slow pressed juices, option.
Did you know that Aesthetic Beauty & Massage is registered with a number of
Private Health Providers?
Our point of difference from regular beauty salons is that we offerremedial massage.
Remedial massage is the systematic
assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective
tissue of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
Some examples of problems a remedial massage therapist can address include:
Tension headaches, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff issues, sciatica, reduced
range of motion, lower back problems, sore shoulders, sore neck, whiplash,
kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis, strain caused by computer/keyboard/mouse use,
delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), you get the idea!
As a Massage Therapist, I am often asked how I became/remain strong. My secret is handstands!
There’s no question that most adults, no matter how strong
or athletic they are, are intimidated by handstands.
But just because you didn’t take gymnastics as a kid and are scared to death of
falling on your head when attempting them doesn’t mean you should avoid
Because not only are handstands fun, they’re actually really
good for you.
Why handstands are so awesome:
They make your upper body naturally and evenly strong
