THE ART OF SCULPT(ery)

October 19, 2021

As a sucker for all things wellness and beauty it would be to no surprise that I would fall into the influence of body sculpting. Spending so much time on Instagram I began to see an increase in influencers speaking about a lymphatic drainage massage, and one in particular: @sculptery

I was already familiar with the benefits of a lymphatic draining, and how it applied to those post op. Being a gentle massage that encourages movement of lymph fluids around the body it helped the system remove toxins from the bodily tissues: aka, fix bloat, boost immunity and aid in weight loss. Additional benefits from the massage were improvement in the skin appearance – perhaps a major reason why people choose this as part of a facial.

Therefore, what was so special about Sculptery and how it applies to ‘sculpting the body’? At first, I figured it was a fad, just having multiple influencers do the usual promo shout to create buzz. But as any junkie needing their fix, you bet I made a quick appointment.

Entering the premise, I was greeted by Sarah the owner and specialist that would be conducting my session. She was perhaps one of the friendliest people I had ever come across. As we began to discuss the process she started with the usual, “are you familiar with wood and ice massages?” I smiled and said I did, feeling confident on what I knew.

That’s when I began to be blown away. She knew her stuff. Having over 10+ years in the business, and being a success story herself, she dived into explaining the treatment.

Our SCULPTERYWood Treatment is an exotic unique technique in which custom wood, metal & jade instruments are developed to contour & shape the body & face. Wood Therapy has been practiced for centuries throughout the world in Oriental & Latin Countries where Therapists used wood for therapeutic purposes.

Our technique is one of a kind. After researching the techniques of maderaterapia, we created SCULPTERYWood where each instrument has a specific use to treat an area of the face or body. SCULPTERYWood increases blood circulation, has a sculpting & toning effect on the skin, while increasing the production of collagen & elastin’s. Our unmitigated treatments will aid in cellulite reduction, enhance a lifted buttock, create a contoured waistline, and will aid in smoothing out unwanted bulges. Best part of these treatments is that they are all natural, non-invasive, with no downtime, and you are sure to see results! “

Handing me a pair of disposable skivvies and stepping out of the room, it was time to get started. She began with specific movements, explaining the reasoning behind each. First on my back, then to my side. I found it odd having a mirror right in front of me, but as she continued her process the results were visible and undeniable. I was in in complete shock at the immediate results, and she laughed stating, “I love hearing when they see it.” I kept the rotation as she did the other side and my stomach.

This wasn’t so bad. Suddenly, she reached into a freezer noting, “ok, this is about to be a love hate relationship.” Confused at first, I looked over to see what she meant, and realized she was holding a product named “snatchsicle” which immediately told me, ‘It’s about to get real cold in here.’ Trying to be brave I was taking the ice on my body like a champ, but eventually began to feel the tingles. Luckily, this was towards the end.

45 minutes later, I was standing in front of the mirror visibly seeing the difference. It was so great, that I immediately asked how soon I would be able to come back. She noted this would be possible every other day but noting that it’s not necessary for everyone as all bodies react and show results differently. As you guessed, I made the follow up and 3 days later got the same procedure done. I felt great after but wasn’t sure on how visible results would be to others, until my girlfriend saw me and said, “damn, you’ve lost a lot of weight!” – as if that was not enough, my once tight pants were loose, my skin was tighter, and I just felt good.

Moral of the story? If you are looking for a jumpstart for any weight loss goals, do not hesitate, and make your appointment TODAY! They are local in Beverly Hills, and you will be thanking us later.

Wondering on the downside of the procedure? Well, you mustpee a lot – and the non-invasive procedure will run you up $250+ per session. But hey, isn’t it time you invested in yourself?

Sculptery Boiler Plate

Sarah became well versed in the art of body sculpting through her own tough journey after gaining 70 pounds. She researched non-invasive beauty treatments that would help with weight loss and came across wood therapy. After one treatment, Sarah was underwhelmed. Convinced there had to be a better method, she started training in several body sculpting methods. NOW, with over fifteen certifications dedicated to her craft from master trainers with medical experience in locations like Colombia, Brazil, Thailand and more, she is proving herself to be an unstoppable force. Sarah’s motto: “You can’t beat the person who refuses to give up.”

Sarah’s father is a renowned, retired plastic surgeon who helped her further understand the human body and how the skin reacts, fat cells, cellulite, etc. Sarah took this knowledge, alongside her bachelors in international business at San Francisco State University and created what we now know as the Sculptery technique.

Sarah is currently three times certified in radio frequency, cavitation, vacuum therapy, laser liposuction. Some of Sarah’s specifically recommended services include:

  •  Masters of Wood & Ice body Sculpting

The Art of Sexual Wellness With Sex And Good

March 25, 2021

Our dearest Robin Levine of Charlotte’s Book, (which is the way cooler, smarter and more bad-ass big sister to GLA!) created this article for us to share some insight and circle back to her new line of women’s sexual wellness supplements we are over the moon over – Sex And Good.

I truly believe that your sexual health and hormone wellbeing is just as important to maintain as other parts of our health. We take vitamin C, zinc, and a whole host of other supplements as part of our daily health routine – but what about our sexual health routine? Why aren’t we prioritizing that? It’s one of the easiest ways to relieve stress, improve sleep, and improve your overall happiness.

According to the CDC, sexual health is defined as “a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality.” Health expert Samantha Blakney explains, “it is often assumed to be the lack of disease and dysfunction, but it’s so much more than that. It’s actually a positive and attentive approach to your sexuality and the sexual relationship(s) in your life.”

Other than the acts of sex itself (which Samantha explains can be so powerful that studies say it can even treat migraines!), creating sexual health involves having your body, physically and mentally, operating at its optimum hormone health and libido levels.

Women’s health advocate Carole Radziwill believes “Sexual wellness should be a woman’s top priority. It impacts everything in her life – from sexual vitality to mood to aging. Healthy libidos and sex hormones play an important role in maintaining not only sexual health, it also impacts skin aging, as well as brain and bone health.”

We spend so much time on all of our beauty routines from eye creams to serums, but ignore the core of our female health? What about feeling good sexually?

Sam Blakeney explains, “the right combination of omega-3s is necessary for hormonal balance in women. She recommends taking the Sex and Good ‘oh-mega’ yummy gummy because this specialty blend of omega-3 essentials — a mix of omega 3-6-9 (Alpha-Linolenic Acid, Linoleic Acid, and Oleic Acid) — will specifically:

  • Raise dopamine levels in your brain to trigger arousal
  • Increase female lubrication
  • Improve circulation and feelings of sensation by fighting plaque in the arteries

Who doesn’t want to feel happier, have a better sex life, sleep better, and be less stressed? But we often ignore this basic part of our wellness because our own sexual wellbeing is quickly put to the wayside – everything else seems to take priority because sexual wellness is almost perceived as either taboo (we don’t want to talk about it), or it’s just assumed that as we get older, this is less and less a part of our lives. When in fact, this is when we should be prioritizing it even more.

Talk to your partner with the Sex and Good Journal (or even journal yourself), supplement with the right routine, and start taking control of your own sexual health and wellness.

Embody Retinol And ACV Gummies

March 5, 2021

The gummy biz is really just taking off. And now, EMBODY is the world’s first retinol gummy with a mission to radically evolve how women treat their skin. They are replacing hundreds of skincare products with one simple tasty gummy. Even better, Embody is a women-owned, minority-owned, women-led brand.

Just two a day (it’s hard to eat only two – they are THAT yummy), and your skin will appear more evenly pigmented, texture is eliminated, and collagen production is increased resulting in more youthful looking skin to produce a luminous glow.

Also right here on Amazon!

A formula designed to provide a dewy glow, reduce blemishes, promote cell turnover, strengthen hair, skin, nails and prevent premature aging (inclusive of ingredients like Vitamin A, C, D3, E, Biotin, Folic Acid, B12 and more). 

A juicy apple-flavored, inside-out wellness solution is designed to support healthy gut flora, improve digestion and replenish antioxidants. Supporting your gut health helps relieve inflammation in your skin and throughout your body; poor gut health can actually be the cause of acne and aging in the skin (it breaks down collagen!!).  Embody‘s ACV gummy provides the full recommended dose of ACV in just 2 gummies!

While Embody’s Retinol Gummy helps to promote skin cell turnover, the ACV gummy promotes gut health – while both add to the whole body approach to skin care. Most consumers don’t think about starting in their guts (healthy diet, probiotics, gut-supporting vitamins) when some of their skin concerns can be treated with a simple change in diet.

And the ACV Gummy!

 

More about Jenn Chung, founder of Embody:

She worked her way up through her family cosmetics company (Forever Beaumore) from packing boxes at age 15 to stepping in as President at age 24. Seeing first-hand how successful her family’s beauty supplements were in the Vietnamese market, Jenn was inspired to create a brand for women just like her and bring eastern beauty remedies to a modern western audience in a fun, palatable way.
