Getting Summer Ready With Hair and Nails

Published

on

My hair was totally out of control and I desperately needed it cut. My friend Margarita recommended Angela Niafa. She works at Cheveux Atelier, 1316 1St Ave. I was so impressed by the place as it was clean, beautifully decorated and has reasonable prices that will not break your piggy bank.

They even have a special of 20% off for new clients.

What makes Angela so special is she listens to you. Getting my hair cut scares me as my hair can make me or break me. Within one hour I had a Prince telling me I was chic, but more importantly I felt put together. I watched as two other women were made to look their best. Now that makes me give Angela a shout out.

Getting nails done in the city use to be a breeze, but now prices have gone through the roof and the work, not so great. I went onto Groupon and got a gel manicure for $48 orginally $60. I headed to Marc Joseph Salon at 147 West 40th Street. There I got Maria, who was a joy. She took care of me and made my hands feel very special, as she took exquisite care. The salon itself is clean, well laid out and offers wine if you so choose. I recommend Maria highly and now am ready for summer.

Simmer and sip all of their wonderful offerings that promote wellness and comfort as well as help boost immune systems and your mental and physical health.

Nicole and Zac together out of love created this fantastic brand that also has a giveback component.

“We love bees, and we can’t live without them. We know bees are dying all over the world. Our mission is to save the bees through teaching others about how they can help,” they state. “Each year, we allocate funds from sales of all products to pay for the creation of the beehives we plant. We buy and lend gear to new students that want to learn, until they’re interested enough to buy their own. Each yard maxes out at about 25 hives at a cost of about $30 to $50 each (depending on materials and how many boxes are added). During harvest, we bring the community together, provide a honey extractor, wax removers etc so everyone can learn the full process. Students provide their own ball jars, buckets etc so they can take what they want home. We then show the students how to package the excess for retail if they wish. With every purchase, you help make all of the above happen. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

The Benefits of a Lymphatic-Drainage Massage

Published

on

I recently had the chance to try the icoone experience at the Organic Spa Media Event. What this machine does is give an intensive lymphatic drainage massage is the course of a short amount of time. The all-new icoone machine delivers 21,600 microstimulations every minute with Multi Micro Alveolar Stimulation that help to achieve quicker, longer-lasting results. The experience is extremely enjoyable and also does body shaping, anti-cellulite treatments, skin rejuvenation, lfirming, and improving blood circulation as well.

Getting a Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialized form of massage therapy that aims to stimulate the lymphatic system to promote the flow of lymph, a fluid that contains white blood cells, throughout the body. This type of massage helps to remove waste products, toxins, and excess fluids from the tissues, improving overall health and boosting the immune system.

The lymphatic drainage massage was developed in the 1930s by Danish doctors Emil and Estrid Vodder while they were working on the French Riviera. They noticed that patients with chronic colds had swollen lymph nodes, and through gentle massage techniques, they were able to relieve the swelling and improve the patients’ health. This technique has since been refined and is now used worldwide as a therapeutic treatment.

The lymphatic system is a crucial part of the immune system, consisting of a network of lymphatic vessels, nodes, and organs. It helps maintain fluid balance, absorb fats from the digestive tract, and protect the body against infections. Unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system does not have a central pump (like the heart) and relies on muscle movement, breathing, and manual manipulation to move lymph through the vessels.

A lymphatic drainage massage involves a series of gentle, rhythmic strokes and light pressure techniques that follow the direction of lymph flow, usually towards the heart. The therapist uses their hands to stimulate the lymphatic vessels and nodes, starting from the extremities and moving towards the body’s core. What this machine does is masterfully get in deeper and quicker.

You will feel small, circular movements on the skin. Then a gentle pressure and releasing it in a pumping motion. A scooping motion encourages lymph flow, while rotational movements on larger body areas.

Lymphatic drainage massage offers numerous health benefits, including:

  • Detoxification as it helps remove toxins and waste products from the body.
  • Reduced Swelling: Alleviates lymphedema and reduces fluid retention, especially after surgery or injury.
  • Improved Immune Function: Enhances the body’s ability to fight infections by stimulating lymph flow.
  • Pain Relief: Can reduce pain associated with conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis.
  • Skin Health: Promotes healthy, glowing skin by reducing puffiness and improving circulation.
  • Relaxation: Induces a state of deep relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety.

Lymphatic drainage massage can also help with post-surgical recovery to help reduce swelling and speed up healing. In chronic conditions, such as managing symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis. It also helps reduce puffiness, improve skin tone, and manage cellulite.

Lymphatic drainage massage is not suitable for everyone. Especially if you have a chronic infections. Massages can spread an infection. Also if you have blood clots, heart conditions, cancer or kidney problems, as it can increase fluid load on the kidneys.

Lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle, effective therapy for enhancing lymphatic flow, supporting the immune system, and promoting overall health. When performed by a trained therapist, it can provide significant benefits for a variety of conditions, contributing to both physical and mental well-being. However, it is essential to consider individual health conditions and consult with healthcare professionals before undergoing this type of massage therapy.
