Steps to a Healthy Lymphatic System

I want to shed some insight into one of my favourite body systems, our body’s defense system- “The Lymphatic & Immune System” WHAT DOES THE LYMPHATIC (LYMPH) SYSTEM DO? It is the body’s internal drainage system, designed to provide vital resistance to many threats including infection, diseases & malfunction of our internal processes. It’s a fairly complex system, but to simplify, I like to think of the lymphatic system as a garbage truck that pulls junk away from your organs and the spaces between your cells and into the lymphatic channels, or highways, so our bodies don’t become toxic waste bins. WHAT IS LYMPH?…

Makeup – An Expression of Self

Makeup - An Expression of Self Written by Laurel Beatty  (Esthetician & Make-up Artist at Spa 901) Makeup is often misperceived as a means to cover one’s imperfections.

As young as twelve, I was experimenting with makeup. I had every color of…

Because touch has reciprocal benefits, my own stress is eased…
