The Heart of the Matter of Exercise
The most important benefit of exercising is the strength and health of the most vital muscle in your body - your heart. Cardiovascular exercise is any type of exercise that increases the work of the heart and lungs.
Painless Laser Hair Removal is Possible
Electrolysis, once a popular procedure for permanent hair removal, is invasive, tedious, partially effective and can result in scarring or post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Although laser hair removal has been widely practiced for over a decade, most physicians offer outdated laser equipment and treatments are painful and results are only marginally effective; but there is an alternative.
Is this "your" year? The year you finally drop those pounds you put on during your pregnancy/her pregnancy/Christmas '06? The year you decide to bite the bullet and see a chiropractor/laser eye doctor/acupuncturist/hair colorist?

And if that maintenance just happens to result in a finer looking exterior, well, that's OK by us, too. No matter what self improvement's on your list for '09, chances are that there's a Santa Clarita pro who can help you achieve it.

It is crucial to include activities that work the gluteus maximus (butt) muscles into your exercise routine. This muscle burns fat, increases testosterone and releases growth hormone.
Acupuncture for Prevention
Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can prevent colds and flu by building up the immune system. Specific points along the energy pathways, or meridians, are known for strengthening the circulation of blood and energy and for consolidating the outer defense layers of the skin (Wei Qi) so that germs and viruses cannot enter through them.
Footwear Technology makes Walking a Safer, more Effective Workout
Today's footwear designs can help your entire body look and feel better by improving posture, absorbing shock, correcting faulty gait patterns and enhancing athletic performance. Some footwear can help burn more calories while walking and strengthen core muscles.
Walking Off the Weight Starts with the First Step
The right footwear can be your first step toward total body fitness. Walking 30 minutes a day has tremendous health benefits including: reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke; type-2 diabetes, osteoporosis, reducing feelings of stress and depression; weight loss.
10 Commandments of Healthy Eating: Beware of Saturated Fats
Not all fats are created equal. Although some fats positively affect our health, it is also important to remember that other fats, like saturated fats, can raise cholesterol in your blood and increase your risk of heart disease.
Everyone loves the idea of having clear, unblemished skin. But in reality, few people get through life without realizing their fair share of pimples. While an occasional break-out may seem like a crisis, it's a relatively small problem compared to the often unrelenting anguish of acne.
