LED Light Facials

LED Light Therapy (Light Emitting Diode) is wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep. LED was first developed by NASA and has a beneficial effect on skin cells. The benefits of LED on skin have been carefully studied in many published reports since 1987 and are now being introduced in day spas and medical spas to treat a variety of skincare concerns.

Why do I have constant back pain? Why do I seem to sleep on my neck wrong every night? The answer to these common questions is simple – ergonomics. Ergonomics is the scientific study of how people interact with their activities and their environment with a purpose of improving health, preventing injuries, and increasing efficiency. When you take a closer look at ergonomics and your daily activities you will see that it’s easy to prevent irritating back and neck pain.

At the Office

Back pain is one of the most common work-related injuries and is often caused by ordinary office activities. Slouching in a chair, prolonged activity, repetitive motions, and fatigue result inincreased stress on the body and in musculoskeletal injuries. Simply modifying your body position, posture, and equipment placement will eliminate work-related back pain. First, center your body in front of your monitor and keyboard. If your chair doesn’t offer lumbar support, place a cushion between the curve in your lower back and the back of the chair. Then, adjust the height of your chair so that your legs are at 90-degree angles with the floor and your arms are at 90-degree angles with your keyboard. Place your computer monitor directly in front of you so that the top of the screen is slightly below your eye level. Lastly, keep your key objects, such as the computer mouse, telephone, staple, etc., close to your body to prevent unnecessary stretching.

At HomeSitting-Posture

When we finally have time to relax our tired bodies we are often injuring our muscles. After a long day, it is too easy to lay down on the couch to watch a television show or hop into bed with a book. However, when we do these things our body positions are straining our muscles. Slumping in a couch will put an unnatural strain on your spine. Remember to watch your posture and always place a pillow behind your lower back when you are feeling a lack of lumbar support. Also, positioning yourself directly in front of the television will eliminate the need to rotate your neck. When reading in bed, the most important thing to do is to elevate your reading materials so your shoulder, head, and neck are not forced forward. Investing in a bed-reading pillow will quickly relieve all your muscle pain.

In Bed

Considering that you spend six to ten hours in bed, it’s essential to find a sleeping position that prevents neck pain. Two simple ways to get rid of neck pain and improve your quality of sleep are the right pillow and the right sleeping position. Finding a pillow that keeps your neck in a neutral position, a position in which the slight curve of your neck is not changed, will surely benefit your body while sleeping. Moreover, if you are sleeping on your stomach, STOP! Stomach-sleeping arches your back and forces your head to turn into an unnatural position. To relieve tension in your spine and neck, try sleeping on your back or your side.

Despite our greatest efforts to improve our daily ergonomics, neck and back pain may still persist. An effective way to combat these pains is through regular massage.

Happiness is special because it’s entirely up to you to determine what makes you happy and to identify that happiness.  Maybe happiness to you is a silly childhood memory.  Maybe it’s a special story of a beautiful place or person in your life.  Maybe it’s that moment every morning when you get to work, sit down, and take that first sip of coffee.  Or maybe it’s the thought of quitting your job and traveling the world.

dancing-woman-sunset-sunshine-happiness-prezent-moment-nowOver and over again we do not recognize all the happiness that is surrounding us. We can look at our memoires and feel no sense of joy or accomplishment. We can go through our daily routine and easily overlook countless reasons to be happy.  But why would you do that when you can choose to be happy? Choosing happiness is healthy, fun, and beneficial to those around you.  It can make you dance, laugh, scream and even cry.  Happiness is beautiful.

So often we fanaticize about living a life full of perpetual happiness.  We think about how great it would be if we lived with a heart exploding with joy and a constant smile on our face.  With the celebration of Happiness Happens Month this August, we are reminded that happiness is not just a dream but also a reality.  Throughout this month, people are encouraged to act upon their happiness by identify and expressing individual happiness and accepting and congratulating others in their personal happiness.  We should all embrace joy and help happiness happen with those around us!  This month we should strive to experience happiness – to taste, touch, hear, smell, and feel it on a daily basis.

A great way to get in touch with your personal happiness is through mindfulness mediation.  Mindfulness meditation helps us to be present with whatever is happening in our lives, no matter what it is.   It’s an openhearted way to find your own happiness!  Simply sit down, pay attention to your breathing, and when your attention wanders, return.  By following these simple steps, you can get to know yourself up close and personal.  Give it a try!

The science of happiness is increasingly suggesting a strong link between happiness and health.  Check out this list of health benefits that are caused by happiness!

  • Adds several years to life expectancy
  • Better sleeping habits
  • Lower heart rate
  • Lower levels of stress hormones
  • Lower levels of cytokines that are markers for disease
  • Lower rate of heart disease
  • More immune boosting blood cells
  • More emotional stability
  • Better sleeping habits
  • Stronger relationships
