Take it off this winter!

Posted by: info | Post Date: February 16, 2016 | No Comments
It may be cold outside but it's still important to it take off... that is the build up of heavier skin care products we use during the winter. While these products are necessary to properly hydrate and protect our skin in the winter, their effectiveness is improved by regularly exfoliating your skin and undergoing skin treatments that are specifically designed to nurture our skin in colder climates. Sometimes a visual inspection in the mirror will indicate dryness but skin damage is best detected by a professional aesthetic analysis. So this time of year, bundle up but also peel off the layers through exfoliation to help maintain younger, more vibrant loo...

A Poem for January

Posted by: info | Post Date: December 31, 2015 | No Comments
When Summer's blue sky fades to grey, And swiftly ends the shortening day; When coldness takes the flowers away, I'll dance the dance of winter! Over hedges see me trip, To frost the leaf and haw and hip; To petrify each sparkling drip, And dance the dance of winter. I'll fade the roses red to white, Re-dress the landscape in one night! Make the cobwebs crisp and white, And herald in the winter. I’ll tiptoe over lawns and trees, The water pipe I soon shall freeze; I'll bring transport to its knees! And turn all things to winter. In leafy Hollows, see me hide, I herald in the Christmas tide; Where man keeps snug by fires inside, While outside, I am winter.

Leaves – A poem for November

How silently they tumble down

And come to rest upon the ground

To lay a carpet, rich and rare,

Beneath the trees without a care,

Content to sleep, their work well done,

Colors gleaming in the sun.

At other times, they wildly fly,
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air,
Till all...

Get Happy to Get Healthy!

This summer many of us have the “Happy” song by Pharrell Williams playing in our heads, or we’re hearing it on online or listening to it over the airwaves. For some of us it brings back memories of Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” song and we cannot help smiling. And why not? It’s finally hot and most of us are happy in the heat… especially when we remember the long, cold winter and cooler than normal spring of 2014. There is now research that connects happiness to improvements in health and wellbeing. Living in southern Ontario, we have a lot to be happy about. It’s hot, but there’s no drought. We disagree, but we are not at war. Fresh food can be expensive, but it is available. There are always situations that can bring us down but thankfully there are people, events, songs, poems, happenings and our own minds to lift us up! One of the easiest proven ways to increase your happiness is to increase your gratefulness. According to Dr. Anjuli Srivastav...

Love Heals

By Dana George-Berberich

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” -- Nelson Mandela Love is more than a rush of endorphins to the brain, more than a sappy song or tear-stained pillow. Love is a necessity – like air or water. Babies deprived of love fail to grow, to develop normally. Lives devoid of love wither and dry up. The great news is we are all capable of loving. Even the most tired, used-up, hurt human being can feel a flicker that turns into a fire of warm emotion. It may be directed at a child, partner, friend, or even a pet. The human ability to feel love can be expressed in a multitude of ways and each one of them has healing properties. Love boosts those “feel good” neurotransmitters in the brain that con...
