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.
think of massage as a luxury to indulge in on occasion. But one of the most
beneficial times for massage may be during pregnancy.
massage refers to hands-on massage during or after pregnancy.
pregnancy massage typically lasts an hour. Some practitioners use a pregnancy
massage table that is designed to accommodate a woman's pregnant belly. Aesthetic
Beauty & Massage use specially designed pillows called bolsters to position
our pregnant client comfortably on her side.

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
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.
Did you know that Aesthetic Beauty & Massage is registered with a number of
Private Health Providers?
Our point of difference from regular beauty salons is that we offerremedial massage.
Remedial massage is the systematic
assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective
tissue of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
Some examples of problems a remedial massage therapist can address include:
Tension headaches, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff issues, sciatica, reduced
range of motion, lower back problems, sore shoulders, sore neck, whiplash,
kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis, strain caused by computer/keyboard/mouse use,
delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), you get the idea!
You only have one Mother and her special day is almost here!
Mums can only get so excited by flowers and chocolates every year. They would rather some peace and quiet, take some time out and be pampered!
Show mum how much you love her this year with a special Mother's Day voucher from Aesthetic Beauty & Massage. Or perhaps spend some quality time together, buy two and come in at the same time!
With this in mind we have designed a special Mother’s Day Gift Package.
Here’s What Mum Gets
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
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.
