Destress with Restorative Therapy
When you have endless days meeting datelines, jumping from one destination to another with several major events upcoming,  you know you need to get your R &R when your muscles feel tight and you are chest- breathing. Multi tasking works me crazy. So what do you do for destress?  Try restorative therapy - massage. You can pamper yourself with a visit to the spa and must do it at home regularly too. 

I went to Celebrity Beaute Spa and was given a relaxing massage with a blend of rare botanical oils from the "magical" African trees Moroccan Argan oil to give my skin a unique concentration of the omegas providing intensive moisturising. Penetrating quickly, it leaves no oily film on the skin surface and encouraging rapid skin repair. Skin feels baby soft!

How do you enhance your massage experience at home
By adding essential oils to massage lotion, aromatherapy massage can be a powerful way for destress. Our nose is attached to the limbic system, the brain segment controling emotions and the nervous system and hormones. As such, inhalation of these essential oil molecules can directly influence physiological and emotional components of stress. For relaxation, use oils  such as geranium, lavender and chamomile.
Massage release endorphins calming the peripheral nervous system. Even the Mayo Clinic identifies massage as a valid medical method to reduce stress and pain. 
Have a warm bath first before your massage. It helps relaxes you pre-massage and opens up your pores. 
Breathe gently as you are being massage. To unwind further, listen to the sounds of your breathing, blocking all thoughts that comes to your mind. Clear your mind for enhanced mind clarity thereafter.

Hydrate with antioxidant tea post massage. 
A "me" session does wonders. And yes, dozing off during massage is wonderful too. Good night! Zzzzz...

Yours always in health, beauty and happiness,
Dee Dee

Real reasons why you must STRETCH?  When you stretch, your muscle lengthens. Muscle lengthening provides greater range of motion ( ROM), which is important to  individuals who have decreased ROM due to injury, a sedentary lifestyle or aging. Increased flexibility will also decrease our chances of injury and helps to enhance sports performance. A well-stretched muscle helps you in the process of recovery after exercise, ridding you of excessive muscle soreness. It also decreases your risk of injury as your muscle and surrounding areas of the muscles become supple and flexible.  Perform Full Body 12 stretches at least 2 times per day, breathing gently throughout.  Do not hold your breath while stretching.  The 12 Stretches is part of the scientific research  by Dr Dee Dee, as covered in this media coverage MORE Benefits of Stretching   - increases  flexibility ,  - for rehabilitation , - increases circulation - blood flow to the muscle increases after a lon
