A Healthy Indulgence

Cravings.

Whether it’s for chocolate, theater popcorn, or even celery with peanut butter, we all get cravings.

There’s really no sense to it. Many times the cravings are for something bad for us.

Is there any reason a healthy body should crave something unhealthy?

What if cravings are our bodies shouting up towards reality, our subconsciousness communicating with the rest of us… but what could it be saying?

Those that came before us so many centuries ago had a lot of stresses; stresses we don’t really have today.  While they were worried about death, disease, food and shelter – every single day – we worry about shoveling the driveway, screaming kids, and a world filled with constant noise and chaos.

Our bodies and minds weren’t built for these types of stresses and it probably takes an in-tune individual to know how to stay perfectly balanced in the world we live in… for the rest of us the cravings might just be a way our bodies are reaching out to us, trying to navigate it’s way through all the chaos and tell us something…

What is your body saying?

Your body and mind is fully capable of facing this world successfully, but that doesn’t mean we don’t need a break from the chaos.  A simple indulgence like a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie can go a long ways to help us stay… sane.

Yet even a chocolate chip cookie represents stress, we hear all the time to eat healthier, avoid sugar, avoid butter, avoid oil, avoid eggs.  Yet that kind of stress can be just as unhealthy.

An hour at a spa is more than just an indulgence; spa treatments can melt away weeks and weeks of built up tension.  And afterward, we’ll have a chocolate covered butter mint waiting just for you, a bit of unhealthiness to top your perfectly healthy indulgence.

Which if you ask us, is the best way to live.

Reflexology

Reflexology

When Sego Lily called to inform me that my next treatment would be Reflexology, I nearly did a back handstand!  I was going to say a “footstand”, so it tied in with the post, but since that is my regular position it wouldn’t have been anything remarkable.  And this treatment calls for remarkable!

I’d had a taste of Reflexology on my very first treatment, the Sego Lily Sampler, that I received after I won the contest.  Ever since that, I’ve been looking forward to the full monty.   It may partially be because I am a huge fan of foot rubs, massages, and long hot soaks (or for that matter,  anything at all related to pampering my feet.)  Or possibly because I am a runner and put a lot of miles on these poor feet of mine and they just can not get enough of any type of tender loving care.  But mainly because after a little foot pampering, I feel like a new woman!  All I know is that I was anticipating this treatment possibly more than any other.

I am a sucker for a foot rub.  I have even resorted to paying my boys to rub my feet since they don’t seem to want to do it voluntarily anymore.  There was a time when they did so willingly and happily, but that was before my oldest son’s friend told him he could become a rich entrepreneur if he started to charge me for simply rubbing my feet.  Yes, charging his own mother.  The woman who suffered through nine months of morning sickness and hours and hours of intense and very painful labor in order to bring him into the world.  Yes, his own mother, who risked her very life so he could become an entrepreneur at her expense.  And of course, the tradition flowed down to the other four boys.  My youngest has now found it a great way to barter with me and make deals while basically getting anything he wants if he is willing to give my poor footsies a rub down.

Whatever it takes.

I love foot rubs that much.

I was even more excited when I heard I got to have the full blown 60 minute treatment that also includes the hands as well.  Hand massages were foreign to me until my first treatment with Sego Lily.  But now I’ve discovered they are one of the best kept secrets in the massage world.  They are almost as wonderful as the feet, not quite, but almost. The longer treatment also includes an application of mineral rich heated (yes heated!) seaweed that stimulates the reflex zones and draws toxins out of the body through the feet.

I must make it clear that Reflexology is not just a massage for the hands and feet.  At least not a massage in the typical sense of the word.  It is an ancient Asian art that was practiced 5000 years ago and it is done by applying pressure to stimulate reflex points in the feet that correspond to specific energy zones and organs of the body, in order to restore health and harmony.

I was thrilled that my therapist was Jeff once again.  His hands can sure work wonders on the feet!  He also did a great job in explaining the underlying theory behind Reflexology is there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. Reflexologists call these “maps” and use them to determine which body systems correspond with one another. For example, the tips of the toes reflect the head;  the heart and chest are around the ball of the foot;  the liver, pancreas and kidney are in the arch of the foot; and the lower back and intestines are towards the heel.

Reflexology has a number of benefits.  At its most basic level, it is an amazingly relaxing experience that doubles as a great stress-reliever.  It’s pretty hard to feel any stress while someone is rubbing your feet.  Trust me on that.  Many claim that if the specific reflex points are targeted correctly, the benefits can be remarkable, including relief from migraines, circulatory and digestive issues, sinus problems and more.  I would be more than a willing participant to volunteer for any studies in this field!   In general, the theory is that any organ of the body with a correlating reflex point can be improved through regular reflexology treatments.

A more scientific explanation (as if it could get any more scientific!) is that the pressure created may send signals that balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and stress.

Whatever is going on, I don’t care.   All I know is that it feels wonderful!  It puts me in my zone.  Takes me to my happy place.  Makes me feel like the world has vanished for the time being.  The only thing that could even compare to it, would be to be locked up in a chocolate factory overnight.  In fact, this w0uld even beat that, because if you were in a chocolate factory you still have to use your feet to go find the chocolate.  And if you were using your feet, then they wouldn’t be getting massaged.

This treatment is definitely undefeeted in my book.  I highly recommend it.  It’s heads and shoulders, (I’d even go as far to say feet and calves) above the rest!

Thanks Sego Lily for rubbing me the right way once again!

Sego Lily Essentials Pedicure

The Sego Lily Essentials Pedicure description on the menu reads:

Your nails are expertly shaped, cuticles tended, and hands or feet exfoliated and lovingly massaged, then polished to perfection. For those who receive regular pedicures and are in need of a pick-me-up.

You had me at “pick-me-up” Sego Lily. After a long winter of wearing socks and boots and sneakers and heavy shoes, I was in desperate need of a pick-me-up!  My toes were begging for some air and flip flops and a pedicure was mandatory and essential before that could happen!

I love Sego Lily’s pedicures!  They are the best I’ve ever had.  There is nothing quite like being made to feel like a pampered princess while someone else beautifies your feetsies and toesies!

How often do you get to just sit back and relax in an over-sized comfy chair with your feet soaking in lemony hot sudsy water while you listen to spa music and catch up on People magazine?  Not often enough in my world!

My cute esthetician was Janell, whom I love.  I’ve had her before and she is so fun to hang out with while I sit back , relax, and munch on the most delicious frozen red grapes and lemon poppy seed scones.

Janell gave me a sample of color swatches to choose which color I wanted.  They have every color under the sun (including that color!)  I narrowed it down to a metallic shimmery light pink or a deep red.  I decided to be adventurous and go with the serious red nail polish this time.  I almost always go with a boring French manicure or something purple.

It took some deep thought, but once I decided I went for it!  Red is power and my toes needed to feel powerful after such a long winter.

I could tell my toes were happy and were on board for some serious adventure.

I told Janell how the last time I had a pedicure, I somehow smeared my polish on two of my toes as I was leaving.  Luckily I discovered it before I left and they had me go back to the pedicure room and have my esthetician fix them.  Yes, I was embarrassed.  I told her that this time I took every precaution so that wouldn’t happen again, including not wearing the robe so I wouldn’t have to put my Levi’s back on with wet toes.

I was extra careful in the dressing room and kept my bag away from my toes since I think my bag brushed up against them last time causing the smears.  We joked about how funny it would be if she got a message that I was waiting back in the pedicure room because I smeared them again.

Well, the joke became reality.  Just as I was leaving, I looked down at my toes to take this picture and sure enough…I had smeared my big toe!

Really?    Really.

They called Janell from the front desk but she was in another room.  They had me go back and wait for her in the pedicure room.  As she came in, we both just burst out laughing.

She was more than a good sport about fixing it.  We were just glad it was only one toe.  I promised and offered her my first born if I did  it again before I got home.

This pedicure is accurately named.  It was ESSENTIAL for me!

Thanks Sego Lily once again from the bottom of my sole(s)!

Ionithermie Algae Detox

Ionithermie Algae Detox

When Sego Lily called and told me I was scheduled for the Ionithermie Algae Detox treatment, I had absolutely NO idea what that even translated into or what I had in store.   I quickly did some research and learned that it is one of the newest and most popular spa treatments now offered at spa’s throughout the United States.   It claims to reduce the appearance of cellulite by giving skin a smooth, healthy appearance.   It’s main boast is that it removes toxins while improving your skin condition and firming up your muscle tone, as well as helping you lose inches.  Thus, the explanation for it’s popularity.  The claim is that it can do all this in just a little over an hour.  Shocking, I know.  Literally.  But more on that later.  It was invented over a century ago by a French biochemist and is being used all over Europe and the United States.

Entering the beautiful Midvale Sego Lily Spa

Sego Lilycurrently offers this treatment only at the Midvale location.  No problem for me since I always enjoy going to the Midvale Sego Lily not only because  it is beautiful inside and out, but I always love indulging myself for a bit in the steam room.  There is nothing like relaxing in a hot steamy mist that just pierces through your body and soul to release your tensions and stress.  Ah…  Make that a double ah.  Ah… ah…

Once I arrived, I got changed into one of their purple robes (which I love!) and waited in the absolutely beautiful and relaxing meditation room for my therapist Katie. Katie is one of only two Sego Lilytherapists that is specifically trained to do the Ionithermie treatment. She took me back to the room and began asking me some questions while answering the many that I had for her.  She then gave me a very thorough explanation of what the treatment would entail and showed me everything that she would be doing.

Katie also warned me that this treatment isn’t your typical relaxing spa “take me away” kind of procedure and to not expect feeling too relaxed during it.   So, if you are going into this treatment with the mindset that you are in for a wonderful relaxing experience to calm your nerves, then you need to re-think things before signing up.  This was not a relaxing treatment by any means.  In fact, it was “shockingly” uncomfortable at times.

The detox begins by first deciding which part of the body will be treated.  In my case, I requested  the outer thighs and caboose area.   Next Katie exfoiliated my body with a brush that was a little too coarse for my liking, but I just kept reminding myself that there is a cost for beauty, right?  She also used a vile of a very expensive golden formula, that I decided to call Liquid Gold.    Then a cleansing mixture that consists of seaweed, amino acids, and algae that claims to induce a chemical reaction that decomposes cellulite while releasing the toxins in the fat is applied.  It also claims to stimulate the blood circulation in order to help remove toxins as well.

Once that had been applied, Katie then wrapped the selected areas with cheese cloth and then applied an algae-infused clay over the top.  It would have been much more enjoyable if the clay had been heated.  I do not like anything cold touching my skin! Several electrodes are then placed on the clay, which serves as a conductor for the electricity. 

Katie did a great job explaining the science of it all and how one color was the galvanic current and the other was the faradic current.  She is specially trained in all this and I may have just totally shredded what she said, but suffice it to say, she knew her electrodes!  The galvanic stimulation uses positive and negative ions to remove toxins buried deep in the body while the faradic stimulation exercises the muscles to improve tone and appearance.

She warned me that the electrodes would be producing an electrical  stimulation to my system and that it might  be a little uncomfortable.  She was right.  Every four seconds or so, I would get a real shock that wasn’t really what I would call enjoyable.  I wouldn’t say it was pain per se, but not something very pleasant either.

Katie was able to control the intensity of the stimulation and so we experimented a bit to see what level I was okay with.  I had her crank it up a bit, but immediately had her turn it back down.  A little too shocking for my liking!  It would send a shock through me for about two or three seconds and then give me a break for about four seconds or so before it buzzed me again.  This part usually lasts about 30 minutes, but after about 15 minutes I was ready to be done.

The final step is to remove the clay and materials and apply a soothing lotion all over the body.  Then, if you are intersted, the therapist will usually check to see if you lost any inches.   I didn’t have her do measurements before, so it made no sense to do them after.   I wouldn’t be surprised if I lost a few inches though because my muscles were still tensing up very tightly after all that electrical stimulation!

This is definitely not your typical spa treatment.  I did not leave the room feeling relaxed like I usually do after a spa visit.  Luckily, I had the steam room waiting for me which always puts me in a very relaxed state.  That was the best part of the whole thing.  Heat!  Steam!  Warmth!

This is also a rather costly treatment at $140 per session.  Since results are likely to be better after a series of continual Ionithermie sessions, rather than just one, the overall cost may be quite high, depending on how many treatments you need.  As for me, I think I will stick to a wonderful pampering massage that leaves me feeling relaxed and rejuvenated afterwards.  But since this is a popular treatment, the cost to some is worth it for the confidence and self-esteem boost it may provide.   Losing a few inches after only one treatment is not unheard of.  But according to the research I did, the effects are short term.  It’s not uncommon for the inches to come back, but as far as the other changes, such as increased muscle tone, better skin and balanced hormones, many claim those are long lasting.  I personally had no side effects, though some people do experience skin irritation or redness. 

I left feeling "shockingly" relaxed and ready for a great day. I am sure the steam room had something to do with that!

I do have to add that when I arrived at the spa I had an intense headache, but by the time I opened that door to leave, it had completely vanished.  That was an added bonus. It must have shocked it right out of me!

Thanks Sego Lily for a very stimulating visit!

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy.

Even the word smells nice.

One of the greatest blessings of life to me has always been the wonderful aromas that surround us each day.  I have always been a fan of yummy scents of all kinds.  Maybe my olfactory receptors are just a wee bit more sensitive than others because I can become easily addicted to certain smells.  I used to love to sniff magic markers and model glue when I was a little girl.  That explains a lot I know.  And to this day, I love to take a big whiff of gasoline as it’s going in the car.  Okay, okay, so I know those aren’t exactly the most healthy things to inhale (though I can think of plenty worse!) and luckily I have learned to control the urge…usually anyway.  But anything from cotton candy, to fresh bread right out of the oven,  from a bon fire while camping, to fresh cut grass, can get me all giddy and happy.  Spring has always been my favorite season for one reason…the wonderful aromas in the air.  There is nothing quite as healing after a long hard winter than the scent of lilacs breezing through the air.

There is definitely a power in certain scents.  The science of aromatherapy has become a very useful practice in helping to heal and restore so many aspects of our physical and emotional well being.  It’s amazing how just inhaling a certain aroma can do so much to change how we are currently feeling.  There are scents that produce a deep calming effect and those that totally energize.  I imagine the power of aromatherapy is vastly under used in our world today.

When I call it a science, I mean a science.  I was amazed at the in-depth studies and vast information there is regarding each essential oil and what it has the ability to do.  It’s nice to realize that each essential oil is completely derived from nature.  There are no artificial oils.

When I arrived for my Aromatherapy massage, my therapist Sarah gave me a choice between four essential oils that I had to choose from.  I honestly could not decide because each one had such a great effect on me as I sampled each scent.

I tried to decide not only on how much I loved the particular aroma and it’s immediate effect on me, but also on what it’s therapeutic properties were, which Sarah explained in detail.

I finally narrowed it down to two and thankfully Sarah said she could implement both of them during the treatment.  That was a relief because I would still be there today sniffing one then the other, trying to decide which I liked best.

The massage was beyond wonderful, but the added bonus of the great aromas permeating the room throughout the treatment was very relaxing and healing.  I felt like I was able to relax even more than usual which is always a bonus during a massage.

After I got dressed, I decided to try out some of the other essentail oils that Sego Lily sells.  They were seriously ALL amazing!  I had a very hard time deciding on only one.

Sarah informed me that the oils are great to use in baths, as a diffuser, or to add a drop on your pillow at night before bed, or to mix with water in a spray bottle and use it as a mist in your rooms.

Eenie Meenie Miney Mo...

I can say that it did all that and more.  I felt so wonderful during and after that I honestly wanted it to last all day.  When Sarah told me that we were done, I was so let down I decided that I better go find one that is specifically for depression!  Luckily my sadness was only momentary because the ones she did use on me helped me bounce right back and be ready to face the world once again!

Thanks Sego Lily once again for an amazing and healing experience!  It was beyond scent-sational!
