#Acupuncture Facelift, what is it and does it work?

 

 #Acupuncture Facelift, what is it and does it work?  IMG_4859 Acupuncture Facelift, what is it and does it work?  I had to give it a try, its natural, no chemicals NO cutting, sound right up my alley, this type of facial facelift has been praised in VOGUE (http://www.vogue.com/871420/vd-maggie-betts-is-obsessed-facial-acupuncture) I sought out the best in the biz, her name is Darien Lamb, RN, LAC, MS she was highly recommended. When I first  met Darien,  I was impressed by her credentials, and institutional  knowledge, she treats the whole body, not just the face. I had my first appointment  at  Nicholas Day Spa, in Pelham NY http://nicholasdayspa.com she explained the treatment in detail, its natural way to help the aging process a cosmetic facial acupuncture is a healthy alternative to invasive Western medical injectable, fillers, and surgical procedures. it enhances muscle tone, strengthens and firms skin appearance, and improves overall health and well-being. The treatment takes 10 visits to see the full results, but I immediately felt the relaxation effects from day one, and saw the cosmetic results after the 3rd visit. The lines were softer and plumped.  This cosmetic facial acupuncture left me looking and feeling relaxed and glowing. It is an effective treatment for people of all ages. Western Medicine (WM) views cosmetic facial concerns like wrinkles, loss of muscle tone, sagging skin, and skin problems as the result of factors such as habitual muscle movement, aging, genetics, and climatic factors. Although Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) agrees with Western Medicine, more importantly, TCM believes that aging is directly influenced by physical, emotional, and spiritual health. As I relaxed on the table with acupuncture needles in my face and legs, I felt a deep relaxation come over my entire body, it was hypnotic. After a section I felt like I had just woke up from a nap.IMG_3263

 Before the treatment I did have a comprehensive exam which included  questions concerning your digestion, sleep patterns, diet, stress level, family health history, and cosmetic concerns. The practitioner looks at the tongue, feel the pulse on your wrists, and possibly press or massage various body parts. She will inserted fine, sterilized acupuncture needles into specific acupuncture points on your face and body. The purpose of the treatment is to restore internal health to naturally lift, tone, and strengthen muscle integrity and skin. The result is healthy toned face muscles, tighter skin, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, refined skin, even skin color , and improved health and well-being. I love before and after pictures, check out these!IMG_5031IMG_5036

IMG_5038I highly recommend this treatment not only for beauty but for internal relaxation and all the health benefits that come with acupuncture. When you feel good you look good, and when you look good you feel good.Make a apt at  Nicholas Day Spa,203 Wolfs Lane 914 738 3838 or 140 Lockwood Ave, New Rochelle

No Girl Scout Cookies this year, taking a break, from the battle field and giving my peeps a break!

I am making a donation to my daughters Girl Scout troop and calling it a day! The troop will gets more money that way!

 
refusebuygscookies_sized

I am taking a break this year and not because the Samoas aren’t called Samoas anymore (they’re now Caramel deLites), and I certainly do not have anything against the Girls Scout organization because we are a participants. I am just taking a break and here’s why.samoas1

When parents sell the cookies for their kids, I honestly feel as an entrepreneur that the kids lose the valuable lesson of selling and running a cookie business. I have bought over 50 boxes in the past just so my daughter can get the badge and we support the troop. We also have gone door to door and sold.  I see people haranguing, friends family and co-workers to buy. Maybe they should just ask for a donation for the troop. I know being a Girl Scout that that every troop likes selling a lot of cookies, but the reality in Westchester according to The Heart of the Hudson, for every $4.00 box sold  only .70 goes to the troop. This is one reason why I am going to forgo selling,  forgo walking around door to door with my daughter and just make a donation to the troop. The troop will then have more money and I will have less responsibility. We have already learned cookie selling skills from participating over the past five years selling for The Girl Scouts of America.

images-17 images-2I know she wont get her 100 cookie badge or the applause from the troop but I do think this is what works for us this year.  Friends and family, will have no problem finding the cookies in this over saturated GS cookie sale war zone. I love the Girl Scouts, but its business they are not going to turn down the sales, but I think they agree according to my research.

 When parents sell for the girls:“It’s a constant source of conversation,” said Michelle Tompkins, manager of media relations for Girl Scouts of the USA. “We love that the parents want to help their kids. There’s no malintent, but it is selling the kids a little short, not letting them learn the skills they want to teach.”goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and ethics, according to the Girl Scout cookies website

In NYC offices some buildings are becoming a cookie war zone. One woman told me she has to buy from four different women because they are her friends and she bought  from them last year. She said "I feel obligated, even though I do not want the cookies." Another father said the first thing his daughter says when he walks in the door is "HOW MANY DID YOU SELL DAD?". I think that says it all. 

I am an entrepreneur and do have a website for my business G2 Organics, but I do not think it's smart to set one up for cookie sales. There is also the threat of hackers who often view non-profit organizations as prime targets, said Akli Adjaoute, chief executive of the San Francisco-based security firm Brighterion. Compared to banks and mega-retailers — whose systems have been compromised in recent years —  criminals assume that non-profits "have no resources and no heavy investment on security,"  Adjaoute said. "And they're right." Im a mother and always a Girl Scout but this year, my gut tells me save the calories and make a donation.cookie-sales-kit-inside
