Having a facial is one of the best ways to take of your skin.  With the change of seasons our skin also changes. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and gives the skin the moisture it needs.  Not to mention the toxins that are expelled when fresh blood is circulated to the surface!  When the skin gets the nourishment it needs, your complexion will be healthier and younger looking.  Triggering the lymphatic system new cell regeneration has taken place.  

A facial can be done every 6 weeks to keep your skin healthy especially if you have problem skin such as acne.  Your skin will be professionally assessed  and specific products will be recommended for at home use in between treatments.

Iris Otterson

Iris Otterson 

Are you “stuck” in your healing journey? 

Iris Otterson will be at Sunrise Wellness Spa October 19 and 20 to provide an optional therapy to you.  Space is filling up so book today.  Call 306-228-2808

Iris grew up on Vancouver Island and attended university in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  She discovered the benefits of holistic healing while experiencing a personal health crisis in 1995. Suffering from PTSD, Iris sought out help beyond the standard western practices and was amazed at the relief and peace of mind, which came from holistic work.  She is trained in several modalities and is one of many people in Canada to be certified in CranioSacral Therapy.  One of Iris’ success stories, where surgery was no longer needed is documented in the book, Working Wonders:  Changing Lives With the CranioSacral Therapy, published by North Atlantic Books

Iris listens to the client’s body, she listens with her hands, thoughts, energy and intuition.  By doing this she can tune into the healing mechanisms and offer assistance.  The clients body is always in charge and may not be aware of the problem or what is needed.  Their body knows the information and transmits it.  

Healing comes from within and our bodies have a natural tendency to heal.  If your body is injured, has a poor diet or environmental influences, then it may not be able to heal on its own.    Iris’s job is to help the bodies natural healing mechanisms and navigate all the roadblocks so the body can do its job.  The treatment is fully client driven.  The client does not need to be consciously aware of what is required.  

The work is very gentle and light.  Movements are never forced on or into the body.  All work is done in a relaxed atmosphere with the client fully clothed, resting on a massage table.

 

Watch for follow up information about Iris and the therapy she does.

MyNetDiary – Weight Management Tool

MyNetDiary Ranks Highest in Independent Study17

October 2013

MyNetDiary PRO and MyNetDiary (free) were recently singled out as the top-rated weight-loss apps in an independent study conducted at UMass Medical School and published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine in October 2013.

The study, authored by behavioral psychologist and weight loss expert, Sherry Pagoto, PhD, and colleagues, included using and rating 30 of the most popular mobile weight-loss apps on the market, available on iPhone and/or Android platforms. Specifically, the study considered whether or not these apps contained any of the 20 behavioral strategies derived from an evidence-based weight-loss program (i.e. weight-loss goals, social cues, nutrition label reading).

“MyNetDiary’s free and paid apps were not only rated the best out of the group,” says Sergey Oreshko, CEO of MyNetDiary, “they blew all the others away. Our two apps each met 65 percent of the study’s criteria and have a 5-star rating. The next closest app to us only met 25 percent of the criteria, and our apps were put up against the other popular weight-loss apps out there, including MyFitnessPal, Livestrong, and Lose It!.”

According to the study, the authors write, “Physicians interested in referring patients to weight-loss mobile apps should select apps such as MyNetDiary that are free and include the highest proportion of evidence-based strategies.” MyNetDiary PRO is built on the same evidence-based strategies as the free version but provides more comprehensive feedback, flexibility, and more technology-assisted tools.

While most of the weight-loss apps studied included features like a barcode scanner or social media component, MyNetDiary’s apps were singled out for having features like a library containing information about weight-loss, exercise, and nutrition strategies. Another technology-assisted strategy few apps contained, but is included with MyNetDiary, is motivational activity tracking. MyNetDiary allows its members to select average activity levels and input regularly scheduled workouts and exercises, which factor in those calories burned toward daily calorie goals.

“It’s important to have a study like this, not only because it’s independent,” says Oreshko, “but it shows that there are a lot of apps on the market and little guidance for the physicians who recommend them and the consumers who use them to know which ones truly work. Just because someone can make an app doesn’t mean it will be a good app. MyNetDiary has always strived to build apps that can make a difference in people’s lives, not just to get the most downloads.”

Battle River Ranch

On Saturday June 16, 2018 I loaded up my van with bedding plants, flowers and perennials from my garden and friends.

It was time to create a rock garden from the pile of rocks and boulders that were left behind from digging the basement of the new lodge.

The weeds had already been treated with roundup.

I arrived at 8:30 am by 9:30 Joel Enns came to help; a trainee and Josiah a student from Lloydminster to complete his 10 hours of volunteer hours. Ernest the director of the camp came to help with our needs. Supplying a water hose, gloves, tools and then a back hoe for Joel to bring a large amount of good soil to add around the rocks and boulders. By noon we started to see the making of a beautiful rock garden.

Our mission came to an end at 2:30 pm. Joel was amazed at the transformation of the pile of rocks that are now a beautiful rock garden. We are very proud of our accomplishment.

We had time to share our stories and confirm how Jesus has worked in our lives. Joel stands so proud being a part of the beautification of the rock garden at Battle River Ranch.   

 

The Duck’s Nest and Sorrow

For days in the early spring I watched a mallard duck and his partner sitting on the road behind the truck wash. The long weekend brought me into my back yard where I notice I had a new friend. A mallard duck. Each time I went into my back yard she would fly away from my garden gate. I discovered she was sitting on 7 eggs.

I learned a lot how she covered up her nest with feathers and leaves. I watched daily to be sure that “Nellie” was sitting on her eggs. She would never stay in her nest when I worked in my yard.

On Saturday June 16 I came home from Battle River Ranch and checked on Nellie. Sadness. Disappointment. The nest was destroyed and 2 eggs were broken. Nellie was gone. 

My friend Ron had lent me his camouflage video camera to record Nellie and her family. We checked the camera and found a critter at the nest. It appears to be a white cat that ate 2 eggs. The eggs would have been hatching and the cat most likely came upon an easy meal. My friends.

I’ve waited days and Nellie has not returned to sit on her remaining egg babies. They were cold to the touch. I decided to open one. Inside I found a fully developed chick. Deceased from lack of warmth from her mother Nellie.

I was so looking forward to seeing the ducklings and watching Nellie lead her family to a water source. Instead the story ends here and my back yard friends are gone.

 

 

6 self-renewal suggestions for the busy practitioner

6 self-renewal suggestions for the busy practitioner

June 12, 2018 By Jules Torti

Self-care. Self-renewal. They are vague concepts we push on our clients for their ‘take-home’ after a massage treatment. It all seems so achievable at the moment – but where to begin? Axe-throwing? A grown-up bouncy castle? As massage therapists, are we taking note of our own homework?

Are we implementing our grand ideas for meditation and Epsom soaks? A quick poll among colleagues usually reveals how infrequently we follow our own advice. When did you last have a massage? Sleep-in? Exercise four times a week? Eat mindfully?

It all starts with a ‘To Don’t’ list. As a Virgo, I’m notorious for making lists. It’s my default setting. To Don’t lists are even more satisfying, though, because they give you permission to say no and be the centre of attention. Don’t turn on your phone. Don’t get sucked into another mindless Netflix series. Don’t give up your long run to take that extra last-minute shift.

Once you start To-Don’t-ing, you’ll be amazed at the time you’ve created to explore, unwind and indulge. Meditation can take many forms and self-renewal doesn’t have to involve yoga or pea sprouts or green tea (unless you like that sort of thing).

Here are six ways to start self-nourishing:

Smooth transition. Kick-start your day with a Green Sparkle Smoothie. Joy McCarthy is the Founder of Joyous Health, a certified holistic nutritionist, best-selling author and TV personality. Her latest book, Joyous Detox, was designed as a plan and cookbook for detoxing naturally every day. Her recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and emphasize specific detox-friendly foods that are simply delicious and fully nourishing.

Sensory overload. Skip Netflix, get a Nature Fix. Florence Williams’ marvelous book, The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative, is the emotional equivalent of Arnica. The lesson is easy to digest: “The more nature, the better you feel.” It may sound folksy, but, after a walk in the woods, I think you’ll agree with her. The sensory appeal of wet earth, cedar, bird song and a panting dog at your side is the perfect balm for all that ails you. We all suffer from “epidemic dislocation from the outdoors” to some degree, and it’s a fun one to combat.

Sensory deprivation. Maybe you want sensory deprivation instead. The Rest Nest Float Club in Yorkville (Toronto) promises the “incredible stress-melting sensation of nothing at all.” Float pods create a sanctuary like no other. Float in 10 inches of water containing over 800 pounds of dissolved magnesium salts. No light. No sound. Here, you can “eliminate sensory inputs” and disappear for 60 seriously tranquil minutes.

Start a stress-free book club. If accumulating CEUs is stressing you out – here’s a winning combo. Start a self-care-focussed book club with a few of your favourite massage therapists. Choose books like Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly. It’s all about vulnerability and imperfection. “Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly.” Brene Brown is the best cheerleader and thought leader to have in your self-care tool-kit. It’s the perfect club starter book – followed by Eat, Pray, Love Made Me Do It: Life Journeys Inspired by the Bestselling Memoir (Riverhead). Elizabeth Gilbert’s cult book and Hollywood movie inspired a ripple audience: more than 50 women who were so influenced by her book that they made radical changes to their own lives. Maybe it will change yours too!

Spin out. Try something new and fabulous like Soul Cycle in Toronto (the first in Canada). The boutique spin studio is synonymous with an amazing playlist, a dimly-lit room and instructors who speak only in soulful, inspirational messages. Instructors go through a 10-week soul-intensive training in New York, so you’re in good hands. The last 10 minutes of class pops a wheelie when it kicks on the party lights and dance music in a gym-meet-dance-club mash-up. It’s $30 for a bike and shoe rental and the price tag includes full towel service, Saje facial products, hair ties, gum and water. Deal!

Stretch and surf. Grab a gang and book a soul-selfish week in Nicaragua. In Maderas Village you can check in to a Yoga and Surf Camp. The math is simple and attractive: jungle + beach + cool cabanas + good eats. “What began as a quest to create a place for friends and family to congregate has evolved into an idyllic boutique resort just off the beaten path in the Pacific coastal hills of Nicaragua. Maderas Village has created a “home for the modern traveler, for thinkers and doers and all of their interesting associates. In fully recognizing that it’s always the individuals that make an experience, we take great pride in our ability to attract and cultivate a community of characters, of movers and shakers, creative professionals, students, travelers, business savants, entrepreneurs, and everyone else in between.”
