ATMAT is back!

What did you do on your Spring Break? For me, I added another tool to my toolbox. I spent the week with some fabulous instructors and colleagues learning Arvigo® Maya Abdominal Therapy. Yep, say that twice or Say, What?!

Arvigo® Therapy is founded on an ancient Maya technique of ABDOMINAL MASSAGE.This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position, allowing for improved functioning for optimal health and wellness. 

Arvigo® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, as well as many common digestive disorders.

This therapy helps:

  • increase blood flow

  • decrease inflammation 

  • move the lymph system

  • increase our vital energy

This helps with many conditions including:

For Men, Women, & Children: 

Digestive disorders (Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease, Gastritis, Constipation, Indigestion, etc.) 
Muscular Tension
Urinary System (incontinence, frequent urinary infections, etc.) 
Varicose Veins
Fertility Enhancement
Post Surgical (scar tissue, recovery, etc.) 

FOR WOMEN: 

Menstrual Disorders (painful/ irregular periods) 

Pre-Conception through Postpartum 
Discomforts of Pregnancy; Birth Preparation
C-section/hysterectomy surgery recovery
Menopause
Pelvic Organ Congestion (endometriosis, cysts, fibroids)
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
Chronic bladder/yeast infections 
Pelvic organ prolapse 

The best part, in the initial treatment, you also learn self-care so that you can participate in your own health and see greater improvement quickly. And this treatment marries with acupuncture quite well. Expect some integration in your next treatment, if applicable, and you will fall in love with it as I have. Make your appointment today!

Taking Care of You this Fall

Blossom Wellness Centre can take care of you from the inside out. Did you know that we also offer Cosmetic acupuncture and cupping as well as waxing and facial services?

We are three different levels of cosmetic acupuncture and cupping:

30 minute facial cupping, 90 minute facial cupping, which includes hot towels, facial stone massage, facial cupping, and a nutritive masque and a 90 minute total facial rejuvenation package that includes, acupuncture, facial cupping, and light therapy. 

Facial cupping increases the blood supply to the face and neck and can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lift sagging skin, reduce edema, and open and drain the sinuses. If being used for cosmetic purposes, this treatment is best performed in a series of 6-10 treatments performed 1-2 times per week; however, you will start to see some improvements in the skin with just one treatment!

Facial cupping is also effective for reducing swelling and pain of the sinus cavities for those affected by allergies. The lifting and suction function of the cups aids in moving congestion and relieving chronic drainage. It relaxes tight muscles of the jaw associated with TMJ and can be very helpful for those who clench or grind their teeth.

Facial cupping also assists in reducing the frequency of headaches, as significant tension in the facial muscles can contribute to frequent and chronic headaches. If performed by a skilled professional, facial cupping has a very low chance of bruising; however, it is not recommended for those who are currently taking blood thinners, as this can increase the likelihood of bruising.

Not only is Darice a talented licensed massage therapist but she is also a licensed esthetician and offers waxing, facials, as well as brow and lash tints. 

Darice has two great specials running for October.

Announcing New Detox Program

Standard Process has just added a 10 day or 28 day detox program. Perhaps you have tried or heard me talk about the 21 Day Purification program in the past. Don’t worry, that is still available, but this new program is just about everything I could have wished for. First off, it is vegan, gluten free and packs a whopping about of 17 grams of protein in a chair flavored shake. And you get to eat real food the entire time you are on the program healthy protein, healthy fats, veggies and some healthy grains. The all-in-one shake helps you remove toxins that can contribute to fatigue, insomnia, digestive issue, food cravings and weight gain, reduced mental clarity, low libido, skin issues and joint discomfort.

I love doing a detox mid summer since fruits and vegetables are aplenty, you can eat a simple fare during the hot summer months and detox from vacation, BBQs and treats.

Contact us if you are interested in our 10 or 28 day detox program.

 

     

     

    Are you ready for Spring?

    Are you ready for Spring? In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Spring is a time for growth and renewing. Spring is associated with the Liver energy. The liver is responsible for the smooth flow of qi (or energy) in our bodies. Just as we take the time to do some Spring cleaning around the house and in our flower beds, Spring is also a great time for cleansing and renewing our own bodies with some healthy regimens that may have dwindled in the winter.

    If you are interested in doing a springtime cleanse, consider coming in for a nutritional consultation. We have a great way you can cleanse your system while still eating. By doing a cleanse, it can remove the toxic buildup from over processed foods and consumption of sugar. You can regain your naturally energy and improve your sleep – in addition to shedding a few pounds.

    To round out your Spring health tune-up, consider acupuncture. Acupuncture can assist in the overall health of your liver. If your liver energy flows properly, you are less likely to become irritable, and your energy restored. The liver is also in charge of tendons; just another reason to start back to walking, golfing or another.

    Get ready for the first long walk of season and enjoy Spring!
