Oro Spa and Wellness in Osoyoos, BC

Planning a trip to Osoyoos, BC?

I am there right now, and just got back from a wonderful spa visit at Oro Spa and Wellness.

Ahhh,

I just got back from a most pleasant facial at Oro Spa and Wellness in Osoyoos, BC.

The spa is located in the Casa Del Mila Oro Resort, in Osoyoos.

I checked in at the desk, and even though the spa was closed, I was able to get an appointment.

I made an appointment for an Oro Glow Facial- one hour in length for $80.

I was unsure as I usually frequent Spa Utopia in North Vancouver, and didn’t know what this one would be like.

The proprietor welcomed me graciously and walked me into the treatment room. I was left to get ready, then was treated to a most luxurious facial. She was also a massage therapist, and during the mask, she did an arm and hand, leg and foot massage. She finished with a scalp massage.

I looked at the time and she went over by about 10 minutes! It was fantastic.

I left the Oro Spa feeling very relaxed, rested, and rejuvenated. It was amazing!

If you come to Osoyoos and are looking for a great spa treatment, check out the Oro Spa and Wellness at Casa Del Milo Oro Resort.

Breast Cancer in Women Under Age 40

Breast Cancer in Women Under age 40 may not be talked about enough, but here is some information on Breast Cancer in Women Under age 40: Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among American women, and the leading cause of death for women ages 40 – 59. Early detection is key to helping women survive. In fact, according to Cleveland Clinic “More than 90 percent of women whose breast cancer is found in an early stage will survive.” [i]

5 percent of all breast cancer cases occur in women under 40 years old, [i] and when it does it’s often harder to detect and more aggressive [ii] than in older women. Assuming that breast cancer only occurs in older women, younger women often ignore the warning signs and delay treatment. By being proactive and adhering to the following tips women of all ages can reduce their risks, and increase the odds of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment. Breast Cancer Prevention Tips · High Risk Factors in young women § Family history – If someone in your family has had breast cancer § Genetic Mutation – A certain gene is linked to breast cancer risk (BRCA1, BRCA2) § Radiation Therapy – Too much exposure to radiation can increase risk · Starts with healthy habits[iii] o Limit alcohol intake – have no more than one drink a day o Stay active to help maintain a healthy weight – obesity increases your risk of developing breast cancer, especially after menopause o Breast Feed – The longer you breast feed the less likely you are to develop breast cancer, because breast feeding balances hormones, lowering levels of some cancer related hormones. o Quit smoking · Other risks[iv] o Menstrual Cycle § Early menstruation – Females that start menstruation at 11 or younger are at a higher risk § Late menopause – The longer a woman menstruates the longer her breasts are exposed to estrogen § Late pregnancy or never getting pregnant –During pregnancy your estrogen levels are much lower · It is important to have screenings o Start having regular mammograms at 40 years of age (the standard is 50, but EHE recommends 40 years old) o Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam every 3 years o Breast self exam – know how your breasts look and feel normally so if you detect any changes such as lumps or discolorations you can consult a doctor [v] o MRI – Recommended if… § High inherited risk – could be a better way to find tissue and tumors than a mammogram No Matter what age, if your family history puts you at high risk, or you find signs of breast cancer, you should seek advice from your doctor about screenings and possible treatment.

Bikini Ready for Summer

Summer is just around the corner!

Tomorrow is June 1st, that means you have a good month to get in great shape for your bikini, shorts and tank tops.

What can you do in a month to get you ready for bikini season?

Here are some tips on getting ready for your bikini without going crazy or starving yourself:

  • Make a plan! Write down your goals and map out each week.
  • Empty your cupboards. Get rid of sugary snacks and tempting chocolate. You only have a month!
  • Pull out the clothes you want to wear. There is your motivation! Put them on and see how they fit; imagine how they will fit in a month.
  • Log your food. I love food logs/journals or whatever you want to call them. Writing down what and how much you eat can make a huge difference.

If you’re not motivated to do any of those things, give me a call or email! I will be happy to set up a free consultation with you to come up with a four week plan we can do together, in the gym, park, or your home.

Sunny Sunday

Hello all,

 

What a gorgeous day here in Vancouver today!

Sunshine really encourages and motivates us to get off our behinds and get something done.

Get outside and enjoy the extra vitamin D; the sunshine vitamin. Do some yardwork, go for a walk or bike ride, or just get moving outdoors today.

A half hour walk can be invigorating even if you are not moving really fast. You can make it a social occasion by inviting a friend.

Whatever you do, try to be active every day. The more you do, the more normal it will feel to be active regularly.

 

Happy Sunday!
