"Whole-istic insights" on wellness, career & service.

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!)

Where Balance Begins

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.

 

I stepped on the scanner, and adjusted my sweatpants for the cameras. (Apparently my Care Bear socks did not...

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.

Being among the trees was truly magical.

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

“You are what you eat - so don't be fast, cheap, easy, or fake.” 

I'll always remember when my dear friend Matylda (who is from Europe) called STRAWBERRIES a "treat"! Sadly that sounded a bit foreign to me at the time. Like many children from the U.S., I had grown up yearning for candy, cookies, donuts, and cake. But are those...
