My First Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy Experience!

When I scheduled for the Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy at in , Connecticut I admit, I was skeptical. The idea of having someone’s feet massaging me for an hour intimidated me. I did not know anything about the massage therapist so I didn’t want to offend anyone, it’s just that I had never had this service before and I had no idea what to expect! Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is the American adaptation of a treatment originally from the Philippines and then from India. The American treatment was founded by Ruthie Piper Hardee who was born with both scoliosis and mild spondylitus. Combined with the constant leaning over to give […]

Resolve to Lose…Tips for sucessful weight loss

The desire to lose weight must come from the individual. If you’re truly ambivalent about making changes in your lifestyle or are doing this to please someone else, you’re likely to fail.

Happy Feet…Even in the Winter!

Arriving for my Footlogix Pediceutical treatment I was pretty sceptical. I did not believe that even in the Winter, when all of our feet are dry and damaged from the cold, my feet would feel soft and wonderful again. Usually I hide my feet all Winter long in the comfort of my socks and boots and don’t even think about getting a pedicure…but now I am a changed woman! “Where Medi meets the Pedi!” Jess explained. She swears by this pedicure (and so does everyone else once they try it themselves). First she helped me pick out a fabulous color, “Diva of Geneva” by OPI and then we began to […]
