Check out what Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger had to say about us!

Patti Stanger mentions our Lymphatic Drainage Massage as one of her healthy city picks!!

“After losing 20 pounds, Patti taped her fourth season of The Millionaire Matchmaker in NYC.  She shares her favorite healthy hotspots:”

Our Lymphatic Drainage Massage: Uses Exotic essential oils to stimulate, improve circulation, and reduce the appearance of cellulite and water retention. Helps clear a troubled complexion and is recommended before a Seaweed Body wrap. See what other services we have to help minimize the appearance of cellulite

We are also offering Power Plate Training at the Spa to get your body slim, toned, and rid of cellulite!

Power Plate® uses the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week. Power Plate® machines create instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. The principle by which Power Plate® machines work lies in the law of motion. What this means is that one can improve functional force (stability, strength or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body.

The key benefits/functions of Power Plate® include:
  • Accelerates weight loss
  • Stimulates the production of collagen; creating tighter, more beautiful skin.
  • Increases muscle strength and flexibility
  • Measurable increase in bone density
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Decreases cellulite
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduces pain and soreness for a faster recovery
  • Increased production of serotonin “the feel good neurotransmitter”
  • Decreases Cortisol levels
  • Used by numerous athletes & pro sports teams to improve flexibility & performance

Flu season is here early

Please remember that taking a few supplements can boost your immune system. Especially vitamin D (taken with calcium), vitamin C, 5oo mg at a time, zinc (chelated if you can find it), grapefruit seed extract,  and  colloidal silver helps as well. Whenever I feel like I am getting sick I increase my vitamin C to 1000 mg at a time and take it every 3 hours. And I make sure and avoid dairy since this adds to a mucus buildup in your system. This is NO substitute for antibiotics whenever needed. Consult your doctor as soon as you feel it coming on. Dress warm enough too. My girls who work for me in NYC keep getting sick because they are not dressing for the colder weather. Be smart!!!!  😉

Rules For Better Looking Skin

1. Brush your teeth, scrape your tongue, and either use a water pick or floss before you eat or drink anything in the morning after you wake up. This removes the dangerous plaque from your mouth which can cause dangerous disease, along with pimples and break outs. An electric toothbrush is best.

2. Drink a large glass of water with juice of 1/2 a lemon to cleanse your insides before you eat your breakfast. This is like eating off of a clean plate. Your food is better digested and absorbed when it is received in a clean internal environment.

3. Chew your food very slowly so that your digestive enzymes have a chance to coat your foods for better digestion and absorption, followed by elimination. When food is properly digested it is easier to then release the waste through your colon.

4. Wash your face very well with warm water and then rinse with cool water twice a day.

5. Use a clay mask on blemishes every night to help assist the healing of blemish.

6. Drink 1/2 ounce of water for every pound that you weigh daily. For example: If you weigh 100 lbs, drink 50 ounces of water a day. 

7. Try to get monthly facials to professionally clean your pores. If this is not possible, after you wash your face, steam your pores at home with rosemary infused water and then carefully clean your pores. Refer to page 195 in “The Ciminelli Solution, a 7 Day Plan for Radiant Skin” for more at home treatments.

Mind Body Spirit

Today I did a facial on a 30 year old woman from Rome, Italy. She had troubled skin. I thought I would be able to turn it around with this facial. Not ONE blemish came out of her pores. No matter how much I steamed her or used my natural peels and scrubs, nothing was released. I finally asked her if she is the type of person who “holds” on to her emotions and holds a grudge. I asked her if someone broke her heart that she thinks she cannot forgive and she said yes. I taught her a guided meditation to help her release her anger and pain. And while her mask is on, I put a crystal layout on her chakra’s to help lighten her vibration, remove the negative energy and infuse her with divine love. She felt such a lightness of being when we were finished. I hope that she knows that this is the first day of the rest of her life without that anger and hatred. 

If anyone has issues like this and is wondering why they cannot have beautiful skin, please email me. I can teach guided meditation and help you help yourself. This will bring love, joy, peace and beauty to your life.
