Cool off This Summer With Healthy Chilled Soup

At this time of year, it is hard to bake or cook a nice hot meal in your home.  Especially if you are like me and have zero air conditioning. Even if your home is air conditioned our bodies will thank us for a small, light, and cool meal for lunch or dinner rather than something heavy and piping hot like the summer air can feel. To anyone who does not know, I am getting married at the end of the month:) Matt, my fiance, regardless of the heat... is a baking fool!

Myofascial Work with Chris

Hello all of you blog readers; I just recently passed my one year anniversary as a practicing Massage Therapist, and I was promptly awarded my PA state license.   Thank Yinz to all that have graced me with their trust in my first year of practice.  With that (trust) I have been able to grow and develop my skills.  As many of you know I am drawn to Myofascial work, and have been craving more knowledge in this field.

Reiki Infused Jewelry from Beads of Light Now at PCCHH

NOW 10% OFF with the Booking of Any Service!

      

Local artist and Reiki Healer Mala has started offering her beautiful jewelry at PCCHH!  Mala’s desire to directly impact the health and well-being of those around her inspired her to leave her “day job” and form Beads of Light LLC, offering Reiki-infused jewelry.  Mala’s passion for colors, shapes, and textures, is evident in her line of Reiki-infused jewelry.    There is artistry to the way she combines semi-precious stones to create truly unique and organic pieces.   Upon seeing photographs of Mala’s work, a woman commented that “every single piece looks beautiful, in a way that makes you want to touch it and feel it against your skin” and that the “energy of them reads through the photos”, and a recent customer, upon trying on a necklace, stated that she felt beautiful.  There is no greater gift than the ability to make people smile, and as Mala likes to say, look great, feel even better!  Beads of Light jewelry is now available for purchase at the Pittsburgh Center for Complementary Health and Healing, and for a limited time is 10% off with the booking of any service!

Yum Yum Hummus for a Healthy Back to School Lunch

Whether you have little ones just starting school (my Zane will start preschool, sniff sniff), going back or even off to college (when that day comes I've informed my husband I'll be packing myself in their suitcase!) this can be an exciting time of year. You may not even have kids yet still love this time as one of new beginnings. Use these lazy days of August to reflect on the summer and let the warmth heal your soul (keep that warm memory on reserve for our crazy Pittsburgh winters). Then sharpen your pencils and think about the coming change of season and what it means to you.

Hibiscus Tea

 Flower Power: Hibiscus

Hibiscus is an edible flowering plant in the mallow family native to warm temperate climates. The large brightly colored blossoms are rich in flavinoids, carotinoids and vitamin C. It has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and is effective as a mild natural diuretic. In North Africa, Hibiscus tea has long been known to act as a natural body coolant, and Pharaohs once drank this tea to refresh themselves in the desert heat.
