At Vessel Pilates, our mission is to cultivate a welcoming, non-judgmental and supportive space for women, helping them heal through the power of movement, nourishing food and self-care.
Have you heard of dry brushing? It’s been around for hundreds of years and is part of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine that is used for many different things from skin health to detoxing. We love dry brushing at Vessel and incorporate it into our own health routines. Whether you begin by just brushing your face or include the entire body, you’re sure to notice a difference!
If you’ve walked outside (or even looked out your window), you’ve probably noticed that it looks like someone threw pollen around like confetti. Everything is covered in yellow and people are sneezing like crazy. Hopefully it’ll pass soon, but according to meteorologists, the third week of March is the worst for Houston pollen. The next couple weeks may be rough, but hopefully some of these remedies will make it a little easier for you.
Cupping. If you’ve heard of it, you probably picture Olympic athletes (like Michael Phelps) with giant red circles on their skin. Beyond that, you likely haven’t given it much thought. So what is it? Why do people use it? And, how can it help you?
With the New Year up and running, you’re probably ready to organize and get the year started off right. Now is a great time to make some swaps around your house to cut down on toxins in your everyday products. We have spoken before about healthier skincare options and how important it is to consider what you’re putting on your skin each day, but toxic exposure doesn’t stop there.
Do you use essential oils? We love them and one of our instructors, Sarah, knows all about them! We’ve asked her to write a guest post giving a little introduction and offer a few suggestions for oil blends. If you’re interested in learning more, visit her this Saturday at Vessel. She’ll be sharing more information about oil blends at our Shop Small Saturday event!
