I’m a big fan of detoxing, and I usually do some sort of juice cleanse at least every six weeks to keep me feeling healthy. Basically, I don’t eat for five days, drink the designated juices, get really crabby, but then feel super healthy afterward. But I just came across an email from Bauers Palladio Spa in Venice that made me think a trip to Italy might be the way to go. The spa offers the following treatments created to help guests detox and de-stress:
• Anti-Stress massage: This 50-minute treatment includes the application of hot oils to help spa-goers get their circulation flowing.
• Zen massage: A 90-minute massage makes use of both stretching and pressure point work to balance the body’s psyche.
• Fresh Lemon Bath: For 30 minutes, guests relax in a bath filled with fresh lemon juice and detoxifying Himalayan salts.
• Purification Rite: Spa-goers can spend 80 minutes getting a deep-body cleansing, an exfoliation using marine salts, and a purifying mask of seaweed.
Although no one needs to remind me to stay out of the sun, I know I’m an exception to the rule, a rare breed who seeks shade over sun any time of the day. However, for those who crave the sun’s rays, there are now a number of apps from Appitalism.com, a mobile app superstore, to help protect them from getting burnt to a crisp. Share these apps with your summer-loving clients, and their skin will thank you for it…
