Let's get moving!!

Most of us sit too much. Waaaay too much. We sit in meetings. In front of the computer and tv. During the daily commute. And all this sitting, along with a lack of physical activity, has devastating effects on the body and the brain. 

Ready for the sitting list of results? Too much time in the chair leads to a decline in health, an increase in stress, poor posture and related aches and pains, and an unfocused brain that has a hard time thinking critically and processing memory. For every 1 hour of sitting make sure to get up and move around for 5 minutes…walk around the office or home, talk on the telephone, go up and down the stairs if available, etc. The main thing is to get your body MOVING!

And to help your body with all that stress, and related aches and pains, is to try and get a professional massage on a regular basis, whether it be every week, every 2 weeks, or even once a month. Massage is great for improving circulation, tension, and range of motion...and it just plain feels great!

Give your local day spa a call and make an appointment for a massage today...or in other words...Let's get moving!!

Summer Skin Care...

We all know that winter with it's cold dry air and indoor heating can dry our skin out causing fine lines and wrinkles...but did you know summer can be just as bad?

Air conditioning keeps us cool by taking moisture out of the air and lowering humidity levels. Unfortunately that moisture is also being taken out of our skin. Add on top of that sweating, multiple applications of sunscreen throughout the day, makeup, dirt, etc., and you wind up with skin that is in need of serious help.

Proper cleansing/moisturizing at night is necessary to remove all these impurities and to hydrate your skin while you sleep. In addition to your nightly routine, it is important that you follow up with a visit to your local day spa and make an appointment with an esthetician to have a professional facial. A one hour facial will consist of cleansing, steaming, exfoliation, extractions, and moisturizing on a much deeper level than at home leaving your skin glowing.

Why not give your local day spa a call now and book that facial? will love it and more importantly your skin will thank you for it!
