Foot Massage

Foot Massage
Foot massage is one of the most unbelievably relaxing. Foot massage is a great thing. Foot reflexology is "pressure therapy" and involves applying focused pressure to certain known reflex points located in the foot to cure or prevent disease. Foot reflexology is based on the premise that our nerve zones or reflex points go from the bottom of our feet to the top of our head, encompassing all vital organs on the way. Thai Foot Massage is a massage of the lower legs and feet. Thai Foot Massage stimulates these points to promote general health and well-being. Thai Foot Massage takes it’s origins from China art. thai massage balances the elements of the mind and body, while thai foot massage stimulates the internal organs, giving the receiver an holistic treatment.

There are various creams and oils that can be used for a foot massage. However, we recommend the use of essential massage oils to achieve an ultimately relaxing foot massage. Giving a foot massage only requires a pair of feet and someone to give the massage. Oil or lotion can be used, but it's not necessary. A foot soak with a cup of Epsom salts dissolved in a gallon of warm water is a wonderful way to de-stress before you begin the foot massage. Dry thoroughly, including between your toes. Try to give equal attention to both feet, as the body abhors asymmetry. There are many foot massage techniques releif feet. Stroking massage techniques stimulates the blood vessels in your feet and promotes gentle heat. Hold the foot in your hands and begin to massage the top surface of the foot.

Use your thumbs in a slow, firm stroking motion, starting at the toes and moving up to the ankle. Another massage techniques ankle rotation. Firstly, gentle move the ankle side to side to loosen the ankle joint. Rotate the foot clockwise and anticlockwise 3 or 4 times to relax the foot from the ankle joint, reversing the directions will calm and de-stress your senses. Kneading massage technique uses the knuckles at the second joints. "Knead" the area like dough with large pressing, rotating movements. Other foot massage technique is pivoting. Gently hold the foot in you hand and use the other hand to massage the sole of the foot with your thumb. Pivoting can be a very relaxing especially if you vary the amount of pressure being applied to the ball of the foot.

Foot Massage Tips

1. Soak your feet for about 10-15 minutes in lukewarm water with a few drops of peppermint or lavender oil.

2. Stroke the foot from the cords towards the fingers, first gently then gradually increasing the pressure.

3. Oil or lotion can be used, but it's not necessary.

4. Massage in circular motion using your fingers and your thumb on the sole of the foot.

5. Again massage the sole in circular motion using your thumbs and fingers.

Beauty through the ages - the Wild Sixties

Beauty through the ages-the Wild Sixties

Beauty through the ages - the Wild Sixties

A time of hippies and Twiggy, bell-bottoms and mini-skirts
The 1960’s were as wild as the 50’s were conservative, with political and social upheaval and drastic changes in fashion, makeup, and overall style within a short span of time. The rebellion was originally led by youth on college campuses – the hippie generation, who believed in free love, recreational drugs, and communal living. They had a distinctive look, with loose fitting clothing, bell-bottom pants, and natural fabrics.
Women often went from one extreme to another; one day opting for micro-mini skirts and barely-there halter tops, and the next day donning floor length, shapeless ponchos and yards of fabric in flowing granny skirts. Fashion for the male generation in this group was flamboyant, often including unusual prints in bright colors, layers of clothing, and lots of headbands to hold back flowing hair. Love beads were layered around the neck and hoop earrings of all sizes were popular. Mood rings made their first appearance and many switched from golden hues to sterling silver.
Shoes were more functional than fashionable for both men and women. Both sexes regularly chose earthy-looking sandals or sturdy combat boots. The same applied to handbags, which were often handmade macramé totes rather than the small, compact clutches or handbags of the 50’s.
Hair was a crucial part of 60’s fashion. Flower children preferred to let their hair grow out and weren’t at all concerned with curling or styling their locks, and there was little difference between the way that men and women wore their hair. Long locks were in for both, and many took the look to the extreme. Hairstyles were, for the most part, lacking - long hair was often pulled back into braids or ponytails just to get it out of the way. Bandanas, kerchiefs, and headbands kept it from falling constantly into their eyes while buying another day or two before washing was necessary.
Hair wasn’t the only thing that much of the hippie generation refused to wash regularly. Suddenly, natural body odor was considered acceptable and many flower children conserved water and bucked the establishment by bathing less regularly. Makeup was simple; just lip gloss, or was avoided altogether. The emphasis was on peace and love and not on beauty and style.
While hippies represented the simple life, the rest of the 60’s generation was in tune with the modern craze created in England. Super model Twiggy’s short skirts and closely cropped hair, big wide eyes and unique modern fashion choices caught the attention of young women all over the world. While the flower children went for long hair, the modern woman just as often opted for a short pixie style instead. Wigs also became popular for those women who couldn’t quite achieve the overall look that they wanted. In particular, “falls,” which consisted of very long hair that was attached to the crown of the head and covered over with natural hair, were extremely popular.
While makeup for the hippie generation was simple, makeup for the modern woman was anything but. Foundation was often heavy and skewed lighter than the natural complexion. Blush or rouge, as it was still called by some, was heavy on the apples of the cheeks in a variety of pink shades. The eyes were a major focus for the 60’s. The bigger and wider the look, the better the woman felt about herself and her fashion style. False eyelashes were a must and sometimes included more than a single pair. Suddenly eyeliner was back in a big way. It closely resembled the style once worn by ancient Egyptians because it was drawn around the entire eye rather than just at the top or the bottom. Mascara finished off the heavy, severe look.
Lips were also important, and just about every woman wanted that perfect pouty look that was done so well by the models of the era. Lipstick colors were pale in an effort to make the lips look even bigger, with colors like pale pink and lavender the most popular shades. Some even incorporated a pearlized or silvery look. Natural colored lip liner helped to define the lips well and added fullness to smaller mouths that needed a little extra “oomph.”
Fashion for the other half of the 60’s world was very different from their hippie counterparts. While school fashions remained pretty conservative overall, hemlines certainly made a change; inching well above the knee for the first time since the Roaring 20’s. Outside of school, youth often opted for blue jeans and t-shirts. No longer plain in nature, the new “tee” carried a message - often against the establishment - a symbol of peace, or a colorful pattern. Tie-dye was popular across both sections of the 60’s population.
Those who still wore dresses or skirts headed toward the mini in order to show off as much leg as possible. Women became obsessed with becoming rail thin in order to mimic the most popular models of the day. Many physicians today believe that this decade gave birth to future generations of anorexic and bulimic young women who saw no other way to achieve their weight goal.
Polyester hit the marketplace and many chose it because the fabric required less overall care with regard to starching, ironing or drying; many simply dripped dry and were ready to wear again the next day. The new fabric also took bold colored dyes well and came in the popular psychedelic colors and patterns of the day.
Like their hippie counterparts, this group also liked sandals, although their choice leaned closer to over-exaggerated platforms. Go-go boots also made a major impact on the fashion world that would continue well into the 70's.
No other generation had such a dramatic impact on fashion and style. Many of the trends carried over into the 70’s and some are still popular today.

Jewelry Appropriate for Informal Events

Jewelry Appropriate for Informal Events

Dressing up for a special occasion can be fun. You get to wear a special dress, accessorized with the perfect shoes and beautiful jewelry as well. However, what about dressing for informal events and everyday activities? Few people give close thought to the jewelry that they wear when going to an informal event or for a casual day at the office. While most women would know better than to wear a full drape of diamonds to the office, the rules about informal and casual jewelry are not set in stone. There are, however, some guidelines that can help you choose jewelry appropriate for informal events.

You don’t have to match informal jewelry.
Women often wear matched sets of necklaces, earrings and bracelets or brooches for formal events. Not only is matching unnecessary for informal wear, it can actually be to your advantage to mix and match as long as you follow a few rules.
-          In general, stick with one type of metal unless the metals are mixed in one piece as in a lovely 18k gold and silver weave ring, where a band of sterling silver surrounds a golden basket-weave band.
-          Wear jewelry from the same collection. Jewelry designers like Roz Kwan often create pieces with a coordinated “look” that don’t quite match, but look great together. A great example is a pair of red jade teardrop earrings made by Roz Kwan, worn with a red carved cinnabar bracelet, also from Kwan’s Far East Market collection.
-          Keep the pieces that you choose in balance. A gaudy, chunky necklace can look awkward when paired with delicate diamond earrings but hit just the right note when worn with a pair of 14k gold earrings with hoops carved of a matching stone.

You can get away with whimsy at informal events
Most women wouldn’t dream of wearing a ring in the shape of a parrot to a formal ball, but the parrot ring from the SoHo collection would be perfectly at home at a dance club or an evening out with friends. Luncheons and afternoon events like baby showers are the ideal event for showing off your love of tumbling dice or lucky horseshoes or even a frog created in green garnets, rubies and diamonds.

Don’t overdo it
If you choose a single flashy piece like a 14k gold pendant with a Morro Redondo Bi-Color tourmaline stone, accent it with subtle pieces that will not compete with it. In other words, try to balance things. Do not wear a whole slew of chunky bracelets plus a thick rope of pearls, plus a pair of shoulder-duster earrings. You will just end up with a whole palette of warring stones and colors. Instead, choose one piece that you want to shine and either wear it alone or wear coordinating pieces that do not outshine it.
Conversely, choose a matched set in a more subtle design or style. A triple strand of cultured black pearls worn with delicate black freshwater black pearl drop earrings and a ring set with a single lustrous black pear can make a subtle but definitive style statement – one of elegant, natural beauty.

Don’t forget the unusual jewelry accents
There is more to jewelry than just rings, necklaces and earrings. These days, we tend to forget other pieces that can add to your style and solidify your look. Hair pieces, for instance, are often overlooked when women choose jewelry for wear on an informal occasion, but a set of jeweled combs or a clip set with semi-precious stones can add a subtle finishing touch to an ensemble for a day at the office or an informal afternoon event.
Likewise, consider pins and brooches, which are often seen as far too fussy and old-fashioned for modern wear. Pendants, charms and pins are making a comeback in the jewelry and fashion world, worn on lapels or, more surprisingly, on the brim of a hat or pinned to the flap of a shoulder bag or clutch purse.
Don’t forget that watches are jewelry, too, and add to your overall look. Replace your everyday watch with one designed to accent your outfit or the other pieces of jewelry and watch the compliments roll in. Wear a bangle watch with a suit to the office, or a cuff bracelet watch with a sleeveless shell. A Dolce & Gabbana leather and stainless steel watch can be a signature jewelry piece all on its own, while a simple watch with a full set of interchangeable colored leather straps can ensure that your watch always matches your favorite outfit for the day.
Whatever jewelry you choose for informal wear, be sure to keep the overall look coordinated and in balance. After you have finished dressing, take a look at yourself in a full-length mirror to be sure that your overall look is not cluttered, and that no one piece distracts from your entire look.
