A Note from Ilana
Pointing the way!!

For the shortest month of the year, February is surely CHOCK-FULL of holidays, raising awareness and notable observances! On “Valentine’s Day” love and romance fills the air during this month which also includes Heart Health Awareness, Black History and Presidents Day in which we tap into our health and humanity to observe and honor. However, as we live life every day, without disregarding the joy and importance of celebrations and remembrance, our main focus remains dedicated to advocating wellness practices through education. Education is our roadmap and we commit to "pointing the way"!  
Knowledge, regarding our daily lives and the world around us, is the key to well-being and enlightenment. This helps us build opinions, have a point of view on things in life and living in balance.

Vendor Highlight

How does the Gharieni Group do it?

When designing a spa, there is always great attention to the decor, flow and feel of the space and equipment is generally regarded as functional equipment. Gharieni upends this approach to fully integrate its extensive collection of equipment to the actual design process since it offers custom finishes and upholstery for all its beds and furnishings. So when planning a new space or the renovation of an existing one, make sure to include equipment in the initial planning and below are some recommendations to make that seamless and efficient.
Wellness Feature
Redefining Beauty Sleep
If you skim through any of the glossies or browse beauty websites, chances are you’ll find an article or two on “beauty sleep.” The reason? All-nighter-induced puffy, bloodshot eyes, dark circles and lackluster skin provide a good reason to reach for the arsenal of serums, lotions and potions that serve as a quick fix. But by focusing on sleep’s role on “beauty,” this information dismisses the critical role that sleep plays on the function of our largest organ — the skin.

Hero Ingredient
Sève Bleue from the Ocean

Everyone loves a hero, right? A feel-good story, that sends shivers up your spine, is nothing short of amazing. Heroes come in all forms…..military, first responders, fictional characters, pets, a parent and yes, even a skin care ingredient.
