The ultimate bio-hack has arrived to town. I would love to explain the science behind Osteostrong as simply as possible. but I’ll probably the bungle the paraphrasing. Here is what I pulled from their website which explains the benefits of osteoloading simply:
OsteoStrong sessions utilize a series of robotic musculoskeletal treatment devices that allow axial compression of bone to emulate the effect of impact. Because of the robotic optimized positioning of the human body, loading forces go through the human bone that is far higher than those seen in daily activity or exercise. Heavy loading is already understood and recommended by all international bodies of medical education, but at OsteoStrong, we make it safer.
A force of 4.2 multiples of body weight is the minimum required force to trigger bone growth in the hip joint (the most important place to avoid fracture) and peak forces with adults in conventional resistance exercise only show 1.26 to 1.54 multiples of body weight (1).

And simple it is. And fun. And fast. And it’s beautiful and the owners are incredible and if Tony Robbins is a partner then I’m in.
You basically hop on a machine – exert your best effort to push, pull or press for what feels like a few seconds (60!). Move to the next. And in around 7 minutes, you are done.
OsteoStrong uses the Spectrum System to deliver unprecedented results. Spectrum is first-in-class of a new category devices called Robotic Musculoskeletal Development System (RMDS).
THE ULTIMATE BIOHACK
OsteoStrong works for people at all ages and levels of activity to promote skeletal strength which impacts the entire body in many ways using a process known as Osteogenic Loading. Sessions are quick, painless, and results are measurable and happen quickly.
OsteoStrong sessions utilize a series of robotic musculoskeletal treatment devices that allow axial compression of bone. Because of the robotic optimized positioning of the human body, loading forces go through the human bone that is far higher than those seen in daily activity or exercise.
There are a few things you need to know prior to coming in for your first visit, which will help make the most of your OsteoStrong experience.
While OsteoStrong is not a gym, we do support a regular exercise regimen; however, we recommend that you do not exercise at least 3 hours before a session as this will produce quicker results.
Come as you are. Sessions are quick and only take ten sweat-free minutes once per week. You will feel comfortable wearing anything from business casual to regular street clothes. We see everything from slacks to yoga pants.
Almost any shoes are appropriate as long as they do not have a large heel. Some of our members bring a second pair of shoes or just wear their socks while they do their session and all of our facilities have a place for you to put your other shoes if you need.
SKIRTS + DRESSES
During your session, you will be sitting on a few of our specialized devices. Some of our members prefer to wear pants, shorts, or slacks instead of a skirt or dress.
Regular sessions generally take 10 minutes or less. However, your first visit to OsteoStrong will be longer because of the initial orientation and education. We also want to know more about you and any personal needs or expectations that you may have.
END OF SESSION
After you complete your session, we will not rush you out of the facility. Your certified technician will spend time with you to answer whatever questions you may have about your session, what type of results you can expect and the available membership plans.
And then you get to chill on the PEMF chair, headset and headphones on, listen to Binaural beats and CHILL!!
OH! We need to look into this supplement. It’s Osteostrong approved !

If you are sitting in the sun and soaking up real rays to get tan (and not for a hit of Vitamin D) then STOP NOW!
You know better!
There’s a revolutionary new tanning brand MineTan, a favorite in Australia and now launching their ‘picture-perfect’ self-tan in the US and I think you all will dig it.
MineTan ( www.minetanbodyskin.com ) is a 1 hour-self–tanner. Yup. No ruining sheets overnight waiting for your tan to arrive. It contains skin loving, PETA-approved ingredients that truly benefit skin, including moisturizing antioxidants and oils like argan oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, coconut water, shea butter and more. Every product is free of parabens, contains 100% natural DHA and is vegan friendly.
All quite unique for a tanning brand, as you may already know.
You can achieve a streak-free, bronzed babe look in just one hour – or leave it on longer for a darker result.
MineTan has an inclusive color range, challenging the industry-wide standard of three (light, medium, dark) size-fits-all approach to tanners, by exploring the nuances of undertone. This really makes the product stand out from the rest.
Offering a comprehensive range of the most advanced tanning products available, MineTan’s one-hour tan is just one of their many world-first, skin-friendly formulas launching to US customers online and in Ulta Beauty stores. (One is near Target on La Brea and SM Blvd). You can order what type you want (foam, spray, etc) – and the formula for your skin type. It’s as close to custom as you can get!
Other notable groundbreakers include a range of nourishing coconut-water based tans, a fitness tan and a personal spray tan kit.
With all of the 1 hour tans, you choose your preferred custom color depth skin finish by deciding when you shower. I love that part.
And, you can then wash off for 45 seconds and you are good to go, with a personalized tan that is all ‘mine’. Teehee.
Some people get excited when they spot a celebrity. I get giddy when I meet a new practitioner, healer, therapist, colorist, doctor, teacher, and in this case, aesthetician. Candace Marino is one of those rising stars. Candace works out of the mecca that is Jason Emer, MD’s office. It really is way more than an office, it’s a destination. Dr. Emer is on the cutting edge of everything. Recently he performed some facial contouring and sculpting with Radiesse, Belotero and Xeomin and I am in awe. His eye is impeccable and his understanding of the face is as well. It’s the combo of artistry and technique that catapults a doctor to the top of, and it’s no wonder Dr. Emer is the most sought out person in town. I never want anyone else to touch my face – I am totally obsessed with my cheekbones right now. I look natural and just…better. Not fake, not stuffed, not tacky, not like a Real Housewife of anywhere. Just really freaking solid for my age. And well, prettier. Wow. I can say that. That is for sure not something that comes easily to me.
Ok, so in Dr. Emer’s office, the lovely Candace is doing her facial magic. Because this is a medical practice, Candace can do low-to-high grade medical peels and lasers of all kinds (I have never seen more in any office, btw). I had been really interested in the Reve peel and we discussed this but I didn’t have the downtime. So Candace looked at my skin and devised a custom facial : Dermal Infusion, Fire and Ice and Oxygen. Of course there was wonderful facial massage and cupping and it was all divine. Candace really knows her biz and also has that intuitive level of just being able to read someone’s skin. I am psyched to go back for more and really uncover even more of her talent. The practice is not a frou frou spa- it means business. Go when you are ready to really deal with your skin (once and for all). I cannot wait for you to try out Candace, you will LOVE her and everything this practice has to offer. You are in incredible hands.
