Acupressure Points for Beautiful Skin

The holidays are right around the corner and we all want to look our very best. Here are three acupressure points to stimulate for healthy glowing skin.

Acupressure Points for Beautiful Skin
  1. The third eye point is located right between your eyebrows.  This point stimulates the pituitary gland.  The pituitary gland is the main endocrine gland which helps enhance the condition of the skin all over the body. Use your index finger to hold and slightly press for two minutes. 
  2. Another powerful point is located by the inner corner of the eye.  Place your index fingers in the inner corners of your eyes and hold and slightly press for two minutes.  These points help to relieve dark under eye circles.
  3. Lastly, there are two more common points located on both sides of each nostril.  Place your index fingers on the side of each nostril. Press and hold for two minutes. 

Stimulate these points daily. In a few weeks you should see improvements in your skin.

Since the holidays are upon us please book your face massage appointments early so I can accommodate your preferred time slot.  Cheers!

Save Your Wrists with Proper Keyboard Use

Spending long hours at a keyboard puts you at risk for carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and other work-related upper extremity disorders (WRUEDs).

Researchers found that those who use more force than necessary when hitting the keys on the keyboard had the strongest symptoms of work-related upper extremity disorders. To lower your risk, lighten up.

Tips to help you lighten up:

  • Use the least amount of force needed for the keystrokes to register.
  • Be mindful when typing; post a reminder near your computer to type lightly.
  • Identify your “triggers”; you may tend to type harder when you’re tired, hurried or under stress.
  • Keep your wrists relaxed; neither flexed upwards or downwards.
  • Make sure your monitor is at eye level.

To prevent any disorders or help with any pain or stiffness you may be currently experiencing, I’m offering a half hour hand and arm massage as an add-on to any face or foot massage session.

Comments Off on Ayurvedic Foot Massage

Ayurvedic Foot Massage

I’m constantly continuing my education seeking solutions to counteract the negative effects of stress caused by our fast-paced life. In addition to offering the Ayurvedic facelift massages I recently introduced into my practice the 5,000 year old healing modality known as Kansa Vatki which is an Ayurvedic foot massage.

Kansa Vatki
Ayurvedic foot massage

How is Kansa Vatki foot massage performed?

A metal bowl or metal wand called Kansa, is used with oil to massage the feet. Kansa is considered a sacred metal in the Indian tradition. Kansa means bronze which is a metal alloy, made of copper, tin and zinc which have healing properties.

Copper is helpful for inflammation. Tin helps in cases of headaches and insomnia. Zinc is helpful for the immune system, diabetes and digestion.

Additional Benefits:

  • Reduces stress by calming the mind and body
  • Improves mental clarity and focus
  • Removes toxins from our internal organs allowing for optimal functioning
  • Improves posture, leaving your body more elongated, allowing for more space and energy flow to and around our organs
  • Stimulates and balances all the organs, especially the liver, spleen, stomach and adrenal glands
  • Removes inflammation from the body
  • Removes acidity from the body
  • Removes excessive heat from the body
  • Increases strength and stamina in the lower limbs
  • Improves the condition of ligaments and muscles of the lower limbs
  • Improves blood and lymphatic circulation
  • Relaxes tired feet

Sessions are one hour. Your feet will be very happy!

Comments Off on Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Our face is what we show the world. It indicates the life we are living. Our face shows signs of being tired, run down, stressed, sad or happy.

In addition to having face massages to counteract unwanted signs of aging and stress, try Laughter Yoga.

Laughter Yoga is when you spontaneously begin laughing for no apparent reason. When I first heard about it, it seemed silly but I had to try it. What I experienced after just 20 seconds of laughing was the following. I felt happier, I no longer felt upset by the upsetting incident prior to my laughing, I couldn’t erase the smile on my face and I wanted more.

It turns out there is some scientific veracity behind the old adage, “Laughter is the best Medicine”.

  • Laughter activates the body’s natural relaxation response. When you laugh there’s a contraction which increases blood flow and oxygenation. This stimulates the heart and lungs and triggers the release of endorphins that help you feel more relaxed both physically and emotionally.
  • Laughter boosts immunity. Neuropeptides are released when you are happy which help fight stress.
  • Laughter combats depression. Laughter releases a cocktail of hormones, dopamine and neuropeptides which improve your mood.
  • Laughter relieves pain. Laughter may ease pain by causing the body to produce its own natural pain killers.

So you may want to try a Laughter Yoga class, read a funny book, watch a comedy or spontaneously begin to laugh on your own and enjoy the benefits.

Comments Off on Caring For Your Lips

Caring For Your Lips

When we are young, keratin, collagen and elastin are abundant and give our skin its taught smooth texture.  Unfortunately, as we age these three proteins become less abundant leading to skin that sags and wrinkles.  Unlike the skin on the rest of our body the protective outer layer of the skin on our lips is naturally very thin and does not contain oil glands.  This has a negative effect on the skin surrounding the lips.  Therefore, as we age the lips become thinner and wrinkles tend to easily form around the mouth.

Here are some steps to care for your lips:

  • Use lip balm daily to keep lips moist. 
  • Stay well hydrated to prevent drying out of the lips.
  • Lipstick tends to be drying, especially matte lipstick. Search for a good moisturizing lipstick.
  • Having regular face massages helps to prevent and erase lines around your mouth.

In my signature face massage there is a step called, “smoothing out the wrinkles”.  This step addresses the lines around the mouth which are easily prone to wrinkles.

Comments Off on Natural Sunscreen Choices

Natural Sunscreen Choices

Summer has finally arrived. It’s important to spend time in the sun to get a healthy dose of vitamin D, but you want to be careful not to overdo it. I recommend always wearing sunscreen on the face and neck to prevent wrinkles while allowing the rest of the body to be exposed to the sun for 15-20 minutes and then apply sunscreen to prevent over exposure to the sun.

There are so many sunscreen choices, it’s daunting. Unfortunately, many sunscreens contain toxic ingredients or endocrine disrupting chemicals, such as oxybenzone. Also the chemicals in sunscreen are known to destroy coral reefs in the ocean, another reason to avoid them.

Luckily, there are so many healthy alternatives. I recommend sunscreens containing zinc oxide. My favorite is Kabana Green Screen which is made from non-nano zinc oxide, which means the particles are not made so small. Nano-sized products are so small, and able to penetrate into the body and remain in the body, possibly causing health risks.

Some other brands to check out are Badger Mineral Sunscreen and Think Baby Safe Sunscreen.

Enjoy the sun responsibly!

Comments Off on Brown Spot Remedies

Brown Spot Remedies

No one likes brown spots on their skin, so here are two remedies to help lighten them. Choose either remedy below.

Lemon Juice Remedy
Dab fresh lemon juice directly on the spot twice a day. The lemon juice should be left on for at least 30 minutes or leave on overnight. 

If you apply the lemon juice during the day, make sure it dries before going outside since it can increase skin’s sensitivity to sunlight.

You should see an improvement in about 2 months.

Castor Oil Remedy
Massage castor oil into the skin for a minute until it is absorbed. 

Apply twice daily; once in the morning and once at night.

Results can be seen in 1 month.

Comments Off on The Power of Meditation

The Power of Meditation

Neuroscientists, who have studied the brain of meditators, found that their pre-frontal cortex increases in size.

The pre-frontal cortex is responsible for memory, motor functions, problem solving, language, judgement, and social/sexual behavior.

I was amazed to learn that brain function will improve in as little as meditating 5 minutes a day. This results in more happiness, peace and a heightened awareness.

Meditation permanently rewires the brain, increases the body’s healthy hormones, lowers stress and improves brain function.

Massage has the same effect as meditation on the mind and body, but goes beyond since massage improves the health of our muscles, tendons, lymphatic system and more. Physical touch is necessary for our overall wellbeing. Physical touch helps us feel more connected to each other.

Since I’m a big advocate for mind and body healing, as well as offering massage, I offer a healing modality called, Access Bars.

Access Bars has the ability to clear 5,000-10,000 limiting belief systems, behavioral patterns, limiting emotions, as well as rewiring the brain for happiness and positivity. After just one session Neuroscientist Jeffrey L. Fanin found people’s brains to be functioning at least 3 times above normal.

Comments Off on Exfoliation Is The Key To Younger Looking Skin

Exfoliation Is The Key To Younger Looking Skin

As we age our rate of cell turnover decreases and our need for regular exfoliation increases. Exfoliation sloughs off dead skin cells and encourages new ones to generate.

By removing dead skin cells you derive more benefits from your skin products since exfoliation helps your skin absorb better your serums and moisturizers.

Exfoliation is recommended 2-3 times per week since the buildup of dead skin cells gives you a dull, sallow appearance. Exfoliation leaves you with a more polished and even complexion. Exfoliation is so important, that is why it is one of the major steps in my facelift massage treatments I offer my clients.

In between your facelift massage treatments, here is a do it yourself homemade exfoliation treatment:

  • Combine ingredients and add enough water to make a thick paste.
    • ¼ cup organic cornmeal 
    • ¼ cup grounded oats
  • Rub over face in small circular movements.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Follow with toner and moisturizer.

A Quick Pick Me Up

The holidays are upon us, who couldn’t use a boost? Forget caffeine. Instead turn to peppermint essential oil, a healthier alternative to banish mental fatigue. During the day open the cap and sniff directly from the bottle. In the evening add a few drops into the bath for a relaxing refreshing soak.

Heavenly!

Happy Holidays! What better gift to give than the gift of health and beauty?

Comments Off on Preventing Wrinkles While You Sleep

Preventing Wrinkles While You Sleep

Sleeping on your side causes the skin on your face to crease into your pillow, creating wrinkles. For a more youthful appearance it is recommended sleeping on your back. If you have trouble sleeping on your back, during the day try lying on your back for 20 minutes. This exercise develops muscle memory. Hopefully, when you are ready to go to bed your back muscles will remember the sensation.

If sleeping on your back is not an option, I recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase which is gentle on your face so less likely to cause wrinkles. Also, silk helps your skin to gently slide on the fabric if you switch positions during sleep.

Sweet dreams!

Comments Off on Transitioning To a Fall Skincare Routine

Transitioning To a Fall Skincare Routine

Decreased humidity outside and the moisture-zapping heating indoors takes a toll on our skin. Extra hydration is needed in the fall so use a good hydrating serum and then seal in the moisture with a heavier moisturizer. Receiving regular face massages also hydrates and softens the skin, promoting a more youthful appearance.

Lastly, don’t forget the sunscreen. Just because the weather is colder, we are still exposed to UV-rays from the sun.

Happy autumn!

Comments Off on Touch and Massage Releases Feel-Good Hormones

Touch and Massage Releases Feel-Good Hormones

Our bodies are blessed with the ability to produce its own happiness hormones. Dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins are four hormonal neurochemicals responsible for the feel-good feelings in the body.

Dopamine is secreted by the hypothalamus in anticipation of rewards. Dopamine drives our brain’s reward system and stimulates pleasure-seeking behavior, motivating us to take action toward goals and desires, giving us a surge of reinforcing pleasure as we achieve them. I’ve noticed time after time, when clients are lying on my massage table before I even touch them, many make a sigh and their bodies begin to relax. This is just from the anticipation of knowing the massage will leave them in a relaxed state. This is the work of Dopamine. It’s important to always have something to look forward to and be able to visualize the rewards of your goals.

The next feel-good hormone is oxytocin. A hug or a caring touch stimulates oxytocin. Oxytocin was also found to reduce cardiovascular stress and enhance the immune system.

Serotonin is called the, “happy hormone”. The most effective way to naturally boost serotonin is through exercise, social bonding and massage. Most clients fall asleep during massage due to the body producing serotonin, a key component of sleep.

The fourth of the feel-good hormones, endorphins, are known as pain-killing hormones. Endorphins are released by the brain, spinal cord and pituitary gland and work in conjunction with serotonin to alleviate anxiety and depression. Exercise helps stimulate endorphins. That’s how the term “runner’s high” was coined. Researchers discovered that endorphins are released during massage helping to reduce pain in the body.

Schedule a face massage today to get your dose of feel-good hormones.

Comments Off on Aloe: Nature’s Skin Soother

Aloe: Nature’s Skin Soother

Aloe is one of my favorite go to herbs to soothe irritated skin. When you squeeze the leaf of an aloe plant, a gel like substance is released. Not only is aloe gel effective for sunburns but it can also be used on minor cuts and other types of burns.

Aloe appears to increase blood flow to wounded areas, which help speed healing. It also contains compounds that may relieve pain, reduce inflammation and prevent infection.

The freshest and most potent aloe gel is using the gel from a live plant. If purchasing an aloe product commercially, make sure it is pure aloe gel and the first ingredient in the product says aloe gel.

Enjoy the rest of your summer. To schedule a soothing face massage, I will be returning from vacation on August 24th.

Comments Off on Welcome To Summer!

Welcome To Summer!

Summer is here and that means transitioning into a lighter skincare regime and properly protecting ourselves from the sun. Here are some tips to help you do just that.

        • In winter we require a heavier moisturizer to combat dryness. Now it is best to switch to a lighter moisturizer to prevent clogging your skin.
        • Apply sunscreen daily to prevent sunburn. Select one which offers broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. Purchase your sunscreen from a natural food store to avoid toxic ingredients found in most other sunscreens.
        • Do not limit sunscreen application only to the face. Include your hands and neck as well. These areas show our age more rapidly than the face.
        • For added sun protection, wear sunglasses and a hat.
