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.
Swedish Massage - For pure relaxation and stress management.

This style of massage could be seen as the corner stone upon which the industry
of Remedial Massage was built, because this is the basic style of massage from
which most (if not all) other techniques were based.

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

You may have heard of DOMS or ‘delayed onset muscle soreness’. It is a
particular type of muscle soreness that sets in a day after exercise. The
exercise is usually very hard or far more than the individual would normally be
muscular contractions (where the muscle
lengthens as it contracts) such as in hopping, bounding and other exercise, running downhill, squatting and the lowering phase when lifting
weights, can cause DOMS.
