For most of my life, I didn’t have weight issues. I was always active in sports, I watched what I ate and was a healthy individual. I never had eating disorders or anything aggressive like that, I was just constantly active, on the move and definitely health conscious. In high school, I never was one to hang out with the kids who were experimenting in drugs or alcohol and I drank maybe once or twice, so that was never really part of my life until college.

Spa cheers to health!
Mention the spa and you can almost hear a chorus sighing: wouldn’t that be nice? Let’s face it, most of us dream of a visit to the spa. Whether we have ever visited one or never have set a foot in one, spas never fail to evoke the ultimate, ever-elusive feeling of relaxation and pampering we usually reserve for the elite and glamorous. And yes, isn’t it nice to feel like a celebrity and indulge yourself in a world all your own, even if only for a few hours?
So you’ve heeded the Riddle Wellness weight loss prescription. You’re visiting the gym regularly, you’ve trimmed your diet of fatty foods, maybe you’ve even upped your cardio. But every time you step onto the scale, you don’t see any change. What are you doing wrong?
It can be frustrating to put tremendous effort into a healthy lifestyle and see little results. The answer lies in particular nutritional deficiencies.
Massage. What is it? In the United States, most people look at massage as a therapeutic treatment or as a luxury relaxation treatment. Massage therapy can be dated back to 2330BC at the Tomb of Akmanthor, also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”. In the tomb, there are pictures of two men having work done on their hands and feet. Massage is also referred to in 30 different chapters in the Nei Jing, also known as the “The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon”, where it describes the different massage techniques and how they should be applied for different ailments and injuries. Hippocrates wrote in 460 BC, “The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing.”

I have had many dreams that have come true and recently dreamed of someone with whom I was very close but she suddenly moved without even a goodbye. In the dream she was parked and loading her car very near my home but did not visit. How do I figure out if I have abilities?

The 6th sense, also known as our intuition, is still mired in fear, myth and misrepresentation. We share our passion for what we do and why we do it, and bring a “voice of reason” to a profession that has been thought to be an impossibility.
I thought it would be fun to research the history of “Brazilians,” since this month’s issue focuses on women in history and so many women get waxed nowadays. I have made a career of performing Brazilian Bikini Waxes on tens of thousands of women in the Rochester area and am fascinated with how far back this ritual dates. Brazilian waxing became popular in the United States in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but it is not a new trend. On the contrary, this practices dates as far back as 4,000 years ago.
You are a woman and you are hungry and alone. How do you feel about going out to eat by yourself? There are a bunch of reasons why someone would be eating in a restaurant alone, and none of them are related to the reasons why I typically choose not to eat out by myself. I can count on one hand how many times in my life I have ordered a meal at a table and eaten alone at a restaurant. Guess what? The only person impacted by that decision is me and why am I choosing to miss out?
