Facial Promotional Offer:: Newsletter Mention Only

July 28, 2011

This month’s featured newsletter promotional offer is based on Luzern’s Pure Cosmeceuticals.  Below is some background on Luzern and what they’re about.

Our Formulating Principles

Cosmecutical Anti-Aging Actives
In short, Cosmecutical Grade products use active ingredients at higher levels than “over the counter” products in order to get more consistent and significant results.  Luzern spares no expense in formulating with the most effective anti-aging ingredients, no matter how expensive or rare in order to obtain these results.  These are formulating principles we have always held to, and ones that set us apart from other brands.  Luzern products contain an average of 80% Bio-Active Ingredients.  Eight times the average of other brands.

Bio-Swiss Certified Extracts
The “Gold Standard” of Organic Extracts. Pristine, yet harsh Alpine growing conditions cause these extracts to have scientifically proven, higher levels of anti-oxidants and polyphenols, the most essential ingredients in quality Anti-Aging Skin Care.  Bio-Swiss cultivation and extraction, produces bio-available activity with unsurpassed power to protect the skin from the negative impact of chemical and environmental damage.

Preservative Free/Pure Processing
Anti-Aging promises are too often counteracted by harmful chemical additives and synthetic preservatives.  These are used in almost every formulating process.  Avoiding the most commonly used additives such as parabens, petrochemicals, formaldehyde’s, synthetic preservatives, colours and fragrances, can help you avoid irritation, breakouts and the pre-mature aging of the skin.  Best of all using a Preservative Free/Pure Processing system allows us to keep sensitive active ingredients safe, making them more effective in producing superior results.

Reiki ~ A Complementary Healing Therapy

July 21, 2011

Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a simple yet elegant complementary healing therapy that promotes balance of body, mind, and spirit contributing to a healthy and peaceful daily life. Its founder, a Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, introduced Reiki in Japan in the early 1900s.

Translated, Reiki means “Universal Life Energy” and it is this force that provides the benefits so commonly reported by Reiki clients. It uses a technique commonly called Palm Healing as a form of complementary & alternative medicine; sometimes classified as oriental medicine by some professional bodies.

In sessions, clients are encouraged to close their eyes, relax their bodies, and allow their breathing to become deep and steady to support the experience of quiet and receptivity. Reiki practitioners apply a series of light to moderate pressure hand positions working in conjunction with the meridian energy lines and chakras, which normally correspond to the seven major chakras on the body. These hand-positions are used both on the front and back of the body, and can include specific areas. Reiki is usually given first to the head and neck area, specific areas of the body where imbalances or injuries were present would then be treated. Reiki practitioners do not use any medications or instruments.

What to expect in a typical whole-body Reiki treatment:

The Reiki practitioner instructs the recipient to lie down, usually on a massage table, and relax. Loose, comfortable clothing is usually worn during the treatment. The practitioner might take a few moments to enter a calm or meditative state of mind and mentally prepare for the treatment that is usually carried out without any unnecessary talking.

The treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing the hands on the recipient in various positions. However, practitioners may use a non-touching technique, where the hands are held a few centimeters away from the recipient’s body for some or all of the positions. The hands are usually kept in a position for three to five minutes before moving to the next position. Overall, the hand positions usually give a general coverage of the head, the front and back of the torso, the knees, and feet. Between 12 and 20 positions are used, with the whole body treatment lasting 45 to 90 minutes.

As a complementary therapy, Reiki is a highly beneficial complementary treatment. It can be safely combined with all allopathic treatments, even in hospital settings. It requires no special equipment and can be provided in beds or chairs. When other complementary touch therapies such as massage or reflexology are contraindicated, Reiki can be applied to support patients’ comfort and reduce symptoms. There are many anecdotal reports that Reiki has stabilized vital signs for those in ICU and lessened the need for pain medications for several hours after treatment. Enthusiastically, clients report a reduction in symptoms, the restoration of hope, a desire to renew communication with family and medical staff, and a re-connection or strengthening of faith and courage to deal with their current situations.

Concerns about safety in Reiki are similar to those of other unproven alternative medicines. Doctors of medicine and allied health care workers believe that patients might avoid clinically proven treatments for serious conditions in favor of unproven alternative medicines. Reiki practitioners may encourage their clients to consult a medical doctor for serious conditions, stating that Reiki can be used to complement conventional medicine not in replacement of it.

Ethos Spa is now offering a 50min Reiki Healing Session (Price $90) with Michelle on Thursdays only.

A Reiki healing session can be added to any 50 min or 25 min service.
