Mytodetox

October 26, 2021

Loved my session at Myodetox, (which has officially opened their second US location in Brentwood. I checked out the gorg WeHo location.

Here’s the deal: Myodetox is a unique physical therapy clinic with an ethos centered in the belief that understanding and optimizing your physical health should be a preventative and integral part of your wellness journey  – not simply a post-injury solution. They are focused on improving the way you move so you can continue to do the things you love.  Whether you are nursing an injury, looking to understand pain and/ or trigger points or are simply looking to take your physical fitness to the next level, among other areas of expertise, Myodetox has you covered.

Dr. Nirja,  PT, DPT, RYT, who treated me is a total bad-ass, I’m talking extremely well versed and trained. Top notch. (Side note, I love her Youtube channel with yummy vegan recipes) We did a posture and alignment check, went through my physical history then she did some amazing hands-on myofascial work. My only complaint was I wanted 6 more hours of THAT part. It felt so inredible – I could have had her work on me for much much longer. She showed me some optimal stretches and that was that! I loved it.

Founded in 2015 in Canada, Myodetox is a boutique clinic with a team of expert therapists that provide hands-on therapy and corrective exercises to help people get out of pain and gain a comprehensive understanding of the way your body works, ultimately helping to optimize your physical health.

Each session includes:

  • Full body assessment designed to determine the root cause of any discomfort.
    Posture and movement assessment including:

    • Myofascial treatment

    • Corrective exercise

    • Full body re-assessment

    • Personalized action plan based on individual goals/ needs

The place is stunning, clean, not too clinical, warm and welcoming, all while feeling private and safe.

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?

Meet Kemtai, The Fitness App That Corrects Your Form

October 1, 2021

After spending over a year avoiding crowds and likely also the workout studio and weight room, you might have already leapt at the recent opportunity to return to your gym. But also, maybe not? Working out from home really wasn’t so bad once we started to find our flow, and you don’t need us to tell you about the abundance of at-home workout products, apps, and service out there. (Instagram’s got that covered.) Also, reluctant as we are to say it, Covid isn’t over over yet.

That said, there is one thing that home workouts definitely lack: Feedback. Whether you typically work out with a trainer or even just a friend, it’s always nice to know there’s somebody there to (hopefully) call out your less-than-textbook form when you start slacking.

Well, it looks like there might be a way to finally get that experience from home, too—and it doesn’t require you to add yet another fitness app to your phone’s home screen, or heap any more bulky fitness equipment onto the unruly pile of miscellaneous workout gear in the corner of your living room.

Kemtai is a new web-based fitness platform that turns your laptop or desktop computer into an advanced, motion-tracking digital personal trainer, complete with real-time personalized feedback and guidance. 

Technically speaking, it leverages computer vision technology and artificial intelligence to analyze motion and provide real-time training feedback. Humanly speaking, it tells you when you’re dragging ass—or potentially setting yourself up for injury. 

Unlike, say, Tempo, which offers some motion tracking functionality but requires you to spend thousands of dollars on 100-plus pounds of bulky equipment, Kemtai provides you with personalized, real-time training feedback and guidance during workouts right from your web browser. And it works on virtually any computer with a camera.

Behind the lens, Kemtai captures and tracks 44 different data points on your body—more than any other motion-tracking fitness product available, apparently. In addition to real-time training feedback and guidance during workouts, one of the best perks is being able to see quantitative results from one workout to the next, and even from rep to rep.

The service costs $19 per month, which will give you access to diverse workouts and series from a range of different trainers and workout styles ranging from HIIT and strength training to yoga and Pilates, but you can actually access Kemtai’s coolest feature for free here. Kemtai Now is the platform’s AI-based custom workout builder, and it is definitely one of the quickest and simplest ways we’ve found to get a sweat on when there isn’t a ton of time and we don’t feel like searching around for the perfect workout. The feature is capable of assembling endless unique workout combinations based on your preferences,

This Supplement Combats Cravings

September 15, 2021

Nucific’s Bio X4 is a supplement we are trying now – why? Because it purports to deal with cravings for fat and sugar. It contains powerful probiotics from 5 strains to provide a healthier balance of “good” gut bacteria. Think: relief from bloating. It also has 3 key digestive enzymes: amylase, lipase and bromelain to help better break down the food and help absorb more of the energy and nutrients – making your whole body feel healthy and perform at its peak.

It also contains EGCG, a compound in green tea, which helps boost your metabolism and give you natural energy. And the Caralluma Fimbriata in the product helps curb unhealthy food cravings.

Of course, results vary for consumers because all individuals are unique. But they do offer a 90-day money-back guarantee – if you don’t see results you don’t have to worry. I love that.

Nucific is also offering readers 25% off sitewide on their products. Using code NUCIFIC25 at checkout!

Here’s the breakdown!
