Oh my aching feet! Crystal Mud Spa Solution: what is it and how does it work?

October 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

What is Crystal Mud?
Nabacu carries a variety of supplements and products to enhance and improve health.  Many clients complain of aching or cold feet, or poor circulation.  One of our recommended products is Crystal Mud Spa Solutions, a packet that retails for $5.  A therapeutic and relaxing foot soak, the Crystal Mud Spa Treatment Pack mixes with warm water to become a soft, viscous solution of tiny gel-like crystals. The density of the mud allows the muscles of the feet to fully relax and rest, while the fragrances relax the senses and mind.  Used on a regular basis, Crystal Mud also will help to combat hard, dry, cracked skin on the feet.

Apply a non-greasy and quickly absorbed foot gel–lavender or peppermint come to mind–to finish your treatment. Your feet will feel soothed, cooled and refreshed!  To reap the benefits of this product, treat your feet at home, then come to Nabacu for a massage by one of its awesome massage therapists!  To peak health!

Dis-ease

October 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

In Chinese medicine, health is the ability of an organism to respond appropriately to a wide variety of challenges in a way that insures maintaining equilibrium and integrity. Disease represents a failure to adapt to challenge, a disruption of the overall equilibrium, and a rent in the fabric of the organism.

The source of disease is any challenge to the body with which it is unable to cope, whether it is a harmful substance or a bad feeling. Disease is a manifestation of an unstable process, a pattern of disharmonious relationships. When defenses are weakened and resources exhausted, a multiplicity of factors conspire to permit illness. The adage, “The man is not sick because he has an illness, but has an illness because he is sick” aptly expresses this view.

Lack of sunlight, depletion of the soil, overgrowth of weeds, all restrict the bounty of the garden. Similarly, deficiency or excess of Qi, inadequate nutrition, or poor circulation of Blood and Moisture weaken health. Too much sun burns the plants, too much wind dries them out, too much water rots their roots. Yet in the absence of light, water, and air, the plants cannot germinate or grow. The climates, emotions, and activities of life are not intrinsically good or bad. It is their excess or deficiency that distorts the pattern of flow.
