Welcome to Wellness

Welcome to WellnessFebruary 2013

DRUM ROLL PLEASE……the BellaZenn SalonSpa has officially moved to our new location at 515 North Seventh Street. We can’t wait to show off our lovely space and start serving you here! We were glad to see several familiar faces at Women’s Weekend for the Herbal Medicine Chest Essential Oils class and the Art &Wine Tour. We’ve heard a lot of ladies were buzzin’ about Bella…Thanks for all the support!

We remain Medford’s first 100% non-toxic SalonSpa, and will continue to carry the quality hair and skin products you’ve become familiar with. Naturally, we’ve added a few new things too.

In our Eco-Boutique you will find more locally, or Wisconsin-produced, skin care, jewelry, candles, tea and other treats…great gifts for men or women of all ages…or just for pampering yourself. One new line is “Fruit of the Vine” which features soaps, skin creams and body oils; all with organic, chemical free ingredients and scented with pure essential oil. They have a special baby bottom cream and even soap for cleaning your pooch as muddy spring weather approaches.

As we mentioned last month, our newest team member is Terri Hubbard, a certified Aromatherapist, as well as an RN of over 30 years. She is excited to offer a new SALONSPA SERVICE TO EXPERIENCE called The Rinnovo (Be Renewed); a total back and foot treatment combining 14 therapeutic essential oils, designed to enhance wellness by relieving pain, relaxing muscles, relieving stress and boosting immunity. It may be received solo or can be combined with a traditional massage session if desired.

Here are our thoughts about a GOOD FOR YOU ACTIVITY to chase away the winter doldrums. Take that stack of gardening and seed catalogs that have been arriving in the mail like flocks of returning birds, carve out an hour (or two) for yourself, and sit down with a relaxing cup of tea. Might we suggest one from our new line - Fava Tea Company; Roasted Almond Chai is one of our favorites. It might be too early to start digging in the soil, but just the right time to consider a new perennial, design a little herb garden, or plan a rainbow of vegetable varieties.

In lieu of a GOOD FOR YOU RECIPE this month, we thought we’d share some information about a healthy addition to anyone’s diet. Have you been introduced to chia seeds yet? Chia seeds, most popularly known as the sprouted hair of a Chia Pet, have been used medicinally and as a food source for centuries by the ancient Mayans, Incas and Aztecs. This “superfood” was considered so powerful that it was believed to be more valuable that gold. This seed is full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and protein. Aside from chia being a nutritious food source, it may also help balance blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol. These powerful little gems, with a slightly nutty taste, can be sprinkled on salads or added to smoothies…YUM!
