My First Juice Cleanse

This 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.

Massage Styles Explained

Swedish Massage - For pure relaxation and stress management.

Swedish Massage is the basic relaxation technique named after the Swedish physiologist and gymnastics instructor who devised the strokes.  It incorporates long, smooth, flowing strokes to promote general relaxation.  Due to the style of this massage, the strokes target the superficial musculature mainly. 

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.

My Upper Body Strength Secret

As a Massage Therapist, I am often asked how I became/remain strong. My secret is handstands!

There’s no question that most adults, no matter how strong or athletic they are, are intimidated by handstands.

But just because you didn’t take gymnastics as a kid and are scared to death of falling on your head when attempting them doesn’t mean you should avoid handstands forever.

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

Starting or increasing an exercise routine? Massage can help you.

Happy New Year to my clients and readers! I have chosen this topic for the blog as I have had quite a few discussions with clients lately in regards to their exercise habits that they have increased in the New Year.

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 accustomed to. 

In particular eccentric 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.

Superfoods that keep you beautiful from the inside out!

 

Good nutrition is vital to maintaining your natural beauty. Here is an outline of foods that are great for your skin and rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals:
 
Capsicum, Kale, orange, kiwifruit, strawberries, lemons, broccoli and chili are rich in Vitamin C. This vitamin assists collagen production and protects cells from free radical damage.

Sunflower seeds, almonds, wheat germ and avocado are rich in Vitamin E helping to protect cell membranes and guard against UV radiation damage.
