Dry Body Brushing

If there is one inexpensive way to increase lymphatic drainage, improve skin texture and achieve brighter, healthier skin it has to be daily dry brushing. Just 3-5 minutes each day can dramatically reduce cellulite, support the lymphatic system in releasing waste and remove dead skins cells, resulting in younger and improved skin condition. The lymphatic system helps to remove waste and dead cells, moving them to the bloodstream for effective removal. While the circulatory system has...

Forget the Fads

Do you feel exhausted by yet another health fad? Sometimes it feels we’re being constantly bombarded by advice on what we should and shouldn’t do.  It feels like yesterday we were packing in the proteins with Atkins and jumping around in step aerobics. Today we’re adding goji berries to everything, juicing our lunch and grabbing a turmeric latte on the way to goat yoga (yes, that is a real thing). Confused? You could be suffering...

Why do we need strong glutes?

We talk a lot about the importance of having stong glutes. But what is it about this major muscle group that's so important?   The 'glutes' are actually made up of three muscles - gluteus maximus, medius and minimus (you can guess the size order) together making up the largest and strongest group of muscles in the body.
