Kitty’s Corner

Have you hit that dip in the summer where you might have indulged in too much fun food and drinks at the Mid-State Fair or at this summer‘s barbecues and you’re just not feeling your best?

About this time each year, clients begin to complain about digestive issues (e.g., heartburn, indigestion, & constipation), as well as bad skin health.  It’s likely due to everything that accompanies that fun in the sun—an overindulgence in hotdogs, hamburgers, desserts, alcohol, and chips.

Why does overindulgence create havoc?  Ample research* shows that 70% of our health is in our gut, which is an enormous endocrine organ.  It absorbs essential nutrients and makes a number of hormones.  Thus, when something is out of balance there, it affects much of our body and mind.  When things are working well, it can provide us with health, good immunity, and youthful looking skin.  Its rich supply of nerves has earned its name “gut brain,” and it’s also literally connected to the brain in our heads via the vagus nerve. It’s not surprising then that our brain is most affected by nutrition.  The healthier your gut is, the healthier your brain is and the happier you will be because 90% of serotonin (the “feel good” hormone) is made in the gut.*

Since we have trillions of strains of gut bacteria, however, you’re likely not going to be able to get all you need through food.  Since probiotics are affected by moisture, stomach acid and other factors, we’ve done a lot of research to select the specific one we carry at The Spa.  Always check with your doctor before going on any supplements, especially if you’re on any medication.

There are 8 particular probiotics that are especially powerful for your gut and skin.  We sell a high quality internal probiotic and also carry a specific skin product called LaFlore that specifically keeps the bacteria on your face balanced. If you want to heal your gut, reach out to Ali, our Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach to do a four-week health reset.

I wish you all the best and optimal health!

Much love,
Kitty (Owner) & Ali (Manager & Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach)

Bulletin

  • Part of our regular services now include a power nap.  Naps enhance the immune system according to a 2015 study by Nature Neuroscience.  They are highly refreshing and don’t interfere with your night’s sleep.  The study completed revealed that subjects’ performance deteriorated after each of the four daily tests given, but participants who took a 30-minute nap between tests stopped the deterioration in performance.  Those who took a 60-minute nap even reversed it.  Just $35 for 30 minutes.
  • Thank you for helping us to grow!  We recently added four more wonderful people to our growing team.  Please welcome Monica (massage therapist), Violet (front desk) Emily (spa attendant), and Dalleah (spa attendant).  They look forward to making your experience a relaxing one.
  • We no longer allow gratuity to be put on credit cards.  If you’d like to leave your therapist gratuity, please bring cash.
  • Family Menu & Family Plus Memberships (you can now add your partner and children to your membership). Children can be added for just $50 each child or teen.  This must be done in The Spa.

Health & Wellness Classes

I keep being asked to teach a class specifically on losing weight because I hear from people that even though they are cutting back on the amount they eat, they still don’t lose weight.  There is a reason why!  Want to find out?  You might be surprised but the main problem may be one of your organs.  Can you guess which one?  You will learn how to lose weight and keep it off, as well as receive suggested meal protocols and why some food is better for you than other food when it comes to weight reduction. (These protocols are always important to review with your doctor in case you have any allergies).

The class will be two weeks long:  Tuesday, September 17 and Tuesday, September 24 from 6pm-8pm.  The cost is $250 per person.

What Sets Us Apart from Other Day Spas

We have music piped outside so that all guests in Paso walking by may enjoy a little more relaxation.

Fun Fact

Do you know that real, wholesome food help keep us healthy?  Bees pollenate many of these foods, and yet their colonies are being destroyed by mites.  If you know someone who keeps bees, encourage them to treat bees once a year with either organic mite treatment or specific essential oils to destroy the mites.  You can help, too, by planting more flowers, or flowering bushes, outside your home that aren’t sprayed with pesticides.
