Ali’s Health Corner:  Topics that affect our Health & Wellness

Happy New Year!!

I hope that as you contemplate this new year you’ll think about how to live in the present more often. Living in the present encourages us to be aware, go deeper, and seek to know ourselves first rather than to judge others.  Why is this important?  Because it ultimately leads to inner peace.  Tama Kieves, one of my favorite authors, says that we are like the ocean.  On the surface, the ocean can be turbulent, but if we dive deep, that is where we find silence, peace, and everything looks more beautiful.

Focusing too frequently on the past and what you used to be or what you used to have may lead to feelings of depression, while focusing too much on the future and what you don’t yet have may create feelings of anxiety. If we learn to focus on the present and be grateful for where we are and what we have, it can lead to feelings of joy, peace, and a greater respect for others.

We’d like to help you focus more on “present living” this year. As part of the classes that will be taught at The Spa, we’re making a special concentration on meditation—which helps the brain focus on how to be present.

Many credible, medical studies show that meditation slows aging in the brain, but it wasn’t until studies from UCLA’s School of Medicine revealed in 2015 that “On average, the brains of long-term meditators were 7.5 years younger at age 50 than the brains of non-meditators, and an additional 1 month and 22 days younger for every year after 50.”

Do you want a younger brain and to dive deeper into your spirit? Come join us for our 4-week meditation course starting Monday nights beginning January 21st from 6:00pm-7:30pm. It’s only $130 for all four classes. Classes will be taught by Carmen Rose, who is certified in meditation and yoga. This series is especially good for those who want to learn how to meditate. You will learn different meditation styles, meditation myths, and the importance of formal and informal practice.

For those who are already experienced meditators or who just want to implement it more into their lives, we will also be offering a weekly Thursday morning meditation class starting February 7th from 9:00am-9:45am. If you sign up for the four-week Meditation course above, the February weekly meditation classes will only be $5.00 per class. (Please see our additional courses below.). There are only 8 spots available for these courses so please sign up quickly if you’d like to attend.

We hope you join us for both the four-week course and the weekly meditation!

Kitty’s Corner: Detox Challenge and Ritual

Join me for The Spa January Detox Challenge & Ritual!

January has always been my month to detox. It’s a perfect month to kick off the year by being as clean as you can. For me, that means cutting out all alcohol, refined sugar, and bread. This year, I will also be adding movement every day, too. My choice of movement will be yoga this year. I’ve been doing this detox ritual for four years now, and each year, it has helped me throughout the year to be more mindful of what I put in my body.

My ritual includes replacing my alcohol with fresh made juice, a warm evening tea, or flavored water with a lime or lemon. Now I will replace refined sugars with real fruits, like an apple, and replace bread with more salad or another healthy choice.

I also choose to do my workouts towards the evening, which for me takes away that temptation of pouring a glass of wine after work. Many of my friends join me in my January detox, which makes it easier, more fun, and holds me accountable.

I hope you’ll join me!  This year, I’m going to make some non-alcohol drinks that are refreshing and heathy rather than just do juicing for 30 days. Click here to see one I’m planning to do:

I have chosen the special this month to be the Far infared sauna treatment to help give us all a kick start in eliminating stored toxins including those nasty pesticides, and the seaweed body wraps for the same reason, but also seaweed feeds the body nutrients. (See specials below.). I would also encourage you to attend Ali’s (our Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach) Detox class on Tuesday, January 8 from 6:00pm-7:00pm for some additional jump starts in getting your body cleaned out and functioning at its best.

Cheers to a healthy new you, and I hope to see you at the Spa.

Much Love,
Kitty (Owner)

Seaweed Body Wrap Special

Algae, rich in minerals, is one of nature’s most potent nutrients in the world. In this 60-minuate special, your body will be painted by our talented staff with a mixture of potent ocean algae and many precious essential oils that work synergistically. You’ll then be gently wrapped in mylar like a beautiful cocoon to allow the ingredients to work their magic on your skin. Since our blood plasma is similar in composition to the ocean, algae doesn’t know the difference between you and the ocean so it crosses blood barriers to remineralize and rebalance the body. This treatment releases toxins that cause the skin to appear ripples or thick, such as upper arms, pouches on upper hips, and bloated or distended waists and stomachs. * This wonderfully, gentle detoxing and nutrient-rich treatment is only $89 this month.

*Please let us know if you are allergic to iodine or if you’re pregnant.
