Yes, Fall is here in all it’s glory bringing with it football, tailgating, changing of the leaves to gorgeous shades of red, yellow and orange, picking out pumpkins, dressing up for Halloween and…chilly weather!

It’s the kind of weather along with rain that can chill you right to your bones.  Hot apple cider and pumpkin lattes are great for taking off that chill but there is also something else you might want to check out.  A Far Infrared sauna can do wonders for warming you up and definitely chasing away that chill.  The heat from this type sauna penetrates deeply into your muscle tissues and along with sweating, is thought to be responsible for the healing effects and the other health benefits associated with infrared rays…natural pain relief, relief of muscle spasms, increase of circulation, decrease of joint stiffness, and relaxation.  

Give your local day spa a call and make an appointment for an infrared sauna and while you’re doing that, make one too for a massage before the sauna…you will love it and so will your body!

Stress in the workplace!

Feeling overwhelmed at work? Too much to do and not enough hours in the day? Appointments not running on time - thereby throwing off the day's schedule? Wish you had four hands at times to get all the day's tasks done? Not appreciated for all the work you do? Snapping at friends and family after work? 

Well...you're not alone! Stress in the workplace can reach epic levels and stays with you even after you've left work for day. Trying to get a handle on it before it gets out of hand is in itself stressful! What to do?

A few things to keep in mind before heading out to work and during the day; start with a good protein and fiber filled breakfast to stave off hunger pains; mentally go over what tasks have to be done and write them down in order of importance; take a few minutes break each hour by getting up from your desk/computer and walking around to clear your head; do not eat lunch at your desk and try to go outside for a quick walk; leave all problems associated with your job at your job when you are done for the day!

Stress also worsens any kind of muscle aches in your back, neck and shoulder areas so give your local day spa a call and make an appointment for a therapeutic massage. You will leave feeling much more relaxed and stress free!
