"Should I Vax, or Should I Go?"

Vaccinations can be a controversial topic But they effect us all, so we should learn to hear each other's views. Whether that's: 

  1. An inflammation scientist in my dance class told me the flu is on a STEEP rise this year, and she's a huge fan of the flu vaccine, or ...
  2. The Weston Price Foundation released this quiz about vaccinations (which I'm keen to fact-check)

Dry Scalp?

I'm going DEEPER into the "wellness" theme, to simplify & purify life - from the inside out, and from head to toe. For example - when's the last time YOU thought of the hair follicles on your SCALP?

(Never? Oh right ... there's SKIN on my HEAD, needing TLC too!)

  1. Remove oil and product build-up 
  2. Exfoliate dead skin/ ...

Where Balance Begins

If you experience imbalance in your body, it could be generating from... your FEET.


I recently felt discomfort in my left foot. So I found a shoe store with an Aetrex Foot Scanner - which "combines 3D imaging, machine learning and precise sensor technology to capture data," assessing how we distribute our weight.

Does Your Fascia Need Smoothing!?

A friend of mine recently told me about The "Fascia Blaster" - invented by Ashley Black to smooth the body's fascia, that can get tight, bunched, and appear dimpled. (As seen in the diagram below, from AshleyBlackGuru.com)

Curious, I researched a bit more about Ashley's "business origin story." In short, Ashley was using her prototypes to help athletes with sports injures, and soon discovered that they also helped smooth the appearance of cellulite... (So while it has...

Self-Help Tip #51: Go Outdoors

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers. 

(Heatwaves aside) summer is a beautiful time to get outdoors! The highlight of my summer was attending the MassQ Ball co-hosted by my friend Daniel Callahan.
